    This is the time of year to think about how you’re going to fix turkey. It’s going to happen on Thanksgiving, and may happen again on Christmas. But it is going to happen. The question is… How? I’ve cooked turkeys several ways. I’ve roasted them in the oven. I’ve grilled them after spatchcocking the. I’ve smoked them, and I’ve fried them. There are good things about every method. How about a mix of them? Smoking takes a long time (half an hour per pound). Frying burns down houses and pretty much ruins holiday seasons. Plus, it involves a bunch…

    I love fall for grilling! The weather is getting cooler, the leaves are changing, and the bugs are going away! Fall also means apple season, which means local, fresh apples, which means… apple pie! Or, even easier, apple galette, which is really just a free-form pie. A previous version can be found here. However, I changed things up in a couple of ways. I added 2-3 slices of crisp bacon, and bourbon. That’s right: bourbon and bacon apple pie! Then I topped it with browned butter-bourbon sauce! It’s just getting nuts with the b’s, but it’s a great payoff! The…
  • Grilled Peaches For Later

    This has been an odd season. With the cooler weather, produce has been available later than I remember seeing it. I just got some fresh peaches that were great. So I bought some more. Then I realized I couldn’t eat them all. What to do, what to do? The answer was actually quite easy… Can them! Canning fruit is really simple, as a lot of fruit doesn’t need anything to keep if canned properly. The acidity is low enough to keep the fruit safely. But I couldn’t just can plain old peaches, could I? If you’ve been around here much, you know that I can’t!   I…

    I want to be clear that I still believe that Scotch whisky is the greatest things on the planet. However, Scotland is far away, and bourbon isn’t! At the same time, there’s some pretty good bourbon, too. While Scotch has a really wide band of possible flavors, the corn requirement in bourbon means that the band of flavor potential is narrower than that for Scotch. I would like to try some peat-influenced bourbon sometime, though! Being in southwestern Ohio means I’m just an hour or so from the closest bourbon distilleries in Kentucky. There are some in Ohio, too, and a rye…

    It’s been a week since I made pickles for the first time, and time to try them out! We opened up some of the plain dill pickles to try. They’re good, and vinegary. A bit sharp, but they should mellow over time. For plain dill pickles, I think I would add a bit more spices to it to add something to the vinegar, or use a bit more apple cider vinegar. Definitely good, though. The other jar I opened had the old-fashioned in it, meaning rye whiskey with a couple dashes of bitters, along with a bit of Maguey Sweet Sap. It’s really a whiskey cocktail, as an old-fashioned would have…

    Another two weeks has gone by, and once again it is my turn to pick from a list of ingredients used by Tom Porter of Big Butz BBQ last week as part of the Rekindle the Fire series/challenge. Those of you following along (I believe the number might be as high as 4) know that Tom used red onions (off limits for this cook), beef arm roast (aka chuck roast, but who’s keeping score?), butternut squash, and spaghetti. Since it’s getting late in the year, the butternut squash was the obvious choice to use as the carryover ingredient, mainly because the are fresh, plentiful, and cheap.

Here’s proof, in the form of a bad picture.

This week it was my turn, and in keeping with the rules of the challenge, I selected one of Tom’s primary ingredients (apples) and incorporated them in a dish of my choosing.

    Nothing is put to a higher and best use than leftover turkey breast on a Kentucky Hot Brown. If you live in the South, you know what a Hot Brown is. If not, here’s the story. The Brown Hotel is renowned in Louisville and elsewhere as a bastion of luxury and tradition. It was built in 1923 and many famous people have inhabited its opulent rooms over the years. In the Roaring Twenties, the Brown held dinner dances and afterwards hungry guests would stream into the restaurant for a bite to eat. The chef created the Hot Brown as a memorable late-night signature dish that stands to this day.

