BBQ, Grilling, & Outdoor Cooking

If you’ve spent any time with the Intrepid crew you probably know how much we love some good BBQ.  I mean just search BBQ on the site above and see how many hits you get.  Last summer Ruth and I splurged and bought ourselves the Char Griller Duo that has a gas section and a section for charcoal or smoking in hopes that it could hold enough meat to feed a household of hungry Intrepids during cookouts and parties.

I’ll be honest and say that I’ve been a natural gas/propane man nearly my entire life.  Come on, it’s easy on, easy off, heats up quickly, less mess to clean up.  It’s just more convenient in general so needless to say my charcoal/smoker side of the grill was neglected for nearly year before I mustered up the courage to give smoking meat a try.

My first attempt was a test in perseverance to just get the charcoal lit.  The ribs turned out pretty well and way more flavorful than had we cooked them on the propane side, in the oven, or in the slow cooker.  A few experiments later with each attempt better than the last, Nik and I sparked up a post-wod conversation on smoking meats and the website that might have changed my life as I know it.

Amazingribs.com is the online mecca for everything BBQ, Grilling, and Outdoor Cooking.  Craig Goldwyn, a.k.a “Meathead”, is the BBQ Whisperer and has some much useful information on his site that I don’t know where to begin.  Recipes, cooking recommendations, other tips, humorous posts, etc. it’s all really great stuff.  As “Meathead” says on his site, “the world’s oldest cooking method and among all the creatures on earth, only humans cook. It can be said that barbecue is what made our ancestors human. Heck, it may be the world’s second oldest profession.”  So read up on Amazingribs.com and boost your grilling game to the next level just in time for summer.
