Waiting on the Rain

Northern California got pounded by a storm today. Here in the San Diego area we are supposed to get a small storm with just a little rain tonight, and the big daddy hitting Saturday AM and going all day. I've heard a wide range of rain amount forecasts. Supposedly we could expect up to 5 inches in one day here in Escondido. We can certain use the water in the region - but that's a lot for a single day - especially after the wildfires in October.

But, more to the point of this post. I'm sitting here on the porch in front of the grill with a pretty big chunk of rib eye cooking away. Tossed a small piece of Oak on the grill just for a little smoke. But we tend to like this big ole steaks with a nice salt coating, let to sit for about 20 monutes - then grilled up. Yum. The salt is just right on these bigger cuts. Melts in your mouth.

No rain yet. I'll be headed in soon to feed the wife and I. Then it's waiting time on the rain. I'm sure if this rain comes as expected we are going to loose the driveway again. Fun stuff...

Well, that was tasty! Too small, but very tender and good. Still no rain...

You think you can "Q"?

If you like to travel, or just want to come to a really fun BBQ festival, here is the information on the Tri-State BBQ Festival here in Dothan, AL.

There is over $10,000.00 in prize money, and it is both a qualifier for the Jack Daniel's Invitational and the Triple Crown cook-off, plus it's a lot of fun and raises money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Please take a second to check it out at

Thanks, and Happy Smokin'! (PS_ If you don't want to compete, we still have a few spaces for vendors left!)
