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.

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!

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.

Looking Back At 2016

The New Year always brings about a thought for looking back over the past year. 2016 was a fun year for The Angry Man. Allow me to take a stroll down the ole memory lane if you will….. First, we launched this site in 2016. My cooking took a few twists during the year and I’ve not posted as I Continue Reading...

MBN Judge – The Big Pig Jig

Way back in “the year 2000” a Q friend told me that a great way to improve my cooking would be to become a judge. Well, a few weeks later I was on a Delta Jet headed for the main-office for all things Q: Memphis, TN.   I attended a Memphis In May judges training class and passed the final exam Continue Reading...
