My thanks to everyone who attended the big Planking Secrets book
launch event on May 16 at Vancouver's Hamilton Street Grill. What a
great party, enhanced greatly by HSG chef Neil Wyle's hospitality,
along with complementary food from Whitecap Books and delicious
beverages from R&B Brewing and Appleton Estate rum.
The big thrill of the evening for me was a surprise visit from my planking mentor, famed barbecue chef Ted Reader, author of Sticks and Stones, a great book about planking and other things.
Thanks also to Johnstone's BBQs & Parts for providing the Weber Genesis grill that all the food was cooked on, and Johnstone's Bryan O'Connor for taking the fab photos of the event (see them here. Thanks, Bryan!)
