I've been cooking & baking for years inside -- and have gotten darn good! Took up home canning several years ago (although I helped Mom do it when I was a kid). I've been cooking on the grill for years, too, but just started getting tasty stuff within the last couple of years. Everyone would just eat it out of pitty before! I've also gotten great at jerky! I make a mean green chile jerky and a beef fajita jerky!! Now I'm going to learn all I can about smoking meat! I got a smoker for my birthday a couple of years back. I've smoked a few things on it but I think people are eating out of pitty again when I do something. So I'll definitely take all of the help & advise I can get! I do make my own bbq sauce that I love, love, love. Got it perfected when I started canning. And I LOVE chiles of all kinds -- esp. New Mexico green chile! Susan "SuCasa"
