So, a lot has changed in the few years it’s been since I’ve posted any cooks or cigars. In 2015, I hit a peak weight in my life, hopefully for forever. I weighed in at 310 lbs and realized I needed to start making some changes in my life. I started walking and even ran […]
Curses, Tony Bourdain!!! I ran across a video on Facebook one night and realized that I must cook this. Anthony Bourdain did a video with Balvenie where he made steak au poivre over an open flame and was both immediately hungry and inspired. I didn’t have 7 hours in front of me to make the […]
Holy Smokes! Do you have a moment to talk about our lord and savior Christian Eiroa?
So, I’ve largely used the same charcoal for years now. It’s an 80/20 Oak/Hickory blend and not some secret recipe like the Big Green Egg and Kamado Joe Natural Lump Charcoal.

AKA #MagicCityBurn vs. Shula’s Steak House Recently, I was lucky enough to receive a $100 gift card to Shula’s Steakhouse, somewhere that I would never normally eat. Dinner there was quite an experience. I had an amazing glass of XYZin 50 Year Old Vine Zinfandel and their 22 oz bone-in, dry aged, USDA Prime Cowboy […]
It’s Saturday, June 22. Football season is 10 weeks away. And two friends just had new babies. So this afternoon, I’m watching some U20 Soccer and Atlanta Braves baseball on the patio. And in the meantime, I have a ridiculous 8.39 lb bone in Boston Butt cooking away on the Egg.
Amazingly enough, after over a year, I finally got around to doing a rack of ribs on the Egg. Today’s post is more about prep, pics and sauce than anything. The 3-2-1 Method for Spare Ribs has been covered ad nauseum by the rest of the Internet so I don’t feel a great need to […]
