Smoked Filet Mignon

This is an Edwards’ household classic. This is the steak I make when we have something to celebrate, when one of us has had a hard week or if one of us is trying to comfort the other. No joke, the first time I made this steak my wife and I stood at our kitchen counter and at an entire filet standing up, THAT’S how good this thing is. We have since ordered steaks at restaurants and had steaks at get togethers. It never fails my wife gives me those eyes telling me “It’s not your special steak”. And it’s not. I don’t generally try to brag on here. But this steak is damn good. Make it. Do it. Like tomorrow. Happy Holidays, everyone!

Smoked Brussel Sprouts

Who says smoking has to just be for meats? In our household we have many seasons where we go in and out of eating meat. My wife is always a huge fan of these Brussel sprouts. Anything healthy that tastes good is always a hit in her book. So try these as a killer side to your favorite entrée or enjoy these as an appetizer like we do! (They rarely make it to the dinner table before they’re gone). This recipe is great if you’re short on ingredients and is super customizable to fit your family’s taste. My family always wants Balsamic glaze and fresh grated cheese to top most of our apps. Enjoy!

Smoked Prosciutto Filet

Steak dinner, it’s a classic dish we’re all familiar with. What we’re learning in the food industry is that this up-and-coming generation loves to put new spins on classic dishes. While a cut of meat wrapped in bacon is no new player in the game, I encourage you to elevate your next steak night with this dish. The Smoked Prosciutto Filet. The thin, delicate prosciutto shrink wraps itself and seals the butter and seasonings into your steak. My wife and I had a fun time going live on Instagram and cooking this dish with you in our kitchen. So put a new spin on an old classic for your next steak dinner and try this recipe! Happy smoking!

Smoked Salmon Log

This Smoked Salmon Log is perfect for a party appetizer. You can whip this recipe together fairly quickly and the fresh salmon takes the flavor to a whole other level. I used honey coated pecans that I got from my local grocery store and they bring a hint of sweetness to the appetizer.

Enchilada Skillet

This “Enchilada Skillet” is made with Smoked Chicken breast covered in the dirty bird seasoning. The flavors in this dish are not your typical Enchilada flavor since I used BBQ seasonings.

Bacon Wrapped Shrimp

This tasty recipe was designed to be cooked on the P10 Bradley Smoker. Some of the Bradley Smokers do not get up to 320 degrees F, however the P10 series does. I used my Thermoworks instant read thermometer to make sure these shrimp don’t get over cooked. This is a quick and easy recipe you can use for family gatherings or tailgating events. The Lime/Honey mixture compliments each other perfectly for some savory flavor.

Sidecar Barley & Wine Bar

If you’re looking for a new place to try in the local 918 area, stop by Sidecar Barley & Wine Bar. The newest location is right off cherry street on the rooftop of some of the newest apartments. Take the elevator to the top floor and get your drink on! I had the pleasure of talking to the GM Alex Roth and sampling several drinks and entrees. This place is so busy on a Friday/Saturday night with lots of seats either inside or by the firepit. My wife and I joined Sidecar on their opening weekend as the live music was playing. I would recommend this place for anyone who wants to grab a drink and get small, portioned entrees. This is the place to go to get your weekend started right before hitting the town. See below for some of the entrees/drinks I tried on my visit.

High Roller

My wife sometimes says my “too much” gene is flaring up. Sometimes, she’s right. Less is more. But sometimes, on rare occasions, “too much” is never enough. And baby, this is it. This stuffed chicken has just about anything and everything one could imagine. This chicken has the perfect blend of sweet honey barbeque, cream cheese and the tangy flavors of the peppers and spinach. Sure, this recipe seems like a lot; and it is. But in the best way possible. If you’re looking for way too much, give this a whirl.
