Best ever Kebab recipe


Kebab. Kebob. Kebaaab. Sort of like tomato, tomaaato. Whatever you call them, kebabs are sort of the ultimate version of meat on a stick. Originally a Turkish delight dating to the 1,300s (most likely earlier, as it is basically meat on a stick, cooked over fire) kebab has also become a staple of Indian menus. […]

Rotisserie Chicken


Since we bought our new Napoleon Grill, either we’ve been away, or I have been out covering events, so we haven’t had a chance to try out the wickedly heavy duty rotisserie that came with the beast. So today, before heading off to our kid’s ball game, I decided to spin up a couple of […]

The Beast makes its way home


I dropped by Napoleon Grills’ head office in Barrie today and picked up our new Prestige Series P500 grill. It looks great in its box, but will look even better after we assemble it and get dinner going!

As regular readers know, we are having some challenges on the equipment side of the BBQ lifestyle here in the FAB Whitby kitchen. I have been doing lots of research into higher end barbecues online. On the Napoleon Grills Facebook page, I came across this hilarious video by D’Italiano Bread that features the Canadian built […]

Smoked To-maters

While smoking ribs on the weekend, I decided to try smoking tomatoes as a base for a BBQ sauce. I tucked a few Thai chilies in there too, just to kick it up a notch. I wasn’t overly happy with my end sauce, so there won’t be a recipe to follow but they still look […]

BBQ Bacon wrapped Meat Log

Over the weekend, the FAB Whitby kitchen had a visit from the Sweetie Girl Racing gang on their way home from a weekend at the track. We knew they were coming, but we didn’t know exactly how many people we might have, so in advance I made 8 pounds of burger mix. That is one […]

Smoked Chicken Wings are THE BEST

Yesterday I posted an Instagram pic of a mound of dry rubbed wings, before they headed into the smoker. The almost finished result is above. Years ago, I worked in a restaurant that was known for its great chicken wings. The secret was that they were dry rubbed and then roasts at 275 degrees for […]

The dry rub has been applied and into the smoker they go!

Burgers stuffed with Jack and Bacon


There are those who will tell you that a great burger starts with a great bun. Personally, I believe a great burger starts with great beef, lots of cheese and fresh toppings, all crammed into a great bun. So, I guess my take is that a great burger is only complete with a great bun! […]

Another BBQ bites the dust


The economy of buying cheap barbecues is beginning to drive me crazy. Spend $300 or so, to buy a shiny new BBQ that has rusted beyond belief in just three years. Of course the alternative is to pay over a grand to buy a beastly machine that will last years longer. Our last BBQ purchase […]
