    Surviving the Corona Virus - BBQ Edition

    My church has a facebook group dedicated to keeping things upbeat and fun during the Corona Virus Quarantine. Since we are in Louisiana, we have a lot going on around us and are not leaving our houses for the most part, so this is how we get to keep from going completely insane (although some may argue that point). The basics of the group is that a person performs a karaoke or lip-sync of a song that has been voted on for them and uploads it to the page. upon completion, they are to call out the next victim, umm, participant. I was selected to perform Islands In The Stream. I really hate karaoke and lip-sync, and was planning to spend my day cooking a pork butt, so we made a video of that instead.

    Here is a link so you can maybe get a laugh or a smile apart from the tragedy that we are all dealing with at this time.

    (Please note that I am not making light of the situation and am praying daily for the families affected by sickness, death, and those that are working selflessly to save those affected by this awful virus.)

        That was excellent!!! Send that track to some producer - get it down on vinyl. Wait, no vinyl anymore. Dangit.

          It’s making a comeback! Can’t wait until my car’s dashboard is big enough to insert an album. I will also need really good shocks.

                            If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear


                            The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

                            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.

                            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


                            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                            The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


                            The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                            We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5" x 29.5" footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

                            Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


                            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker


                            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                            Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


                            This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp's dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin'.