      If the thought of making pie crusts makes you nervous or you are serving people who cannot eat gluten, these grilled pecan “pies” will please everyone at your holiday table. All of the flavor and none of the hassle!   Testing the height of the ramekins on the double pans   In addition to cooking over indirect heat, a technique I use when baking on the grill is called double panning. That simply means that you are stacking one sheet pan inside another, creating a layer of insulation and slightly elevating the baking dishes. When you are baking on a grill, this is…

With a simple butter and barbecue rub injection, this turkey comes out moist and juicy – perfect for the feast itself and delicious for turkey sandwiches or soup the day after. The Char-Broil® TRU-Infrared™ Big Easy Smoker makes quick work of smoking a turkey breast. Simply heat it up, add the turkey breast with a digital probe thermometer in the thickest part of the…
  • Big Easy Cajun Turkey with Slider Dressing

    Grillin Fools
    18 Nov 2014 | 8:47 am
    I was going to call this Big Easy Cajun Turkey with Slider Stuffing, but technically nothing was stuffed. The way the Big Easy works, it will way over cook the stuffing while cooking the turkey to perfection for you this Thanksgiving. You wouldn’t stuff the bird and then throw it in a deep fryer. Same deal here except without the risk of burning down your house or the cost of oil. I’ve deep fried exactly one turkey with oil. They recommend peanut oil. That stuff is $15 a gallon and I needed three gallons of oil I was never going to use again. Out with the turkey fryer and in with…

It’s my favorite time of the year with the smell of the first chill in the air, the promise of cozy evenings by the fireplace and pulling out sweaters for the cold days ahead. Football games, holiday movies, family gatherings are all coming up. Cinnamon and ginger, pumpkin and turkey, hearty filling meals that warm up the coldest days. Fall is here!     While I hate to see the stone fruits of summer disappear, I wanted to create desserts that would be light…

    If you’re a fan of BBQ you are quite familiar with John Markus.

  • Rum Cocktails Back in Fashion

    kevin
    5 Sep 2013 | 8:29 am
    Rum is a drink that has gone through something of resurgence in popularity lately. The recent craze for cocktails, especially the mojito, has led rum to become a much in- demand spirit. Rum has long been associated as the drink of choice for pirates and sailors. The fact that many of the world’s most popular rums are produced in Latin America and the Caribbean does give the drink a more exotic brand image. Rum became extremely popular during the 1960s thanks to the Cuba Libre (meaning Free Cuba) cocktail. This cocktail of white rum, cola and lime was one of the most popular drinks during…

    Even though summer’s been here for a while now, it’s not too late to start thinking about hosting a BBQ or two. But with disposable BBQs becoming a quick an easy fix for weekend dining, there are a few more options than used to be the case. Here are a few tips about the different types of BBQs on the market to help you decide which one to go for. First of all, you should consider whether you want to make a long-term investment in your BBQ or whether you’d prefer to go for a disposable option. Recent years have seen the popularity of the disposable BBQ rocket as a more flexible, low-cost…

    Last weekend it was time to make this delicious recipe for sauerkraut d’Alsace, or, sauerkraut from the Alsace. The weekend before I had made guinea fowl confit and that required to rest about a week. That’s why it was time last weekend! Because these two things belong together, confit and sauerkraut, and oooh of course mashed potatoes!! I already published the recipe for the confit here, and now you will get the recipe for the sauerkraut. As you will notice in the list of ingredients, it contains duck or goose fat. So I have to warn you not to make this too often haha! I used the same…

And with some of this pesto I made this pasta dish: The ingredients: 4 tablespoons butter ¼ cup pesto homemade (see my recipe for homemade pesto) 1 teaspoon (or more, or less…as much as you can handle) dried red chile flakes ¼ cup vin santo ¼ cup heavy cream ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese 6 large basil leaves Pepper/salt ¼ cup pasta water Extra: tagliatelle, grated Parmesan cheese   Start with adding the pasta to salted boiling water, and procede according the package…

    Today’s recipe is another salad. But not just ‘a’ salad, I can say this one was one of the best ever! The beef was perfect, the tomatoes delicious, the avocado creamy, the blue cheese soft and spicy, the dukkah mixture sprinkled on top gave it the perfect finish, and the dressing was a killer. Ingredients for an awesome meal! This recipe I will definitely make over and over again, and also I will try to grill/smoke the meat on the bbq. I think that will make it even tastier (if that’s possible at all!). Oh and then there was wine too, a Cote du Rhone this time. The mentioned dukkah…

