So, I got my meat grinder/stuffer out, dug up my old recipes and started making sausage. I made these Beer Brats for Patti. Sausage making is easier than you…

Easy Smoked Piglet

  Easy Smoked Piglet, we did a 35-pound piglet on the Green Mountain Grill this week. I have to say I was surprised at just how easy it was to do. In fact, the hardest part of the whole process was getting the pig here in Southern California. Like trying to find Tri-Tip in South Carolina, you can do it, but it’s an adventure!!! I…

Country Ribs Texas Style

Either way is just right seasoned with Briggs True Texas Seasoning and thickly basted with Briggs True Bourbon Bacon Barbeque Sauce and a “Kiss of Smoke”. So tender, and so Good!!!…

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…
