    Onion Chili Soup

    We were having a bonspiel at our curling club. This means there was a lot of people coming in from out of town. We like to have a light lunch for our guests and volunteers bring in slow cookers of soup. My contribution this year was Onion Chili Soup. My idea was to get the rich taste of chili...

    Hey all, it's been a while but just stopping by to share an amazing dinner we had tonight. I found a great ribeye roast at my local grocery which was a shock because you usually don't find this with a fair amount of marbling. I felt this one was more than worthy and was on sale so it just made...

    Smoking Homemade Bratwurst without casing...

    I have never done this but am excited to make my own brats with pork and beef and smoke them. I don't like casings so am going to form "logs" (maybe the shape of a Twinkie) and smoke them. My plan is to refrigerate after forming so they can firm up, then place them on the smoker and likely...

    Brisket to Wrap or Not to Wrap that is the question?

    I've had reasonable success with my briskets by smoking until 165; then foil wrapping until reaching 200-ish. Not real happy with the bark result so want to try taking her all the way past 200 with no wrapping. My smoker is a Masterbuilt Pro, seasoned with some off the shelf Terry Black's Beef...

    Smoked Korean beef short ribs (kalbi) and a mystery pork cut
