When shopping for the perfect steak to cook, there are so many options to choose from. Some people like a leaner cut such as filet mignon, but sometimes a leaner cuts like filet mignon can be lacking in that extra beefy flavor we crave when eating a steak. Why is that exactly? The internal marbling or i...

    As a Northerner, I had never heard of Pimento Cheese until a few years ago.  I was competing in Big Green Egg’s Eggtoberfest in Georgia and when our team was planning out what we would cook for a mere 5,000 people, one of my teammates suggested putting brisket over pimento cheese grits.  Well, to be honest, my first thought was what on earth was that, and my second thought w...

I recently had the opportunity to test a product which I first heard about on Instagram.  The nice folks at F.I.T. Brine (Flavor Infused Tenderizing Brine) sent me some of their product I could try out and then give them my honest opinion about.  Before we get into discussing F.I.T. Brine, let’s talk about brining and why we should do it at all.

I have a special place in my heart for women who aren’t afraid to get out there and grill.  Taking a hobby such as grilling and venturing into competition grilling and barbecuing is even more adventurous and admirable!  Cowboy Charcoal is putting the spotlight on these women and showcasing their grilling talent.  This year marked the second annual Cowboy Charcoal Fire & Ice Women's Championship Barbecue Series held in November...

I have to say, if there is one thing that is versatile and easy to cook, shrimp is one food that is at the top of my list.   Don’t get me wrong, I fire up my grills year round even through the cold New York winters, but shrimp can just as easily be cooked on the stove or in the oven as well.  Sweet Baby Ray’s wide varieties of BBQ sauces make it even easier to make a great dinner for your family in no time at all.  The be...

Every now and again, something unique catches your eye and you can’t help but be fascinated by it. Last year, I remember seeing a picture of the Arteflame grill for the first time. I will be the first to admit, when I saw that picture, I could imagine this grill being a focal point on my patio someday with logs of wood burning bright in the center. I was officially intrigued. It is a charcoal or wood burning grill, it’s a plan...

Beef ribs, one surefire way to make my eyes light up is to place a huge beef rib that was smoked low and slow for hours in front of me.   That peppery bark, coupled with a couple pounds of smoked, rich, fatty, tender beef on a monster sided bone is enough to make just about anyone excited.  Where I live, you would have to drive at least 4 hours to find a place that makes them, and makes them well.  Because of this, I set out t...

I recently had an opportunity to try out the new Primal Stone which is a new take on an old concept.  When we think about what our ancient ancestors had to cook on, it all makes sense.   The Primal Stone is a flat piece of soapstone which is capable of retaining both heat and cold.  It arrived beautifully wrapped with an instruction card attached.  When heated, it can be used to cook on in an oven or as I desired, on a grill....
