...she said chicken. cool. i can work with that. as i am walking out the door, she comes up to me a gives me a kiss and then said in a stern voice, "only 2 racks of ribs, no more". she knows me to well.

Ha ha! I about fell out of my chair when I read that! Too funny (my wife has me pegged too! ;))!

ok, rip & rick. Tell me, how can you have pizza and chili and no FT? some things just pair well together (you know how hard this is in the backyard on a little cell phone without your glasses, really hard, taking me 15 minutes to type this one msg).

I think I'm about as far East as the New Belgium distributors go.. It used to be rare around here, but now even the gas stations (well, the ones in the nicer parts of town :cool:) carry it.

HaHa! We do have FT here in Nebraska, been known to buy them from time to time, (I even have a FT t-shirt, if the weather ever warms up, might have wife photo me at the smoker wearing it). As far as the pizza, I was drinking Jeff's Pale Ale (micro brew, has an airplane on the bottle, how can you go wrong with that?)....sorry, back in Jan/Feb I was including beer bottles in my pics, now (as Sparky predicted) with my belt needing loosening, I've been drinking more Coors light, didn't figure anyone wanted to see that!!

This week I relented and got some Jeff's and also Sawtooth Ale, another fave...will see what I can do if today's cook finds its way into the contest.

SOW Chicken meets Desert Gold

Slowly but surely some of the latest products are finding their way to my kitchen...time to put them to work!

Today's Stars:
IMG_2052sm.jpg


Started off with two spatchcocked chickens, the thighs were removed so they would fit into three one gallon bags. SOW BBQ Marinade was added, extraneous air was carefully purged, pressure set to one atmosphere, and then sealed for 4 hours. (yeah, a marinade express would be nice!)
IMG_2023sm.jpg


Hit with a dusting of BPS Desert Gold and then onto the grill at 250, hickory pellets.
IMG_2025sm.jpg


After 20 minutes, up to 325, @IT 150, up to 375 until IT 165.

While the chicken rested, Twice Baked potatoes and Asparagus were put on at 375. The asparagus was also marinaded in SOW BBQ Marinade. The potatoes had the usual plus bacon chunks.

Looking good!

The verdict? Andy and Kim have a real winner with SOW BBQ Marinade! BPS Desert Gold also lived up to it's advance billing. The chicken was awesome! The marinade flavor was great on the asparagus as well. A very tasty meal, thanks Kim, Andy, and BP!

Oh yeah, did I mention brownies had been baked too?
