No, I am not dead , just in case you were wondering. I have not been able to post lately. I did get another computer to replace the dead dinosaur but travel and work have prevented me from posting and cooking as much as I would like. I can no longer access any blog or RSS news service from my work computer. (STUPID FIREWALL!) My part-time music commitments (playing bass and singing in a local group) have had me on the road every weekend for over a month and there will be no break until October. So much for cooking in or visiting an competitions this year. Did I mention it was part-time?

I hope everyone has seen (or will see) the Food Network special on the Mobile contest from March. I wish they would do more of these. Anyway, my partner (Kudzu) and I got a few frames in the show. Most of mine were “B-roll” with me in the background. The was me in the orange tie-dye shirt walking around the EZ-UP as Chris Lilly was getting DQ’d. But the winning shot was of Kudzu turning our chicken in with 3 seconds to spare. It made the show twice. I hear the execs @ Food Network were so impressed with his on camera persona that they offered him a new cooking show. A show name has not been selected yet but it will star Kent “CHICKEN BOOGIE” Lenox. Good bye Hazel Green – Hello Hollywood!

I probably will cook up some wings and a fattie on the WSM tomorrow. Got a lot going on and will not be able to do anything too time consuming. If I get a chance I’ll post some pics in the near future.

I hope everyone has a great 4th. Remember what we are celebrating. It’s not about the cooking, drinking or even having fun. It’s about celebrating our freedom. Love it or not our country is the best thing going. I hope each of you share that feeling. Of course, if you don’t think America is the best, you are free to find a better one.

Happy 4th. Talk to you soon

Ole Smokey
