I’ve made these numerous times and I’ve posted the recipes as well so I’m only posting a few pics of this cook. See Links:
Enchiladas / Sauce:
Started out making the sauce.
Roasting the veggies and cooking the chicken.
Once everything was done I mixed the chicken with some slivered onion and some cheese. I rolled / wrapped up a dozen enchiladas. I covered them with more sauce and some cheese and baked them on the kamado for 25 minutes.
I plated some up with some fresh made Mexican rice, Frijoles’, some radish and a Modelo Negra.
Spent an uneventful time at home watching it rain outside most of the weekend. The one thing we could do was prepare for the Super Bowl. What goes good while watching a football game? Wings & Thangs of course. I’ve made these Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings and Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins before and they turned out great so I made them again and decided to share the pics.

All I got this time were these plated shots
They were extremely delicious just like the last time.
Thanks for looking.
Made these gorgeous pork belly tacos tonight and would love to share how I did them. I was going for some Mexican and Asian flavors, and couldn't have been happier with the result. The only issue at all was a light spot on the pork due to liquid pooling there during the cook because the belly was a bit big for my standard Joe and I had to scrunch it a little.
1. I brined it for about 14 hours in a mix of pineapple juice, teriyaki, and soy sauce after scoring the fat sight relatively deeply
2. Dried the belly and rubbed it with Killer Hogs BBQ Rub on all sides
3. Smoked on Kamado Joe at 240 with some cherry wood to add a light fruity smoke favor (no wrapping because I wanted some meaty bite in the taco)
4. When I had internals around 185, I glazed the belly and cooked for another 20ish minutes
5. Broiled the belly inside for 2 minutes to tighten up the glaze and crisp the fat even more
6. Rested the meat for about 40 minutes (should have gone longer but people were too hungry :D )
1. Mix together raw honey, soy sauce, salt, worcestershire sauce, peach preservers (wanted pineapple to go with the brine but couldn't find it), apple cider vinegar, kosher salt, black pepper, hot bone sucking bbq sauce, and some secret super hot scotch bonnet hot sauce I bought in Anguilla. All of this is unmeasured and I mixed to taste.
2. Simmer on the stove until the mixture reduces a bit and thickens up, allow to cool off the heat
1. Home made guacamole (avocado, lots of lime, onion, kosher salt, pepper, cilantro)
2. Home made Chipotle Crema (sour cream, heavy cream, lime juice, canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, adobo sauce, kosher salt)
3. Grilled pineapple on the same grates I cooked the pork on
4. Cojita Cheese
6. Home made pickled onions (red onion, apple cider vinegar, kosher salt, sugar, water)
Please enjoy the pictures, and as usual, ask any questions!
It’s been a while since I last cooked anything let alone posted a cook. Sorry for that but life is just very busy and hectic for us these days. It’s also been a while since I’ve had Tri Tip and it recently went on sale, so I picked up this 3.79 lb. behemoth.
I took it out of the package and trimmed it up a little.
I them minced some fresh Rosemary from my garden.
I rubbed it down with some Worcestershire sauce, then some fresh ground salt, some fresh ground black pepper, some steak seasoning and finally the minced Rosemary.
I wrapped this up in plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for 6 hours. I then made up some Tzatziki with I also let rest in the fridge for 6 hours.
Around 4:00 I started prepping the Redhead for the cook. I started by spreading a layer of red oak chunks in the bottom of the Vortex ring.
Around 5:00 I lit up a chimney of lump and poured it over the oak chunks. I place the Tri Tip off to the side and let it slowly come up to an I.T. of 113 degrees.
I then took it off and loosely tented it with foil. I then opened up the vents and let the Vortex go nuclear! (Here a pic without the flash so you can see it)
I then placed the Tri Tip on the CI grate for 3 minutes per side.
I then brought this in and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
While that was happening I sliced up some veggies.
I then sliced the Tri Tip in half along the seam where the grain chances direction.
I then thinly sliced each half across the grain.
I had purchased some nice Pita bread so I made a Tri Tip Pita sandwich.
