One thing that helped warm my wife up to the idea of me cooking all the time was a rainy weekend we spent watching a marathon series of BBQ Pitmasters episodes. She got really hooked on the drama of watching the contestants face up to the judges and hear the results after watching the different things each cooker did to the same cut of meat. She started trying to figure out how we could make a run up to Austin to try Aaron's Que and see what makes it so much better than ours. We'd have to leave the house about 5:30 to get there in time to get in line, so we haven't made it yet.
