Vinegarize IT Hot Chicken Wings

Chicken

SPONSORED POST Hello again and Happy Holidays! I hope your Thanksgiving break was a good one. I had the pleasure of trying a new rub from the folks at Vinegarize last week that is worth sharing with you. Their Hot blend is so good on chicken wings you won’t need to sauce them after the cook. […]

Glazed Double Smoked Spiral Ham

Hello friends and Happy Thanksgiving! Please be sitting down for this… this year we have decided to eat out on Thanksgiving Day.

Braised Smoked Beef Short Ribs

Beef

Farmers Market Smoked Salsa

Sauces + Sides

Kamado Style Peruvian 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 […]
