One summer I decide I was going to learn how to barbeque, so I cooked on my grill every night for several months.. I ate a lot of raw food, burnt food, burned on the outside - raw on the inside food. But, by the end of the summer I had gotten pretty good at it. So much so that I cooked a turkey for ten on the grill forThanksgiving that year.
I was young and single back then so I was the only one who had to eat the boo boos.
There was no interweb or FoodTV back then so I had no help on that front. I did have a good time getting it all figured out though.
