Bourbon Bacon Pork Sirloin Chops

Bacon Bourbon Pork Sirloin Chops, Off the Hook!!! Patti picked up these beautiful chops and I wanted to try something a little different. Thinking I would put a cast iron griddle on the grill and see what happens. The Bourbon Bacon sauce caramelized nicely, adding a ton of flavor to these moist and tender chops. We did these on our Louisiana Grill/Smoker with Mountain Maple…

Carnitas Margarita Style

Carnitas Margarita Style was better than GOOD it was a fiesta for the senses! Carnitas Margarita Style with a “Kiss of Smoke" on our Green Mountain Grill smelled wonderful throughout the neighborhood. This was a big Dutch oven recipe and we had more than a few dinners this week. We served them as soft tacos and over rice, plus sharing with neighbors. A splash (or…

El Burrito del Diablo

  El Burrito del Diablo or The devil's Burrito. We love fiery beef burritos, so we thought we would smoke up a pot of La carne del Diablo or The Devil’s Beef on the gasser. A 4-pound chuck roast, 5 different Chile peppers, onions and garlic for a 5 hour cook. All with a “Kiss of Smoke” from a wedgie loaded with GMG’s Texas Blend…

BBQ Chuck Roast Sliders

BBQ Chuck Roast Sliders, we love the BIG BEEF flavor of a chuck roast with a "Kiss of Smoke". With game day and tailgating season coming up BBQ Chuck Roast Sliders sounds like a “Win Win” to us. This cook was fun because I got to use a 10-cent yard sale treasure, Grandma’s old roaster. Big beef flavor in a slider with smoked garlic, onions…

White Trash Potatoes

  White Trash Potatoes was a recipe Patti’s dear friend Mickey Rose brought to our Women’s Ministry dinner. We changed a few of the ingredients for a potluck we were going to and gave it a “Kiss of Smoke” with a wedgie. This recipe works great if you want to double it or put it together the night before. We also plan to take it…

Slow Smoked Carnitas

Slow Smoked Carnitas, we love a good Carnitas and all the different ways to enjoy it. I think this is the best Carnitas I have ever enjoyed much less made. The meat was so tender, lightly covered with a savory sauce, lightly kissed with a fruit wood smoke. Over the top!! One of the nice things about getting old is that you can’t remember the…

Carne Asada, Let’s Roll

Carne Asada, Let’s Roll, I love anything you can wrap in tortillas and Patti found some marinated carne asada at the Mexican market on sale and I could not resist. The thing I like most about doing carne asada is that you can go in any direction you can dream of with different salsas, peppers and cheeses for topping. Patti and I have set one…

Firehouse Stuffed Meatloaf

  Firehouse Stuffed Meatloaf, Winter weather, even in California, begs for meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Our friend Pete makes award winning sauces and rubs. One taste and you’ll know why. We also really like that salt is never the first ingredient. Of course, if you’re making this recipe for your local firehouse you might want to triple the recipe. Patti and I have set one…

Pecan Scotch Pie

Pecan Scotch Pie was born because pecan pie is Ken’s favorite. We already have a wonderful recipe for pecan pie with chocolate, so we wanted something different. Patti had an ‘aha” moment and remembered we had butterscotch chips from a recipe we apparently forgot all about. This pie turned out crunchy and creamy with an extra whisper of pecan smoke because we used Mountain Maple pellets in a wedgie for that “Kiss of Smoke”.
