    What are you cooking for Easter...

    I have 3 pork butts (a friend is doing another 3) for a Church Easter party on Saturday. But for Easter it is ham, asparagus, baked mac n cheese, deviled eggs and a handful of other sides.

            synodog I made a last minute change and wedded Meathead’s cook schedule with my wife’s grandmother’s peanut butter Coca-Cola ham. I think I want to tweak it some, but it was pretty good for the first attempt. How did yours turn out?

            LA Pork Butt I received plenty of favorable comments about my ham and it went before the other non-smoked ham so I think that means it went well. Even with the modification I enjoyed it too.

          Picking up two pork butts tonight. Plan on cooking them Saturday and just reheating on Sunday. I would do them Saturday night-Sunday morning but I want some sleep and we have church in the morning. Going to have deviled eggs, some sort of potatoes for the sides and a bunny cake for the kids. And whatever anyone else brings.

            Nothing, absolutely nothing. We are eating at my mother in law's or sister in law's, and that typically means a bunch of lukewarm casserole dishes sat out all over the kitchen, and cold pre-sliced turkey or ham from the Honey Baked ham store. None of my in-laws can cook worth a rip. Thankfully, we have all the summer get togethers here since I have an in-ground pool and outdoor entertaining space, with grills coming out my butt (well, all over the back yard anyway).

              It's going to be pulled pork and brisket. The kids are bringing all kinds of sides. Just as importantly there will be none of those "jello salads". When I reached adulthood I swore I would never be subjected to that stuff again. The little old ladies in my family mixed cottage cheese or lord knows what else in jello. There would be green ones and red ones with one thing in common, they tasted terrible.

            If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

            slow n sear
            The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

            The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

            the good one grill
            The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

            Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

            The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
