In His Own Words
"Like most folks, a sizzling, smoky grill has often been the centerpiece of my family’s activities, life events, joy and laughter, from my earliest memories. Cooking food over flames, surrounded by our "tribes", and eating as a community is part of our ancestral DNA, and the joy we each experience in doing so is part of what makes us uniquely human. As a cookbook author, food blogger, and menu designer, I have the privilege of sharing with folks my own ideas, tips, and recipes for making the most of these invaluable moments, by making great food. It's been an honor to partner with Sears, who for generations has been "the barbecue store" for millions of families, and to join with the cadre of grilling rock-stars they have assembled on the Grilling is Happiness blog. I'm the luckiest guy in the world!"
