Twice Grilled Potatoes

Cover russet potatoes with olive oil and sprinkle top with Atlantic Saltworks Salt Flake.  Put on grill for about an hour, vents wide open.


Hollow out the potatoes once soft put soft potatoes guts aside.


Mix up equal parts shredded cheddar and cream cheese and butter and add just a touch of your favorite BBQ rub for color and a little kick.  Then add your potato guts and some chopped up cooked bacon and restuff the hollowed out potatoes.


Toss em on the grill before your steaks to get that cheesy goodness to melt all throughout the potato.


Once you got meltage, you’re good, time to eat!

final crispCaramel Apple Crisp

A few years ago I created and posted this recipe…It’s become a fall favorite in our home…If you love caramel apples, and apple crisp, this is a must try recipe! I can’t wait to serve it for dessert tonight with a scoop of Vanilla Bean Gelato using apples from our dear friends Jeremy and Tanya Frost’s fruitful back yard Apple Tree! I have never seen a tree bearing 2 different verities of apples growing from a single tree trunk! Both the red Gala and yellow Golden Delicious tasted delicious! Jeremy held the ladder for me while I hand picked and filled 2 large bags last Saturday! The Frost’s apple tree was a magnificent sight in their yeard this year! Jeremy reported that this years harvest is the best in the past several years, and that this was the first year it beared two types of apples. Thank you for sharing your special tree with me, I’m having a great time in the kitchen whipping up our fall favorite confections and have also created a few new recipes that have been big hits!

The Construction of A @SistaFelicia Mudiga Steak Sandwich Using The @STOKGrills Island Grill @CapeAnnFMkt

Sold Out Once Again- It was hilarious.  People walking by and get a whiff of the mudiga steaks on the grill and it’s like they were led by their nose to her spot.  If you’re cooking on nights like last night when you could go to The Cape Ann Farmer’s Market and get grub like this- You Crazy.

Note The Generous Amount Of Work Space The STOK Island Grill Affords Making It Perfect For The Farmer’s Market

Video: Making Pizza With KettlePizza Inventor/Owners and Sista Felicia At The Crib Part I

Part 1) Talking To Al Contarino and George Peters About The Inspiration For The KettlePizza System and Setting Up The KettlePizza Insert With The ProGrate. In part 2 we videotape making the pies.

We used the STOK Charcoal Drum Grill,Weber RapidFire Chimney and the KettlePizza Pro Kit which includes the basic KettlePizza kit PLUS the ProGrate/Tombstone for higher volume/higher temperature pizza bakes.

Note: we cooked pizza last night on Sista Felicia’s new STOK Drum and we used the included charcoal basket which comes with the STOK and does teh same thing as the Weber Rapidfire Chimney only the STOK system comes with the charcoal basket and with Weber you need to buy a chimney as an accessory.








@SistaFelicia Put On An Absolute Backyard #Pizza Cooking Clinic Using @KettlePizza and My @STOKGrills Charcoal Drum



Al Contarino and George Peters are the creators and owners Of KettlePizza, an insert system that turns charcoal kettle grills into outdoor pizza ovens for very little money.  As it turns out Al’s sister Donna is a regular GMG reader and after seeing my obsession with grilling and that I bought a KettlePizza insert, she suggested that Al and I get together and have at it making some backyard pies.

Well I feel pretty comfortable cooking up meat but when it comes to dough and pizza making obviously I’m gonna enlist Sista Felicia who already has her own dough recipe and multiple pizza recipes in her cookbook- Gifts of Gold (purchase her cookbook here)

Felicia maintained that one of the key reasons for the over the top results besides having awesome equipment in the Stok Drum Charcoal Grill and KettlePizza was the very best ingredients from Sclafani’s Italian Bakery and The Cave

The fun we had making pizzas in the back yard combined with the crazy incredible results makes The KettlePizza system an absolute no brainer must have grill component.
