So what does this mean for Cravings of a Lunatic?

Nothing. Cravings will still be up and running as per usual. I love to bake and cook so this one isn’t going anywhere.

What is Kiss My Smoke?

Well, it’s a grilling blog. All grill/bbq recipes all year round. I’m so excited to share it with you.

You can read about how I got my start grilling in my about page.  I’ve been grilling a long time, over 20 years and I love getting out there on the grill. So it seemed high time to share my love of grilling with my readers.

My goal is to inspire anyone, men and women alike to get out there and get their grills fired up. Do not fear the grill. Once you start you’ll become addicted to it.

I will be sharing all my tried and true recipes for the grill. I will show you how to smoke, rub, mop, and get perfect char. I will be sharing grilling tips that will make your grilling adventures easier and more tasty. In September I will be sharing videos about once per week. The new site will have three posts per week during regular grilling season, more during high season. I will be posting on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. Tuesdays will be How To Tuesdays inspired by the incomparable Mario Batali’s series. Love that dude.

There’s also a section of grilling tips coming soon. I cannot wait to share lots of tricks and tips for you. I include one tip in every post that helps you make the recipe a success. I want you to grill confidently and that’s easier to do if you’re armed with loads of knowledge.

I look forward to sharing my new journey with you. You can head over to Kiss My Smoke to check it out for yourselves. While you’re there be sure to subscribe to my emails.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support. I am so thrilled to have such amazing people cheering me on while I follow my dreams. And my cravings.

    Dear Kim,

    When you announce on Facebook that you have a big surprise to reveal on SUNDAY, and then you don’t reveal it until WEDNESDAY, it makes me very sad. Mostly because it means that I am unable to leave my house for a few days waiting for the BIG REVEAL. And then, when I have to find your new, super awesome grilling site all by myself, it makes me sadder. First, it requires me to do the work myself. I’m not particularly fond of putting effort into anything. Second, when I find your new, super awesome grilling site, I’m all: is that the big secret? Is that what she was supposed to tell me about on Sunday? Or is there something else? Like a unicorn.

    In the future, please just tell me all of your secrets ahead of time. It will save us both a lot of heartache.


    P.S. If there is a unicorn, will you be doing a separate post?

    • Kim Beaulieu says

      Dear Rachael:

      I’d apologize but I am too busy shoving bbq ribs in my pie hole. And not it’s all over my keyboard so I’m going to have to send you an invoice for that. In addition to the unicorn. Maybe the unicorn can also deliver you some ribs, unless it eats them all on the way to your place. In which case I’ll release a second unicorn to make up for the badly behaved first unicorn.

      I was actually going to share it on Sunday then I realized I could torture you a little bit so I waited. And laughed, and laughed, and laughed.

      ps so if I ever make it out your way you have a grill right….

    • Kim Beaulieu says

      Thanks John. Oh I have big plans for a stone one out in my yard next year. I want to grill pizza in a big bad way.

    • Kim Beaulieu says

      Thanks my friend. I’m so happy I did it.

      I’ll be giving you a ring sometime this weekend. Looking forward to catching up.

    KIM!!! This is so wonderful! Congratulations! Your pictures look gorgeous and I’m confident that your new site will give folks like me who don’t grill often the confidence to get out their and grill something! Brava, my friend!

    Congratulations Kim on your new blog… you are amazing!! I can hardly keep up with one blog… you’re juggling two blogs without a sweat!! I wish you much success. :)

    • Kim Beaulieu says

      Awe, thanks Ramona. I feel like such a slacker right now. Been a rough few weeks here. Another week and the hooligan is back in school and routine returns to the B household. Yah.

    omg, EVERYBODY: STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING. Kim is going to teach me personally how to not be totally afraid of my grill. She really has her work cut out for her, so let’s keep it down so i can take all the notes.
    Kim, this whole new website thing is for me, right? :) j/k
    i love the idea of having a year-round grilling site! especially from the perspective of getting over the fear of grilling. there’s lots of grill sites out there that sort of “preach to the choir” in terms of really not ever breaking it down enough and just assuming you know things that you (well, i) do not, and it scares me off every time. can’t wait to see all that you do with this!

    • Kim Beaulieu says

      Ha, Shannon you need to haul your tush down here and we’ll grill together. I’d totally teach you not to be fearful of the grill. Once you start grilling you won’t want to stop.

      Hopefully I break it down enough for you. I’m starting a new series soon that will run you through grilling 101. That should really help.
