For picnic season or an office potluck, adding some award-winning Zest Coast Original seasoning blend to a mayo-based pasta salad really kicks it up a notch. This recipe can easily be made with canned tuna instead of chicken. And a bonus is that if you make it the night before, it gets better by letting the flavors meld.
I don't find many people that don't like ribs. But I do find that people can really have a preference in sauces. So change it up -skip the sauce and go dry! Dry rub style allows the meat to be the star. Have a few sauces available for those that want it.
Boiled peanuts are a southern snacking tradition. Great for tailgates, cookouts and watching the game. Fire departments and church groups used to do large "boils" for fund raisers. It is not unusual to see Boiled P-Nuts signs along the highways in the south. You can make a large batch with the Instant Pot and freeze some for the next big game.
Want a super easy appetizer? This is a go to appetizer or game time party food. I keep shrimp in the freezer in case we need something quick. This one is super simple and a crowd pleaser. You can make a small batch or go big if needed. Same amount of work either way.
Jalapeno Poppers (aka ABTs) are always a hit at parties and tailgates. This version includes a Lit'l Smokie for added sustenance for the big game. The post includes a video for the technique followed by complete step by step instructions.
This is a great recipe to throw together as an appetizer for a party or tailgating. You can make this with leftover salmon (the fish, not the band) or freshly smoked salmon. Refrigerating the smoked fish prior to making the spread enhances the smoked flavor. I added Jalapeno to this version.
These wings are done in the style of Memphis Dry Rub Ribs. We toss in just a very small amount of sauce to help the rub stick to the wings after cooking. But otherwise they are dry.
I know a lot of people that get excited about bacon. Well, you should see them when they taste smoked pork belly. Taste sensation! It is really quite simple. Any smoker or grill (set up indirect) will work. Watch the video for a crash course and then read the blog post for more details.
