My new Big Green Egg Mini Max

I picked up my newest BGE today and I couldn’t be happier. It is a great compliment to my large BGE. Today we cooked Pizza, cauliflower and an awesome dessert of pizza dough with sugar and salted caramel.

Cooking on the BGE reminds me of my childhood when my parents would go camping and cook over an open fire, this gives food the same flavor. It just can’t be beat!

I’m Back!

I have taken the Summer and Fall off. So much to do in beautiful Northen Michigan. We spent the last few months enjoying everything this beautiful land has to offer. But again I find things that our State Government does that just  doesn’t make sense.

My Wife and son wanted to go fishing this summer. Something that we used to enjoy but for the last few years have been to busy to enjoy. Imagine my suprise when I learned that it would cost us $25.00 each to get a fishing liscence. There is no way we would catch enough fish to pay for $75.00 in fees.

Yet again the state prices things so that the average person can’t or won’t pay the price. I didn’t want to fish for salmon, trout or anything like that, but I am forced to buy those stamps also. I wanted to fish for pan fish and just spend some time at the river with my son and wife. So instead of spending such high fees, we did something else and the state made no money from us.

How much money is the state losing because they have raised the fees? We will never know, but I will bet it will be enough that they have to raise fees again to cover the loss.
