It doesn’t get much hotter than the EGG cookin’ in July! Make sure to keep yourself hydrated with a bit of whatever you’re using for the Beer Can Chicken. Ice Cream Sandwiches are also a great way to stay cool. Looking for some great ideas for a summer cook out? Try out a Pimento Cheeseburger or Dr. BBQ’s Spare Rib Surprise. Just don’t be surprised if your neighbors stop by for a quick bite when they smell what you’re cooking!

Savory Apple Tart: Filling 3 Granny Smith Apples, Peeled, Cored and Sliced. 1 TBSP Dizzy Pig Pineapple Head. 1 ½ oz Very Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Grated. Crust: 2 ½ Cups (10 oz) All Purpose Flour. ½ tsp Salt. 1 tsp Sugar. 2 Sticks Very Cold Butter, Cubed. 1 ½ oz Very Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Grated. 1 tsp Fresh Thyme. 1 tsp Fresh Rosemary. 2 TBSP vodka. 2 - 4 TBSP Ice Cold Water. Combine apple slices and Dizzy Pig Pineapple Head in a colander and set aside for 1-2 hours. Whisk together flour, salt and sugar. Cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Toss in 1 ½ oz Cheddar, thyme & rosemary. Add vodka and 2 TBSP water, gently mixing with a fork until dough comes together (do not over work. Add more water if needed). Refrigerate dough for 1 - 2 hours. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place dough between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Roll dough into a rough circle, ¼ inch thick. Remove top sheet of parchment. Place drained apples in center of dough and top with 1 ½ oz cheddar. Fold edges of tart toward the center and transfer tart and bottom sheet of parchment to a cookie sheet. Bake 50 minutes until golden. imageimage image image

    Good call on the vodka. Great sneaky technique to hydrate the dough.

    This is TFJ's cook. Someone just asked me for the recipe so I posted it. We had it with pork chops and it was a great compliment to them. I like it because its an excuse to take the vodka out of the bar..........like I need that.

  • That looks fantastic.  This is definitely on the "must try" list.  Also, I've been looking for some good uses for Pineapple Head.

    That is some right fancy apple pie! 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

  • Might just try that recipe if it tastes half as good as it looks it would be worth while.
