    Reverse sear Rack of Lamb on the MAK 2

    My brother Mike got me inspired to do a ROL yesterday. I didn't have the time to marinate one like I usually do so I bought a rosemary/garlic preseasoned frozen rack at Trader Joes. I cut open the bag and added some olive oil and white wine and let set for about an hour before putting it on the...

    Congrats to BP for hitting the bullseye in brisket today at Lake Havasu!

    Aside from coming about a half point shy of earning another 700 pin in winning Reserve Grand Champion at Lake Havasu today, BP hit a perfect 180 score in brisket. To put that into perspective for those who don't compete, a 180 score is when all 6 judges at the table found BPS's brisket entry...

    The vein/tendon!

    I've been researching comp chicken trimming for months and have heard several competitors mention they either remove or cut the vein in a chicken thigh and I've seen one perform surgery on a thigh to completely remove a tendon. At first I thought this was crazy. As a judge I expect thighs to...

    Comp chicken practice

    Our chicken recipe was the lowest performer of our four comp meats in the 2013 season. I've been sacrificing many, many chicken thighs recently in the off season to come up with something that I hope will bring up our chicken scores. This last batch came out very good and I'm getting close to...
