Our good friends over at Thermoworks have released a new wireless thermometer called “Smoke“. The Smoke is a wireless thermometer that includes two probes. That way, you can wirelessly monitor both the pit and the food. As a barbecuer, this is important. The proper temperature is the difference between delicious bbq and charcoal. Plus, since this is all done wirelessly, you can do it while watching your favorite game or snoozing on the couch. We tested this thermometer while making a nice Honey Garlic Smoked Chicken. The chicken provided approximately 2 hours for us to test the thermometer and check its limits. The thermometer performed flawlessly and actually exceeded expectations. Check out our review below.
Since the snow has melted we have been itching to grill. So I decided to dust off the Weber Grill and make some chicken. I wanted to use only the ingredients that I had in the house, so I raided the pantry. I had soy sauce and honey. Boom, honey soy chicken. Sounds like a winning combination to me. Since I wanted to maximize surface area of the chicken that absorbed the marinade, I decided to cube the chicken and skewer it. This was a great combination which is going to be added to our regular dinner rotation. You have to try this.
I love shrimp so much that I purchase it whenever it is on sale. I don’t mind buying frozen shrimp as all of the shrimp sold in supermarkets/fish markets where I live sell previously frozen shrimp. Therefore, I like to thaw the shrimp under my own conditions. I usually thaw it in a strainer that is covered in the refrigerator for at least 12 hours before I want to cook them. This recipe is simple, but it packs a ton of flavor.
I have been trying to come up with a new competition rib glaze that will add a nice sheen and flavor to my ribs. I tried this recipe out but it was not a right fit for my rib flavor profile. However, it was amazing and worked great as a glaze for chicken. I grilled … Read moreHoney Chipotle Chicken
I love to grill. It is as simple as that. I love whole meals that can be made outdoors. I have discovered that stone fruit works great on the grill. This is the type of fruit with a hard pit in the center. Peaches, nectarines, etc. The other day I came across this article where they grilled nectarines with a balsamic and honey glaze. This sounded amazing. I must say that if you have never combined honey and balsamic vinegar, you have never lived. It is delicious. A must try.
Memorial Day is the ultimate grilling day! Nothing goes with hot dogs like Mustard. The other day I tackled homemade Ketchup, and today I am tackling the other half. Homemade Mustard.

It has been really nice down here in Richmond. So I cleaned the grill out last week and it is officially grilling season. I wanted to make something new but was’t quite sure. I also did not want to have to go to the store. So using what I had in the kitchen, I created this orange and honey chicken. With a little fidgeting, it turned into a great grilling recipe. It added a nice asian zing to my outdoor grilling experience.
The other week Dana asked if I could make the food a tad bit healthier. Hard to make healthy things when your go to ingredient is Bacon, but I said I would try. Our favorite food is pizza, so I figured I would take that for a healthy little spin. The first thing is to … Read moreHoney Whole Wheat Pizza Dough
I recently went to the closing of a local bookstore and picked up a copy of Jim Tarantino’s Marinades, Rubs, Brines, Cures & Glazes. It is a great book, but near the end in the Asian section he had a great recipe for Honey and Sake Glazed Shrimp. This sounded amazing to me. So I went to the store and picked up some sweet sake and wildflower honey. I figured, the best ingredients could only make this better. After making this recipe, I determined that this was one of the best shrimp dishes that I have ever made.
