My year-long sabbatical from the world of barbecue is officially
over and I'm back in the saddle.
Although I'm sure this blog hasn't had many visits in the time it's
been inactive, I'm very gratified that people are still listening
to and watching my podcast archive to the tune of about 600 views a
month. In the coming year I hope to do a bit more podcasting, but
in the meantime, I've got several pieces of news:
* I've partnered with international hot sauce champion Denzel
Sandberg to put together a new line of sauces under the brand
"Ronnie & Denzel's All-Natural Barbecue Sauce." Watch for the
official launch soon.
* I've begun work on my next book, Barbecue Secrets DELUXE!, which
will be, as the title implies, a deluxe version of my first
cookbook that will incorporate the best of Planking Secrets, a
bunch of new recipes, new colour food photos, and some extra
* Just a few days ago I started twittering under the name
rockinronnie. If you don't know about twitter, it's an interesting
way you can keep in touch with friends or follow news about a topic
or person you're interested in. Some have called it micro-blogging.
I'm going to use it to update folks on the progress of the sauces
and new book, share barbecue tips and generally twitter about
outdoor cooking. Check it out at http://twitter.com/
So, get on board. The Rockin' Ronnie train is about to leave the
station on a new round of barbecue adventures.
Yours forever in smoke,
