Stories about our BBQ and what we grill on it.

Turn off the grill and gamble


The winter can be hard to get in some good grilling. The BBQ is buried under snow and the lawn chairs are in the shed.

How do you fill the time til spring rolls around?

How about some poker or some online gambling? Do you know where to find the best online casino?

Today I came across another great website that provides a lot of information on online casinos.

The handy little site is a ratings guide to the best online casinos, poker rooms and gaming sites on the Internet

What better place to find everything you want to do with online gambling and online casinos.

The people over at Dex Casino has been wagering at online casino sites for several years and they know which casinos are reputable through their personal experience. Many hours have been put in by the team so they can bring you the best info.

The website also will for review poker rooms for those who are into that. I like to play online poker so that is awesome.

But when it comes down to it, playing at casinos online has always been the website’s number one focus. The proof is in the pudding I have to say.

I checked out the site and like it a lot. The style and the look of the site is not hard to figure out. Everything is easy to use and it does make me feel safe and secure using it. You have to trust a site if you want to use it. This one fits that bill.

The main page has many different sites to check out and the best part is you know they have already done the hard work for you.

Now you don’t have to waste a lot of time checking around the web for sites. You can take that time and do whatever you want.

For the best online gambling experience I recommended this website and the casinos they review.

So if the grill is cold and you are looking for ways to fill your time, check out this site.

Betting for those who BBQ


Done grilling and want a great place on the Internet to find out everything you need to know about where to find the best online gambling sites?

Of course you do because you are a man's man and nothing says that more than grilling meat and gambling.

At they do all the hard work for you so you can just sit back and enjoy all the gaming action.

Pro360.ccm will provide you with a fully detailed review of online casinos, listing such factors as the gaming experience, a trust score and any bonuses offered by each online casino.

These important factors are key in the selection of your favorite online casino and games such as poker, craps, slots and roulette.

Most online casino site reviews are designed to help you cut down on the time you spend searching for the best sites. When you are filtering through almost 3000 online casinos that allow you to gamble online it can become overwhelming on where to go.

That does not even take into account all the new sites that are added to the market everyday. You don’t want to use a website that is not worth your time or your money.

It is very important that a review site such as lists these in detail so your gambling experience can be the best on the Internet. Why would you want anything less? You deserve the best.

The site is easy to use and is not cluttered with ads and pop up windows. Certainly a good experience for the user.

Turn off the propane and give this site a try. I think you will like it.

Yes I know from the headline you must be confused. How do shopping carts have software? Is it to make the wheels all go straight?

Well no, it is about online shopping carts for your business.

If you have any type of business that sells stuff you need to get online to make it easy for people to buy. The most important thing to have is a great environment that is easy, secure and fast for people buying products.

Ashop Commerce is the way to go and their site provides a turn-key ecommerce solution.

Their business is state of the art online store building software and from what they say on the site, is one of the worlds most easy to use web based administrations. If it is true I would be very interested in learning more.
Their award winning features allow the merchant to build their online store and making it capable of competing with the most powerful sites.

The best part of this is the low monthly fee that Ashop Commerce charges. Sounds like a win win situation for everyone.

This software is regarded as the most intuitive shopping cart software in the world. Wow I did not even know that kind of stuff was ranked.

Need to get some propane? Payday loans can help


Good day to all my fellow grillers.

Today I want to share news about a website that can help you out of a pinch if you are short on cash.

Today payday loans are very easy and you can do it all online without losing that much money in interest rates. I don't think it is something you should get in the habit of doing but we all get stuck sometimes.

Of course the cash advance agency is going to make some amount of money off of the transaction but it isn’t going put you in debt for any long period of time. offers a long list of different online cash advance agencies for you to investigate and eventually choose from. I’ve looked into these payday loans before and as long as you get the loan and pay it back as soon as your paycheck comes in you should stay in good balance with your daily banking.

These services can get a bad reputation but that is usually the worst case scenarios that you hear on the news.

