Bacon Wrapped Backstrap

this week I thought I’d kick 2015 off with a great recipe for backstrap… my favorite cut of whitetail deer. The backstrap is cut from the top of the deer located on each side of the spine.

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 “Sirloin Tip” Recipe

I started out searching for a Tri Tip roast, but in my part of the country it can be a challenge to find. What I did come across was piece of beef called a Sirloin Tip Roast. This cut comes off the cow right beside the Tri Tip section (hence: Tri Tip’s Cousin), but it’s actually part of the Bottom …

Sliced Pork Butt Sandwich

Sliced Pork Butt Sandwich Recently I’ve had several questions about cooking a Sliced Pork Butt Sandwich. Now Typically all of the butts I cook are pulled. I prefer juicy, tender pulled pork with bits of crunchy bark mixed in. And you don’t see Sliced Pork Butt Sandwich in Memphis, but in some parts of the country, that’s how it’s served. …
