Last night I grilled bacon wrapped all beef hotdogs.
One long strip of baacon will just wrap a dog. The
bacon was held in place wit a tooth pick. The directions
said to soak them in water but that never works. They
were excellent. Of course my fire was to hot and burned
alder and hickory for smoke.

Saturday night I grilled/smoke cooked some leg quarters on the Weber. I used hickory chunks for smoke and then finished off with memphis sauce at the table. There was one left over and will have it for dinner tonight. :weber:

Oh man, John, those leg quarters are absolutely BEAUTIFUL!

BBQ competition-worthy!

Great looking chicken, I do like leg 1/4's. Love the color and looks like crisp skin, the best part. Nice cook. CF:weber:

It's not crispy but is certainly well done. It has a wonderful smoke flavour and the meat has a smoked readness, was over 160 degrees F so know it was done.

My family does not like the crisp chicken skin much to my delight.


Wait, Leni ... do you mean that you get to have all their chicken skin, or do you mean that you cook chicken and don't care if the skin is crispy?

Smoked chicken skin is not crispy, unless you cook it directly over high heat at the end of the cook. Even then, crisping up smoked chicken skin and making it presentable is something competition bbq cooks agonize over.

This evenng I grilled boneless beef club ribs and just now put them in the foil to steam a bit. I used Rick's Real Pit BBQ Rub, sauced with Memphis sauce, and used hickory and fresh plum for smoke.

These spent about an hour in foil and were tender and flavorful. With this cut of meat one takes a chance on tenderness.

That last photo is the "money shot". They look kind of like short ribs - mmmMMMM!

They are supposed to be meat cut from the beef chuck ribs and have been reasonably tender. The "club" part comes from what we used to call chuck steaks back in the 60's and early 70's.

Here's the money shot: rib, KFC slaw, and Alexia baked fries.

Last night was fillet mignon with baked potato and endive salad on the side. The steaks were done over the coals with mesquite for smoke, had an unusual red crust from the smoke, and were quite good.

Last night I grilled coho salmon using the honey mustard glaze and it was excellent.

All the veg was from the CSA.

Rib steaks are my favorite steak!

Good to see you back in the grilling saddle again, John!

I'd like a thicker Delmonico cut but hard to find here. The one time we got the bison Delmonico's from Stewarts Meats were the best ever.

Tonight was a Stewart's Meat rib eye for me and Safeway fillet mignon for the mrs. She requested no smoke and it was all good.

Some anus on Facebook bbqing group is calling me out about my steaks last night - says my fillet mignon is a NY Strip. He cut meat for 4 years and knows the difference. I shouldn't argue with idiots.

Tonight it was a caesar salad and grilled chicken breast to put on the salad - no parmesan or croutons makes for a skimpy salad. I never got around to taking picture of it, though.

I marinated the chicken breasts with the leftover Nicosie dressing from the other day and it was an excellent choice.

Last night I grilled steaks before the ash fall headed our way. We finally ate on the deck and was hoping to tonight but doubt that's going to happen. The mashed cauliflower was pretty good. She squeezed the water out of and added some spices, I'm not sure what. It was topped with lemon juice and ghee.

I did these lamb chops Sunday evening - made a chimichurri using chocolate mint (instead of basil) from my herb garden. It was a hit.

Here are last night's tenderloin "ribs" - crazy store packaging. I grilled these with no rub, no sauce, and using cherry and oak for smoke. They were moist and quite good.

Tonight it was fair burgers - fried the onions in ghee in the Wagner french sauté skillet. The burgers were done over the coals with cherry and oak for smoke. I love the way the fire cleans up the skillet bottoms.

Sunday evening started a fire in the grill and by the time I got the meat on it was dark. The rib steaks were good except this one had a heavy facia running through it. I wished I still had a dog for what I chewed and threw'd.

Last night I grilled the last of my rib steak stash. There is a bit left to go with breakfast for dinner tonight. I'll make morels and scrambled eggs, as well.
