My background has been in North American corporate sales for over 17 years and due to a recent downsizing where my job was eliminated, I’ve decided to slow down and really take a serious look at where the second half of my working life should go.
Food has always been a passion and during my business travels, I’ve enjoyed many a roadside BBQ shack. So in between searching for a job, I’m also taking advantage of this newly found extra time to explore it a little more closely and make it at home!
I started this blog to document the ups and downs of losing a job plus being at a crossroads at the ripe age of 41. What you will find here are my thoughts along the way as I deal with life’s changes plus the interesting tidbits that I have learned about southern BBQ.
You may wonder how does BBQ have any correlation with life lessons? Well, as with anything in life: “Good barbecue comes from experience, and experience, well, that comes from poor barbecue” – Cousin Woodman. 🙂
I thank you for coming along for the ride with me,
