One of my most popular posts is “How to Smoke Ribs on a Gas Grill“. That recipe uses baby back ribs and is not timed for St. Louis Cut Spare Ribs. So, I decided to do a post on how to smoke St. Louis Spare Ribs on a gas grill. This method is a twist on competition ribs and the end product is amazing. We start by smoking the ribs and then we wrap them to finish. They are a must try!
My father-in-law is a huge fan of fried shrimp. The last time he came to visit we decided to dust off the deep fryer and make some fried shrimp. We started with some fresh shrimp, dredged them in egg wash and coated them with bbq rub seasoned bread crumbs. The results were fantastic! The tastiest shrimp that I have ever had!
The 1st Annual Smithfield BBQ Classic was one of the best BBQ contests that I have ever been to! The location, the guinea pig style competition and the company of Smithfield were all great. The town of Smithfield is charming and the Smithfield staff were hospitable and amazing! Arlie Bragg and Big Poppa Smokers put on a great competition. I mentioned before that this competition was a guinea pig competition. This means that all of the teams received their meat from the organizer (Amazing Smithfield Prime pork and a Snake River Farms Wagyu Brisket). Yep, everyone started with the same meat. I love this concept. It also included a Kids Que contest (Liam competed) and a delicious pot luck dinner the night before the competition.
Pork Belly Burnt Ends are the most delicious things that may ever touch your tongue. They are quite literally the best thing that I have ever made. We like to call them Melt In Your Mouth (MIYM) Bacon Cubes. These grew out of necessity and then turned into a sensation at my house. I had a pork belly that needed to be used and I did not have the time to cure it. So I cubed it, smoked it, and turned it into magical bacon goodness. If you can’t tell by now, I freaking love these things.
A double smoked ham is the perfect holiday meal. First, it is delicious! Second, it is cooked outside on a grill or smoker and as a result you have an open oven inside for all of your side dishes. Finally, it is fantastic looking and smelling. This meal is a show stopper and will make your guests’ jaws hit the floor. Who doesn’t want to have a show stopping centerpiece for their holiday meal?! This dish utilizes a fully cooked ham that you smoke and reheat on your grill or smoker. It is so delicious!
Smoked Bacon Wrapped Cheese Stuffed Chorizo Meatballs is a really long name, but super accurate and perfect for this amazing appetizer. This is an awesome appetizer that is perfect for tailgating, cookouts, sports games or any day. The spicy, smokey and cheesey flavors are a great combination. If you want a great appetizer and have access to an outdoor grill this recipe is for you!
As you all know, I love to barbecue. Smoking meats is a passion of mine. One of my favorite things to smoke, is chicken wings. The smokey flavor, crispy skin and tender meat, is a perfect combination. Once cooked, toss the wings in your favorite sauce and enjoy! These are definitely a must try meal.
After Labor Day, I had a lot of leftover pulled pork. So I decided to use it to make my favorite dish, Pizza! I make pizza with all of my leftovers. However, this one was so good that I had to share. I used my leftover sauce, some thinly sliced red onion, green pepper for crunch and of course some delicious pulled pork. It was one of the best pizzas that I have made. I love it!
Today Thermoworks is releasing the new Thermapen Mk4. This is like Christmas over here at Savory Reviews. We love our Thermapen and Thermoworks products so much. Just like most people can’t wait for the new Apple products, we can’t wait for new Thermoworks products. The new Thermapen looks like the old thermapen, but has an auto-rotating screen, back-lit display and uses a common AAA battery. No more searching for 2032 batteries. We have AAA batteries everywhere. The Thermapen Mk4 is going to be the coolest tool in my BBQ arsenal. The best thing is that it is only $99. The classic superfast thermapens are still available and have dropped in price to $79. Check out our Full Review Here!
I love barbecue! That meaty/smokey flavor that can only be accomplished after hours of smoking meat over hot coals. I do it all of the time, but sometimes you want great barbecue in less than 8 hours. That is why I love chicken. It cooks fast (in terms of barbecue at least), takes on smoke … Read moreEasy Pulled Chicken
