Let me start this off by saying… my in-laws rock! While I had to go in to the office to work this past Saturday, they, along with my wife, worked out in our yard and got it in decent shape. For all the hard work that they did, I had to pay them back somehow. And how does someone with a passion for BBQ pay back a favor? Why, with BBQ, of course! And luckily for me, the requested meat was ribs!
A couple of weeks ago, I decided that this weekend would be the weekend that I would cook my first brisket. And as it turned out, the weather could not have been more perfect!
Normally I don’t do a link and run post (I try to save those up for the weekly “best of” blog entries on Sundays). However, I recently came across a post from DivaQ (@DivaQBBQ on Twitter) for an “ultimate bacon jalapeño sausage super fatty” as a suggestion for a Super Bowl party appetizer.
About a month or so back, I came across a blog post by DivaQ regarding pig candy. You can find her post here. As I finally arrived home and began to prepare dinner (burgers on the grill… tasty tasty!), the lure of bacon bacon bacon lingered in the back of my mind. I said to myself, “Self, I should do some smoked pig candy tonight.”
