The Hampton Smoker

What's up wtih what's going down? Does a tree falling on the ocean with no one around make a sound? Barbecue, BBQ, Bar-b-que. It's all in how you sell it.

Colder than a.....

5 degrees when I woke up this morning. With the wind, something like -20 or so. I have always said I could 'cue in any kind of weather. I'm rethinking that theory. But it's been weeks since I've had the smoker fired up and my withdrawl symptons are kicking in-- I mix rubs to keep the edge sharp, try out new sauce combinations. I may have to fire up the stovetop smoker again, just to smell the wood burning.

Hey, we're more than bbq around here, ya know...Introducing the BLOT: Bacon, Lettuce, Onion and Tomato.

The Blot


Tried some bacon from Burger's Smokehouse last weekend and it was pretty darn good. It'd be great on a sandwich. I might prefer Nueske's, but not by a whole lot. I do love that applewood flavor.

The in-laws sliced up a pepper-crusted, smoked pork tenderloin from New Braunfels Smokehouse and served it with some sharp cheddar cheese and Carr's Crackers as hors doeuvres at cocktail hour. Yum.
