Caramelized Bacon
Posted by Angus on 01/07/2012 (4338 reads)

caramelized bacon  That's heard me! I said CARAMELIZED BACON! It's delicious and easy to make too! Here's what you need:

1 pound of your favorite bacon (the thicker the better)
1 cup brown sugar

Preheat your oven to 350. I like to pour the brown sugar into a 9x13 pan. Place the bacon in the pan a few slices at a time. Make sure to coat both sides evenly. Shake off extra sugar and place bacon on a lined baking sheet (foil or parchment paper). Sprinkle what sugar is left onto the bacon. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until crispy. Keep a close eye on your bacon! it will burn FAST! Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Transfer the bacony goodness to a wire rack to finish cooling. The longer it sits, the crispier it gets. If you wan to soften it up a bit, just put it back it the oven for a minute or two. Enjoy!

You can spice it up too! Just sprinkle with a little cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes before you baking.

Angus' Sure Fire Pulled Pork
Posted by Angus on 05/19/2010 (2642 reads)

pulled pork  Got a family BBQ coming up? Maybe you're having a Memorial Day blow out or just like to cook you up some pig. This recipe is a simple and sure fire way to make some super tasty pulled pork. I made this last month for a party we were having and it was a big hit!

Here's what you're going to need:


6 QTS. Water
1 LB. Kosher Salt
1 LB. Light Brown Sugar
1 CAN Apple Juice Concentrate
5 LB. Ice
5 GAL Bucket or Cooler

Add water, salt, brown sugar, and concentrate to pot. Heat until salt and sugar are completely dissolved. Remove from heat and add ice. Once brine is cool, add pork. I was able to get 3 in a 5 gallon bucket with no problem. You want to make sure they stay completely covered, so you may need to weigh them down with a plate or glass bowl. Cover with plastic and store overnight in a cool place.


6-8 LB. Pork Butt (I made 3 and fed 25 people with plenty left over for me)
Spice Rub (use your favorite recipe or store bought-I use Famous Dave's Rib Rub)
Apple Juice

Preheat oven to 225-250 degrees

 Bacon Explosion We've become a little bacon-jaded over the years, it's true. A person can only handle so much smoked bacon and flavored bacon and bacon flavoring and things wrapped in bacon until her capacity to absorb anymore bacon-knowledge is just about maxed out. But BBQ Addicts has pulled the rug from under our feet with something they like to call, quote, BACON EXPLOSION!!!

Sven's World Famous Sausage Gravy (Don't Question Me)
Posted by Sven on 01/02/2009 (5202 reads)

 It's bad for you. Just don't think about it.

1 lb. mild pork sausage (you might remember seeing this in a fancy little tube)
roughly 1/3 cup of flour (this isn't brain surgery... so chill)
1 cup of milk (doesn't matter what kind, because you'll be adding water)
2 tbsp chopped onions (use minced if you like... we're easy... but rehydrate them first)
dash of salt
black pepper to taste

Brown the sausage in a skillet of some sort. Use a big one. You have a lot of stuff to add. Use a potato masher (the crappy kind that looks like a squiggly wire) to break up the sausage. DO NOT DRAIN the grease unless there is more than a few tablespoons, in which case you will need to leave a few tablespoons in the sausage. Nowadays, sausage is usually pretty lean. It's very unlikely that you'll need to drain the skillet.

Spread the sausage evenly in the skillet and evenly cover with the flour. Reduce the heat to a simmer. Mix the flour and sausage together slowly so that the sausage is covered and there are no lumps. Warm the milk (yes, you can microwave it) and add to the pan while stirring. Blend until a nice paste is formed. Add about a cup of water and the onions. Stir until a thick sauce is formed (think Cream of Wheat).

Transfer the mixture into a kettle or large sauce pan and slowly add warm water until you reach your desired gravy consistency. Add salt and pepper. Find your biscuits.

Roastin' Piggie
Posted by dirtykalb on 08/25/2008 (2411 reads)

Let's face it folks, the other white meat is NOT Larry Bird. It's pork! But alas, good pork is kinda pinkish when it's cooked.
I give you The Proper Luau Inspired pig roasting technique of DOOM!

Roasted pig is always the main course at a Hawaiian luau. Pig roasts are also popular at many American cook outs, picnics, and public events as well. In order to prepare the pig the same way the natives do, you'll need to use an underground Imu pit.
