In very sad news, Chris Cappell of the Dizzy Pig BBQ Company and his family lost their house in a fire. Apparently, embers from his bbq cooker made their way to the house and ignited the fire. Chris and his wife were running most of their company from their home and, fortunately, will be able to keep going. These are some of the best folks around the bbq world and are always generous in helping out others. If you've been looking for some new spices to give your grilled and bbq'd foods a new spin, I wholeheartedly encourage you to check out their products. I've been using their Dizzy Dust on just about everything but my cereal...hmmmmmm. You'll know that your money is going to a good cause as well. Think it over. Here's their link The Dizzy Pig BBQ Co.
There's a super-cool article over on the Virtual Weber Bullet site about a visit to the Kingsford Charcoal Factory. There's a good overview of the new Kingsford charcoal and how it burns. Very interesting, thorough stuff.
