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.

An artist friend of mine recently bartered his painting for a leg of lamb and 5 steaks. I got to thinking that plenty of wine collectors would consider bartering a few choice bottles for artwork as well.
