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 […]

How to Cook a Turbo Brisket Flat

Beef, Featured

Sunday is shopping day at the Buddha household. On this particular Sunday I was pleasantly surprised to find a brisket flat on sale in the butcher department. If you do not know what a brisket flat is, it is one of two muscles that make up a whole packer brisket. The other muscle is the […]

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 […]

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 […]

Kamado Lamb Shawarma

Beef

I love street food and especially love finding a food truck that serves good Shawarma. This middle eastern dish is very satisfying and one you can eat on the go as the meat (usually lamb or chicken) is served with grilled vegetables, yogurt sauce, and wrapped in Pita bread. On my home cooking “to do” […]

St Louis Ribs Dizzy Pig Style

Pork

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 […]

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 […]

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 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 […]
