How Often do you Cookout?
May is National Barbecue Month and so lets get a feel for how often you head outback to grill or smoke. I realize that if you are reading this that you probably cook outdoor often, but still it doesn't hurt to ask. Once, a few years ago I set out to cook three meals a day on the grill or smoker for a full week. Turned out that the family ended up eating more than normal, but it certainly wasn't a chore to do. I've found that once you've got the experience with a wide range of foods you really can do all the backyard cooking without a lot of extra work. Anyway, this weeks question is:...Read Full Post

Anyway I thought I would ask what you like so this weeks question is:...Read Full Post
First Look: The Ribalizer
A few years back Mark Vinci set out to make a great rack of ribs on a gas grill. Not necessarily as easy as it might sound. Gas grills do not hold smoke, so it is hard to transfer that flavor to the food. Then there is the problem of not burning the ribs, while still getting a good crusted surface before the ribs dry out or fall apart. Remember if the bone falls out you are not eating ribs, you are eating slabs of boneless pork....Read Full Post
