Mexican Mac and Cheese on the grill…

This is one of those quick and dirty recipes that can easily be done in the kitchen, using the stove-top and oven, our on the grill using the deep half of a combo cooker, and finally in a Dutch Oven.  The results will be good and tasty regardless of the method used to prepare it. […]

Heidi’s Quick Sloppy Joe Mix on the grill…

Sloppy Joe’s were one of our kid’s favorites while they were growing up – and these days our grandchildren have continued the “tradition”.  Many years ago, Heidi refined it down to its simplest form and could knock out a quick meal they would welcome in about 20 minutes total preparation time using the stove-top and […]

Beef & Pork Machaca on the grill

Machaca in old Mexico was used by “cowboys” down there in similar fashion to jerked beef up North. The major difference being the beef was first cooked, shredded, cooked some more – then dried.  It could be snacked on in the saddle “as is” or later re-hydrated with boiling water to make various dishes for […]

Pulled Pork Tacos

Ah the magic of turning a beautiful Boston Butt into pulled pork. Pulled pork is a form of that “real BBQ” we always hear about, in Mexico it is known as “Carnitas”, but around the old Pondee we just call it “the good stuff”. Normally, the meat is smoked for 10-12 hours, wrapped in foil […]

Jalapeno & Cheese Cornbread on the grill

Yesterday I posted a copy of my Buddy’s recipe on the blog and have found my mouth watering for some good cornbread ever since!  Naturally, I’ll be doing it out-of-doors on the Propane grill, using my square Lodge Logic skillet. I’ll also be “tweaking” his recipe just a bit. 😎 Jalapeno & Cheese Cornbread on […]

Beefy two-bean tamale pie on the grill

I am still looking at further ways to exploit that Lodge “Combo Cooker” on our propane grill.  I like to buy “ready made” pre-cooked Tamales, made with Masa flour, wrapped in corn husks – then just steam and eat them with a good sauce but there is something about the name “Tamale Pie” that just […]

Beef Ranchero Taco Skillet on the grill

I have been scouring through our recipes for those I could adapt for use with the new Lodge “Combo Cooker” on the propane grill. Today the wife mentioned her “Taco Skillet” recipe she got from Campbell’s Kitchen then modified to OUR tastes a few years ago. Our Son-in-law just absolutely *LOVES* this dish! Super simple, […]

Meatballs and sauce on the grill

I think of meatballs as “the other incredible edible”. 🙂 Doing them on a good hot grill is just about as easy as on the stove top. Plain Old Meatballs Ingredients: 1 pound lean ground beef 1 pkg Lipton Onion Soup 1 tsp of garlic powder 1/2 tsp dried oregano 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional) 1/2 […]

Red Chili Rub recipe

I love using rubs, particularly for grilling ribs or on just about anything in the smoker.  This one is particularly good for baby-back ribs – the amounts will suffice for about 3 or 4 racks. Ingredients: 1 Tbsp. ancho chile powder 1 Tbsp. paprika 4 Tbsp. brown sugar 1 tsp. kosher salt 2 tsp. ground […]

Spiral-cut Ham on the grill

Ever had an idea that turned out so well and was so easy you felt like you were “stealing”? There is really no recipe for this – and really not much to it at all. Bottom line it was easy and FUN and the results were very satisfying indeed! At my request, the wife picked […]
