The Hampton Smoker

What's up wtih what's going down? Does a tree falling on the ocean with no one around make a sound? Barbecue, BBQ, Bar-b-que. It's all in how you sell it.

Vacation's All I Ever Wanted

Hi all--

Look for your pal, Backyard Chef, in this upcoming Sunday's New York Daily News. I was interviewed and photographed for a piece on grilling/bbq fanatics by the very cool Rachel Wharton. I know that my buddy Rob from Big Island Barbeque (NY State Grand Champions 2005 along w/ Dr. BBQ!!) is in the article as well, but that's about all I know on that score.

Just got back from a few days in Cape Cod with the in-laws. What a great time. The weather was perfect, and sunday night the bunch of us sat out under the stars eating some ribs and pulled pork that I brought, which we served with an amazing tomato salad put together by my brother-in-law Chef Tim. I get to cook with him about once a year if I'm lucky and it is a thrill and an honor.

Thanks for all the recent comments, especially with regard to my mother. She appreciates that you are all out there sending her your positive energy.

I should be cooking up a huge batch of 'que this weekend with Hiroshi out in the Hamptons, so I'll keep you posted.

Lastly, I've added the excellent Ole Smokey BBQ blog to the links section-- visit them, praise them and tell them the Hampton Smoker says hello.

NY Daily News! Will that interview and photo be available online? If not, I'm going to have to call the city of New York to send a copy to me out here in Montana.

Congratulations, Mr. Smoker ...

They had a blast, too, Rob. My dad was blown away by the Caja Chinas. Glad that BBQ-NYC has always been such a great event for NYC. You guys make alot of people happy-- good luck at the Royal (and wherever else you go).
