Like most BBQ guys, people are always giving me grilling tools that I never use. I have a box in my garage that is full of unused grill toys. I admit I am a bit of snob when it comes to gadgets, but if it doesn’t make cooking easier or improve the flavor of my food, … More Egg-ccessories: The Cast Iron Plate Setter
Well, here I am with my contribution to the Cubano Sandwich Post. As you well know, I’m not as eloquent and prolific as Cheryl, so this post will be relatively short and sweet. More like terse and bitter, but that’s just how I roll. My responsibility for this culinary endeavor was the pulled pork. I … More Smoking Cubanos
Recently I’ve had a craving for meat loaf. I don’t know why, it’s never been one of my go-to comfort foods, but I wasn’t just going to throw a pound of ground beef in a loaf pan and douse it with ketchup and call it good. No, if I was going to make meat loaf, it … More Don’t Let Your Meat Loaf
Hope you like the catchy title, but we’re talking about pork butts here, so get your mind out of the gutter. Anyway, I was cooking up some pork butts for a little party we had last weekend. Just for fun I decided to check my blog for any old pork butt recipes and realized I … More Smoking Hot Butts
While the rest of America was cooking up chicken wings and nachos, I was cooking up beefylicous fajitas. Wings are nice, but beef trumps chicken every time. These fajitas were extra special, because the Mrs. made homemade flour tortillas. Fajitas I used a choice grade flap steak for my fajitas; skirt and flank steaks also … More Fiesta de Fajitas!!!
For several months I have been eyeing packages of lamb breast at my local grocer. Needing something spectacular for a Sunday dinner I decided it was time to pull the trigger. We take our Sunday dinners pretty seriously, so it had to be something exceptional and I think it was. Marinade & Mop 2 cups … More Silence of the Lamb Ribs
Okay, it’s official! I’m back to cooking. You can probably guess from the title that I’ve made my own pastrami as well as ripped off another Seinfeld episode. Needless to say, I’ve been watching a lot of Seinfeld reruns lately. After a month on the injured reserve list I wanted my comeback cook to be spectacular. What … More Pastrami, The Most Sensual of the Salt Cured Meats!
I got some bad news, I don’t think the Mrs. will be joining us this week. See, I make her work 2 part-time jobs, clean the house, do my laundry, cook at least 3 meals a week then when she’s done with all that she’s free to do whatever she wants. She spends most of that … More Smoking Pot Roast
After months of intermittent posts and a short hiatus, we’re back baby! If you notice a drastic improvement in my writing skills this week, it’s because Mrs. AlbuKirky is going to be a regular contributor to the weekly blog. Every week we team up in the kitchen to cook our world renown Sunday Dinners, so it only … More A Greek Odyssey
If you didn’t already know, today was National Bratwurst Day! A whole day dedicated to the German sausage that has become an American favorite. I don’t know why they picked August 16th. I think a Sunday in October in the heart of football season would be a much better choice, but I’m not on the food holiday … More Brats in Beer
