BBQ is a food, not an appliance.

Sorry, you're just wrong.

Notice that barbecue can be a noun, and refer to the device used.

That looks delicious! Something about going primitive with that ditch and firewood that appeals to man's heart :).

It really is fun cooking this way. No thermometer, no dampers to control heat, no premade charcoal. Just fire and your own judgement.
Civil War reenactment is LARPing for people with no imagination.

I'm not wrong. Someone just made a mistake and let some Yankee edit the dictionary again.

You're not wrong.  Clearly somebody who's never had bbq was editing.


Nice work on the ribs.   The best part of the pics is the fact that there is still a mound of dirt next to the hole.  


Honey, I'm digging a hole.  When I get the hole dug, I'm gonna cook dead pig.  Then I'm gonna eat said pig.  When I get done eating, maybe I'll move the mound of dirt. That's a definite maybe.

Has the crick ever flooded your property/house?

I watched the crick in my backyard in KY go from 15 feet wide to about 150 feet wide in about three hours a couple times, fortunately my lot is at the top of the hill so no danger to me but the subdivisions behind me puckered up a couple times.

Just started getting serious about cooking hooved animals last weekend.

It was a big jump for me because if have a texture issue with raw meat, don't like to touch it.

I decided on a teriyaki theme and made some veggie stuffed teriyaki burgers, which meant working in the ingredients by hand.

I can handle the texture now no big deal.

Bought a smoker box for the grill, added cherry chips for this meal, good stuff.

Also made a teriyaki marinade for the asparagus, grilled them, it was bomb digity.

Was a hit with the wife!

In So Cal we have a company called Baileys that makes marinated tri-tips, perfect for the old me, I did not have to touch them. I would just cut the bag and let it hit the grill, or some times I wrap in foil the dump on the grill right at the end.

The new me will probably try my own marinade/rub for the next tri-tip.

What part of KY were you from?  I assume near Lexington or Lousiville since you said "back yard".  My Dad's side is from Pikeville. (actually Virgie, but we say Pikeville because that's the closest almost civilized place)

Did they forcefully move you out of KY?  Did they ask you to leave nicely? or did you just leave on your own?

Hasbeen,

Oldham County, Crestwood 20 miles outside Louisville in the country 1.5 acres 5k sqft house. It was beautiful.

Born and raised here in So Cal, moved there for 4 years. Terrible economy there, horrible. Sold the house and moved back to So Cal.

When I was on my property I was in heaven, trying to make a living for me and the wife was another story.

Did a stint with a Home Theater/Automation company there, did not realize it was on its way out at the time. Did learn a lot though in the time I was there about Interior designers/Contractors/Architects and the like!

I am looking for a High End shop here in So Cal to work for, I have so much to give, looking for somebody that still has the passion, to give it to.

So on one hand I left willingly, on the other was escorted out by the economy!

The wife is a city girl, loves to shop, HATES the snow.

To say the very least they do things very differently back there, not that its bad, just very different.

My god the thunderstorms were FREEKIN AWESOME though, the tornadoes sucked big sack!

No shit.  It's only been bad since before the civil war though.  It should get better any time.

You're preaching to the choir.  My PaPaw was a Freewill Baptist Minister.  I used to go to Ky for the summers as a kid. I'd stay all summer until school was back. My dad moved to MI to work for Ford because he didn't want any part of the coal mines.  Turns out he didn't want any part of Ford either and started doing alarms.  

Things I realized staying with my grandparents in Ky for the summers.   

1.  Not everyone goes to the grocery store.  My grandparents only went to a general store for flour, sugar, etc.  They killed or harvested everything they ate.  They ate fried food everyday and lived to 93 and 96.

2.  I make an excellent retriever.  My PaPaw would sit on a rocking chair on the front porch of his house and shoot squirrels wit a .22 pistol.  I don't know if I ever saw him miss anything he shot at.  After he'd knock it out of the tree, he'd send me across the creek to get it and take it into my mamaw to cook for supper.   Needless to say, I've eaten a lot of fried squirrel.

3.  Not everyone drives.  My grandparents never drove a car.   That is until my uncle married a girl who's daddy owne a Ford dealership.  So my grandparents bought a ford escort from him.  They promptly parked it under a lean to, where it sat until the day they died.  

4.  Don't cut the grass during sunny days.  Rattle snakes might not kill you, but copperheads will. 

5. A shovel is an excellent tool to kill a snake.

6. Plowing a garden with a shetland pony and a plow sucks in so many different ways it's impossible to count them all.

7.  Strip mining sucks.  The dynamite literally breaks the windows in the houses at the bottom of the hill.

8.  Never trade a good horse for a motor vehicle.

9.  When they refer to it as the "Big Hill"....  it is.

10.  People from the holler,  aren't coming out of the holler. For nothing or nobody. My dad was the second oldest of 8 children.  All of which are still alive except my dad.  5 of his brothers and sisters didn't come to his funeral, because as my brother said. "They ain't never leavin' Kentucky".  



As I get older, I miss it more and more.

That crick is the New River. Thanks to Bill Clinton designating the river an "American heritage river" nothing permanent can be located on he pictured property. It's a weekend spot with a couple camper hookups with septic and well. My family has a couple campers setup that stay there. Thank God someone figured out that slide out option on RV's. There have been a few times that the water was almost to the door.

I've got a good case of OCD myself. Sometimes I have the same problem and have to push through when prepping the meat. You might try surfical gloves. I've been watching a lot of episodes of PitMasters and have noticed that many competitors wear latex gloves when handling the raw meat.

If your in the "Good Ole Boys Club" your in, if your not, you most definitely are NOT!

Learnt that the hard way, they do not like people from other states, they may act like it but they don't.

Hard place to get to the top if you are not from there.

My wife looked for two years for a job and when they found out she was from Cali, she was told straight up several times, "We got people that have lived here their whole lives who need these jobs.

So when she found this trabajo in Cali that was the straw that did the gig!

Also things I learned while I lived there, and they talked about this crap on the radio and TV!

1. The most obese state
2. The most toothless state (some truth to the stereotypes)
3. The most depressed state

And god love them all, some of the most f'd up hair cuts I have ever seen. Business up front party in the back.

The 80's are alive and well!

On the flip side there is some wealth there but that crowd is very very small and they all know each other. One wrong move and your business is done if you depend on that small crowd for income.

I made asparagus wrapped in bacon and swordfish. On the grill
Ed will be known as the Tiger Woods of the integration business, followed closely with the renaming of his company to "Hotties A/V". The tag line will be "We like big racks and tight holes"...

 Ooh.  How is swordfish on the grill?  Is that something you make often?  How do you cook it?
