Smoked Spicy Korean Spare Ribs

Pork

I was having dinner with a friend of mine last week and for the appetizer we shared a plate of Korean Hot Wings. Now I have had plenty of hot wings in the past but these were off the charts good. I found myself thinking about this sauce for days after eating the wings from […]

Piedmontese Beef NY Strip

Beef

Have you ever heard of Piedmontese cattle before? Well, I had not until last week but am happy that I found out about this type of beef. This breed of cattle originated in the Piedmont region of Northwest Italy, well known for its wines. The Piedmontese breed is unique as it has a certain genetic marker that enables the […]

SuckleBusters Spare Ribs

Pork

When the founder of SuckleBusters (Dan Arnold) reached out to me to try some of their products I said yes right away. How could I say no to a company named “SuckleBusters”?!

Farmers Market Smoked Salsa

Sauces + Sides
