Thank you to @French Fries for hosting last month's challenge. I had a lot of fun pushing myself to cook for you all.
This month we will focus on BBQ. Now, I know Barbecue is kind of a catch-all term and does not mean the same thing to everybody around the world and even in America we have certain groups calling BBQ one thing and the other a whole different definition.
That's why this is a BBQ and Grilling competition.
The time of the year is here now, for us on the northern hemisphere, to start firing up our grills and smokers and do some outdoor cooking!
What better way to start the season than with a great BBQ challenge?
I think BBQ and Grilling will make a great challenge for this forum because BBQ is a world of it's own in the cooking world.
In this challenge we do not have to focus on just the food or the end result, we can focus on technique and equipment used. There is so much technique in Barbecue and Grilling it would be great to showcase technique. A humble, simple pulled pork sandwich can have just as much technique involved as the french use in their cooking.
Equipment used being showcased will also help forum goers because there is so much custom stuff being made in the BBQ world it is a learning experience in itself to see.
BBQ is something I've taken a unique interest with lately. It will be fun for me to see all the cool ideas this month.
So, are you going camping this weekend and gonna catch some trout and grill it up? You having a party where you're going to cook your friends some steaks and burgers? You planning on smoking a brisket or a pork shoulder for 8 hours? Got a cool smoker rig you want to show us? Do you use a "Big Green Egg" to cook your pizzas? Got some "Hobo Dinners" you're going to throw in a fire while camping or dutch oven action? Are you so hardcore that you own a Tandoor or built a brick Argentine grill in your backyard? BBQ is so varied in technique and equipment it doesn't matter. Give us what you got!
