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 surprises.
* 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,
