Since our host hasn’t posted any of his delicious projects in awhile, I volunteered to step in with a smoky treat of my own concoction. The summer heat arrived in AL a bit late this year but it has arrived and I have just the thing to combat it. A fine sheen of sweat on […]
This isn’t my first steak post. But it’s by far the best example I have of cooking steaks recently. And the photos are much better than my last steak cook.
There’s a new favorite meal around the house. I was given a 12″ baking stone for the Egg for Christmas and I’ve generally worked out the kinks of how to make really awesome pizza at home. I tend to pick up fresh balls of dough at the local supermarket, but you can buy the pre-made […]
I have a good friend who recently received a Big Green Egg as a Christmas gift. He’s without prep space at the moment as he and his wife have been remodeling their kitchen and I am sad for his Egg as it sits lonely on his patio, all white and pristine. I thought I’d toss […]

This recipe was inspired by a trip to the Gaylord Opryland Hotel where I ate at the Cascades American Cafe restaurant there and had their Sweet Tea Pork Tenderloin. They served it with finger potatoes and baby greens over a stone ground mustard sauce. Add in a Maker’s […]
So, we made it. And the results were better this time around. For starters, I found a better brining bag. An actual zipper bag made for that. It was much sturdier and larger, so it held up to more abuse. I left the ice packs on the breasts for about 30 minutes this time instead […]
Well, the Thanksgiving turkey has been brining for about 3 hours now. I’ve gone ahead and loaded the Egg with more coal than the last cook. The coal is well above the top of the fire bowl this time around. Given the results of a 10 lb turkey taking about 2.5 hours, I’m expecting the […]
So, as most first tries go, the cook wasn’t perfect. For starters, the 2 gallon Zip Loc bag leaked into the stock pot where I was brining. It never overflowed, but emptying the pot was a little messier than I planned for it to be. Also, as it turns out, I didn’t pack the Egg […]
