    It finally arrived! I’d been looking forward to the new Char-Broil Digital Electric Smoker since seeing one last May. I’d used electric smokers before, but they had issues with heating elements that were too small, or they weren’t able to hold enough wood chips to really add any smoke flavor. Some electric smokers use proprietary wood pucks that can be hard to find. The Char-Broil smoker, though, has a temperature range of 100-275F, and it has a new smoke box that’s really big, holding enough pellets or wood chips to smoke for several hours, at least supposedly. I had…

    Who says they don't use barbecue sauce in Texas? SuckleBusters call themselves "The Best in Texas" and they've got the accolades to back up that claim - Scovies, NBBQA awards, American Royal wins and more. The brand, created by Dan and Cheryl Arnold, has really blown up in recent years and is now available at over 350 retail locations across the country. They've now got a massive product line that includes rubs, sauces, salsas, chili kits and even jellies and preserves. If variety is the spice of life, SuckleBusters is truly bustin' with flavor.Take their barbecue sauces, for example -…

    A couple weeks ago, a group of my friends got together for our annual fantasy football draft. I got first pick, so Mr. Luck best have a great season! We all bring in a bunch of snacks, pizzas, etc., and I brought along some pretzels and horseradish cheddar cheese dip. It’s a simple cheese dip I get at a small, local market. And it’s simply good. While taking a break, Aaron, (A-A-Ron, pronounced long A- long A- Ron, in 3 syllables) thought the cheese would be great on a burger.

Sorry, i didn’t have a camera back then, so no photos are available of the actual events… Fortunately. Imagine that it’s 1978. Somehow, as a young teenage boy, I find myself alone at home.

Instead of clouds, we had clear skies, and everything was gorgeous! Monday, however, changed that a bit. It was cloudy again, but it did burn off by noonish. Tuesday was sunny, but hot for the beach area, and a bit humid. That turned cloudy again, and Thursday actually brought rain (drizzle), which continued into Friday for a cloudy day the whole day… Not the typical San Diego weather. We…

    From late April through mid-June, I did a bit of travel here and there. It was mostly not work related, but the last trip was to a conference in San Diego. I’ve been to the same hotel 2 other times, and I’ve learned that June is typically filled with grey mornings that turn into sunny, fantastic days. This year was different, though; out of 7 days, only half the time was sunny. It even kind of rained a couple days! We made the best of it, though. My wife went with me, and we got in early enough to enjoy a beautiful Saturday on Coronado Island (not really an island) and La Jolla,…

    This week’s BBQ Sauce comes to us from the ATL Georgia made by the fine folks at Firebud Brands. While cooking a whole hog at an SEC tailgate party Michael McCord was tasked with coming up with a sauce to compliment the succulent pig that had been cooking all night. What he came up with was a cider vinegar mustard sauce that would later be known as Slap Sauce.Slap Sauce is the signature sauce of Firebud Brands, and it is easy to see why. The sweet tangy sauce is a little sweeter than what most people think of when they think of a mustard sauces. Therefore, this sauce is much more inviting…

  • MOTORIZED GRILL BRUSH

    30 Aug 2015 | 6:53 am
    A great tip for successful grilling is a clean cooking grate. A clean grate will help produce great grill marks, help food from not sticking and get rid of any unwanted flavors. A good sturdy wire brush is an essential tool to achieve this goal. Along comes the Broadstone Motorized Grill Brush. This is an battery powered rotating wire brush with the added bonus of steam. In theory this sounds fantastic. Steam cleaning your grill with out any physical effort may be the ticket to barbeque perfection.

Sometimes it is better not to read the ingredient label because it can unmask a want to be bacon poser immediately. Against my better judgment I did read the label. Surprise, surprise, bacon is listed as an ingredient. Sugar, shallots, apple, maple syrup and onions are a few of the other ingredients. At the end of the list is an ingredient that is on my least favorite list; liquid smoke.

Of course pasta is also good when you’re not in a hurry, like the recipe for luscious pasta or the red wine and meatballs (spaghetti and meatballs recipe)!

    Most BBQ enthusiasts don't immediately think of cheese when smoking meats. But when it comes to grilling, there's nothing better than slapping on a slice of cheese on a burger patty and watching it melt and ooze away. Recently, I had the chance to try out some swiss and gruyere cheese from Emmi USA.Both cheeses are similar in that both have a very distinct "nutty" (hold the chuckle) flavor, especially with the swiss cheese. Gruyere also has that nutty flavor, but more on the sweet and salty side. Both cheeses are the perfect compliment for beef burgers because the cheese cuts the fatty beef…

    By Dru ChaiI love curling up next the grill/smoker to read a good BBQ cookbook. Okay, maybe not literally curl up to the smoker. A lawn chair will do just fine. Here are a few books that I recently checked out for this year's BBQ season.Southern Living Ultimate Book of BBQExcellent, all-around BBQ book that includes 200+ recipes with plenty of photos. The first half of the book provides step-by-step directions on prepping meat like baby back ribs, beef short ribs, pork butt, brisket, and smoked chicken. The second half is all about recipes with a southern twist.[Dirty Smoke BBQ rating:…
  • Product Review: JayD's Louisiana Barbecue Sauce

    Dru Chai
    3 May 2015 | 4:46 pm
    By Dru ChaiIn the ultra competitive world of BBQ sauces, there's no doubt that marketing and branding play a huge role. Safe to say, a celebrity-chef backed BBQ sauce would more than likely entice a fan to pick up the sauce off the shelf without even tasting it. Other no-name brand sauces need to go the extra mile, like provide taste tests or demos in the market.I met food blogger Jay Ducote during last year's World Food Championships in Las Vegas, and we immediately struck up a conversation about New Orleans (although he was quick to point out that he's from Baton Rouge) and BBQ.

