We were on TV!
If you’re new here, welcome! Let me give you a little background. My name is Mary and I’m a wine, food, and travel writer. I am a columnist for Palate Press, contributor to Wine4.Me, and have freelanced for several publications. You can check out this page for more about me. Sean is the pitmaster and my partner in all things barbecue and life.
Although we don’t discriminate against food styles around here, we’ve always had an affinity towards grilled and smoked food. Several years ago Sean bought his first smoker, a Traeger pellet grill, and I was instantly transformed from a vegetarian into a meat-eating smoked-food believer.
About a year and a half ago Sean started a series on this here blog – BBQ Corner – to share BBQ and grilling tips and tidbits along with favorite recipes. He started becoming more and more obsessed passionate about barbecue. Shortly after that we purchased The Beast, a Yoder offset smoker trailer, and started entering BBQ competitions and catering events (have we gone mad?!).
Since then we’ve focused primarily on wood fired cooking, sharing our favorite recipes here on this blog. And since my focus is on wine (cheers!), we always offer wine recommendations with each recipe. But this blog isn’t entirely about barbecue and smoked foods. In addition to delicious recipes and wine information, you’ll also find travel stories and tidbits, photos, and adventures from the Pacific Northwest (where we live) with our twin boys. Yes, they also make an appearance here from time to time.
Those very nachos are what we got the opportunity to cook up for the crew at AM Northwest. It was such a cool experience!
Prepping for our cooking demo, trying to not look so nervous!
Since then exciting things have been happening in our little world of barbecue and events. I hope you’ll stick around to read more.
If you’re just getting started you can check out the recipe index for a list of some of the recipes published on this site. You can also check out the BBQ Corner Page for tips and information about grilling and barbecue.
If you just want to see our cooking segment on AM Northwest you can find it below or by clicking HERE.
Thanks so much to AM Northwest for having us on the show! We hope to do it again sometime soon.
If you want to hang around and learn more I’d love it if you subscribe to Vindulge and have new posts delivered directly to your inbox. I promise we won’t spam you with too much (like I said I have twin boys and writing jobs outside of this blog that consume much of my time!).
