Lead by example

Note:  This post should be read with a healthy dose of sarcasm and good nature!

I try to set a good example and help others learn from my mistakes. I really do.  But sometimes people just have to learn the hard way.  Such is the case with my brother-in-law.  We’ll just call him Ed for the sake of this discussion.

You see, Ed’s a bright guy and I could learn tons from him.  I, on the other hand, only have a few areas of expertise where I can reciprocate.  But try as I might, I’ve been unable to impart any wisdom to Ed.

I’m talking about the area of BBQ.  As I’ve told a lot of folks (including Ed), I’ve owned a handful of different smokers.  But it was only when I learned patience and acquired a quality smoker that I began to produce really decent BBQ.  Now you’d think that a guy like Ed who has enjoyed the fruits of my efforts on the Big Green Egg would take my advice.  Especially since he insists on “only the best” when it comes to the other tools that he uses to ply his trade.

I’ve failed you Ed, but I guess sometimes you gotta learn the hard way.  Good luck with your new Charbroil h2O Smoker….at least you’re cooking! 🙂
