The Food Lab: How To Make The Best Fajitas

Ive always wanted to be able to make "restaurant style" fajitas for my wife and I, and the story of the strategic path of the server with a steaming plate of them made me LOL.

Hands down one of my favorite Food Labs, great work Kenji!

What ever happened to Drinking the Bottom Shelf?

Man, didnt know he was let go, that sucks.

Father's Day Giveaway: Win a KettlePizza Pro 22 Kit

Put a frozen pizza (first mistake) in the oven for us kids out in the pool, came out to check on us (second mistake) and 90 minutes later we came into a smoke filled house that smelled like scorched Red Baron for about 2 weeks.

Father's Day Giveaway: Win a Baking Steel!

Domino's Thin crust with Pepperoni and Bacon, mainly because thats the only Pizza he will eat.

AHT Giveaway: Case of Pat LaFrieda Burgers

Too much Tomato making the bun soggy, or just a soggy bun in general.

AHT Giveaway: Case of Pat LaFrieda Burgers

From Terry's Turf Club in Cincinnati, they have so many different combinations of sauces that it’s very hard to pick a favorite, but I would have to say the Burgundy Wine Sauce goes very well on one of the massive burgers. Also make sure and get the Truffle Oil on your Fries, it is absolutely delicious.

Drinking the Bottom Shelf: Old Fitzgerald Bourbon

Also, to the author: I doubt you can get the Bottled in Bond 100 Proof or the 1849 Label of Fitz up North but they are both absolutely great stuff, and worth the few extra dollars over stock flavor Fitz.

Drinking the Bottom Shelf: Old Fitzgerald Bourbon

Glad to see yall reviewing this one, Fitz is my regular drinking bourbon when I don't want to splurge on Makers, Larceny or Weller 12 yr. I absolutely love it, and I and several of my friends have also commented on how well it favors Makers.

Fitz is great stuff and a bargain at the price point, $8.50 for a fifth in the Lexington area.

The Dead Texan at Swagger... Never got to try it while I was living in KC

Beef Brisket on the smoker

Seriously Delicious Holiday Giveaway: The Baking Steel

My wife prefers a basic Margherita pizza. I love loading mine with crumbled chorizo, some pan fried diced pancetta, prosciutto, red onion, mozzarella, and some lightly sauteed red onions.

AHT Giveaway: Case of Pat LaFrieda Burgers

Cookout for the entire extended family, and grill them to perfection. Love the Meat Men show, its been a great program so far.

Book Corner: 6 Great Barbecue and Grilling Books

"Paul Kirk's Championship Barbecue" is an outstanding book I reference regularly as it has some great recipe and time tested tips.

Also I really enjoy Chris Lilly's "big Bob Gibson's BBQ Book" its a great looking book with some unique spins on BBQ.

Myron Mixon's new book was a good one, with some unique recipes but was very short.

Davis & Kirk's "America's best BBQ" is a cool book because it is actual recipes (or as close as they can get) from great BBQ joints across the country. Having lived all over the country, I really enjoy this book.

The Serious Eats Barbecue Style Guide

I lived for several years in Kansas City before recently moving back to my native Kentucky. I never realized how much I took world class BBQ joints nearly everywhere for granted while I was there.

The Secret Ingredient (Black Pepper): Steak au Poivre with Truffle Microgreen Salad

Steak Au Poivre is quite possibly my favorite steak preparation.

Cook the Book: 'The Just Bento Cookbook'

Brown Rice, Chicken Stir Fry, Cucumber Slices and Carrot sticks

If salt/pepper were a given, what would be your one other spice?

Garlic or Chili Flakes

WHERE THE HELL DID _ _ _ _ _ _ _ GO?!

1) New York Seltzer soft drink
2) Bacon Western Club at Arby's
3) Beeman's Chewing Gum
4) Wiedemann Beer
5) Gatorade Chewing Gum

Favorite Game Day Fare?

^^^ For the Super Bowl that is

Favorite Game Day Fare?

I will be smoking 2 boston butts for pulled pork sandwiches, with home made coleslaw, and grilling about 6 dozen buffalo wings with homemade sauce. We shouldnt be lacking in the food or Beer department.


As the Colts arent in it anymore, And the SEC won their 5th straight: Im rooting for whoever is playing against the Patriots.

Eat for Eight Bucks: Easy Slow-Cooker Pork Tacos with Red Cabbage Crunch and Avocado

I don't think the price is that far off at all. I can usually catch whole bone-in prok butt around here on sale for anywhere from $0.99 - $1.29/lb... Matter of fact I bought several when they were $0.99/lb. 2 weeks ago at my local Kroger in preparation for a big Superbowl BBQ.

Awesome Pizza in Kentucky?

I would also like to recommend Pazzo's and Joe B's in Lexington, Both are tough to beat.

Also Sutton's on the corner of Richmond Rd. and Man-O-War in Lexington is worth a mention.

A First Look at the 2010 Crop of American Whiskies

Another outstanding one was this years release of the W.L. Weller 12 y/o. It is definitely a standout in the Wheated Bourbon category. Without a doubt some of the best bourbon Ive had lately. Glad I live in the heart of the Bluegrass so that some of this stuff is actually obtainable.

Quiz: How Much Do You Know About Barbecue?

Very good quiz... 8/10
