The Dog Days of Summer

Okay. Not quite yet. But I can feel them on the horizon; the humidity is rising and the temperature is getting into the orange and red zones. Thank goodness for air conditioning!

I and my family had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I hope the rest of you had the same. There's nothing quite like barbecuing babyback ribs on the charcoal grill. Low and slow, that's my method - and don't forget the mesquite chips for the smoke. Right now we're a two grill family; we have the Weber Performer charcoal grill and the Weber Baby Q gas grill. As we don't do that much gas cooking, I'm barely satisified with the Baby Q. It's rather small and the single burner just doesn't do anything for me; I'd upgrade to a Weber Q 300, but it's so danged expensive. I could get an Aussie Bondi two-burner grill for under $100 on eBay. But I think I'll just keep the Baby Q and invest in a Weber Smoky Mountain Cooker/Smoker. I've a hankering for some pulled pork and beef brisket. And then there's the idea of a whole roast turkey for Christmas dinner. Yum! Yum!

Has anyone used the rotisserie accessory on the Weber Performer? Is it easy to use? Got any great recipes?

As you may know if you've read earlier posts, I'm in the process of writing two novels. One is more mainstream, with a bit of romance, the other is more science fiction - very science fiction! I've been in quite a funk and am just now getting back into the creative mood.

Okay, you're going to have to post some recipies. This is the third time you've mentioned barbecue and I don't know if I'm just hungry or what, but my mouth is watering. Are you going to share your recipes? Huh? Huh?
