I love sweet potatoes at Thanksgiving! This fresh sweet potato casserole is a new and improved take on my previous sweet potato casserole, that was based on the one from Ruth’s Chris.

It quite possibly is one of the best side dishes that I have ever made. You definitely need to add this Sweet Potato Casserole to your Thanksgiving table!
Our good friends over at Thermoworks have released a new wireless thermometer called “Smoke“. The Smoke is a wireless thermometer that includes two probes. That way, you can wirelessly monitor both the pit and the food. As a barbecuer, this is important. The proper temperature is the difference between delicious bbq and charcoal. Plus, since this is all done wirelessly, you can do it while watching your favorite game or snoozing on the couch. We tested this thermometer while making a nice Honey Garlic Smoked Chicken. The chicken provided approximately 2 hours for us to test the thermometer and check its limits. The thermometer performed flawlessly and actually exceeded expectations. Check out our review below.
