We’ve been shopping for WiFi/Cloud-based BBQ Thermometers. Lots of interesting products out there on the market. But nothing motivates us more than top-notch engineering, excellent customer service, and yes, a DEAL! This recent review from ManMeatBBQ.com tipped the scales for us in favor of Tappecue.
Seeing a lot of great bacon wrapped creations out there lately. Probably the most common is a bacon weave on trimmed, injected, and/or brined pork loin.
Here’s a quick and good video tutorial from RustedTruckRanchBBQ:
Short answer: It didn’t exist yet. At least, not under that name. And if you were eating “flat iron steak,” as beef, it was in ground hamburger. The cut was a throwaway. Enter meat research and development.
Wait. You’re asking yourself, how does Rendezvous BBQ know this? Funny you should ask. We discovered this article on innovations in beef cuts from Atlas Obscura while looking for flat iron steak recipes. Yep. We were futzing around for recipes — and BAM — unlocked level five in the meat game. Got to love Google.
Who knew there was such a thing as “meat science,” complete with university scientists and industry researchers with (we imagine) lab benches and grills at butcher houses? And the even better news? The research goes on, and they may find more tasty cuts!
Read the entire Atlas Obscura article, “How Meat Science (And Marketing) Gave the World the Flat Iron Steak.” If you’re a serious Meathead, it’s worth your time.

One of the things we always look forward to when we eat out at PF Changs are their chicken lettuce wraps. So savory, tangy, and fresh. Another favorite pastime of ours is trying to recreate restaurant-quality (or better) dishes at home!
This is our tenth or so attempt at perfecting PF Chang’s lettuce wraps at home, and they really do just keep getting better and better.
