Live Action Quick Tips

Did you know….

In 2007 Israeli scientists at University of Haifa uncovered evidence that early humans living in the area around Carmel, about 200,000 years ago were serious about barbecue. From bone and tool evidence, these early hunters preferred large mature animals and cuts of meat that had plenty of flesh on them. They left heads and hooves in the field. Three of their favorites were an ancestor of cattle, deer, and boars. From burn marks around the joints and scrape marks on the bones, there is evidence that these cave dwellers knew how to cook.

Early barbecue cooking implements will likely never be found because they were probably made of wood. The first meats were probably just tossed into a wood infereno.

They quickly learned that the food tasted better if the food was held above or to the side of the fire. According to barbecue historian Dr. Howard L. Taylor, the first cooking implements were almost certainly “a wooden fork or spit to hold the meat over the fire.

Eventually they built racks of green sticks to hold the food above the flames, and learned that the temperature was easier to regulate and the flavor better if the if they let the logs burn down to coals before the meat was put in place.(

BBQ Combo Plate, Pizza, Subs

What better way to enjoy a Friday than barbecue and good company!

My comrade Justin Englehaupt and I decided that today would be a perfect day for some barbecue so we journeyed on over to this mystical restaurant of enlightenment called Tasty Subs!

“Uhh Trevis, a place called Tasty Subs doesn’t sound to me like a BBQ spot. Are you falling off your mark?”

“My dear humble friend, while it may seem like that by the name but don’t judge a book by its cover.You curious little thing you…”

Don’t get me wrong this place is known for their pizza and subs and let me say that their pizza is delicious! They even have added Indian dishes to add fusion to their menu.

I haven’t tried it yet but according to Yelp reviews the newly found ingredients to their pizza are delectable and fantastic. I have had Indian fusion pizza before so I can imagine how tasty it is.

Garlic Cheese Bread

Another thing they specialize in is trip tip and barbecue chicken. They have a huge grill outside that they grill the meat on before the lunch hour starts and then it is all uphill from there.

The combo plate consists of Tri Tip, BBQ chicken, side salad, beef chili, garlic bread, and a 20 oz fountain drink all for less than $10.

The sauce in itself is a masterpiece of delicate artistry and the meat is grilled to perfection with enough food on your plate as if it were presented before a King.

Combine that with some cheese oozing, garlic flavored bread and you are truly living life in live action!

They also have a bar and a couple of large flat screens with an inside and outside eating area. Perfect place for lunch and weekend dining! Good job Tasty Subs!

I hope all of you are enjoying your Friday! If you are near a BBQ restaurant then I suggest you  make a trip today or at least sometime this weekend. I promise you won’t regret it!

Thanks for taking the time to join me on today’s adventure. I look forward to seeing you on the next run. Keep hope alive!

Eating is an enjoyable way of life.Live it..Learn it..Love it!
