Thirdeye Q

This site contains a collection of techniques for barbecuing, smoking and cooking over fire. The techniques shown here are not the only way or the best way to prepare a certain item. This site is just a starting point and these techniques are a guide to creating your own recipes. Recipes included here come not only from personal experiences, but from many knowledgeable folks kind enough to share their secrets. ~thirdeye~


From time to time I feature Polls to see what YOU, my readers are cooking. Currently no poll is available.

If you click HERE you will go to my Poll Page and can see results of other polls as well as web statistics for my site.


Suggestions for the Links Page

I’m in the early stages of compiling a Links Page that will appear on the Welcome Page. It will not be limited to barbecue only, but cookin’ and food in general. There will be a short description or just a category, (I’m not sure yet), and a hyperlink to the site.

The list will include reference sites (like spices, tools, USDA information etc.), commercial sites (folks who have something to sell), recipe sites, blog sites, forums etc.

Here is where you can help. To recommend a favorites site or get your site listed, click on Post A Comment at the bottom of this page and leave the complete address and a brief description. This will allow me to cut and paste to the list. Please keep the recommendations cookin’ and food related.

It is the most complete ceramic cooker information site I have found and has a famous charcoal database too.

4th Annual West Coast BBQ Championship

August 18, 2007, in conjunction with the Fairfield Tomatoe Festival. 10:00am - 6:00, Jefferson and Texas Streets, Fairfield, Solano Co., California.

This is the normal KCBS event that BBQ’ers on the circuit are used to. This series will play by the normal KCBS rules and cook the four meats as expected, plus Tri-tip. Teams for the 4th annual West Coast BBQ Championship are being split into two distinctly different series this year. Any team that has competed before in a KCBS, ICBA, MIM or other sanctioned BBQ event should proceed directly to the Championship series. Rookies or those not ready to take on the rigors and the spoils of the Championship series will be able to try their skills in the Competitor series. We encourage any individual or group to enter this contest - friends, family, car clubs, civic groups, public service supporters, anyone can compete here. This is an approved KCBS Sanctioned Event.

Hope to see you there!!!
