No, not to get home from the shore. Bacon is underway on the BGE before 9 AM! Black pepper, coriander, bay leaf cure. My clothes already reek of applewood smoke.

This year we welcomed a new member to the Jerzeetomato family of grills. This sweet satay grill that The Principessa gave me last Christmas. It’s what Thai street vendors use for those skewers of bliss. Hats off to the good folks import food.com for importing this.

Our production seems to be outpacing the losses from shoplifting by the varmints.

There’s still hope…

…apparently, for a better supermarket tomato.  I’ll believe when I taste it.



Nothing goes with Bluegrass like….Vietnamese food?

Seriously. Well, for this family at any rate.

For the last few years we’ve been going to a music festival in western Maryland called Delfest every Memorial Day weekend. Camping out at a county fairground and soaking up the music for four fun filled days. Last year we started what we hope will be a tradition. Vietnamese food night at Delfest!

Clay Pot Pork had made it into the heavy rotation for dinner at home and one night shortly before last year’s Delfest we figured out it could be made pretty easily on a camp stove, particularly if all the prep work was done at home before driving down.

Once the Principessa started cooking, we had a constant stream of people stopping by our campsite, angling for taste. Hell, next year we could probably vend the stuff!

Dream Job

OK, so this guy landed what may be the greatest job in the world.  And I didn’t realize he’s the first ever.  Had I know this I would have declared myself the BBQ Editor of Jerzeetomato.com.  So I’ll do it now, henceforth I will be know as the BBQ and Grill Editor-In-Chief as well as the Minister of Mesquite, Oracle of Oak, and Wizard of Woodsmoke.

But seriously, this article got me off my butt to share something, and I’m hoping to do more of that in the summer of 2013.



Police blotter

Missing: Tomatoes.  A lot of tomatoes.

Suspect:  The usual suspects.

Due to some rather draconian firearm  laws in my town, I can’t deal with the tomato thieves the way I’d like.  So far, the squirrels have out-consumed the family to a ratio of about 3 to 1.

However, if I lived in the city I’d be dealing with a whole other class of thieves.



The Town Pool is closed….

…due to extreme heat.  Really.  I just received an email from the town pool that says:

“Due to the extreme weather conditions, the G.R. Pool will be closed today between 1:00 pm and 4:00 pm.”

I thought someone had hacked the pool’s email account.  But it’s true.
