I am a 49 year old welder/fabricator. I am married to a great lady. We have 4 kids, and a grandson. I am almost obsessed with cooking and guitar playing.
My favorite things to cook
Cheesecakes, BBQ, fajitas,pies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Summertime bbq's for family and friends (usually around 150 people) and family Christmas dinner with prime rib and smoked turkey.
My cooking triumphs
I had a chef from Miami that ate at one of our cookouts this past summer. I had smoked Boston Butts, turkeys, chickens,and sausage. I grilled pork and beef loins, fried mushrooms, made baked beans, slaw and potato salad. The chef told me that my food was "phenomenal". I was on cloud 9!
My cooking tragedies
I made 2 cheesecakes one year for a lady for her family Thanksgiving dinner. The both cracked like mad. I was so dissapointed, but they loved the cheesecakes, so all was not lost.
