The A-A-Ron Burger

The A-A-Ron Burger

A couple weeks ago, a group of my friends got together for our annual fantasy football draft. I got first pick, so Mr. Luck best have a great season! We all bring in a bunch of snacks, pizzas, etc., and I brought along some pretzels and horseradish cheddar cheese dip. It’s a simple cheese dip ... Read More »

The BBQ Sandwich, Rethunk

The BBQ Sandwich, Rethunk

The sandwich, whether pulled pork or brisket or rib-ends or pulled chicken, is at the heart of the barbecue world. Chicken and ribs don’t need bread, but it’s often served with it anyway. Traditionally, it’s been the same thing for years, though a great way to have bbq: a bun or bread, stuffed with meat ... Read More »

Derby Day Grilled Sandwiches

Derby Day Grilled Sandwiches

I’ve done the smoky pecan mint julep for Derby Day; now it’s time to have a bit to eat. The Kentucky Derby is only 2 minutes long, there’s no need to go hungry, right? My solution is to have smaller sandwiches that can easily be eaten, while also enjoying the smoky pecan mint julep, during ... Read More »

You Need A Grill For Grilled Cheese

You Need A Grill For Grilled Cheese

How can you call a sandwich made in a skillet a “grilled” anything? In my world, that’s just fooling yourself! So how do you make grilled cheese on a grill? It’s easy… Just set up the grill for medium heat, and put the sandwich right on the grate. Turn it 90 degrees after a minute ... Read More »

Sunday’s Burger

Sunday’s Burger

For some reason, I have really just wanted a good burger lately.  My wife and I went to a local tavern, and the burger was fine, but just not what I was needing. To take care of my hankering for a good burger, I took matters into my own hands, and started up the grill. ... Read More »

Better than leftovers #3 – Pulled Pork

For my latest Better Than Leftovers entry, I smoked about 50 pounds of Boston butt roasts the other day. We gave away free pulled pork sandwiches for the fall kickoff of the Dayton Vineyard’s vineyardMEN ministry. We had a great turn out, but there was some pork left over. Some went to Hal, a friend ...

This Week At Livefire

This year’s Labor Day started early for me. I had to get up at 5:15 am to get things loaded into the car to head to downtown Cincinnati. I was asked to do another segment on Fox 19 Morning News for Labor Day! Fortunately, Fox 19 put the video from the segment on their web ... Read More »

apple bacon salad

I like cole slaw, especially with pork. However, not everyone feels the same way, so I’ve had it on my mind to try to come up with something as an alternative to cole slaw. The first thing that came to mind, I hate to admit, was an old Brady Bunch show, where Peter was having ... Read More »

sonic-inspired breakfast (and Christmas countdown)

It’s now 24 days until Christmas, and my early present is I got a new job!  Yea! I may be nuts, but I kind of like the Sonic commercials.  The latest breakfast treat is their sausage biscuit dippers.  I decided to do my own version, which I call Dunkers, to make sure I don’t infringe ...

smoked tomatoes

I don’t remember a year where our tomato season has lasted so long.  It’s mid October, and we’re still getting tomatoes! I stopped by our favorite local tomato supplier, a family that just has a great garden and sells their tomatoes out of their barn.  There were tons of Roma tomatoes, so I loaded up ... Read More »

Variations on a theme, or sandwich jazz

I’ve not been cooking a whole lot lately, as I’ve been very frugal.  I’ve been looking for new work and just trying to cut back until something comes through that I think is a good fit.  Coupled with that, my new venture into the Adopt-a-Blogger program by Kristen has me thinking sandwiches, thanks to my ...
