    Smoked Beef Cheeks (Slices, Tacos & Sandwiches)

    Beef cheeks are an underrated gem of meat that goes perfect in tacos and sandwiches, or just plain on their own.

Check out this recipe from the online grill. 

    Pork Belly Burnt Ends

    Pork Belly Burnt Ends are made by first cubing pork belly, then smoking it on low for some time before pouring the sauce over the meat. The same process is used for beef brisket burnt ends. If you need something to nosh on, here's what I have for you. Pork belly is best because of the perfect ratio between meat and fat. Don't eat these if your doctor has warned against it as well because they probably won't be too good for you after a full session... Vindulge has a great recipe for these.

    Beef Brisket

    Brisket has become increasingly popular over the years, and for good reason. When prepared properly, brisket is DELICIOUS! However, it can be difficult to prepare as BBQ requires LOW and SLOW cooking times. If you're willing to put in the time and effort to slow-smoke your brisket, it will reward you with its rich, hearty flavours. Be sure to try a variety of rubs and mops for the perfect mix of sweet and savoury! We love this recipe from Grillgirl, the 'better than sex' recipe.
