BGB Chopped Challenge A Frame Chicken

Chicken

As many of you know by now, I am a contributing member of another Big Green Egg blog named The Big Green Brotherhood. One of the things we do to have some fun is to do a virtual “Chopped Challenge” including a mystery box of ingredients. For this challenge the brotherhood partnered with a company […]

Smoked Cubano Chicken Bombs

Chicken

Mashups are all the rage right now, from web applications to music, mashing two great things together is a beautiful thing when done right. For this week’s post, I took the opportunity to mashup two of my favorite foods: a Cuban Sandwich and a smoked chicken bomb. The idea was a simple one, take the contents […]

Monk McGuires Honeysuckle Dust

Pork

Don’t you feel good when someone you are close to finds success following their dreams? Well, that is the case with a good friend of mine, Kevin Ward, from Four41 South BBQ Company. When I first met Kevin he was cooking at the 2015 Eggtoberfest and had yet to start his business. Since then Kevin has launched a […]

Grilled Filipino Chicken Skewers

Welcome back and Happy New Year! Mrs. Buddha and I just got back from our annual pilgrimage to Negril, Jamaica where we had our fair share of jerk chicken, patties, and cold Red Stripe lager. Since the new year is upon us, and the holiday indulgences behind us, the first cook of 2017 features a […]

Cilantro Lime Chicken Thighs

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 Jerk Chicken

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

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 […]

Well, it was my birthday last week and with that came some thoughtful gifts from my friends and family. My daughter got me a new cookbook from Dr. BBQ – Flavorize that I absolutely love! I decided to cook one of the recipes from this book for dinner last night and it was so good I had to share […]
