FIRE on the MOUNTAIN~~

I'm SURE most of you figgered out the reference.  Last week the MRS. PAPPY and myself zipped out to Colorado for a 'union' of old friends.  WEDDING PICTURES at Red Rocks...priceless!

First stop, BOULDER, CO -- home of the BUFFS.

OLD FRIENDS (as a gal in Golden, CO. told me as she checked my identification "Age Happens"! I told her she should print a bumper sticker!) of the GranPappy have lived in BOULDER since early 1990's.  The GranPappy parlayed the visit into a legitimate 'consulting gig'.  An appointment was made with the #1 Catering Facility in BOULDER - A Spice of Life Catering.  The folks at SPICE OF LIFE have a tremendous facility and are super kind!
5706 Arapahoe Aver - Boulder, CO.

WEIRD SCIENCE

Q'Believer's...would you take a High School science class where one of the weekly assignments was to research the Science of BBQ?
Yep, I thought so!  In my senior level elective class I have my students research the following MYTH affectionately called DEATH BY BBQ:

Confirm or Bust the myth claiming that grill lines on barbecued meats contain carcinogens.  Also answer the following:1) What minimum temperature should you cook pork, chicken and beef to be safe?  2) Why does smoking meat at a low temperature produce more tender meat than cooking/grilling at high temperature?  3) What dangerous bacteria can be found in chicken and what is its affect on the body?
Not your everyday boring elective class, huh?  In my preparation for the course I came across some interesting BBQ/Science related sites that I wanted to share.  Maybe you can step your game up this off-season with the info or just kill some time hiding from your wife in your man cave hunkered down next to your iPad!
