The second occurrence was about a month ago. I posted pictures on Steven Raichlen’s Barbecue Bible Message board from when I made the OUR PERFECT BURGERS recipe from WICKED GOOD BURGERS. As the recipe called for I ground my own ground beef, baked the rolls and made two condiments. I got an email from a grilling friend of mine telling me Stephen Raichlen had posted a link to my burger post on his Facebook Wall. This one I knew nothing about because I am not a social media person. This blog is about as social as I get. This referral surprised me a little bit because the recipe was not one of Steven’s own recipes. Now granted the link pointed back to my post on HIS message board, but it wasn’t one of his recipes. I got my start in “Serious Grilling” 10 years ago thanks to him and I have all of his cookbooks. I admire his work immensely and I like his down to earth approach on his TV shows. He is not about flash and “BAM” and who he knows. Instead he gets right to the recipes and you will get 3-4 recipes per show because he focusses on the food and not him as the cook. So it was fun for me when someone I really admire, liked something I did well enough to refer to it.
There you have it. Just a few minutes of fun where someone who’s work you admire, recognized something you did. No more no less. I am not quitting the day job, or not getting a swelled head. It was a few minutes of inner satisfaction and life returns to normal.
