    The Meat House

    For those of you who have The Meat House near you, give them a look. I was in Charlotte, NC this past week and used them. The meat is high choice, but the best part is they were quite knowledgeable, something I have find lacking in the meat departments I patron. Pricing may be a bit more...

    Wild boar

    Nearly 200lbs of wild boar is about to land in my freezer. I have been designated with the task for figuring out the learning curve for preparing this mass of meat. I have a decent idea about some prep and cooking techniques required for the leanness of this meat, but does any one have any...

    Job well done.

    Hey Jamie, Congrats on the new book. It wasn’t all that long ago that I was searching all over for information about the “bones” to grilling. A resource like your new book would have made the learning curve a bit more streamlined. Good stuff. Gary

    Where's the beef?

    I was running errands, and on my return trip home I decided to pick up a brisket for the weekend. I have a few places around town that I normally do my beef purchases, but on this day I was not near them. I stopped by Publix, Costco & Wallyworld, and IF they had a brisket they were the most...

    Flat breads

    I was in Charlotte NC a few days ago, and sat down for a beer at Wolfgang’s Bistro. They served the best flat bread. I have no problem paying $3.75+ for a domestic beer (even though Miller Lite - South African owned - and Bud - Belgian owned - are no longer domestic ) when you get a yummy...

    Just a little note of caution for all the lump fans out there...... I have known lump to snap, crackle and spark, but while starting a fire the other day I had a piece of lump explode. I was standing about four feet away, and I had just started the flames when a fragment of exploding/burning...
