    Our local flyer for Fry's (Kroger) had briskets for $1.99 lb. instead of $ 4.99 I jumped on it. You might want to check your local Kroger ads if you have any near you. Our Costco is $5.49 a pound for choice briskets.

    Head scratcher with my performer.

    I have an issue with my performer. During the summer charcoal ban it sat covered up for about 4-5 months. When the ban was lifted I went to fire it up for some vortex thighs. The gas ignitor wouldn't lite the gas. Using a fire stick it fired up and worked fine. The ignitor was replaced last...

    When it Rains it Pours

    Decided I had to take a chance and make some bacon as we were getting really low. With the unpredictable monsoons and the Camp Chef pellet grill sitting out in the open mixing the Camp Chefs electronics with rain was not a good combination. Forecast said no rain until late afternoon so I fired...

    Went to Costco to do a little shopping and of course a trip through the meat dept. was called for. Needed to pick up another pork belly or two. Well they only had one out in the cooler case so I asked one of the meat guys if they had more in the back. He smiled and said nope that's the last one...

    Pastrami Burger

    Saw a recipe in the Food Network Magazine that interested me. A pastrami burger. Just had to try it. Had to do it inside as the rain and wind even on our covered patio was to wet to work in. We used our homemade pastrami, I have to admit the flavor was outstanding. Just some bag fries and tots...

    Happy Days Are Here Again

    Well I really can’t believe it the fire authority and state opened up the national forests and state forests and removed all the fire restrictions including the use of charcoal. We got a lot of rain this past week and I guess it was enough to let them open everything up again. After reading the...

    Huli Huli Real Close To The Real Deal

    Barb and I are big fans of Huli Huli chicken, when we used to go to Maui a lot we would look for the roadside stands. But the last few times we went which was about 15 years ago the stands were not to be seen going from the airport to Napili Bay. So we started making it at home. We have 4 or 5...
