Yes, it is coming! Cooking and eating for real men: dude food Tuesday!

When I tasted the smokey flavor of a piece of slow cooked porc I immediately wanted to jump on a Harley and drive along the Route 66. Preferably tagging along one of those smokers.
When you see the me at and event or festival, taste something from those grills (doesn’t matter what, really) and you’ll know what I mean!
