1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    Made this tonight to go with our Boston Butt and I was blown away. I can barely type...

    Cranberry Apple Pie
    1 tbsp Butter
    1/2 tsp grated orange zest (I used Valencia Orange Peel)
    1/2 tsp cinnamon
    1/4 tsp nutmeg
    3 lbs Granny Smith apples (or other tart variety)
    peeled, cored and sliced thin (1/8")
    1 1/2 cups cranberries fresh or frozen
    1 1/4 cup Sugar
    6 tbsp chopped nuts, pecans, walnuts, etc.
    4 tbsp flour

    Preheat to 425°
    In a large bowl, mix melted butter, orange zest, cinammon and nutmeg.
    Mix well with a wooden spoon, then add apple slices, cranberries, sugar, nuts and flour.
    (Thanks for the spoon Ken!)

    Pour mixture into pie crust laid in a well-seasoned and oiled 10" skillet, (I use Coconut Oil and preheat the skillet a bit)
    Pack tightly and mound in the center. Pinch top and bottom crusts together.

    Bake at 425° for 15 minutes, then turn down to 350° until crust is brown.
    Place a pizza pan or tin foil underneath to catch the drippings.
    Remove from oven and call the family to the kitchen to witness the awesomeness.

    Pie Crust:
    2 1/2 cups All-purpose Flour1 tsp salt
    1 tsp sugar
    2 sticks butter, cut into pieces
    1/4 cup Ice Cold water

    Mix flour, salt and sugar in a medium-size bowl.
    Cut 2 sticks butter into pieces. With a pastry blender, cut in butter, working until mixture resembles coarse meal.
    Add 4 tablespoons ice water; work with hands until dough comes together.
    If dough is still crumbly, add more ice water a tablespoon at a time (up to 4 more tablespoons). Do not overwork.
    Divide dough in half, and flatten halves into disks.
    Wrap disks separately in plastic; refrigerate at least 1 hour.
    To form the pie shell, roll half the dough on a floured surface into a 14-inch round. Wrap around rolling pin and carefully unroll over the skillet.
    Fit gently into bottom and side of plate. Trim excess to 1/2" overhang.
    Use same process with top crust.
    Crimp rim with fingertips and knuckle to seal edges.


    Enjoy!

    That's a good way to celebrate living in Texas. Next you will be cooking in a dutch oven in the back yard if you want to inspire envy amongst the neighbors do it in the front yard. Be careful or they will show up for a visit with their own plates and utensils.

    Thanks Jeffro, you should see what I have planned for the backyard...
    Looking for a 4' propane tank endcap as a firepit, similar to the one we used in Georgia Fatwoodsman Meet last year.(skip to 1:44)
    THEN we'll see some outdoor cookin'!
    Oh and the neighbors are all welcome, until the stuffed mushrooms are done, then it's "Everyone Out"
