  1. Time To Stock Pile

    September 2, 2011 by BBQ Jim

    Home Depot is having a great sale on charcoal starting today through the 7th.  40 lbs of coals for almost half off.  A great bargain. I’m heading out tomorrow to pick up a few bags myself. I’ll try to leave you some if you’re lucky.

  2. Sometimes you gotta give

    August 26, 2011 by BBQ Jim



    Huuricane Irene is coming so I wanted to be stuck in the house with my favorite type of food; BBQ.  Problem is, the rain came before I could finish. Oh well, I did get the chicken and burgers done.

  3. Food recalls

    Two recalls to note as of late. One for ground beef and one for ground turkey.  Hopefully your not affected but if you are, check with the store you bought your meat from.

  4. Shaking off the Rust

    August 12, 2011 by BBQ Jim


    Breaking out the grill for some chicken thighs and veggie burgers. Yeah I know but I like the both.

  5. Lessons never learned

    July 18, 2011 by BBQ Jim


    It never seems to amaze me how much I get so caught up in the process of grilling that I miss the simple things. Take for instance boneless chicken breasts.

    I know that if they’re too think I should whip out my mallet to flatten them or a knife to butterfly them. I seem to re-learn this lesson a lot. Hopefully someday it will stick.

  6. Looks like rain

    July 7, 2011 by BBQ Jim


    So I’m going to sneak in a quick grilling before the showers. On tap are burgers and dogs and if there’s time wings then ribs. It’s probably not that safe but I’ve been thinking about it all day.

  7. 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!


  8. 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

  9. Happy Father’s Day

    June 19, 2011 by BBQ Jim

    Do dad a favor, fire up the grill for him and cook for him. If you don’t know how (or he won’t allow it) clean his grill, get him some new fuel and some of his favorite grilling items and encourage him to get out on the grill. You may not think he wants to cook on this day but trust me, he’ll enjoy the smiles on you faces it creates.

  10. 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.
