Hi! Thanks for listening to Cathy and I every morning for the last 10 years. I grew up on ‘The Range’ and I’ve made the Twin Ports my home for over the last decade. It’s a great place for my wife and I to raise our kids. I love to hunt, fish, and hang out in our great outdoors. I also love my job! It’s great to be able to connect with everybody in the Northland every morning and have a few laughs together. I’ve lived in many different parts of the Midwest, but nothing is as great as right here!

I remember when I was a kid we used to have all sorts of fun dehydrated fruit snacks that my mom made with this dehydrator.  My mom dug it out from storage and was ready to throw it away when I intercepted it.  I wanted to use it and make delicious healthy snacks for my family.   But something went wrong!

Charcoal Chimney Is The Way To Go When Grilling

For years I've piled charcoal briquettes into my weber grill and then doused it with lighter fluid, lit it, sear my eyebrows off, and then wait for the coals to get hot.  That's the method that was passed down from generation to generation to me.   My eyes were opened recently to the wonderful advantages of using a charcoal chimney.  It's now the only way to go when grilling with charcoal.
