This is the good thing about grilling those critters long periods over
low heat (especially on Labor Day Weekend when you're not alone) -
that wonderful aroma drives ya crazy!

Well, at least it wasn't the family feline!

I didn't see the cookbook but my old line of work required long
periods of time in the wilderness.  At lunch while everyone else was
manifold baking beanie-weinies and spam I was kinda like Rael on his
line and was going for the fish flavor - toasted Kipper Snacks - not
quiet squid but close enough in a tight!  And as usual in any sort of
cooking - my favorite pepper sauces were always added.

Thanks for the memories!
