I have a large family with a variety of tastes often dinner time will be a couple of different meals. I do not sucribe to the "you get what I'm making" concept I grew up with. Meal times are one of the few times all six of us are in the same place. No one should dread what we are having for dinner. My oldest kids have started taking an interest in cooking which I think is pretty cool. We love to cook outside! Grill it, smoke it, or fry it! We also enjoy entertaining, nothing brings friends and family together like great food! But our favorite type of cooking/entertaining is tailgating!
My favorite things to cook
Pork butts, crabs, shrimp, anything with bacon, most types of fish, wings, make my own rubs and sauces, chops, chicken, all types of breakfast meals, chilli (traditional and white), appetizers.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Saturdays in football season, holiday meals, cooking with my wife and kids, everyone has a job in the kitchen.
