    i have Q'd lots over the years and today was one of the best times i ever had in my life cooking. she just turned 6 and usually has the attention span of a gnat..lol

    she peeled the garlic,the onion...and stayed with me all the way until the meat when into the smoker.. including all the times i went and checked on it..and of course for the taste testing..lol

    I love the time my older daughter spends with me coking and smoking. Now that she's off to college, we only get to do it on occasion over her breaks. Enjoy the company as they grow up fast!

    Looks like you both had a really good time. I love it when my kids decide they actually want to help me instead of me telling them to help. [​IMG] It all looks delicious too.

    Nice smoke, and finished meal. I bet that feels good to have a young one around with a serious interest in the craft...standing by you helping out and learning. That's a great thing, Teacup!

    Keep it rolling! It's nice to see the younger generations taking interest in what we love to do.

    Nice looking loaves and special points for the recruitment. Nice work you too.

    Great job Kasey!
    Make sure you keep that guy in line and he'll be a great cook before you know it.
