Let's get Cookin!!!

Sunday, August 5, 2012


This is the first weekend in over a month that we have not been involved in a BBQ competition. Needless to say the Meat Adventures continues. Last weekend we were in Montague, California and we found ‘Shasta Valley Meats’. Shasta Valley Meats is a local butcher who specializes in processing local farmers and hunter’s meat needs. We had to pay them a visit. They just happened to have a fresh batch of bratwurst that had our name on it. We grilled them and enjoyed them immensely.

Nest on the grill was a marinated flank (flap) steak. What made this marinade special was the red curry paste and lime juice that covered it. Our local International market sells small cans of red curry paste. This was combined with fresh squeezed lime juice from our lime tree in the backyard. A little vegetable oil was added and all was put in the ice cave for several hours. A dusting of salt and pepper and a blast of fire from mesquite charcoals finished our spicy meat treat. Next, on the fire will be some beef cheeks. Stay tuned!

I heard about a "recipe" for brats wrapped in hamburger, then wrapped in bacon, chilled, then bbqd. If you have leftover brats...

Zoomie that sounds great but I would not used cooked Brats.
I am glad your bacon turned out and I hope you are a convert.

Even though you had me at meats what sides did you have. Inquiring minds want to know.
