ID:	952416 Allow myself to (re)introduce...... myself......

    Oh, how I have missed my AR brothers and sisters!! I know that it has been FAR too long and I do apologize for going off grid as it were. 2020 has been.... well.... I don’t need to say it. We all know. We are all facing our own struggles. Life handed me a family size bag of rotten lemons, but I’ve worked my way through that rotten bag and am starting to finally get back to the sweet nectar! The good news is that I still have my health, my family is all well, we have completed our move to Indiana, and my brother Chuck is recovering very well from his 25’ leap of faith! Thank all of you again for your thoughts and prayers during that!

    I mentioned before how crummy 2020 has been for most of us. I’ve decided that to dwell on all of the struggles and negatives that I’ve endured this year, I would try and focus on the positives. And there have been some great ones! For instance, my wife and I welcomed our 3rd child back in March. My wife had high blood pressure and the doctor wanted to deliver the baby early. As it turns out, if we had waited, I would have not been allowed to be in the room for the birth. A blessing indeed! Also, I mentioned my brother. That truly sucked! BUT he is still here with us today and recovering very well! No surgeries (at least so far) and he can walk. Tremendous blessing! I was selected for a promotion and moved my family to the mid west, which has been amazing. And now we are rapidly approaching my absolute favorite time of year. Christmas! I find it no coincidence at all that on December 21st, we will have the rare opportunity to see the Christmas star better than we have in over 800 years. To me personally, that is a sign. A sign of hope. A reminder. I hope that it means something to you too, no matter your faith or your beliefs.

    Oh, and I’ve finally got my cookers back, too!!!!! Finding fuel and re learning how to cook in the new environment is a challenge, but I’m up for it!!! Tonight? Venison backstrap stuffed with sautéed onions, mushrooms, Boursin cheese, and wrapped in Bacon!!!

    Glad to be back, all!!!!

    • I cook on a 15-year-old Kamado #9, a huge beast nearly 6 feet tall and with black ceramic tile on the outside. I of course love smoked meats of all kinds, but also like quick cooks like chicken portions, pork tenderloins and fish. Really into cooking of all kinds. Just added an outdoor fire pit that has grilling capability and limited Santa Maria-style grill raising and lowering.

    Welcome back. Congrats on the new baby and very happy to hear that your brother is recovering. That sounded so scary when you first described it.
