Scoring Q and Drinking Brew By Blake Marcum “SWINE O’ MINE!” Inside my head were two thoughts. One, did he mean Sweet Swine O’ Mine? Two, did he just mess up reading out the name of the Grand Champion for the Memphis in May World Championship Barbeque Cooking Contest? I know I’m getting WAY ahead […]
I really love it when Vidalia onions come into season in the summertime. Their sweet, mellow flavor really compliments any recipe. I was super excited when Shuman Produce, a grower of Vidalia Onions, reached out to me and asked me to develop recipes for them. It is always fun to create recipes with one of […]

I can’t believe the 4th of July is almost here! While I grill almost every night anyway, for most people this is their biggest grilling holiday of the year! So get out of the burger and hotdog rut and try something new this year. Pork is at ridiculously low prices right now so it’s the […]
