~ All That Cookin' ~
~ A Page about Culinary Experimentation ~

~ And Dedicated to Glenn Crawford... Who's Idea it Was ~


Well, I certainly don't claim to be an accomplished cook by any means, I just like to cook and to experiment and see how it comes out... I am sure the ladies in the Kitchen Chat room can outdo me in any category

Maybe not in the smoker... I like to smoke things... Pork ribs, pork shoulder, beef brisket, turkey legs, chicken whole or in parts... ham... Whatever I can chase down and catch that will fit in the smoker...

and make Mexican stuff... and... and... whatever comes up that sounds good...

And most of the time it is at least edible...
