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 […]

Big Green Egg Baby Back Ribs

Pork

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

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 […]

Big Green Egg Maple Brined Pork Chops

Pork

I have to admit it (so please don’t tell anyone) that before this cook I had yet to brine anything before grilling it. I had read articles on both the pros and the the cons of brining, so I just assumed I could get great flavor in other ways… which I have. Recently however my daughter gave me a […]

Big Green Egg Shrimp Goat Cheese ABT

Seafood

Everyone loves ABT’s (Atomic Buffalo Turds) and has their own version of this classic BBQ dish. This recipe pairs Shrimp and Goat Cheese with the jalapeño and bacon for one heck of a savory combination. I love making these for guests before the main meal hits the table as this dish impresses every time! So, sit […]

Big Green Egg Ribs and Chicken

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 […]

Big Green Egg Sous Vide Chicken

Chicken

For those of you paying attention to my blogging history, you know that I started a quest to recreate the best chicken I have ever tasted from a restaurant in London named Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. This chicken dish was so moist and delicious I could not stop thinking about it. I asked our server […]
