The Final Great Blizzard of March 2013 was on it way last Friday so I had the TrashWife defrost some beef ribs in anticipation of a SNOW DAY and hopes of doing a review post for my new Maverick ET-732. I had planed on putting the Maverick through its paces and comparing it with my IQue 110 and calibrated $10 Turkey Fryer Thermometer installed on my UDS. The results were all 3 stayed within 4 degrees of each other for over 6 hours and there was not one signal drop from the remote on the Maverick! I will take that any day!
Blueberry BBQ concoction. Just as I was about to start my search, a Blue Angel (Mr. FedEx Man) braved the storm and dropped off a box from J.Dickey's on my porch!! To say I was shocked was an understatement since Viron had just shipped the package the afternoon before! The great BBQer in the sky was making His magic happen and he was helped by some kick ass customer service!
Big Green Mendo brought his Cleat by for a tasting as he "just happened to be in the neighborhood," during the blizzard! He so enjoyed the sauce that he stole the remaining half bottle and used it on brisket burnt ends during a practice session the next day. A container of said burnt ends made it to school the next Monday and proceeded to survive about 7 minutes before being totally and completely decimated by Savage High School Educators!
To a man, everyone commented on how flavorful the sauce was and inquired when we would be making more FREE BBQ for the staff slathered in the stuff! TYWBBQ is seriously kicking around the notion of using this sauce as our go-to base on our competition burnt ends. If it's good enough for Sloatsburg's Premiere Competition BBQ Team then you can bet your bottom dollar it is Okey Dokey for your pantry any day! Give it a look--you will not be disappointed!
LOVE, PEACE and SMOKE
