Pulled Pork Feb 2017

I have always cooked all briskets and pulled pork using the Texas Crutch. The results have always been tender and juicy in a short amount of time. I have been told that this comes at the expense of the bark. So thought I would throw caution to the wind and see how the other half live! With that Jen went to Central Market and picked up a nice 6.69-pound butt. »

Pork Spiedies

I am a big fan of all of Weber cookbooks. Last year, they gave us New American Barbecue that visits a lot of different BBQ traditions across the USA. In flipping through this book, I found my favorite new thing – the Spiedie! These are sandwiches (hoagies) that come all the way from Binghamton, NY and can be found all over Central New York. They consist of cubes of chicken, pork, or beef that have been marinated and cooked quickly over a pit. »

Easter Ham

Every year for Easter my family traditionally has a ham and this year was no exception. Jen started looking for a ham three weeks before Easter. It seemed like a reasonable time to start looking, but we had a lot of problems finding one! In the end, HEB Alon market came through with us with this nice 8.42 pound bone in ham. I pulled it out of the fridge at 7 am the day of Easter. »

St Louis Style Ribs

I have only cooked St Louis Style Ribs once and they didn’t turn out all that well. This year I was out for vindication and added them to my Things I want to BBQ This Year list. (So far I am 2 for 8! I need to get moving) I usually like to buy unseasoned ribs and rub them down with my favorite rub, but this time I decided to try the preseasoned Costco ones. »

Pulled Pork

For my daughter’s second birthday we decided to do a barbeque at home. I was trying to decided what to cook and after some debate I opted for pulled pork because I hadn’t done it for a while. More specifically, I haven’t made it since my daughter’s first birthday. (I smell the start of a tradition!) Flash forward to Costco. I always like to pay their meat counter a visit ever time I stop in. »
