A different kind of fire man

Yesterday, I went to a barbecue at my friend Jeff Nolan‘s house in sunny northern California. It was a beautiful day made more pleasant by Jeff’s family and some new friends.

Even better: Jeff smoked some wonderful ribs for five hours. They’d been covered with a rub and sauce made by Jeff himself. In fact, Jeff made almost all the food we ate, from the wonderful heirloom tomato, basil and mozzarella salad to the excellent potato salad. The man even grew the lettuce for the green salad. It is no exaggeration to say that I have not had better barbecue in my life. Video of Jeff at work is here (warning: it is total Drool TV).
