    Some pics from our last smoke in the Blue Ridge

    I met someone here on the forums earlier this year when trying to organize a get together for the VA Smokers group.  Here are a few pics of our second smoke at the cabin from a couple weekends ago.    We smoked a couple butts, brisket, ribs & had a great time again.

    I won my first competition......

    But it was just a back yard party contest.  All for fun & charity.  Two groups, the Home Brewer's club & The Pepper Lovers club got together for a brew & BBQ contest & party.  They brought the beer & we brought the BBQ & sides.  There were 10 pulled pork entries.  This was my second time...

    Entering another competition :)

    Really starting to get comfortable & confident with BBQ

    I bought my first barrel smoker about 4 years ago & did pretty well with chicken.  I just wasn't getting the results I wanted with pork or brisket till I started lurking around here & Jeff's site.  I wasn't taking care of my smoker either & left it outside most of the time.  Last year the bottom...

    Emergency advice needed!

    How long can a pork butt rest wrapped up with towels in a cooler & still be "pull-able"?

    Independence Day party at undisclosed location in VA :)

    I have made BBQ for about 6 total over the years.  Just didn't have opportunity to do much larger.  This year I am expecting around 25 or so & doing lunch and dinner.  I admit I will probably break some BBQ etiquette because of my rig limitations or because I wanna do this & still enjoy the fun...

    I think I am gonna do this!

    Neighbor got a Brinkman Trailbalzer for Xmas...not going so well..advice?

    Oops its a trailmaster!  This is all my fault cause I got his family addicted to my BBQ.  Anyway he did his maiden voyage with 2-8lb butts which he put on a 7am.  He has been running at 275 degrees all day & right now they are only at 155 after 10 hours.  Of course he has a bunch of people...

    Teriyaki marinade/glaze

    I have been using this recipe for over 25 years.  One of the reasons why I like to make most everything I eat from scratch is because I am so often disappointed by store bought bottled sauces or marinades.  In regards to teriyaki specifically is that they all taste salty or too much soy.  This...

    My spice source

    Being new to the forums I was not sure where to post this.  If a mod has to move it I will take note.  Anyway as you all get to know me I prepare/cook just about everything I eat from scratch.  I have one entire cabinet in my kitchen dedicated to spices along with herbs & peppers that I grow &...

    Ketchup recipe

    I like to make as much of what I eat from scratch.  I used to prefer Heinz Ketchup over any others.  Since I got this recipe from another cooking forum I belong to I have not bought Heinz again.  Ketchup I think this recipe came from Hillbilly Housewife 1 (6 ounce) can tomato paste 1/2 cup...
