ALTON BROWN CHATEAUBRIAND

Coat tenderloin with:

1 t. cumin

1 ½ t, Kosher salt

1 t. pepper

Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Bring to room temperature before cooking.

Brown the outside of the beef, in hot skillet or charcoal grill, turning to get all sides,
 then let it rest for 15 minutes.

Put in 250 degree oven until meat is 135 degrees, or cook on charcoal grill over indirect heat. Wrap in foil and let rest 30 minutes.

PRIME RIB ROAST

Unwrap meat and dry age on rack in refrigerate for 3 to 7 days. I usually cover with a towel. Set out of refrigerator and let it warm up 1 hour before cooking. After seasoning, cook uncovered at 325 degrees for 15 minutes per pound. Internal temp should be 130 degrees for medium rare. Then let rest for 20 minutes to one hour.

Seasoning options:

1)      Oil lightly and use Kosher salt and black pepper.

2)      Season with crushed bay leaves, 3 leaves per 6 pounds, onion salt, celery salt, garlic salt, and pepper.

3)      For 16 pound roast- salt and pepper and then cover with this paste – 2 sticks butter, 1 head garlic, 1 cup prepared horseradish, 3/8 cup thyme, 3 Tbs rosemary, 3Tbs sage.

JOHN'S COFFEE CRUSTED STEAK (OR PRIME RIB, or TENDERLOIN)

1)      Coarsely grind 2 parts coffee beans/1 part peppercorns.

2)      Rub into steak and roast before cooking.

JOHN'S BBQ RIBS

Can use Baby Back or Spare Ribs. Baby Back are trendy and delicious, spareribs are meatier and much cheaper.

1)      Pull off the membrane covering the bone side of the slab. I use a paper towel to grip the membrane.

2)      Sprinkle the slab liberally on both sides with a dry rub, I use Head Country brand. Rub the seasoning in to the meat. Let it set for an hour or more. You may want to wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

3)      Place over indirect heat bone side down and do not turn. Close the lid to the smoker and place wet wood chunks on the charcoal to produce the smoke.

4)      Depending on how hot the fire is it will take approximately 45 minutes for babyback ribs and 90 minutes for the spareribs.

5)      Tent loosely with foil and let sit at least 15 minutes after taking from the fire.

JOHN'S PULLED PORK

You can use either bone-in or boneless pork butt ( really pork shoulder). I prefer bone-in.

Rub generously with a barbeque rub, I use Head Country, and let it set for at least an hour.

I then cook over indirect heat on the smoker. The first hour I place the meat on the grill and add wood chips for smoke. I then place it in a foil pan and cover tightly with foil and cook over low heat for 4 or 5 more hours.

The pan will be ½ full of liquid when the meat is fully cooked. Let it rest for 20 minutes then pull (shred) the meat while it is still warm.

I sometimes cook 4 or 5 butts, 40 pounds, at the same time for parties.

Combine the chicken with enough dressing to moisten well. Add the celery, scallions, and raisins, and mix well. Refrigerate for a few hours to allow the flavors to blend. Add the cashews and serve at room temperature.

From Food Network.com  Barefoot Contessa

From Mona: Substitute grapes for raisins and less celery. Also this made about twice too much dressing.

JOHN'S TURKEY , CHICKEN OR PORK LOIN BRINE

Brine Instructions for turkey, chicken, or pork loin. This will definitely increase the juices of the meat. I use this when grilling or roasting chickens.

Mix up enough solution to cover meat and refrigerate while brining.

1 cup salt per 1 gallon water for 4 hours, or ½ cup salt per 1 gallon water for overnight soak. If using Morton Kosher salt use 1 ½ times as much as regular salt.

You can add ½ as much sugar as the salt to get a slightly sweet taste.

You can substitute apple juice for ½ the water and add brown sugar and cloves for seasoning. When I have used this with turkey it has tended to get too brown.
