Kamado Style Peruvian Chicken

Chicken

Last week I was away with the family for a vacation at the Outer Banks, NC. Getting back this weekend I wanted to cook something as I had not cooked on my Big Green Egg in several days. My last post featured my latest toy: The Joetisserie. The chicken for that cook didn’t turn out as good […]

Joetisserie Chicken

Chicken, Product Review

Over the last year I have seen many accessories allowing you to do rotisserie style cooking on a Big Green Egg. Up until now I have not had the pleasure of cooking with one. I am happy to tell you that all changed this past Father’s Day! My wife and kids got me the Kamado Joe: Joetisserie for my […]

Cilantro Lime Chicken Thighs

Chicken

I dislike starting my post with a complaint, but 25 out of the last 30 days it has rained. I do not have a covered area to cook at my home so I have not been on my Big Green Egg in a couple of weeks. This week the rain finally cleared and with the […]

Grilled Kentucky Hot Brown

Well, it is that time of year again and Mrs. Buddha and I are excited to make our way to Louisville, KY and take part in the Kentucky Derby festivities. To get us primed for the fun ahead we decided to make a Derby themed meal this weekend. There are many things that define Louisville, […]

Big Green Egg Chicken Bombs

Chicken

This past week I received a package from my friends at Dizzy Pig BBQ Company containing their new rub “Crossroads”. Much like the song lyrics, I fell to my knees and thanked the BBQ Gods for this new flavor featuring a return to traditional BBQ taste! For my cook I wanted to do a classic Big […]

As I continue to find things that inspire me to cook this year, a recipe came to me from a good friend of mine (and fellow foodie) Toan Thai. He sent me an email last week with a link to a recipe video for the Standard Grill’s Million Dollar Chicken suggesting I make this for the […]

Big Green Egg Jerk Chicken

Chicken, Featured

Happy New Year to you all. I hope your holiday break was a good one! Fresh back from our annual trip to Negril Jamaica, I am still reminiscing about the bold and intense flavors of their Jerk style of cooking. As a result, I wanted to recreate the flavors of Jamaica while the taste was still in my […]

Traina Sriracha Ketchup Stir Fry

Chicken

One of my most favorite food combinations is mixing Sriracha with Ketchup. I love it on fries, burgers, hot dogs, eggs… you name it, I love that combo on just about anything. In recent years I have seen many companies put out their versions of Sriracha Ketchup but nothing really comes close to the mix […]

Big Green Egg Lemon Garlic Chicken

Chicken

I recently ate dinner at a restaurant in downtown Washington D.C., Birch and Barley. I was there with a group from work and we had a unique dining experience called the Beast Feast, which  included three whole animals with sides, a charcuterie platter, and amazing beer pairings. This was a fantastic meal and one I recommend if you are […]

Big Green Egg Curry Brined Chicken

Chicken

My journey in to brining continues with this delicious recipe. I have seen people soak their chicken in buttermilk before and wanted to try this technique out for myself. With the success of my last post for Brined Pork Chops I turned my attention to chicken. I read up on brining techniques for chicken and came […]
