Hope everyone had a very happy Thanksgiving! A few weeks ago, I wrote about my practice turkey cook for Thanksgiving. I was pretty happy with the cook, but a few tweaks and small changes were needed. Or so I thought…
Some of my favorite people ever are the crew from the Ubon’s BBQ team. At Memphis in May each year, they have a tradition of serving “The Perfect Sandwich”. For those of you who are not familiar with this sandwich, it is a smoked prime rib sandwich served on a sandwich roll with mayo and horseradish. And if you ask real nicely, Leslie may even dip the inside of the sandwich roll in the au jus for you. The recipe for both the prime rib and the “Perfect Sandwich” can be found in the book Peace, Love, and Barbecue.
With Independence Day well into our rear view mirrors, it’s time to look forward to the next major grilling holiday.

(By the way, my birthday was this past Sunday – August 4th – so feel free to send gifts.)

Where can you go wrong?!
A few days ago, my wife went to a local farmer’s market and came home with quite the haul. Amongst her haul was a bag of fresh mint leaves. She suggested that I look for a recipe combining pork chops and mint. After some searching around and application of my Google-fu skills, I found a recipe on the Pork Be Inspired website for Grilled Pork Chops with Mint Chimichurri. For those who are interested in seeing the recipe, you can find it here. I had to make one minor tweak to it due to not having an ingredient, so here is the recipe I used for the mint chimichurri:
