Hello all you barbecue fanatics out there.  I would like to take a moment and tell you how much I have appreciated all the emails I have received since I retired this site.  I am divorced now, and after a few years of trying to keep it all together,  it was not to be.

I am in a new home now with my faithful dachshund; Ruby. I am still cooking as much as ever and have branched off into cheesecakes and desserts.  I still work everyday and answer emails everyday.

I do hope all of you are well and GOD is blessing you each and everyday.  Keep cooking and grilling and making folks happy with the results.

If there is a question you have, I will be happy to to answer anything that I can.

GOD Bless you,

BigIron

Well another year has gone by and I find myself another year older.  I have been blessed beyond my wildest dreams. 

Do I have a load of money?  No. 

Am I rich?  More than I could ever imagine.  This weekend will be great and full of my kind of fun. 

I wanted to share a few bad photos of me, and some great ones of Ruby.

Hey folks.  Yes it has been awhile since I posted and I apologize for not keeping up.  To tell you the truth it has just been a madhouse getting Ruby used to a new home, school starting back and this darn midwest weather.

I am working on a copy of Maurice’s BBQ sauce and plan on posting it when I get it right.  The garden suffered over that past few weeks due to getting the BigIron re-shingled.  There was some damage to Lil’Iron’s beautiful peppers.  I am trying to use or dry as many as possible but I will end up losing a few.

On top of all this, I am in the middle of having reapirs done on my teeth.  I went for a checkup and found problems I didn’t even know I had.  Goes to show, nomatter how much you brush and floss trouble can pop-up and ruin a few weeks.  I plan to have “the tools of the trade” all fixed before Thanksgiving.  Who wants to crack a tooth on that weekend?

My Birthday is in a week or so and as I get older, things start to go south before you know it……..but the experience gained from age on the cooking front sure does make the food taste better.

My Mom sent me this Woolworth menu from the 50’s.  I thought you might find the prices pretty interesting too.  So here is a bit of nostalgia for you folks to ponder over…and if your old enough, you can remember these days with fondness.

I hope all is well in your neck of the woods.  Have a safe back to school and remember it won’t be long till Fall…..and ain’t that when smoked food taste the best?

Have a great week,

BigIron

This weekend was Ruby’s first session around the smoker.  She seemed to take to the process in between playing with Riley and getting spooked by unfamiliar sounds.

Lil’ Iron roasted a Turkey this weekend and Ruby also got her first taste of Thanksgiving in July……Lord help us, we might have created a monster.  🙂

I hope everyone had a great weekend and have a safe and wonderful week,

Hello barbecue guys and gals.  Here at the BigIron we have a new addition to the household. We went down to the animal shelter and got Riley a pal to play with.

Ruby, is a 1 1/2 year old weiner dog. She is getting used to the household and has already learned to walk under Riley and steal his ball out of his mouth. He seems to really get along with this little girl and believe me, there is no boredom here.

She will be a great company during the long smokes at the rig and something for Riley to play with that isn’t a cat.

There is no sign of jealousy between the dogs and they are getting along really good considering the size difference. Riley thinks she is a cat that plays like a dog, and Ruby thinks she is a Golden Retreiver.

T.V has met it’s match. This is REAL entertainment.

I hope you all have a great weekend and happy grilling,
BigIron

 I added some new tunes on the “Videos for grilling” page.  Check em out and turn it up. 

The weekend is almost here and guess what? 

YUP!  We are expecting more snow.   Well, at least I have a hot woman and cool pets to get me through.

Merry Christmas everybody.  I wanted to share with you our 11 month old Golden Retriever puppy enjoying his first snow, and his first Christmas.

Do you remember being this happy at the simplest things? The first time you saw snow? The first time for so many things…..

A golden puppy will sure make you remember all the joys of youth.  So turn up the speakers and take in the child like expressions of this wonderful breed……

the Golden retriever puppy.
