We hope you all got to celebrate those tasty food holidays last week, we sure enjoyed them! We are even more excited about the beginning of fall, for so many reasons, but mainly for experiencing the cool, crisp air while being outside cooking up the best recipes the season has to offer. We especially love these Beer Pork Tenderloin and Ground Beef Acorn Squash recipes! Fall is upon us, and it's a great time for getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

  • Re: The De-Facto Brisket Discussion.... Where is it?

    And I think I'll enjoy a few Bourbon Sweet Teas while cooking tonight/tomorrow:

    Bourbon Sweet Tea


    makes 1 large pitcher, serves 6-8

    • 3 cups water
    • ½ cup sugar
    • 2 or 3 black tea bags
    • 1 lemon, sliced into wedges
    • 1 lime, sliced into wedges
    • 1 orange, sliced into wedges
    • 1 cup bourbon
    • Lemon wheels for garnish


    1.To make the tea: Combine the water and sugar in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Pour the sugar water into a jar, add the tea bags, and let steep for 5 to 10 minutes, depending on how strong you want your tea. (If you like your tea very strong, leave the bags in the tea for longer.)

    2. Remove the tea bags and add the lemon, lime, and orange wedges. Pour in the bourbon. Cover the jar and chill.

    3. Serve in small glasses and garnish with thin lemon wheels.

  • Re: xxl egg

    I saw one at my Dealer yesterday actually....

    I'd buy an XL and a L, or 3 Larges, or some other combination of "multiple eggs" before spending $5,800 on the XXL.

    Just my $0.02

  • Re: Electric lighters - how long to 400?

    With my looftlighter..... probably around 15-20 minutes. 

    I can fast-track it, just leave the looftlighter on the lump a long time, and light a bunch of different spots - but 90% of the time, I don't want the whole load burning to begin with, and I'd overshoot 400 that way, so I don't bother.

  • Re: The 6 most important barbecue sauce styles in the country

    Not knowing much about the "real BBQ scene" down there in the Sates....

    Am I the only one who loves the Southern Carolina - mustard based sauce? It's my favorite sauce for Pulled Pork by a long-shot
  • Re: What's The Best Most Recent Concert You've Been To

    No offense but, Queen without Freddie Mercury? I know bands do this occasionally but, that would be like No Kurt Cobain w/ Nirvana, No Boss with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band. Etc. Don't get me wrong I'm sure it'll be a good show.
    Totally agree with you @NPHuskerFL .  REALLY not sure about this one, but to give it a little context: 

    I'm 29, was too young to SEE Freddie, but I grew up with Queen's music listening to my Dad's record collection (along with Pink Floyd, Zeppelin, etc. etc.).  If I had a time machine and permission to go to any historical concert - it would be a Queen show.

    I saw this pop up in my city one day and.... I suppose out of respect for the band as a whole, I had to buy tickets.  After all, it's the closest I'll ever come to seeing "proper"Queen perform.  2/4 members are better than none right?
