    January 30, 2012 by BBQ Jim


    I got the word over the weekend that my class will be in session starting on February 2!

    Class time will be a little tight but there’s a lot to go over and we’ll be eating good while we learn. Hope to see you there!

  2. Trunk Full of Coals

    Yup, that’s 120 lbs of charcoal in my trunk. Unfortunately my gym clothes are in there somewhere so I don’t get to workout tonight. Guess I should’ve taken my trip to storage a little sooner. See yesterdays post on where you can get yours.

  3. 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.

  4. First Flame

    May 23, 2011 by BBQ Jim

    First flame has come and gone but I’m just getting around to writing about it. What is First Flame? It’s the first outdoor BBQ of the year. For now, it’s not a major event for me but I do celebrate it in my own way each year.

    First, I deeply clean my grill.  I want it to last a long time and since I use it heavily it must get an annual proper cleaning.

    Next comes a resupply of charcoal.  Kingsford is my brand of choice. I’ve used many different brands and types extensively and nothing compares to the consistent burn it gives throughout the life of the briquette.

    While I’m at it I always grab a new light stick, grill brush and lighter fluid (also by Kingsford).

    Once I’m fully stocked and cleaned comes the setup. Nothing elaborate about that.

    The menu consists of a wide array of food. Ribs, chicken wings, veggies, fish, sausage and burgers.  Why so much? It’s simple, First Flame is the way to start off the year by working out all the kinks and get the pallet ready for the flavors of the year.

    Now that the sun is warming the air you should have your First Flame if you haven’t already.