The weather is starting to get warmer, so dust off those grills and smokers!I always find myself looking at BBQ sauces when I'm grocery shopping, just to see what's new. Recently I got around to trying out Rattler BBQ sauce, from celebrity chef and Food Network's Chopped judge Chris Santos.Whenever I'm reviewing BBQ sauces, I like to read the description on the label to see if it matches up with what I'm actually tasting.

    30 Aug 2015 | 1:16 pm
    It is that time of the year that everyone who loves tomatoes looks forward to with anticipation.  That time of the year when your local farmers market is bursting with plump and juicy tomatoes of various varieties.  Romas, Early Girls, Beefsteak, take your pick.  For four to five months out of the year, we get to leave behind tomatoes of the hot house variety and feast on sweet a juicy goodness.  There are three things that I look forward to during tomato season:  marinaded and grilled tomatoes with mozzarella cheese, fresh salsa, and BLT's, hold the L.  Lets…

    Last weekend, the Three Dogs BBQ road show hitched up the trailer and headed out east to take part in the Hudson Valley Ribfest.  It is very hard to believe that past weekend was our fifth time to compete in the HVRF.  This was our first contest and therefore competing here is somewhat special to us.  This past weekend was no different. On day one, we participated in the New England Barbecue Society grilling competition, the categories being the usual pizza and apple dessert and the other two being wrapped in bacon and sliders. Seventh place pulled pork pizza.  Think…

    Summer is chugging along and we have started to actually get some weather that is enjoyable.  We have moved past our spring like June and July with 11 inches of rain in six weeks and temperatures in the 70's during the day and the 40's at night.  Mowing the lawn was twice weekly act of desperation rather than a weekly chore.  But, as the weather has changed a bit and the lawn mowing duties are now in a more manageable schedule, the farm markets are starting to sell their summer bounty.  Yesterday at my local market, one of my favorites was siting on the shelf: purple…
  • Bacon Pesto Stuffed Turkey Breast

    1 Aug 2015 | 5:07 am
    Earlier this year at the World Bacon Championships in Rochester, NY, one of the turn in categories was turkey.  It could be any kind of turkey, it just had to contain bacon in some form.  So, after some thinking and experimentation over the spring, we settled on a turkey breast stuffed with basil pesto and bacon.  Bacon and pesto match well.  At least I think so.  But the judges didn't think so as our entry finished in the middle of the pack. First, we took a turkey breast and butterflied the meat so that it could be stuffed with the bacon and pesto filling. Once…

    Last weekend is one of the weekends of the year that I look forward to with unbridled anticipation.  Yes, it was the weekend that our favorite farm market, Ambrose Farm Market, was open for business.    They offer various types of greens, peppers, cucumbers, melons, and squash.  But, what they are known for is their butter and sugar corn.  This corn is the best corn in Butler County, period.  Never starchy, always sweet.  It is worth the hour round trip drive.  Last weekend, my bounty also included some beautiful Early Girl tomatoes and jalapeño…

  • Time Tested Eastern Carolina BBQ Sauce Recipes

    Kevin Sandridge
    23 Aug 2015 | 11:36 am
    Eastern Carolina BBQ sauce recipes may vary in nuanced or minor ways, but true to form, they must share the following flavor profile: watery thin, tangy, with a little spicy vinegar kick. No ketchup in this sauce, folks. In fact, if you see any hint of “red,” it’s likely from cayenne or Tabasco. In the early days of whole pig roasting along the Eastern Carolina coastline and even down into the northeast portion of South Carolina, Eastern Carolina BBQ Sauce was meant to cut through the rich and fatty pork, impart some flavor and a little zing, and cleanse the palate.

    Taking pictures of food is a strange thing.  I end up getting emotionally attached to my bbq pictures and I know that is absolutely absurd. I don’t care. So I haven’t been writing much but I sure have been grilling and smoking a lot recently.  I ended up with some pictures of pork butts and beef ribs on my iPhone that I couldn’t bear to delete so I figured I would just post them here. Love the smoke. Love the bone pulling back. Love the indentations from the grill grate when I turned this butt over. There wasn’t anything very special about this smoked pork butt other than the fact…

Argentina is one of the beef capitals of the world.  I figured that if they like this with their steaks then there must be something good about it! I started with a ribeye steak that had been seasoned with salt and pepper. I grilled it up properly over high heat on my Weber. To get the grill marks I grilled the steak for three minutes then rotated the steak by 45 degrees and grilled for another three…
