  • Smokin Tiger, We keep horseradish sauce real simple, It seems to me that some folks try to do to much to HR sauce and it is not so good. [p]1 cup Sour Cream 3 Tbls Horseradish (more if you like)[p]Mix together and serve.[p]Enjoy the prime rib. DB
  • Memphis, GOOD Country ham is great sliced to eat for breakfast. Fry for a short time (maybe 2 min.)on each side. My dad loved red eye gravy, cook 2 or 3 batches of ham them add some coffee and reduce, for eggs and grits. I love the ham but I don't …
  • Jpond, I got 2 pints at Sam's (they were 2.99 a pint) I made Oyster Rockafella (sp?) with one pint. I grilled them in a cupcake pan, it wasn't real pretty but they sure tasted good. I deep fried the other pint. Good Luck DB
  • Rick's Tropical Delight, Ok I know its late for turkey pics but.....[p] The gravy was as good as the Turkey Thanks again Max DB
  • Rascal, I did not brine mine. From the reviews I got from the family I don't think it could have been better. Most said it was the best they had eaten. I ran out of lump just a little to soon, I think the thighs could have cooked a tad more. Filled…
  • TNJake, When I check mine after he first hour the liquid was gone advice from forum was to add more liquid.I added apple juice and it did fine. I have added turcky stock each time I basted it and it is looking great DB

  • mr.b, Those ribs look great. I have only done ribs one time and I was a little disappointed but it because I didn't let them cook long enough. Sometimes you either have to start earlier or move the dinner bell to later. DB
  • Sven, They cooked really quick. Check your meat probe and make sure it is not in a fat pocket. Have you checked your therm. to make sure its correct? If these two things check out I would pull it at 200 deg and wrap it. DB
  • JudyFoodie, I won't be there. Tuesday is our 25th anniversary and we are going to Destin, FL. I talked about coming back a couple of days early to go to the fest and the wife was not to excited about so I forgot it, when registration closed I told …

  • KathyJo Peterson, I'm not in Texas, I live in NC, BBQ is all about pork in NC. In NC its a standing rule that if its not pig its not BBQ. We may change that with the BGE DB
  • Dut, Man those look like some good shrimp I might have to raid the freezer and cook some tonight. DB
  • Need helping writing a report on Midwest Eggfest, This is a great report you might have to take a position as roving reporter for the BGE. Glad to hear your brisket turned out well, it might just be a myth that you have to cook brisket 15-17 hrs. W…
