This competition rib recipe can be found in Bill Gillespies book Secrets of Smoking. For those who dont know, Bill has won both the Jack Daniels Invitational and the American Royal, as well as 3 NEBS Rib Team Of The Year awards.

Prep You Sauce And Rub

For the BBQ sauce, use a sauce pan on medium heat to mix all of the ingredients together and simmer for 15 minutes. Cool and store in the fridge.

Lets get right into it! Prepare your smoker for cooking in the 250-275F range, with a few good chunks of apple and/or maple wood (add them right before you put the ribs on).

Next up, apply the rub. Do the back (bone) side of the rack first, then let it sweat through for 10 minutes. Then flip over and season the other side too, letting that side sit at room temperature for another 15 minutes. Add another coating of rub to the meaty side and let them sit for a final 30 minutes.

Smoking Your Ribs

This is where the fun begins. Put the ribs on the smoker. If youve got multiple racks, space them out evenly. If you have, divide them between the bottom and top grate, and switch them after 90 minutes of cooking.

After another 90 minutes (3 hours total) of cooking, its time to wrap. Lay down 4 sheets of heavy duty aluminum foil on your cooking area. On them, spread 2 ounces of honey, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of butter. Lay the ribs meat side down on there, and apply 2 ounces of honey, 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 1/2 cup of BBQ sauce (recipe below). Wrap tightly and place them back on the heat.

Cook for another 1 hour before checking for doneness either by temperature or with the toothpick method.

Final Step

When done, move the ribs to room temperature, open up the foil (but dont unwrap yet!) and let them vent to stop the cooking process.

Collect about half a cup of juices from the foil, mix it with half a cup of BBQ sauce and use that as a glaze.

Enjoy!

Quadzilla Burger Recipe (Japanese Quadruple Grilled Cheeseburger)

Published

Quadzilla Burger Recipe - Quadruple Grilled Cheeseburger

This quadruple grilled cheeseburger (thats right, quadruple) is a beast of legend, its no wonder they call it the Quadzilla! Fire up your grills and prepare your tastebuds, this ones gonna be WILD.

Quadzilla Burger Recipe Quadruple Grilled Cheeseburger!

What is The Quadzilla?

The Quadzilla is obviously named after Godzilla, the giant Japanese dinosaur-like monster that shoots laser out of its mouth a perfect comparison for this four-patty cheeseburger.

But the comparison goes beyond its size. Many of the ingredients are either Japanese or Japanese-inspired. Some might be harder to source locally, but are available on online marketplaces like Amazon. More common substitutes will be listed wherever possible.

Japanese Burger Sauce

  • 1/4 Cup Japanese Mayo/Regular Mayo
  • 3-4 Tbsp Okonomi sauce/Chipotle BBQ sauce

Simply mix the two in a small cup. Adjust how much Okonomi sauce you put in it you want the savory of the mayo to be present, while the sweet and spicy tones of the Okonomi shine through.

Sweet Onion Topping

  • Sweet onion
  • Shichimi Togarashi seasoning

Use a cast iron skillet on a hot grill, or do this on your kitchen top. Chop the sweet onion up, and let it cook in some vegetable oil over medium heat. Once it starts getting translucent/yellow, mix in some of the Togarashi seasoning.

Grilling 4 Patties

  • Burger buns
  • Crisped up bacon
  • 80/20 ground beef (4 ounces per patty)
  • Japanese Worcestershire Sauce

Onto the actual grilling! Fire up your pit, prepping it for direct cooking. If you have a flat top, set that up, because its going to make your life a lot easier with the thin burger patties.

Give the buns a quick, light toast.

And now, the actual patties of the quadruple grilled cheeseburger. You want to make 4 of them, so they are going to be fairly thin. Make four 4-ounce meatballs, and use a patty smasher to get them down to about 1/4th-1/8th of an inch.

Place the chopped up crispy bacon under one of the patties, so the bacon pieces become embedded to the meat.

Once all 4 patties are cooking, give their top sides a light coating of japanese Worcestershire sauce. This is going to act as the salt element, and add a ton of flavor to the patties.

Flip the patties when ready, and add one slice of cheese to all of them except for the one with the bacon. You can add different cheeses (provolone, american cheese, cheddar-jack, etc.)

Assembling the Quadruple Grilled Cheeseburger

Its time to stack these babies! Place all four patties on the bottom bun, with the bacon patty on top. Then throw on some of the onion topping, and finish the whole thing off with some Japanese BBQ sauce.

Enjoy!

Home for the Holidays: Smoked Mushroom Bread Pudding

Published

on

You might know it as stuffing. Or strata. But in my household, this savory union of bread, mushrooms, celery, and fresh sage is known as bread pudding. It meets all the holiday requirements while adding a flavor distinctly its ownyou guessed itfragrant wood smoke.

While most recipes for stuffing start with bread, this one calls for day-old briochea French butter and egg-enriched bread. Youll want a firm, not soft-squishy loaf. Weve found challah makes a good substitute. If you can find neither brioche nor challah at your local bakery, use whatever good bread you can find. (Youll need about a pound.)

There are lots of options for the mushrooms: morels, chanterelles, boletus, shiitakes, black trumpets, hen-of-the-woods, maitake, and king mushroomsnot to mention the more commonplace button mushrooms, cremini, and portobellos.

For unabashed richness, I add cream and eggs. And for complexity, theres optional Cognac or brandy.

You can swap chopped pecans for peeled roasted chestnuts if you wish, the latter taking cues from crooner Bing Crosby: Chestnuts roasting on an open fire Using a sharp knife, cut Xs into the rounded side of each chestnut so they can release steam, then place in a grill basket or disposable aluminum pan. Roast for 15 to 20 minutes over a medium fire (about 400 degrees), shaking the basket or pan every few minutes so the chestnuts dont scorch. Let cool before peeling.
