Hi Everyone!

I am currently working on opening a BBQ shop in D.C. I started cooking at a young age and went to culinary school. However, my main passion was always smoking! I have created the recipe for the worlds greatest potato salad. I hope some of you will want to share recipes for your grilling parties!

Why not sign up for Jeff's Free 5 Day eCourse...It's a great little course, and the price is right to boot!

Culinary school huh?...Maybe you can teach us some new tricks!

Welcome to SMF TheBlondeBBQer. Glad to have another culinary artist and chef among us. Keep us posted how the progress goes on opening that BBQ shop. There is a thread here with another member who's opening a place and all his activities as he gets ready for opening day...

welcome to smf. eveyone that eats my Q tells me i ought to open a bbq place here. if i ever lose my job i might do that. i would think it would be quite different doing it for a living, vs. for doing it just to feed my family for a few days.

WOW! Thanks everybody! I appreciate all your hospitality! It's always nice to have friends with the same passion for BBQ as me! The restaurant is getting a slow start, as we need another loan BUT we finally found a place! Its an old restaurant close to the Hill. We also are at a complete standstill on the name too! If anyone has any suggestions for a good BBQ shop name give me a shout out! I want it to be original, but it seems like all the good names are taken! As for the potato salad... HERE IT IS!!! I hope you like it.


The Blonde BBQer

4 to 5 boiled potatoes (don't boil too long as it is better crunchy)
1 cup mayo
2 TBS, apple cider vinegar
1/2 onion GRILLED with BBQ spice rub on top
1 1/2 TBS sea salt
as much black pepper as you like
1 TBS brown sugar
1/4 cup yellow mustard
2 TBS celery seed
AND TO TOP....CRISPY CRISPY CRISPY BACON!!! lots of bacon crumbles.

I hope that you like it

WAIT! I almost forgot the cayenne pepper!!! It adds the perfect kick. I like to add lots, but you can add as much as you like!
The hotter the better!

Seeing that you're in D.C. How about "Blowin' Smoke - A BBQ joint" or "Smoke Blowin' BBQ"?


Good luck on everything!

HaHaHa!! YES!! i def. want a politics themed joint since i'm in the area. certain items on the menu will reflect that too. we will have the ba"rack" obama ribs, bill clinton "i smoked this chicken but i didnt inhale" chicken, Bush's baked beans, ted kennedy beer can chicken..etc! what do you think about a picture of uncle sam saying...I WANT YOU to eat this BBQ. (and he has bbq sauce around his mouth and is holding a rib. I know it sounds corny, but this stuff sells!

Hi, welcome to SMF. I'm a Georgetown born and raised boy now in Key West with my wife.
I know the franchises up there, Red, White & Blues names are taken, but I'm just thinking out loud here...

Bipartisan BBQ
The Republican Rib
The Gingrich Grill (kidding)
Congressional Grilling Co.
Pork Barrel BBQ

That's what I've got so far. Thanks for recipe!

The only thing you forgot or need to change to really kick this up a notch, smoke the Potatoes.  And also the Sea Salt, smoked is wonderful.

Add the Cayenne, yes, but I bet you a dollar, if you smoked those potatoes it would be kicked up much farther and taste better also.
