Brisket – BBQ’s Kissing Cousin

Brisket – it’s become the holy grail of BBQ and the smoking world over the past few years. It’s one of those meats that either you are spot-on or way-off when it comes to perfection in cooking. Having grown up in South Georgia where BBQ is really only pork I did not even taste smoked brisket until I was in Continue Reading...

A Solar Eclipse and Baby Back Ribs

The event of the decade was the solar eclipse that happened last week on Monday, August 21. The Angry Man Test Kitchen on beautiful Lake Hartwell was located in the path of total darkness – we were to get 1 minute and 55 seconds of 100% of the sun blocked by the moon, a Total Eclipse! We’ve looked forward to Continue Reading...

A Mac-Cheese Challenge

No recipes – No measurements – No rules Yesterday was about really relaxed cooking. The Pleasant Lady and I have guests coming in for a few days at Lighthouse Lane and we have enjoyed taking some time to neaten up and finish some projects around the house.

Bacon Wrapped Chicken Thighs

  This past weekend we were having friends over for a very casual dinner.   With a greater focus on catching up with long-time friends than on cooking, I wanted something really simple to cook yet yummy. The Pleasant Lady and I decided on bacon wrapped chicken thighs – easy, fun, & super flavor.   A couple of years back we Continue Reading...

I love being a demonstration cook at the Georgia Mountain Eggfest up in Hiawassee. It’s a beautiful location and John Continue Reading...

Chicken Wings for the the Super Bowl

The National Chicken Council estimated that over 1.3 Billion chicken wings would be consumed on Super Bowl Sunday. I decided it was important that I do my part to assure that number was accurate! Once I had my wings I decided that I’d do a “cooking with friends” kind of approach for these fine flappers. The friends weren’t actually present Continue Reading...

Baby Back Ribs – Again & Again!

A “go-to” cook for most serious Q addicts is the rib. It really doesn’t matter if your favorite is baby back, spares or St Louis cut – if you like ribs then they are something you prepare again and again and again…….   So it is with me – I love my ribs, my family loves my ribs, as do our Continue Reading...

Prime Rib for New Year’s Day

We have a tradition with my brothers and their families that we gather at the Angry Man BBQ Test Kitchen on beautiful Lake Hartwell for a few days around New Year’s Eve.  It’s a wonderful time for relaxation & some great food.  Honestly, we really pride ourselves on how much nothing we do! We Martin’s are always fond of a Continue Reading...

Rotisserie Turkey On The BGE

When I was a child (just a few years ago) our Thanksgiving Turkeys were smoked.  Please understand that in 1965 a smoked turkey was quite the novelty – folks just didn’t have the array of smokers they have today!   My father ran a welding shop and one of the products that he produced to sell was a grill made from Continue Reading...
