I am always ready to try something new and I LOVE to cook. It was probably the combination of those two traits that caused me to randomly purchase a charcoal smoker from Amazon. I would be lying if I said wine was not also a factor in that decision.
I have a mix of fascination and fear when it comes to BBQ. I am intoxicated by the aroma that fills the air during the summer and the amazing flavors produced by a skilled pitmaster. At the same time, I have always hesitated to step up to the grill myself. I envision giant fireballs and smoking lumps of meat that have been charred beyond recognition.
The aromas won in the end and I was determined to create something worthy of that beautiful pink smoke ring.
