“My father was a big man with an appetite to match,” said Ethan Wayne. “He would have eaten steak and potatoes at every meal, and the phrase ‘charred medium’ still rings in my ears. As much as he enjoyed a well-prepared piece of meat, what John Wayne loved best about a meal was how it brought us all together. Gathered around the grill, trading stories and laughs, a dinner at the end of a long day of work meant good times and better company.”
