Chicken Tinga is a delicious and popular Mexican dish comprised of shredded chicken in a tomato and chipotle sauce. This week Chef Tom shares his recipe for the Pheasant Tinga Quesataco, featuring pheasant meat braised in Tinga sauce, stuffed into tortillas with cheese and finished on the griddle in the Napoleon Prestige Gas Grill.
Green bean casserole is a family favorite for us here at All Things Barbecue and Chef Tom brings a little life back to this boring old dish by breaking it down into three simple components and cooking it all up on our Napoleon Grill PRO665RSIB.
Chef Tom takes one of our favorite cooking techniques and adds a twist by swapping a foil wrapped brick for a Himalayan Salt Plate. He then places a charcoal basket in our Napoleon P500RSIB-1 and grills bone-in chicken halves indirect with a preheated salt plate on top.
We create an amazing stuffing for thick cut pork chops and cook it on a Himalayan Salt Plate on our Napoleon Grill. This grill is crazy versatile and allows us to cook anything we need right at the grill.
We’re less than a week away from Fat Tuesday, so why not whip up a Cajun favorite in celebration of Mardi Gras?! Certainly, there are plenty of culinary traditions to choose from, but when a sandwich is an option, you can bet I’m picking the sandwich. The Po’ Boy is a classic with so many variations that it’s hard to choose just one. That’s how we ended up with the Fried Oyster AND Hot Link Po’ Boy! And the beauty is, by utilizing the versatility of the Napoleon Prestige, you can do it all on the grill. And we did.
We use chile peppers year round. Anaheims, Poblanos and Jalapeños are staples in the test kitchen here at All Things BBQ. But this is a special time of year. Hatch chiles and Pueblos offer wonderful flavor and varying levels of heat, and they’re currently flowing out of the Southwest. Their harvest season doesn’t last all year, due to their specific geographic location, so it’s a good idea to process and preserve the chiles in some way so that you can enjoy them for months to come.
Friends don’t let friends fry wings. Spread the word, wings belong on the grill. The texture is fantastic, and the flavor is in a whole other league. This concept is simple, really, but doing it right will make all the difference. The breakdown goes like this: brine, rub, grill, sauce. Brining adds flavor and will help you retain moisture.
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.
