Grill Reluctance

I’ve loved barbecue for as long as I could remember.

We used to have a Lillie’s Q restaurant just down the street from the office and I ordered from there on such a regular basis, that they could recognize my voice on the phone.

I’ve always wanted to learn how to smoke meats but have been very hesitant. I never knew what it entailed and how complicated it was going to be.

I mentioned previously, that one of my neighbors is a world class barbecue-er.

I first tasted his barbecue at our last block party. He made some barbecue and brought it to the party. The food was delicious.

For the last couple of times, I’ve asked him to show me what he does when he barbecues.

The set up and all that goes into the barbecue process. He will start early in the morning and get all of the meat properly seasoned. Then he will get a plan in place as to what temperature he will cook the meat, when he will wrap it, and when he’ll finally take it off the fire.

This whole process will take sometimes 8 to 10 hours, start to finish. Once I saw how much effort it took, I felt informed and comfortable investing in an expensive smoker.

Many people have a similar type of reluctance when investing in any cosmetic improvements with their smile.

They are not sure what it will look like, with making the cosmetic changes. It’s a big barrier for people.

That’s why we offer every cosmetic patient, a prototype of the cosmetic changes, in an affordable plastic prototype that we could insert right over your existing teeth.

This gives you an idea of what the smile enhancement could look like, before moving forward with the final cosmetic procedure.

For me, it’s hard to pull the trigger on a purchase and not knowing how it will look. I’m sure many people feel like I do.

If you are looking to enhance your smile and would like to schedule a cosmetic consultation, please visit us at or call 773-292-1911 today!

Emilio “BBQ Master in Training” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
