I have lived in California all my life. I have a beautiful family. I love to cook, grill, grill and grill some more. I coach jr football, assist freestyle wrestling and follow my kids (4) to all their school and sporting activities. Football, wrestling, Basketball, Soccer, etc.
My favorite things to cook
I love to BBQ and grill.
Spare Ribs, whole chickens, Tri-Tip and Shrimp are my specialties.
Mexican food is my next favorite, I love crunchy tacos with, grilled talapia, grilled striper, slow cooked and shredded venison and elk.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Just about every holiday I will BBQ and invite the whole family out.
Since being diagnosed with Type II Diabetes I have spun around and am dabbing in grilling fish, veggies, and fruits. It's different but it's on the grill.
My cooking triumphs
I BBQ'd for a private party of 100.It was a big success. My brother and I cooked:
Spare Ribs, 1/4 chickens, whole chickens, hot links, garlic buttered grilled shrimp, chili beans, potato salad, macaroni salad, grilled corn on the cobb and home made salsa. It was delivered 30 minutes ahead of schedule. Since then we have cooked for them several times.
My cooking tragedies
My first time on the grill alone I burned all the food. My Dad had to rescue me. I can't remember what we ate after that but that sure was a lesson learned. He did try to work with me but as a teen I thought I knew it all, this was 26 years ago. He was the master of the grill and since then I have improved dramatically. I appreciate you Pops
