Lamb & Beef BBQ Gyros

Lamb & Beef BBQ Gyros

a little taste of Greece

Posted on August 29, 2017

Lamb & Beef BBQ Gyros is a recipe that I have been itching to try for a while. I’ve seen the gigantic spinning cones of meat at Greek food stands, tasted the succulent meat sliced from the still spinning spit, served with feta and fresh tzatziki on a pillowy steamed pita. I wanted desperately to recreate this on my grill. Flavor wise, this recipe is a huge success. Unfortunately, the meat did not want to stay on the spit, and I wound up roasting it instead. Don’t let that deter you. When you taste that first morsel, you’ll be very pleased. 

*PRO TIP – save the drippings from your gyro meat for making gravy later. It’s full bodied and will give gravy a depth of flavor that bacon or butter won’t provide.

Steak Quesadillas

Steak Quesadillas

with Fresh Guacamole

Posted on August 17, 2017

I thought this recipe could use an update. Originally made for an office lunch and learn in 2011, I have been making these steak quesadillas for a while. They're delicious and quick and I have been making them as a quick snack for dinner (in smaller portions) for ages now. Once you know how to grill a steak to perfection using your SIZZLE ZONE™ side burner, it's a piece of cake. Use the Napoleon BBQ Pizza Spatula to make moving those large tortillas around the grill super easy too!

Smoked Pulled Pork

Smoked Pulled Pork

Kansas City Style with a Canadian Twist

Posted on July 18, 2017
Smoked Pulled Pork is the ultimate summer party food. Soaked in sweet and spicy sauce, served on a bun, stuffed into a roasted potato (regular or sweet), and eaten with your closest friends and family, there is no doubt that summer is incomplete without making some smoked pulled pork. This recipe is KansasCity Style, with a bit of a Canadian Twist. I served this to my neighborhood when we had a block party to celebrate summer. It was the perfect porcine potluck provision to share. 

 

If you are making the pork ahead of time or to freeze for later, you can skip adding the sauce to the shredded pork. If packaging for the freezer, instead of serving it all at once, make sure that you freeze it for maximum freshness by following the directions in this blog post. I generally pack 1 lb. at a time; that will feed about four when reheated.

Big Juicy Burgers

Big Juicy Burgers

The Ideal Burger for a Summer BBQ

Posted on July 04, 2017
You’ve probably had some pretty delicious barbecue in the last little while, what with it being “officially” summer now. Though, you haven’t had great barbecue until you’ve devoured some Big Juicy Burgers, and not just any old recipe will do. These burgers were the biggest and juiciest yet! I was feeling lazy after making 8 batches of homemade strawberry jam, so after a long and sweet day, these burgers hit the spot. Make the patties ahead of time and freeze them with some waxed paper in between, or just eat them after letting the meat rest and you won’t be disappointed.

Smoked Sirloin Sandwiches

Smoked Sirloin Sandwiches

with Club House La Grille Southern Style BBQ Seasoning & Montreal Steak Spice

Posted on June 27, 2017
Smoked Sirloin Sandwiches are ideal for a unique 4th of July, or Canada Day main course. They’re easy to make, incredibly flavorful, and definitely not just another burger! (Though we do have some pretty good ones!) These sandwiches are perfect, topped with Spicy Alabama White Sauce, piled high with perfectly tender sliced beef. You don’t need to do much with this recipe once it’s on the grill, especially if you have a Wireless Digital Thermometer like this one. That means you have plenty of time to decorate or relax. When serving, remember to pick a bun with a slightly crusty exterior, and pillowy soft interior. Potato salad and Coleslaw are the sides of choice to go along with this delightful delicacy.

Better Butter Burger

Better Butter Burger

Butter makes things even better

Posted on May 25, 2017

I originally made the Better Butter Burger in March of 2011 after watching Chef Ted Reader create these masterful morsels of magnificence at a Cottage Life Show demo. The Better Butter Burger harkens back to the day when hamburger patties were fried in butter on a hot griddle, and buns were brushed with butter before being toasted or grilled too. In celebration of National Hamburger Day, I thought it would be appropriate to revisit this recipe. Taking hamburgers to the next level and infusing them with delicious butter.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Burgers

Peanut Butter & Jelly Burgers

It’s peanut butter jelly time!

Posted on April 05, 2017
A popular dish at burger joints nowadays is a burger with peanut butter on it. If you haven’t tried one already, you’re probably questioning the menu editor on this particular burger. I can tell you that I have some reservations myself, about putting peanut butter on a burger. However, if you haven’t tried it, you may want to consider making yourself these Peanut Butter & Jelly Burgers. In celebration of National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day on April 2nd, I decided that it was about time to try this. I think I need to repeat; you should too, these burgers are seriously good.

with Thai Mango Salad

Posted on January 31, 2017
Sure, you can easily make petite patties and slap them on miniature buns for your Super Bowl nosh, but why not turn your taste buds up to eleven with some unique Pork Belly Sliders with Thai Mango Salad. You’ll want to serve these on fresh brioche buns, or maybe even get real fancy with homemade steam buns. I borrowed stole some dough from the recipe for Homemade Pretzel Bites and created deliciously dense buns that worked well for this recipe, however, feel free to contain the deliciousness from this recipe in a bun-ly creation of your choice.
