    event Kato's 5th Annual results are in!

    He sent the info several months ago for the contest. It was a bit more expensive this time around so some of us couldn't afford the entry fee. I also sent a message and didn't hear back. Im guessing that with his delicious sauces, they are busy in Fla. I need to order more Rajun Cajun as...

    smokers Big Green Egg

    The large ranges in at around $800. It's a ton for sure. But I re-iterate ,I have, in all 42 years, never cooked on anything like it. Also real nice to have a friend that owns aone! You know the old saying "It's better to have a friend with a (pool, boat, trampoline) than to own one yourself!".

    smokers Big Green Egg

    The BGE is the deal. My buddy has one and we have used it to cook everything from pulled pork to shrimp to burgers, etc. We have also used it in the Charlotte BBQ cookoff. I too am at the point where I want one so bad but it's tough to justify the cost. They are well worth every penny...

    event Kato's 2009 Hot Sauce & Fiery Food Contest

    I do concur that the acrylic trophy looks fine settin on the mantle. I am a bit disappointed though at this years fees. At $35 a poke, that really limits me (and I'm guessing most evryone else). Mick, can you arrange a stepped up over time cost like the THP does, or a bulk discount...

    food Ass Kickin Chili Fixins is total garbage

    Thanks for the alert on another crap prepacked product, Shane. I am just so damn tired of packaged stuff with the promise of goodness or usefullness or Worlds best, etc, etc. There needs to be compliance or die rule to advertising. Sorry "Mr. Ass Kick" your chili sucks, now you must die...

    Chili Man gets some free advertising!

    I have 3 spots that I frequent during the week. Uptown for two, University area for two and the Charlotte School of Law on Tuesday. My mantra for the cart is "Get popular and get scarce". I found that folks are more likely to show up if you are not at their beck and call 5 days a week. So I...
