Hello everyone and welcome back to The BBQ Buddha! This post features a recipe I made last month for a local EGGFest at Brownsboro Hardware here in Louisville, KY. This is an easy and delicious appetizer to make on your Big Green Egg. My friends at Dizzy Pig were kind enough to sponsor me for […]

Big Green Egg Thanksgiving Turkey

Chicken

Cooking a turkey for Thanksgiving is something everyone should be responsible for at least once in their life. Talk to several different cooks and they all have their own method of cooking a turkey including smoking, frying, baking, and spatchcock.

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 […]

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 […]

Watching Susan and […]

Big Green Egg Shrimp Tacos

I wanted to make something easy and delicious for Taco Tuesday this week featuring seafood. The last recipe I made was for Fish Tacos and that turned out great. This time I set my attention to shrimp and came up with this simple yet savory recipe. Now sit back, grab a cold Tecate, and enjoy […]

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 […]

Big Green Egg Mixed Grill

Chicken, Seafood

Last Sunday we had some family coming over and wanted to make a mixed grill to feed everyone. For this cook I went with bone-in chicken thighs, shrimp, sausage, potatoes, and corn. The trick to a cook like this is timing and grilling space. No worries as I was able to navigate both and come […]
