Grilling Season 2015-Part 2

First Image
The previous blog entry: GRILLING SEASON 2015-PT. 1, covered some of the silly rituals and routines that mark the dates when the perceived start of the grilling season occurs. The conventional wisdom is everyone, or at least “normal people” grill only between Memorial Day and Labor Day. The coming of the “Official Grilling Season” marks the annual rollout of new grill models for the coming year. GRILLING SEASON 2015-PT. 2 will cover the rollout of the new grills for 2015.

Grilling Season 2015-Part 1

First Image
This blog entry is something I do semi-regularly each year when the warm weather arrives and Memorial Day approaches…If you are looking for a “How-to” or “Review” move you won’t find it in this two part entry. This is a bit of a celebration of the coming of the nice weather and a discussion of what starts happening around this time…Around now you get a preview of the year to come and I just enjoy seeing the new gear that comes out. Plus I get to be both sad and amused by the yearly ritual when it is deemed to be the proper time to grill. Read More...

Road Trip-Tasty Licks Barbecue

First Image
I recently made a BBQ related road trip to Shillington, PA. If Shillington, PA sounds vaguely familiar to you, then you may have seen YouTube vides by Fred Bernardo, aka “The Smoking Guitar Player”, owner of Tasty Licks Barbecue supply. From the YouTube videos I had watched, I could see it was the largest BBQ stores I had ever seen. It was certainly bigger than any BBQ store I am aware of here in New England. Some things recently came together to allow me to make a 32 hour quickie road trip to Tasty Licks, which is the subject of this blog entry. Read More...

These Pans Have the Midas Touch

First Image
I recently added to and completed (for now) my collection of some excellent bakeware. It is good enough, I thought I would devote a blog entry to it. I am referring to the Williams-Sonoma Goldtouch line of non-stick bakeware. Normally I wouldn’t get too excited about a line of pans, but these particular pans are demonstratively better in several categories. I will make my case and you can decide, but these pans have certainly made a difference in my baking. So much so that I have pretty much replaced all of my conventional baking pans with the Goldtouch. Read More...

600th Picture Post - How I Got Here

First Image
The BISCUIT BREAKFAST PUDDING from this past weekend marked my 600th Picture Post on this site. This caused me to think back to where I was before I started this site and where I have come. The idea for a blog entry came to mind where I might encourage people to push themselves to do more. Many folks see pictures of what I have cooked and say: “Wow that is great, but I could never do that it is too complicated”. To that I say: “Nonsense!” I will talk about the steps that got me to the level I am at today. As part of this blog I will talk about where I was prior to getting my first serious grill in 2003. You will see if I can do it, anyone can do it.
