Fish Tacos-Taste way better than they sound

Not Actual Photo..Sorry!!
Take some Fresh Tilapia and Blacken it in a cast iron skillet with Cajun Seasoning. Crumble and put it in a flour tortilla. Cover with sliced red cabbage, shredded cheese, quartered fresh avocado, half tomato slice, and Salsa ranch dressing. Very Good and Very Healthy

Playing with my Butts

Today I decided to smoke a little Boston Butt to take over to the In-laws tomorrow while we do some fishing. I took  an Injector and shot a little Apple Cider and Vinegar mix in the butt. Then I peppered the outside with some coarse ground pepper and put a little rub on the outside. I smoked the 3.5 lb Butt at 225 for 3.5 hours and foiled it up for another 1.5 hrs. After I took it off the smoker I let it rest in the foil for 30 minutes and then I pulled it by hand. I removed the outer bark and fat and put it to the side while I pulled the lean meat. I then took the bark and a small amount of the fat a put it in Momma's food processor and chopped it up into small pieces. I then returned it to the pan with the pulled pork and mixed it all up. Lastly I put a couple of tablespoons of Cider Vinegar and a little Worstershire sauce in the pork to keep it moist till we eat it tommorrow.  It turned out real nice.

Don't eat Gas Fumes!!


Would you put lighter fluid on your burger? Of course not. So why put it on your Charcoal. Of course it fades as the coals ash over but, it is still there somewhere. Here is a solution. Get a Charcoal Chimney. They sell them at Home Depot and Lowes for under $10. I recommend the Weber Stainless Steel One.  Fill the Chimney up with Charcoal. Crumple Newspaper Underneath. Place it on a Cinder Block, Brick, or Piece of Concrete. Light the newspaper. Wait 10 minutes and the coals are ready to dump in the grill. No need for Match Lite or Lighter Fluid and the newspaper is cheap and easy to find.

The Reveo Marivac

I use the Reveo Marivac for everything I cook on the grill. Veggies, Chicken, Steaks, and Fish. It doesn't matter. It is simple. You load the canister with Seasoning, Sauce or any other liquid, and meat. The hose sucks the air out stretching meat fibers. Flip the white knob on top and lay the canister on the rollers. As the meat rolls for 20 minutes the meat, sauce, and seasonings gentle come together. Anything can be marinated in 20 minutes and takes away the 3-4 hr or overnight process.  It is well worth the investment. I have had mine for 3 years and I have had free parts replaced twice at no charge.

Brining Chicken

If you are cooking poultry and not Brining you are missing out. Brining is a marinading process where poultry is soked in a Brine mixture of Salt, Sugar, and Water overnight. It makes the chicken moist and juicy and removes alot of the blood. After Brining you can smoke or grill. I will show in this post the process of Quick Brining where I use a Marinator called the Reveo Marivac

Yard Bird Today

Gonna smoke some YARD BIRD this afternoon. YARD BIRD is what I call Chicken. Smoked Chicken is excellent in Chicken Salad, Soups, Casseroles, and Straight off the Bone. Look forward to a few Instructional Videos as I make this delicacy.

The Kings Stock

I won't lie. I very rarely make sauces and I very rarely mix my own seasonings. I have several reasons. 1. I don't have time. 2. They are everywhere 3.The kids don't like spicy stuff. Most of the time I use "The Kings Stock". The Kings Stock is a line of premium seasonings, rubs, and dust offered by MANCAVE. The Kings Stock and other Premium Grilling products and meats are available from MANCAVE WORLDWIDE  Guess What? Yours Truly is an Advisor. So  don't buy anything without letting me help you.
