Top 10 Recipes of 2017

Are you ready for 2018?

2017 was a good year for me from a culinary standpoint. Here are the top 10 recipes from the year, but first let me go over some things I learned that I’m so excited about…still.

I discovered smoking.

THAT was huge; I never really knew the joy of smoking until I got my smoker box.
One of best things I’ve smoked so far – Smoked Lemon Pepper Wings.

I discovered sous vide cooking. Words can’t express how much I love this method. If you don’t have a sous vide, get one ASAP.
I made these Reverse Sear Carnitas.

I learned that you can pancake batter the shit out of just about anything.

Including Pancake Battered Chicken.

I learned that bacon and tequila pair quite nicely. I made this Bacon Jalapeno Tequila Jam Burger, and it got me a Golden Ticket to World Food Championships.

I learned EXACTLY how to make copycat Krystal (or White Castle) burgers. I nailed them.

I learned that thinly sliced potatoes make damn good vehicles for other food – such as Sloppy Joe stuff. And other stuff.

Ok, fine, jalapenos.

I learned that shoving a beer can in the middle of ground beef makes for a perfectly stuffed burger.

I also learned that adding an Asian flair to the typical French Dip is absolutely amazing.

I also played around with layering – cheese encased in a meatball encased in a pretzel shell. Sounds complicated, but nah.

Oh, and I made, yet, another burger. Shocker, I know.
