I SMELL SMOKE!!!

I recently relocated to Toledo from Maumee. I'm a proud HOME OWNER!
NOTE: I SEE YOU!
Back in or around 1990, my local ISP gave a small amount of space for
people who wanted to have a personal web page. Being the experimental
one, I decided to put some of my interests along with a couple of
For the recipes I wanted but didn't have, I asked friends to email
them to me or find them for me. My one or two recipes turned out to
be about a whole page of just about EVERYTHING. All in all though,
the top interest I had was BARBECUING.
When I built the page I had found a free page counter so I could see
just how many people came to visit and where they came from. Things
got a little crazy in my life for a while and I didn' t do much with
the page for months or maybe even a year or so. When I went to the
recipe page to see if it was still there, the page counter had what
I thought was some OTHER sites statistics listed! What I understand
now as "spidered", my page had been found by several thousands of
people from AMERICA to ZIMBABWE! I was dumbfounded!
So, here we are with a totally new design of the site I thought to put
up for fun a few years ago. I wanted to be able to publish what I want
and such so I purchased a hosting account to play with. We even have the possibility of some cash
flow to pay for the host and such. HOW NICE!!
About my QUEING-
Before I graduated high school I was the grill king at home with Mom
and Dad. They went to great lengths to make sure I had plenty to do to
keep me out of trouble. Buying a top of the line Kenmore gas grill was
all it took for me to take over the cooking duties. Dad loved Sears!
I still have the repair manual for the grill that is dated 1974. The
grill has never required one replacement part and works as good today
as it did when we first put a tank of Hank Hill on it. I guess when you
build things to last it's not always a good idea as CHARMGLOW, the
manufacturer for Sears Kenmore, has been sourced out to a forgien country for many years.
I can remember on The Price Is Right, Charmglow was THE prize to have.
Too bad. Fear not though! The Weber Company has saved the day! No matter what brand name grill you have the principal is the same for cooking! Do you drive one make car much different than another? Home Depot sells grills using the name CHARMGLOW but the grills are made by BRINKMAN! I got this information directly FROM: Jeff Usrey Customer Service The Brinkmann Corp. 800-527-0717
I get visitors looking for CHARMGLOW recipes every once in a while as well as WEBER recipes. Unless a recipe calls for some special apparatus, I can't think of any reason the recipes I have stocked in the recipe pit won't work for you. If you are looking for WEBER repair parts, my Amazon store could probably find them for you. I'll try and do some research on the parts problem.
Some may argue...
If you found my site you probably searched for a certain term or cut right?
I have no doubt you will come across hard core Barbecuer's saying that
grilling is grilling (especially when we talk propane grilling), and true
BARBECUING is done over an open all natural fire with charcoal. I say that
no matter what causes the fire, you are BARBECUING while you are grilling!
The important thing is that you are having fun and are making memories of a
lifetime grilling or Queing! HAVE FUN!!!
Speaking of memories.... I don't quite remember Dad and I posing for this photo but I can tell ya I sure look like I love the big guy! Photo circa 1961.
