BJ thoughts on going away to College and what tools High School Students Use To Select Colleges Today. Advice to BJ on where he should go on Spring Break. Also, would BJ join a frat?

Nice to have Dave and Nancy Marciano on the GloucesterCast and how genuine and humble they have stayed.

If any celebrity could walk through the door and hang out with you, who would you choose that celebrity to be?

2016 Gloucester Pride Stride Day

1998 Stainless Steel Craigslist Performer Find Pre-Restore

More from Joey’s BBQ site-

Northeast BBQ

This green SS Performer find is in great shape except for the ash pan assembly.  Everything else I believe can be buffed up to look like new.  I bought it with the intention that if my buddies Craig Kimberley or James Eves didn’t want it I was going to keep it for myself.  But I could not, in good conscious let it sit there and sell to someone who would not appreciate it.  I was secretly hoping neither of them really wanted it so I could keep it for myself but James jumped at the chance and he will be doing the restore.  He promises to send in pics of the project.

The Bowl and lid were in excellent shape. The stainless will clean up beautifully with a  little bartenders keeper.  The frame solid.

I would replace the bolts with stainless but I’m not sure it’s necessary.  The only bad…

Restoring The 2008 @WeberGrills Kettle That Matt Ring Gave Me Last Spring

Featured Image -- 314402

More from Joey’s Pit-

Northeast BBQ

Between this 2008 Weber One Touch Gold and the Smokey Joe Silver I cooked at least 6 times a week all spring/summer/fall of 2015.  They were both long overdue for a thorough cleaning and restoration.  The good thing about Weber kettles is that their finish is so durable, even the worst crud build up and nastiest looking grills can be restored with a little elbow grease and a few inexpensive supplies.

Following the guides from The Weber Kettle Club I picked up a cheap razor scraper that came with 10 extra razor blades and some extra fine #0000 steel wool.  A small flathead screwdriver helped get bits of gunk out of some tiny tough spots.

@WeberGrills Smokey Joe Lower Vent Mod

Featured Image -- 314155

More from Joey’s Pit-

Northeast BBQ

With inspiration and advice from far more mechanically inclined contributors @Bustin Butt and @addicted-to-smoke on the Weber Kettle Club Message board I successfully added a nice lower vent knob to my often used Smokey Joe Grill that I use for lunches at the dock.

First she needed some cleaning from a heavy year of use and neglect in the most brutal of saltwater dock conditions (our lobster company).



After scraping with a razor blade handle to remove the heavy crud, I gave it a good scrubbing with some dish soap and fine steel wool.  This Smokey Joe is pretty banged up already so I didn’t get too crazy but the results are pretty remarkable with only about 40 minutes of elbow grease.

More Cape Ann Dining News-


Discover Gloucester made a splash at the Boston Globe Travel Show, letting potential visitors from all around the state (and beyond) in on what makes Gloucester a tourism destination.

In addition to the booth, which featured fifteen local businesses, Chef Ryder Richie of Latitude 43 drew crowds to the show’s culinary stage for a discussion and cooking demonstration focused on Gloucester-landed seafood.

In the words of the Boston Globe Travel Show’s Chef Duda (of A&E’s Well Seasoned Traveler), “Chef Ryder’s presentation was Four Stars….one of the best of the show.”
