About this Cook
Love to cook! I have 5 grills and a great smoker. Enjoy creating new recipes....beef, venison, seafood, gumbos, chili, chicken, pork, crazy omelets...and love flipping veggies and concoctions in the skillet like a chef. I am an investment advisor by trade. Have a daughter who is a Dr. of Pharmacy, a step son going to pharmacy school, a my youngest son is in pro baseball with Arizona Diamondbacks organization.
My favorite things to cook
Tri-tip, Boston Butts(awesome), pork ribs, beef ribs, brisket, grilled fish and seafood, Steaks! Red beans and rice, jambalaya, seafood gumbo! Venison that you won't believe...venison medallions with tarragon cream sauce I created and one of my favs...the list goes on...
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom could bake the best bread ever...I can't, but I loved to see her shine! I have 3 brothers and I am the meat man! We always have traditional turkey and dressing Thanksgiving, Christmas we pick a cuisine...we'll do Mexican, Italian, tropical, stuff!
My cooking triumphs
Perfecting very tasty venison recipes. Steaks..learning how to pick 'um then the rub. Mastering Boston Butts and BBQ sauces like to use different style sauces. And my two baking specialties...carrot cake and biscuits. Oh yeah my rotisserie chicken over charcoal is dang good.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to create a chocolate pecan pie....on my gosh. One slice would break a window!

Cajun Chicken and Sausage Gumbo
I have been making gumbo for a long time. This is a good recipe for a rustic gumbo.....but only use a half cup oil and flour. The same thickening effect will happen! One cup of oil will leave oil on your teeth. This recipe after simmering is for 4 servings....that much oil is disgusting. Try a half-cup, oil/flour roux and the rest is pretty dang on point. Simple, rustic gumbo. I have made plenty of gumbo for 8-10 people with just a half cup of oil and flour.

Grilled Chicken with Herbs
This is a wonderful grilled chicken recipe. I thought the amount of Balsamic would be a little tart, but actually pretty tasty. I used all fresh herbs, but had no parsley, so used cilantro instead and we loved it. I should have added a touch more kosher salt to the marinade. Next time I will add a little salt and probably add a little more olive oil. This is a very nice grilled chicken! I will save this one and make again!

Venison Wraps
I have been cooking a simular recipe for years with maple bacon and that is what I had on hand. That being the only ingredient change I made. These are very tasty! if you don't like the heat, cut the jalapeno slice in half, but they are so good in this recipe. It was raining, so I broiled them, turning once, until bacon was crispy. Also, I "nuked" the bacon half done to make sure the bacon was done and the venison NOT overcooked. This recipe is a keeper and will be devoured again!
