    I’m a bit late to the game, but better late than never! Wayfair.com is featuring stories, so I thought I’d throw my favorite early grilling stories. 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. My good friend, we’ll call him B, comes over, and we walk up to the local Supervalu store and figure out what hunk of beef we’re each going to grill. Had we ever done this before? NO! Were we afraid we’d screw it…

    San Diego 2015 – Part 1 was just the weekend after we got to San Diego. Part B is about the week… The first weekend of June was really great. The weather was perfect, even at dawn. 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…

    16 Jul 2015 | 5:25 pm
    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,…

    What do you do when it’s dinner, and you didn’t think about what you’re going to have? You look in the fridge and improvise, and, depending on how hungry you are, make something all quick-like! I had the following that caught my eye: Cheddar cheese Mole sauce Pulled pork and, in the pantry, some spicy blue corn chips All that sounds like pulled pork nachos to me! The pulled pork is just good any time.  The chips are spicy and crunchy. The cheddar cheese is just necessary, but the mole sauce brought everything together, crossing the bbq/Mexican boundaries and making it all…

    In May, I went on a trip focused mainly on photography (get it? focused on photography???) with my uncle. After flying to Dallas, we flew to Albuquerque, then drove to Santa Fe and Taos, then drove across northern New Mexico to southern Utah and northern Arizona, taking a quick drive up into southern Colorado. In Utah, we went to the Vermillion Cliffs and Peak-a-boo Canyon, then headed back via Phoenix. It was a great trip, and I borrowed the best camera I’ve ever used, a Nikon D810, and used a rented Nikon 14-28mm f/2.8 to get some great photos (to me, at least). Enough of photos,…

    This was a fairly quick camp breakfast. I picked up some spicy chorizo from a woman who sells it in a small market. She said her favorite way to prep it was with potatoes. So I gave it a try while camping. Used the tractor rim. Also had a pot of pinto beans simmering for a later meal. Browned my chorizo first, then added a few tatoes... made divots in the meat/taters and broke a

They have two flavors, a Macho Mayo Zesty Roasted Green Chile and  Macho Mayo Spicy Roasted Jalapeno. The sauce can be used straight out of the jar for dippin' or in your favorite recipes that call for regular ole mayonnaise. It's a

    25 Jul 2015 | 12:00 am
    Ms. Goofy loves cheese. She also is a Chilehead in training. When I first met her, she was a novice in all things chile. Jalapeno peppers, one of the mildest peppers was a challenge for her. Over the years, she has been introduced to many varieties of peppers. She still shies away from the exotic peppers so I was a little surprised when she came home with some 'Three Alarm Pepper Cheese'.This Colby Jack cheese has a trio of peppers: Habanero, chipotle, and jalapeno. This is some great cheese. I love the mix of peppers with creamy Colby Jack cheese. It definitely will warm your taste buds. I…

I could not resist sharing a couple of images of the biggest baddest beef ribs ever. These Fred Flinstone cuts were found at Lakewood Meats in Lodi. We smoked them for 5 hours until they were very tender. It does not get any better than this.

    Welcome back to the second half of the Bang-Bang. Our second stop of two successive barbeque meals was Baby Blues BBQ. Baby Blues BBQ was only several miles away from Cathead’s but in the City the distance was too far to walk. We did the politically correct thing and took two separate vehicles. This was political correct in my eyes, to protest the bureaucratic fascists that have the title of ‘Spare the Air’.  Ben pointed to a parking spot in a residential area a block and one half away. I pounced on this spot and declared this parking berth, great ‘Parking Karma’. Baby Blues is…

They said yes, I got the two grill lights in the mail, and here you have it. I hope you find this BBQ Grill Light review helpful. If so, please comment below. As a thank you, I am giving away a BBQ Grill Light to one of you who…
  • Fire Down Below BBQ Team – Mansfield, MA

    Competition BBQ teams start up each year with varying success. Some stay in the backyard division for a while, content to BBQ while drinking (you know who you are), others to hone their skills in the backyard division with their sights set squarely on going Pro, and still others who decide to be in it to win it from the get go at the Pro level. As you know by now, I’m a fan of shedding light on teams who have started to gain traction on the Professional BBQ circuit here at The BBQ Beat. As such, I’ve chosen to feature those who have made a conscious effort to refine their…

    You know when you look forward to returning to a BBQ restaurant because the last time you were there, the food was just plain good? I recently had this feeling upon returning to Smokin’ Jim’s BBQ in Auburndale, FL on the way back from picking up my Step-Dad Jim with my Mom, Fran. It had been a little while since I’d seen Jim, so I thought a BBQ lunch at a spot that I remembered to be good and that shared his name would be a nice way to spend the afternoon. Smokin’ Jim’s BBQ has been a local favorite here in Imperial Polk County, FL since February 2005. When it…

    For those of you who don’t know, I have a standing invite out to any team who has either a Reserve Grand or Grand Champion award at a professional level competition to send in a request for being featured in a spotlight post on the BBQ Beat.

    In 2004, 4 Rivers Smokehouse in Winter Park, FL started out as a commissary arm of his ministry to help struggling parents pay for their children’s medical care. By 2009, the initial Fairbanks Ave location near Interstate 4 turned into a restaurant. While the ministry mission of 4 Rivers remains central to the company’s mission, it has since expanded into a new and larger Fairbanks location with additional locations in East Orlando, Winter Garden, Gainesville, Jacksonville, Longwood, Orange Park, Tallahassee, and Tampa, FL. 4 Rivers Smokehouse – Winter Park, FL The…

  • Ribs and Mayo: The Next Big Thing?

    David
    28 Jul 2015 | 12:56 pm
    I was listening to my buddy Joe on the Man Meat BBQ podcast the other day and heard an intriguing idea. The idea? Coating the ribs in mayonnaise before applying the dry rub. Joe mentioned he had read about the idea on one of the bbq forums and I immediately knew where this was going. Folks have been using mayo as a base coat on their chicken for years.  Some people swear it is their secret weapon for chicken. The oils, fats and sugars in mayonnaise just “melt” through chicken during the cooking process and results in a noticeably juicier product.  If it works for chicken their…
  • Easy and Spectacular Grilled Appetizer

    Much credit goes out to my lovely wife for this creation.  To make a long story short, she was craving guacamole and she also wanted some bruschetta.  Hey, easy enough; let’s just stick the two together! Started out with the usual suspects.  No onion in our guacamole, please. For the bruschetta portion I diced up some Roma tomatoes and tossed them with olive oil, salt, pepper and Parmesan cheese.  Normally I add chopped basil but going with the theme I substituted chopped cilantro. For the guacamole part I used three small ripe avocados, the juice of two limes, diced cilantro, salt,…
  • Baking with a Grill Plate

    For the past few weeks I have been playing around with a Grill Plate from GrillInnovations. The Grill Plate is an interesting and innovative product that makes it easy to do serious baking on a gas grill. The Grill Plate is designed to sit on top of your grill grates and redirects burner heat in such a manner that your grill becomes a convection oven. The creator of the Grill Plate, Ed Hamlin, does an excellent job of explaining the technical side of his design here. I have done four cooks with the Grill Plate and they all turned out fantastic. There were two things about the Grill Plate that…
