Pork Loin filled with Bacon and Stuffing

This week I had intended to make a nice pork roast for dinner so I had a pork loin thawed and ready to go for the roast but decided to take it in a different direction. It had been a while since I had the smoker going, about four days, so I decided to smoke…

Ritz Fried Chicken

This week I decided to do some fried chicken thighs in the air fryer. I typically like to do a pickle juice brine when I do fried chicken in the air fryer so it is like a combo fried pickle and fried chicken. This time the fried chicken was kind of a last minute thought…

Pan Fried Stuffing Patties

The other night I was making smoked pork chops and our typical sides of green beans and boxed stuffing. Lately we have been in a bit of a rut as far as our side dishes are concerned. Now I love the flavor combination of the stuffing, beans and pork, but I wanted to try something…

Skirt Steak with Teriyaki Mushrooms

I know I did a skirt steak not long ago but as I said in that post it is a great cut of meat. This is my go to recipe for a marinade with skirt steak.  This marinade has gone through several changes over the years but this is the version I have stuck with…

Purple Cow Milkshake and Hot Dogs

Way back when, when I was a small child my grandparents, Gram and Baba, lived in a town outside of West Chester PA which is about a half hour outside of Philly. I would spend several weeks during the summer with my grandparents and they would take my cousin and I to the King of…

Cashew Fried Chicken

As I said before I have been pulled into the air fryer craze.  If you don’t have an air fryer you should seriously think about getting one.  It takes all of 2 minutes to preheat, can do everything your toaster oven and oil fryer can do plus more. Now this recipe is one I have…

Smoked Tri-Tip

This weekend I decided to give a California style BBQ a shot.  I had a nice Tri-tip which is a cut of beef from the bottom sirloin.  It is a very lean cut with not a lot of marbling that grills like steak, slices like brisket. Has the beefy flavor of sirloin, and is somewhat…

Smothered Chicken

Weather has been weird here in Pennsylvania recently days fluctuate from mid 80’s on day to mid 60’s the next. So the other night on one of the cooler nights we were in the mood for some good old southern comfort food. Smothered Chicken really hit the spot that night. This is one of those dishes…

Slow Smoked Chuck Roast

This week we had a lot of running  around to do and we decided to stop for a quick bite at the local branch of a chain BBQ joint.  I had eaten there before and it wasn’t bad for chicken or pulled pork sandwiches but I decided to give their brisket a shot.  Well here…

Vanilla Rum French Toast

The best thing about this French Toast is it is nice and slightly crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside.
