We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • How did you get started cooking??

    Not that I'm a supreme chef and really don't do much in the kitchen, but really got into grilling because of my love for hunting and the outdoors.  I spend quite a bit of time in the hunting camp (though not as much as I used to), and got tired of eating hot dogs and peanut butter sandwiches.  Nothing like a really good steak, smoked brisket or grilled fajitas and some cold beer at deer camp under the stars. 
  • Egg is going to pay for itself in no time

    Not to mention that since getting the Egg, we eat out far less often since what comes off the Egg is as good or better than anything to be found in local restaurants, and healthier too.  And with a family of five, even the most middle of the road places to eat are usually at least $50-$60 after tip. 

    The only exception we make is the occasional Tex-Mex at a couple of our favorite places.

    Here's the pic

  • Sunday at The Masters. What are you cooking, and who you got winning?

    I picked Kuchar before the tournament so I'll stick with him.  That said, I am really pulling for Jordan or hoping that Couples can make a historic run.  What a story either of those would be.

    Probably do some hanger steak fajitas this evening after the tournament.  During the tournament, it's buddies and beer in my garage watching the event.

  • OT: Golf Club Advice Needed

    I have played on and off for the better part of 30 years, sometimes pretty religiously and others not so much like now as work and kids don't allow it near as much.  I also have a 16-year-old who plays on the HS team and is becoming a pretty good golfer himself.

    I'll echo the advice of some to find a quality name brand used set with relatively standard length and lie, at least the irons.  Find something he likes and is fairly forgiving to hit since he is a beginner.  Most golf shops will have a decent selection in their used bins and you can usually take them out to hit on the range since they are used with the ability to return them if you want something different.  Also a fitting for a 15-year-old is lunacy, other than someone telling you what flex shaft he needs, which is probably regular flex at his age.  His length/lie angle could change by the month at 15.  If you fit him now, he will need new sticks and a new fitting in six months.  Mine has shot up about four inches in the last year.  For the driver and fairway wood(s), getting new wouldn't be as big a deal, although you could still find good recently made woods for a lot less than retail for new.

    Hopefully he grows to love the game....it is great and can be lots of fun not just now, but for life! 

    On a side note, mine loves golf as well as hunting.  Sounds like we're doing something right  :-c
