Hey folks, the time has come to hang up my hat.  Lil’Iron and I have spent the better part of two years putting this site together.  It will still exist but in a different form.

I always wanted to share my favorite recipes and make it possible for anybody to get a professional result using their backyard smoker. 

The fear of being redundant has come. 

I can only show so many ways to do chickens, ribs and pork shoulders.  The videos on this site give you all the basics and a few tips.  I do hope you will use them if you need to and pass them on to friends and family.

I have had a great time and met many good people.  I will still answer all my emails and maybe from time to time put up something new I found.

Thank you all for your input and your friendship. 

God Bless you,

This weekend I decided to do some things I had never tried.  I’m hoping this will give you folks the confidence to try anything on the grill.

Here is the basic recipe I use for Pizza dough

4 cups King Authur or Hudson Creme High Gluten flour. (any HG will do)

3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp salt
7 grams or 4 oz bread yeast
1 /14 water at 115 degrees
1 Tbsp sugar

Mix yeast , sugar into water and let proof for 5 minutes

Put flour, Olive Oil and salt in bowl. I like to add dried basil, garlic, tyme, and a little basil oil

After the yeast proofs I start my kitchen aid on speed 2 and start putting in the yeast water.

I let it go until I have a nice dough that does not tear when I stretch it. I cover and put it in the fridge to slow rise for 24 hours.

OOOhhh Baby
