We love to seize the opportunity to celebrate each and every day - after all, the daily grind can be, well, a grind. We're learning that there are many holidays out there that may not have reached "Hallmark" calendar status, but they still count and deserve to be recognized. Preferably with wine. With that being said, we bring to you this very special day (cue "The More You Know" theme song).
No matter that half the country has had flurries of snow or is soggy from rain by now, today is 'The Great American Smoke Out'! You know what that means. Get your grill out from under its cover, pick up some Steak, Chicken, and/or ribs and grab a copy of Ray Lampe's Dr. BBQ's Big-Time Barbecue Cookbook ($16) for inspiration! Reviewers raved over the Backyard Championship Ribs and BBQ pork sandwiches. We love the techniques, tips, and humor that come packed between recipes. And, come on, who doesn't want to try a recipe called Dirty Dick's Cajun Ribeye Roast?? Anyone? Anyone?
