As you may know, BBQ Pitmasters recently put out a call for audition videos for the new season. Here are some of the videos that I’ve been able to find so far. If your video isn’t listed on here (and you want it listed), let me know! Also, if I screwed something up, please let me know that too! Finally, if you don’t wish to have your video on this page, shoot me an email to [email protected], and I’ll remove it.
I have to confess… I have a thing for t-shirts. They’re the perfect way for showing off your passion. Whether it’s a shirt from a BBQ/grilling event, your favorite restaurant, a competition team, or just something that makes you laugh, you can’t go wrong with a shirt! Below are some of the more amusing shirts I’ve seen so far (pictures are linked to a page where they can be purchased). Most of these are bacon-themed because… well… bacon just rocks! A couple of these I already own and can attest to their awesomeness.

My original idea was to do a fried turkey this year, but instead we decided to do one on the smoker.

The stars were aligning – smoked turkey was my destiny for this year!

This work training has offered up the chance (when not in training) to take in sights, check out good eats, and meet up with friends. A few weeks ago I was in the DC area, and in between training sessions, I had the chance to do all of the above!
Everybody likes a new toy. It’s okay to admit it… in some form or fashion, we all like to have a new gadget. I’d like to introduce the newest member of my outdoor cooking arsenal – the 22 1/2” Weber Smoky Mountain smoker!
