A Flower Garden of Your Own

I absolutely adore flower gardens. Whenever I want to relax and view nature in one of its most beautiful forms, I sit in or near a flower garden. Smelling the aromatic fragrances of roses always instantly improves my mood. Do you have a flower garden on your property? If you don’t currently have a flower garden, consider starting one this summer. If your knowledge about flowers is limited, visiting a local home and garden center is a great idea. An expert at this kind of business establishment can help you pick the varieties of flowers that grow best in your part of the country. On this blog, I hope you will discover the easiest types of flowers to grow in a backyard flower garden. Enjoy!

That's SMOKIN' HOT! How To Do BBQ Right

by Amelia Sutton

Too many amateur grill users think that BBQ involves firing up the grill and cooking meat until it has the lines on it. Sadly, that is just another way to cook meat. That is not true barbecue. If you want to know how to do true barbecue (or BBQ, for short), you should learn how to do it right. Here are some starter tips that can help.

Buy Some BBQ Grill Guides

There are so many ways to do BBQ right. To get some good ideas, you should buy some BBQ grill guides. These guides will tell you how to cook the various meats perfectly, as well as how to season them to perfection. Some grill guides also include recipes for seasoning rubs and BBQ sauces from around the world.

Buy a Meat Smoker

Some of the more intense flavors of barbecued meat comes from smoking the meat first. Buy your own meat smoker, which you can place next to your grill outside. When the meat has completed the smoking process, you can add whatever sauce or rub to it you want and throw it right on the grill. Prep and start the smoker early in the morning to enjoy freshly-smoked BBQ for supper or late lunch. (Beef brisket BBQ, like it is done in the South, requires a long, slow, smoking and roasting process before grilling. If you master that, you are definitely on your way to learning the art of BBQ'ed foods.)

A Wood-Fired Grill Is Best

Gas grills provide a nice even cooking, but they lack the added flavor of a mesquite briquette grill. A wood-fired grill is best, if you have one. If you do not have such a grill, and you are serious about becoming a "Grill Master," you should go buy a wood-fired grill, too. This will allow you to attempt some of the more advanced BBQ recipes and skills, when you are ready to try them.

Experiment with Different Meats

Get out of your comfort zone. Quit throwing hamburgers, steaks, and hot dogs on the grill and try bison, lamb, or venison. You will never learn how to do BBQ right if you stick to what you know. Also, try other typical meats, such as chicken and pork, with every kind of rub, smoke, and sauce to find something that really appeals to you and your family. Then try that on your friends!
