My dad and I were not always the closest when I was growing up. I always knew he loved me and worked hard to provide for our family. As I have grown up I knew I needed to love and take care of my family just as much. I remember nights in the summer of him starting up the grill for dinner, and when I was old enough getting to help him. I have always loved food off the grill. Now as a father myself I grill for my family several nights a week and have become pretty good at it myself. I have learned a lot and even been able to do low and slow projects for my dad. For his birthday he requested a smoked brisket. I was worried going into it as I have never smoked brisket before, but he said it was the best he has ever had.
