Big D's Pizza and BBQ

Check out the link on the right hand side to our leading retailer of BBQ rub. This place is selling it like hotcakes. And damn well they should, because its Dan Mc's shop. Stop over to get a pizza, try some great BBQ or just pick up some rub.

If you want a special treat, ask fr the 3Eyz BBQ platter!

Enjoy :)


So let me paint the picture.......

We drove 18hrs to get down to North Little Rock Arkansas. 3 of us, Chris, Daniel P and Dan H took 2 days off of work to go and compete against the best BBQ cooks in the world. And this wasn't just for bragging rights, this was the worlds richest bbq competition..... $100,000.00 in total prize money. This was, for lack of a better description, the shit. This was THE event, the time you want to shine.

So fast forward to Saturday morning. Everything was going ridiculously smooth. The smoker, hit its stride after 5 months of inactivity flawlessly. Temps were rock solid, meats were on target. The weather? Simply amazing. Chris and Daniel were well rested after a night in the hotel, Dan H, not in bad shape without having to fight the smoker. In a word, things were PERFECT.

So, it was quite the shock when a bit after 10am, the chicken (which had been meticulously trimmed, marinated, rubbed and shaped) hit the ground. All of it hit the ground, every piece. And the ground, no, it wasn't grass, nor dirt, nor pavement, but gravel! Without missing a beat, Dan H (who had been the one loading the chicken int the smoker) called for water, lots of it. In perfect sync, the members of 3eyz bbq rinsed, scrubbed, rinsed, scrubbed, rinsed, washed, dried, rubbed, shaped, and replaced the chicken on the rack. Time from ground to smoker? 12 minutes flat.

And it actually turned out good. 84th of out 238 teams. Overall, we finished 34. The lesson on this one? No, I'm not telling you to drop your chicken. But do not freak out, don't give up, don't throw in the towel. Make it work, no matter what.

The best part? Our neighbors gave us a bottle of rub. Written on the duct tape label was "3eyz chicken rub". In the bottle? You guessed it........gravel. I love BBQ people :)

A terrible discovery....

For those of you that haven't tried top shelf liquor - DON'T. Why? Well, once you taste a tequila like Patron, its impossible to go back to Cuervo. I tried last night, you know, to save money.....

Next time I think I'm going to do that, I'll save money by not buying anything. Ugghhh, nasty.

So, the lesson is, only go for those higher price bottles if your going to stay with those, otherwise, everything else is going to taste like crap.

Sorry, had to get that off my chest.....

OK, so there has been a lack of posts recently. My bad. But what do you expect? I mean, it is the off season after all. That will soon be changing though as Little Rock is only a couple weeks away!

We are gearing up and will be ready to roll soon. And the team is restructured. What the heck does THAT mean? Hmmm, not ready to say. But rest assured, its a good thing! I will say this, the "official" unvailing will be in Salisbury, MD.

I've updated the website, and have 75% of the 2010 season listed. Looking like a total of 18 contests, man thats a lot of work.

So.....check back for updates, they will be rolling again!
