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.
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 49ºC 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.
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.
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 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.
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.
Football season has arrived. Whether you are a rabid fan or just a casual observer, everyone can agree that football season is tailgating season. Here are a few tips to make this tailgating season your best yet, and keep you safe in the process.
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).
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.
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.
