I’ve never been much of a griller, but it’s definitely a skill I’m continuing to improve. I started having a BBQ in 2016 when Sarah was leaving for Texas for her first job.

Jimmy had informed us about a very large BBQ festival near his hometown in Indiana while he was still living in Michigan. But we were too late for it last year. So this year I grabbed a handful of friends that were willing to make the 7 hour trek to Jimmy’s in Indiana for good food, good friends, good times, and good memories.Read more "International Bar-B-Q Festival"
