Smoked Bacon Wrapped Corn

Here is a little something I came up with earlier this month when we bought some farm fresh sweet corn. Typically, when I smoke corn in the husk it gets too dry to suite my tastes. So I decided to try wrapping the ear in bacon prior to smoking it. First, strip back the husks […]

Father’s Day 2010

This year we had our Father’s day on Saturday because my daughter is going to Las Vegas tomorrow with one of her friends’ family. There were a lot of people at our house for burgers and hot dogs today and I think everyone had a great time in the pool and had plenty to eat […]

Mother’s Day 2010

We decided to keep it simple for Mother’s Day dinner this year. I smoked a small pork butt, a small pork loin roast and a chicken. All the meat turned out as it should have but the cake that a friend made for my wife was the star of the day. It was a heart […]

Easter ham and fruit stuffed fattie

Ham is an Easter tradition for us so it was time to smoke one for Sunday dinner. I usually inject and baste with a mixture of canned pineapple juice, maraschino cherry juice and brown sugar. Today though, I was planning to uses some cherry wood for smoke so I added a box of cherry jello […]

Hot & Fast Christmas Brisket

My family wanted brisket for Christmas dinner but I had to work most of the day on Christmas Eve and leave at 6 the next morning until nearly noon. There was precious little time to smoke anything at all but I had read about a hot & fast method so I decided to try it. […]

Grilled Chicken Fajita Spud

In route to the store this morning I remembered a restaurant where I used to live called The Cabbage Patch. The food was always great but one of my favorites was a chicken fajita spud. Those thoughts made me want one pretty bad. So, I picked up some fajita sliced chicken breast strips, marinade and […]

Pulled Pork Chili

I smoked a couple of pork butts a few weeks ago and decided to make some Pulled Pork Chili out of some of it. This kind of chili was something I had never tried but it turned out pretty tasty! This is what I started out with. and here is what it looked like after […]

Meatloaf Burgers

Yesterday was another bachelor day for me. The wife and kids were out of town for a couple of football games and I was on call for the week end. My thoughts, while at the grocery store that morning, were to smoke a meatloaf. So I bought a small, 1.32#, package of 97% lean ground […]

Pulled Pork Fatty

I nearly always throw on a fatty or two when i fire up the smoker to cook something. Fatties are easy to put together and cook quickly. For this one, I flattened one pound of pork sausage then added some left over pulled pork, chopped onions and pepper jack cheese. Then applied a liberal coating […]

Pulled Pork Sandwiches

This was the first cook on my new Pro Q Smoker and it was a very long one. Twenty one hours to be exact. But the finished product was worth the wait. The culprit in this 21 hour cook was this stubborn 8# pork butt. I gave it a heavy mustard slather and coated it […]
