  • Re: Garden Thread #2

    Decided to do just cukes and tomatoes (30 plants) this year. Rabbits were hitting the fruit, so I ran my first fence line with rabbit fencing. Poured my first bag of cement. Squirrels decided they were in a Pixar movie, and were grenading tomatoes over the fence to the rabbits. Bastards. A friend owns an industrial fabrics plant and wove me a totally kickass garden net. Rated to hold up in direct sunlight for years. 

    We enjoy giving them away, almost as much as we do eating them. 

    Roo Roo for scale.

    Perhaps this one?

    I think it was @NecessaryIndulg recipe yes thanks
  • Re: Gonna have a party, and you're all invited!

    We hosted a pretty big party yesterday and did beef sliders (with freshly ground meat we did ourselves) and pulled pork on top. Homemade BBQ sauce incorporated the pork drippings. 

    Sounds like you want to be grilling as opposed to baking or low and slow. Accordingly, shrimp skewers might be a good option - they an be prepared in advance, grill quickly and can be eaten neatly with one hand. Some sort of lime cilantro combination would be light and fresh relative to burgs/butt.
    Your slider idea hit a chord with Brandi, so we'll do a butt overnight first and hook that up. I want to try lime cilantro shrimp first - there was a recipe that was popular around here somewhere...

    Are wings an option for apps ??  45 minutes to cook....can keep warm for quite a while while folks are snackin.
    Great idea.  With the two tier we'll add them on top of the butts right at the end of that cook.

    I'd love to meet you!  Following.  
    That's my fault - I missed the big blast this year. Will be rectified soon, brother. 

    Got my attention. When and where......?
    We're in the middle of Greensboro, NC. Come on up!

    thanks for the suggestions, everyone. One thing the BGE does is make you feel like your a gourmet chef. Everyone here do amazing cooks. It'll be fun to party down with everyone who can make it here!
  • Re: OT - Regal Carolina Classic Hot Dog

    Is that a classic NC hot dog? I never knew! We do cheese on ours, too... Looks fantastic. I'm going to get a BS...
  • Gonna have a party, and you're all invited!

    greetings friends,

    ive been in the house two years, the girls have been here six months, and we haven't had a house warming yet...

    gonne do a party

    I'm pretty good with chicken breasts and burgers. Corn. The usual. Might warm up some butt. 

    But - are there quick and good BGE ideas YOU like for a party? I'm talking BGE is active and cooking while people are eating kinda stuff. Burgers are slammin here. Expecting everyone to enjoy them. Maybe some chicken eaters. I always incorporate Polska sausages for those who want a bite of something else. Not looking for ABT suggestions - something faster please. 

    It's going to be a blowout.  I've been promising friends this was going to happen for years and haven't made good. I'll let you all know when it goes live, in case you feel like coming by. I hope you do. 

    All are welcome. None leave hungry.
