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.

Tator Tots and Taco Parts

Tator Tots and Taco Parts

I get excited when I see a drive-thru joint advertising fried potatoes covered in stuff usually cheese. The problem is when you get it home it doesn’t look like the picture. In my never-ending quest to

Mushroom Bacon Swiss Burger

Mushroom Bacon Swiss Burger

A favorite all time burger of mine but I have to admit this one was too big. You see a lot of huge burgers on Instagram and I let it go to my head. Although a great burger, I like a burger I can control with one hand.

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.

Smoked Brisket Bruschetta

Smoked Brisket Bruschetta

A favorite and alternative to nachos are these versatile little morsels of love. This recipe takes some planning if you don’t have cooked brisket lying around. I did

The Corkey Deer Sausage Chili Cheese Dog

The Corkey Deer Sausage Chili Cheese Dog

My bud Corkey made me these one day, and it instantly turned into my favorite hot dog. This was done with deer chili and deer links but since people including me don’t always have venison laying around consider other ingredients

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.

Beef Fajita Quesadilla

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.

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 Brisket Texas Style

Smoked Brisket Texas Style

There’s nothing quite like a perfectly smoked Texas brisket. The aroma alone is enough to make your mouth water and your stomach growl with anticipation. But let’s not forget about the taste – oh, the taste! It’s like a party in your mouth,...
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.

Barbacoa Shrimp Tacos

Barbacoa Shrimp Tacos

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.

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.

Meatball Poboy

Meatball Poboy

I saw a Subway commercial and the rest of the day a sub was the focus. The meatballs are a little different than what my Grandmother made but pretty good and a nice twist

Fajita Tacos

Fajita Tacos

Just grilled fajitas, homemade tortillas, cheese and a shot of Irish Salsa. Irish Salsa is our problem child mostly

Steak Baguettes

Steak Baguettes

Probably my favorite steak is the flat iron or blade steak. This is left over blade steak we used Dawgs Bark on as a seasoning. The inspiration for these steak baguettes was for testing our other seasoning Cluck.

Beef Taco Salad

Beef Taco Salad

This salad is straightforward to make and open for more ingredients you’d like to add. This salad doesn’t have it, but I usually will cook a can of Ranch style beans in the taco meat.

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

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
