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.

And Your Bird Can Sing: Tater tales and unemployment

I know my posts have been infrequent, but there should be more activity coming soon. To be brief, I am no longer working at the restaurant. I'm puzzling over my next move and still cooking barbecue and catering and in love with wood-fire cookery as much, if not more than ever. I am doing more baking than ever and have my post on bagels coming up....A big thanks to everyone that has been so supportive!

These are leftover mashed potatoes with melted butter on the bottom and top. We fried the pancake on the stovetop and then put it under the broiler to brown the top. Delicious and a great way to use up mashed taters, which don't reheat so well.

Southern Hospitality is looking for a new pitmaster. You'd be great for it!!! From what I understand Justin Timberlake is looking to expand into a new space in Chelsea and you would certainly make good competition for R.U.B., Hill County, & Hog Heaven in that neighborhood. (Not to mention Dr. BBQ at the original S.H.).

Wouldn't it be nice to make your own bones in NYC without having to live under Lou's Eloise's rather "big" shadow? From what I've read about your talents I really think you can strike out on your own in the restaurant world and devastate the competition.
