Candied Jalapenos

Candied Jalapenos

Stopped by one of the local farmer’s markets here in Gainesville today and came across a guy selling home made candied jalapenos.  He had a sign out that talked about all the different foods they’re good on, probably 20 things or more, but BBQ was nowhere on his sign.  I tried a sample and they […]

Mike’s North Carolina Vinegar Sauce

My bro Mike gave me permission to post this vinegar sauce recipe of his.  We had it on some picnic pulled pork the other night and it was SUPER tasty.  Most of the vinegar style sauces I make (and probably most you make as well…) are pretty thin and runny.  That’s just the style of […]

Shane's Rib Shack Ribs

Shane’s Rib Shack

Stopped by Shane’s Rib Shack today while visiting family in Jacksonville.  I guess I’ve been living under a rock b/c I had never heard of them before.  Turns out, they’re a massive franchise primarily in the Southeast with stores in 14 states.  Generally speaking, if I stop by a BBQ spot I’ve never tried before, […]

Yummy sides to go along with a Christmas BBQ

Yesterday was my last day at work before the Christmas / New Year’s break and I wanted to share a couple recipes with you I stumbled across.  We had a potluck style lunch and a couple of folks came together to get our department head a recipe book called Southern Ground that is by Zack […]
