VINCENNES, Ind. - May 5, 2022 - PRLog -- Maybe this third time will be "a charm"? Over the past few years, life for Indiana Chef Mike Regan has felt perilous, like an action packed rollercoaster ride. After winning several local WHTI News Channel "Fork In The Road" Food Awards, his Rosedale area restaurants enjoyed a huge surge in interest for his signature dishes. The chef's 14 hour/day schedule ended months later when he woke up one morning with a heart attack.

Round 2. During years of recovery from attack, he also had to overcome back injuries from falling off of a trailer. Moving to a farm in Carlisle, Indiana Chef Mike cultivates vegetables for the local farmer's market. He also built an outdoor BBQ Shack to create a steady following for his catering. Career highlight must of been seeing Jim Carrey notching on tacos he served at a party. For charity and for fun, he entertains thousands of followers on his Youtube Dumpster Diving Indiana channel.

Round 3. Then it came un-welcomed and unannounced, a powerful thunderstorm that ravished much of Midwest in December of 2021. Chef Indiana Mike credits low and slow BBQ smoking for potentially saving him from serious injury. The day of the storm, he decided to slow smoke whole chickens, rather than staying at the grill to cook barbecue style. Without any warning or weather advisory, the winds came and leveled the shack and took his BBQ equipment airborne to be damaged.

So the Indiana man has spent most of 2022 slowly rebuilding a steadier BBQ Shack, with some encouragement from Chef Mick and BBQ RESCUES! However, he has been unable to replace the large pellet smokers that his catering business depended on. For America's Best Home Recipes (Memorial Day Edition), he will be preparing one of his signature dishes.

In the meantime, he has inspired Chef Mick to donate an original, never before seen online photo gallery to Yoder Smokers' Char Champion online fundraiser to benefit the James Beard Foundation. If they win, BBQ RESCUES will donate the Custom Cimarron Smoker Trailer to Indiana Chef Mike. Also, invite him to the "VIP Experience for Two" at the 2022 American Royal World Series of Barbecue. The cash prize would also be nice.

More Semi-Finalists will be announced in the upcoming days for America's Best Home Recipes. Episodes will be available on Vimeo, Youtube and website.
