this is a post for you to list your favorite recipes. they can be with wild game if you so desire, or just something you enjoy cooking and how you do it. cooking is something i have enjoyed doing for many years, as i havve spent more of my adult years single, rather than married.

my favorite item to cook is chili! next to that, i enjoy smoking meat on my homemade BBQ pit. every Thangsgiving i usually smoke at least 2-3 turkeys for the family.

that's good! that's where i keep my super secret chili recipe at! even the wife doesn't know my recipe. i can send her to the store with my list, but the preparation is what makes the difference.

I do the same.

I also bake a lot of bread and have to tweak it based on weather and type of yeast used.
i enjoy slow and low for smoking and hot and fast for grilling. my BBQ pit is an indirect heat type and uses the smoke to cook and i usually keep it around 250-300 degrees when cooking. when i do briskets and turkeys on my smoker, i usually cook from about 10-14 hours cooking time. fruitwoods will usually leave a lighter smoke flavoring than most hardwoods.

i learned how to make biscuits from scratch from my grandmother and they are really so simple to make and way much better than the store bought ones in the can. the secret is to use lard! makes them much better.

Green Chili in a darn hurry:

I bottle green salsa medium or hot (pay for the greener stuff)
1 can diced green chili's
3 baking potatoes diced and cooked in microwave
1-2lbs cubed or ground pork salted & cooked in iron skillet on BBQ grill for taste
1 tsp curry powder
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 onion diced
1 can Garbanzo beans drained
1 can white hominy drained
Mucho garlic to taste
32 ounces chicken broth
Whatever amount of cilantro you like

Mix together, bring to a boil, salt to taste, add more water if you want, let it stew for a while if you want.

i too haave done this. the vinegar helps tenderize the meat and the seasonings give a great flavor to the meat. it works good on chicken to grille for fajitas.

I used this for marinating meat on the dehydrator, salt dries meat out.with some liquid smoke.

My wife doesn't either. I had to make normal fries for her.

i prefer my sweet potatoes in a pie! just like my granny used to make for Thanksgiving.
I do too. I always wanted to try to make the fries at home though.

I now know why they always come battered. They don't firm up otherwise and I ended up with an oily mess.

Still pretty good though.

yesterday i went into town and went to this very small mom and pop grocery store, that has one of those old time butchers shop in the back, where they will cut meat to order, then wrap it up in the white butcher's paper. well i picked up three large t-bone steaks, about 1 1/2" thick. brought them home, seasoned them with just a little salt and pepper and grilled them on the homemade grille outside. my father came over and ate dinner with us and we did a little shooting afterwards. it was about 65 degrees outside and the sun was shining, it was a really great day.

I was going to do that here in the near future.

I make philly cheese steak I used shaved rib-eye for. I find it easiest to have them cut 2-3 inches then I take it home and shred it up myself.
