The Shady Porch: BBQ Cookouts Say Summertime!


BBQ Cookouts Say Summertime!

Grilled BBQ Chicken @chicken #grilled #BBQ
We've been saying it's summer since school let out but it's official now...this is SUMMER...a delightful time of cookouts, fireworks, fairs and parades. This time of year, I start scouring the cookbooks and blogs for new recipes. I love to surprise (or's a fine line!) my family with new menus! This summer we've added a smoker to our arsenal of 'Make 'em Say Wow' utensils. Whether it's chicken, pork or beef, if smoked properly, you will say Wow, when you've tasted it!

Last summer we took a trip to Louisville and tried a sampler platter at No bone throwin' in the aisles...Famous Dave's. The smoked Texas beef brisket with a little BBQ is the reason we own a smoker today. If you get a chance you should go see why Dave's so Famous (just my opinion...I received no compensation for this).

Besides firing up the smoker this weekend, there is a Lemonade Bundt cake I want to try soon!
