She Who Must Be Obeyed and I are always busy this time of year getting the garden going and doing spring chores. However, that does not mean we can’t eat well. The missus makes up several salads that will do us for several meals and I do quick grilled meals. Continue reading Winner, Winner, Quick Chicken Dinner
We had a piece of spring salmon. She Who Must Be Obeyed didn’t want it smoked but likes a touch of smoke flavour. So I decided to grill it with smoke. Continue reading Grilled Old Bay Salmon
It is finally spring. It is still cool and there still large areas of snow in the yard. However, we have been able to do some outside work so there was less time to cook. Continue reading Quick Barbecue Pork Dinner
We still have 8 inches of snow on the ground and it got down to -5 C (23 F) at night. However, it is sunny and got up to 6 C (43 F). So, it must be time to get out on the porch and make burgers. Continue reading End Of Winter Burgers
I had meetings in town. I was going to a Toastmaster Meeting in the evening. We needed a quick meal.
We took some loin chops, sprinkled on some Cabela’s Open Season Pecan Honey Seasonings and grilled them. Continue reading Barbecued Pork Chops, A Quick Meal
Sometimes you just need a really good steak. We normally buy the lower grades of beef you find in the supermarket coolers. Last night, we cooked up a prime top sirloin. Prime is a higher grade of beef and it really does make a difference in the beef. Now, don’t get me wrong, we’ve enjoy a good grade A or AA steak but the Prime is better. So, a good steak dinner was in the works. Continue reading Sometimes You Just Need A Good Steak
It was minus 10 so it must be barbecue weather. She Who Must Be Obeyed wanted Onion Bacon Baked Potatoes. I did as she bade.
These are quite easy to make. Continue reading Onion Bacon Baked Potatoes On The Grill
I like Montreal Steak spice. Unfortunately, it comes with a drawback. It has a lot of salt. She Who Must Be Obeyed notes that is bad for me (I hate it when she is right). Also, I think a lot of salt on grilled meat makes it a bit drier. I have no proof of that except my experience. Continue reading Club House La Grille No Salt Added Steak Spice, Makes a Good Burger

I like Old Bay Spice and I like blackened fish. This product seemed like a natural. I started with a piece of cod. I melted some butter in a cast iron pan over high heat. As soon as it melted, I put the cod in the butter and turned it. I put it on a plate and gave both sides a generous dusting of the Old Bay With Blackened Spices Continue reading Old Bay With Blackened Seasoning, OK Seasoning, Not So OK For Blackened Spice
In my previous post, I smoked a sirloin tip roast and finished it on the Weber Barbecue. I’d bought the roast as it was on sale. They also had those designer little new potatoes in a small bag on sale. I normally never buy them because they are expensive. Also, if there are small new potatoes here in February, they have been trucked in from parts far away from here. Continue reading Crispy New Potatoes, In February?
