Just a reminder to all. Bobby Flay's new BBQ show starts tonight on the Food Network at 9PM.
It will be interesting to see how it works out. I believe he is going to Miami and Memphis on tonights shows.
Did anyone catch Al Rokers show and his attempt at winning the rib blue ribbon at the Memphis in May BBQ Competition?

I saw Roker's Smokers last night too. It was pretty entertaining. Too bad they finished 87th out of 107. Oh well, it looks like they had a lot of fun, and afterall that's what it's all about, besides I'm sure the competition in Memphis is nothing to snooze at, and Roker's team was pretty much doing competition BBQ for the first time.

I'm not a fan of Bobby "Mr. Personality" Flay, but I will watch his show tonight nonetheless.

If that were my first time competing in a competition like the Memphis in May I would be very happy with 87th out of 107 teams.

Yeah I saw that. Rokers smokers too. It would suck to have to bbq in the middle of a hurricane...lol. I was kind of disapointed in the smoker they use...self powered pellets seem like it take the fun out of the whole thing....but maybe im wrong on that

I was impressed with the smoker abd it's ability to maintain a constant temperature in good conditions, but even the best equipment isn't foolproof. The rain was giving them temperature problems adn the storm the night before the competition knocked out the power so they had to restart the smoker and lost some cooking time the day of the competition.
I'm not sure how I liked the Bobby Flay show yet. I think I will give it another week to see how it works out.

I watched it and once again Flay's lousy people skills were bubbling under the surface as always. Besides Flay, there was some good info and entertainment there. Not much substance for me really, though I've read all of Steve's books and am jaded somewhat. Still, if BBQ is your hobby, don't miss the shows., I won't as painful as it is to sit and watch Flay sometimes.

Did anyone see Alton Jones cook a steak right on the coals last night? Is that normal? Thanks, Stripegrill for the heads up, I'm a regular fan, but but I'm not normally home on Wednesday nights so it was good to see it.

It's called a dirty steak and I think it's in one of Steve's books but which one fails me at the moment. Yes, it's quite good if done properly.

It's in Steven's "Beer Can Chicken" book. It's on my list of new things to try this summer...

If you don’t want to put your steak on the coals, you can get a couple of river rocks (the smooth round type) and put them on the coals instead. Wait until the rocks are nice and hot, and then place the steak right on them. This will give you the same effect and without having to worry about ashes. You can easily find these rocks at any garden store.
