    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

  • Get Your Grill Ready For Spring!



    Now that we have some decent weather, take some time and get your outdoor grill ready. There are so many great foods to slap on the grill that will surely fill you up after a long day at work. Here are the 8  Essentials Grilling Tips from the Pros:

    1. Mopping

    Mopping is a technique that involves slathering sauce onto the cooking meat with a large basting brush, which adds flavor, makes skin crisp, and, when layered over the rub, creates a nice bar—the flavorsome crust that develops during the cooking process. According to Amy Mills Tunnicliffe, co-author of Peace, Love & Barbecue (Rodale, 2005), "Mopping adds surface flavor, it's not penetrating. But when you pull pork butt, you're mixing the bark with the internal meat, which is fabulous."

    2. Crisping Chicken Skin

    We learned this method of removing fat from chicken skin in order to produce a remarkably crisp result from competition barbecue champion George "Tuffy" Stone. "Peel the skin carefully from the thigh or breast, and use a knife to scrape most of the fat off the underside until the skin becomes somewhat translucent," instructs Stone. "Then drape the skin back over the thigh or breast, and tuck it under the meat. When it cooks, the skin will become crisp."
    3. Spraying With Apple Juice
    Tunnicliffe sometimes sprays meat with apple juice every hour or so while it cooks, to keep the surface moist and to add additional flavor. "Meat sweats when it cooks; it opens up and absorbs whatever's on top of it," she says. "That's a good time to spray."
