Arizona Sonoran Dog

Tucson, Arizona is a hotspot for the Sonoran Hotdog. We actually spent a couple of weeks well north of Tucson, near Petrified Forrest National Park, in Holbrook, AZ. It was a challenging two weeks, weather-wise. The first week was a nice 70 degrees outside, with no wind. The next...

Utah Pastrami Burger

Utah is a magical place. We set up camp about 40 miles north of Moab, in the ghost town of Thompson Springs. It’s a quiet place, with a few campgrounds and a gas station off of I-70. The views are spectacular, with red-clay mountains and desert surrounding you. It’s...

Pulled Pork Stuffed Idaho Potatoes

Blackened Montana Trout Tacos

We are spending a month just outside of Glacier National Park, in Montana. This area is like a dream. Every bend in the road opens up to a breath-taking sight. The “Going to the Sun” road is a jaw-dropping visual that is just impossible to really describe. Nature is...

Traveling Kettle Wings

This week we are settling in to the RV park here in Hermosa, South Dakota. This area of the country is beautiful! And in mid-June, the mild weather is a welcoming addition. It’s a good idea to rinse the wings and pat dry. We seasoned the wings with some...

The Best Grill for Travel

When we started traveling full-time, over a year and a half ago, I bequeathed my beloved Weber kettle grill to my sister. I figured it would be too cumbersome to pack, haul and set up. You know, with all the charcoal, the chimney, and just figuring out where to...

Burnt Ends-Houston, TX

Ah, Texas. The home of smoked brisket, a beef lovers paradise! We are here in the Houston area for a month or so. A trip to Houston would not be complete without a visit to the Johnson Space Center, home of NASA. We had a great visit, exploring the...
