    What are some of your "finds" at the store? (spices, rubs, sauce, etc.)

    I'm always on the lookout for new things to try. Here's some I found at the Fort Myers Beach Walmart. When I saw they were on clearance I bought several of each. Then the other day they were marked normally. Oh well at least I'll never run out.

      I thought I came across a new store like that but it turned out they specialized in doing custom outdoor built-in grills with bars, countertops, etc. No real supplies there.

    For supermarket stuff my wife & I really like this marinade. Sometimes I just use it straight as a dry seasoning/rub, much better flavor potency especially for thick pieces like breasts. Awesome on grilled & smoked chicken pieces.

      Got some of that at my local Winco for ten cents a pack recently - 20 packs assorted flavors with this one included - I haven't tried this one yet, but I will!

      treesmacker great deal! I tried the Bourbon & Brown Sugar one and didn't like it at all, but I think the Lime and Garlic one was pretty good too, just it wasn't as good as what I hoped it would be if I remember correctly. Of all the ones I've tried this is the one that the wife and I ended up liking the best. I look forward to your thoughts too.

      I'd buy it for the great label alone. Then I'd tell hubby that Men's Health magazine says it's good for him. (Depending, I'm thinking, on what I put it on.) Good to know it's tasty.

    Marinating chicken today with Parrinade (named by Huskee after ABCBBQ Dave ). Always a hit. Can't often find Moore's Original Hickory marinade, so when I do, I score 3 or 4 bottles of it.

    I may not have this exactly as Dave does it, but here's how I roll with it:

    Parrinade for Chicken
    • Moore's Original (Hickory) Marinade
    • Kraft Zesty Italian dressing
    • Chicken pieces

    Mix the marinade and dressing half and half (equal parts). (May not need the whole bottles, depending on the amount of chicken.)
    Set some of the mixture aside to baste chicken pieces with while on the grill.
    Put chicken pieces in large Ziploc bag and pour in the remainder of the marinade. Marinate a minimum of 3 hours up to overnight, then remove the pieces.
    Grill and enjoy.

    Dave says he likes this on chicken breast cutlets or tenderloins. I use it with boneless skinless chicken thighs too.

    Always a hit with the family.

    Was turned on to this from a friend in Savannah. BBQ supply store carried it. I have since bought direct. When I do a Costco rib 3 pack I'll use a different rub on each rack. This wins taste test every time. Also great on chicken.

    Lawry's used to have a Tequila Lime Marinade that I really liked for chicken. It was discontinued for some reason, and the store brand knock-off stuff isn't the same. I'm going to have to figure out how to make it myself.

        the good one grill

        The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.
