Gramma’s Cooking, Real Good BBQ Sauce, Jesus’ Resurrection, Mama’s Embrace, and Life in God’s Grace

BBQI love BBQ.  Real Good BBQ.

On October 27, 2013 at the Patterson Avenue Baptist Church I invited some of the young men (boys) in the church to help me make BBQ sauce. As we cooked, I told them a few stories…

  • About My Jewish Grandmother Teaching Me To Cook
  • About My Son And I Learning How To Smoke Beef, Chicken, & Pork
  • About How He & I Learned How To Make BBQ Sauce
  • About My Mother’s Embrace When I Was Lost & Then Found
  • About Our HOME In God’s Grace Embrace

While I told these stories, these young fellows helped me add ingredients to make BBQ Sauce – which everyone was able to taste following the service.

It was a GREAT DAY, lots of fun and laughter – as it should be whenever God’s GRACE is illustrated with good BBQ.  The video below is only about 10 minutes long.  I invite you to watch it…and if you like it, please share with your friends via social media.


Oh, if   you like the vest I was wearing, it was a gift from my kids on my 50th Birthday.  You can check it our here:

A seasoned outdoor chef attempts to prepare for all external variables. But it’s an impossible feat. The prep tray overflows with spatulas, BBQ forks, tongs, brushes, thermometers, spices, plates, and of course, beer. A chef’s space is an overcrowded one, to say the least, but every tool is essential to the mission. They were dark times; summer afternoons littered with burnt meats and overly charred vegetables. Standing at a grill fixated on cooking — on creating! — was an impossible task. You had to depend on the kindness of friends and family to run and retrieve things you had forgotten in the kitchen. A quick grab for the tongs could mean spilling your beer. The spice was flowing… on the ground when you dropped it. That was, until the Tactical Apron was born. Emblazoned with the title CHEF and equipped with a MOLLE system, you’ll feel like a Soldier of Beef! The Tactical Apron is not intended for use in combat against anything other than a grill or smoker. It will not prevent injury from shrapnel, bullets, Pokemon, or other projectiles.
