It's Not You, It's Meat

The end of the Meatwave season, just because it's inevitable doesn't mean it hurts any less. In a normal year, the Meatwave would have been long put to rest by late October, but an Indian summer helped keep things going this season. I couldn't have been more grateful for that one last sunny, 65 degree day. It allowed me to put a nice footnote on the year by giving back to all the great friends who've been persistently supportive by grilling up a Thanksgiving meal done Meatwave style.

August marked the last time we had an official Meatwave, and while there was a pretty kick-ass pizza party and barbecue competition since then, I've been itching to get back at my true love. With fall settling in and time running short for more meat feasts this year, I wanted to make this one count. I started by theming it around a couple of my favorite cuisines—Mexican and Tex-Mex—and filling it with incredible dishes.

Shape shifting ground meat creations filled the menu as we welcomed friends old and new in yet another feast that has made this summer one of the best yet.

Carne-val 2013

It's not a summer without the festival of all that is meat, Carne-val! I like to throw one absolute blow-out Meatwave each summer, where I spend many days preparing and smoking up a feast of everyone's favorites like pulled pork, ribs, and chicken. With a competition coming up and needing to practice all of those things, it made sense to keep with tradition and try out new barbecue recipes while continuing to deliver the irresistible feast that defines this annual event.

Revenge of the Meatwads

Revenge of the Meatwads

Looking back at last year's Meatwaves, I realized we went an entire summer without any meatwads! I was determined to fix that error this season, but with nearly two years to plan a revenge, the meatwads amassed an army of rolled and stuffed brethren we'd have to eat our way through first before reaching our true adversary. It was a noble fight, and we took it head on in the name of deliciousness.
