I have some pretty awesome friends! Some give us presents of meat like venison, others are amazingly creative, they did the photography for this week’s adventure in grilling and also let us smoke at their place… and by smoke, I mean MEAT. This weekend was fantastic. We used the Apollo® to smoke up some pretty delicious things. One such was some Venison Jerky from a roast that we were gifted. I marinated it for 24 hours immediately after slicing and then smoked it for a scant 30 minutes to create something ridiculously addictive.
I wanted to put the last instruction as “Now hoard it all for yourself and don’t tell anyone you made this delicious treat.” But that would be unfair to the people who have not tasted this amazing treat. You remember that Beef Jerky I wrote about? It was phenomenal. This jerky has a little less pow on first contact, but has a robust taste that is subtle and addictive. I promised that I would give half of what was made to the person who kindly gifted the roast to me. But I can tell you that it was nearly impossible to divide it in half and harder still not to just eat it all. There was a lot of nibbling on this day.
This fresh salsa comes together fairly quickly and makes a fantastic and fresh addition to your nachos and tacos.View Details
Barbecue Style Tacos
Beef Carne Asada is Mexican barbecue style shredded beef marinated in chili spices. It’s particularly good on tacos and in burritos, but can be used in just about anything you would normally use ground beef for.View Details
With Injected Baked Potatoes
What if you can make beef more tender and melt in your mouth? “But How?” I hear you cry at your monitors! Inject your beef with a combination of red wine, beef stock and butter!View Details
Marinated For Good Measure
Heat it up or chill it out with your choices of curry paste and chili sauce. This saucy chicken recipe goes well over a bed of grill roasted vegetables and jasmine rice.View Details
With Rum BBQ Sauce
Nice and crispy skin with a sweet and tangy sauce caramelized over top. Tuck in to these legs, but beware, you will need some wet-naps.View Details
Nice Meat Spice
Ghost Pepper Turkey Meatballs are pretty versatile. Paired with pasta and marinara, or eaten as an appetizer, you can’t go wrong with these spicy bites of meaty goodness.View Details
With Smoked Bacon
What better way to use the last of that delicious sourdough bread that to make it into the best holiday side dish ever invented?View Details
So good it's spooky!
Fresh vegetables and grilled beef make up the bones of this dish, but watch out, it bites back! I really suggest that you serve your Ghost Pepper Chili with a dollop of sour cream, some cheese or a tall and cold glass of milk.View Details
