JoeTisserie Chicken I

JoeTisserie chicken on the kamado joe classicTropical Storm Hermine is tracking away from coastal Virginia and the backyard has been cleaned up and is back in order, –mostly.

Yesterday, Midge wanted to cook up a mess of hotdogs on the grill to not heat up the house. I had wanted to do a JoeTisserie chicken, but that would need to wait.

Lodge L2SP3 Cast-Iron 2-Quart Serving Pot

I am a big fan of cooking outdoors on my Kamado Joe grill. Lighting up that pile of lump charcoal and then watching the flames dance about just melts away the stress. Toss on a few pieces of wood for smoke flavoring, well it just brings out that inner caveman in all of us.

I have researched a lot of cast iron products for use on the grill. Of everything I have researched, Lodge has stood out above the rest. This product review is on the Lodge L2SP3 Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron Serving Pot, 2-Quart, –or in my view, the perfect Kamado Joe sized 2-quart dutch oven. Continue reading

Grilled Bratwurst On The Kamado Joe



Today, for a bit of lunchtime table fare, I fired up the Kamado Joe. I had a few bratwurst in the fridge that were begging for some outdoor grilling action.

Today is shaping up to be the better half of the weekend. Tomorrow, yet another cold front will have made its way into my neck-of-the-woods with a rain and snow mix to coat everything.

Grilling is one of my favorite outdoor activities. The daily 9 to 5 stress just melts away as my inner caveman awakens. The fire, the smoke, the food, the tantalizing aroma of it all mixed together. I can’t forget to include the cold refreshing beverage(s).

I own three outdoor grills (for now).

Easy Barbecue Dry Rub Shaker

I have been using these “Ball Herb Shaker Tops” as barbecue dry rub shakers for the past several months. They are amazing! I found them a while back at my local big-box store clearance aisle.

I can mix up a batch of my favorite dry rub recipe for some awesome barbecue baby back ribs, smoky pulled pork, barbecue chicken, or other favorite grilling recipes. The dry rub shaker has fast become one of my favorite grilling accessories.

I take every opportunity to light up the grill or smoker for some awesome table fare. With the shaker, I can add an extra bit of barbecue zing to whatever I am grilling.

The BFFs also look forward my grilling adventures as well because they will usually get a tasty tidbit or two, or maybe three…
