Corn Confetti Salad

Corn Confetti Salad

This is a great trick to make a basic corn side into a full flavored masterpiece. It’s not at all like Cornsuello and I’d say just a delicious depending on your mood.

Baked Potato Salad

Baked Potato Salad

This potato salad was a side dish from my last smoked brisked that I thought it needed a home. Thankfully, I kept notes while making it because it’s a Super simple.

Eleven Egg Ultimate Breakfast Lasagna

Eleven Egg Ultimate Breakfast Lasagna

Went to our FB page to see what I’ve auto-posted to get a little kick in the pants for dinner. I don’t know the amounts the video recipe used, but I feel I pegged it.

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

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.

Tater Tot Casserole

Tater Tot Casserole

Another tater tot casserole that turned out pretty good. I often wonder how many times the Classic Tater Tot Casserole got tricked out after Jim Bob Duggar bragged about it on national TV.

Texas Butter Beans

Texas Butter Beans

Excellent Texas butter beans recipe I’m sure you’ll love. There’s no Texas magical ingredient making a butter bean a “Texas butter bean”. Dry bean recipes in Texas kind of lay along the lines of gumbo meaning use whatcha got. Ever heard “everything is bigger in Texas”?

Smoked Pork Shoulder, That’s a Wrap

Smoked Pork Shoulder, That’s a Wrap

Won’t know until the party but a piece fell off mid stroke and I bout had one. I usually only inject birds and likely added an amendment to pork shoulder as a Texas Butter state law.

Granny’s Cabbage Taquitos

Granny’s Cabbage Taquitos

Long time ago one of my elder customers used to call me early in the morning to let me know to stop by at lunch. She’d always have me Tupperware packed with the “surprise” lunch ranging from chicken wings to cabbage rolls.

Pinto Beans, Just Add Rice

Pinto Beans, Just Add Rice

A simple framework for some pintos you can trick out into borracho beans or as is. I use this base for red and butter beans. Hell, you could use almost any bean…

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.

1st Round of Ribs on DIY Smoker

1st Round of Ribs on DIY Smoker

First ribs on an incomplete electric smoker but complete enough to test. I am excited because no worries about a store bought electric smoker catching fire again and I don’t have to tend to a fire I don’t have time for.

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…

Smoked Sow Shoulder

Smoked Sow Shoulder

Been playing around with smoking pork (mostly ribs) different ways for testing product and to beat on chest, at home, alone… My chest hurts. This is a loooong smoke on my DIY electric smoker because it’s so nerded out

Wicked Potato Salad

Wicked Potato Salad

This is a wetter salad and doesn’t contain mustard. It’s great, easy, and ranks high, may be my new normal.

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.

Baked Ribs and Cheddar Mash

Baked Ribs and Cheddar Mash

I do ribs all kinds of ways via homemade electric smoker, charcoal grill slow smoke, a true smoker, and the oven. There are several techniques to smoking ribs but in the long run, low-n-slow is baking with smoke.

Grilled Pork and Texas Butter Beans

Grilled Pork and Texas Butter Beans

Grilled on my hibachi but any method will work. You just need med-high heat and hear a little sizzle when placed on the grill. I always sit with outdoor grilling because you may need to move things when/if you coals flare up.

Carnitas Biscuits

Carnitas Biscuits

More testing with Pepper Bee I decided to use up a can of biscuits waiting for me to use. The meat is carnitas or typically called pulled pork when you live north of the dirty south. We baked these but you could use a slow cooker or even stovetop on low. I like to bake because I cut the pork in pieces and flip while baking. This will produce the brown crispy sides I remember at a punk.

Crock pot Pork Roast

Crock pot Pork Roast

I’m not a big fan of smoking pork butt. I can’t seem to sync a solid recipe that guarantees moist and tender. For whatever reason, I once again picked up a pork butt

Brisket Sausage Sandwich

Brisket Sausage Sandwich

If you don’t have a smoker nor time to tend to it then no worries you can bake briskets too. The only difference is it’s not smokey. The sausage was my favorite in the sausage section just cooked in pan prior to the sandwich build. Pretty wicked combo I’ve seen but never tried.

Rusty Pulled Pork on Texas Toast

Rusty Pulled Pork on Texas Toast

This is a pulled pork sandwich made with our seasoning Biddy and soaked in RUST. Topped with a simple blue cheese dressing and fries on the side.
