I am an Electrician who enjoys cooking for my family and friends. I find it relaxing to cook, especially on the weekends when I have the time to tinker. I really appreciate Sunday afternoons when I get to cook, watch a Packer game, and sip on a Beer or three, or six :). I enjoy taking the kids to the beach, Boating, Fishing, Camping, Hunting, Backyard Barbecues, and Eating good food which I can incorporate into any of the above mentioned interests!
My favorite things to cook
I have a lot of favorites but if I had to pick one I would say I enjoy Smoking the best. I do all my smoking on a Weber grill, It has its disadvantages but it works pretty well for the backyard BBQ's I like to host.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving Turkey and trimmings, Christmas Prime Rib dinner, and making new ones!
My cooking triumphs
I recently was asked to cook for two Large parties The first of which involved 20 pounds of Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Grilled Venison Steaks with a Mushroom wine sauce, Grilled Lime and herb Shrimp and Italian Chicken Breast for 25 People for a Post golf outing party a friend of mine hosts every year his Sales Reps, Shortly after this party I prepared 30# of Jamaican Jerk Pork, 10# BBQ Pork and 20# Jerk Chicken, for 75 people all on my trusty Weber grill! Took 12 hours and two smoking sessions to prepare the second party and my wife was tired of all the food taking up space in our fridge marinading for several days , but with an apology, several Beers,and due dilligence I was able make something that everyone enjoyed! Whew!
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at Venison stew. I still get about it .....You would think after 24 years your buddy would forget about that one after all the successes but it was that bad......not to mention he's just that kind of friend...:)
