EAT Barbecue: Championship BBQ Rib Recipe

Posted by Jason on May 29, 2013

EAT BarbecueEver since the EAT Barbecue sauces and rubs made their way into our warehouse last week, I’ve been anxious to give them a test run. Their arrival just happened to coincide with Memorial Day weekend, which also happened to be a rare off-weekend for our competition barbecue team, Burnt Finger BBQ. Since I’m always looking for reasons to fire up the smoker, we decided to use the long weekend to put the EAT Barbecue products to use and see how they perform first-hand.

The EAT Barbecue sauces and rubs are the product of Rod Gray, pitmaster for the Pellet Envy competition barbecue team. The team is comprised of Rod and his wife Sherri. The duo began competing in 2001, and since that time have managed to rack up an astronomical 50+ Grand Championships. Pellet Envy has spent 10 straight years as a nationally ranked barbecue team, was the KCBS national Team of the Year in 2009 and runner-up Team of the Year in 2010, and has been named the best cook in the country for pork ribs and beef brisket. That’s a pretty substantial resume, and the release of their new EAT Barbecue products has only strengthened it. Essentially they have bottled Pellet Envy’s championship recipes, as these are the exact BBQ rubs and BBQ sauces they use on the competition circuit week-in and week-out.

Response to Huffington Post’s Healthy BBQ Eating Tips

Posted by Jason on May 24, 2013

The Huffington PostThis morning I was sent an article from Huffington Post entitled “5 Tips For Eating Healthfully At A Cookout”. Simply reading the title made me want to report the sender to my ISP for violating spamming regulations, but for some reason I felt compelled to click on the link to see what kind of shenanigans the folks over at Huff Post were spewing. What I found was a list of ridiculousness that was more absurd than anything I could have ever imagined. Somehow they managed to suck the heart and soul out of America’s only true cuisine just before the weekend we pay homage to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. And as such, I feel compelled to respond from the perspective of an overindulgent meatatarian who embraces and celebrates the barbecue lifestyle.

Opening Day Tailgating With Bacon Explosion

Posted by Jason on April 12, 2010

Every so often we like to take a day off work and relax with friends and family. This time around we headed out to Kauffman Stadium to celebrate Opening Day with the Kansas City Royals. In true BBQ Addicts style, we loaded up the Weber Kettle for some recreational pre-game Bacon Explosion tailgating in the parking lot. As we were sitting around the grill sipping on some Iron City Brew, an anchorman from a local news station caught a whiff of sizzling bacon in the air and wandered over with his camera man to investigate.
