Ingredients
3 packages Fossil Farms Berkshire Pork St. Louis Ribs

Dry Rub
1/3 cup chili powder
4 tbsp. ground cumin
4 tbsp. onion powder
4 tbsp. ground allspice
4 tbsp. celery salt
4 tbsp ground coriander seed

Wet Rub
4 1⁄2 cup ketchup
1 1⁄2 cup Molasses
1 cup Maple syrup
2 1⁄2 cup cider vinegar
3⁄4 cup Bourbon
3⁄4 cup coffee
3⁄4 cup Dijon mustard
2 oz. Tabasco

Directions
Gather all dry ingredients and mix together in a large bowl. In a large soup pot, toast the spices with enough cider vinegar to make a paste-like consistency. Once the spices become smoky and fragrant, transfer the toasted spice-paste into a large pot and incorporate the wet ingredients. Use an immersion blender or whisk to emulsify the mixture as some of the spice-paste and Dijon mustard will be slow to dissolve smoothly. Bring to a boil. Cut the heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes. Smoke the ribs with cherry and apple wood until meat is falling off the bone.

Download printable .pdf file.

Ingredients
2, ten to twelve oz. Fossil Farms Bison Ribeye Steaks
Canola Oil
Kosher Salt
Black pepper
1 cup water
1 tbsp. kosher salt
1 head garlic, minced
1 cup packed Italian parsley
½ cup fresh oregano leaves
½ cup packed cilantro leaves
2 tsp red chili flakes
¼ c good quality red wine vinegar
½ c good quality extra-virgin olive oil

Directions for Chimichurri
Make chimichurri sauce at least 4 hours before serving. Dissolve kosher salt into 1 cup hot water. Pop in the refrigerator to chill while preparing the rest of the recipe. Peel and separate head of garlic into individual cloves. Mince and add to a small mixing bowl with chili flakes. Finely chop all herbs being careful not to chop too much, as the herbs will bruise and turn black. Add to bowl. Whisk in red wine vinegar and olive oil. Store in an airtight container until ready to use. Makes 1 pint.

Directions
Pull steaks out to temper. It will allow for more even cooking. Set up a charcoal grill for direct heat. You want to be able to hold your hand above the grate for only 2 seconds. It needs to be medium-high but not so white hot that it will burn your steaks. Brush steaks with canola oil. Liberally season steaks with salt. Cook steaks 4-5 minutes per side, allowing for a good char on the outside. Don’t touch it! Allow steaks to rest for at least 10-15 minutes before slicing and serving. Finish steaks with a few grinds of fresh black pepper (black pepper burns at high heat so it’s best to add after) and a healthy spoonful of chimichurri sauce.

Grilled Duck with Figs and Shallots

Grilled Duck with Figs and Shallots by Michele Baldacci

Download printable .pdf file.

This dish is as delicious as it is messy in preparation. As forewarning, be sure not to cook this dish inside your house or you could get smoked out very quickly. I prefer to eat my grilled duck with a side of chick peas, but it’s also fantastic with roasted potatoes.

Ingredients
For the duck
2 Fossil Farms duck breasts
2 pinches of salt
2 tsp honey
2 dry figs

Shallot Marmalade
40 large cloves of shallots, peeled and sliced
4 tbsp. sugar
6 dry figs
1 tbsp. plus 1 cup water
1 lemon, juiced

Directions
Clean the duck breasts so that they are free of any cartilage. Score the fat in a crisscross diagonal across the skin of the birds. We do this because it allows the heat to reach the meat more easily.

In a small pot, add sugar and water. Stir quickly until the water is fully absorbed. Turn on the stove to medium heat. Add the sliced shallots and stir them into the sugar solution, then pour in the lemon juice and cover the pan. Blend the figs in a blender or food processor until they are almost pureed. Add figs to the marmalade with one cup of water. Let it cook on low heat for about an hour. The result should be a dense marmalade. Add more water while it’s cooking if needed.

Preheat the grill. Cook the duck breast for about 12 minutes on both sides. Three minutes, divided into four parts: the first three minutes on the skin, then flip it over. Pour the honey and salt on the cooked skin and cook for three more minutes. Repeat this twice. The fat of the breast will drip into the flame and produce a lot of flame. This helps create a crispy skin. When you’re done, set the breasts aside and cover them with aluminum foil. Let them rest for one minute. Slice them thinly on their shorter, horizontal side. Display the slices onto a plate and add a pinch of salt and drizzle with extra virgin olive oil. Serve with the shallot marmalade and two whole dry figs.

Ingredients
5 lb. Fossil Farms Wild Boar Belly
1 c Kosher salt
¼ c raw demerara sugar
¼ c dark brown sugar
1/8 c ground toasted Pasilla de Oaxaca chile (you can substitute Ancho chili or Chipotle) Equal parts oak, pecan, and hickory wood chips (if using a smoker)

Find a container or Ziploc bag large enough to hold the Wild Boar Belly. Make rub by combining salt, sugars, and chile. Rub mix all over the belly and place in container.

Set up your smoker to 200F. Smoke for 2-3 hours or until the internal temperature of the belly is 150F. You can do this in a low oven as well, however you won’t get the smoke flavor you are going after. Enjoy thick, sliced, or diced!

Smoked Brisket, Texas Style

Fossil Farms Smoked Brisket, Texas Style

Serves a lot

Download printable .pdf file.

There are a million different BBQ rubs and recipes on the market. In Texas, good BBQ is all about the meat and the smoke. This recipe is incredibly simple, but the most important ingredient is patience. You can’t rush good barbecue.

Ingredients
1 ea. Fossil Farms Local Angus Brisket
1⁄2 c Kosher salt
1⁄2 c Medium coarse black pepper
1⁄2 c vinegar based hot sauce such as Crystal
1⁄2 c water
Oak & Hickory wood
Butcher paper or aluminum foil

Directions
1. Set up a fire for indirect heat between 250F-275F- preferably with an offset smoker using a combination of oak and hickory wood.
2. Trim brisket of any excess fat. You want fat, but if there is anything crazy hanging off, you can get rid of it.
3. Liberally season with equal parts of salt and coarse black pepper.
4. Fill a plastic mist bottle with equal parts hot sauce and water. For a different flavor, you can use Worcestershire or apple cider. You can also just use water. The function is to help keep surface moisture on the meat during a very long cook time.
5. Place brisket in your smoker with the fat end closest to your fire.
6. The brisket will take between an hour and an hour and a half PER POUND depending on the consistency of your fire. Smoke for 5-6 hours untouched. After that time, begin spritzing the meat every hour to help the brisket stay moist on the outside. Once you are happy with the color and “bark” on the outside, tightly wrap the brisket in butcher paper or aluminum foil and put back in the cooker.
7. If you maintain a steady low temperature, the brisket should be ready after about 12 hours. The meat will be very forgiving and will be noticeably soft. Allow the brisket to rest off the heat (still wrapped) for an hour before serving. Slice against the grain.
