    Weekend Pork and Flank

    Took advantage of the nice weather this past weekend and did a couple cooks on the kettle. First up was Grilled Sweet and Sour Pork Tenderloin. Main players were the tenderloin, red peppers, fresh pineapple (cut the top off so no one sees the clutter on our counter), and some white onion...

    Skirt and Yard Birds

    A couple weeks ago I was planning to make a family favorite marinated and grilled flank steak. I was picking up a few things at WalMart and as I was walking by the meat case I noticed they had a package of skirt steak for a very good price. I thought I could just as easily use skirt steak...

    Jerk Chicken and Accompaniments

    Our daughter wanted red beans and rice so I built the meal around that. A whole chicken parted, marinated in Walkerswood marinade (can make from scratch, but this is good stuff), red beans and rice, and Jamaican carrots. Not any in-process pics, but the end result was great.

    Anyone from Columbus, OH? - Clippers question

    Anyone on the board from Columbus? We will be heading up to OH in July for a wedding and thinking about attending a Clippers game at the start of the stay. I am wondering if there are any hotels within (safe) walking distance of the stadium. I grew up outside of Columbus, but don't know much...

    Father's Day Oxtails

    I hope all of you fathers out there had a great Father's Day. It was mixed emotions today, my wife and kids gave me a great Father's Day but it was also the first without my dad. Couldn't have asked for a better dad. Anyway, I've been wanting to try Malcolm Reed's smoked oxtail recipe for a...

    Anniversary surf 'n' turf

    The wife and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary Sunday. I proposed to her (no pun intended) that we cook a nice meal at home instead of going out - not a COVID hangup, just figured we could cook a better meal at home. The plan was for a surf 'n' turf meal with some good sides. I bought 3 prime...

    So-So Pic.....but Delicious Salmon

    Grilled some Loch Duart salmon for supper with an asian marinade and sesame rice and salad on the side. Grilled indirect at 400 with Kingsford Pro until it hit 125. I've found that to be my preferred temp for salmon - the internal fat is nicely melted and the fish has a soft texture. My...

    One of these Thanksgivings......

    I'll remember that it always takes longer to thaw my turkey than I think it will.

    Lots 'O Pork

    I would like to solicit opinions on something. My wife has a cousin that over the last couple of years started raising grass-fed beef and, more recently, grass and acorn fed pigs. We bought 1/2 of a pig and picked up the meat yesterday. The pigs came in larger then they originally planned...

    Chris' Peach-Glazed Cornish Hens

    Chris - I made your peach-glazed cornish hen recipe tonight except I used a chicken (had one in the freezer) and my kettle (didn't want to clean out the smoker). It was delicious. We made the SYD rub from your recipe (well, the wife did). This will certainly be in our rotation now. Thanks...

    Father’s Day Eve Pork Chops

    Bought some heritage breed pork chops for supper tonight. I used 1/2 chimney of KBB with a small chunk of apple wood for a little smoke. Seasoned them with a KC-style rub, sauced one and left the other one alone. These were from a local farm and I’ll say they were the best tasting chops I’ve...

    Graduation Ribs

    We started off the weekend with a drive-through high school graduation (thanks Covid). We followed it up with a couple of racks of St. Louis-style ribs. Top one seasoned with Meathead's Memphis dust, the bottom with the original rub recipe from smoking-meat.com After about 3 hours. I...

    Local grass-fed beef?...Well...

    We recently purchased part of a grass-fed cow from a local farm, figuring we could help our local economy. Maybe some of you can give me your experiences, but for now - tonight's cook. The libation of the evening. This is good beer. Sautéed some mushrooms in butter. Yellow squash with...

    Anniversary Prime Ribeyes

    22 years ago today my wonderful and tolerant wife said "I do" and has kept me on the straight and narrow ever since. To celebrate, we smoked and grilled some prime ribeyes. We bought these at a small, local, family grocery. I've never been there before but I'll be going back because they had...

    Meat selection

    Jamie, When it comes to selecting meats to grill do you tend toward "commercial" meats or toward organic/free range? I've started using organic, free range chickens and I find there is a very notable difference in the quality of the meat. The free range chickens don't have as much fat...

    Smoke Day 2018 in NC

    It was a good, albeit wet smoke day in NC. Started with two 7.5 lb pork butts. The one on the left was seasoned with Harry Soo's All-Purpose rub. The one on the right with Meathead's Memphis Dust.. Used my 22" WSM with a full ring of KBB and a handful of hickory chunks. While the...

    Pre-Smoke Day Steaks

    Hey all, It's been quite a while since I've posted any pictures, or posted much of anything for that matter. Work, life, etc. - many things that caused some loss of grilling and smoking enthusiasm. But, I fully intend to revive that desire this Summer. To start the weekend off right we...

    Just some grilled pizza

    This was a repeat dinner for us tonight because the pizzas we grilled Friday night were so good we wanted more. Short comments with a few pictures. Here we go. Some Roma tomatoes, halved, seeded, coated with EVOO, sea salt, pepper to be used for the sauce. Roasted on the kettle with a couple...

    And.....more wings

    I seem to post more pictures of wings than anything. I need to get better at grabbing the camera than grabbing my beer on other cooks....well, maybe better at grabbing both. We decided to have a pretty laid back Sunday this past weekend and tossed some wings on the 18" WSM. Here is how it...

    Butt by Brisket

    There's been a number of posts regarding "brisket over butt" or "butt over brisket". I decided to do a butt BY brisket today....corned beef brisket, that is. I bought one of these a couple of weeks back at the local Wally World, and today being my last day of a long weekend I thought I would...
