Long ways from home

Postby Longshotbbq » Sun Jun 09, 2019 11:23 pm

Grew up in Houston but the Marine Corps took me out to the middle of the Mojave desert. Not much BBQ out here... looking to learn to cook better for myself and my friends and who know, maybe even sell a little bit.

Howdy Neighbor and a salute in thanks. Pull up under one of them 29 Palms, dig a hole, start a fire, and throw down a great - voila, instant grilling.

Keep yer head down and yer powder dry, and you always do good.

I want to echo what the others have said, Thank You!! for what you are doing....
Welcome to the forum, I hope your visits here will take you away from the place you are in and give you a small minute of thoughts to a different place that becomes a recluse of refreshment for you.
Lots of great cooks on here to give you some guidance on honing your cooking skills. :salut:

Long Shot - here are a few "cheap way" ideas I scared up to help out, things like getting your buds to pitch in for 8-10 cinder blocks and some rebar, and you can rub and skewer some chickens over a ground pit barbecue set up. And there is a link to my alma mater's Texas A&M barbecue school - yep, they actually have a highly esteemed program there with an actual college credit course - that has stuff on improvised barbecue cooking. Also included a few "innovative" methods developed by rednecks the world over, mainly for laughs (proceed with caution on some). You can even make a grill out of a tall boy beer can. And some folks like to combine hot tubbing with a barbecue. I think the combination cooler and cooker is particularly... creative.

I would bet money your gunny or LT would let you guys dig a hole as a "field cooking exercise". In fact, I think I may try this myself over the weekend as an experiment (I've been itching to do it) and will post some photos. One tip: raw black steel grates or skewers are ok for cooking on, but never use galvanized or old refrigerator grates, they can be toxic.

Lastly, if you can send me a PM with an address for you on post, I'll send you a couple of rubs to get started with. We here at the TBBF stand behind our troops, flyboys, and importantly, the fighting Leathernecks.
