Spring Tune-up!
Spring is around the corner and it won’t be long before the sound of baseball bats hitting balls and the smell of food cooking on grills will take over the neighborhoods. So, don’t wait for a grilling or smoking day to get your equipment spring ready. In several areas of the country these vessels of pleasure have been hibernating all winter. Break them out and get to scrubbing. 
For many it means tuning up that gas grill. This will go a long way and avoid frustration later in the spring and summer. It’s a good idea to wash it down inside and out. I like to replace old grates with new ones, normally they are not very expensive. At the very least, scrub the grates and wash them down. It’s also a good idea to clean the gas ventures with a tiny venture brush and examine your burners. Burners with large corroded gaps in them will cause uncontrollable flames and hot spots. Most importantly after cleaning and reassembling is to check for gas leaks. Always use the manufacturer’s recommendations for any of these tips.
Now, if you have a smoker the same applies. For basic smokers it is super important to clean, clean, clean. Wash it down and get rid of all the trapped grease in the bottom that so often accumulates.  Clean the fire box and get rid of all old ashes. Exercise all the air vents. I also like to lightly sand the outside of a steel smoker and repaint it with high temperature paint, usually black. If you have one of the higher tech smokers, then please follow the manufacturer’s recommendation. One thing is constant and that is usually a clean grill and smoker will help you execute more consistent masterpieces.
Besides the grill and smoker don’t forget about the other tools and gadgets. Get a supply of batteries for those thermometers that require them and check them for proper operation. Check all your grilling tools. It is a good idea to put them in a separate storage bin so that you’re not digging around for your grilling and smoking tools every time you go to cook.  Buy yourself a new tool or gadget just for fun and experiment on new methods of cooking this year. While you’re at it, get yourself a really cool apron and some awesome BBQ  products from

No one would have guessed that in 1994, a group of FedEx co-workers would come together to create a BBQ team that would grow into a family. Ultimately becoming an award-winning company (OVER 25 YEARS & MOST RECORD MEMPHIS IN MAY WINS) whose owners are as diverse as our flavor is unique.

Porkosaurus began with only a handful of members who equally enjoyed barbecue and camaraderie. After many backyard barbecues with family and friends, we decided to throw our hats into the competitive barbecue ring. Our newly created team quickly learned that cooking in the backyard was vastly different from the competitive barbeque. *Who knew? Determined to master the competitive circuit, our hodgepodge group confidently cooked, pigged out, reflected, learned and repeated. 
We even analyzed our competitors by devouring all the bbq we could get our claws on. (For Science...) Through these other competitors, we learned the secrets of low and slow cooking.
Over time our enthusiasm inspired both friends and more co-workers to join our team. What started as a local team in Memphis and grew nationally and internally.
