Easiest Grilled WHOLE Chicken! Spatchcock!
This is a super simple (and cheap) way to grill up a chicken. Grilling a whole chicken is easy when you know how to do it right. We decided to spatchcock our chicken on a charcoal grill so we could control some heat but still get that BBQ flavor and texture. Try this. It won't disappoint.
Perfect summertime drink | Citrus Rosemary Spritzer
Local gin, fresh rosemary and citrus come together to make a perfect compliment for roasted chicken, salmon or really whatever you want! Perfect as a single cocktail or prepared in a pitcher, you'll be set to chill all summer long.
Roasted Broccoli Salad
Broccoli doesn’t have to be bland or smothered in cheese sauce. Eat delicious while staying healthy because we can’t always eat naughty. Roasting these babies in the oven is a great way to deepen all the flavors we are adding. Expect to have your taste buds blown to another level with a little sweet here, a little salty there, and a tiny bit of spicy. This is a quick and simple recipe that packs lots of flavor. Try this roasted broccoli recipe for your next gathering or in a weeknight meal.
West Coast Ribs
Ribs don't always need to be slathered and smothered, we're here to show you a new way to enjoy one of the best meats off the grill: maple & honey glazed ribs! 
Stacked Mac & Cheese
We love Mac and Cheese so much that we made it thick... and from scratch. This recipe is easy and pretty straight forward. We add a little crunch at the end by putting it in the broiler in a large cast iron pan. Trust us, it's delicious. Definitely make this for you and your family.
Beef, Chicken, and Veggie Kebabs + Potato Wedges
How many different ways can you spell kebab? .... kabab.... kebob.... kabob? All we know is that they're delicious and a great Father's Day grilling idea! We did some with steak and some with chicken and of course veggies. Then...
Smoked Maple Old Fashioned
This is our Smoked Maple Old Fashioned. It's delicious, smoky and goes down smooth. We use the smoker and a woodchip to give us that smoke flavor and use maple syrup in place of sugar or simple syrup. If you're a whiskey lover, this is definitely a drink you should try!
BOMB Burnt Ends

This is a simple and easy take the point of your brisket cook and turn it into one of our favorites... BURNT ENDS. We did this on the pellet grill but you can use any smoker. Once you have a cooked brisket point, this is very easy to do. Hope you like it as much as we do!

OVERNIGHT Brisket Cook! The Easiest Way!
There's a few different ways to do it. In this brisket cook, we took it overnight very low and slow. We used our own seasonings but Texas style salt and pepper (or your favorite beef rub) works just fine too.
Refreshing Whisky Mule // The Cali Mule
It's very refreshing with loads of citrus and just the right amount of ginger beer, perfect for summer. The Kentucky Mule is a classic cocktail that's been around since the 1940's. This is our West coast take on a mule that includes some citrus, like oranges, similar to margaritas that are very popular on the West coast. This is a great summer drink that goes well with any outdoor or backyard event and is great with BBQ!
Apple Pie the Easy Way
This apple pie is all about keeping the flavors and textures that we all know and love about apple pie and making it a little easier. Here, we make our own ice cream but you can skip that if you want to make it even easier. This goes great with anything but we think it's a great finisher to some good BBQ.
The best way to cook TRI TIP!! Low and Slow
This is by FAR our favorite way to cook Tri Tip. Most people cook this like a steak but we love cooking this low and slow like a brisket. This is great to do on any kind of smoker from a pellet smoker to an offset smoker.
