When you go a really good BBQ place, you should definitely try the burnt ends. They are usually made when smoking a brisket. You cut off the fatty end and cut it into cubes and then smoke it some more. That works great if you’re a big BBQ joint and you’re smoking like 20 briskets. You’ll have plenty of burnt ends for your customers. But what about home smokers like me who just want to cook for the family? Well I found this poor man’s burnt ends recipe and I think it’s a great way to enjoy burnt ends at home.
I made a goal this summer to learn how to smoke. No, not cigarettes, that would be a terrible goal to set. I’m talking about meat. Smoking meats like a BBQ pit master has always been a goal of mine and this summer I took the first steps towards learning how. Now if you look at the prices of ribs or brisket at the supermarket, you’ll realize like I did that smoking meats is an expensive hobby. $50 for a brisket to learn how to smoke is not very affordable for me. What if I ruined it? I needed a cheaper way to learn and I came up with smoked meatloaf with bacon.
In the never ending battle to keep my weight down, I have cut out the carbs in my breakfast. I could eat a egg sandwich for breakfast everyday of my life and be happy but cutting back a little at each meal is going to help me in the long run. Eggs and vegetables are on the menu now. Hold the toast, hide the rolls, even the lowly tortilla wrap isn’t welcome on the breakfast table anymore. Here’s some of the ways that I make a scrambled egg bowl.
Scrambled eggs are great. They’re easy to make and taste good. But by themselves, they’re aren’t going to satisfy my hunger enough to make it to lunch. Don’t you hate it when you pack a lunch for work and you eat it before 10:00 am? I do love eating vegetables. So why not add them together with eggs in a scrambled egg bowl.
