Ham and Bean Soup is a great way to get extra mileage out of a Double Smoked Ham. You take the leftover smoked ham bones and slow simmer them on the stove in a pot of beans. I always make several hams around the holidays, so I stash away a couple bones just so I can make this ham and bean soup recipe on a cold winter day. I also try to leave a decent amount of meat on the bone to make sure our soup ends up nice and meaty. You can always supplement with chopped ham if you feel yours is too picked over.
One of the easiest (and most delicious) holiday meals you can make on your barbecue pit is my double smoked honey glazed ham recipe. It’s called “double smoked” because you start off with a pre-cooked (and smoked) ham, then use your smoker to warm it up. The whole thing gets topped off with a thick coating of sweet honey glaze before serving!
Earlier this week I made an appearance on local news station Fox 4 KC to help promote the upcoming American Royal BBQ Contest. I was showcasing my Smokey Kansas City Pit Bean recipe that we will be turning into the judges later this weekend. This bbq bean recipe is sweet, spicy, meaty, smokey, and feature the bold flavors of our Smokey Kansas City Barbecue Sauce! Smokey Kansas City Pit Beans have been a multi-year winner at the American Royal and will be a sure hit at your next barbecue.
A lot of people like to use a steak sauce on their steaks. The best part about making your own steak sauce is that you can adjust the ingredients to your own liking. This homemade steak sauce recipe browns up nicely when cooked and tastes similar to the popular A.1. Sauce. It yields about 2 1/2 cups of homemade steak sauce and pairs perfectly with The Baron’s Steak Seasoning Recipe and The Baron’s Steak Marinade Recipe. Enjoy!.
With summer quickly approaching, grilled steaks are on everyone’s menu. To help you grill flavorful restaurant quality steaks in your own backyard I’m going to do a series of posts dedicated to the layers of flavor that go into creating a delicious grilled steak. And what better way to start than with my Baron’s Steak Seasoning recipe!
“What is my favorite BBQ recipe?” That is a question I have been asked more times than I can remember, and something I cannot answer for sure. Mainly because I have been on a quest to find the perfect BBQ recipe for 40 to 50 years and haven’t found it yet, and knowing me I never will! Saying all that, my favorite cuisine is Asian and my favorite protein is duck (domestic or wild). So, many years ago I decided to combine all of my passions (Asian/duck/BBQ) into this Szechuan Smoked Duck recipe!
Ever since the EAT Barbecue sauces and rubs made their way into our warehouse last week, I’ve been anxious to give them a test run. Their arrival just happened to coincide with Memorial Day weekend, which also happened to be a rare off-weekend for our competition barbecue team, Burnt Finger BBQ. Since I’m always looking for reasons to fire up the smoker, we decided to use the long weekend to put the EAT Barbecue products to use and see how they perform first-hand.
Birthdays only come once a year, and milestone birthdays only happen once in a lifetime. It just so happens that I recently passed one of those milestone birthdays and ticked over into the big 30’s. Some people like to spend these occasions relaxing on a beach, or sulking about father time catching up with them, but I saw this as a prime opportunity to expand my barbecue horizons into a category of cooking that every great pitmaster must dabble in. So I treated myself to a pre-birthday present by purchasing a La Caja China hog roasting box and set out on my first pig roast!
This weekend I was watching reruns of Alton Brown’s Good Eats (one of my all time favorite cooking shows), and I caught an episode that was completely dedicated to cooking with alcohol…well, mainly wine and beer. Lately I have taken an even more increased interest in incorporating these flavors into my own cooking, so I quickly hit the record button on my DVR. Coincidentally, Alton proceeded to breakdown the science behind two specific recipes that I have been experimenting with extensively myself; wine marinated lamb steaks and beer bread. But that wasn’t the nugget of information that piqued my interest.
