Be The Best.

Go ahead and smoke.

A friend of mine works for a company that produces smokers.  You know, those things that cook food and you add smoke to flavour the food along the way.

I knew as much about smoking food as I do about mechanics.  Those who know me well, understand that this means ‘tres petit’.

Anyhoo, my friend Mike wanted a few vids about smoking food, so I said sure.

Here’s what I didn’t expect.  How fun it was and how much it brought the guys together…(guys love standing around something that is cooking and smoking and half-burning with some sort of beverage in their hand)…it’s that old ancient fire thing that we guys love.

When the pork was ready, the pulled pork sandwiches and smoked corn on the cob was incredible.

A successful first smoke, but here’s what I love about the process.  How it unites friends and family and brought people together.

When I said grace, I asked God to be with Chris as well as he joined us in spirit for some amazing food, family and friendship.

That is something he always loved.
