Grilled Chicken Recipes: The Battle Of Sweet And Spicy

Posted by Aaron on July 23, 2009

Recently Jason and I started doing a webcast for Sun Publications, aptly name “The BBQ Addicts Show“. I know, totally creative but I guess it gets the point across. I voted for “The BBQ Addicts Act Like Monkeys And Then Cook Show” but no one would agree with me. Here is a press release from Sun about the show for some additional info.

The show is going to be geared for beginners in the first few shows, then we’ll get into some more advance techniques including injections, making your own rubs and barbecue sauces, maybe even cooking the Bacon Explosion!

Restaurant Review: 4 Legs Up BBQ

Posted by Jason on June 25, 2009

4 Legs Up BBQRecently I had the pleasure of passing through The Great Plains on the way out to Western Kansas for a weekend of family fun. As with any road trip, I was immediately on the lookout for a local barbecue joint to sample the regional tastes. After passing through countless miles of waving wheat, a quick jaunt through a wind farm and battling a slowly increasing aroma of cow manure, we finally returned to the likes of civilization…Great Bend, KS. Little did I know that this small town is actually home to the 2008 Grand Champions of the Jack Daniels Invitational!!!

Book Review: Big Bob Gibson’s BBQ Book

Posted by Jason on May 14, 2009

Big Bob Gibson's BBQ BookFor those of us that collect barbecue books, the past week has been one for the record books. First we have Paul Kirk’s and Ardie Davis’ new publication, of which BBQ Addicts offered an exclusive sneak peek months ago, and now we’ve got Chis Lilly releasing Big Bob Gibson’s BBQ Book: Recipes and Secrets from a Legendary Barbecue Joint.  For those of you not familiar with Mr. Lilly, he’s the executive chef at the legendary Big Bob Gibson Bar-B-Q restaurants in Decatur, AL and one of the most decorated competition cooks to ever step foot on the circuit.  He’s won the World Championship BBQ Cook-Off 10 out of 11 years alongside 6 world titles at Memphis in May, and now he’s sharing the secret family recipes that made it all possible.

Chris starts off the book with a brief recap of how the Big Bob Gibson restaurants were born, and then quickly moves into the tips and tricks of mastering the art of low and slow cooking. He covers the basics of turning just about any style grill into an indirect cooker, so you can be sure to use his recipes on the equipment you already own.

History Of Kansas City Barbecue

Posted by Aaron on March 30, 2009

Kansas City BBQHere is a great video from a couple years ago that has some brief history on Arthur Bryant’s, Gates and barbecue here in Kansas City. Thanks to @bbqsociety for pointing it out on twitter today! My favorite quote (no offense North Carolina): “Kansas City’s metro area now has more barbecue restaurants per capita than any city in the United States.” Of course we have our favorites (yes, it really is in a gas station) but there are many to choose from! I think I’ll head to Hayward’s today, it’s one block from my office and has the Triple Stack (and if you order it, be very hungry)!
