Okay so, I have been neglecting some stuff lately, this blog being one of them. I looked it up and found that I haven't done an entry since DECEMBER! I apologize.
Moving on though, it's a new season at our shop and a new season of grilling and BBQ season. Mind you that is the normal people's grilling/BBQing season. Some of us believe it to be a year round sport but, I digress. Things are getting busy in a hurry. I've had a shift change over the past couple of months at my "Clark Kent" job and it has cause the making of BBQ Sauce schedule to be changed as well throwing everything up into the air. I've decided I am sick and tired of sitting on the fences when it comes to wishing to partake in competitive BBQ and am bound and determined to start really competing. I've acquired a new tank to build a new long-haul-worthy rig with and construction is already underway. It will be unlike anything seen before. Like most people, I'm also sick and tired of working another job and want to be doing BBQ stuff full time, what all that entails yet, I am not sure but, that is the goal at this point.
Another area that I've seriously been lacking is my videos. Considering I made it up to 7 episodes my first go at it. I'm going to call that season 1 and the upcoming ones are going to be season 2. Actually thinking about burning them all on to a DVD if I can find the time. Not sure if they will be for purchase though. My new work schedule has also cause some pains with my recording schedule and when I'm free, my lovely camera operator is not plus, I built a couple of smokers called UDS's and plan on using them and there was some discussion about how much to use them and if I should show a build video. After discussing it, they will be used but, when it comes to a build video, I'm better at explaining food than I am construction. Thinking about still releasing the build video but, it will not be considered a "Deep in the Sauce" episode.
One thing I am excited about is that we are going to be having special demo days at the shop where we will be open one Sunday out of the month and I get to do one of my favorite things, show people stuff to cook and talk grilling, BBQ, and cooking all day. This is hopefully going to be a lot of fun. There will be in store specials for people and sampling.
There is so much more I want to do, and even the stuff I want to do, I just don't have hardly enough time for. My new work schedule has really thrown a wrench into entering comps but, at the same time, I'm home every night to be with my family and that absolutely rocks!
I'd say more but, if I did, I probably wouldn't end up writing another entry for another 5 months. Keep checking back and feel free to drop me a line anytime: BigButzOrdering(at)Gmail.com
