Hey, who doesn’t like free things? So when CSN Stores offered me a one-time-use $60 gift certificate as a giveaway to my readers, I said yes. I know my witty posts and sub par pictures are reward enough but one of you will be able to spend $60 at one of the 200 online stores. There’s a lot to choose from: cookware, houseware, dining room sets, shoes, fitness stuff and a bunch of other things. So how do you win?
Since I’ve been BBQ’ing a lot lately, I want to hear about the best BBQ you’ve ever had or made. Just comment to this post and make sure you include a valid email so CSN Stores can send your prize to you. You have until Tuesday, August 17, 6:00 pm PDT to post a comment here. A winner will be picked at random. The picking method is TBD but will most likely involve the Mister and possibly one of the dogs. Since CSN Stores can only ship to U.S. and Canada, only U.S. and Canadian readers can qualify. Sorry to my international peeps.
Speaking of BBQ, I did a low and slow smoke of baby back ribs and a couple of pork butts this past week. I forgot to take pictures of the ribs since family was over but we had some really good eats. I’ve learned that some rubs and cookers will the meat come out looking like a meteorite. I think I’ve heard the term associated with Texas brisket. Although it looks very dark and burnt, it isn’t. Just take a look at mine below. The picture actually makes it look much darker than it really was. Just some of my sub par photo taking skills at work.
But when it’s pulled apart, this is what you get. Ahhhh, hog heaven!
The in-laws didn’t speak for the first 3-4 minutes as they chowed down their first “CAB” pulled pork sandwich. Who says there isn’t good BBQ in San Diego? Haha! MIL said she’s coming to me from now on for pulled pork. Luckily I smoked several pork butts and ribs to share with family and friends. The only bad thing that happened during my last smoke is that my digital thermometer crapped out on me. Luckily I had a backup thermometer but guess I’ll be shopping for a new one soon.
Hope everyone’s week is going well and good luck on the contest!
