I’ve mentioned to people that I have a blog, but that it’s been on a bit of a hiatus. Tonight I took a quick look, and it’s been over a year since I’ve written!!! Totally unacceptable. But I’m still around, despite best rumors! So let’s see how 2017 went… in a nutshell: FAST! Continue reading “2018: I’m BACK!!”
Happy 2017! We’re a month and change into the new year, and there already appears to be much going on in the world of grilling, BBQ, and all things related. Personally, it has been an eventful year so far! We’re slowly making our way west, so keep checking in to see where we are!

I hope that 2015 has been a banner year for all of you! It has definitely been an eventful one for the world of BBQ and for me personally. With 2016 just around the corner, let’s take a peek back at what 2015 brought us.
Thanks to Weber Grills Canada for posting this!
Two years ago at the Sam’s Club local qualifier in Greensboro, I met Chris Prieto, pitmaster of PRIME Barbecue out of Wendell, NC. I’ve run into him a couple of times out on the competition circuit, and let me just say he knows his way around BBQ! If you are a fan of PRIME Barbecue on Facebook, then you will have noticed that there has been a BBQ tip a day for almost every day in the month of May. If you’re not a fan… then why not?!?!
Sometimes the idea just hits you, and you can’t help but act on it! I’ve been trying to expand my cooking repertoire beyond the basic grilling and backyard smoking. Not that there’s anything wrong with that at all, but it’s nice to have some variety. I picked out three ingredients from items that I had at home – Blues Hog Original BBQ sauce, a tri-tip roast, and a bottle of red wine. Okay, I went and purchased the red wine because I didn’t want to use the better red wine that was at home… but it was the thought that counts! For the tri-tip roast, I used Black Bart’s Brisket Rub from Tasty Licks BBQ Supply (read my review of the rub on BBQ Sauce Reviews).
