JoeTisserie Pork Butt I

joetisserie pork butt IYesterday, I tried a new barbecue joint, and tried the pulled pork sandwich from their menu. It wasn’t bad, it was flavorful, but there was no evidence of any smoke.

I got the hankering to do make up my own big plate of my own homemade pulled pork, — with a hint of smoky goodness. The weather forecast for the next few days was rain free. Continue reading

JoeTisserie Chicken I

JoeTisserie chicken on the kamado joe classicTropical Storm Hermine is tracking away from coastal Virginia and the backyard has been cleaned up and is back in order, –mostly.

Yesterday, Midge wanted to cook up a mess of hotdogs on the grill to not heat up the house. I had wanted to do a JoeTisserie chicken, but that would need to wait.

Lodge L2SP3 Cast-Iron 2-Quart Serving Pot

I am a big fan of cooking outdoors on my Kamado Joe grill. Lighting up that pile of lump charcoal and then watching the flames dance about just melts away the stress. Toss on a few pieces of wood for smoke flavoring, well it just brings out that inner caveman in all of us.

I have researched a lot of cast iron products for use on the grill. Of everything I have researched, Lodge has stood out above the rest. This product review is on the Lodge L2SP3 Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron Serving Pot, 2-Quart, –or in my view, the perfect Kamado Joe sized 2-quart dutch oven. Continue reading

Grilled Bratwurst On The Kamado Joe



Today, for a bit of lunchtime table fare, I fired up the Kamado Joe. I had a few bratwurst in the fridge that were begging for some outdoor grilling action.

I own three outdoor grills (for now).
