Best Week ever!

I took the Paramedic written test this past Saturday and found out this week that I passed! I took the practical test back in May at Memphis and passed. I was there the same weekend as Memphis in May, but due to testing I was not able to get over there and walk around. I am now done and am simply awaiting the arrival of my license from the state to begin practicing medicine. I am so excited!

My wife bought me an awesome gift upon hearing that I passed the written test, The Barbecue Bible. I can't wait to explore this book and try some of the recipes. I have a cook planned for Friday, chicken thighs and ribs. I'll post pics on this cook later.

I hope the BBQ Bible & your new license don't go hand and hand with each other!

Congratulations on passing the test BYB. Competiton cookers seems to always be in need of a good paramedic on occassion at comps. Try also
Barbecue USA by Raichlen, another one of my favorites.

WTG BYB. Very nice!!
I used to be a Paramedic, and absolutely loved it. Miss it a lot now, though.

I'm also sure you'll love it when you get your hands into it . . . . . . that's the BBQ as opposed to the patients
