Blade Tenderizer from Cave Tools (Review)

You know how sometimes, you eat a steak and it's ridiculously juicy and perfectly spiced? I have marinated before, and we've slow-roasted or smoked meat, but there's something about actually getting those marinades in to the meat. The Cave Tools Blade Tenderizer helps...

Feelin’ Frosty (A poem)

It's that time of the month again when my friends and I link up to write some poetry focused on a central theme. For February, we narrowed it down to "Frosty." I wasn't sure where I wanted to go with this poem. I could write about the weather -- we went through some...

Smoker Box from Cave Tools (Review)

What's more fun than playing in the snow when it's freezing outside? Grilling! Or at least, that's Math Man's opinion. Hand him some meat to put on the grill, a cold one in his hand, and he's a happy boy. When I received the Smoker Box from Cave Tools, it wasn't...
