Food, Wine & Just Good Living With SaucyJoe

It started with a love of food, wine & fun and blossomed into a maddening pursuit of the best recipes, techniques, grills, smokers, wines, crafted beers, rubs, marinades and sauces... We do more than play with our meat though -- we review and discuss all things cooking, drinking, reading, laughing and living at SaucyJoe's.

More Goodies for Saucy Shoppers

Well, we couldn't resist bringing in a few more gift goodies we found while doing some of our own shopping. After we orderd a couple gross of Saucy Joes aprons from our Cafe Press shop (see blatant plug) we looked around for truly unique and off-the-beaten-path stuff.

Lo and behold, we found several really cool items at a store called Uncommon Goods. And not only did we browse, we bought, and then called to chat them up. Customer service was heavenly, and while items do go in and out of stock frequently, they make certain you get a heads-up when inventory is running on the slim side. To give you a quick overview of some of our favorites while saving time, we took the liberty of lifting their ad copy for this review -- pretty well written and helpful to boot.

Here are our latest finds:

In The Hot Seat

One day, Mark and Elan Falvai were going through the nightly routine of washing iconiconpots and pans when they put one down to dry and instantly saw in their heads what you see before you now - the perfect kitchen stool. It took them over a year to find the perfect pot for their creation, with just the right dimensions for a comfortable and stylish seat. Now that they have, though, this "in the hot seat" stool is ready for your kitchen - and ready to act as the perfect seat.
