So, it’s been a while since I’ve made an effort to actively blog on a regular basis. What can I say… I’ve been a little pre-occupied as of late. The coffee shop tends to take up a lot of my time these days and at times it can be a little difficult to squeeze in any sort of auxiliary activity. Lately I’ve been spending what little spare time I have making music and mastering the craft of traditional BBQ. Weird, right? I guess… But this whole venture seems to fall in line with my whole philosophy that if I don’t have something readily available in my geographic vicinity, I will just figure out how to do it myself. And that’s exactly what I plan to do. If I can’t make a trip to Texas to enjoy a world-class brisket, than I’m going to figure out how to make it in Muncie.
As with most things that I get into, I tend to go a bit off of the deep end in terms of research, experimentation, and execution. I figure that documenting this journey via my blog would be a good way to share my delicious progress with the masses. I’m bound to make some mistakes, and I’ll be sure to write about those as well. After all, I’m only human and am just as prone to distraction as the next.
This initial blog post is nothing more than a heads up that you will probably be seeing a number of BBQ related posts in the future. Don’t be alarmed. I will keep most of these blogs labeled as “Operation BBQ,” so that if you’re looking to avoid the delicious temptation, you can do so.
