    A perfect summer Sunday dinner!

    Finishing off a weekend full of pickling and canning quarts of bread and butter and pints of zucchini relish. Tri-tip on the Weber. Also having fun testing out White River Knives new step up fillet for them. So far very impressed with it. Trimming and boning are a breeze. Need to really put...

    Sunday Patty Melts

    Had some chorizo left over from stuffing and I wondered what to do with it. Decided on making a little different patty melt. Bacon around the outside then a layer of ground beef followed by the chorizo and cheese. More chorizo. More beef. Perfect with the pretzel buns and salad with...

    Spring is finally here

    Finally had a weekend where it wasn't raining, the temp was over 50, and I didn't have a crap ton of running around to do. It felt outstanding to just have a Sunday to do what I wanted. Bottled up 16 Imperial pints of orange chocolate Porter (Yes, I know, not really a summer beer but it's...

    Sunday Braided Pork Loin

    Lots to do this weekend but the weather was nice enough that I had to get at least the gasser working. I trimmed and split a pork loin into 2 fillets and brined in a little TQ and water. The first one was coated in Sweet Baby Ray's and the second in Sriracha. It was great off the...

    Cold day for smoking

    - 7 when I put these in the MES-30. Running 275 with my own rub over maple chunks. We will see how long it takes. I think the high for today in my part of the Mitten is 5 degrees.

    Christmas Finker

    Bacon Grease Gingersnaps!

    My son moves into his dorm tomorrow and his mother asked him if he wanted any homemade goodies to take with him. He told her that he wanted "those bacon grease cookies". As she was making them I decided that they are just to good not to share and I know many folks on here are always looking for...

    Homemade Vienna

    Sometimes it's hard to beat the simple things. Some homemade Vienna sausages on the grill. Onions, homemade pub mustard and some slaw. That hit the spot! Except my wife put catsup all over hers! But I still love her. I guess.

    It Begins!

    Oh boy! The excitement and anxiety of the big cook. Once again it's time for the big annual BBQ my wife and I host. Someone sometime dubbed it the Festival Of Meat and that's what it has become. 7 pound brisket and 10 pound butt are on! So much more to follow.

    Stuffed Onions

    I was getting things out of the freezer to thaw for the big BBQ this weekend and I kept chasing a pack of chorizo around. Inspiration struck. Stuffed Onions! I cut the top and bottom off of a couple Vidalias and cut partway into them to separate layers off. I used a smaller piece to make a...

    Braided Pork Loin

    Thank you @mneeley490 for this great idea! Saw your belly post and someone mentioned doing it with pork loin. I'm not the biggest fan of belly (except for you bacon, you will always be tops). But pork loin. Now you're talking. Test driving the idea for making it for the Festival Of Meat next...

    Devilled Tri-tip

    One of the things I smoked for the 4th was a big Tri-tip and I had about a pound left over. Gears started turning. Always loved devilled ham growing up and have been making it out of my back bacon heels for a while now. Great stuff. Idea. Devilled Tri-tip. Ran it through the fine plate on the...
