Little Griddle Kettle-Q

Product Review

As most of you know by now I am a contributor to another Blog named Big Green Brotherhood. Earlier this month Jon from Little Griddle reached out to the Brotherhood and asked us if we wanted to try their new flattop griddle named Kettle-Q. The Kettle-Q is an insert for charcoal grills >18″ in diameter. This stainless […]

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 […]

Kamado Chimichurri Chicken Wings

Chicken

Hello again and thanks for stopping by! Freshly back from recent travels I was looking for inspiration and found it on the Tastemade site. You know, it is that site you see posted and then re-posted on Facebook with the sped up videos enticing you to cook something that you never do. Yeah… that site! Well, when […]

Kamado Style Fire Roasted Salsa

Sauces + Sides, Vegetable

Hello everyone and thanks for sharing in the salsa making journey with me. As some of you may know this is my second attempt at making salsa on the Big Green Egg.

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

If you are anything like me you want to shop at your local farmer’s market, buy ingredients that speak to you, and go home to make something wonderful. This vision of myself is in conflict with the reality that I often stroll through the market, listen to the Bluegrass band, buy a big bag of kettle […]

Grilled Tequila Lime Flank Steak

Beef

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. […]

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 […]
