Ingredients

  • 4 tsp minced canned chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce
  • 2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1½ tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp freshly ground black pepper 
  • 16 chicken wings, about 2½ pounds total, each one cut in half at the joint, wing tips removed and discarded
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove, grated or minced
  • 4 tsp cider vinegar
  • 2½ tsp hot pepper sauce
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup / 30 grams crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tbsp sour cream
  • 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 1 tbsp buttermilk
  • ½ tsp cider vinegar

Instructions

In a large bowl combine the paste ingredients. Add the wings and stir to coat them all over with the paste. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.

In a heavy, small saucepan over medium heat on the stove, warm the oil. Add the garlic and stir until aromatic, about 1 minute. Add the vinegar and hot pepper sauce and simmer for 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the hot sauce to a large glass or stainless steel bowl.

In a medium bowl combine the dressing ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Prepare the grill for indirect cooking over medium-high heat (about 450ºF).

Remove the wings from the bowl and wipe off most of the paste. Brown the wings over direct heat until grill marks appear, about 4 minutes, turning once. Then move the wings over indirect medium-high heat and continue grilling, with the lid closed, until the meat is no longer pink at the bone and the skin is crisp, about 15 minutes, turning occasionally. Transfer the wings to the bowl with the hot sauce; turn to coat. Return the wings to the grill and cook over direct heat for an additional 3 to 5 minutes, turning once or twice. Remove from the grill and serve with the blue cheese dressing.

Chicken and Pepper Nachos - From Weber Outdoor

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons prepared chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, each about 6 ounces
  • 2 large poblano chile peppers, each halved lengthwise, stemmed, and seeded
  • 1 large red bell pepper, halved lengthwise, stemmed, and seeded
  • 1 bag sturdy tortilla chips
  • 1 pound coarsely grated pepper jack cheese (about 4½ cups)
  • 5 scallions (white and light green parts only), finely chopped
  • ½ cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 cup salsa (optional)
  • ½ cup sour cream (optional)

Instructions

In a medium bowl mix the paste ingredients. Add the chicken breasts to the bowl, turn to coat them evenly, and then transfer them to a plate, leaving any remaining paste in the bowl. Allow the chicken breasts to marinate at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling.

Prepare the grill for direct and indirect cooking over medium heat (350° to 450°F).

Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the chicken breasts, smooth (skin) side down first, over direct medium heat, with the lid closed, until the meat is firm to the touch and opaque all the way to the center, 8 to 12 minutes, turning once or twice. At the same time, grill the poblano and bell pepper over direct medium heatuntil tender, 8 to 12 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from the grill and cut the chicken breasts into bite-sized pieces. Scrape away and discard the blackened skins from the poblano and bell pepper, and cut them into bite-sized pieces.

Layer the tortilla chips, chicken pieces, poblano, bell pepper, cheese, and scallions on two large sheet pans lined with parchment paper. Place the sheet pans over indirect medium heat (you will probably need to cook the nachos in two batches), close the lid, and cook until the cheese is melted, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the grill, sprinkle with cilantro, and serve immediately with the salsa and the sour cream, if using.

Once done, place the bread onto a platter and sed aside.

Cooking the Burger:Add the oil onto the hot griddle. Add the burger patties and season with salt and pepper. Allow them to cook around 4-5 minutes, juices will start to form on top of the patty. Using Bull’s spatula, turn the burgers over and allow them to finish cooking without moving or pressing down on them. As the burgers are finishing up, add more oil onto the hot skillet next to the burgers and saute the sauerkraut and thinly sliced pastrami. Cook until nice and hot, around 4 minutes.

Building the Burger: Place the hot sauerkraut and thinly sliced pastrami on top of each burger patty. Place the sliced cheese on top, add a few drops of water around the burger patties and close the lid of the griddle. Allow the burgers to steam inside the closed griddle, melting the cheese perfectly. Smother both sides of the toasted rye bread with thousand island dressing. Carefully place the burger onto dressed toasted bread, top off the layered burger with melted cheese with thinly sliced dill pickle, place the top dressed toasted bread on top and devour!\

Beer Bathed Brisket - From Weber Grills

Ingredients

Rub

  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon granulated onion
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 beef brisket, about 3 pounds
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seed
  • ½ cup / 120 milliliters ketchup
  • 1 cup / 240 milliliters beef broth
  • 2 cups / 480 milliliters (1 pint) extra stout beer, such as Guinness®
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 6 hamburger buns, split

Instructions

In a small bowl combine the rub ingredients.

Press the rub into the brisket, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 2 to 4 hours.

Prepare the grill for indirect cooking over high heat (450° to 550°F).

Allow the brisket to stand at room temperature for 15 to 30 minutes before grilling. Generously brush the brisket with oil. Sear over direct heat, with the lid closed, until well browned, about 6 minutes, turning once. Transfer to a braising pan, such as a 13-by-9-inch heavy-gauge aluminum pan.

Decrease the temperature of the grill to low heat (250° to 350°F). In a medium saucepan over medium heat on the stove, melt the butter with the olive oil. Add the onion, garlic, and caraway seed and cook for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the ketchup and broth, whisk, and bring to a simmer. Add the beer and balsamic vinegar. Return to a simmer, then pour the liquid over the brisket so it comes one-half to two-thirds of the way up the sides; don’t overfill the pan. Cover with foil and grill over indirect low heat, with the lid closed, until fork tender, 3 to 4 hours, turning the brisket over twice. If using a charcoal grill, replenish the charcoal as needed to maintain a steady temperature between 250° and 350°F, adding 8 to 10 unlit briquettes after every 45 minutes to 1 hour of cooking time. Leave the lid off the grill for about 5 minutes to help the new briquettes light.

Remove the brisket from the grill. Remove the brisket from the pan and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes; reserve the cooking liquid to serve as a sauce. Cut across the grain into thin, diagonal slices. Season the sauce with salt and pepper. Serve the meat warm on a bun with the sauce.

Bon Appetite! Cheers!
