The Grillin’ Kind

The Grillin’ Kind

I love to grill. Love it. We cook out most of the year, despite the Midwest weather’s objections. If it’s above zero degrees, we cook. If it’s not a tornado, we cook.

Slick New Site!

So here’s my first post on my slick new site. I’m trying to keep it simple and easy…uncomplicated might be a better description. Of course, that’s not in my nature. Full-blown, top of the line, all or nothing! That’s more my style. More to...
