RANTS: From 2007 to 2008

2007 is over. Long live 2008.

Last year was one of learning what and where we want this blog to be. We started off slow but I believe that we made strides in finding an identity. This year will be a time of growth and implementation.

You can look for the following new segments and changes to existing formats:

Sauce Reviews: When applicable, sauce reviews will have a ‘spice it up’ feature where I will discuss what I would add to the sauce being reviewed to help personalize it.

Contests: We will be holding contests for our readers where they can win cook books, sauces and more.

On-site Competitions
: Different sauces (and maybe rubs) will be pitted against each other to determine which sauce (or rub) will reign supreme. Run similar to a single elimination draft, we will end up with the premier sauce (or rub) for 2008.

Behind the Scenes: We will be parting the curtain and taking a look behind the scenes at various facets of the BBQ culture. How do you run a competition? How do you bring a sauce to market? What goes into writing a cookbook?

We have a lot in store for 2008 and hope that you will be along for the ride.
