    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…

    The sandwich, whether pulled pork or brisket or rib-ends or pulled chicken, is at the heart of the barbecue world. Chicken and ribs don’t need bread, but it’s often served with it anyway. Traditionally, it’s been the same thing for years, though a great way to have bbq: a bun or bread, stuffed with meat and topped with bbq sauce. There’s a Columbus, Ohio, based chain called City BBQ. Their claim to fame is that the founders won the brisket category years ago at the American Royal. And, even though it’s in Ohio, they do really good bbq. Now they’ve added a…

     A few weeks ago while camping at the lake, I caught several catfish and decided to try something different with them instead of frying. (I love fried catfish). I had my Char-Broil Grill 2 Go with me so it seemed like a good time to try it out. I seasoned and wrapped a couple of fresh caught catfish filets in leek leaves, grilled them on low until  the fish was flaky and tender.

They are known for being large muscled and fast growing producing lots of red meat with less fat. This animal is colored almost pure white. The breed has a long history in France. The Charolais has also been used here in the states crossed with Angus and Hereford breeds for beef production.

A glass of milk was poured just in case. The brine had dulled the bright watermelon colors. It smelled of vinegar like a pickle should. The Mexican Gherkin was cut in half and It was popped into my awaiting mouth. It was soft but still had a tooth to it. I anticipated the heat rush to follow. Nada, Zip, Zero, no discernible heat was present. In fact I could not really taste the sweet brine. The Ghost pepper flavor and heat…

Before we get to the headliner, there were a couple of other pizzas on the grill. First was a smoked turkey and homemade cranberry sauce on cream cheese effort. For the record, the sauce went on top rather than on the bottom… The smoked turkey was an unlabeled mystery meat surprise buried in the back of the freezer.

    Allow me to introduce you to a chicken sandwich.  In all fairness, this is more than a chicken sandwich. This bit of chili and lime-infused culinary fare is a tested and proven party starter! Dump your boring tacos and burritos. Go fresh, lean and mean. This culinary fiesta combines the zesty heat of a hand-ground dry rub, elevated alongside the tender, smoky essence from the searing grates of your grill, then balanced with sweet greens and a cool, creamy avocado sauce spread on toasted, artisan pretzel buns. This is a chicken sandwich.  Grill.  Eat.  Repeat!   Grilled and Shredded…

    Whether you like your steak rare, medium or well done, the only way to be sure it’s cooked exactly as you like it is to take its internal temperature. Traditional meat dial thermometers are not the best tool for this job because it takes quite awhile for the thermometer to come up to temperature and give you a reading.  The better tool is a digital probe thermometer. You can purchase a fairly pricy “instant read” thermometer for about $100. You can also go with a less expensive digital probe thermometer for about $20. They’re available at many home goods and outdoor…

It’s great to add just salt and pepper to a steak and grill it, but you can do so much more on a grill. For instance, there’s no reason you can’t add a skillet to the side burner to pan sear a steak, then finish it on the grill. By doing this, you can make a pan sauce while finishing the steak on the grill. A great way to try this out is to make steak au poivre, or pepper steak. Yeah, you’re right:…

    Steak is what’s for dinner when it comes to grilling. The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association estimates nearly three out of four American grillers choose beef most often when they grill. And Food.Com lists “steak recipes” as one of the top 10 online food searches. It’s also one of the hottest topics from you – our readers of Sizzle on The Grill. Thankfully, there are a wide variety of steak cuts to choose from so no matter your budget or your tastes, there is always a steak ready to be grilled.

    Evolution of an Organic GardenThe question in your mind, right now, might along the lines of “What has a Playground and Organic Garden have to do with Grilling?”.Absolutely everything!I certainly love my local supermarkets and our summer farmers market, they all have great produce and a fairly strong line-up of organic produce, but the produce is rarely freshly picked. Unless I am at the farmers market, which is still several hours to a day or two fresh, it is most often not fresh but picked just before it’s shipped, ripe or not.

  • Review: Adam Perry Lang's Serious Barbecue Backlot BBQ

    Dru Chai
    8 Oct 2014 | 10:03 pm
    By Dru ChaiI could wax poetic all day about Adam Perry Lang's (Chef APL) BBQ, but then I would get really, really hungry. Again and again. Chef APL named his 3-week long pop-up "Serious Barbecue," and it's both a playful nod and wink to those who fully appreciate the dedicated craft of low and slow, no-fuss, Texas-style BBQ.It was a little tricky finding the main entrance. After a small detour down an alley-way towards the Jimmy Kimmel Live! backlot, no more directions were needed. I simply followed my nose towards the smell of sweet BBQ smoke and the sight of bright green artificial…

But as a backyard BBQ griller/smoker, cleaning is an absolute necessity. The grates need to be cleaned for the next session, and if you don't, who knows what type of bacteria will start forming on there. Nobody wants to get sick from a BBQ party, that's for sure.There are countless grill brushes out on the market, and I've used quite a few over the past several years as a BBQ enthusiast.

Anyway, never-mind that part. What we're talking about are the perfect burnt ends -- the outside with just the right amount of smokiness and bark, the inside juicy and tender meat with the fat rendered down.So it's no coincidence that when I smoke a packer brisket, I most look forward to making burnt ends. Proper burnt ends are made from the "point" of the brisket -- cut up into cubes, seasoned again, then…

    A month or so ago, I was in Montreal for 24 hours.  After posing the question to my Canadian friends on where to go for good eats, two places kept coming to the top of the list:  Schwartz's and Blackstrap BBQ.  So, after landing and checking into the hotel, my colleague and I ran to the rental car and started off on our meat adventures. First, for lunch, we went to Schwartz's Deli in search of the best smoked meat in Montreal. As you can see, it is quite the popular place.  A decent sized line at 3 pm.What is this?  Hunks of smoked meat.  Beef, turkey, and…

    Dutch oven cooking… the penultimate form of camp fire cooking.. has always fascinated me. You may have guessed this from an earlier article I wrote on cooking with Dutch Ovens. 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…
