Smoked Pulled Pork

Smoked Pulled Pork

Kansas City Style with a Canadian Twist

Posted on July 18, 2017
Smoked Pulled Pork is the ultimate summer party food. Soaked in sweet and spicy sauce, served on a bun, stuffed into a roasted potato (regular or sweet), and eaten with your closest friends and family, there is no doubt that summer is incomplete without making some smoked pulled pork. This recipe is KansasCity Style, with a bit of a Canadian Twist. I served this to my neighborhood when we had a block party to celebrate summer. It was the perfect porcine potluck provision to share. 

 

If you are making the pork ahead of time or to freeze for later, you can skip adding the sauce to the shredded pork. If packaging for the freezer, instead of serving it all at once, make sure that you freeze it for maximum freshness by following the directions in this blog post. I generally pack 1 lb. at a time; that will feed about four when reheated.

Maple Garlic Chicken

Maple Garlic Chicken

Sweet, Sticky, Garlicky!

Posted on July 10, 2017
Maple Garlic Chicken is delicious. Super garlicky, sweet, and sticky. It goes great with just about anything you can think of to serve with it. A fresh salad with a tart and vinegary dressing pairs well, so do roasted potatoes, all salty and crisp.  This recipe is great for any chicken cut, from drumsticks to thighs, whole legs, and even breasts. Just remember to keep that skin on, because that is where the flavor is at.

Maple Dijon Roasted Carrots

Maple Dijon Roasted Carrots

on the Grill

Posted on November 16, 2016
I’ve made these Maple Dijon Roasted Carrots a few times. It is the dish most often requested when I offer to bring something to family functions. The relatively simple glaze is loaded with Umami flavor. Read more about The Science of Barbecue – Why Grilled Food Tastes Good to learn more about Umami. This is a side dish that adds a bright pop of color to your table. The deep roasted flavor of the carrots pairs perfectly with whatever dish you serve. You can use regular carrots, go fancy with young carrots with the green tops still on, or even get really crazy and use brightly colored heirloom carrots.  However you slice or peel them, this side dish is de-lilsh!

Chocolate Cheesecake

Chocolate Cheesecake

with Maple Pecan Topping

Posted on August 25, 2016

After making Homemade Lasagna, I found myself with a lot of leftover ricotta cheese. What better way to use up the extra ricotta than to make a Chocolate Cheesecake with  Maple Pecan Topping? Instead of my usual Cheesecake Recipe, I added ricotta for a more "Italian Style" cheesecake. Inspired by National Chocolate Pecan Pie Day on August 20th, I also added the crust from my Salted Maple Pecan Bars, as well as the topping. This cheesecake recipe has to be the richest one to date.

Maple Walnut Apple Crisp

Maple Walnut Apple Crisp

Sweet Autumn Dessert

Posted on October 27, 2015
I found honey crisp apples in the grocery, they were beyond gigantic. I mean I have a teacup that holds 2 cups and they were bigger than that. I bought these apples for a different recipe, but wound up with more apple innards then I knew what to do with. So I made Maple Walnut Apple Crisp. Sweet, overloaded with syrup and cinnamon, crunchy walnut bits everywhere. Top that with cream cheese icing, yogurt, or whipped cream and you have a dessert made in Autumn Heaven.

Roasted Sweet Potato

Roasted Sweet Potato

Stuffed With Saucy Pork

Posted on July 15, 2015
I get left to my own devices on most Friday nights. It's my "me time" so I don't really mind. The only problem is that I never know what to make for dinner. Well, this particular Friday wasn't much different. But that was when I noticed some leftover Apple Cider SpareRibs in the fridge. That's how I came up with Roasted Sweet Potato Stuffed With Saucy Pork. I fired up the grill to make a baked sweet potato, then when the potato was nearly done, tossed the meat from those ribs into my grill wok with some Cattle BoyZ Chipotle Maple Bacon BBQ Sauce, and shortly thereafter I had a delicious and pretty healthy meal.

Candied Pork Back Ribs

Candied Pork Back Ribs

Sticky And Rib-Tickling Tasty

Posted on May 28, 2015
We had a real craving for ribs recently and I just had to act on it. So we made these Candied Pork Back Ribs to fill that void. Usually we make Maple Bacon Ribs, but I wanted to go for something a little different this time round, something special for the first ribs of the season. So I seasoned, smoked, melted and basted my way into these amazing ribs.
