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.

Big Bob Gibson's BBQ Book!

Hey BBQ fans! This is one very good book for smokers and grillers of all skill levels. Chris Lilly started at Big Bob Gibson's right out of college, and learned how to be a pitmaster at Big Bob's knee. He married into the family, and has been pitmaster for many years. Chris has won quite a lot of BBQ world championships. He shares tips and recipes in this book. The illustrations are clear, the recipes easy to understand.

One of the best sections of the book is how to set up various style charcoal smokers and grills for low and slow smoking. For instance, a round grill should have a ring of charcoal with a gap at some point. Light the charcoal on one side of the gap, and the charcoal will burn around the ring in a nice slow manner, assuring the proper heat for several hours. That's cool!

Last weekend, I made my hot chicken legs recipe, and I made up some of Big Bob Gibson's signature white BBQ sauce. The recipe looks something like this:

2 cups mayonnaise

1 cup white vinegar

1/2 cup apple juice

2 teaspoons horseradish (I put in more!)

1 teaspoon black pepper (I used white pepper for a slower burn)

1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Mix and dip the chicken in. The sauce was tart with some heat, and it went very well with my hot legs!

I highly recommend this book!
