Appetizers n’ Sides

BBQ Smoked Beans

“Slap yo Mama, WOW” said the team next to us at the 2011 American Royal after indulging themselves in this BBQ Bean medly. The beans went on to finish in the top 10% and have been in our arsenal ever since. This recipe roots itself from my Great Aunt, who served these to many pleased patrons of her resturant. The recipe can be adapted easily to make the best BBQ beans you will ever have. This is a very simple recipe that will steal the show wherever you take them! Here we go!

Sweet Cornbread – A Crowd Favorite

Hot Grill on Grill Action’s Sweet Cornbread:

The folks that attended our first event at the Bottomless Glass got to try these.  Those that had attended both events did not get to eat them the second time.  For this, I have caught a hat full of crap…  “Where’s those corn bread muffins maannnnn?”  “I can’t believe you didn’t make the muffins this time!”  The only way I know how to apologize for not having the muffins at our last event is to provide the recipe so you can make them yourself.  I know this doesn’t exactly fill your belly, but it’s gonna have to do.  Oh, and by the way, the folks that attended the GOBS dinner at the Bellevue Fire Hall enjoyed them on April 10th.  Should have been there if you weren’t!

Kettle Pizza Review: BUY IT!

I was able to get my hands on something that I’ve been wanting to try for a very long time.  The Kettle Pizza attachment unit for the 22″ Weber Kettle Grill!  As you may know, pizza on the grill is one of my favorite things to cook and I’ve written a few articles about it here on BBQ Revolution.  Our family loves to eat pizza and I really don’t think there is any better way to eat it.

Healthy Coleslaw Recipe….

…..and you’d never know it!

Using a variation of a recipe loaded with calories found by another BBQ competitor, I came up with this version which is knock down, drop dead, awesome!

The whole thing is under 400 calories and makes enough for about 12-15 people as a generously served side……making it about 30 calories a pop and very little fat!

Here ya go!
