Thankful and Grateful This AM

Each month we give away two sets of GrillGrate to our fans on Facebook and one to our customers and registered subscribers.   I just finished up counting down Facebook fans to #187 and landed on Lauren K!  A sorority sister of my daughters at UGA.  We all grilled together at their graduation!  It was a little easier picking out # 765 from our subscriber list!  Frank S- you'll be hearing from me!

It was fun counting through our Facebook fans and customer lists, I'm grateful and thankful to have them.  Its going be a grrrrrrate day!

Two winners every month and one lucky winner wins a Big Green Egg in December!

Sharing a Little BBQ Love!

We've been thinking how to 'inspire' more feedback, recipes and photos from GrillGrate customers and we decided that we just needed to share a little love--  Peace, Love and Barbecue that is!  So we bought a bunch of Peace Love and Barbecue books, shirts and ball caps from our friends at 17th Street Barbecue to give to customers who share their Grate Recipes, photos and stories with us.  Post them on our Facebook Fan page, email me your pics or even use our website recipe submittal tool.  We're anxious to share your stories of Grate Q and a little Peace Love and Barbecue too!  GrillGrate, Eat Well!  Peace.

Peace Love and Barbecue is a trademark of 17th Street Barbecue

Another Park Another Sunday!

A favorite Doobie Brothers song.  Got me thinking about another 'low and slow' Sunday coming up tomorrow.  Just hung up the phone with Tommy Boy to confirm the details:
  • Feeding 12-14 (the usual range)
  • 3 Racks of Ribs
  • 2 Spatchcock Chickens
  • Sides courtesy of the ladies
Eating 5:30ish, Start time 11:30ish to prep the ribs.  A 4-5 beer grilling for sure!  (Tommy Boy sprung for another keg of Stella which makes it much easier to lose count)

This video was from a low and slow Sunday a couple of weeks ago:
  • Feed 12-14 (detect a pattern) 
  • 1 Butt (pork shoulder actually)
  • Sausages soaked and bathed in beer
  • Cuban corn recipe (from Travel & Leisure)

GrillGrate, Eat Well!
