This is it, the best of my three La Caja China Cookbooks, and fully illustrated…perfect for using the magic box to create amazing memories for every occasion! In the box, on the grill, sides, desserts, and the perfect drinks!
What an amazing time, and what a great group of people!
Luckily, as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words, ’cause I got about 11 million words I could share on how cool Ribfest was!
Me & Ty!
Here’s a visual rundown of the weekend, starting on Friday with the interview shoot at Kenmore Studios, then lunch at the Weber Grill Restaurant, and the VIP reception that evening with Ty Pennington(who’s one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet!)
Saturday was all about Ribfest…a long, hot, awesome, amazing day with a bunch of great new friends, next-level BBQ, and a chance to play with some of the best grills on the market. My 5-burner Kenmore with the side burner was the bomb!
Robyn, George, and I.
Saturday night, wilted, limp and still grinning, we returned to the hotel for one last dinner at the Sugar Toad restaurant (so good!) and to say our goodbyes. As George put it, it was like the last day at outdoor school (except for the martinis).
I can’t wait for the next opportunity to grill with these guys!
Oh, and I threw together some Dragon Claw appetizers for the crowd, which seemed to go over well. (They’re wrapped in bacon…go figure!)
So, I had a LOT of people ask me about Grilling is Happiness, and the blog, this weekend, and I guess, for me, what makes it so amazing is this…there are tons of places you can go online and get recipes, advice and grilling tips from “one guy’s or gal’s” perspective…but not many that bring together the level of experience, passion, and expertise from such a wide range of outdoor cooking experts as you’ll find at Grilling is Happiness.
That’s what makes it unique, you can be a trophy-winnin’ pit-master, or a have never picked up a pair of tongs…because there’s something there for anyone and everyone who loves to grill, or wants to learn!
