Fatbacks a made in heaven BBQ review

Fatbacks a made in heaven BBQ review

The sign outside Says “Slow — Pig funeral ahead”… Reassuring if you’re there for BBQ anything else, maybe not So much . Fortunately,I was hungry. It’s a little place not far from Fortress Bragg, home of the Airborne and Center of the Universe at least if you are from 18th Airborne Corps. Any way the […]

Grilling turkey on the smoker

Grilling turkey on the smoker

    My canvas was a 10 pound turkey. I actually delayed this project for a week or so because I couldn’t find anything under 20 pounds – just a bit too much for the wife and me … probably not the dog, but that’s another story.       I’ve had a lot of […]

Shrimp with salad and avocado

Recipe called for grilling the whole vegetables before cutting them up but I thought it would be much […]

Everything is better with bacon – I actually saw this done on Cowgirl’s Country Life, another blog I follow. I decided to try it out –             So we begin with beer and onion in a small pot. Add the steamer to the top and add the brats … Wrapped […]

Book Review: Fire & Smoke

Book Review: Fire & Smoke

The first BBQ book I ever bought was Big Bob Gibson’s BBQ Book. I’d never heard of Big Bob and I had no idea who Chris Lilly is but the reviews on Amazon were pretty good and I wanted to move up to BBQ from just plain old grilling. If you haven’t read it, it’s […]
