Here is our take on a classic smoked Queso dip, inspired by our good friends at Meat Church. Today we are using Meat Church holy Voodoo seasoning however you may substitute Holy cow or any other good seasoning. The use of Holy Voodoo gives the dip a nice extra kick. Meat Church uses a product called Rotel as the tomato component, however today I substituted Fire Roasted Salsa and the results are spectacular. This cheesy dip is a easy to prepare and will wow your guests.
One of my favorite Christmas recipes is Rosemary smoked sweet and spicy nuts. I make it every year, but I have never written the recipe down until now. This is one of those recipes where you can make a big batch early in December and toss it in the fridge and munch on them right up until Christmas. Its far healthier than crushing a whole bag of potato chips too, so keep the holiday pounds off with this healthier snack nut mix.
Corn bread goes with so many things! I love a good corn bread with all forms of barbecue, but also with Chili, soup, stew and more. It’s also super easy to make and it is ready fast. So next time you are throwing down some amazing que, consider putting a cast iron of this fluffy bread on there to make it the ultimate comfort meal.
Decorative pumpkins can be so much more than decoration if you learn to use the parts that most people throw away. Pumpkin seeds are super slimy and gross to take out of the pumpkin, but kids love doing it. After a little rinse, some drying and seasoning, they are amazing roasted on your smoker! So don’t throw away the seeds, follow this recipe to have a delicious and healthy snack.
I love smoked sausage, if I am ever going to a smokehouse for dinner I always get the sausage as one of my meats. I also love bacon, ever since I won the Canadian bacon championships its been a passion of mine to include bacon with all sorts of dishes. When you combine bacon and sausage you really pump up the flavours of both meats, so I recommend giving it a try.
Queso is a very popular Mexican style cheese dip. It literally means “Cheese” in Spanish, but this dip is so much more than just cheese. I’ve always been a fan of Tostitos Queso dip out of the jar; in fact I can tell when my wife is really happy with me because she will buy me some at the grocery store. The home-made stuff is even better though, and you can mix it up with your own mix of flavours and spice as well. Don’t be afraid to try your own mix here, the way we do it is the way we like it, but you can easily add or subtract from the ingredients list to make it your own.
