South Carolina Mustard Wings

The wings have awaken! Yes, it's January, the month where I drop all other grilling and devote my attention to one of favorite things in the world—chicken wings. I currently have fifteen wing recipes on the blog, and I could probably keep doing variations of these crispy, juicy, tasty morsels until the end of time. I wanted to start my month of wings off strong, and I'm confident that these South Carolina mustard wings will deliver for you as well as they did for me.

Barbecue Scotch Eggs

The New Year has brought with it a spirit to try new things. While the nature of the blog requires me to cook different recipes constantly, at this point they're tending to become mostly variations on a theme. So it was actually not the easiest thing to come up with something completely different, but I finally found it in these barbecued scotch eggs—a recipe that ended up being equally challenging and rewarding.

Going in heavy on the acids, this sauce has a pucker inducing tartness that comes along with a barrage of spices that give it a spicy, earthy kick.

Char Siu Chicken Buns

Char Siu Chicken Buns

It's time to make the seasonal pivot from holiday roasts for large family meals to finger foods for the New Years and remainder of football season. For me, this is truly the most magical time of year because party foods just happens to be my favorite culinary genre—I can eat the likes of wings, jalapeño poppers, potato skins, and more until the end of time. One item fitting squarely into that category that I love to order but have never cooked is steamed buns. It doesn't seem to matter what form of roasted or grilled meat that gets sandwiches between these soft Chinese buns, they always seems to hit the spot and their ability to consume easily with one hand in a couple bites make them perfect party fodder. To take my first shot at some great steamed buns, I started with a tried and true char siu recipe applied to chicken that was grilled, sliced, and finished with crisp lettuce, tart pickles, and a slather of sweet hoisin sauce.
