    Bacon Weirdness

    Had some weirdness occur when curing my last pork belly. Using Bob's recipe I did the prep and the cure over this past week. After a day or so, I noticed I couldn't see much moisture in the bag collecting from the curing piece of meat. This was the second piece of the original belly which I...

    Red Beans with Rice and Sausage

    I really enjoy cooking beans on the grill this time of year. Here is my offering using Small Red Beans. Soaked one pound of beans for 8 hours. Got most of my ingredients together and prepped. Here's a funny side note. Here's my tray out at the grilling area. You'll see two yellow cups...

    Saturday Night Pizza

    Haven't been too active on the grilling/qing front lately. Decided to bust out of the funk and fire up the Kettle Pizza. Made three balls of Rich G's Caputo/AP pizza dough a couple of days ago. This cook was kind of a half bubble off for me all evening. Should have pulled my dough out of the...

    You Guessed It, More Wings and ABT's

    It was kind of an odd Super Bowl day. I had a problem with my satellite provider and lost the CBS feed the moment the game began. Black out restrictions would not allow the game to be viewed. :mad: Fortunately I had the CBS Sports App on my phone and that is how I ended up watching the...

    Frijoles Barracho and Cornbread

    These beans and cornbread sounded really good, especially with the weather we've been having. Here's a few pictures for both. Soaked a pound of dry pinto beans for around 8 hours. Brought the beans up to a full boil. Then dropped them down to a low simmer for 2 1/2 hours. Transferred...

    Poblano and Sour Cream Enchiladas

    Saw this recipe and had to give it a try. Haven't been too active on the grill lately so I stretched this out over a couple of days. Didn't have anything boneless and skinless so I just used a whole chicken. Made it a roto cook and seasoned the bird well under the skin. Used Oakridge's...

    Christmas Rib Roast Long Overdue

    This is a rib roast I'd purchased in January of this year. It had originally been purchased for a family gathering that never took place. After much thought and advice from some of you I decided to celebrate our Christmas by cooking it. It's an 8.1 lb. roast. I thought it was Select but...

    Toss or Cook?

    Merry Christmas everyone. Hope you are all well and having a great day. I thought I'd get your input on tonight's (maybe) dinner. I have an 8 lb. rib roast that's been in the freezer since January of this year. With the current state of affairs I never pulled it out as it's too large for the...

    Working Towards Some Bacon

    Haven't done much with the grills or smokers lately. I picked up a pork belly at Costco a couple of weeks ago. Split it into thirds and cured one of the pieces with TQ. (Bob's recipe) Got it on my 18" WSM on Sunday and let it roll for around 5 hours. Here's a couple of quick photos. Five...

    Gobble Gobble

    Well, like so many others, we downsized our Thanksgiving this year to just the two of us. I'd picked up an 8.7 lb. turkey breast a couple of weeks ago and lined out the sides. Here's a few pictures of our meal. I made the pumpkin pie on Wednesday to free up some hectic time on Thursday...

    Prime Beef Short Ribs from Creekstone Farms

    I received these from Creekstone Farms a couple of weeks ago while they were on sale. I've been waiting for a good day to fire up the WSM and yesterday was the day. There were two racks, four bones each. I pulled what I thought was the nicer of the two racks and resealed the other. I was...

    Lazy Day, Lazy Burgers

    Was plowing through the freezer and found a little bag of 80/20 and a small chunk of brisket flat. Thawed them, ran the flat through the grinder a couple times and mixed them together. Set up the grills for a quick burger cook. Also found a couple partial bags of Lamb Weston fries, one was...

    Pork Loin Back Ribs to Kick Off the Week

    Felt like giving my 18" WSM a run and I had a rack of back loin ribs in the freezer. We're getting a little more rain today so yesterday was the day. Made a small potato salad and some grilled brocolli to round things out. Here's my pictures. I've used almost exclusively Swift baby backs...

    Fall Pot Roast

    We're supposed to get our first rain early morning tomorrow. Thought I'd get another wintery cook in before it comes in. I picked up a 2.7 lb. chuck roast last week and went with pot roast. Rubbed it down with a beef rub I ordered from Hey Grill Hey and got it on the 18" WSM running at a...

    Beef Chili with Brisket

    We've been having chilly evenings and mornings and Chili sounded really good. I picked up a 3 lb. chunk of brisket at the store a few days ago. It was mostly flat meat and wasn't quite as fatty as I was hoping, but it worked fine. Here's the pictures. Cubed the meat and then ran it through...

    Wings Over My Potatoes

    Thawed about 4 lbs. of full wings yesterday. Haven't had them on the grill in quite a while and my wife suggested I fix that. Made some Parmesan Potato Wedges (another cook from the Bullet) to go along side. Got the Russet wedges going. A little oil and some AP rub and the parmesan. A...

    Pork Chops and Dirty Rice

    I've been saving up recipes for the past two or three months and Pork Chops and Dirty Rice immediately caught my eye, probably the latter! :D Here's some pic's. Aside from the obvious items there's fresh thyme, cajun seasoning, long grain rice, garlic, scallions, onion, red bell pepper...

    Darned Good Chicken, Hot and Fast

    Well, November 3rd and still no rain. The weather has improved with colder evenings, much better humidity and no wind. Decided to fire up the WSM and JJ. I'm stuck on Chris's Hot and Fast Chicken. Went a little caveman and cooked my potatoes wrapped in foil and buried in the coals. Rounded...

    Back to the Grill Brats

    Haven't done a cook for several weeks now due to the horrible fire conditions here on the west coast. We just got through our second safety power outage in one week. I decided to stick my toe in the water and do a simple, easy little cook. I grilled up some brats and finished them off in a...

    Patty Melts with Parmesan Potato Wedges

    I was really in the mood for both and I thought it would be a good kick off for the holiday weekend, in spite of all the dense smoke we've been having from the numerous fires burning right now. Here's a few photos. Needed some Rye bread for the Patty Melts. Nice rusty, crunchy crust on this...
