A Little Brisket For Practice

  We’ve been doing some updating and renovating at the Angry Man Test Kitchen at beautiful Lake Hartwell. Recently I bought a small brisket flat to cook while I was trying to change out some ceiling fans. Luck for you this story is about the brisket and not fans! There may have been an angry man on top of the Continue Reading...

Ribeye Like A Caveman

OK, sorry it’s been a while since I’ve posted – but I’m back. Recently we had friends over to eat at the Angry Man BBQ Test Kitchen and I wanted something special for them. I picked up some of those 1lb Ribeyes from the meat case at Costco. You know the ones – always so pretty in the package with Continue Reading...

Pizza On The BGE – UPDATE

  I try not to bore you to the point of anger with repetitious postings! However, we’ve been working a bit on pizza technique and an updated pizza post is really overdue.   Here’s a quick look at how we’ve made a few changes to the set-up we’ve been using on the BGE to cook our pizzas.

Skillet Roasted Lemon Chicken On The BGE

Perhaps it’s a part of being birthed and growing up in deep South Georgia – I do love cooking in heavy, cast iron pans.  While many think only of cast iron frying pans on the stove-top for yumalicious fried chicken, they are amazingly versatile tools. Truly, they are champions in the oven!   I can’t imagine trying to make cornbread without Continue Reading...

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. Traditional Saturday night steaks were moving to another evening so I needed another Continue Reading...

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...

Tacos al Pastor – Test #1

Well, I’m behind on posting – that really hacks me!   Wish I could claim that I’ve been too busy cooking to take time to write but honestly it’s the day job…..but that ‘s what keeps the pup supplied with kibbles! I love being a demonstration cook at the Georgia Mountain Eggfest up in Hiawassee. It’s a beautiful location and John Continue Reading...
