Cowboy Wisdom Book Review/Giveaway

 The Era of great Cowboy wisdom may seem gone, but some of its words live forever in this collection of  200+ quotes, jokes, wise words and humor of the book, "Cowboy Wisdom" by Gerd De Ley.
  Some of these words written in the book come from John Wayne, Gene Autry and Will Rodgers.  One of my favorite sayings is : "Never play cards with a man called Doc" by Nelson Algren.  Well, we all know that's true.   Will Rodgers gave the advice to "Never Kick a cow chip on a hot day." This makes great sense.

BBQ Tools - Cave Tools

   Cave Tools never lets you down on their amazing tools for cooking.  I recently reviewed the Pulled  Pork Shredder Rakes and they are excellent for lifting that hot pork butt off the grill and then shredding it is even easier.  These rakes don't bend and they can also be used to hold the food in place while cutting or carving.
