Grilling with House of Q: Inspired Recipes for Backyard Barbecues by Brian MiskoIf you love the taste of barbecue but worry about cooking the perfect steak or if you’re a whiz with burgers but want to grill other foods or if you harbor aspirations of presenting your own smoked brisket to a panel of trained judges, then this book is for you. BBQ Brian has spent more than a decade smoking and grilling foods, competing against other pit masters and learning from some of the best in the business. And not only does he regularly win awards for his barbecue and House of Q BBQ sauces, but he’s now one of the most sought-after teachers around. Why? Because he tells a great story, makes learning fun and easy and freely shares his recipes and his love of good food. Grilling with House of Q is part handsome cookbook, part instruction manual and part story collection. The result is that rare volume that entertains and becomes your go-to for delicious, no-fail smoked ribs, shrimp tacos, pulled pork and pit beans—or burritos, mac ’n’ cheese and baklava—all prepared on your grill and all eagerly anticipated by friends, backyard neighbors and barbecue judges.
Favorites Grilling with House of Q by Brian Misko
His delicious Pork and Beans was an instant hit with Angela, our Cashier Supervisor and she took it upon herself to learn how to make her new favourite dish so she could share it with her family. The bone makes the most flavourful broth, the meat is always tender and the skin can be used as cracklings. She even added double-smoked bacon for more meaty goodness. This recipe takes some time, but yields a lot of food! For added flavour, I recommend using dry beans and boiling them along with the ham hock, also saving dirtying another dish! But you can always skip that step for simplicity and substitute with canned beans, approx 1 can, for a total of 10 cans. Fill a large pot with water, enough to cover the ham hock plus a few inches , and bring to a boil, covered.
