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 […]

Orion Cooker II – Smoked Brisket

A while back I told you about the Orion Cooker. I thought it sounded amazing, but I didn’t know just how amazing it really was. After receiving my Orion Cooker I have cooked two 6-pound chickens in 90 minutes. I did three racks of pork ribs in 90 minutes and then last weekend I cooked […]

Leftover Potato Soup

Sometimes after you make a Dutch oven full of flavorful potatoes you seem to have a few leftovers. My family loves potato soup and this one is the easiest thing you will ever make, and the flavor is incredible. It already has the bacon, cheese and spices so the soup is already half made.  It […]

Dutch Oven Potatoes

There are few things that go better as a side dish than potatoes out of a Dutch oven. I have made many a potato before and this recipe from Camp Chef took me back to the roots of my early cooking days. These potatoes are so easy and so very delicious. Leftovers can be used […]

Indian Chicken with Yellow Rice

Last winter my wife and I had the chance to visit New York City for a few days. One thing I really like about New York is all the great food you can purchase from the street vendors. One that I really enjoy is from the Halal trucks with delicious chicken and flavorful rice. This […]

Dutch Oven Carrot Cake

Dutch oven desserts can be so easy and also have amazing flavor! This is one of those dishes. With only a few, simple ingredients everyone will be coming back for more. Just think of a carrot cake with the cream cheese frosting on the inside.  A real change to the traditional dump cake. I think you will […]

Triple Berry Upside Down Cake

I am always trying to find new ways to use my smoker. Normally I don’t think of desserts coming out of a smoker but this one was wonderful! The sweet berries with a wonderful moist cake were a total delight. The surprise was the marshmallows, which added a great texture to the cake. It really […]

Dutch Oven “Pop Tarts”

I think everyone has probably eaten a pop tart – those wonderful, thin pastries with gooey sweet stuff in the middle. Well, this is a take-off that I think you will love! The cake mix gives that thin pastry a little more body and makes the pop tart “grow up” a little. They are great […]
