Did You Know That Corned Beef and Cabbage is Not an Irish Meal?

It is funny how we Americans consume certain foods with certain holidays.

$6,000 in Prizes Will Be Given Away During the ‘Smokin’ Good Times BBQ Challenge’

Our family couldn't wait. The winter was long - some might say torturous - so at the very first sign of decent weather we went outside and cooked on the grill. A friend of mine co-hosts a barbecue show, and his show has decided that the time change should officially mark the start of grilling season. I think that's a great (or grate?) idea. In June, the Quincy Knights of Columbus will host the Smokin Good Times BBQ Challenge, so if you haven't done any outdoor cooking, you'll want to start practicing soon. Thousands of dollars are up for grabs!

Slate Assigns Porterhouse, Spare Ribs and Loose Meat as ‘Official’ Meats of the Tri-States

What are the Most Popular Football Snacks? [Poll]

The Super Bowl is coming up on February 2. Quite honestly, I don't care about either team playing this year (no offense, Denver or Seattle fans). Even so, I'll probably still watch the game, if for no other reason than to have an excuse to fix a bunch of really unhealthy snacks.
