Kansas City Style Pork Chops

Once you start researching the different kinds of barbecue sauces there are, and where they come from and the traditional recipes they’re made from, it’s like information overload. Actually, it’s part information overload and part opinion overload. I’ve tried to get to the root of […]

Day 5 of 100 Days of Barbecue – Top Sirloin Gyros

Day 5 of 100 Days of Barbecue – Top Sirloin Gyros

I know better, I really do. Gyros are made with lamb, not beef. I know people make them with beef, but usually I would never be a part of such a travesty. However, I had already started preparing the sirloin, which was actually sliced very […]

Rosemary Chicken

Rosemary Chicken

Usually, when I roast chicken legs or thighs, I do it in my big roasting pan with root veggies, some oil and poultry seasoning and a generous heap of rosemary. Lately, I’ve been growing rosemary on my kitchen counter and it smells so good I […]

Rib Eye with Herbed Butter

Rib Eye with Herbed Butter

I didn’t fire up the grill on day 3 until almost 9pm because time flies at my bestie’s house. 😉 We didn’t let that get in the way of the 100 Days of Barbecue though! I had already been marinating the steaks all day, so […]

Salisbury Steak

Salisbury Steak

It’s been almost a year since we moved to Utah. Leaving Los Angeles was one of the hardest moves we’ve ever made, (it’s right up there with leaving Toronto), but Salt Lake City has had some unexpected benefits. Like real, actual weather! The endless summer […]

Spicy Chuck and Meat Claw Review

Just heads up, I talk about meat claws from Cave Tools in this post, and yes I was sent the product to review. My review however, is unbiased and honest. My family likes to try out new recipes, but they are so married to their […]

Banana Bread, Homemade Barbecue Sauce & Barbecue Updates

I thought it would be so fun to celebrate California and summer and the heat and all the lovely feelings that go along with backyard barbecues by grilling for 100 days in a row. I started calling it #100daysofbarbecue on Instagram and made grand plans. […]
