Grilled Korean Kalbi Lamb Chops
Korean cuisine is very popular in Los Angeles and there are several thriving Korean communities. I love the grilled beef rib dishes popular in Korean cuisine called Galbi or Kalbi. I've made Kalbi before but I thought to myself, won't the same flavors work on lamb ribs? I so happen to love New Zealand lamb ribs sold in Sams Club so I thought I'd try the Kalbi marinade approach on lamb ribs. The results were sensational. Here's my recipe if you want to try this Korea-meets-New-Zealand idea.

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.

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 Purple Cabbage with Yoghurt Dill Sauce
This side dish can hold its own as a main course and it perfectly complements smoked meats especially pulled pork and beef brisket. You can do it with regular cabbage but I find purple cabbage makes for a very attractive contrast of colors with the white yoghurt sauce.
