I received my mail order today (1-27-23) from Blues Hog BBQ. The baby blue tee is a sweet addition to my BBQ shirt collection. Definitely looking forward to wearing this comfy soft tee this coming 2023 BBQ season. #bbq #blueshogbbq #bbqtshirts #bbqrubs #bbqworldchampions #mybbqjourney #bbqlovers #bbqsauces #blueshog

The Meat Report: Texas Beef and Pork 1-22-23

2023 is in full swing now and the carnivorous selections at H-E-B are looking quite delicious for this late in January. Which one you picking? Tomahawk Steak? Brisket? Ribs? Pork Belly Burnt Ends? or BACON? I love to hear and see what you are creating out there my fellow BBQ pitmasters.

The Meat Report: La Azteca Meat Market 1-14-23

We have a friend in town from North Carolina so I just had to make a meat run over to La Azteca Meat Market to pick up Carne De Puerco Al Pastor/Marinated Pork For Tacos. I know I have said this before but if you are a taco lover and especially Tacos Al Pastor, La Azteca is where you should be going for the marinated meat to create them. The selection and great prices of marinated meats is so impressive at La Azteca and the side items like the amazing El Mexicano Crema Mexicana and fresh Cojita cheese deliver your tacos to a whole new level of awesomeness.

The Meat Report: Texas Beef, Pork, Baking and Cornish Hens, Ducks & Turkey 1-07-23

The first Meat Report of 2023 from my favorite meat department, H-E-B. What are you smoking for the first time this year? Ribs? Brisket? Duck?

Xmas 2022 Early Gifts: Meat Church BBQ 11-25-22

It is always a great day at the mailbox when you see a box arrive from Meat Church BBQ in Waxahachie, Texas.

I had started to run low on Texas Sugar BBQ Rub and decided to put in an BBQ rub order for some more Sugar booger. I thought sweet & spicy and added to my cart Honey Hog Hot BBQ Rub to try on chicken wings in 2023 as well.

I also grabbed a sweet Charcoal Long Sleeve Tee with a Carolina Blue Meat Church BBQ logo and a new Holy Trinity Hat for my next smoking session.

I even found a new Carolina Blue Meat Church BBQ logo sticker to add to the sticker collection. Can never go wrong with the Carolina Blue.

2022 Thanksgiving 11-24-22

Thanksgiving is the foodie’s dream holiday and every year, I just try to get a little better with the family recipes my Mema Harris handed down to me.

Thanksgiving always makes me think of Mema and it makes me proud to know I am still carrying on the traditions she loved so much. She loved the days of preparation, making everyone’s favorite dish, simply the joy of seeing your excitement for her glorious creations and her piece of mincemeat pie (I think of it now as her victory lap since she had it at the end when everyone was eating.) I still haven’t found my own victory lap but I will in time.

Man, I always wonder what it would be like to cook with her now and see her smile with pride at me. Damn. Enjoy the moments you had today. They will be the memories you hold onto tomorrow and beyond.

Raider Red Meats: The Present 11-22-22

I came home today to find a perishable box from Raider Red Meats on my porch and it just made me smile. My brother, Greg and his fiancé, Kami sent us a box of premium aged beef ribeye steaks, a link of jalapeño & cheese sausage and the seasoning sampler so we could try out Raider Red Meats.

We will fire up the Traeger and think of you both when we enjoy the awesome meats you have sent us.
