Follow-up: What is your favorite food to barbecue?SCOTT ANDERSON | Firefighter | Salinas
A: Woodworking. Making cabinets in particular is my getaway. Gardening and doing yard work with my wife really lights my fire because sometimes I am away from her for 10-plus days at a time.
Two for One: Sausage and marinated skirt steak slow cooked over oak, rare.DARREN WENGER | Fire Captain | Pacific Grove
A: Doing outdoor activities with my 9- and 12-year-old girls and my wife. I like boating and watersports, biking, and riding quads.
Here’s the Rub: Rib-eye steak rubbed with olive oil, chili powder and other seasonings, charred on the outside, bloody on the inside.RICK CATHEY | Firefighter | Salinas
A: A day where I didn’t have to study for paramedic school. I usually study 10 hours a day for the past 6 months, and won’t be a certified until March of ’09.
Turning Point: T-bone steak, cooked on high heat for eight minutes [turn, flip, turn every two minutes], so it’s slightly pink on the inside.
