Follies: Barbeque That Goes Where You Go, All Day Long

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

In a world full of phony commodities, including fake car passengers (beat the HOV lane), impostor jeans (eat anything, they’ll fit), sham camisoles (cleavage control, dontcha know), and even fictionalized basketball player names (Whirled Peas??), it’s nice to know that Real Products for Real Men […]

Smoky Heaven in Round Rock: Johnny T’s BBQ

This entry is part of a series, Restaurants»

I recently found a real gem of a joint in Round Rock. I’d been by it maybe 30 times this year already, and I’ve known it was there for some time. I’ve eaten at the Sonic next door, had my car washed down the block, and […]

Ribfest Today! Y’all Come On By

That big pile of cars you see out front? Ribfest arrivals. (That’s me collecting exorbitant parking fees.)

The milling crowd, hoping for a whiff of the smoke from the pit? That’s Clan and friends, who can hardly contain themselves. (No news there.)

That sound like low-level fireworks going off in the background? That’s not fireworks, that’s […]

Killer Ribs, or Jitterbug's Secret Recipe Has Finally Met Its Match

Yesterday’s massive pigout light repast from the grill had me a bit sated at the time, but as dinner loomed on the horizon today I was hungry for more from the grill. (Loomed on the Horizon = It was after breakfast sometime, and I had to come up with an idea.) Two teenaged boys […]

The Bachelor Brigade Does Chicken (and More)

After a long week sweating over a hot research project, I was ready to kill and grill something. Deric and Kai had spent the day moving dead trees and burning them, so they had mostly gotten their Real Man requirements done. Especially the burning something dead. However, their fire wasn’t really suited for cooking; […]

Here Comes Alex! Better Get Some Grilling Done This Week...

Tropical Storm Alex, the first of the 2010 Atlantic season, is churning its way across the Yucatan Peninsula today. Everybody knows what that means, right? Yep, you got it in one: Time to Grill!

Texans need excuses to grill, you see. And impending wind and rain sounds like a good enough excuse to me! I’m […]

Better Roast Chicken, the Real Man Way: Cinnamon Curry Beer-Can Chicken

Who doesn’t like roast chicken? It’s a favorite, naturally. And since the invention of Beer-Can Chicken, even Real Men have enjoyed their roasted bird, because it involves drinking beer, setting fires, scorching animals and eating with their fingers. (If it also had something to to with nubile wenches of negotiable affection, said Real Men would […]

May is Barbeque and Grilling Month, so Fire'em Up!

It’s the month that all Real Men suffer through winter for; the month when we get to set fire to things AND play with our food at the same time! We get to explore our inner Cave Man while experimenting with flavors of all sorts: Sweet, tart, salty, vinegary, tongue-scorching and more.

Oh, we tell […]
