Coleslaw

Every great meal cooked in the outdoors needs some wonderful side dishes to round out the occasion.  I just happen to love coleslaw.  I think I could eat it every week and I love trying to make it a little better every time.  It is so easy to make a fabulous slaw to complete your […]

Biscuits and Chocolate Gravy

My friend Troy grew up in Tennessee. One day we were talking about cooking, and with a big smile on his face he remembered how his mother would make biscuits and chocolate gravy for breakfast. I had never heard of such a thing. I have had lots of different things on my biscuits but never […]

Cajun Beef with Cheese Grits

Whenever I have to sit in a lobby somewhere I always look through magazines for fun new recipes.  This one caught my eye, and even though my brother Vince from North Carolina says we don’t have enough humidity in Utah to cook grits, I thought I would give it a try.  I made a few modifications and […]

The Dutch Oven Dome

This is one of those “how to cook” and not a “what to cook” post.  My sweet wife recently presented me with a new cooking gadget that I had not seen before.  It’s called the Dutch Oven Dome from Camp Chef and you use it in connection with your camp stove.  I used it for the […]

Italian Mac and Cheese

I think mac and cheese is one of our all-time favorite comfort foods. It is rich, warm, gooey and packed with flavor. We put a little twist on this one with tortellini and Italian herbs. It is simple to put together and only takes a few minutes to cook. Give it a try, you will […]

Dry Brine Turkey

I have used a classic liquid brine for years, plunging the old bird in a bucket of salty ice water over night.  The turkey was always moist and enjoyed by all.  When my daughter suggested a dry brine I was a bit stumped.  I have to admit, leaving a bird uncovered in the fridge out […]

Pork Shoulder

Lately I have made a couple of posts about my new and ultra amazing Orion Cooker. I have done ribs, chickens and a brisket. This weekend I went BIG and cooked an 8 lb. pork shoulder. The results – WOW! My family went absolutely nuts over this flavorful and tender mountain of meat! I don’t know […]

Baklava

Many years ago my friend Bryant entered a community Dutch Oven competition. When he lifted the lid off his pot I said “That looks like Baklava”.  It was Baklava and it was wonderful. I couldn’t believe it came from a Dutch oven.  There is nothing like flaky pastry, butter, nuts and sugar! Baklava is one […]

Sausage & Kale Soup

Fall is approaching and there is nothing better on a cool fall day than a great bowl of soup! I really think this could be one of my favorites so far. The sausage adds a little heat and you can’t miss with kale, it’s a power food!. A little cream and you are in for […]
