Dammit Isolder, when I saw the thread title I clicked it looking for some good-old-fashioned gunporn! Sigh.

The recipes look delicious, though. My wife, son and I LOVE Italian garlic bread! We enjoyed some last night, in fact. I'm passing my better half the recipe. Hmm. Now I'm hungry.

Do you have any tasty grill recipes? I have the ribs down cold, but something extra-yummy for beef would be appreciated.

Well my rub is a good place to start for ribs. Sprinkle it on 30 min before grilling for best effect. When I have the time to film it I do plan on doing my steak prep for absolutely perfect home cured and dry aged steaks. When working with meat Kosher salt is your best friend.

PS. There is more then one kind of range, you know. He He.

Home, At The Range, Episode 8: Don't fret, make Zucchini Bread!

In this episode, which took much longer to make then I expected, I will cover making Zucchini and Pumpkin breads. Making Zucchini bread is a great way to put away those squashes for later and they freeze wonderfully! Properly packaged they can last in the freezer for up to 6 months but I've never had them last that long.

Recipe:

Zucchini/Pumpkin Bread

3 Beaten Eggs
1 cup Oil
1 tsp Vanilla
1 cup Sugar(I prefer Brown Sugar)
2 cups Grated Zucchini/Pumpkin
3 cups AP Flour
1 tsp Salt
2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Baking Soda
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 cup Nuts, Raisins, or Chocolate Chips(optional)

Happy Cooking, Everyone!
