It’s starting to cool down a bit outside. Fall is the perfect smoking weather. The Complete Electric Smoker Cookbook is great for when you’d rather be out throwing a frisbee or bonding with your lawn chair in the sunshine than playing in the kitchen. It’s an easy, yummy book that will get you out in that yard. It’s called an electric smoker cookbook, but the recipes work perfectly in my kamado-style grill with a heat deflector plate, too. Any tweaks I made to the recipes are noted in the review below. Read More
Texas is pretty awesome. We get maybe 5 days of snow a year. Just enough to be ridiculous. When it does, kids get sent out in redneck sleds (laundry baskets). I saw an excited dad hand his beer off to his friend, and then he took his kayak down a snowy hill. And we have smoked brisket, queso, kolache, and Mediterranean geckos. It’s a good place. About that queso…. Lisa Fain, author of Homesick Texan and Homesick Texan Family Table, just put out a book of nothing but queso, and it’s fantastic!
Here’s the recipe for her Spinach Queso Blanco, so that you can taste the book. A big thanks to Lisa Fain for letting me share it with you!
