Sicilian Inspired Citrus Chicken

Got a chance to barbecue some food today.  So here I have my version of Sicilian Inspired Citrus Chicken.  Very simple but really delicious too.   I am no expert so the instructions provided below are simply for those who wish to give it a go.  I also made a video which you can find by clicking here.  The video was just for fun and provides no instructions.  Continue reading Sicilian Inspired Citrus Chicken

Smoked Pork Ribs and Turkey Breast.

Yesterday was my first smoke in a while.  I’m still quite new to this so every cook is an adventure and I seriously enjoy every moment of it.  This time I decided to try smoking a whole turkey breast and some pork ribs.  I also cooked some cheesy garlic bread and jacket potatoes as sides.  I’m always slightly nervous that I might ruin the meat when I am smoking due to my inexperience but this time I was thrilled with the outcome.   Continue reading Smoked Pork Ribs and Turkey Breast.

Sumac Chicken Skewers by Dreaming Of The Good Life

It has been a couple of weeks since I cooked these beauties but they are certainly worth a mention.  It’s not my creation so I will not take any credit.  This recipe was taken from the Dreaming Of The Good Life blog.  If you like tasty food I would definitely suggest that you go have a look at all of the recipes.

If you like a kebab I seriously suggest you make this your go to recipe for a last minute meal on the BBQ.  It took me no time at all and it was packed full of flavour.  Just be careful not to overcook it or you’ll regret it.

Here are some more pictures from that cook.

What charcoal do you use when you barbecue?  Whatever you can find in the supermarket?  Maybe you’re more bbq savvy and use brands like Big K instead.  Have you ever thought about looking for a local producer of charcoal? No?  I think you should give it a go and here’s why. Continue reading The Benefits of Good Charcoal: Sweet Green Chilli Pork Shoulders

Reverse Sear Steak

Have you ever heard of reverse searing?  No?  Then this is the best thing you’ll learn today.  Yes?  You probably already know everything I’m about to say but by all means, read it anyway.

If like me you love steak, you probably believed you could cook a pretty incredible steak already.  You’re probably right but this method of cooking your steak will definitely take your steak to the next level.  To cook this steak I adopted two new techniques picked up from the incredible community over in the CountryWoodSmoke Facebook group.  Dry brining and reverse sear.  If you are at all interested in BBQ and good food I seriously suggest you go and join that group.  Let’s start with preparing the steak.

The Reigniting of my Passion for Barbecue and Smoking.

I haven’t posted anything to my blog for a very long time.  My domain had expired and my drive to write anything had disappeared.  I have loved barbecue food for a long time but my ignorance meant that I didn’t make the most of what I had.  Although I have a large Weber Mastertouch at my disposal – I mistakenly believed that they could only be used for grilling.  I think most of the UK public incorrectly hold a similar view.  What I really wanted to do was smoke some meat but I couldn’t afford to buy a dedicated smoker.  After watching videos of Frankin BBQ on Youtube I was sure that an offset smoker was the way to go.  I even tried to build my own filing cabinet smoker but it just didn’t work (despite the popularity of the post) and I gave up.  The dream of smoking the all mighty brisket at home was all but guaranteed never to happen.   Continue reading The Reigniting of my Passion for Barbecue and Smoking.
