A couple of comments.. 1) Thanks for sharing! Serious BBQ is one of the first books I bought when getting into BBQ. It really opened my eyes; 2) Food and set up look fantastic!; 3) APL is thinner than I thought he'd be.
Actually, he looks in fit condition. Perhaps his next book should be entitled "Stay Fit Recipes of a Kick Arse BBQ Chef ~ Secrets to My Success (I'd buy that); 4) Pitfolk? Probably doubles as security and 5) You're a lucky dude!
Very cool post!
Oh and hey, I just noticed that this post has made me a "Full Fledged Farker." Just one more reason your post is so awesome!
