Tonight I did something a little different, I took Chef of the Future’s Southwestern Rub and mixed a few tablespoons with some red wine and olive oil. I let this sit for awhile and get all happy. Then…

It’s been cold here (for Ca.) and we wanted to make something a little heartier, plus Ken made us some of his awesome smoked cheese! Patti and I have…

Argentinean Matambres

  Traditional Argentinean Matambres, I have spent the last 2 months researching Argentinean and Gaucho cooking. Fascinating. Lots of interesting styles of cooking and sites most of which I can’t understand what they say. One thing I learned about the Matambre is that there is a traditional style and then from there it is more a free style, anything you can dream and we sure…

Carne Guisada

  Carne Guisada, since we’ve been selling BBQ’d tri-tip roasts at the Murrieta Farmer’s Market, it’s become one of our favorite cuts of beef. Super lean and full of flavor, plus it’s so versatile. Tonight we cubed up a three pounder, tossed it with seasoned flour and some of our favorite Mexican spices. Then, off to the Louisiana Wood Pellet Grill for some smoky flavor…

Slow Smoked Chuckie

Slow Smoked Chuckie was truly the best chuck roast we’ve ever done. It was tender and juicy and full of beef flavor after being injected with Butcher BBQ Prime Injection mixed with beef stock and frequently mopped with Ken’s special mop sauce. We gave a “Kiss of Coffee” with Amazing Tube and our mop sauce. An 18 hour smoke gave it a nice bark and…

Firehouse Steaks

Patti made a cold green bean salad to go with our steak fries and steaks. We added a little zip to the fries with some of Pete’s Firehouse rub, original. Patti and I…

Patti remembered onions and peppers, too; goodies we got from the Murrieta Farmer’s Market. Thanks Engle…

Caveman Beef Ribs

  Caveman Beef Ribs, good, meaty beef ribs are almost impossible to find. For years all I have ever seen are racks of bone with most of the meat trimmed away. We were out looking for beef short ribs and Juan Carlos the meat manager at the El Toro market showed us these. He cuts his riblets from this big slab of beef ribs. These…

Big Beef Ribs Texas Style

Today we took them a few steps farther with 2 days in a Chipotle/Pepper brine and smoked them for 6 ½ hours. These ribs were jam packed with that big beef flavor that we love. Big Beef Ribs Texas Style are very tender and juicy with just…

Blue Bison Burgers

Blue Bison Burgers! Who says that camp cooking is boring? Ken wanted something different, but it had to be a big, tasty burger. Patti picked the cheese for the stuffing and blue cheese really rang her bell. Tangy blue cheese was just right added to our Smoked Garlic Sauce over the burger. Delicious. We have always loved creating AWESOME and hearty camp meals for breakfast,…

Southwestern Beer Can Burgers

Southwestern Beer Can Burgers, we have been seeing folks post their beer can burgers for the last few weeks, all of them looking good. We wanted to take it to the next level by adding a “Southwestern” twist to it. We started with the very best ground beef: Zaycon Fresh ground sirloin and blending that with some beef chorizo for 1 pound burgers with a…
