Are you a total meat lover? Hardcore Carnivore is an absolutely outstanding celebration of all things meat. Jess Pryles has a great BBQ reputation, but this book is not isolated to, nor emphasizes, BBQ. She approaches each dish individually, and cooks it by whichever method she prefers for that recipe – frying, roasting, baking, grilling, or smoking. The bulk of the book is meat dishes, just as you’d expect, and those are amazing, but don’t underestimate the supporting side dishes she’s got at the end. We loved those, too. This is a delicious book! I’m having trouble putting it down. Continue reading “Patty Melt Pretzel Buns recipe and cookbook review: Hardcore Carnivore by Jess Pryles”

I was playing in a book, Ovenless Desserts, and came across a Roasted Marshmallow Milkshake. That sounded fabulous. I made it and tasted it and was immediately transported to a campfire out in the woods. I’m a barbecue fanatic. I was out back at 7 this morning getting the fire going to smoke dinner. I adore injections of smokiness wherever the opportunity strikes. Smoky marshmallows. What if you added a little more smokiness with a shot of mezcal? Oh gosh, is that ever good! I’d like to introduce you to my favorite boozy milkshake, the Roasted Marshmallow and Mezcal Milkshake. Thank you to Mamie Fennimore for the inspiration and thank you to Cider Mill Press for letting me share it with you! If you’re making this for small people, omit the mezcal and make it as the author intended! 😀 I’ll tell you more about that book after the recipe.

I love smoking fatties. They look really cool, even though they couldn’t be easier. They’re quick to assemble. Everyone loves them. And they smoke in just a few hours. So they’re the perfect easy breezy party food. Get ready to be a Superbowl hero! Here are a few of my fatties to try. Each one serves 8 petite humans or 4 really hungry adults. They definitely only serve 4 teenagers.

If you love them, come find me again! :D
