BBQ and safety from the fire department

Cooking can be a dangerous sport. Knife cuts, scalding water splashes, oven burns, you name it. But by far the most dangerous practice is barbecuing — literally setting your food on fire. To help you not kill yourself, your kids, or your pets this summer with your grill, the San Antonio Fire Department is giving out fire safety and grilling tips on Sunday, June 24 at the second annual Firefighter Q Off. Teams of firefighters will be competing for best barbeque at the Hyatt Regency downtown starting at 2 p.m. Attendees get to try the barbecue samples, learn about grilling safety, and enter to win prizes. Sales of raffle tickets, cookbooks, and sundry cooking items will benefit the Texas Burn Survivor Society.

Rumor has it that the Blue Star Brewery is shaking things up a bit. With new head chef Charles Clark (formerly sous chef at Restaurant Gwendolyn) and sous chef Chris Cullum (owner of the Attaboy Burgers food truck) in the kitchen, Blue Star will be serving house-cured meats, dishes with beer pairing suggestions, and possibly a tasting menu. Keep an eye out for big changes.
