Maple Bacon Pecan Pie Recipe

For this Maple Bacon Pecan Pie recipe, I took a few of my favourite things and put them together to make this amazing masterpiece. I have to actually give credit to my son for this one: we were going out to a picnic for our Jiu Jitsu club and my son said ‘We can’t go to the party without a pie Daddy, we have to make a pie’. Of course, it was 7pm of the night before the party. I went to the cupboard, opened it up and it was like a golden angelic aura came flowing out into the kitchen. I actually wish I’d made three of these – we ran out in two minutes flat at the picnic!  Continue reading Maple Bacon Pecan Pie Recipe

Asado Ribs Recipe w/ Chimichurri Rojo

Argentina, the second largest country in South America, is a place of amazing beauty, containing the Andes mountains, stunning glacial lakes and of course, Patagonia. However, it is also renowned for its amazing beef which is raised in the Pampas, the traditional grazing grounds of Argentina. As such, beef, and therefore BBQ, is a huge part of Argentinian culture. Many argue that no one does beef like the Argentinians… Give this Argentinian Asado Ribs Recipe a crack and you’ll agree! Continue reading Asado Ribs Recipe w/ Chimichurri Rojo

Beef Spice Rub Recipe

Myron Mixon vs Me: The Great Rib-Off

Myron Mixon is without doubt the biggest name in BBQ. He is a three time World BBQ Champion and the chief host of TV’s BBQ Pitmasters. It is therefore no surprise that I, like many countless thousands of others bought his book ‘Smokin’ with Myron Mixon‘.

One of my favourite things to cook is beef short ribs and so naturally I went straight to his recipe – I had to see how it was different to my own. Now I’m pretty proud of my shorties: I managed to pull a 4th place at last year’s Burleigh BBQ Competition, the 2nd biggest BBQ competition in the southern hemisphere. However, it was when I started to read  Myron Mixon’s recipe that things got really interesting.
