Crispy Fried Pickles

This tasty dish was born in Arkansas and could be the tastiest pickle you’ll ever be in…with ranch as a dipping sauce.

Crispy fried pickles made with sliced dill pickles breaded in seasoned flour and fried crispy are a perfect side dish to add to your BBQ!

  • Pickles
  • 12-15 sandwich sliced dill pickles
  • 1-2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
  • Oil for frying
  • Batter
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill (optional)
In a dutch oven, preheat oil to 360-370 degrees F. Combine all batter ingredients and stir until smooth, let sit for at least 5 minutes. Dab pickle slices on paper towels to dry them. Place about 1/2 cup Panko breadcrumbs in a bowl (add more as needed). If they get wet, they don't stick so its best to work in small batches. Dip each pickle slice in the wet batter and then gently toss in the breadcrumbs, let sit for a minute or so, this will allow the crumbs to stick better. Fry in small batches for 3-4 minutes or until brown and crispy. Serve with ranch or your favorite dip.

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Awe Shucks! Want to know Iowa’s secret grilled corn recipe? Here’s a hint—butter, butter, and more butter.

How to grill juicy, tender, grilled corn-on-the-cob, it's EASY! Grilled corn is one of the best things about summer. This recipe will guide you through how to perfectly grill corn!

  • Fresh corn on the cob
  • Butter, for serving
  • Salt, for serving
Preheat pellet grill to high heat setting. The corn husks will protect the corn from burning or drying out while it is on the hot grill. If you like char on your corn, peel off a few of hte outher layers of the corn husks before grilling. Using scissors, cut the tops off of each cob and trim any loose husk leaves. Place the corn in their husks on the hot grill and close the lid. Cook until the husks are charred on all sides, turning every 10 minutes. Depending on how hot your grill is running, it will take around 20-45 minutes. Remove the corn from the grill. Let them sit for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Remove the silks and charred husks from the corn. Corn on the cob done this way is delicious without anything on it. If desired, you can smother with butter and sprinkle with salt.

Deep Dish Pizza

The Windy City is known for many things, but Chicago-style Deep Dish just might be our favorite.

This deep-dish pizza is an all-time classic. Loaded with delicious toppings and cheese and cooked in a cast iron skillet for a perfect, crispy crust.

  • Crust
  • 1 cup plus 2 Tablespoons warm water
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons Kosher salt
  • 2 3/4 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons peanut or vegetable oil
  • 4 Tablespoons melted butter
  • 3 Tablespoons yellow cornmeal
  • 4 cups all purpose flour
  • Sauce
  • 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
  • 8 oz can tomato paste
  • 2 Tablespoons Kosher salt
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar
  • 4 Tablespoons fresh oregano, minced
  • Toppings
  • Fresh Mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1 lb Italian sausage, cooked
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 cup Parmesan or asiago cheese, grated
  • Olive oil to drizzle on top
For the crust: Pour the warm water into a medium sized bowl, then add the next 6 ingredients and stir. Add 2 cups of the all-purpose flour and stir well. Incorporate the rest of the flour and knead with hands until you have a smooth dough. Leave dough in the bowl and cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Let rise for about 60 minutes until dough had doubled in size. While dough is rising get your 14” skillet or three 8” skillets ready, by spraying them with non-stick cooking spray and then covering the bottom with a thin layer of olive oil. Sprinkle some flour on a smooth surface, then put the dough in the center. Using a rolling pin roll the dough out into a large circle to fit the 14” skillet. If making three 8” skillets divide the dough into thirds and make each into a ball, then roll out into circles. Lay the dough in the bottom of your skillet with the dough coming up the sides of the pan. Cover and let rest for 15 minutes. Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees or turn the pellet grill on high. After 15 minutes you can stretch your dough, if necessary, to come up the sides of your pan. Let rest for 15 more minutes. Bake the crust for 10-15 minutes, until it is set and beginning to brown a bit. Pull crust out and put the toppings on. Start with covering the bottom with the mozzarella cheese, then the sausage, pepper, and onion. Pour the sauce over the top and cover with lots of parmesan or asiago cheese. Drizzle everything with a bit of olive oil. Bake for about 25 minutes, until filling is bubbly and the cheese is golden brown. Remove the pizza from the oven. Using a spatula, carefully lift pizza out of the skillet and onto a cooling rack. Let rest for about 15 minutes, to set up, before cutting. I like to wipe the skillet out and put the pizza back in it to cut and serve, especially if using the 8” skillets.

