Pulled Pork

Yummy!!  One of my favorite party meals is pulled pork. 

Recipe to follow. However, the long and short is:

Inject with salt, the types of peppers and apple cider. Typical BBQ rub of salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, dry mustard. 

Put the shoulder on my Weber at 220degrees with kingsford charcoal, hickory and apple. 

I keep temp consistent with my thermoworks smoke until I hit an internal temp of at least 190. Than shredding time. 

Sorry, no finished product today. Guests were eating while I was shredding. 

RTIC Cooler

We are in the age of coolers. Inovation around coolers has caused a flurry of high tech, very much over priced, coolers. 

But then came RTIC Coolers.  Being person than enjoys hunting, fishing and BBQ, there is nothing more disrespectful to the animal than allowing the harvest to spoil. 

will RTIC Coolers is the solution for me. Not only does the cooler hold ice for 10+ days, they are sized perfect and a better price than their competitors. 

Go pick up an RTIC COOLER and cup while you are at it…you will not be disappointed.

Thank You

Thank you to all those amazing women and men that had and are protecting our values and freedom. 

Weekend of BBQ

Memorial Day weekend, I like to sit out back and Q some big cuts of meat while shooting archery with the kids. This weekend I am going to start with some pulled pork. 

Looking forward to using my new Smoke from Thermoworks

Standby for some awesome pics tomorrow. 

Enjoy your Family, Friends and the Outdoors!  Remember, if it weren’t for our service women and men we would not have the freedom we have today.

Failure is an option 

You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.

Live your dream

Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.

Stand Strong

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.

Challenge yourself 

You don’t have to be a fantastic hero to do certain things to compete. You can be just an ordinary chap, sufficiently motivated to reach challenging goals.

Grab the Bull by the Horn

Life gives us choices…you either grab on with both hands and just go for it, or you sit on the sidelines.
