Something productive got done today

Ok, in spite of the fact the UPS fairy delivered a shiny new toy to the house today and no other productive work got done, I did manage to throw together a meal on Bubba Ho-Keg.

And not only was there a nice Santa Maria style tri-tip on the grill, there was some new sauce to try out on top of it.

That’s correct, we scored (ok, purchased) some Big Butz BBQ sauce from our Twitter buddy Tom Porter (y’all might know him better as @BigButzBBQ, stalker of the wild grill). Actually, we got several jars of each flavor; tonight we opened up a jar of original and spooned a little onto the steak after it was sliced up.

Now I know that the steak purists are going to give me a bad time for putting BBQ sauce on a perfectly good steak. Get over it; this particular steak was cooked to order for SWMBO, and she likes her steak cooked a bit more than I care for. Consequently, I don’t feel bad about putting BBQ sauce on the steak.

All that aside, the combination was quite tasty. Original flavor doesn’t have the kick I prefer in a sauce, but it did have a pronounced smoke flavor without being overly sweet or bitter. Good stuff; if you’re in the market for some nice sauce give it a try.

Now I’m going to go play with my new toy some more. I want to see how the glass screen holds up under sticky fingers…
