or rather a grilling lesson from Chef Florence (be still my heart) in the July issue of Sunset Magazine. He was one of three folks brought together to master the art of grilling and to overcome their past...well...charbroiled disasters.
Lesson 2: Ribs I think that perhaps Mr. Osborne has just been to busy fighting fires here in Santa Barbara to master the rib thing. Let's hope that he has plenty of time to work the coals over a grill this summer instead of working the embers on our hillsides.
The student: Santa Barbara firefighter Matt Osborne.
The disaster: Osborne incinerated some ribs one Super Bowl at the firehouse while leaving them unattended to watch the game with his coworkers. The next morning, he tossed the smoker’s mangled remains into the station’s dumpster and nearly set it on fire.
The hope: Redemption. "The entire event still haunts me today," he wrote. "It has been six years and the guys still bring it up."
