  • Prime Brisket Quesadilla With Cotija Cheese

    We've been eating and enjoying that Prime Brisket I cooked day before yesterday so much that we really needed to eat something else. But it was just so darn good that we had to have more tonight. 

    So I came up with the idea to make a quesadilla with it, along with that Cotija cheese we had left over from the Street Corn cook I did. 

    Well, it turned out to be surprisingly good. 

    Take a look to see how I did it.

  • Prime Brisket With Two Rubs - The Movie

    I've had a touch of cabin fever and a really strong desire to cook a brisket. So yesterday I put on a 12 hour prime brisket using two different flavors: It's My Rub's Power Blend and Garlic & Pepper seasoning from Simply Texas here in Spring. 

    We had some for dinner tonight. 

    It turned out to be my best brisket ever and I just had to share it with everyone. Well not share 'it' but share the photos I took of 'it.' 

    If you stop by this weekend there's some left. Only because we're on diets around here. 

    Take a look.

  • Grilled Mexican Street Corn (Elotes) - The Movie

    Today was one of those days. And I just felt the need to cook something on the Egg. I bought a prime brisket from H.E.B. which I will cook tomorrow, but I needed to smell something coming from the Coop today. So I decided on Grilled Mexican Street Corn aka Elotes. 

    Naturally, we had to go shopping because we had never heard of some of this stuff. And while shopping, I found the brisket... But one item completely eluded us, even when we stopped at a Mexican Market. That item was Chili Powder. Not just regular old chili powder but Guajillo Chili Powder. 

    So where did I find it? At Simply Texas Gorumet Foods in Old Town Spring. He had plenty and gave me some. But he also wanted to let me know they will be buying an Egg and using it in their store to demo their large collection of spices and rubs. 

    But that's not all, he wants to cook at the Space City Eggfest this year. And guess who has to give him a quick prep course in cooking of the Big Green Egg. Yes... The Chickens... And we're really looking forward to it. It'll be easy because he's already a great cook so about all we need to show him is what a 'Back-Flash' is, and maybe how to control the temperature. Other than that, he'll be fine. 

    Anyway, back to my cook today. I made a video of it. So if you have about a minute and a half to spare, you might enjoy it. 

    See you in Salado.

  • Re: How do you use your Blackstone Griddle?

    Besides breakfast and fish and shrimp and burgers and stir-fries and the usual items, I've also cooked Pizza and French Bread on it.  Here are the videos for the Pizza and French Bread cooks:

    I enjoy cooking on it, so I'm pretty sure there will be other ideas to try.

  • Even On A Diet, You Sometimes Need A Pizza

    I know I saw it somewhere in a Diet Rule Book, but the way I see it, unless we're stone-eaters, no rule exists about absolutely abstaining from pizza while on a diet. 

    Diets need to be flexible. 

    So today for lunch we cooked a quick pizza using a Boboli crust that needed eating. It worked but I think I like my tortilla crusts better. Even so hit the spot without too much calorie-splash to ruin my day. 

    Take a look at what only took about 35 minutes total to make. 




    That will hold me until the next craving. I hope it's Bluebell Homemade Vanilla. 

    Life is good at the Chicken Ranch.
