So, my 5 1/2 year old son brings me a Dr. Suess book for our nightly story. I tell him I don't want to read Dr. Seuss so I tell him "let's read a book about BBQ". So I get out Smoke and Spice and read the first couple of pages. I know he's not absorbing any of it other than BBQ, pork, smoker, pit but I figure if he's interested enough to sit for 5-10 minutes and listen to me read about BBQ then maybe he'll be interested enough to learn as he grows up and he'll have a hell of a pit to cook on.

Is this demented???? ;)

Not really... But make sure he really wants to be a BBQer like you.. He might want to be a scientist or something else....That is a cool bedtime story though..can you make a video and read it to us sometime? :shock:

Yes you are demented! :LOL: Both of my boys love to cook out. I miss my youngest (Lyle) who is gone now. He could cook some mean chicken on his own pit he made. That kid had it down. Keep reading Bubba! :D

Hey Bubba,
Why don't you try and mix Smoke and Spice with Dr. Seuss, and make it a really good read! :shock:
Hmmm maybe you have something going here ;)

If he can sit and listen to you read out loud, then his power of attention and concentration is very high, and will turn out very successful. :roll: :LOL:

In the land of Barbequezell, live briskets and butts,
and snerkwads and snoozles, eat zizzerbee nuts!

In your magic zoo-quer with sticks made of wood
from the Horn-Swonkle Tree
From the land called Snoo-Snood
You'll smoke up the meat
from the beast called Ba-zood!
Till it reaches 200
And then it's called FOOD!

But be ever so careful
To watch as you toil,
The Momma-Thermeter
And the Bubba Q Zoil!
For the moment is coming
The pain will be ROYAL.
Should you drop the Q-zonker
And forget the FOIL!


I tickle myself sometimes!

Same fellings.

There isn't that much, but ensure he is sincere about wanting to cook barbecue like you. It's possible that he aspires to be a researcher or does something else that would make a good bedtime story.
