The marriage of barbecue flavors and Mexican dishes is perhaps one of the most natural in our country. Cooking meat in big Texas smokers infuses them with incredibly delicious flavors, while the spices and complimentary sides in Mexican cuisine help bring out the meat's inherent smokiness. Dive into this ultimate fusion food by learning about what it is, where you can find it, and how to make your own.
"It's classic American barbecue with the volume turned to high..."
When it comes to cooking, one thing I'm a big fan of is meat. Here at Rock Father HQ, my wife and daughters eat poultry, but when it comes to pork, fish or my favorite - red meat, I'm the only genuine, 100% carnivorous meat-eater in the bunch. That said, when a copy of Chef Michael Symon's new book arrived... let's just say the cover alone was mouthwatering. Now, publisher Clarkson Potter has teamed-up with The Rock Father™ to give YOU a shot at winning Michael Symon's Playing with Fire: BBQ and More from the Grill, Smoker, and Fireplace plus a Masterbuilt Charcoal Bullet Smoker! It's the perfect way to celebrate the arrival of spring and the coming days with more time spent grilling outside and crafting great meals to share with your family.
As spring approaches, it's not too early to be thinking ahead to late summer - the heart of BBQ season. As those backyard parties really start to get going, looming in the distance is a really big one - and it's turning the "backyard BBQ party" into a full-blown traveling comedy and music festival. Jeff Foxworthy and Larry The Cable Guy have teamed up to create RFD-TV presents Jeff & Larry’s Backyard BBQ Festival, coming to multiple cities this summer, promoted exclusively by Live Nation.
