    Greetings from Central Oregon

    Central Oregon - 300+ days of sunshine each year. Or so says the local tourism booster. In any case, greetings from a wonderful partof the state. Long time reader; grilling and smoking with a trusty old weber kettle and a smokenator (thanks for that tip several years ago!) and a weber gas grill for quick and easy grilling during the week or whenever ....


    Hey Brad... nice to have you! Weber kettle and smokenator make BBQing happen right!

    I don't live far from you (relatively) I am in western Idaho.

          Greetings from Houston, Alaska. You live in a pretty nice area of the world. I spent many a happy day fishing in central Oregon. The same goes with chukar hunting, which are fantastic eating on the bbq, by the way.

            I've been known to pick up a guitar from time to time...lol...However my main instrument is drums. Anyway, Chukar is a type of partridge. Not a great deal of meat, but tasty. The main meat is breast meat(like our local Alaska Spruce Grouse), so direct heat broiling seems to work best. Just keep the heat under control, baste, and you'll be golden.The rest of the carcass is for stock. I have visited the assignment page, and will make any profile adjustments accordingly.
            Back to chukar. Like many wild birds, chukar is low in fat, so high temps are out. Moderate heat is the name of the game here. I use an oil-based wet rub. It was never the same twice, however it is the method that is important, not necessarily the spices.

          Greetings, Brad! Welcome to The Pit! Please check out our welcome package (aka home work for new members) here at this post! <------------ it's a link, click it.

          Thank you for the support! Look forward to more interaction with you in the near future.
