Lets talk about Steak Tartare

Monday, May 6, 2019 Food

 I am going to talk about Steak Tartare, I can remember as a child going to the butcher and having some raw ground meat seasoned with my step father, I was scared to try it at first, but after I got talked into it I decided it wasn’t half bad, The texture was something totally different and I couldn’t believe I was eating raw meat. This was my introduction to beef tartare.

What Is Steak Tartare?

 Steak tartare is a dish of finely chopped beef, served raw and mixed with any number of condiments but most commonly egg yolk, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, hot sauce, fresh herbs, and other seasonings. It’s often served with bread or toast of some kind, and is often  on restaurant menus as an appetizer...

Make Your Favorite Flavored Coffee Creamer Go Farther (and save money)

Monday, April 29, 2019 General  No comments

If you love your coffee with flavored creamer nearly as much as I do then this is for you. You already know that creamer isn’t all that cheap, but again, if you love it like I do you buy it anyway.

 This idea began one day while I was watching reruns of the George Burns and Gracie Allen TV show on youtube. Originally broadcast in the fifties, they were “live” as all television was back then. They didn’t have “commercials” per se, so they would include references to whatever product was their sponsor as part of the show. Through much of the shows run their sponsor was “Carnation Evaporated Milk, the milk from contented cows”. I became curious if it was as good in coffee as they claimed so I ordered some. Lo and behold it was as good as they said it was...

Time To Smoke Us A Beef Brisket

Monday, April 22, 2019 Food  One comment

It’s time to smoke us a Beef Brisket. This is a pretty popular cut of meat that people love to smoke. I am always seeing someone posting about cooking one in the smoker or on the grill. There are so many different ways people are cooking them these days. The brisket is essential in two parts the point and the flat, The point has more fat and the flat has more meat. The brisket has a grain, the point runs a different direction and most don’t notice this causing an issue with slicing the brisket. Look at the meat before cooking and when you are finished and you will notice.I wouldn’t worry about cutting the meat until you are finished cooking it, unless you would rather separate and cook separately, maybe making burnt ends with part of it like with the point.beef brisket

I decided to give this l...

The Best Crab Rangoon

Monday, April 1, 2019 Food  No comments

This recipe is for my wonderful wife’s Crab Rangoon. She makes the best I have had out side of a couple resturaunts. When she tells me she is going to be making it my mouth tends to start watering. I am always excited for it to be finished so I can dive in. I could eat these things all the time. I must say she is the one who actually got me addicted to it. I had eaten it before in restaurants, but once she made her home made batch I fell in love with it. Our children love it as well. She can never make enough it seems. We all tend to hang around waiting for the first one to be done, and see who will be the first to get one. I hope you enjoy ! Drop a comment and let me know if you try it.

 Pizza in your hand, and being able to take it on the go is great! These pizza pockets are like your own personal hot pocket, but homemade. Think of them as a calzone, but a little smaller.

 Pie crust can be used for many things like these  Pizza Pockets! The crispy, browned crust paired with creamy mozzarella and tangy pizza sauce is a great. It’s like a portable pizza, or a mini-calzone, or even like  those store-bought Hot Pockets—except flakier.

This soup my beautiful wife came up with after we always ordered a similar soup from a restaurant. At first she made it just like the original recipe or what she thought it could be. Through many changes this recipe is the best one to date. In order to share this we had to measure out the ingredients because she doesn’t cook by measurements. So you can add or subtract ingredients to your desires. Once you make it you can change it to make it the way you like it. She has made it with potatoes instead of beans, Chicken broth instead of Beef.  It really is just a basic recipe that can be changed in accordance to your own personal preferences. So break out the dutch oven and get started !  

She calls this recipe the Hubby’s Hearty Turkey Sausage soup...

