Smoked Brisket 220

Smoked Brisket 220

This brisket was done at target ozone temp 220. What that does it prolong the cook time but turns out an even richer brisket so damn tender nobody will complain.

Quesadilla comes in many forms from traditional to Tex-Mex. You can add whatever the hell you want chicken, beef, shrimps, veggies, and fish I guess.

Meatloaf

Meatloaf

Not a fan of Meatloaf because most of my previous attempts at getting that perfect Meatloaf as a child that was full of seasoned burps either didn’t hit or I forgot to note. Not this time Meatloaf…

Smoked Corned Brisket

Smoked Corned Brisket

A little different in the spice arena because, like brisket, it doesn’t require a myriad of spices. This corned brisket is smoked right, and there is no need to devalue the meat. The bark? I understand, it brings in extra flavors, but it also kicks the brisket north of the Red River (it ain’t Texas)

Redneck Aged Rib Roast

Redneck Aged Rib Roast

The rib roast is always a scary hunk of meat to cook because it likely cost more than what we want to pay. Most classic prime rib recipes cook at high heat (350 – 450) which sears the outside and leaves the interior, rare to medium rare on a good day.

Texas Cheesesteak Nachos

Texas Cheesesteak Nachos

I could of went to another grocery, but this one is the only one who makes true French bread as I know it. The whole recipe is more for the Swiss cheese sauce.

Smoked Chuck Roast

Smoked Chuck Roast

Chuck roast is an American family favorite because of low price and frankly taste. Well, smoke that sucker. Guarantee your chuck won’t be disrespected as the cheap guy.

Back to The Briskets of Love

Back to The Briskets of Love

This is the way I bang out briskets. There’s so many smoked brisket recipes I just stick to what I know tastes good when guests are involved. This probably isn’t competition legal but it’s the law here. Back in the day a pitmasters thermometer was his hand a his proof of concept was the line waiting to get some. A pitmaster didn’t know he was one and

Spaghetti and Meatballs Flashy Ones

Spaghetti and Meatballs Flashy Ones

The original dinner was going to be a meatloaf but things changed from the grocery to home. They came out great and I can’t say I’ve ever cooked a meatball so blingy.

Steak Diablo

Steak Diablo

One of our premier spots in Houston to get decadent unchallenged fajitas is Pappasito’s. I don’t know how they do it but I always aim for that bar when making relations with a fajita. Anyways, before I jabber about my history of the fajita, they were always

Texas Chili Honcho

Texas Chili Honcho

Texas chili doesn’t have beans, but that doesn’t mean you can’t a-la-cart them. Well, have I got a solution for you and you can call it

Penne Lover

Penne Lover

My Great Grandmother proly wouldn’t approve a lot of my Italian recipes because I jam them with cheese and garlic. A meaty, cheesy penne pasta life’s natural sleeping pill.

Dorita Pie

Dorita Pie

Taco casseroles are pretty close to my number one for slop food. This is a low hanging branch of King Ranch Chicken (beef) a common Tex-Mex dish…

Spaghetti & Fancy Pants Meatballs

Spaghetti & Fancy Pants Meatballs

Easy to knock out and depending on the head count of your herd, plenty leftover to freeze or make some sandwiches. I like Prego gravy in a pinch but whatever you dig go with that one.

Texas Style Steak Crescents

Texas Style Steak Crescents

Yup, quick anytime homemade stuffed steak crescents. Always pinching the dough ends tightly to make sure nothing got out, but it always did. I went on the wild side with these and just rolled the damn things.

TexMex Lasagna

TexMex Lasagna

This an old school thing easy to build and somewhat cheap depending on stuff you might want to add. I almost never make this the same as the last but the frame remains the same.

Steak -n- Cheddar Sliders

Steak -n- Cheddar Sliders

Really good steak sliders with just a few basic ingredients one being some excellent cheese. Next to it was a thick cut shredded cheddar by Tillamook. I’ve had it before but never realized how much better it is among the affordable cheese section.

Taco Dogs

Taco Dogs

These taco dogs were fantastic and similar to some dogs made a few weeks ago. Didn’t use our suggested amount of Taco Dust which confirmed the minimum amount suggested for one pound of beef is a ¼ cup. Either way, it’s gonna be messy cause queso ain’t containable.

Gulf-n-Grass Pina Colada Sticks

Gulf-n-Grass Pina Colada Sticks

Shrimp and fajitas wrapped in bacon and tropicaltized? I’m in! Will lay this build out in one because you’ll be going from sauce to sticks back to sauce and all at same time at times. Not hard, hardest part is building sticks. Anyways, pineapple will tenderize fajita meat like..

Roast Beef Cafeteria Style

Roast Beef Cafeteria Style

Since it’s Easter weekend my meat merchant has a lot of roasts on sale. Remember the days of a simple roast beef dinner? This recipe mimics what came out of our cafeterias back then. No pressed meats just whole foods now considered comfort food.

Mahgahsagna – Mangia Mangia Lasagna

Mahgahsagna – Mangia Mangia Lasagna

This is a less complex lasagna that’s a little pricey on the front but makes a lot of leftovers. One of my 1st recipes when I moved outa Mama’s house. Sweltering with cheese perfectly paired beef and pork masterpiece. Simple, cheap, fabulous on day one, and better on day two.

Nachos El Grande

Nachos El Grande

These nachos beat any drive through and the big plus was they weren’t soggy from a drive home. Thick queso that was mixed with Taco Dust uploaded to ground beef. It played a big part in my h*ll yeah moment.
