Chai Smoked Spareribs

When Joanne Chang expanded beyond the world’s best cinnamon buns and scones to New England-sourced Taiwanese soul food and Southeast Asian street food, Boston perked up. Meyers + Chang is packed most nights with happy eaters and dishes to inspire that happiness. Thank goodness, Tara was also inspired to recreate one of their best dishes. Now

Bonfire Food: Banana Boats

S’mores have long held the seat of honor at summer bonfires.   The promise of melty chocolate and perfectly golden marshmallows sandwiched between two squares of graham crackers will quickly send kids running to look for the perfect roasting stick. It’s no question that these messy, decadent outdoor treats are worthy of the attention paid

Refrigerator Bread and Butter Pickles

If summer went exactly as planned, I’d spend cool July evenings around a big bonfire in my back yard.  Friends would gather, we’d cook easy summer dishes, grill up some meat and top our burgers and dogs with homemade fixin’s — like these bread and butter pickles.  Unfortunately, we’ve had quite a heat wave so

Wicked Good Barbecue

I like to be surrounded by cookbooks.  I let them pile up and inspire me.  Digging in to a new one or leafing through an old favorite make me equally happy.  They are a rainy day comfort, I can pick one up before bed, heck, some even make great beach reads.  And this one –

Pulled Pork Party

We’re a smoking couple and, by that, I don’t mean that we smoke cigarettes or revel in our looks, I promise. By smoking, I mean that we spend much of the summer, and I do mean *much* of the summer, slowly cooking all sorts of local meats with wet wood in different types of vessels

Buttermilk Slaw

I abhor traditional cole slaw. I know that’s strong words for a simple shredded salad, but supermarket delis have really spoiled traditional cole slaw for me. It always tastes the same – too creamy, heavy and, well, just like a big tub of mayonnaise with a few, sparse veggies. Today, I prepped burgers for some

Michelbob’s Ribs, Naples, Florida

Mmm, we love ribs. Hmm, love may be the wrong word and definitely an understatement. We’re obsessed with ribs. We try them everywhere we go and have become amateur pit masters, and by amateurs, I mean we own two smokers and one grill, we attend (but do not compete in) local barbecue competitions and we

Big, Gigantic, Cheesy, Lopsided, Not Perfect Burger

I don’t believe I ever shared photos of my big, gigantic, cheesy, lopsided burger: It’s nestled in a slightly-over-charred bun with butter lettuce leaves from my garden. It’s filled with gorgonzola cheese and topped with caramelized red onions. It’s thick and rich and lopsided, but perfect. Perfectly not perfect. And it looks damn pretty, albeit

Smoked Pork Butt, Pulled, Shredded, Whatever

by Maggie Battista

I set to cook on the morning of July 4th with so many meals in mind. So. Many. Meals. While I knew I was serving blue cheese filled all-natural burgers for the holiday barbecue, I had a two-pound piece of pork from the rear of the piggy that I wanted to smoke. It was a

Lemon Cilantro Potato Salad

by Maggie Battista

My husband loves potatoes. It’s a true love that began when he was a wee one fed piles of the mashed kind by his grandmother and mother at every meal. Every. Single. Meal. I’ve always been wary of attempting his family’s mashed recipe. I’m equally shy of his family’s potato salad recipe, a dish his
