Stubb's BBQ Giveaway

Father's Day isn't even here yet and here's a July 4th giveaway for some barbecue sauce from Stubbs. It is a US only giveaway for $150 in product. Ends 6/26.

Now that the warmer weather is upon us, it’s prime time to get out and barbecue. Rocky Stubblefield, Stubb’s Legendary Bar-B-Q brand ambassador and grandson of founder C.B. “Stubb” Stubblefield, offers a few tips and recipes he’s picked up over the years to make you the grilling hero of any barbecue, family gathering or even weeknight dinner. Stubb’s is the maker of authentic, premium, BBQ sauces, rubs and marinades and was founded by C.B. “Stubb” Stubblefield in 1968.
Stubb didn’t just make barbecue, he made friends, serving up his slow-smoked brisket, cole slaw and beans, all with his wide, trademark smile at his restaurant in Lubbock, Texas. It was during this time that Stubb first began bottling his now famous sauces at the request of his friends.
Rocky’s Grilling Tips
Today, Stubb’s heritage lives on in his legendary sauces, marinades and rubs, continuing to make people feel good all over the world.
  • Use indirect cooking for larger meats (indirect is cooking away from the fire), and direct cooking for smaller meats (direct is cooking over the fire).
  • When marinating, beef chicken and pork can be marinated up to two days in a refrigerator. You should only marinate seafood for a few hours.
  • When using charcoal, allow coals to ash over before adding meat to the grill.
  • When cooking burgers, make a thumbprint in the middle of the patty before putting it on the grill. This will help the patty come out nice and flat (not puffy in the middle) and the meat will be cooked evenly throughout.

RIP Rue McClanahan

 Image courtesy
It seems to be an annual phenomenon the past couple of years. In 2010, Rue McClanahan, aka Blanche Devereaux from The Golden Girls, died. For the past couple of years, on the anniversary of her death, 6/3, people posted remembrances of her. They even include links to the obituary article on CBS about the death from 2010. Then the whole world goes, Oh God! Blanche is dead, thinking it happened this year. And everyone's Facebook/Twitter feed fills with RIP Rue or related posts.

Joy Williams "VENUS" Album Review

I received this product for the purpose of this review. All opinions states are my own and may differ from yours.
Joy Williams "VENUS" Album Review
Joy Williams is a four time Grammy Award winner with the folk-rock duo group The Civil Wars, with John Paul White. Joy Williams VENUS hits the stores on June 29th and is her fifth solo album and first since the breakup last year of The Civil Wars. I had early access and a chance to review before than. Here are my initial thoughts on the album, and the lead single Woman (Oh Mama) which was released in March.
