What are your favorite BBQ (Smoked - Either hot or low) and non-BBQ things to cook? Things that you really like and cook the most, because you and your family love it that much. Nothing expensive and/or exotic, just what you enjoy cooking on a regular basis.

Mine are -

BBQ - Chicken. Leg quarters. Either separated (leg and thigh) or whole, but sauced. Cheap BBQ sauce, doctored up and made into a thin glaze. I love it and eat it at least once a week. Makes me feel like a 5 year old kid, getting sauce all over me and making a mess Laughing

Non-BBQ - Boils. Some kind of swimming/crawling things (Shrimp, crab, crawfish, etc) with potatoes, sausage, and corn, along with the usual aromatics (onion, garlic, lemon, etc). Fried chicken is a close second place.

So, what's on your menu on a regular basis?

EDIT - What do you cook regularly in the cold months?

BBQ : Beef brisket, although pork ribs have moved up to be second on my list. Steaks & roasted corn on the cob would be my favorite hot & fast thing to cook outdoors.

Non - BBQ : too many things to pick a single favorite.

On a regular basis we grill chicken usually leg quarters they cook fast and are usually pretty cheap. As far as smoking we usually cook pork butts or picnics more than brisket or ribs.

Off topic on a weekly basis I cook stir fried rice along with either pork, beef or chicken Szechuan on Wednesdays. In the winter it is gumbo, gumbo, gumbo. Very Happy
It is just Debbie, myself and our son we all work long hours so quick and easy in the kitchen or grill during the week is important. I do not care for fast food so it rarely reaches my table.

Good point about different seasons and types of foods. In the winter we cook a lot of soups and stews - And of course Gumbo Laughing I make big batches and freeze it in zip-bags and our kids fight over it to take home with them Laughing

I cook a whole lot of Pork Loins on the smoker, I buy them when the price drops to the $1.68 mark, or below if I can find them. I freeze them, thaw them and cook them, then eat them! A whole loin will feed the family for 2 full meals and 4 or 5 snacks, for a couple of us!

I cook chicken nearly every week, I get the 10lb bags of chicken leg quarters, split them into thighs, drumsticks, and backbones for the stock pot. They give 12 - 14 of each and they go for lunches and other chicken dishes.

About every 3 weeks, I'll cook a pair of butts, and about once a month a 3 pack of ribs.

Now that's what I cook if I'm not competing, those weekends I'm competing, I always come home with ribs, butts and at least 1/2 a brisket, (I don't come home with chicken), I donate the chicken extras, to guests, and friends at the competition!

My favorite thing to cook low and slow is pork butts or pork shoulder followed by ribs.

I love to grill hamburgers and polish sausage followed by chicken quarters.

In the winter I alternate between stews and soups. and chili and chicken n dumplings.

My go to Q is chicken and ribs. Quick and easy.

My latest non-Q binge has been pizza. I have a SS plate and hood that I fabbed for my grill and have been cranking out about a half dozen pies a week.

My regular go-to on the weekends isribs. We eat a lot of ribs.

I told my wife I wasn't very good with chicken. She told me to figure it out. So, the last couple of months have had me grilling chicken pieces most every weekend. Last weekend was my first spatchcock chicken, and I did 2 more this weekend.

If the kids and grand kids are here it's burgers, dogs, and brats.

Grilled chicken breasts weekly. Lately been on a grilled chicken sausage and apple kick. Love grilled burgers and grilled pork chops. Mostly though some type of grilled chicken week in and week out. Not sure it's my fav but it is healthy and cheaper than steak, brisket, and fish.

How the heck did I miss this thread?

Wings and cheeseburgers mostly on the grill.

Ribs and chicken on the smoker.

Ribs. And I'm starting to prefer baby backs. Mix of cherry and apple for smoke.

When we do butt, we use hickory.

Love making St. Louis pork steaks. And everyone we ever served them to just gobbles them up.


Then, grilled steaks, boneless rub-marinated chicken breasts, and burgers.

That's on my bucket list of things to learn how to make. This winter I'm gonna do it. Do you have a good recipe to share? I know how to make Cassoulet, and I'm thinking Feijoada is a similar cooking technique?
