Country Ribs Texas Style

  Country Ribs Texas Style, we love ribs in any form. These are also known as country strips. They were thick and meaty with a bone in (Patti’s preference), but they also come boneless. 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!!!…

South of the Border Burnt Ends and Tips

Our South of the Border Burnt Ends and Tips were a bit zippy. I nailed it! These were like a ZIPPY meat candy. Note: Ken’s idea of zippy is a true tongue scorcher. Depending on your heat level you may want to tone these down. Patti and Rat (our little dog) couldn't eat them. For me, off the hook and jam packed with all the…

Reverse Seared Tomahawk Steaks

  Reverse Seared Tomahawk Steaks for Date Night!!! These were so good and tender with a “Kiss of Smoke”. We let these hang out in the smoke at 150* (65c) for an hour before removing them and cranking up the heat! Then, about 12 minutes at 450* (232c) for these beautiful steaks. They were fork tender and bone gnawing good!!! We seasoned these with “Loubier…

Then, we topped them with more cheese and…

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”.
