    Poultry Shears

    Alright, I am tired of wearing out cheap poultry shears. I spatchcock and/or halve almost all the chickens I smoke and would like to invest in a good set of shears that will last a while. I would also like something that would hold up to doing turkeys if such a product is truly out there...

    Wicked Good Charcoal Briquettes

    I was curious if anyone else had tried this new product from the folks at Wicked Good Charcoal yet. I recently found a distributor in the Kansas City area and was actually after the Weekend Warrior lump to try in the BDS. While I was there he showed me the briquettes that he also carried and I...

    A photographer for CNN was assigned to cover southern California 's Wildfires last year. He wanted pictures of the heroic work the Firefighters were doing as they battled the blazes. When the photographer arrived on the scene, he realized that the smoke was so thick it would seriously impede...

    Humor for Lexophiles (it just sounds dirty)

    HUMOR FOR LEXOPHILES (LOVERS OF WORDS): I wondered why the baseball was getting bigger. Then it hit me. Police were called to a day care where a three-year-old was resisting a rest. The roundest knight at King Arthur's round table was Sir Cumference. To write with a broken pencil is...

    Mexican Style Marinade

    Anyone have a good recipe for a Mexican type marinade? I'm looking mainly for beef for something along the line of fajitas and thin flank type steaks. There are a couple in the archives, but not exactly what I'm looking for I don't think, so I thought I would see if someone had a tried and true...

    Rib Preference Poll

    This for leorousseau. Sounds like a neat idea for a poll to me. Be interesting to see what our members prefer. Maybe one of the mods will merge the threads from the original post in General Discussion so it can be a reference in one tidy spot.

    Burnt End Bonanza

    I have been saving brisket points again for a while to have a burnt end feed. We really enjoy doing this and I thought I'd share some pics of it this time. I always re-rub the area were the point was connected to the flat to make some good bark there while re-smoking the points. Here are the...

    Ribeye and Tater

    Here is a pic of dinner that just came off the new Performer I got for Father's Day. I grilled a pair of 1 lb. ribeyes and cooked baked taters right down in the fire. Pretty good eats. I used RO lump and hickory chunks for fuel. Grilling is a little fast paced for during shots, so I just took a...

    Venison Jerky

    I won some High Mountain Jerky Cure & Seasoning at the gathering last weekend so I figured I better post some pics of the first batch. I thawed out a couple small deer roasts to cut up and ended up with a little over 3 ½ lbs. of meat trimmed and sliced. Seasoned it up and put in a Pyrex baking...

    Cowboy Wisdom

    Every trail has some puddles. There's no place 'round the campfire for a quitter's blanket. Tossin' your rope before buildin' a loop don't ketch the calf. Polishing your pants on saddle leather don't make you a rider. A closed mouth gathers no boots. Don't name a cow you plan to eat. Be...

    Mother's Day Cook (Fresh Whole Shoulders)

    First BDS Smoke

    I took delivery of my BDS last week and finally got to fire it up today. I was impressed for my first time out. The smoker performs as represented and am very happy with the purchase. Finally got enough room for the big smokes. I smoked a brisket, two fatties, a chub of bologna, and 8 andouille...