At you can check out what agencies they recommend and also read a few articles on cash advances, in case you need some reassurance when it comes to making the transaction.

If you’re hurting for some cash and you know you can’t make it until payday, check out this site and make it easy with one simple move.

Every little bit helps and the blog world is doing it's best to help out.

All of us who blog always dream of having our blog be our main source of income. We are writing and posting anyways so why not get paid?

Some people get to do this as a career. But for most of us it is a hobby and if we are lucky a little advertising will add a few bucks to the bank account. Well I have good news for you.

I came across a website when searching the Internet that helps you blog for money by writing your opinions on other sites. The choice is yours when picking what you write. Great news!

It is called Smorty and it is a site that helps bring together bloggers like me and advertisers for the greater good.

You sign up, add your blog and if approved you are opened up to a giant list of companies that want your positive and sometimes negative words on their products.

There is nothing better for those of us who blog everyday anyways, than to make money for blogging.

I have been doing it for some time on other sites and it has worked so well. Every little bit helps with winter coming and the high prices of heating the house.

I was approved quickly and have already been given a long list of advertisments to write my thoughts on. Unlike other services that contact you when they have a task, this service provides a list of advertisements just waiting for you when you have the time.

Once you accept a task, that has the payout listed right there, you have three days to take care of business. Not too bad when you consider most of them are jobs you can write out in minutes.

It is all about the site or product getting onto sites that will offer a lot of eyes. It is the nature of the beast when you think of it.

Extra money comes in handy when you want to buy some new gear for your BBQ. Happy grilling everyone.

Take a break from grilling and check out some of the best ways on the net to find sites to gamble on.

Here are some of the best ways to find USA online casinos and it was pretty easy if you ask me.

I came across the website and what it does is it takes care of all the hard work for you so you can spend more time playing online.

How great is that!

While a steak is grilling on the bbq, you can play some top online poker. It is that quick.

It can be a pain typing all your information into a search engine like google or yahoo and then have to weed through all of the sites it lists for gambling. This site on the web rates the best sites in a simple list that gives you all the info you need fast.

It shows the name of the gambling website, a small logo for the company, the bonuses it has, the payout, the overall rating and a review of the site. It will also mention if you need to download anything to use like software or plugins for your web browser.

Pretty simple concept when you think about it but very clean and efficient. I did not have to go searching for information and waste a lot of time, it is all right there on the opening page and and very little is located below the fold.

So once you are done eating that tasty, grilled steak, check out this site.

It really does not matter what type of online gaming you are looking for, this website has it all.

Check it out, it opened my eyes to a few sites I did not know about and when I have the time to do some online gaming I will be using this site for sure.

Bookmark it and you will be pleased.





When the burners won’t light, there is often an obstruction in the fuel supply line. This normally occurs between the on-off valve on the barbecue and the burner.

The usual culprit: A bug. Even when the valve is off, insects can nest in the line. Keeping them out is tough to prevent — even wrapping the unit in a plastic bag hasn’t done the trick.

So you’ll have to deal with it on the other end by cleaning them out. Here’s how:

•Remove the cover that conceals the metal line between the burners and the on-off valve on the barbecue (not the on-off valve to the propane tank).

•With the fuel tank completely off, disconnect the fuel line.

•Immerse the line in cleaner and use a long, soft, narrow wire to thoroughly clean the inside of the fuel tube. We use auto parts cleaning solvent and air pressure from our compressor. Never put the line back unless you know it is completely dry.

•Replace the parts as they were removed only after spraying soapy water on the connections to insure that there are no leaks. If a leak exists, the soapy water will bubble.

If you are experiencing uneven heating, chances are your burners are rusted or corroded.

When a burner is new all of the holes are the same size. As grease and food make their way to the bottom of the barbecue the burner ports often become partially clogged. Also, rust can wreak the same kind of havoc.

