Smoked Meatball Subs

One of my favorite meals as a kid was meatball subs. Every now and then my mom would serve it as spaghetti and we all let her know that Meatball Subs are what we want. There is something about each bite sinking into the flavorful meatballs with the gooey cheese that I couldn’t get enough of! Now, it was only when I became an adult that I made my own and I smoke them every single time! Smoked Meatball Subs are a staple in my household! We make them for family dinners, when we host or even for tailgating, we...

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken

Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Chicken is the perfect recipe for any occasion! I love putting a spin on Jalapeno Poppers and the crispy bacon gives a great crunch right before you get into the creamy and cheese-stuffed jalapeños that burst with flavor! One key factor is seasoning the chicken properly and having the proper temperature for the smoking so it doesn’t end up dry. I have made tons and tons of bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers and every combination has been phenomenal. Recently my wife and I went over to a good friend’s house for a casual BBQ and they were...

Smoked Spanish Chicken Halves

Easy and delicious Smoked Spanish Chicken Halves starts with a delicious dry rub made of simple but tasty seasonings. Once the chicken is seasoned it is placed on a wire rack on top of a dish filled with potatoes, carrots, zucchini and squash. While the chicken smokes, the drippings caught by this pan of veggies add flavor to every bite. One key technique to this cook is making the raw Spanish paste that is pasted onto the chicken when it reaches 145 degrees internally. It leaves a crust on the chicken with layers of flavors. If you haven’t figured it...

Loaded Beef Rib Tater Tots

One of my favorable memories as a kid is going to the ball game and enjoying nachos. It was a tradition for my family and it has always been with me since. Another favorite from my youth is Tater Tots, they have taken the place of the nachos whenever I am in charge of cooking. Let’s fast forward some time with some experience under my belt with smoking/bbq and what has been created is my Loaded Beef Rib Tater Tots. I used short beef ribs, they are highly marbled and when you smoke them properly they shred like butter with...

Beer Braised Sausage and Peppers

If you haven’t had beer braised sausage and peppers then you are missing out. The sausage absorbs all of the flavor from the beer and ingredients when it’s braised leaving every bite juicy, tender, and delicious. First, the pepper and onions go in, then the Italian sausage with the beer. 30 minutes later you are left with one of the best sausages you will ever have. I like to use Honey Brown Lager for my braising with this cook. Sweet Italian sausage links, organic peppers, and onions with freshly baked bouillon rolls make this a simple cook. There is a...

Chimichurri Steak Sandwich with a Cheese Blanket

Chimichurri is definitely my favorite sauce for a steak. There are plenty of creations for sauces with steak but I would rather have my steak with just salt and pepper. Typically, with a quality cut of beef, this is all you need for seasoning because the flavor of beef steals the show.  There is something about the Argentinian sauce that elevates the flavor of beef. It consists of parsley, cilantro, shallots, garlic, olive oil and vinegar finished with salt to bring the best out of these flavors. There are many variations of Chimichurri and they all have been tasty but...

Tex Mex Beef Sliders

Sliders have taken the population by storm as of late. Mainly because you can create so many variations of sliders. My family makes sliders once a week at a minimum. They are convenient and smaller portions that work for my kids, family or get-togethers. These Tex Mex Beef Sliders are by far the best recipe I have made so far. I used chuck roast so it took some time to smoke and braise it but other than that the prep was easy and the flavors were simply delicious! I used a chili packet, beef onion packet and a few extra...
