Bedtime Story

So, my 5 1/2 year old son brings me a Dr. Suess book for our nightly story. I tell him I don't want to read Dr. Seuss so I tell him "let's read a book about BBQ". So I get out Smoke and Spice and read the first couple of pages. I know he's not absorbing any of it other than BBQ, pork, smoker, pit but I figure if he's interested enough to sit for 5-10 minutes and listen to me read about BBQ then maybe he'll be interested enough to learn as he grows up and he'll have a hell of a pit to cook on.

Is this demented????

Not really... But make sure he really wants to be a BBQer like you.. He might want to be a scientist or something else....That is a cool bedtime story though..can you make a video and read it to us sometime?

Yes you are demented! Both of my boys love to cook out. I miss my youngest (Lyle) who is gone now. He could cook some mean chicken on his own pit he made. That kid had it down. Keep reading Bubba!

Hey Bubba,
Why don't you try and mix Smoke and Spice with Dr. Seuss, and make it a really good read!
Hmmm maybe you have something going here

I like blue barbecue and ham.
I like to eat them in a house.
I like to eat them with a mouse.

If he can sit and listen to you read out loud, then his power of attention and concentration is very high, and will turn out very successful.
