BBQ Smoker Friday Best Bets

BBQ Smoker Friday Best Bets

Friday's Best BetsLoverboy said it best!  Everybody’s working for the weekend!  Man, I still love that song! Friday is upon us and many of you are looking forward to firing up your favorite BBQ Smoker and getting the fire started!  Me? I’m heading down to Venice, FL to attend this weekend’s Suncoast BBQ Bash.  I can’t wait, as it’s been far too long since I was able to get away for a competition.

Even cooler, I get to hang w/ the Team Unknown BBQ crew and help out with their vending.  Be sure to stop by their site if you get to the competition.  I’ll most likely have a brown floppy hat on and be slingin’ riblets as fast as Damien and Steve can prep them off the BBQ Smoker!

But enough about that.  Let’s get to this week’s entries!  

Steelhead with Salmonberry Glaze – Another amazing edition of grilled Food PORN from Larry Gaian over at the BBQ Grail! Not only do you get a nice lesson on what Steelhead actually are, you get an expertly delivered recipe for what’s sure to be a winner in your grilling collection!

Carne Asada Lettuce Wraps – Chris over at Nibble Me This is a great ambassador of all things “cool to grill” … and smoke for that matter!  You are always in for a treat when you visit this site.  Another excellent photographer, the food pics are almost as good as the recipes that come along with them.  Chris really does a nice job of sharing with us not only his recipes, but some of himself and his wonderful family as well.

Burger Night at Bob’s Brew and ‘Que – this ain’t your set it and forget it burger post, folks!  Get ready for a fresh homemade bun, top quality grass-finished beef, and primo fixins!

I love this particular quote pulled from Bob’s post: “A delicate texture, light to the teeth, meaty on the palate, bursting with juice with each bite flowing with flavor. I may never do patties the same again.”

Barbecue Secret Number 6 – Beef Brisket Fat Cap Up or Down? – this entry is from Joe Haynes, author of Obsessive Compulsive Barbecue.  Part 6 in a series on cooking brisket, Joe does some excellent work here.  I love his regional Virginia take on BBQ, and I think you will too!

Peachy Pork Butt –  Just get to this post immediately.  The photos speak for themselves!  Mr. Bob over at the Hog Blog puts out some of the better step-by-step no kidding professional grade BBQ recipes I’ve seen.  A Pro-Level competitor, Bob presents an awesome blend of competition style recipes, killer photos, thoughts, and musings on all things BBQ.  If you love barbecue, get to his blog and put it in your bookmarks or feed reader now!
