    We had 20 people/coworkers over last night for pool party and cookout. Great time! I'm exhausted today but happy.

    There was a broccoli salad one brought that was incredibly good. I'll be begging the recipe out of her and will post soon.

    I used the smoker tray in the gas grill with mesquit chips for the first time last night and it really made a difference in the flavor. I'll now be experimenting with some of the other types wood chips to see what we like best with what foods.:ready:

    Only had to leave the grill once to walk into the the pool for a cool down. Much more comfy over the grill with wet shirt and trunks.:applause:

      I've found mesquite to be best with beef as it tends to burn real hot and smokey.

      For pork, try hickory, apple, peach or even pecan if you can get any. Another good idea is to spray apple juice on your pork, about every half hour...it keeps the meat moist as well as adding another layer of flavor

      I'm trying to avoid buying the differant types of wood on line...gets expensive with shipping...preferring to find a few orchards for the fruit wood...but that is a chore that will take some time.

      Outdoors World tends to carry a nice selection if you have a store near you:

        Thank you for the chip advise!

        I'm going to have to check and see what wood varieties Cabella's has next time I go to my daughters in TX.

                Jalapeno Ranch Beef Wraps

                Here is one that I got from the made in Oklahoma website.
                I haven't tried it yet, but do plan to.
                All Ok. products.


                2008 Grand Prize Winner
                Machelle Hamilton - Weatherford, Oklahoma

                Ingredients
                6 Chef's Requested Bacon Wrapped Beef Steaks
                Daddy Hinkle's Southwest Instant Meat Marinade
                4oz Cream Cheese Softened
                1/2 C Hiland Dairy Sour Cream
                2 tsp dry ranch dressing mix
                1 jalapeno seeded and finely chopped
                6-10 inch jalapeno & cheddar tortillas
                4 oz Braum’s shredded cheddar cheese
                6 lettuce leaves
                1 tomato thinly sliced
                1 avocado thinly sliced
                6 tsp Griffins Jalapeno Mustard
                Directions
                Thaw the Chef's Requested bacon wrapped beef steaks in the refrigerator overnight. Sprinkle steaks with the wet and dry Daddy Hinkle's South West Instant Marinade while grill is preheating.
                Grill or broil for approximately 9 minutes per side at medium high heat or until a meat thermometer reaches 160 degrees. Let meat rest 10 minutes then thinly slice.
                Mix together the cream cheese, Hiland Sour Cream, ranch dressing mix, and the chopped jalapeno.
                Spread mixture evenly over the 6 tortillas. Top with shredded cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, avocado, sliced steak, and the Griffins Jalapeno Mustard. Roll up burrito style and cut in half diagonally.
                Makes 6 hearty servings.

                  Nope, you are not missing anything.
                  We just discovered that we did not like Mango Tea at all.
                  I don't know who drinks that stuff.
                  They should provide a spit can with it.

                  I can still see the look on Jims face when he discovered
                  he had just been served the same as me. :applause:

                        I can't imagine living somewhere that I couldn't go into the back yard and get my own oak, mesquite and pecan. Heck, I may need to go into business with this. I know places that will pay me to remove their mesquite. And then to have someone willing to buy it from me too. Wow.
