Cooking Method: Smoked


Beer Can Chicken

Beer can chicken is one of the most quintessential grilling recipes! I’m not sure whether it’s how funny the chicken looks sitting upright on the grill or the fact that it really is a great way to grill a whole chicken, but it’s certainly a popular grill recipe.


How to Prepare and Cook St. Louis Style Ribs

Did you know there are some people out there that don't like to eat BBQ ribs? I know! Weird, right??? I ran into a few of these weirdo's at a cookout one time and I launched into full-on interrogation mode becau...


Sirloin Tip Roast

To properly cook a roast beef, we need around 325 to 350 degrees for about 20 - 30 minutes per pound.  Most of the other smokers I have owned required a lot of effort to keep that (relatively, for a smoker) high temperature going for an extended period of time.  Not with this

Smoked Turkey Recipe

Pulled pork sandwiches

Pulled Pork Recipe

When I think of barbecue, I think of pulled pork sandwiches.  The fact that the meat has been cooked long enough to allow it to literally be pulled apart by hand is a signal of the time and attention someone put into cooking that for me.  One day, I too will have a legitimate smoker built out of a...

Are you one of those people that tremble at the thought of cooking ribs?  Maybe you haven't tried it yet because you think you need a BBQ pit mounted on a trailer?  Or maybe you've been told you need an entire afternoon to cook your ribs.  Well, fear not young griller, if you have a grill and an ...
