nwafoodie Dadgum thats good book masterbuilt


*** Winners update:  Lucky #6, Christy, and lucky #9, Ally, have both won a signed cookbook!  Christy, your husband is going to love you for this and Ally, maybe your marinated and grilled veggie salad will be in his next cookbook??? Congrats you two, and thanks John McLemore for taking care of us! ***

Isn’t this a fun week of giveaways?

Welcome to Day 4 of nwafoodie’s annual anniversary week of giveaways!  We are more than half way through a week of daily giveaways, as my way of thanking you for being my blogfriend. I think you will enjoy Day 1, 2, and 3, if you haven't already checked them out.

Today’s gift comes courtesy of John McLemore, chef and author of two smoking, frying, and grilling cookbooks titled,  DADGUM That’s Good and DADGUM That’s Good, Too!”  You might think that cookbooks with a phrase like that would be, well, no-so-foodie.  Wrong you would be!  After his team contacted me about his cookbook, I immediately looked into it and realized it is just the missing cookbook I need on my bookshelf.  I asked for extras because it just might be yours, too.  Are you into grilling?  How does Balsamic Rib-Eye Steak Sandwiches sound?  Or Grilled Peaches and Plums with Honey-Citrus?  Are you into frying?  Thanksgiving is just around the corner and you KNOW this is the year you are going to do that deep-fried turkey.  How about a recipe called Garlic and Herb Deep-Fried Turkey?  Are you into smoking?  THIS is going to be my new Fall/Winter food technique!  How awesome does Smoked Chicken Tenders, Smoked Mac & Cheese sound?  There is even a recipe from Arkansas own Governor Mike Huckabee’s Smoked Tenderloin. If you are on Pinterest, John has pinned a bounty of recipes and ideas on his boards.

Full Disclosure:   I received my very own copy of this cookbook (and yes, it is awesome!!) and two Arkansas Razorback lapper trays for tail-gaiting (I gave these to my friend Rachel's son, Colton, who is a crazy hog fan).  But wait, there's more... I even got a special treat when he was in town for the Cabella's grand opening day.  I got treated to breakfast with him and Alicia McGlamory, Marketing Guru for Masterbuilt (John is CEO).  They were so completely personable, that I am now a loyal fan to their company and the grilling, smoking, frying products they make.  Okay, maybe not frying (that's just not who I am) but smoking - yes!  John and Alicia surprised me with a Masterbuilt Electric Smoker.  Let's just say that I plan to share with you exactly how easy it is to smoke (and yes, use his recipes as a guide and create my own, of course).  Now, if I could just finish remodeling my home and move in so I can get started.  Stay tuned...

    1. Yum and yes! Grilling is so easy -- keep it going throughout the fall and winter, too!

    1. Me, too! I have smoked before and it was fun. Can't wait to try out the smoker and see how easy it is!

  3. My husband usually does the grilling, but I prep the meat and veggies. I don't really fry anything, but eggs and bacon. We've had a green egg for 13 years and have never used it as a smoker.

    So...I guess the answer is grilling or is it I need the cookbook to learn. Randomizer may actually answer this one.

    1. At the very least, go to www.dadgumthatsgood.com and browse the free recipes (and the pinterest page, too!)

  4. Pick me, pick me randomizer. I prefer grilling, rarely fry anything, but would be willing to come to nwaFoodie's house for some cooking lessons.

    1. Oooo, that would be awesome! Except that I cannot teach frying because I've never done it before. Grilling, yes. Smoking? Soon! Maybe I will create video lessons... or, just come down here and we can do video lessons together. Deal?

  6. I'm more of an inside the house "cooker", but not a lot of frying. My husband is a griller. I love his grilled corn on the cob.

    1. It must be a really special corn on the cob. Your husband needs this book because he would like it. I read the recipe titles to my husband and he really did get excited!

  11. I am quite possibly the WORST griller in the world. We are impatient. Have no skill. Terrible. But maybe, just maybe we could get better at it!

    1. We should have a 'worst griller in the world contest' -- Do you have a gas grill? That would help! I hope you win this book because you will be inspired by the ease of grilling. Good luck Jackie girl!

  12. I absolutely love to grill! I'm not very good at it, but I love doing it! Usually, I can't get my charcoal to light up. But, hands down, steak is my favorite thing to grill.

    Replies
    1. Awhhh... but just the fact that you are using charcoal and not gas is impressive. I use gas because it is convenient but reallly want to make the switch. You go, girl!

  13. I also facebooked this, but it's not letting me tag you!

    1. That's okay! It just means we aren't following each other... go ahead and follow me and I will follow you!

  14. I love grilling. And surprisingly, one of my favorite things to grill are chicken wings...impossible to screw up. Believe me, I've tried.
