I take part in a discussion group at Smoked Meat Forums. A member there manufactures and sells his own line of cures and brine. He was kind enough to send me a package of his salmon brine. So, you need to know he supplied it for free but this is my honest opinion of it. Continue reading Mad Hunky Salmon

I make most of my dishes from scratch, including Jerky. However, there are commercial products out there that are of a high quality and give a great result. Hi Mountain Jerky mixes are one of those products. Continue reading Hi Mountain Bourbon BBQ Blend Jerky

I have met so many great people since I started this blog. Recently, I met Ian of Kirian Spices on Twitter. He traveled to Greece and found that their oregano had a stronger and fresher flavour than the oregano we get here. He started importing Greek spices. Continue reading Kirian Spice Review
I was contacted by EZ Flame BBQ Inc. and asked to try out their product, the EZStart® Charcoal Chimney. There was two problems with this. First, I don’t like to take free products to review in case it sucks. Second, what could be new in the world of charcoal chimneys? You put newspaper in the bottom, coals in the top and light it.

Today, I opened this Christmas present to find a personalized cutting board with my blog address and a not to She Who Must Be Obeyed. It is very high quality with no seams and a good thickness. The art and manufacture was comes from Naturally Art by Alanna Gail.
I love the board and my family for their thoughtfulness and kindness! I will use it well!

I love trying products that are different and I really want there to be more small business productions of food to get more variety in what is available. I ordered my first bottle of Koss Sauce.
