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 […]

Big Green Egg Baby Back Ribs

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 […]

St Louis Ribs Dizzy Pig Style

Last week I had the pleasure of picking up my son Zak from his mother’s house in Huntsville, AL and driving with him back to VA for a summer internship. Along the way,  our “boys trip” took an unexpected turn as we detoured to Lynchburg, TN and the birthplace of Old No. 7. Once there, […]

Big Green Egg Ribs and Chicken

Chicken, Pork

This past weekend was a long one as we celebrated Memorial Day helping us to remember the fallen soldiers who have protected our freedom. We participated, as most of us do, by spending time outdoors with family and friends and by cooking something great on the Big Green Egg. Since we planned to have friends over to our […]

Guinness Marinated Beef Short Ribs

Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and we decided to cook with that theme in mind. We wanted to play with the beef and cabbage concept and in turn create a unique dish that works for St. Patty’s day (or any other day). This recipe is a form of our Pantry Night concept and (as our recipes […]
