The weather on this relaxing Sunday can only be described as glorious. Yesterday was cruddy-cold-rainy.....but today......sunny & almost 80 degrees. Unreal. Figured I'd have some fun in the backyard with the grill. Things were smelling great out there. Thanks to this challenge, things were smelling good inside, too, as I was moved outa my comfort zone of using store-bought sauces. The results were to my tribe's liking, too. They asked for the sauce again on other cooks....wings, ribs, chops and others. I will oblige their requests. I liked the sauce, too. The keys to this sauce, imho, are the freshly ground & chopped ingredients. This was an on-the-fly recipe that I will tweak and continue to use. Texted it to some buddies who were either grilling or soon to be. Sauce-making music was enjoyed ! Very grateful to have these cuts in the freezer thanks to Mom & Dad's thoughtfulness at Christmas. Excellent gift that was appreciated by everyone today !!!! I also mastered the art of untying that first pesky knot that allows a ridiculously easy bag opening. Set the Big Joe up with the Divide & Conquer system for some two zone cooking for the stuffed potatoes & steaks. Molly took up a spot downwind of the grill and seemed to really enjoy the relaxing afternoon. Gave them a good dusting with some great KJ flavors. Krunk it on up when the potatoes were close to done. Went with the thicker cuts first. Seared the thinner filets next and then moved them all over to the cool side to rest and finish reaching the internal temps I was shooting for. If ribs, wings and chops are better with sauce......why not steaks ? Got a bowl of the sauce grillside and slathered it on the steaks when they were about 10 degrees from being ready. Roasted corn & asparagus with a small amount of the KJ good stuff. The verdict is in: The sauce was killer. I'm glad the challenge gave me the nudge to homebrew my own. The verdict is also in......we are all stuffed and chillaxing. Molly has be pinned down as I type this.
Greetings everyone My name is Jordan Faust, I am from Valley Nebraska which is just west of Omaha. I recently purchased a King Griller by Char Griller (new Akorn). My family and I have been into smoking and BBQ for a long time, have even built our own smoker at one point. However, recently I could not pass up the opportunity to get myself a Kamado style grill to do some over night low and slow cooks. I did a 15 hour pork butt last weekend to christen the Kamado, and it was fantastic, looking forward to trying different items in the future. -Jordan
