In Memoriam>Fire Me Boy! has passed away
luv 08:11 AM 03-02-2020
His wife posted the news on his Facebook a little earlier this morning. I know that he will be missed by many on here, especially the foodies.

FMB was one of the first people to really welcome me on here when I first joined and started posting regularly. I never met him in person, but he was one great guy and a fellow grammar Nazi. :-)

I'm sure his wife would appreciate any thoughts or prayers.

RIP, Fire Me Boy!

He had so much medical shit going on. Lord knows what kinds and how many medications he was dealing with. His body might have just given out.

Still miss his posts. Can't imagine he wasn't as good of a dude IRL as he was on here.

I would have never spent a hundred dollars on a kitchen knife before reading his posts, but did on a Global.

Also, I use his recommendation for falling asleep more nights than I don't by counting backwards from 100 by threes. He said he would usually be out by the time he got to the 60s. Not sure what thread it was in.

I also remember him passionately standing up for artists rights against pirating their music/video.

We had some good discussion on wine and he liked one of my recommendations.

Absolutely. I know more than one thing I learned from him that I'll use the rest of my life and teach my son as well.

It was his worship of cast iron that influenced us to try it for steaks when the weather wasn't conducive to grilling. The Mrs went out and bought a pan, followed his advice for seasoning and the technique for cooking them. I was flat out amazed at the results. They were so damn good I'm not sure why I even bother grilling them at all anymore. And from here on out, I'll probably think about him every time i see that pan. Dude knew his shit.

I don’t catch every thread, and am not familiar with the guy, but just reading thru this one restores balance to the universe. Guy sounds like a righteous dude. Good to see CP come together.

2 things he taught me that changed my cooking.

1. Cast iron is king. Steaks, burgers, pork chops, chicken. It’s all way better on the cast iron. Amazingly different. Even bought another cast iron to allow for making smashed burger patties with that crispy crust. That was all him.

2. I’ll never cook a steak or pork chops unless I have 24 hours for it to sit salted and peppered in the fridge. That’s creates an amazing seal and much juicier cuts when eaten. That was a game changer when he discussed that technique.

There was a time when you and I joked about road tripping so he could feed us. I wish we would have done it.

The guy honestly should've been receiving kickbacks from all the products he recommended over the years. I'm on my 2nd Thermapen from a link he posted and I usually gift one over the holidays each year as well.
