Smoked Kalua Pork Belly

I am back with a vengeance after my mini hiatus! To be fair my company was acquired by another, my daughter got married, and it was a long and cold winter. But forget all the personal life stuff… let’s talk food! I have always wanted to cook Pork Belly but felt intimidated. This is not […]

St Louis Ribs Dizzy Pig Style

Big Green Egg Maple Brined Pork Chops

Pork

I have to admit it (so please don’t tell anyone) that before this cook I had yet to brine anything before grilling it. I had read articles on both the pros and the the cons of brining, so I just assumed I could get great flavor in other ways… which I have. Recently however my daughter gave me a […]

Big Green Egg Stuffed Zucchini

Pork

Dinner last night was a classic Pantry Night here in the Buddha household. I had some really good sausages on hand and wanted to do something different with them.

Tonight was a classic Pantry Night in the Buddha household. We had Pork Tenderloin, Prosciutto, Goat Cheese, Spinach, and Kalamata Olives on hand. What possibly could we do with all of these lovely ingredients?! Well we decided to stuff the Goat Cheese, Olives, Spinach, and Prosciutto in the Tenderloin and throw that on the Big Green Egg! This […]

Big Green Egg High Heat Boston Butt

This weekend came to a close with my son and daughter (and their significant others) coming over for an afternoon of games, cigars, and BBQ! To feed all of these hungry faces I wanted to make Pulled Pork BBQ but didn’t have enough time to go low and slow. So, I decided to try a new cooking technique […]
