Get It On (the map)

Have you got a favorite BBQ joint? Who doesn't... right? Well, get in on the map and see it here on the website.

Just give me its name and tell me a little about it. And of course, tell me where it is (at least the city and state). You can even send in a picture if you want.

When you're done, just click the "Brag On It" button. I will put it on the map for all the world to see.

Editor's Qs

Does piercing meats with a fork cause them to dry out?

No, not really... unless, of course, you repeatedly poke it.

Yes, it does lose a little moisture when you pierce it with a fork. Sometimes you can even see a trickle of liquid run out too. But meat is not really like a water balloon that would lose all of its moisture if pierced.

This is one of those debates in cooking that almost rivals the question of "What is BBQ?". But meat, though, is not like a water balloon. Actually you could think of it as having millions of little water balloons.

When you pierce a piece of meat with a fork, you may damage some of those tiny balloons (or muscle cells) but only in the area damaged by the fork. It isn't enough to affect the moisture level of the entire piece meat.

But don't overdo it, though. Repeatedly poking the meat or slicing into it will definitely release moisture from the damaged areas.

The Challenge Continues.

I don't want to give you the idea that I can't be stumped, but... let's see what happens.

All the Best
