This is Dave DeWitt’s recipe for a traditional Mexican sausage that’s often served with huevos rancheros for breakfast. Unlike other sausages, it is not usually stuffed into casings but served crumbled or formed into patties. (There are two varieties of chorizo: this Mexican version that is made with fresh pork, and Spanish chorizo, made with smoked pork.) This recipe requires advance preparation.
I don’t so much eat All Spice Cafe’s Caribbean Sauce as mainline it like pepper heroin. It’s really tasty to me. Cayenne pepper, nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon are the major players in it but you’ll also pick up a bit of turbinado sugar and black pepper when it hits your taste buds.
Pumpkin barbecue sauce. Hit your tailgater buddies or the costumed drunks at your next Halloween party with that idea and see what they think.
This recipe is a classic in German BBQ forums (I believe credit may go to Thorsten in Wesel). It goes like this: Brushed with olive oil, thinly sliced zucchini strips are softened on the grill.
The technique of soaking a food in a liquid to flavor–or in the case of meats, to tenderize the cut–was probably brought to the Caribbean by the Spanish. A marinade is easier to use than a paste, and when grilling your jerk meats, the marinade can also be used as a basting sauce. “In Jamaica,” notes food writer Robb Walsh, “like Texas barbecue, jerk is served on butcher paper and eaten with your hands.” Serve this version of jerk with a salad and grilled plantains.
Almost as close as you can get to authentic Chinese food in North America! This recipe combines marinated pork shoulder, ginger, garlic, hot chiles, fermented bean sauce, asparagus and lemon grass for a somewhat spicy but extremely flavorful entrée.
A few years back, some of our favorite food writers collaborated on a barbecued Thanksgiving on our mother site, the Fiery Foods & Barbecue Super Site. Drawing inspiration from that idea, me and mine cooked up our own take on that awesome theme. Here’s the first part of that big adventure: Dr. BBQ’s pulled pork stuffing and a pulled pork gravy.
