Smoked Turkey & Cheese Enchiladas

These were quick and easy to put together and can be put together the night before. Then, on to the grill for another “Kiss of Smoke". These were gobbled right…

I am working on a brat that I can make my house brat. Meaning there is always some in the fridge for snacks and sandwiches. So, we did this one using both natural casing and collagen…

Coffee Infused Buckboard Bacon

  Coffee Infused Buckboard Bacon, our new love is makin’ bacon. There is something special about making your own bacon. It’s very easy to do and better than any store-bought bacon we’ve ever had. That said there is no such thing as “Bad” bacon, just some is better than others. It’s Bacon Candy… We cured it for 14 days, and then we did a 2…

Scotch Eggs

  Scotch Eggs, A friend of ours showed us this little trick, and we have been working on it for three weeks now and made it into a work of art. These things are WONDERFUL; so far everyone who has tried one says “Oh My Gosh, these are great!!!” And being the Chef those words are music to my ears. We always sold out of…

Homemade Jalapeno Cheese Bratwurst

Homemade Jalapeno Cheese Bratwurst, my love of sausage making continues. I was surprised at how little heat there was in these brats, but they were jam packed with flavor! Sausage making is easier than you might think, keep in mind that man has been making some 3000 years before Christ. They had only stone tools then and today you can get a decent grinder/stuffer for…

Shrimp au Gratin

Shrimp au Gratin for our date night this week we wanted something light, but especially delicious. We’ve also gotten requests for Lenten recipes. This recipe would also work really well with lobster, bay scallops (the smaller ones) or your favorite combination. We served this over “Patti’s Fabulous Fettuccine”. Then, we mixed the leftovers together for a special lunch the next day served with mimosa’s made…

Grilled Peaches Redux

Grilled Peaches Redux, big, beautiful peaches are in season again and Patti brought home some nice one for us to grill. Grilled Peaches are a simple dessert that folks just love. Every time Patti makes these for someone the first time she gets a less than an ENTHUSIASTIC RESPONSE. But in the end, they always fuss over how good they were and always request them…

Rattlesnake Eggs

Rattlesnake Eggs, we love tailgating! It’s a fun way to get away from it all, enjoy nature and hang with the dogs. Of course, we have to take a grill with us and the Green Mountain Grills Davy Crockett is just perfect. It’s small enough to pop in the back of the car and big enough to grill/smoke just about anything. Ken suggested we make…
