Bubba's Bar 'n' Grill opens

Neil has launched a new food and cooking section on his website called Bubba's Bar 'n' Grill.

Being a man who's cooking-challenged (or just plain lazy), I have to say I appreciate this section of Neil's website. In perusing the introduction and the recipes, I've already gleaned a few ideas that may eventually help me impress my family. I'll report back!
