Grilled Pork Tenderloin on Big Green Egg

Grilled Pork Tenderloin I’ve done several recipes for pork loin… but this recipe is for a true pork tenderloin. The true tenderloin runs alongside the backbone – and it’s a lot smaller (and a lot more tender) than the pork loin. It’s often called the pork fillet too… that’s how good it is! There are a lot of different ways …

This week I have a rib recipe that you absolutely must try. It’s my take on Korean BBQ Spare Ribs and it’s all about Flavor! These ribs are way different than your traditional BBQ ribs. In place of a dry rub I use a marinade to season the meat, and at the very end I hit them with a Spicy-Sweet …

Pork Carnitas Recipe with Mexican Style Pulled Pork

I love Pork Carnitas… so I decided to do my version using pulled pork. The traditional way of cooking carnitas is to braise pork shoulder in lard or oil until it’s falling apart, then crisp the chunks of pork and make tacos.

Pineapple Glazed Whole Smoked Ham

Pineapple Glazed Whole Smoked Ham For this recipe I use a Whole Smoked Ham (fully cooked). Don’t confuse it with a fresh or green ham which is one that hasn’t been cured or cooked, also don’t confuse it with a country ham. That’s something totally different. (we fry it and eat with biscuits in the south!). The whole ham is …

Smoked Pork Chops

Smoked Pork Chops

For this week’s newsletter I had my local butcher cut me some 1” thick pork loin chops. Thick chops like these are excellent on the smoker and it doesn’t take as long as you might think. I keep the recipe fairly simple but we get a ton of flavor into the meat by using a brine. Also the layered seasonings …
