Review: Kingsford 100% Pure Premium Hardwood Pellets

Product: Kingsford 100% Pure Premium Hardwood Pellets
Company: Kingsford
Price: 10lb bag $11.99 | 20lb bag $18.99

Kingsford contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing their new wood pellets they are bringing to market. Of course, I said yes. I use a Louisiana Grill for most of my cooking now and have competed with it. It's a great cooker and I love that I can set it and "leave" it. Lately though I've been noticing certain pellets tend to back up the auger and cause fire in the hopper, which is very bad. So I was hoping that the Kingsford ones might be another alternative.

Review: Grill Pinz

 Creator: Dan Cranston
Price: $13+

Grill Pinz are a cool new grilling product from Dan Cranston. He is kicking of a Kickstarter this month to be able to produce these stainless steel cooking Pinz. They are ideally built for grilling but can be used in the oven or where ever you need to hold food together while cooking it. They take the place of toothpicks.

About two years ago I purchased an iGrill mini. This past Christmas I revived another as a gift. . The igrill mini is a little Bluetooth thermometer that talks directly to your mobile devices and lets you track your cook my temperatures from anywhere on the house. I love them.

In May I had the opportunity to go to Paris, France for work. While I was there I took advantage of the opportunity to see if there were any BBQ joints there. I found two and was able to go to one and try it. It was worth the walk.

Review: More BBQ and Grilling for the Big Green Egg & other Kamado-style cookers

More BBQ and Grilling is written by Eric Mitchell an award winning pitmaster who has been cooking on the Big Green Egg since 2000. He and his wife started the team, Yabba Dabba Que!, and compete in competitions throughout the North East. They have competed in both the Jack Daniel
s World Championship Invitational and the American Royal where they earned a perfect score for their crème brûlée.

I don't own a Kamado-style cooker but the recipes are easily adapted to other cookers and grills. If you have a Big Green Egg or similar cooker this cook book is great. Eric gives you the information to set up your your cooker correctly to get the temperatures you want. The last chapter talks about care and set up of your kamado-style cooker from purchase to use. The recipes cover everything from appetizers to desserts.