    Since today’s International Whiskey Day, it seems like a perfect timing for this Whiskey Cream recipe! The sauce is easy to make, and it is delicious with a juicy steak. Serve it with green beans and twice baked potatoes for example and you’ll have a winner for dinner! The “trick” to this sauce is to use the same pan for the meat as for the sauce. More flavor! Ingredients for 2: 2 steaks (I used beef tenderloins) Black pepper 3 tablespoons butter 1 teaspoon butter (yes, that’s correct) 1 shallot, minced ¼ cup whiskey (I used Tullamore Dew) ½ cup beef stock A few drops of…

    Recently, I have been trying to incorporate some new flavors into the grilling or smoking we have been doing around the house.  Beer has been playing a role in those marinades.  This past weekend, inspired by Gus over at gusfacegrillah.com, we tried making a beef marinade out of a nice stout. My choice was a nice and smooth milk stout from Southern Tier Brewing: Double Milk Stout 2X Stout. This stout is smooth and creamy.  Not too bitter, not too sweet, and well balanced.  Perfect for this beef bath.To prepare this marinade, I started off by roasting some garlic.

In any case, cast iron, durable as hell and able to maintain one heck of a non-stick coating, has been around for thousands of years and exists in its purest form when rendering up vittles cooked by someone who knows what they’re doing. Though this blog deals mainly with BBQ, I feel it makes sense to show some love for other forms of grilling and outdoor cooking. As such, I reached out to Mr. Forrest…

  • Done with Turkey Legs

    31 Oct 2014 | 3:31 pm
    I give up.  This was my fourth attempt at cooking up turkey legs and I still haven't gotten any decent ones.  The flavor is pretty nice but dealing with all of those stingy tendons is driving me NUTS!  I wasn't able to take a single decent bite without having to spit out a tendon of some type.These were brined overnight and rubbed with Bone Sucking Sauce Seasoning before I threw them on the Weber kettle.These were smoked a little on the hot side for about two hours then sauced with Sweet Baby Rays.  Cooked to an internal temp of 167F.Flavor was spot on.  Nice smoke,…
  • Rotisserie Chicken Thighs

    20 Sep 2014 | 10:10 am
    I tried out a new chicken brine this week and wanted to pass it along.  Instead of the usual water/salt/sugar mix I went with 1/3 cup of salt dissolved in a quart of pineapple juice.  I brined a bunch of thighs overnight and grilled them on my Weber the next day.  The thighs were rinsed and dried then seasoned with a little bbq rub. I had so much fun using my rotisserie basket for chicken wings the other day I decided to use it again for these thighs.After about an hour the thighs were looking pretty tasty.Right after I took this picture I brushed the thighs with some…
  • Spinning Some Chicken Wings

    6 Aug 2014 | 4:22 pm
    I've got a thing for chicken wings.  I've got a thing for rotisseries.  The two were bound to come together at some point!I seasoned a dozen wings with salt and pepper, loaded them into a rotisserie basket, and fired up the old Weber gasser!The wings got spun for about 45 minutes and looked incredible tucked into the basket.The wings were nice and crunchy!  Beautiful color :)I sauced these guys up and wolfed them down!  Good eats!!God Bless Chicken Wings!!
  • World Cup Steaks

    14 Jul 2014 | 2:55 pm
    The World Cup is finally over!  I usually love the World Cup but this year was an exception.  It burns my chaps that so many games went into Penalty Kicks.  Can you imagine the NBA Finals being decided with a Free Throw contest??  I realize that the final match did not go to PKs but it was still a snoozer.  Actually I did take a nap in the second half and woke up to see that I hadn’t missed a thing!The best part of the World Cup for me was some New York Strip steaks that I grilled over at my brother-in-law’s house.  The steaks were pretty simple,…
  • Moinks on the Loose!

    7 Jul 2014 | 6:11 pm
    I made up my first batch of Moinks the other day.  They looked amazing and tasted pretty bland.  At least I have a starting point!  A moink is simply a bacon wrapped meatball.  The name comes from the beef meatball (moo) being wrapped in bacon (oink).  I figured any meat wrapped in bacon had to be pretty tasty.    I made a batch of meatballs with a pretty simple recipe of ground beef, bread crumbs and barbecue sauce.  The meatballs were wrapped in bacon (secured with a toothpick) and dusted with a mix of sugar and chili powder.I threw these guys on…
