Long and short of it: wife won't let me smoke tobacco so I like to cook over charcoal and wood. Bacon is my favorite meat, so I have been experimenting with making bacon. I love cooking anything and everything low and slow, particularly if coffee (morning) and beer (I usually wait til at least noon) can be involved. I look forward to learning lots of important things here and then if my other get-rich-quick schemes don't work (lottery, best seller, find discarded huge amounts of cash) perhaps going into artisanal bacon, or doing that as a retirement gig. God bless everybody here.
