After laboring tirelessly over a hot wood pit, owner Mike Robertson vowed there had to be a better way. So along with his father, Bert (pictured above); they started designing and building what was to become the best bbq pits on the planet!

BBQ is food for the Soul.

I don't know what it is; but there's something very primal about bbq...something very relaxing about the 'aroma and taste' of smoked meats. Maybe the smell of smoke brings back memories of the family picnic, a warm summer day, a favorite meal or place. Something that tells your brain: relax and be happy! It's good for the soul.

Food for the soul. Bet you are feeling better already!

Food for the soul. Bet you are feeling better already!

Whether I'm consulting, training new customers, or just talking with friends; when you start talking about bbq, everyone has a favorite story to tell and a family recipe to share. There's always a smile on the storyteller's face. BBQ invokes PASSION....in just about everyone.

The smell of meats slow smoking with hickory, leaves a footprint on the brain.

Seriously, who can't look at this picture of ribs and not say "Ahhhh?" [Well, maybe not if you are a vegetarian. But for you; I can smoke some awesome corn on the cob, smoked veggies; even tofu!] When I look at pictures like this; for some reason, I feel relaxed; like "no worries, mahn." Very strange, I know. 

[When I sell a smoker, I'm surprised at how many of them come back to me and say they've never had so much fun purchasing a piece of equipment before. So it's good all around; whether you are producing OR consuming!]

How many foods can you think of that leave that type of impression? And even though a picture can paint a 1,000 words; tasting that scrumptious flavor will create an even deeper impression. One that makes you want more.

REDUCE YOUR FEDERAL TAX LIABILITY

The best way to reduce your federal tax liability is to purchase equipment for your business.

TAX CODE SECTION 179 - EXPENSE ELECTION 2013

Taxpayers can elect to expense the cost of qualifying property. The aggregate cost that can be expensed (deducted) by regular taxpayers under Code Sec. 179 for any tax year cannot exceed:

....$500,000 for tax years beginning in 2013

....$25,000 for tax years beginning after 2013

Notice the drastic drop in the amount that can be expensed ....2013 vs. 2014!

If your business will show a profit by the end of the year, you can reduce the amount of tax you will pay if you purchase equipment for your business. [You can only write off the purchase if you have a profit.In order for the purchase to qualify, you must be invoiced and paid in full by December 31st. It's okay if the equipment is delivered after the New Year. 

AS WITH ANY IMPORTANT BUSINESS DECISION, PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR FINANCIAL ADVISER TO DISCUSS WHAT IS BEST FOR YOUR BUSINESS.
