Maybe I need a new job, today was by far our biggest for sales and the longest for me for the week.

Nice, I like the

Nice, I like the refrigeration guys that come out to our store. I don't mind the cutters and managers ( my boss and I went to high school ogether) so much as the customers and the friggen store manager that sends people home early mon-fri and then expects them to stick around +4 hours on sat. I need to get my full 40 hours so of course I do it but I feel like if I'm gonna work a 12 hour shift I should get some overtime. Sry had to vent a little.

July 24 th BBQ

I am a firm believer in charcoal over gas, better flavour IMHO........Let the debate begin...LOL!

I bow to Greasy Paws as he is the BBQ master, the grill was my dad's, after he died my mom was going to throw it away as it was too big for just her, so I dragged it over to my house and have enjoyed it ever since, it's a bit beat up but it functions flawlessly.

Gas is all I know, all I have ever used , all I have ever eaten off of with one exception and the burgers tasted like lighter fluid. I know that's not how it will taste if it's done right, just no one I know uses charcoal.

I sympathize with anyone who works retail. If one is not a manager, one takes shit from all sides. My wife worked retail sales for many years, and often came home at night just absolutely livid.
I almost always made good money, so she didn't have to work, but by working she had money that was just hers, and she could spend any way she wanted without having to justify the expense.
Often I would tell her that she could just tell them to fuck themselves and walk out, but because of the reason above, she almost never did. She was as driven to work and be productive as I was. Both of us were raised that way, and had the examples of our parents.

My wife loves to cook outdoors, and is in 100% agreement with you about charcoal (or wood). She won't have a gas grill on the place. Her brother is really good at it, and also won't use a gas grill.
In the area in which we grew up in TX, there was lots of mesquite, and several huge pecan groves, so it's easy there to get dried and seasoned mesquite and pecan wood to add to the charcoal. Both give a very good flavor to the meat.
My wife also grills vegetables of all kinds. They're excellent cooked that way, if one knows what one is doing. The fire has to be just right before they are added, and they must be removed at just the right time.

Have you ever heard BBQ purists talk on the subject of BBQ vs. grilling? They insist that cooking outdoors on a grill is NOT barbequeing! Since my wife loves to do it, I want to build a proper pit in the back yard for her to use.

When I was a kid, my grandpa had a smokehouse (he raised hogs and cattle), and smoked meat every year when they were slaughtered. Slaughtering time was one of my favorite times. The whole family got involved, and everyone had jobs to do, from the oldest to the youngest. My mother's sisters and their families would come in from hundreds of miles away, and it was a great time for everyone.

Yes ecaman, sorry

grilling VS BBQ is like clip VS magazine, it means a lot to certain people, I stand corrected and I would wager GP will correct me further....lol!

Grilling is not BBQing. Grilling = hot and fast, BBQ Low and slow
Its magazine not clip it makes my teeth grind when here someone call a magazine a clip
