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.

A Youngster Has His 50th!

Dr. Dave has to work on minimizing those wrinkles and reducing the bags under his eyes. Nothing can be done for the lack of hair. While celebrating Ski Sullivan's 50th birthday, Dr. Dave got told he was a good dad for raising such a fine son as Ski Sullivan. This would be a hellava compliment if I were Ski's dad, but I AM his (not that much) older brother!

That said (and wellness plan in progress), the party was a smashing success. I am still dreaming of the blue cheese wrapped steak slices that Saucy Joe conceived. The concept was an appetizer bar. Cocktails, appetizers and converted main courses which were served as appetizers. Man! I ate like a king!

Dr. Dave brought BBQ'd pork butt and brisket for late night meals. These were consumed as needed. I smoked until the meat temperature heated to 160 degrees F, and then I wrapped them in aluminum foil and froze the pork butt and the brisket. These transported in a cooler from Iowa to Texas, and then were heated in the oven to feed the hungry guests.

All in all, a lovely time! I'd travel 900 miles for a party any time.

Saucy Joe! Post your recipes!

Dr. Dave

What a delicious time!
I received several really nice bottles of wine to go with all the great food and friendship. All the bottles have been sitting in the cellar for a week now and I've been getting more thirsty as the days pass.
Tonight we'll uncork one and report on the rest as well. What fun, and I feel ever so fortunate to have such choice family and friends!
