Hey barbecue fans! The first week of the big
BBQ Tweet contest
ended Friday and I'm delighted to report that
I received lots of great tweets and e-mail entries.
There were simple, delicious recipes like graemeb3's: "The easiest
and most delicious BBQ salmon recipe: salmon covered in mild salsa
placed on tinfoil. Great when camping too!"
Carib1028 had my mouth watering with this nicely condensed recipe
for a stuffed burger: "saute onions, shitake/load on thin patty w/
cheese/top w/ thin patty/seal/grill w/ R&Ds BBQ sauce/serve on
GisellLaRose shared a delicious take on burger seasoning: "My
secret weapon in my homemade bbq sauce or hamburgers is sesame oil
and cumin. Sooo good, you have to try it!"
I also got some excellent tips, like this one from 8chocolate:
"When cooking fish on barbq, wrap seasoned fillets in cabbage
leaves. Protects fish, keeps juices in and can eat the cabbage
All excellent, and worthy of honorable mention. It was a hard
choice, but here is the winner, which is a very short but touching
barbecue story from YVRBcbudz: "I had real BBQ from a southern
grandma the day the LA riots started and it was a coming together
of races over pulled pork." That pretty much captures the spirit of
barbecue as far as I'm concerned.
CONGRATS! YVRBcbudz, e-mail me at email@example.com with
your address and Barbecue Secrets DELUXE! publisher Whitecap Books
will get a copy in the mail to you right away.
Please keep the tweets and e-mails coming and I look foward to
announcing next week's winner. Don't forget, there are great prizes
for the grand champion and four runners up. Find out more about the
