Thank you Food Network and The Cooking Channel!
It's been an interesting week for me!
I threw a couple of racks of beef ribs into the Big Poppa drum...
Carved and bagged a few up then headed to the lake to do some thinking...
I threw a line in but didn't really pay attention to it...
Just sat on the tailgate and enjoyed being out there...
I received a nice email from the Food Network about being a contestant on the Great Food Truck Race show.
The show is hosted by Tyler Florence (whom I think is great).. and involves several teams of 3 (per truck) who travel across the US vending their culinary delights from a food truck. The team who sells the most overall, gets to keep their food truck.
I was very honored to be contacted!
Even though I love cooking, I can't see me inside of a food truck so I politely declined.
I will be looking forward to watching the show to see who the teams are. :)
A kind person from the Cooking Channel also contacted me about the Man Fire Food show hosted by Roger Mooking. I love that show! Roger travels across the US, visiting outdoor cooks like me.
While I can relate more to the Man Fire Food show than the Great Food Truck Race show, they are looking to shoot in the next two weeks. Among other things, there's no way I could wrangle that into my schedule. lol
I politely turned down that offer too.
I want to say a big Thank you to both!! I am honored to have been given the offers.
BTW... I didn't catch one single fish.
