Devils on Horseback


20 wooden toothpicks

1/4 cup soy sauce

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

3/4 cup dark brown sugar

20 dates, pitted and left whole

20 whole smoked almonds

10 bacon slices, cut in half crosswise


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Soak the toothpicks in a bowl of water. Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, mix together the soy sauce and ground ginger. Place the brown sugar into a shallow bowl. Spread open a pitted date, then stuff it with a smoked almond. Wrap the date with half a bacon slice, secure it with a toothpick, dip the bundle in soy sauce mixture, and then dip it into brown sugar.
  3. Place the wrapped dates into the prepared baking dish. If desired, sprinkle a little more brown sugar over the bundles.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the bacon is brown and crisp, 15 to 25 minutes. Allow to cool for about 15 minutes before serving; serve warm or at room temperature.


Corned Beef Burnt Ends


1 cup favorite BBQ Rub

One 2-3 pound Corned Beef Brisket

8 slider buns

2 cups freshly fried onion straws

8 slices provolone cheese

1 cup your favorite bbq sauce


Special equipment: a smoker or grill

Prepare a smoker or a grill, following the manufacturer's directions. Stabilize the temperature at 220 degrees F. Use a mild wood such as hickory or cherry for the smoke flavor. Generously cover all sides of the brisket with the rub and gently massage it in. Reserve the leftover rub. Smoke the meat until an instant-read thermometer registers 195 degrees F when inserted into the thick part of the roast, Monitor the internal temperature carefully.

Trim the visible fat from the roast pieces and coat it with the reserved rub. Return the meat to the smoker and continue cooking until the internal temperature of the roast reaches 210 degrees F. Remove the roast pieces from the smoker to a cutting board and let it sit for 10 to 20 minutes. Cut into chunks and transfer them to a serving platter.

Serve it hot on toasted buns with fresh fried onion straws, cheese, and bbq sauce.
