Jenga Hoisin Ribs
Even though I’m a competition pitmaster and like to cook meats in my grills and smokers, a cast iron pan on the stove-top also does a fabulous job cooking ribs. So when it’s cold snowy or rainy outside, you can still enjoy ribs indoors. My recipe is super simple with only three dry ingredients for the seasoning and three wet ingredients for the sauce.

Game Day Bacon Wrapped Cheesy Chicken Jalapeno Footballs
As a pitmaster hosting a Superbowl party, I had to find a way to take it up a notch from my usual smoked wings so I decided to come up with some bacon wrapped footballs. How do you make an appetizer football from chicken? Well, the drumstick comes to mind because when you debone the drum meat, you can shape it into an oval football. Add a spicy Jalapeno stuffing, cheese, and bacon wrap the sucker, you’ve got a signature appetizer to wow your game day friends.

Grilled Thai-style Wagyu Flat Iron Steak w Shallot Rice
I love spicy food from around the world from New Mexico hatch chili salsa to fiery Schezuan firepot fondues to melt-your-earwax Thai curries. When my sponsors Snake River Farms sent me some Wagyu Flat Iron Steaks to shoot a KTLA5 morning show segment, I had some extra piece of these $95 beauties which I ran out of time to cook on camera as I had several other meats on the grill. In this Thai inspired recipe, I marinate the flat iron in a Thai curry paste.
