tenderloin smoked tomato

3 chili rubbed beef tenderloin, local squash, smoked tomato, annatto red taters, oregano and queso fresco.



stonewall from montana wagyu cattle co.  stopped by with a few samples the other day.  yum.  we picked up some burger and some short ribs.


the burger was amazing, best ever.  the short ribs made my jaw drop.  just look at it.  the marbling has marbling  sold them out.  braised in red wine and served over ancho~blue cheese mashers with chili sauce.  sorry i dont have a picture.

z-bbq1i was born in texas.  my youthwas filled with july 4th weekends spent at the vfw bbq in smithville texas.  as far as i know, this spawned my earliest food memory.  the best smoked brisket i have ever had.  down the road from my grandparents house was a BBQ shack called ‘zimmerhanzels’.  i always looked forward to the smokey goodness of their brisket.  almost more than the fireworks stand.  my grandparents have passed on but their house is still there and so is zimmerhanzels.  my aunt fixed up the house and lives there part of the year.  my mother goes to visit several times a year and returns with tasty treats from the lone star state.  whole frozen briskets from the big ‘z’.  i was once stopped by airport security for having 20lbs of foil wrapped brisket in my bag.  i think they thought it was something else.  my mother recently returned from texas and gave me some of the coveted meat for my own.  on the way home i stopped and bought a loaf of white bread.  the crumbs are still on my keyboard as i write this.

we received some stock bones from MFC.  we roasted them off and realized that the didnt fit in the stock pot very well.  a few phone calls and nick had his buddy drop by with a hack saw so we could make the necessary modifications.

nick in action.
