Restaurant Review – “Bibs”

When it comes to barbecue in the Triad, me and the missus are all about some Prissy Polly’s (right in the heart of KVegas).  And we’ll continue to eat there and always get banana puddin’ for dessert. But there’s a new cooker in town.


A couple of weeks ago, my friend Kent went OFF on us about a place he had just eaten at in downtown Winston-Salem. “Best barbecue around!” And folks, he was right. Kent was nice enough to invite me out for lunch today and I am a believer…

Brilliant AND delicious.


MEAT CARDS do not fit in a Rolodex, because their deliciousness CANNOT BE CONTAINED in a Rolodex.

Ever wanted to deep-fry your Zero Bar right before game time? It’s no longer a dream, my friend. It’s reality.


Fried foods and football go together so well, we’re surprised we hadn’t seen one of these on a tailgate until this past weekend. The Coleman Frywell Portable Deep Fryer ($170) is a propane-powered 6,000-BTU/hour fryer with a large 6 qt. basket that holds up to a pound of parking lot provisions.

  • Sports a weather-resistant high-gloss metallic-painted steel exterior and a corrosion-resistant heavy duty plated steel basket.
  • No cords needed.
  • Propane powered.
  • Over-temperature shut-off sensor helps prevent overheating.
  • Functional lid is spring-loaded, view through, vented, complete with latches to keep securely closed.
  • Capable of 450ºF cooking and fast recovery between batches.

Gentlemen, start your fryers.

It’s confession time.

Here it is. My blog confession for the day:

I look through my brother’s pantry for food when I babysit my nephew.

It’s true. And I think they know it. Look, a lot of times they have cool junky kid stuff that I don’t normally buy or even look at. And a lot of times, I have some. One time, I cleared out their whole supply of cheese puff balls. And left the wrappers out as evidence! It was a travesty.

But let’s get past the morality of it and talk about what I really want to talk about. This.

Yes. They had a box of this in their pantry. No, I don’t know why they bought it. And yes, I had a bowl of it. And yes, it was good. When is the last time you had Count Chocula cereal? Or Franken-Berry? Or Boo-Berry? We loved this sugary cereal mix as a kid. We even forced our grandmother to buy us “Kaboom!” one time. And then it turned out to be so sugary and nasty that we ended up throwing almost the whole box away. What were your favorites as a kid?

If you’re wondering, yes, the package looks different. And here’s some thoughts on that, too.
