Smoked Buffalo Cauliflower

My all-time favorite game time food is smoked Buffalo wings ̶ or maybe I should say it used to be. This Smoked Buffalo Cauliflower is a hot contender for the number one spot.

Ingredients 1 dried pasilla chile 1 tablespoon chopped dried shallot 1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt 1 teaspoon paprika 1 teaspoon turbinado sugar 2 cauliflower heads 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive...

A quick brining in buttermilk and hot sauce yields tender and flavorful meat. The chile rub on the outside finishes the wings off with a perfect crust. I describe the heat-level on these as medium-hot. Ingredients For brining 1 cup buttermilk 9 ounces hot sauce (I use 1 x 5-ounce bottle of Cholula and 1 x 4-ounce bottle of El Yucateco Habanero Hot Sauce)...

Servings 4 Ingredients 1 Culver duck, about 5 pounds Kosher salt Freshly-ground black pepper For the pickled persimmons 1 cup filtered water 2 cups apple cider vinegar 1 cup honey 4 teaspoons kosher salt 2 ripe persimmons, thinly sliced on...

Grilled Kale Salad with Goat Cheese Polenta Recipe

This is the perfect salad to prepare on the Kalamazoo Gaucho Grill, and kale has never tasted so good! Brushed with garlic oil and grilled over a wood fire, it develops earthy flavors as the leaves turn crispy around the edges. Goat cheese polenta is grilled as well, for a delightfully distinctive flavor. Blistered cherry tomatoes and maple vinaigrette add the perfect touch of sweetness. Make the polenta a day in advance so that it is easier to grill. Servings 4 Ingredients For the goat cheese polenta 4 ounces goat’s milk brie, we use Wellspring Creamery 1 cup goat’s...
