Been workin on my red beans recipe for a while. Can’t get pickled pork outside New Orleans, so I substitue boiled ham which I fry up with the trinity. This time also couldn’t get a ham hock, but ham shank seemed to work just as good. Next ima start working on a gumbo recipe.
This Fourth of July we made a Beer Can Chicken. I learned this method on the Food Network a few years ago, and it is a fantastic way to cook mouth watering chicken. It is really simple. Just rub chicken with favorite spice rub, plug it up the butt with a 1/2 full beer, and cook on grill with indirect heat for 1 – 1 1/2 hours. Enjoy!
