    now that we're going to be grilling again, i thought it was time to get back into using a charcoal grill. i crossed over to the dark side a few years ago switching to a gas grill, mainly for convenience/laziness. but this past winter, we had the opportunity to enjoy real charcoal grilled...

    there's only a few days left to play the game (it's kinda lame), but when you do you're entered to win a fishing boat from good luck. if you win, you owe me a trip out on the lake of your choice. beer's on me.
