Posts tagged: brisketDelicious and tender smoked brisket is a hard thing to come by when you don’t have hours to tend to a smoker. Nothing beats the smoke-filled flavor you get in every bite, so tender and comforting you feel like you could just melt away. I am thrilled to bring you my favorite, unbelievably simple and ridiculously tasty, slow cooker brisket. You might not be smoking it over wood chips all day, but you’ll still taste that smoke flavor. There’s nothing like a Guinness stew on a cold day. Unfortunately a traditional Guinness stew can take a bit of time, which I rarely have on weeknights, especially after battling traffic in snow during rush hour. With this recipe in less than 30 minutes, you’ll have a delicious stew that will warm you up inside and out!
Imagine this… You’re sitting around the campfire, drinking a couple beers and joking with your friends. Then someone says, “dinner’s ready” and you all gather around a large cast iron skillet. The aluminum foil gets peeled off and you instantly smell the best campfire dinner smell ever – barbeque.
Now I’m turning that imagined experience into a reality for you with these campfire barbeque nachos! Featuring Pig of the Month meats, all you have to worry about is preparing shredded chicken prior to packing up and heading to your campsite. Then simply assemble all the ingredients, cover with foil and cook directly on the campfire until everything’s warm and the cheese is melted.
You’ll end up loving the three-meat combination on these campfire nachos so much, you’ll be building fire pits in your backyard just for an excuse to eat them on a weeknight! DIG IN!
INSTRUCTIONS: Layer the tortilla chips on the bottom of the cast iron skillet, filling it approximately 1/3 of the way full. Add the pulled pork, brisket and pulled chicken in an even layer on top of the chips.
Top the meats with black beans, sliced jalapeños, and cheese. Cover the cast iron skillet with aluminum foil and place directly on the campfire. Cook until the dish is warmed through and the cheese is melted, approximately 5 to 10 minutes. You can also cook this under the broiler on low for approximately 5 minutes at home!
Remove from heat, peel off the foil and top with the fresh tomato chunks. Serve immediately with either barbeque sauce or salsa and hot sauce.

Stuffed with Pig of the Month's INSANE brisket and all the cheddar cheese, these brisket bombs are the best football food you could ever ask for. It's got the carbs and the protein to load you up and balance out the booze, not to mention a ton of gooey cheese. Really, what is a football game without excessive amounts of cheese anyways?
It's a pretty boring event, that's what. You gotta get that cheese, meat and bread in while you tailgate for the big game this season! I mean, if you can't indulge before and during a football game, what the hell is the point of all the delicious, extravagant, decadent food out there in the world? I know that's a wee bit dramatic, but that's how freaking amazing these brisket bombs. They come together in about 15 minutes and they'll have everyone begging for more.

INSTRUCTIONS: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line two baking sheets with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Separate biscuits. Flatten out each biscuit slightly and place 1 to 2 cubes of cheese in the center. Top with chopped biscuit and wrap the biscuit around the filling. Pinch the seams tightly and place seam-side down on the lined baking sheets. In a small bowl, combine melted butter, garlic powder and onion powder. Brush the tops of the biscuits with the seasoned butter. Bake 10 minutes. Remove from oven and brush the tops of the biscuits again with the seasoned butter. Serve with BBQ sauce.

You know when you have leftovers hanging around and you have ZERO idea what to do with them? My refrigerator is usually a mash up of random BBQ leftovers, some pasta and whatever else I happen to have leftover from last night's BBQ party. There's a limit to how many times you can eat the same dish the same way. I mean, I love my brisket, but after a couple of nights of just brisket and a side salad, I'm getting bored.
I also happen to be lazy and have no desire to actually get too terribly creative unless I know it'll take me zero extra effort. Enter these little brisket mac n cheese sliders... Brisket Mac N Cheese Sliders are the new appetizer that you have absolutely no excuse not to make. Seriously, how easy are these little guys? You just throw some leftovers on a toasted bun and BAM, you have a completely new way to eat that brisket and mac n cheese that have been taking up valuable real estate in your refrigerator.
Plus, how fancy you get with this recipe is completely up to you. You can make your own smoked brisket or you can head over to Pig of the Month's shop to snag some of their oh-so tender brisket. For the mac n cheese, you can simply make these sliders with store-bought mac and cheese, or you can bust out grandma's favorite recipe to go the extra mile. Regardless, these sliders are just the right balance of meat and cheese to hit the spot with every bite. There's no going back once you've eaten these sliders, so get prepared to start craving mac n cheese on your sandwiches from here on out. Don't say I didn't warn you...
