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~

The green highlighted links In the RECIPE SECTION  will take you to  some of my favorite recipes. All of them have been tested by yours truly and many include some history, personal cooking notes or variations that you may want to try.

Several recipes or techniques featured  have come from other folks who have achieved the special status of Guest Pit Boss. Following testing, these recipes are published "by invitation only". The contributions may be a full recipe, another version similar to one of my favorites, just some tips, or maybe something like a sauce.
