Keep those cards and letters flowing, kids!

Howdy Y’all,

Just wanted to take a sec and wish everyone a happy Spring and hope that ebveryone’s getting into the summer grove and taking advantage of grilliin’ and smokin’ and dazzling your family and friends with your genius using my goodies! And speaking of genius, I’d like to share a note I received recently from my newest best buddy Genny, who hails from the great state of New York. Seems that Genny has discovered the magic of my stuff and I just love the way she shared her appreciation with me and pleased as well to share it with y’all right here…

I was so taken with her having taken the time to send that of course I had to show my thanks and appreciation by sending her a nice bunch of some of my other goodies so she do some more adventuring with my stuff and maybe send me another nice note! J And I’ll do the same for anyone else out in the land of DennyMike’s wicked awesome sauces and rubs who is willing to take time away from their busy schedules to write to me sharing how you’re using my stuff to make you a star in your kitchen, on you patio or at your pits. Thanks again Genny!

And before I sign off, I think it’s a good time to share with you, once again, a couple of my favorite recipes for cooking on my grill; my bacon wrapped Pixie Dusted tenderloin and that wicked awesome spicy burger recipe I got from one of my aces at Whole Foods Market; try them and I’m sure you’ll come to love both recipes as much as I do. And don’t forget all the grilled veggies and fruit!! Finally, those who are around me quite a bit know that I have been using what I call my spray, sprinkle spray mantra until I’m blue in the face. Trust me, it works, and you don’t have to do it just when cooking on your gas grill, I do it when I’m pan frying, roasting and broiling.  Spray, sprinkle, spray your way to excellent results and some wicked tasty eating!  And please don’t forget to share your discovery of my goodies, and secrets, with all of your families and friends and tell them ‘One taste is all it takes…!” They’ll be happy that you did, and what could possibly be wrong with that?! J

Wishing everyone all the best for a happy, healthy, and most flavorful summer.


A (Grill) Grate Experience

Finally getting around to the Grill Grate Experience

I really don’t know what it is, call it a guy thing or maybe it’s just that I’m a little off kilter (to no one’s surprise…!), but I have a curious habit of buying or getting something that I want to try or use, and when I receive the item, I invariably set it aside, unopened for what could end up being a number of years before I get around to using it, no matter what my original motivation may have been. Weird, I tell ya! But the good news is, I always get around to it (a round tuit…?!) and I’m happy to be able to report that this is the case with my friends Brad and Susan Barrett’s award winning Grill Grate.
