9781517234874: Curveballs: Sweet & Smokey Down the Barbeque Trail (a travelogue trilogy) (Volume 1)

I work in special education, and engage my fellow workers in barbeque debates without end. Listening to them, I exist in disbelief. It's like barbeque war. Only they make the greatest barbeque ever and only they know of the greatest barbeque place of all time. They would rather stop breathing than concede defeat. It wasn't an idle threat. I up and left in a whirlwind to find the truth. I never imagined that a pit master blowtorches ribs within earshot of the Gateway to the West or that a rib shack in the Home of Lincoln sneaks apples into their century old secret sauce or I'd be personally escorted into the deep workings of one of the most chomping smokehouses in America. But somewhere in there a car wreck detoured me, a lightning blast sent me scurrying, and a baseball game screwed up my plans. The preachings of a barbeque evangelist left me in a death grip, and I schmoozed with a Bear in the middle of Missouri. One second I'm watching TV and the next I'm whispering in the ear of an Idol. Oh what fun to watch naughty rotund guys work their craft! And somehow that dastardly man known as The Fever threw a curveball down the middle of all this. Damn him. Somewhere an Uncle Joe, right this second, unhunkered and on fire, slips a secret ingredient into his sauce that even the CIA won't discover. So come, help me find the secret, because it's the journey more than the destination.

About the Author:

He lives in Bloomington, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis. He has always lived in this area, but has traveled everywhere. He plays a mean game of chess and takes on all comers on the ping pong table, and don't even talk about Risk. When the sun is shining and the sky is blue you might find him whipping around town on his bicycle. But when he is at home he tries to mimic Milo the dog and lounge about doing nothing, for both believe that sleep is not a waste of time. He does the Circuit at the health club and in between workouts you can find him downing moose tracks ice cream or a triple chocolate chunk cookie or just maybe some ribs from Mr. McCoy! His favorite fruit is pears and he eats oatmeal like there's no tomorrow for breakfast. Hey, he also has a Master’s Degree from the University of St. Thomas.
