One of the things I love about cooking on the Yoder Smokers pellet grills is the versitility of foods that they allow me to prepare. I’m not limited to just smoking pork butts, or only grilling steaks. These cookers have the range and consistency to do it all! It’s that temperature consistency that makes even baking a cinch. Whether it’s dump cake out of a box, made from scratch pound cake, or cheesecake bars, I can count on the smoker doing the job as well or better than the oven inside the house.
Certainly, there is more than one way to bake a cake, but this technique is unlike most. Don’t worry, it’s not any more involved than a typical cake, and the hot fudge like sauce that is created in the process is totally worth putting the box cake aside and giving it a shot!
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.
Whether or not you’re looking for a cool weather salad to impress your guests this Fall, you’ve found it. Big bold flavors make this a perfect entrée salad, or you can cut down the portions and serve it on the side.
Chef Tom adapts one of our favorite recipes from “BBQ Brian” Misko’s best selling cookbook, “Grilling with House of Q.” This simple recipe only calls for three ingredients and is perfect to make during the fall or as a great holiday side dish.
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.
It’s far too easy to get in a rut with potatoes. Mashed, then baked, then mashed, maybe scalloped… Let’s throw a new one in the mix. With just a few ingredients that you probably have on hand, you can put together a flavor packed side dish that’s also super appealing visually.
With apple season at it’s best, we continue to find new ways to utilize everyone’s favorite Fall fruit. This one is sure to be a crowd pleaser. It’s visually beautiful! Blow away your friends and family by putting a little finesse into baking on the grill.
If you like spicy and you like fried chicken, then Nashville Hot Chicken should be right up your alley. Despite its popularity in the Music City, there is much left to the imagination when it comes to creating it yourself. There doesn’t seem to be a hot chicken joint in town that’s willing to part with its recipes or signature techniques. Lucky for you guys, we’re not in the habit of keeping secrets. After some research and tweaking, we’ve come up with a recipe and technique adapted to the grill that, at the very least, is likely going to make you sweat.
Our cheese sauce isn’t far from the nacho cheese you occasionally indulge in at the ballpark or movie theatre, 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.
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.
It’s almost not fair to call it a cookie, because you’ve never had a cookie like this. You’ll forget the semantics as soon as you take your first bite. We up the hazelnut and up the chocolate on top of the creamy Nutella base layer to make this skillet cookie Nutella amplified! It’s rich enough that a little goes a long way, so there is plenty to share (or not).
Very simply, the term roulade refers to rolling meat. This simple idea is a fantastic technique that can be translated to a variety of meats. In fact, we’ve visited this idea a few times in the past. The Southwestern Stuffed Pork Loin, Chicken Spedini, and Turkey Roulade are great examples. When it comes to beef roulades, flank steak is usually top dog. We, however, are kind of crazy about tri-tip right now, even if it will require a little extra effort in this application. This recipe will take a whole tri-tip roast, sliced horizontally and meat glued together to give us something similar to the shape of a flank steak.
Your gas grill is probably more versatile than you think. Most of us frequent grillers have pondered and tested the possibilities, but if you’re looking for a place to start, then try these delicious home-made cheesy breadsticks.
