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.

Scalloped Potatoes

Scalloped Potatoes

My Mamaw used to make scalloped potatoes for breakfast all the time when we’d visit her in New Boston, TX. Granted I hopped them up up a bit with bacon and jalapenos.

Beef Fajita Quesadilla

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.

Steak Butter

If you are a fan of topping off your steak with a pat of butter here’s your next obsession. Very easy and perfect blend using Dawgs Bark.

Garlic Baked Onion

Garlic Baked Onion

Baked onion topped with garlic bang. Mr. Rodgers used to make these at the lease thrown on the campfire. Baked onions are a terrific side to any campfire buffet where everybody pick’n. Whether at the camp or home, with a piece of foil we gat ya covered.

Kidney Baked Beans

Kidney Baked Beans

It seems I always have to add yum to canned baked beans. This is a synonym to baked beans and easy to flip. If you are an advocate of dry beans do it.

Hearty Smoked Short Rib Dinner

Hearty Smoked Short Rib Dinner

Smoked this in my brick pit (favorite) because they hold heat so well and keep the Texas heat out so the temps stay somewhat stable.

Use what you have available but I promise beef cheek isn’t as gross as it sounds. Beef cheeks rich flavorful and tender taste will change your outlook for life.

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.

Smoke’n Ribs Practice

Smoke’n Ribs Practice

Was doing a test with Dawgs Bark and pork baby backs. There is at least one other recipe on here for smoked ribs that was likely seasoned and cooked differently. Both recipes are great and I’d say the main difference is I used

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

Hot Roast Beef Swiss Cheese Melt

Hot Roast Beef Swiss Cheese Melt

Making hot roast beef sandwiches is easy and you can’t go wrong cooking the roast beef at the perfect low temperature. Whatever you dress the sandwich with is secondary to perfectly cooked roast beef. You can keep an oven’s temperature under control pretty easy but when you step into a 1000 gallon pit it’s a different set of rules.

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 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

Texas Butter’s Turkeygasim

Texas Butter’s Turkeygasim

The 1st fried turkey I ever had I thought was the best turkey I ever had. This way flips that fry trick and this is easily done in the oven if you are smoker deficient. Not ready for the cranberry influx I decided to do a primer with Jesus seeds.

Texan Swedish Meatballs

Texan Swedish Meatballs

Don’t know what’s in a true Swedish meatball but I’m filing them under Swede. The gravy is pretty close to Swedish, I think… If you’re Texan and got outa state guest yer gonna have to pull out the Texas pasta or it’s Texas pride abuse. State Law

Pork Stuffed Pork Loin

Pork Stuffed Pork Loin

Decided to roll a loin with a stuffing I’ve been rolling around in my head in an effort to finish out another recipe. I smoked this one lightly but it’s not necessary I was really also seasoning a new smoker…

Chicken n Rice Plus Key Lime Chum

Chicken n Rice Plus Key Lime Chum

Made a typical chicken and rice dish that initially I was going incorporate lime in it. Changed my mind because I knew I wouldn’t care for the leftovers. So I made a lime chum of sorts I could make once a year…

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Pepperoni Pinwheels

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Pepperoni Pinwheels

These turned out a lot better than I thought they would and pretty easy as far as getting dinner done. Sort of a pain cutting the chicken breast so thin especially if you don’t have a slicer.

Fajita Shrimps Boats

Fajita Shrimps Boats

These sammies are really good but I swung and missed a couple times making them. Confessions… If using fajita meat it is important to fillet all the membrane off the meat. A lot of cuts of beef will work with this but

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.

Flat Iron Meat Roses

Flat Iron Meat Roses

Flat iron steak cut into strips rolled into roses and baked. Made some cilantro chum to spread within the roses. Depending on mood virtually any sauce will work. Warning from experience this is not an option for a traditional rose giving event, it is a supplement…

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..

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.
