Custom Home Pubs connects to help feed the hungry

I hope you had a great July 4th weekend with family and friends in the spirit of Thomas Jefferson’s words "Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Our pursuit of happiness over the weekend was with a few of my wife’s side of the family, her Dad Richard, our sister in-law Cheryl and nephew Logan. Before gathering with family for the weekend, Tammy and I kicked off the holiday with an outing to Custom Home Pubs (CHP), Thursday night, for a beer tasting with appetizers to benefit a local non-profit restaurant, Kings Kitchen. I thought the event was a very creative idea to connect CHP customers, mainly people that enjoy high quality modern and vintage keg gear and craft draft beer with a non-profit restaurant and bakery which has a strong reputation for creating jobs, training unemployed in the food industry and feeding men, women and children in shelters in the Charlotte area. Custom Home Pub 2 The selections of craft bear on tab was very diverse and included: The seafood mini cakes and deviled eggs were the highlight of the pub finger food offerings while the “pulled BBQ”, chopped almost to a spread, was not my cup of tea (note: however, I can be a bit of a BBQ snob). I could not tell by taste if the BBQ was chicken or pork without asking a server. However, the event was a great success sold out to standing room only.

Last Saturday I enjoyed grilling for one of my favorite family gatherings, a birthday party, and grilled Moonshine Brine Pork Chops by request to go with cooked vegetables and salad prepared by my wife. Give Moonshine Brine Pork Chops a test drive and you will be in for a treat. The loin cuts are where we get pork chops from the pig and the filet mignon from beef. This cut from high on the back of the pig is also the source for the phrase “living a little higher on hog” in contrast to the cheaper cuts like Boston butt, picnic ham and bacon found a little lower on the animal.

Rubbing the pork
Rubbing the pork

A long time friend living in Nashville  emailed me today and suggested I give people a little more, step by step, detail on just how I like to rub, smoke and sauce pork BBQ.  So, here we go!  I will go over my five to ten minute prep on the day before putting the meat on the actual smoker. Day 1 BBQ Prep 1. Simply tear open a five ounce, net weight, bag of Fire of Coals Pork Rub  and pour the contents in a large pan (or, about 1/3 of a pound bag). No measuring cups or spoons are needed.
