Pork Belly Burnt Ends

Pork Belly Burnt Ends

Smoky Morsels of Saucy Meat

Posted on October 17, 2017

You know what burnt ends are. I have yet to make them (they’re on the list I swear!) However I happened to have a butt load – this is an actual unit of measurement – of pork belly waiting for me to turn it into something incredibly delicious. These Pork Belly Burnt Ends are so incredible; I am seriously salivating while I type this! Crispy, smoky, tender, flavorful, saucy, there is literally nothing these morsels of meat are not.

BBQ Duck

BBQ Duck

with Sweet Pea Risotto

Posted on October 11, 2017

I originally made this BBQ Duck with Sweet Pea Risotto in August of 2011. The whole thing turned into a disaster. My timing was a disaster; I had never cooked duck before and didn’t know that it wasn’t just like chicken. Since then, I have tried duck several more times to much success. So much success, I decided to revisit this recipe that I dubbed “oh no! Duck.” to see if I could make it again successfully.

BBQ Glazed Ham

BBQ Glazed Ham

with Smoked Honey and Dijon

Posted on October 03, 2017

BBQ Glazed Ham with Smoked Honey and Dijon was originally made as an easy Easter Dinner in 2015, however, I chose to break with tradition and make this for Thanksgiving dinner this year. Little prep time for this meal means that it’s easy to get going while you work on more labor-intensive dishes, or enjoy time with your family. This time, I tried using the rotisserie instead of placing the ham onto a baking sheet. The end result was a ham that was shiny and flavorful on every side. Caramelized crispy bits mingled nicely with a sticky outside and the salty ham inside. Smoked honey adds a new dimension of flavor that is very subtle, lending itself immediately to the flavor of the ham.

Cheesy Grill Baked Scalloped Potatoes

Cheesy Grill Baked Scalloped Potatoes

with Goats Cheese and Parmesan

Posted on October 03, 2017

You can’t have a ham dinner without scalloped potatoes. Or at least that was the case during my childhood. They always came from a box and had the same bright orange color as Kraft Dinner. These Cheesy Grill Baked Scalloped Potatoes with Goat Cheese and Parmesan, however, are totally different. More flavorful than ever imagined, and perfectly paired with sweet Glazed Ham and a green vegetable of some sort. Serve this on a holiday, or just for the heck of it. This recipe is a lot easier than you think.

Perfect for treating some close family or friends to a delicious amuse bouche or a special occasion meal for two, Grilled Scallops with Couscous and Balsamic Butter, is a quick and easy way to put on the ritz. Buttery balsamic tingles the tongue while savory, citrus-scented scallops melt in the mouth. Easily adjust the amount of heat with the red pepper flakes, just add more or less depending on your preference. If possible, get fresh scallops, the day you are making this recipe.

BBQ Swineapple Recipe

BBQ Swineapple Recipe

How to make a Swineapple

Posted on September 18, 2017

I have been meaning to make this BBQ Swineapple Recipe for some time. I just love the play on words that is the name. I mean, who doesn’t love saying Swineapple? Sweet, acidic, and porky. This BBQ Recipe has it all in spades. Served with some fried rice, you have a meal that was as filling as it is tasty. 


Now I ended up doing this recipe twice. I had the brilliant idea that you could use the rotisserie to cook this, getting a beautiful and crispy bacon crust on every side! It didn’t go so well. Due to the acid content from the pineapple, the bacon disintegrated, even though I used a thicker cut. Remember that your bacon will break down faster if you use regular bacon. In the end, I ended up roasting the BBQ Swineapple on a rack over a drip pan. It was still delicious, however, the bottom wasn’t glazed and crispy, as I had hoped.

Smoked Beef Brisket

Smoked Beef Brisket

Tender, smokey, delicious.

Posted on September 14, 2017

We shared this recipe for Smoked Beef Brisket in January of 2013, however, I thought that it would be a great recipe to revisit, especially with so many holidays on the horizon. Smoked Beef Brisket is an excellent way to feed a crowd. Sweet honey and red wine enhance the smoke and seasoning, and after ten hours (or more) in the smoker, it will be well worth the wait. Serve this recipe with your favorite sides for a great holiday dinner.

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.

Grill Baked Corn Muffins

Posted on August 29, 2017
You can’t have a great barbecue without Grill Baked Corn Muffins to go along with it. I’ve been leery of making cornbread/corn muffins since I have about a 50% success rate when it comes to victoriously baking this beautiful barbecued side dish. They’re either perfection incarnate – like these ones – or resemble a dried out kitchen sponge. This recipe is easy, quick, and yields results that are undeniably delicious. Try this no-fail recipe today for your next cookout. You won’t be disappointed.
