I even commissioned a website that brought everything together in one place at http://mancavemunchies.com This way you could find my YouTube channel and blog along with my social links and favorite episodes all in one convenient location. Currently, the show features 70 episodes and more than a dozen blogs. Viewership now stands at just over 200,000 with more than 1,000 subscribers. While the show won't win an Emmy, I've been more than happy with the response I've gotten over the years from my viewers. One of the questions I get asked a lot is when will I come out with a Man Cave Munchies cookbook? I'm working on that currently and am aiming to have it available for shipping before Christmas. With that in mind, I decided to up the ante by producing another 30 webisodes on YouTube to bring the number of recipes up to an even 100. The cookbook will be interactive in that readers will be able to view the recipes and click on the links that take them to the videos. What could be simpler, right?

To help keep the man cave fires burning, I'm also going to start a Patreon page that will allow any viewer to contribute to the cause. Depending on the contribution, I plan on offering premiums that include electronic or print versions of the Man Cave Munchies cookbook, as well as branded t-shirts, hats and coffee mugs. I'm also offering all you chefs out there the opportunity to have a guest shot that will allow you to show me and my audience some of your man cave cooking skills. All in all, this season should prove to be one of the most productive and interesting that I've ever produced. I look forward to cooking up a storm as well as keeping the man cave credo alive ------- Man, Fire, GOOD! Munch on!
