Knock! Knock! Is This Thing On?

So, way back at the beginning of September, I posted about how busy I was and how I had a ton of stuff going on in my life.  Not much has changed.  My family is still nuts – I swear my girls get faster by the day – and work is still a bear.  But, it’s all good.  My girls are SUPER fun!  My wife and I are planning a week long vacation, something we haven’t done in about four years, and work is always interesting.

But, all that excitement means that I’ve been neglecting this place.  Not to fear though.  While I haven’t been posting, I’ve been thinking about this blog a lot and where I want to go with it.  The food part of it is great and I expect to continue on with some recipes as well as chronicling my adventures in the kitchen and on the grill / smoker.  I’ve also identified a few things I want to write about in the future.  Here’s just a little insight into what’s coming this way in the next few months:

  1. A multi-part series on how I’ve implemented a GTD-ish approach to life
  2. 3-Part series on travel guidance based upon everything I’ve learned in the last few months
  3. Product reviews for some cooking equipment
  4. Outline some potential modifications I plan on doing to my smoker
  5. Contemplations over my next smoker
  6. Discussions about some software I’m using and how they are best suited to my needs
  7. PS3 or Xbox – what should I buy?
  8. Any relevant sports discussions that come up

I hope you all stick around for the ride.  It’s sure to be fun!

Big Apple BBQ 2010 Review

Eating Everywhere, a place that I occasionally will write a restaurant review for, did a quick review on the Big Apple BBQ. Having attended this splendid event, I can assure you that, if you’re in the NYC next year when this event roles around, you undoubtedly should not miss it! Incredible food, beer, and fun!

From EatingEverywhere.com:

New York City is not often known for barbeque. That’s not to say we don’t have a number of fine establishments specializing in the slow process of smoking beef, pork, and chicken until they’re fall-off-the-bone tender. There are some good ones, and more opening all the time.
