There was a sale on Sirloin Tip Roasts at the supermarket. It is not exactly the tenderest cut of beef but if slow cooked to no more than medium, is quite tasty. By the way, here is an example of survival. I like my beef cooked to medium rare. She Who Must Be Obeyed likes medium. A smart husband cooks to medium to survive.

Sometimes you just need a smokey, gooey barbecued chicken. This was one of those times. Continue reading Pecan Honey Barbecued Chicken, MMMM Good
The cost of wild salmon is very high these days. So, when the local supermarket had a sale on frozen pink salmon fillets for less than a king’s ransom, I bought some and made smoked salmon. Continue reading Smoked Salmon, Experimenting

I have blogged a lot about how easy it is to cook good food. However, some projects require time and effort. The results are usually worth it and I have fun in the process. Back bacon is
one of those projects. If you aren’t a foodie like me who enjoys the process, you might want to get your back bacon in the supermarket. Continue reading Molasses Back (Canadian) Bacon

It is the weekend before Christmas and She Who Must Be Obeyed wanted glazed back ribs I normally do a maple glaze but I was out of maple syrup. Going into town on the weekend before Christmas is scarier than a mother in law so it was time to improvise. I like an
occasional enhanced soda pop this time of year so I decided to make Rum and Coke Ribs. Continue reading Rum and Coke Ribs, A Christmas Season Experiment
This is a special occasion dinner for She Who Must Be Obeyed and me. It is like smoked salmon but sweet and peppery. I knock most of the peppercorns off before eating. They give a nice flavour to the salmon but that much pepper is hard on a fat old guy’s constitution. The missus leaves them on but she is tougher than me.
This is a recipe that was inspired by several postings on Smoking Meat Forums. It is spareribs cured like bacon and glazed like ham to make Bacon On A Stick. It has the great texture of ribs, the wonderful taste of bacon and the sweet crust of ham. Who could ask for more! Well, actually, everyone asks for more of these. Continue reading Bacon on a Stick
I love smoked cured sausage but it is so high in fat. At least the stuff I make myself is a little lower in salt and fat.
Andouille is made in different ways in countries around the world. My recipe is based on a Cajun style adjusted for my mild Canadian taste buds. It is moderately spicy with a nice onion, garlic finish.
If you would like to see more details on how I made it, you can seem my post on the Smoking Meat Forums. Continue reading Canadian Andouille
