    Myron Mixon’s new book!

    Just got delivery of Myron Mixon’s new book Keto BBQ. Just started perusing. Will start a read of it in the next day or two. It is available digital & soft-cover. The interesting thing that caught my early attention is that he lost 100#. There was a life style change, but as he put it, it had to include BBQ. He was not going to stop eatin Q. As I already knew, eatin meat is & can be healthy. It should be an interesting read & yup, there are recipes.

    100# w/ Keto bbq, nice, but wonder how healthy Keto is in the long term.

    Thank for tip

      I did the keto diet for a while and did drop a lot of weight. I have since switched to just a low carb lifestyle (I'm diabetic) and am keeping the weight off. Much easier to stick to than a strict keto diet.

        Ditto on the diabetes; I lost the weight i needed to shed with keto, and now have migrated to a (very) low carb regimen. No metformin for well over a year.

      I gave my family a strong hint that Myron's book would be great for Father's Day. I'm diabetic, and I lost about 60# when I got serious about my lifestyle changes (diet, exercise, sleep, etc). BBQ has been a welcome part of that. I have my usual things that I grill/smoke, but having a nice book to reference would be awesome.

        I am diabetic also. I was able to kick the insulin & metformin. I have to watch it like a Hawk, but it sure beats controlling one’s life with a needle.

        Absolutely! Congratulations on that. I'm not using insulin, but was able to stop metformin about 6 months ago. Now I just have to be a good boy.

      I am not on keto myself & am not advocating keto, although there is merit to it. I am interested in a healthy diet. I would think that there is some very good tidbits for health in his book. He did speak of life style change, but I will find out as I read. The eye catcher is, most uninformed critics view bbq & grillin as unhealthy, which I know to be grossly untrue. Better health through Amazing Wibs, yup!


        In his book he says, " when I started my diet plan on August 18, 2018, I weighed 339 lbs and had a 46-inch waist. After nine months on the diet, I was down to 235 pounds, with a 36-inch waist. And I have kept it like that ever since."

        He says he is just over 6 feet tall.

        He also says he has added routine exercise to his regimen which he couldn't do before he lost the 100 lbs.

        The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

        The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

        Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
