The Biesemeyer Modification
Shortly after building a extra long out-feed table for my Powermatic my son and his college buddies discovered it provided a nice spot for beer pong. All good fun but...

Father's Day Smoke
Guess I've become a cheap bastard...my father's day plan was to smoke some baby back pork ribs. Miso glazed ribs on the Weber Torpedo (a trusty weapon for the porkaterian). I'll get over my mini-rant soon, OK?. Baby-back ribs at our local supermarket (aka King's)...

the marijuana farm part 2
i think not. not if you're a legal commercial pot grower in WA state. some devastating developments in 2014 have left 2015 looking pretty dismal for those in the biz. i managed the development of San Juan Sun Grown (SJSG), one of the first state licensed cannabis growers in the USA. last March i was fully engaged (and enthusiastic) acquiring building permits and lining up sub contractors, etc. to build a tier 3 wa. state liquor control board(lcb) certified pot farm. exciting times in a chaotic 'budding' new industry...

Food For Thought
AKA The Marijuana Farm Part 1

one of my fav lunch treats is a really good veggie burger on fresh white bread with mayo, brie and thick slices of tomato seasoned with pepper and a dash of johnny's. this veggie puck out performs beef patties in some circumstances, a monumental admission for me the meataholic dude. the morningstar farm burger is not at all 'smokey' as the product description suggests. and though cook's mag totally dissed it in their reviews some others appreciate it as i do... a versatile, flavorfull meat stand-in.
apricot miso bbq glaze
shazzamm this one's a keeper. stewing fresh apricots with some sugar, smashed garlic and a dollop of miso. use as marinade and basting sauce for anything you throw on the grill. also a delicious condiment/dipping sauce. next time i'm going to try finishing off a plate w/ spoonfuls glaze and creme fraiche.
(slacker version... skip the fresh fruit and use apricot jam)
