Good morning crew,
After the last issue a reader named Christopher wrote in with the following comment:
"Joe, thanks for the tips on chicken wings! I had to omit the cayenne pepper as I am the only one who likes food that spicy. But those were the best chicken wings I've ever made or eaten."
I'm glad they turned out so good for you, Christopher. Now I feel like I've done my good deed for the week. Like with so many things, the results show up in the preparation. I bet you'll never just rip open a package and throw a mess of wings on the grill again.
And if anybody picked up the BBQ Grilling Mats
I talked about in the last issue I'd love to hear how those worked out, too.
With these nonstick, high heat-resistant mats you can cook just about anything on a grill, like; shrimp, bacon, kabobs, and delicate fish fillets without everything falling through the grates and sticking to the grill.
If you're interested you can pick up a 2-pack of them right here for a great price, just in time for grilling season
Laugh it up,

An weathered farmer and his wife were leaning against the edge of their pig-pen when the woman wistfully recalled that the next week would mark their Silver wedding anniversary. 'Let's kill a pig and have a big BBQ party, Homer,' she suggested.'
The farmer scratched his grizzled head. 'Gee, Ethel,' he finally answered, 'I don't see why the pig should suffer for something that happened 25 years ago.'"
Five surgeons are having drinks together at a surgical convention and making jokes...
The first, a Florida surgeon, says: "I like to see accountants on my operating table, because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered."
The second, a Michigan surgeon, responds: "Yeah, but you should try electricians. Everything inside of them is color coded."
The third, a California surgeon, says: "No, I really think librarians are the best; everything inside of them is in alphabetical order."
The fourth, an New York surgeon, chimes in: "You know, I like construction workers. Those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over."
But the fifth, from Washington D.C. shut them all up when he observed, "You're all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There's no guts, no heart, no brains, no spine, and the head and the ass are interchangeable."
Guaranteed to Roll Your Eyes
While at a marine-supply store stocking up on equipment for my boat, I also purchased an inflatable life preserver. "It was my wife's idea," I explained to the grizzled salesman at the counter. "She's buying it for me as a gift."
"Lucky you," he said as he started to write up the order. "My wife got me a length of chain and a cement block."
