    Smoked Salmon Pizza

    I was watching one of my favorite shows the other day, Rachle Ray's 30 Minute Meals, and saw a great recipe. She did a smoked salmon pizza that would be a great use of any leftover salmon you may have. Or simply smoke a salmon filet for this purpose. Anyway, here is the link to the recipe on...

    Brining Venison?

    Ben and I have decided to christen the new smoker this weekend by doing a couple of deer roasts. Normaly we soak a deer roast in a couple of changes of water to get all the blood out and help with any gamey taste (though when your eating these corn fed MO deer there's hardly any gamey taste...

    Stuffed Baked Apples

    Even though I serve this as a dessert I'm going to put it here in the fruit section, since it can also be a side item or appitizer I suppose.

    Bourban Mustard Dipping Sauce

    I found a new favorite for pork this weekend. It's a Bourbon Mustard dipping sauce, we used it on the pork loin we smoked and it was very tasty. I've also used this in the past with my fireside sausage wraps. It's so easy, just take about a 1/4 cup of spicy mustard, 1/4 cup of honey, and 1 to...

    Question about Brisket

    As I know there are some brisket lovers out there I'm hoping I get good response to my question. I was pondering the meat case the other day and saw something new to me. It was a partial brisket. I'm used to seeing them whole, usually a packer cut. This however looked more like someone had...

    I've mentioned this in passing in a few other posts and have been asked for the recipe so I'll go ahead and post it here. This is a great way to use leftover chicken that you've smoked.
