Curses, Tony Bourdain!!! I ran across a video on Facebook one night and realized that I must cook this. Anthony Bourdain did a video with Balvenie where he made steak au poivre over an open flame and was both immediately hungry and inspired. I didn’t have 7 hours in front of me to make the […]
So, I’ve largely used the same charcoal for years now. It’s an 80/20 Oak/Hickory blend and not some secret recipe like the Big Green Egg and Kamado Joe Natural Lump Charcoal. Lately, ownership of my favorite local store changed hands and they’ve stopped carrying the good stuff in favor of the branded stuff from Kamado […]
So why has it taken me literally years to post a chicken wing recipe? I dunno, but here’s one for you.
AKA #MagicCityBurn vs. Shula’s Steak House Recently, I was lucky enough to receive a $100 gift card to Shula’s Steakhouse, somewhere that I would never normally eat. Dinner there was quite an experience. I had an amazing glass of XYZin 50 Year Old Vine Zinfandel and their 22 oz bone-in, dry aged, USDA Prime Cowboy […]

So I’ve been quiet for a while. Not for lack of cooking. Not for lack of taking photos of food. Just, not posting in a timely manner. Thanks to eatdrinkandbemanly.com for reminding me of my social responsibility. I also have numerous pics of his fajita recipes, which are excellent. A couple weeks ago, we picked […]
Another Big Green Egg cook. Center cut pork chops. This is a crowd pleaser. I cook pork chops with and without the bones. These just happen to be boneless this time. We served these with mixed vegetables for lunch. Ingredients: Bone-in or boneless pork chops (thick cut) 1/4 cup soy based marinade. We use Pilleteri’s […]
