Finally - Barbecue, Barbeque, BBQ!!!!
Today, April 1st, 2005, I played hookey and hooked up (in the 50s sense of the word) with my buddy Phil, the Grand Poohbah and exalted mystic ruler of the BBQ-Brethren, and actually cooked some barbecue!!!!!!!!!!! My long dry spell is over.
Phil recently purchased a new smoker from David Klose of Klose BBQ pit's. It is an incredible piece of machinery. This model is not on the market yet, but let me tell you, the MOAB (join the BBQ-Brethren to find out what that means) was the best pit I ever cooked on. Dave Klose and his team are outstanding craftsman.
We Q'd up steak, wild salmon, sausages, chicken wings and thighs. We experimented with rubs from HomeBBQ, Head Country and others. We used sauces from Pepperheads, Whoop Ass, HomeBBQ and others. What a great way to spend the day.
How'd it turn out? Most of it was great, some not so good, and some down right inedible. But today was a day to experiment. I'm going to bed tonight happy and smelling like smoke!
