Brisket, ribs and wings from the superbowl.  Ribs were seasoned with the new spicy Dizzy Dust. Slammin, btw.


Tacos from a couple of nights ago. 

Hibachi from tonight featuring some manager special NY strips and left over Huli Huli chicken that I don’t have pics of. 

It’s been nice being able to unwind and cook lately. Life has been a little weird. My 6 month old recently decided to stop eating. We’ve been through a lot of doctors appts and many tests and procedures trying to find a cause. Thus far, no luck.  To meet his nutritional needs, he has a NG tube.  He is a happy, healthy, smart, cute little boy.  Who just won’t eat. It’s weird. Anyways here’s a recent picture, from Thursday before his endoscopy. Side note: I married a winner. She’s been a champ through the whole process.

    What a cute picture of the 3 of you. I hope they can figure out what’s going on for you guys.  There is absolutely nothing more stressful and scary when your child is sick.  My friend I will pray for the 3 of you, as i can only imagine the stres you are under. If there is anything Marci or I can do for you just say the word, and we will do our best to help

    Stay strong, I’m sure y’all will figure it out.

    I’m not trying to equate this with you issue as yours is way more serious for sure.  Several years ago, our food-driven dog just stopped eating.  We spent a small fortune on vet bills to figure it out - the vets couldn’t find anything.  She went from 35 pounds to 23 pounds in a few months... then one day she just up and started eating again.  She’s now a very healthy 30 pounds with an overactive appetite.  

    Best of luck.

    Great food - great pics.  

    Just make sure there are no shirtless pictures of @Killit_and_Grillit around.  That would make anyone lose their appetite.   

    Seriously though... Keep pressing to figure out what’s going on w that sweet boy.   If one Dr doesn’t give you the answer then keep pressing until you find the right one.  You have a great lady and a great family. Just keep at it and even look beyond your local community to get answers to help him.  

    I‘ll add y’all to the prayer list.

    Looks like she hit the jackpot with you too, brother. 

    Best wishes thru this. 

    And though I’m not a doctor, I’d suggest testing sensenof smell as well. It can have a huge impact on how we feel about what we taste. 

    Let us know if there’s  anything we can do.

    You are a very fortunate man to have such a beautiful family.
    Once he starts eating again, and begins tasting the food you cook, it is doubtful he will ever stop.
    Hang in there my friend, and yes, you absolutely married a winner, a wonderful wife and a loving, caring mother.
    Our best to you and your family.
