• Avocado Fries:
  • 1 avocado, sliced into 12 ‘fry’ lengths
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, or as needed
  • Dip:
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon tomatillo salsa
  • 1 dash chili-garlic sauce (such as Sriracha®), or more to taste
  • Add all ingredients to list

Directions :

Preheat grill/oven to 450⁰ F.

Pour flour into a shallow bowl. Pour egg in another shallow bowl. Pour breadcrumbs into a third bowl.

  1. Gently press the avocado slices into flour to coat and shake off any excess flour. Dip into beaten egg and press into bread crumbs. Place breaded avocado slices onto a baking sheet. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over breaded avocado slices.
  2. Bake avocado in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and ‘fries’ are golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir sour cream, garlic powder, tomatillo salsa, and chile-garlic sauce together in a bowl until thoroughly mixed.


4 Yukon gold potatoes, cleaned

2 large cloves of garlic, sliced very thinly (I use a mandolin)

6 tablespoons butter

Fine sea salt

Coarsely-ground black pepper

1/8 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

1/4 cup grated Asiago Fresco cheese

1/4 cup grated aged cheddar cheese

Chopped fresh chives or thinly-sliced green onions



  • Prepare the grill for  indirect grilling at 500ºF. (If you are making the Tomahawk Chops with Grilled Mushrooms and Garlic Scapes, start the potatoes in the grill 30 minutes before starting the chops on the grill.)
  • Slice the potatoes into 1/4-inch thick slices without going all the way through. A good tip is to place old wooden spoons on each side of the potato when slicing to keep the knife from going all the way down to the cutting board.
  • Depending on how many slices of garlic you were able to cut, place a slice of garlic into each slit or every other slit in each of the potatoes.
  • Melt 3 tablespoons of the butter. Brush onto the outsides and into the slits in the potatoes. Season the outside and inside the slits with salt.
  • Place the potatoes directly onto the grill grate (slits-up) in the indirect zone. Close the hood and roast for 45 minutes, rotating every 15 minutes for even cooking.
  • Melt the remaining three tablespoons of butter and brush onto the potatoes. Season them lightly with pepper and sprinkle the cheese on top. Close the grill hood and continue roasting for 10 minutes more.
  • Carefully remove the sliced baked potatoes from the grill and top with fresh chives or green onions.


Salted Caramel

½ cup (1 stick) butter

1 cup Dark Horse Whiskey Smoked Brown Sugar

¼ cup half and half

½ teaspoon Smoked Bourbon Sea Salt



½ cup (1 stick) cold butter cut into small cubes

¾ cup all-purpose flour

¾ cup old fashioned rolled oats

¼ cup Dark Horse Whiskey Smoked Brown Sugar

¼ cup sugar

¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon



3 pounds apples peeled and sliced

Stonewall Kitchen Roasted Apple Grille Sauce

½ cup sugar

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons butter



Preheat grill to 400⁰F.

Salted Caramel:

  • In a large, deep skillet heat butter, brown sugar, and half and half.
  • Cook, stirring occasionally until butter is melted and sugar has dissolved.
  • Bring to a boil and continue to cook and stir for about another 2-3 minutes.
  • Stir in salt. Pour sauce into a bowl and set aside.


  • In a large mixing bowl add butter cubes, flour, oats, sugars, cinnamon and salt.
  • Using an electric mixer, beat until mixture is crumbly.


  • Toss apples with lemon juice. Add sugar, cinnamon and Stonewall Kitchen Roasted Grille Sauce and toss to coat.
  • In a large skillet melt butter. Add apples and cook, stirring occasionally until just tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
  • Reserve ¼ cup of caramel sauce. Pour the remaining caramel sauce on top of apples. -Evenly sprinkle with crumb mixture.
  • Bake for about 20 minutes until hot and bubbly. Serve with vanilla ice cream and drizzle with reserved caramel sauce.


2 sweet potatoes

2 tablespoons olive oil

¼ Bourbon Smoked Sea Salt


Directions :

Preheat grill to 250⁰F.

  • Rinse and dry your sweet potatoes thoroughly and slice them as uniformly thin as possible. Chips that are too thick in parts won’t crisp up all the way.
  • Toss slices in a touch of olive oil to lightly coat, then sprinkle with salt.
  • Lay out in a single layer on a baking sheet and bake for 2 hours, flipping chips once at halfway point to ensure even cooking. You may also want to rotate pan for more even cooking (optional but recommended).
  • Remove once crisp and golden brown. Some may feel tender in the middle but take them out and let rest for 10 minutes or so to crisp up. Serve immediately.

“These kabobs are tender, sweet, and delicious. They’re easy to make and only require a few ingredients.”

+ 1 tablespoon sesame oil
+ 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
+ 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
+ 8 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves – cut into 2 inch pieces

Fact: If there’s one way to instantly up your burger game and join the big leagues, it’s to grind your own meat. It offers superior texture with more loosely packed patties and a more open, juice-trapping structure.

Note: For better flavor, use a combination of short rib, brisket, and sirloin in place of the ground chuck.


+ 1 1/2 Pounds Beef Chuck, cut into 1-inch Cubes (see note above)
+ Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper
+ 4 Slices of Cheese
+ 4 Hamburger Buns
+ Toppings as Desired

(Try with: Stonewall Kitchen Bourbon Molasses Mustard or Urban Accent’s Jalapeño Popper Burger Blend)


1. To grind with a meat grinder: Place grinding shaft, feed tube, plate, die, and screw of a meat grinder into the freezer. Spread beef chunks evenly in a single layer on a large plate or rimmed baking sheet. Place in freezer and freeze until starting to get firm around edges but still malleable, about 20 minutes. Set up meat grinder with 3/8ths inch plate. Grind meat into a cold bowl. Working quickly, grind meat again using 1/4-inch plate. If grinder or meat begins to get too warm during grinding process, return to freezer for 10 minutes before continuing to grind.

2. To grind with a food processor: Spread beef chunks evenly in a single layer on a large plate or rimmed baking sheet. Place in freezer and freeze until starting to get firm around edges but still malleable, about 20 minutes. Working in three batches, place meat cubes in the work bowl of a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped, about 15 to 20 short pulses. Transfer to a bowl and repeat with remaining beef.

3. Form beef into four patties about 1/2-inch wider than the burger buns with a slight depression in the center to account for bulging as they cook. Season generously with salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to cook.

4. Light one chimney full of charcoal. When all the charcoal is lit and covered with gray ash, spread evenly over one side of coal grate. Alternatively, set half the burners of a gas grill to high heat. Set cooking grate in place, cover gill and allow to preheat for 5 minutes. Clean and oil the grilling grate.

5. Place burgers directly over hot coals, cover with vents open, and cook, turning occasionally, until well charred and center of burgers register 110°F on an instant read thermometer, about 5 minutes. Place cheese on top of burgers and continue to cook until cheese is melted and burgers register 125°F for medium rare or 135°F for medium, 1 to 2 minutes longer. Transfer burgers to a large plate.

6. Toast buns over center of grill until golden brown and warmed through. Top burgers as desired, place in buns, and serve. (1)
