I came up with this recipe one spring while deciding what to do with a neighbor’s
abundance of asparagus that he most graciously shared with us. Having never grilled
this vegetable before, I was somewhat skeptical, why, I don’t know. This dish has
become one of our favorites. The addition of the seeds and oil at the end is optional,
and serves well without.
This is a baked bean recipe that I have made dozens of times. I first saw it on the
BBQ Forum. Rick Salmon is a regular poster on The Forum and from what I can see from
here, a pretty darn good cook. The problem with making these beans, folks like them
so much; they ask for them all the time.
This recipe comes from George’s Mother, Marlene, better known as Em. She’s a darn
good cook and has made tons of this slaw for various family and social events over
the years. The recipe has been a closely guarded family secret, but I was finally
able to convince her to give it up, providing I wouldn't tell anyone. So I am trusting
you here, you can have the recipe, but if she asks where you got it from, dummy up,
remember, you know nothing! You didn't get it from me.
Nothing says ‘summer in Maryland’ like a juicy ripe tomato. We are blessed in our
State to have some very tasty tomatoes available to us each summer. They are sold
at the many farmers markets and roadside stands that pop up this time of year. If
you are extremely lucky, as am I, maybe some of your neighbors have an abundance
of the treasured vegetable that they are willing to share. This recipe is just a
framework for you, it is not baking, so the quantities and seasonings can be varied,
adjusted, added to, or changed to suit your own taste. My favorite tomatoes to use
here are the heirloom varieties. In my opinion, they have the best taste and the
different colors add a very interesting look to this somewhat traditional summer
This is another recipe from Don Wooten, Off the Hoof BBQ. This one came from an old
cookbook he was going through. Don, like many if us that like to cook enjoys scouring
old books for recipes. Often times, with a few minor adjustments, they can be brought
up to speed which many times results in a tasty, enjoyable, but simple dish. I think
this fits the bill for all three.
Don Wooten came up with this bean recipe by accident one night while cooking at his
local firehouse. He was making beans for a function and spilled a jar of cinnamon
into the mix. They were so good Don made them that way for a couple of years and
then decided they needed more flavor so he added cloves which gives the beans a very
different profile. People are always asking him when he is cooking at the fire house
so they can get the beans. He will tell them they are nothing fancy and if they want
the recipe they are more than welcome to it. Here you go, enjoy!
