    Tri tip (pics)

    I grilled tri tip once before. I over cooked it and it was tough. I liked the idea that tri tip would give me the beefy flavor I craved but be something in between steak and brisket in terms of effort. I grabbed some left over brisket rub I had and tossed in a bit of cayenne. I haven't used...

    Ribs Gone Wrong!

    Okay, admittedly I'm new to smoking ribs. My first smoke was pretty dry and tough. My second smoke was nice and juicy. So today was my third smoke. We get two racks of ribs, one of them fairly large by Philippine standards. I'm going for Meathead Goldwyn's Pig Candy, so I follow his...

    Multi-Tasking the Weber

    I have a Weber 22.5 OTG grill that I am using for grilling and smoking, shortly I will be getting a Kettle Pizza insert to use it for a semi-wood fired pizza. My problem right now is the smoking side. I have a Smokenator 1000 insert which I like because it keeps direct heat off the meat. But...
