Monthly Archives: December 2017


The last time I made a Christmas stocking was when Alex was a baby. I miss knitting and was determined to at least get one started for Charlotte. It’s been a long time since I turned a heel on stocking or sock, but thanks to Monique Jean at Coveted Yarn, she showed me just how to do it (Monique made nine Christmas stocking this year for her family). While she was helping decipher the directions, I couldn’t help but think how fortunate are we in Gloucester to have such a fantastic yarn shop, which is not only always stocked with gorgeous yarns, but staffed with a super knowledgeable person such as Monique. Many thanks to Monique for her gracious help!

Monday and Thursday 10 AM to 9:00 PM

Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday 10 AM to 6 PM

Saturday 10 AM to 5 PM

Sunday 12 PM to 5 PM

@PKGrills #PK360 Setup For Two Full Racks Of Ribs

Northeast BBQ

Prepped the St Louis pork ribs by first trimming off the silverskin membrane, light slather of mustard to hold the rub and then hit it with my pork rub.

Placed 10 briquettes in the chimney to get going and dumped on one corner of the unlit coals and sprinkled on some cherry wood for smoke.  Put down a sheet of tin foil and aluminum trays on the charcoal grate under where the ribs will be placed on the opposite side of the grill from the coals.  Fill the foil pan a quarter of the way with warm water to help retain a moist smoking environment.  The foil will keep the bottom of  the grill easy to clean from the fat drippings that will render throughout the low and slow cooking session.
