So this last weekend was awesome. Kishelle and I got to go the Tacoma to spend the day at the Gray Skies Blues Festival. For those of you who don't know I am really big into the blues as well as hip hop. Some might thing that they are on opposite sides of the spectrum but they are very similar. Check this out if you want so see them together. Anyways there was a ton of good music and I got to hang with my family which I really enjoy. So take a look and let me know what you think.

So if you didn't know I am big into cooking. I have been doing it for about a decade 5-6 nights a week and seriously, I love it more than everything (except you babycakes you're my whole world). My favorite method of cooking is, by far, barbecuing. There is nothing like cooking meat with fire. I have been experimenting for years and have determined the only way to barbecue is slow and low. Much like the Beastie Boys I am a fan of this method and it is in fact the tempo.

When you are going to be cooking something for 3-12 hours you are going to need a good rub to not only seal in the moisture but to make a good bark on the outside of whatever you are cooking. Here is my personal favorite that I have been working on for a while let me know what you think. It makes quit a bit so you should be set for a bit.

Christian's All Around Dry Rub
1 Cup - Kosher Salt
1/2 Cup - Pepper (preferably course ground)
1/2 Cup - Granulated Garlic
1 Cup - Brown Sugar or Turbinado Sugar
1/4 Cup - Paprika
1/4 Cup - Onion Powder
1/4 Cup - Chili Powder
2 TBS - Ground Mustard (the Asian stuff is the best)
2 TBS - Oregano
2 TBS - Celery Seed
2 TBS - Ground Ginger
1/4 Cup - Cumin
1 - 3 TBS - Cayenne Pepper (depending on how hot you like it)
2 TSB - Ground Coriander
1 TSB - Ground Tumeric

I use this on pretty much everything I put on the barbeque and it works pretty good for me. Let me know what you think and if you have any questions.

So I didn't get to take too many pictures last weekend so I didn't do a post. This weekend however I got to experience a couple of things. First 3rd Annual International Pillow Fight which took place at Westlake on Saturday. It was pretty cool there was live music and about 100 people bashing each other with pillows. It was an interesting experience. Then it was our friends birthday as well which I got a few good shots. Then Sunday was Easter and even though I am not a believer I still think it's a good day to get together with your family. We also got to hang out with Kishelle's friend's family and they were super cool. Anyways take a look and let me know what you think. Hope you all had a nice holiday.
