Last Minute BBQ Gifts For Christmas

Posted by Aaron on December 16, 2008

BBQ Sauce of the Month ClubIt’s that time of the year again…the time where we don’t get to cook nearly as much as we want. However, that doesn’t mean we still can’t buy stuff. If you’re like me, you haven’t even started your Christmas shopping yet so you still have plenty of time to get that great BBQ gift for your favorite barbecue maniac (actually, you don’t have much time if you’re ordering online, but we like to get stuff after Christmas too).

1. BBQ Sauce of the Month Club – Trying out new BBQ sauce is one of our favorite things. You never know when you’re going to find a gem in the collection. I found several locations for you to grab this up (these are also available in different subscription lengths):

A Catering Story: The Tale Of 13 Turkeys

Posted by Jason on December 11, 2008

Burnt Finger BBQThanksgiving 2008 ushered in a new era for Burnt Finger BBQ. This year we offered up our outdoor cooking skills to friends and family and wound up smoking 13 turkeys for the holiday. And as any Good Samaritan would do, we also documented the entire process to share with the world!

After conducting some recon work on the area markets, we stumbled upon a local grocer who had just received their massive pre-Thanksgiving turkey shipment. Luckily, we were able to obtain 13 turkeys that were almost exactly 14 pounds each. Once home, the birds were immediately placed into coolers filled with cold water to slowly thaw out. (Note…when thawing in a cooler, make sure the temperature stays below 40 degrees so that the meat doesn’t spoil. Also be sure to change out the water daily.)
