Miscellaneous Stuff

Smoky Mountain Carbonara
Last night we made Katherine's Smoky Mountain Cafe's Carbonara and it was as great as it sounded. If you haven't visited Katherine's food blog, get over there and check it out.

Big Green Egg
I picked up my new fire box (aka fire bowl) for my Big Green Egg today.

I just wanted to say again how phenomenal the customer service at Big Green Egg and their Knoxville distributor, Hearth and Patio, is. A few weeks ago, my fire box developed a crack. It was the easiest, most painless, and customer friendly warranty experience I have ever had. The Big Green Egg is a world class product backed by world class customer service.

If you are ever considering buying a high end grill, smoker, and convection oven, you definitely need to check out a Big Green Egg.

Ox Rotisserie
Sure the Ronco Rotisserie (set it and forget it) or a rotisserie attachment for your grill can handle some roasts or chickens. But what if you wanted to throw a whole Ox on the rotisserie?

I found this on There, I Fixed It. It's a hilarious site that is the handyman's version of ICanHasCheezeburger or People of Walmart.
I hope that all of you folks stuck in the snow are doing OK!


  1. I need new grill toys... an egg and an ox rotisserie are on the list

  2. I saw that carbonara on her blog and bookmarked it. Can't wait to make it. I've seen People of Walmart. It's halarious.

  3. The picture of that carbonara is mouth-watering!! That looks like a must make soon recipe :D

  4. So that is what a BGE firebox looks like, hmmm...

  5. Thanks for the intro to a new site! Also regarding the pic you asked about do a google search for Romaoff's. It is a famous pic as the woman are Sophia Loren and Jayne Masfield... GREG

  6. I saw the carbonara on her blog too - it is on my list. Your pasta looks great!

  7. Thanks for that site, I love those kind of places. I can get lost on the People of Walmart site for hours.

  8. Ohhh . . . I haven't made carbonara in a long time, it's one of my favorite pasta dishes. I will have to check out her blog- yum!

  9. Thank you for the shout out Chris and I'm glad you liked the Caronara.

    So glad you got your new firebox...can't wait to see what you have cooking.

    Off to get lost in the people of Walmart!

  10. I wish Brinkman was that sharp! I had fits trying to make them understand the part I needed, and when I offered to show them my modification that improved the unit's efficiency by at least 30%, and added another practical use feature- they told me to call Engineering!
