  1. Happy 4th and Safe Grilling

    July 3, 2011 by BBQ Jim

    It’s 4th of July weekend which means fireworks and grilling.  Whether you choose to have one or attend one make sure you enjoy yourself safely.

    Also whether you’re grilling this weekend or not, head over the Home Depot and pick up a 2-pack of 20 lb Kingsford Briquettes for $7.97 until July 7th.  That’s almost half price so stock up for the summer!


  2. Sunday Evening Special

    June 26, 2011 by BBQ Jim


    It’s Sunday so I figured I’d grill. No occasion needed. Salmon kabobs, ribs, zucchini and Talia. This will work out to be dinner tonight and lunch for a few days. mmmmmm

  3. Porks’ new look

    May 26, 2011 by BBQ Jim

    The UDSA lowered the recommended temperature from 160 ºF to 145 ºF citing increased production methods as a reason for creating safer meats for consumption.  The reason for the original recommendation was to kill off the natural bacteria in the meat to a safe level.

    It’ll be an interesting change for those of us that learned the cooking temperatures for cooking meat.  It will be an even harder change for those of you that relay on thermometers such as this for cooking.  They’re now obsolete and will more than likely replaced by newer models in the coming weeks in time for the summer season.
