Chef Tom cooks up bacon wrapped pork medallions that get to the essence of a great grilled meal. A few ingredients and a minimum of steps yields a meal that your family will thank you for, and you’ll thank us for saving you some precious time
If there is one thing as popular as smoked meats here at All Things Barbecue, it’s peppers. It’s not an accident that we stock the store with all kinds of chile-centric marinades, rubs, sauces, glazes, salsas and more. Our love for all things peppers is why we keep tinkering with jalapeño popper recipes. This time we’ve managed to jam more green chile into this green chile than ever before.
Molasses Roasted Carrots and Fennel adds a touch of sweetness to your roasted root veggies this winter to really round out your holiday (or any other day) meal. This side goes great alongside steak or pork chops AND you can prepare it on your grill!
You may be familiar with the turducken; a chicken stuffed into a duck stuffed into a turkey. It’s become quite popular as a holiday dinner centerpiece in the last several years. Well, it turns out that the idea translates pretty well to the squash world. So, we’re stuffing a zucchini inside a butternut squash inside a spaghetti squash. Unfortunately, spag-but-chini doesn’t have the same ring as turducken, so we present to you the Squash-ducken! This savory vegetarian dish has all of those Thanksgiving flavors you’re familiar with and works great as a side or main dish alternative for your friends and family who aren’t meat eaters.
For a delicious and creative way to serve pizza appetizers, give this recipe a try. For the dough, we’re using frozen dinner rolls, and the cast iron muffin pan gives the crust great texture. You can use your favorite sauce, cheeses and toppings and change it up as much as you like.
If you can't tell from our videos, we love steak, especially when the steak is a Creekstone Farms Master Chef Choice Cowboy Ribeye. In this video Chef Tom reverse sears our ribeye on a Napoleon Grills P500RSIB and infuses it with a little smoke flavor during the first part of the cook.
Porchetta, the Italian rolled roast that can be made with a number of pork cuts, is currently blowing the minds of the employees here at All Things Barbecue. It’s a simple process, really, though it requires some patience. Our take on this Italian classic features a pork loin and pork belly, both of which were brined before being rolled and tied together and reverse seared for maximum flavor and texture.
Sous vide has taken a jump in popularity lately with the introduction of more and more affordable sous vide units on the market. This has brought the cost of home sous vide down and has introduced the technique to those who had never heard of it mere months ago. Chef Tom takes an amazing Creekstone Farms Master Chef Choice Cowboy Ribeye and sous vides it in the VacMaster SV1 at 49°C and cooks it for an hour and a half. After that he quickly sears it off for flavor on our Yoder Smokers YS640 Pellet Cooker setup for direct grilling.
A couple of weeks ago we talked about what a great ingredient puff pastry is to have on hand, and how its uses go beyond breakfast and dessert items. This week we’re back with another great puff pastry recipe, and we’re going savory again. You BBQ enthusiasts are probably familiar with ABTs, the barbecuer’s take on jalapeño poppers. We’re tweaking those ideas a little more for this flaky, creamy, chile-centric appetizer.
When our friends at Cattleman’s Grill asked us to come up with a killer steak sandwich recipe it was a no-brainer. We use the Cattleman’s Grill rubs more than any other when it comes to grilling steaks around here. This recipe is built around the earthy flavors of their Smoky Chipotle Coffee Steak Rub. The coffee flavor works great with the smoky spice of the chipotle, which we’ve amped up with the steak marinade and the aioli on the sandwich.
Our cheese sauce isn’t far from the nacho cheese you occasionally indulge in at the ballpark or movie theater, but it’s made from scratch (so you actually know what’s in it) and it’s slightly sweeter with a little spice, thanks to those delicious bread and butter jalapeños.
Puff pastry is a great food item to have in your freezer at all times. It’s super versatile! It can be used for sweet or savory applications. It’s great for desserts or appetizers and people love this stuff! These ham & cheese puff pinwheels are both visually interesting and super tasty, which makes them great for parties or big dinners.
Forget elbow mac ‘n cheese, Cavatappi pasta is where it’s at. This spiralized noodle is perfect for holding all of that creamy, cheesy sauce that is topped with a layer of crunchy breadcrumbs, all of which is smoked to perfection!
Who’s ready for Fall? Sweater weather, football and changing leaves! And what better food to invite Autumn than soup? Not just soup, but beer, cheese and smokey bratwurst soup! We’re sharing the recipe now (though you won’t want to wait), so that you’re well-prepared for the first weekend of football, just a couple of weeks away.
Though the sous-vide technique was first developed over 40 years ago, it has only recently made its mainstream debut. Chefs in quality restaurants have long used this technique, and now sous-vide machines are becoming much more available to the general public. The idea is simple, really. Food is vacuum sealed in a bag and submerged in circulating water in which the temperature is precisely controlled.
