It’s National Sundae Day soon. Don’t relegate yourself to consuming copious amounts of ice cream layered with delicious tidbits like strawberries, chocolate fudge, and whipped cream.

BBQ Sundaes are made with the expectation that you have prepared each of the ingredients prior to beginning this fun way of serving your favorite barbecued delicacies. If not, you better get grilling. I’ve made some recipe suggestions for you, picking out my favorites for these delicious BBQ Sundae layers.

Smoked Salmon

Smoked Salmon

Cold Smoked on a Gas Grill

Posted on November 09, 2016
The day I received my Apollo Water Smoker from Napoleon was the day that my grandmother asked me to make Smoked Salmon for her. Generally for smoking you want to keep the grill or smoker between the temperatures of 200°F and 275°F, perfect for ribs and pulled pork. For Smoked Salmon, you need a colder temperature of 140°F or so. The idea is that you’re not cooking the fish but using the smoke to preserve and flavor it. I’ve never been able to keep the smoker lower than 200°F when using charcoal. But then I had a brainwave. What if I used my Prestige™ PRO500 instead?  One burner on super low with a PRO Stainless Steel Smoker Tube full of chips would fill the grill with delicious smoke and keep the temperature low. Well guess what? Success! Delicious, delicious, fishy, success!

Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb

Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb

on the Rotisserie

Posted on November 02, 2016
The rotisserie is possibly one of the best grilling accessories you can have. Cooking a Slow Roasted Leg of Lamb on the Rotisserie makes for one succulent meal indeed. Savory spices, roasted garlic oil, and a little patience went a long way to making this family dinner an enjoyable one.

PRO TIP: Remove the grids and sear plates, place Napoleon's Cast Iron Charcoal and Smoker Tray on the burners and use some lump charcoal and wood chips to give your lamb that delicious charcoal flavor.

Chocolate & Espresso Tart

Chocolate & Espresso Tart

Decadent, rich, and the perfect balance of bitter and sweet.

Posted on November 02, 2016
I made this Chocolate & Espresso Tart as part of a menu for some VIP’s. It seemed like the perfect finish to an already rich meal, consisting of an autumn salad and Duck Pizza. I had a little difficulty with the texture of the chocolate. So, remember when you make your own, to be careful when melting the chocolate, not to heat it too hot, too fast. Strange things happen to chocolate when it’s heated too fast. My chocolate went sort of sticky and doughy, but it can sometimes go grainy, or clumpy too. The secret to a silky and beautiful tart is patience when you melt the chocolate.

Spicy Chili with Dark Chocolate

Spicy Chili with Dark Chocolate

on the Grill

Posted on October 25, 2016
To celebrate National Chocolate Day on October 28th, I created three savory dishes that prove Chocolate isn’t just for dessert. You can check out my Chocolate Rubbed Back Ribs and Chocolate Rubbed Steaks here. After experimenting with a few different applications of chocolate in savory food, it was decided that I had to use the real thing in a dish. Also, it’s nearly November, something warming, like a stew, was definitely needed as well. This Spicy Chili with Dark Chocolate is the strangest chili that I have ever made, though it is certainly the most delicious. If you need a warm bowl of yum on a cool day, you need to try this chili.

Chocolate Rubbed Back Ribs

Chocolate Rubbed Back Ribs

on the Rotisserie

Posted on October 25, 2016
Chocolate doesn’t just have to be for sweet dishes and desserts. These Chocolate Rubbed Back Ribs are proof of that. The rub, light smoking, and use of the rotisserie combine to create the most uniquely flavored ribs that I’ve ever tasted. A crisp outer layer followed by super moist and flavorful pork makes these some ribs to remember. Using the rotisserie was a different technique and it was a great success. Try this recipe when you want to do something completely out of the norm. These ribs will break you out of your rib-rut.

Chocolate Rubbed Steaks

Chocolate Rubbed Steaks

With Smoked Coffee

Posted on October 25, 2016
Chef Ted Reader’s Coffee Rubbed Porterhouse serves as inspiration for this latest steak creation; Chocolate Rubbed Steaks With Smoked Coffee. Chocolate is not just for those with a sweet tooth. It’s fantastic for use in savory dishes as well. My goal was to add a depth to the natural flavor of steak. The rub successfully did this while creating a beautiful crust once seared on the side burner of my Napoleon Prestige PRO 500 Grill.

Scottish Dijon Beef Roast

Scottish Dijon Beef Roast

Savory Scottish Sustenance

Posted on October 21, 2016
I recently had the pleasure of visiting Scotland; the food there gave me a feeling of homey, farm-y-ness that I don’t feel living in the city in Canada. Scottish Dijon Beef Roast came from my desire to relive these experiences. To make it really authentic, you need to get your hands on some Black Angus beef, though a good quality roast will be just as delicious.