All that is needed here is a wire brush, an ice pick and 20 minutes of your time. Barbecue burners are usually very easy to remove. That’s because they are designed to be easily removed for cleaning.

Remove the various layers between the cooking surface and the burners, and then simply remove the burner. It may be wise to review your owner’s manual on how to perform this task. Use a wire brush to completely clean the burner surfaces and scrub until a shine results.

Use the ice pick to loosen fragments caught in the burner holes. Clean until all of the holes look about the same size. Use an air compressor at your local gas station if need be, and ensure that all debris has been removed from within the burner.

A dirty cast iron barbecue grill grate is easy to clean. Here’s how:

•Get a bowl of plain water and a long grill cleaning brush (the metal kind).

•Get the barbecue as hot as you can get it.

•Submerse the cleaning brush in the water and immediately scrub a rung from end to end until all the water disappears (about seven seconds). Repeat for each rung.

•Finally, lightly coat the grill with oil to season it.

You should not use this process on stamped metal grill (the kind that looks like the top of a broiler pan). It will warp and twist and be damaged beyond repair.

Tales from the Quebec Grill


These were submitted by Kyle when him and his wife went on vacation to a small cottage in Quebec.

Kyle also wanted to pass along this link. There is a list of some of the coolest BBQ's you will ever see and never be able to afford.

Thanks Kyle.

Long time grilling


Well it has been a long time since I last posted. Not a lot of grilling going on but that is no real excuse. I have been working on other ventures a lot more I guess.

No worries though, I am back with another tasty dish called tales from the grill.

Yesterday when we got back from a long dog walk we had a quick grill fest in the back yard for lunch. Burgers were the dish and we were the diners.

Nothing fancy just old school grilled meat on a bun.

Tonight however we stepped it up and allowed the bbq to perform the task it was made for. Grilling tasty steaks!!

That is right I cooked up two big ol' steaks for amazing consumption. They were good that is for sure and the spinach salad and cold stella helped out a lot.

I cannot believe it is August and nobody has submitted tasty pics of themselves grilling. So sad.

Anyways have yourself a great evening.

Chillin & Grillin


We spent a lot of time in the backyard again yesterday so that meant more bbq'in of course.

We had some more PC Blue Cheese burgers and corn on the cob. I had a few hot dogs too. Nothing exciting but it was grilling!

Everyone is on their vacations and spending a lot of time outdoors, so there should be pictures of some grilling! Send them in and I will post them for sure.

Have a good Friday.

This week's BBQ picture

Backyardigans again


Yesterday we spent a great deal of time in the backyard, reading, crosswording, card playing, relaxing and of course bbqing!!

Lastnight's meal was blue cheese burgers, corn on the cob and baked potatoes with the mashed middled scooped out mixed up with good stuff and scooped back in!

Very good indeed with some cheese cake for dessert. All in all We were out in the yard for a good five hours. What a great day.

Grilling pic of the week


Nothing exciting


Grilled up some Italien sausages in the rain lastnight. Not too exciting but still worthy of a post.

Send in those pics!

Another back yard event


Lastnight we had Paul and Tara over for a BBQ. Katie knows them through her job at Kings and they are fun to have over. The menu, spicy home made burgers, sweet potato fries and spinach salad.

The burgers:
  • ground beef
  • 3 hot peppers
  • quarter of an onion
  • hot sauce
  • bbq sauce
  • cilantro
  • worchester sauce
  • salt and pepper
After chopping up of course I threw all the ingredients except the beef into a bowl and ground it up with my new muddler. I could smell the heat from the peppers so I knew it was a good move.

I then mixed it up with the ground beef and formed the pattys. They cooked up really nice and were very spicy. Katie said they were the best to date. Woah.

Back to work tomorrow so the grilling may be put on hold for a few days.

Quick and easy grillin


On Saturday night Katie and I had a nice BBQ meal in the backyard again. No paparazzi pics this time since we just had burgers but they were very tasty once again.

