OK, I got most of the content up. But my Dad did the ribs and while I have all the pics I have no writeup from him so that will have to wait till tomorrow. In the meantime I do have:

Grilled Bologna? Not slices, an entire chub of bologna



I got the idea for grilling an entire chub of bologna from a BBQ Forum. Simple enough recipe to try. Take an entire chub of bologna, slice off the bottom so it stands upright. Score the sides. Smoke/indirect for a few hours. To me, it hearkened back to college and fried bologna sammiches. This takes the fried bologna sammich to a whole other level and is so easy to do.

Who needs Baked Beans when you can have Grilled Beans!!




Baked beans have been a standard staple in terms of a side dish for BBQ seemingly forever. But why settle for baked beans? The grill is already up and running, why not use it to take baked beans to the next level. Why not impart some of that amazing smoky flavor that we so desire permeating the meat into the beans? There are a million ways to do grilled beans. This is just one of them. This is the simplest side dish. The prep time was all of 10 minutes and made a great side dish for a group of 20.

Bacon Wrapped Deer Tenderloin - It just wouldn't be my birthday without something wrapped in bacon!!








One of the main dishes for my birthday was bacon wrapped deer tenderloin. I've had deer in the past as I have many friends and family that are hunters, but it's always been a bit of an after thought rather than something I have taken a lot of time to prepare and cook. More like an appetizer or a chef's prerogative. This time we put some time and effort into the venison. For this dish, Dad and I did a tag team. He did the prep and I did the cooking. The outcome was pretty stellar.

A tease to the Ribs we did for the GrillinFool's Birthday BBQ Bonanza!!!



The Fool's Pappy did the Ribs for my birthday but has yet to give me the write up. I have all the pictures but no explanation of the process. So this shot of that amazing smoke ring will have to be all that I can show you right now. Hopefully I can get the rest up tomorrow....

The titles are all links to the rest of the write ups.

I thought it was too.  Total afterthought.  Threw it into the mix at the last minute just to try it. 

And thanks, it indeed was a happy B-Day till I found the single malt at about 2:00 am after imbibing all day.  The poker game was still going strong and I was sick of beer.  The next day I was even sicker of scotch

 I never thought of grilling venison. we've had it in gumbo but never grilled. I'll mention it to my FIL.  My FIL is an avid hunter/fisher and likes to experiment with different flavors and cooking styles. When he says fresh he means he caught it this morning, cleaned it this afternoon and is cooking it for dinner tonight.

Just make sure to use some sort of marinade.  Venison can be a little gamey.  The marinade solved that problem.  Everyone who had it just kept saying, "I can't believe this is venison.  I would've sworn it was beef."

Tell me about it!!!  Since the beginning of Feb, I have done the bacon explosion, bacon wrapped pork tenderloin and now bacon wrapped deer tenderloin.  Oh, and the last time I bought bacon it was on sale so I have two more pounds in the freezer!!!

Oh, and the rib pics and write up is done. Got some excellent pics to show what to look for to know if the ribs are done. Great read for those that have never tried ribs or rib noobs....
