Vinegarize IT Hot Chicken Wings

Chicken

SPONSORED POST Hello again and Happy Holidays! I hope your Thanksgiving break was a good one. I had the pleasure of trying a new rub from the folks at Vinegarize last week that is worth sharing with you. Their Hot blend is so good on chicken wings you won’t need to sauce them after the cook. […]

Korean Style Wagyu Flat Iron Steak

Beef

My good friends at the Organic Butcher of McLean had some amazing American Wagyu beef that was too good to pass up. I wanted to cook something different and decided to grab one of their Wagyu Flat Iron Steaks to try. This cut of beef is from the shoulder of the animal, well marbled and flavorful, […]

Smoked Spicy Korean Spare Ribs

Piedmontese Beef NY Strip

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.

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 […]

Grilled Tequila Lime Flank Steak

Sunday was National Tequila Day so I decided to celebrate the occasion, as I always do, with food! I took to the internet to draw inspiration from a Guy Fieri recipe for this cook. The recipe is easy to make and impressed my family. The balance of the tequila with the lime juice paired perfectly with the flank steak. […]
