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 […]

NFL Kickoff Mixed Grill

Pork

This is absolutely my favorite time of the year. I love the transition to cooler weather and with that the deluge of football! The first weekend is always the best as the slate is clean and the competition is high. This Sunday was no exception as there were so much good football to watch and it started […]

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”?! The name originated from a mythical ride Dan’s daddy told him about at the East Texas State Fair when Dan was a little kid. The ride never existed […]

Big Green Egg Baby Back Ribs

Pork

I love a good challenge and coming home from the Kentucky Derby last week I was presented with one. My son was away for the weekend as well and returned with news that he had eaten ribs that were better than mine (yes… my son can be a bit too honest at times). He went […]

Smoked Kalua Pork Belly

Pork

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

The big game (Super Bowl 50) was this past weekend and I wanted to make some good old fashioned BBQ to feed the family. Keep in mind, I am still in the process of teaching myself different techniques to cook the BBQ classics. One of the pillars of the BBQ world is Pork Ribs which comes […]

Tasty Thai Chili Pork Stir Fry

Pork

Recently I have added yet another new toy to my Big Green Egg set up and that is the Large Spider from the Ceramic Grill Store. This new gadget will allow me drop in my Cast Iron Wok to Stir Fry directly over the coals! I was excited to give my latest addition a test run […]

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 Pork Noodle Bowl

Pork

Birthday week continues at Casa De Buddha and this time the focus was on my daughter who turned 23. For her birthday dinner I wanted to cook something special and something I had not done before. I took my inspiration from multiple sources to cobble together this delicious recipe. In addition, I was not intending […]

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. Looking around in the refrigerator I found my inspiration… Zucchini’s! Finding a way to bridge the two ingredients took a little more digging in the pantry. I am happy […]
