About our Recipes
6
We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Royall Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker, Traeger, Char Griller side box smoker, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pellet heads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can even do some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste.

Now, you are ready for the grill.

Note: I sprayed the spring pan with a cooking spray for an easer release.

When you can insert a toothpick and it comes out dry (1 ½ hrs. here) pull it off the grill to cool. Mix up the last melted chocolate bar, coffee and pecans. Patti suggested we sprinkle some of the pecans on top for color contrast.
Chill for 4 hours or overnight before serving. We had good friends over and we all wanted it now, so we put it in the freezer for two hours. Perfect…
