    Dinosaur BBQ Book Giveaway 

    This week I was the fortunate recipient of a gift card for Barnes & Noble, a token of appreciation for a presentation I helped to give on 'Innovation in the Classroom'.  I attempted to preach the gospel of blogs, twitter, and networking to a very skeptical crowd of faculty members.

    I am not sure that I won over any converts that day, but I hope that it was just the first skirmish in a longer campaign.

    At any rate, I picked up a few books for the family, and with the remainder I wanted to share some of the spoils with a blog reader. Since I received the gift card mostly for talking about the blog,  I figured

    it was the least I could do.

    Rather than give away a boring technology or business book, I went for something I can unequivocally give my highest personal endorsement.

    The book I will give away to a commenter to this post (selected at random) is the Dinosaur Bar b que, An American Roadhouse cookbook, hardcover edition.

    I received this book originally about three years ago as a gift, and I have probably made over half of the recipes in it, and the fundamental smoking techniques and advice are the basis for all the smoking that I do today.

    It is a fantastic book and an even better restaurant, so if you ever get to Rochester or Syracuse be sure to check it out.

    So if you are interested in winning a copy of the best barbecue book around, leave a comment on the post, I will select a winner at random on Monday morning, July 13.

    Thanks very much for reading and for helping to give me content for my little 'innovation' presentation, and I hope you enjoy the Barbecue.

    Steve, I bet you laid the groundwork in the presentation to those faculty members and a budding tweeter is marinating as we speak...