Easy Recipe For BBQ Smoked Pork Shoulder

Monday, February 25, 2019 Food  No comments

Who doesn’t like pulled pork? I know I do, so we are going to talk about smoking a pork shoulder. I don’t get real crazy with the spices and rubs, I try and keep it pretty simple. I like to get the taste of the meat and the smoke just as much as the rubs I use. This is why I don’t go over board with spices and rubs.I like to use enough to give good flavor and a nice bark on my meat. There is a video below to show my process of preparing the shoulder,


1 Pork Shoulder

Sea Salt

Black Pepper

Santa Fe Coffee rub

Carolina Pit Powder

When I’m doing a pork shoulder I like low and slow, so I start up my Green Mountain grill and set the temperature to 225 degrees and that’s the temp I will be cooking at till the meat reaches an internal temperature of 205 degrees...

Grilling Accessories you may want to try

Monday, February 11, 2019 Food  No comments

I decided I would do a article on grilling accessories I’ve bought and gotten as a gifts for my grilling and smoking hobby.

Let’s begin with some meat claws great shredding your pork shoulder for pulled pork, or any other meat you are looking to shred . These things make shredding your meat up very easy and kinda fun to do also. They are a great cooking tool to add to your arsenal.

I also love using this rib rack for cooking my ribs. I like to use these when in need of making more room so I don’t have to lay the slabs of ribs flat on the grates. They work great ! If you are wanting to make more room for more ribs these are a must have.

I picked up another tool to add to my cooking Arsenal. I grabbed this waterproof thermometer  off of Amazon after reading reviews, it seemed like a good choice. If you are like me you want to make sure all the meat you cook on your grill or in your smoker or even on your stove or in the oven cook to the proper internal temp.

Easy Poor Mans BBQ Burnt Ends This is BBQ Meat Candy

Monday, January 21, 2019 Food  No comments

I have heard this called poor mans burnt end,s but I like to call it meat candy, it’s so good and sweet it taste just like candy.

Let’s start by using a beef chuck roast. I start out by seasoning it with salt, pepper, onion powder, John Henry’s Big daddy smoke house rub, apple wood rub. I cover the whole roast and rub it in and then let it sit in the fridge over night.

The next day I will remove from the fridge and start to chunk up the meat (cutting the meat ).

Once I have it cut into chunks I will put it all in a big bowl and add the same seasoning I rubbed it down with and will put lid on the bowl and shake it all together to make sure all the meat is covered in the seasoning.

Once I am finished with that I will lay them out and get them ready for the smoker.

Make Some Slow Cooker Chicken Stock

Monday, January 14, 2019 Food

There’s something so satisfying about making your own chicken stock, and doing it in the slow cooker is a total set-it-and-forget-it exercise.

After we’ve eaten our roasted chicken and all that remains is the bird’s carcass, I begin snapping bones for chicken stock.

How to Make Chicken Stock in the Slow Cooker

I prefer to make chicken stock in the slow cooker on weeknights when we’ve eaten roasted chicken for dinner. I toss the newly disassembled carcass into the pot then add vegetables, herbs, and water.

Next, I set my slow cooker to low and let it simmer all night.

I typically strain it in the morning, but if I’m too busy, I continue to let it simmer away until my work day is done. Twelve to 24 hours is a perfectly reasonable amount of time for chicken stock to simmer.

I wouldn’...

Peanut Butter and Jelly Jalapeño poppers wrapped in bacon

Making sweet and spicy jalapeño poppers wrapped in bacon, these things may sound weird but go so well together.

# Preparing the jalapeño pepper

First you start by coring out your peppers. Some like to slice the pepper in half,but I’d rather keep it whole. I start by slicing the top off and using a core tool to remove the insides of the pepper.

# Filling The Pepper With Your Ingredients

I am using the peanut butter jelly mixture called “goober” it has the mixture of the two already done for you. I like to use a cake decorating bag to fill the pepper. I fill the bag with my desired amount and then squeeze into the jalapeño peppers. Then I wrap a piece of bacon around the pepper...
