I have been working on a Piri Piri spice and I thought I had it. I bought a chicken and this is the test run.
We’ve had a record snowfall here at Passing Wind Estates and you would have to be crazy to go outside and smoke. Colour me crazy! I fired up the Louisiana Grills smoker and made General Tso Chicken Wings! I am even crazier because I could have made these in the oven! Continue reading General Tso Chicken Wings
I have made a video on how to make Back (Canandian) Bacon that I have made in previous posts!
She Who Must Be Obeyed picked up a nice small wild Sockeye Salmon fillet. We were busy (it was suggested I was lazy but that is crazy). I was instructed she wanted it done on the smoker. Normally, that would involve brining and a long cold smoke. I decided to just give it a rub and smoke it at a low temperature. Continue reading Easy Smoked Salmon
Smoking chicken thighs present a problem if you are cooking them at low heat. If you cook them over 350 F, the skin crisps up. Below that, the skin tends to get rubbery. What if your smoker won’t heat up to 350 F or you are cooking pulled pork at 250 F and want to do some chicken at the same time? Can you still make chicken with a crispy skin. Yes!

There are times when being able to cook really pays off. She Who Must Be Obeyed wanted a snack and made these Creole Butter Salt & Pepper Wings. It never hurts to be nice to the boss! Continue reading Creole Butter Salt and Pepper Wings
I like hot links so I wanted to make some. This presented a problem. Most hot links are hot (surprise!). She Who Must Be Obeyed does not like very spicy food. I decided what the heck, I was going to make some whether she liked them or not. Of course, I asked her permission first. Continue reading PWE Hot Links
I have had some enquiries about andouille from my prior post. Andouille is a spicy smoked Louisiana sausage. It is commonly used in Cajun and Creole dishes like Jambalaya and Gumbo. However, it is also tasty eaten by itself or on a charcuterie tray. Continue reading PWE Andouille
I got a huge brisket when I visited some friends in Montana. It weighed 16 pounds! I planned on making corned beef from it but the point part of a brisket is a little fatty for the way I like corned beef. So, I decided to make burnt ends out of the point and corned beef out of the flat. Continue reading Carne Asada Burnt End Tacos
