Chef Tom breaks down the few simple steps to taking your standard pre-cooked ham and turning it into a holiday meal masterpiece. A little smoke and a sweet mustard glaze take this ham to amazing heights.
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.
Chef Tom shows you just how simple a truly fantastic Thanksgiving turkey can be. By spatchcocking, brining and roasting the bird at 325°Fi in our Yoder Smokers YS640 we end up with a wonderful roasted smokey flavor that compliments any other dishes you want to serve alongside your turkey.
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.
Here at All Things BBQ, we’re constantly interacting with folks who are passionate about grilling, smoking and cooking in general, and folks who are hungry for knowledge and looking to improve their craft. If you’re reading this, there is a good chance that you are one of these folks. You’re awesome. One of the questions we get a lot is, “What is the best way to cook a whole bird?” Whether it’s chicken or turkey our answer is always the same. Spatchcock. If you’re tired of drying out the breasts while waiting for the thighs and legs to finish cooking, it’s time to employ the spatchcock technique.
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!
