I keep asking myself how all this came to be. I’m a grill blogger. I grill stuff. I take pictures of the grilled stuff. I write about the grilled stuff. It’s not rocket surgery, but somehow really cool stuff keeps happening to me. Last year, Arby’s flew me to NYC to consult on their menu so my wife and I got a weekend in the Big Apple because they recognized me as a, “Meat Enthusiast.” Whatever the heck that means. I’ve gotten to travel to places like Atlanta, Jacksonville, Las Vegas and Wooster, Ohio because of this silly blog. Don’t scoff at Wooster! That’s the home of the Certified Angus Beef Council and it just might be the best place to discuss, carve, grill and eat beef outside of Kobe, Japan.


One of the cooler things I’ve experienced because of this blog is the interviews. They are mainly in the grilling genre but I’ve been able to talk to some pretty cool cats because of this silly blog. Myron Mixon was my first, whom I interviewed while my wife was in labor. From Myron, I got to interview Wolfgang Puck. Yeah, that Wolfgang Puck. Recently I got to interview Graham Elliot of Master Chef fame and this latest interview was Dr. Turk from Scrubs. You know, Chocolate Bear. Married to Carla. Best friends with JD. Had to deal with endless rants from Dr. Cox. OK, I really interviewed Donald Faison, who played Dr. Turk, but still, how cool is that? So why the heck am I interviewing Dr… I mean Donald Faison? Because the man knows his BBQ. And the National Pork Board hired him to do some BBQ Crashing. Check out this 2 minute clip of some of what Donald is doing and get a glimpse of his comedic genius:

And finally we have the interview itself. I got a couple nice grilling tips from Donald, but sadly, he’s never had pork steaks. We need to rectify that. Here’s the interview:

If you have any questions, or would like to propose questions for my next interview, whomever that may be with, then follow us on Facebook and be ready when I toss out the next interviewee and ask for question ideas.

Scott Thomas, the Original Grillin’ Fool, was sent off to college with a suitcase and a grill where he overcooked, undercooked and burned every piece of meat he could find. After thousands of failures, and quite a few successes, nearly two decades later he started a website to show step by step, picture by picture, foolproof instructions on how to make great things out of doors so that others don’t have to repeat the mistakes he’s made on the grill.

Pretty cool opportunity, right? Fun interview, as much as I like hearing from the experts, it is refreshing to hear an interview about grilling with a celebrity because it brings out the regular joe in them.
