    75% corporate gigs, have a number of construction companies that use us for safety meetings. Try to stay away from weddings way too many calls with plan changes. Private parties make up the balance.

    Cooking with wood

    Seasoned wood is better than green. Down for at least 6 mos. Green wood does not burn as clean putting dirty smoke on the meat.

    The Downfall of Democracy

    Sounds good but what makes anyone think politicians would vote to eliminate their positions? What makes anyone think that those that manipulate want it to change and have everyone vote on everything?

    Which of these roasts is good on the smoker or grill?

    Pikes Peak Roast Also called heel of round, the Pikes Peak roast is cut from low in the round, just above the hock. It contains many small muscles and lots of connective tissue. This is the least tender of the round roasts, but cooks up into a pot roast with excellent flavor. Cook low and slow

    Brisket Experiment

    Why has the fat cap been removed? Prime briskets like low pit temps 190 to 210, check for tender at least 10 degrees before you normally would.

    Tri Tip Ideas?

    Rate my rib box please...

    If you are going to put a rib on it's side it needs smokering, well rendered fat and be very moist or don't do it. Not saying yours is some how wrong just make sure you are there if you do it. I think the box looks great, some minor adjustments it is over the top.
