Lotta Bull BBQ Class Review

Last week I had the privilege of being able to embark on a little 2400 mile BBQ journey through Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas. There are a lot of stories to tell and I will cover the whole trip through multiple blogs. For this blog post I want to focus in on the Lotta Bull BBQ Competition class in Thackerville OK!

How to Make Beef and Broccoli

Many times when I cook a good sized brisket, I have left overs. At times it can get boring eating the same thing over and over, so I decided to try and give the brisket a completely different flavor.

What I came up with, was a simple delicious meal. It turned out really well, but if you have any suggestions on how to improve it I would appreciate it.
