About this Cook
Been in the food service business on and off for 20 years now. Looking into finally starting my own catering business next 3 years or so.
My favorite things to cook
Anything on the grill.
My favorite family cooking traditions
None handed down. Making my own to hand down!!!!!!
My cooking triumphs
Ribs!!! Finally got it looking AND tasting like the pros!
My cooking tragedies
Had friends over for dinner. One of my friends was from Englnad, never really had genuine BBQ. Was doing a beer can chicken with cheese brats for an appetizer (his choice, not mine). Got both on the grill at the same time (1st mistake). Put lid down, no clue why I did it but I did (2nd mistake). Then went in house (3rd mistake)to get beer. Got back out and had blackened chicken and VERY blackened brats. My wife (hell, my right hand woman) saved my butt by having chicken thawing for dinner for the next day. So it wasn't a TOTAL loss!!! Ended up having excellent grilled chicken breasts!

Fluffy French Toast
Very yummy. I thought the flour weird but it didn't take anything away from the taste.

Fajita Marinade I
Too much lime juice!!!! Flavor was good but not great. Don't know what to substitute for the lime, maybe a little less of it?