Hoping to step it up this week with something new and fun for the grill.

stay tuned for more and please send me in those pictures of you grillin! It is summer!

Here is a pic to keep you all warm and fuzzy.

It is my friend Kev cottaging up this week.

There is no grill but he looks pretty chill.

Finally a backyard bbq


Lastnight the sun finally came out and we bbq'd up some dinner and enjoyed in in the backyard. I even used the side burner to boil some corn! Burgers were enjoyed and the fresh air was nice.

I am sure this will be the first of many backyard feasts this summer.

Weekend BBQ


So this past weekend we hosted our first bbq and despite the rain and the wet backyard fun was had by all. Due to grilling in the rain there are no action shots of the actual grilling but there are a few of the finished product. Simple meal, burgers and dogs but it is the love and care that you put into them as the griller that makes them what they are!

Gotta get back in the grillin game


Well I have to admit I have been slacking in the grillin department! In the last few weeks with the weather and dining out a lot there has not been a lot of fired meat happinin!

I did cook some sausages last week for my parents but that was nothing exciting. They tasted great but it was not worth a picture I guess.

We did visit my parents trailer and my dad bbq'd up some tasty chicken burgers so I have some shots of that.

This weekend we are holding our first bbq with guests so that will be worth blogging.

Please check in for that and I hope to get some more pictures of others grillin the good fight as well.

Take care for now

Last night we cooked up some italien sausages covered in various sauces and spices. Tossed them in some large toasty buns and it was a tasty meal!

The grill was sure happy to see us, it had not been used in the month of June yet. Great day for a bbq and everyone though 6/6/6 was goin to be a bad day!

My parent arrive today so there will be a lot of bbq news and pics to come I am sure.

Ka-bob's your uncle


Lastnight we cooked up some pre-made pork ka-bobs from Sobeys. I rolled them in some bbq sauce before hand and toss them on the fire. They cooked up pretty good and were pretty juicy with flavor. Another great feast from the grill.

Slow week for grilling but that will change


Hi there, it was a slow week on the grill but that was only because I was working. Lastnight we had steak again and it turned out even better than before!

I want to thank JPR for playing along and sending in a picture. I only hope more people will do so soon.

Things to look forward too? We picked up some ka-bobs for tomorrow night so stay tuned for that.

Fellow Grillers


Here will be pictures of fellow griller showing off their stuff. Please email in your picture of you grilling or maybe your meat on the grill or a recipe. I hope to have a long list one day. Thank you.

The Grillin Gang

JPR and his pulled pork on the takes about 6
hours--and is it ever good.

So to continue the weekend of bbq'in yesterday we prepped a tray of chicken legs for grillin. Four legs we soaked in a pineapple sizzle maranade and two we threw into a baggy with some tasty bbq sauce. They soaked up all day and last night after the Pistons won it was time to fire up the barby!

They turned out very cajun like but very tasty none the less.

We had some rice with it and it was a great long weekend dinner, the best part is there is a lot of left overs!

Two words - Steak rub!


Yesterday was a great day for grilling, a long weekend, sunshine and a chance to go to the grocery store and getting all the goods.

We decided to have steak and test out the bbq with that and some baked tators. The key to the whole meal was that we picked up some steak rub at the grocery store. If you have not tried this I highly suggest it, it made the steak so tasty!

I trhew some spices and such in the baked potatos tooa and wrapped them up in foil. They turned out real nice too.

Here is all the photos from the grillin. Hope you had a good Saturday of bbq fun as well.

sausage party


No not that kind of sausage party! Last night we cooked up some hot-italian sausages on the grill and they were pretty tasty. I also wedged up some sweet potatos and seasoned them with chipotle chili powder, wrapped them in foil and threw them on the grill too. They were oh so tasty.

Add a side spinach salad and thats what was for dinner on Kline last night. The weather is great no so it is time for a lot of grilling. I hope you all have your grill working in over drive too.

Please send in those pics of you grilling and I will add them to the page.

have a grillin good day
