BBQ Brisket Part 3

We have made the infamous brisket several times, each time I said I would never make it again.  I guess I am a man who believes that if you have to put bbq sauce on a grilled piece of meat then you did something wrong.  I have had this brisket vs. tri-tip argument several times…

The BBQ Mafia, Cherry Wood Pit, and Beef Rib Roast

Wayne, Todd, and I decided that we were all gonna get together and BBQ.  When this happens, we pretty much cook ALL day, and eat all day.  It is pure BBQ bliss, and we always try something new.  We decided to replicate an Argentine asado dish that I had several times down in Patagonia.  Simply…

Bacon Crusted Cedar Plank Salmon with Maple-Ginger Glaze

I am always doing research on food and recipes.  I know I am coming into one of the best Oregon salmon seasons in the next few weeks so I am mentally preparing and conducting my research.  I know my clients are going to ask me what to do with their fresh caught salmon.  I came…

Smoked Balsamic Pork Loin

This recipe is so easy, just about anyone with a Traeger smoker or any bbq smoker can pull this off.  It is so easy, and produces such good flavor that my four year old ate half the loin by herself.  It is a simple marinade and takes 2 minutes to make, and for those of you…

Beef Brisket…???? I do not get it

What is the story with Beef Brisket?  Every BBQ place has it on their menu. All the Pit Masters have to make it in competitions and still HAS ANYONE EVER HAD GOOD BEEF BRISKET?  Every time I try it I think to my self “I dont get it”.   I think it is some what of…

What to do with a Bison Ribeye

As you already know I had to basically bait Marni the Monster to my house to have her help me with my blog format.  So she agreed to help me, as long as I agreed to cook for her.  I replied “choose your weapon”, she replied “Buffalo”.  I then replied “Thursday at 6pm, and make…

The Big Green Egg is a BAD ASS piece of Equipment

I recently added to my bbq arsenal the Big Green Egg after I read an article about it.  I have a few friends that have them and swear by them.  One family being the Huevos Ranchero people…The Hesters.  So my buddy Dave and I set off on a quest to learn about them at a dealer. …

The Perfect Steak

The quest for the perfect steak.  I have cooked steak in just about every scenerio out there.  My oldest daughter Megan refuses to order steaks at the finest steakhouses in the world (I say this because she ordered one on our trip to Europe once) and is always disappointed in the outcome because she believes…
