Startin' The Fire - By George Hensler

Mais, I got this cool book in the mail today, written by my frien George Hensler who is a regular on the comp bbq circuit. I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but I scanned thru it and it looks to be chock full of good information about getting started on the comp bbq trail, and frankly I think it would be a good read for anyone who just wants to elevate their back yard bbq game. Now why don't y'all git off yer nickle and go on over to Amazon and order a couple dozen copies and give one to all yer friends, yeh.