Put the whole, unpeeled potatoes in a pot and cover with cold water by 2 inches. Bring to a boil and simmer gently until a fork goes through the potatoes with little resistance, about 40 minutes. Cut the potatoes into smaller chunks and press through ricer. If you don't have a ricer, peel the potatoes and mash with a fork or masher. Measure out 4 loosely packed cups of riced potatoes and put in a large bowl. Heat the heavy cream, butter, sugar and salt in a small pot until the butter melts. Add the butter/cream mixture to the potatoes and mix gently. Put the mashed potatoes in the refrigerator to cool down, about 30 minutes. Once cooled completely, add the flour and work it gently into the potatoes. Do not overwork the dough. Allow to rest at room temperature for 10 minutes. Take 2 tablespoons of dough and form it into a ball. Sprinkle flour on a sheet of parchment or wax paper. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough into a very thin circle about 1/16 inch thick and seven inches wide. Flour the dough as necessary to avoid sticking. Heat large cast iron skillet or griddle with the burner on medium heat. Turn the parchment or wax paper upside down and gently peel off the thin circle of dough onto your hand. Place the dough directly in the heated skillet or on the heated griddle. Cook on one side until some brown speckles start to form, about 1 minute, and the flip the dough and cook for an additional 30 seconds. Transfer lefse to a plate and keep covered with a clean kitchen towel. Repeat with the remaining dough. To serve, spread butter and sprinkle sugar on a warm lefse and roll it up. If the lefse is cold, you can warm it up quickly in a heated skillet.

New York claims to be the home of the original Buffalo Chicken Wings, so naturally we turned to them for America’s favorite bar food.

The best buffalo chicken wing recipe you’ll ever try! Hot and spicy, these will become one of your favorite wing recipes!

  • 5 lbs chicken wings
  • 2 cups Frank's hot sauce
  • 1 cup butter
  • Stalks of celery, cut into celery sticks
  • Blue cheese dressing for dipping*
  • Canola or peanut oil for frying
Turn pellet grill to high smoke and preheat grill. Place wings on rack and smoke until internal temperature reaches around 115 degrees F. About 30-45 minutes. In a small sauce pan, heat hot sauce over medium heat. Combine with butter and slowly stir until butter is completely melted. Continue stirring until butter and sauce are evenly mixed. For hotter sauce, use less butter. Set aside and let cool. When wings are close to temperature, fill Dutch oven about a third or half full with oil. Do not fill more than halfway. Heat oil to 375 degrees F. When wings have reached 115 degrees F., carefully remove wings from smoker and place in Dutch oven with hot oil. Fry until crispy golden brown and internal temperature of the wings reaches 165 degrees F. In a large bowl, toss wings with sauce until completely covered. Serve with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing on the side. *Try our Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing Recipe

Marionberry Pie

The Marionberry is a cross between two different blackberries, check out Oregon’s official state pie.

The best Marionberry pie ever! Butter crust, loads of Marionberries, spiced with a little lemon, cinnamon, and almond extract. Yum!

  • Pie dough for top and bottom crust
  • 5-6 cups Marionberries, rinsed and patted dry (If you use frozen, defrost and drain them)
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cups sugar (depending on how sweet your berries are)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 to 4 Tablespoons quick cooking instant tapioca, flour or cornstarch (use 3 Tablespoons if making the pie with wild picked berries, 4 Tablespoons if making pie with store bought very ripe berries)
Place berries, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, cinnamon, almond extract, and quick cooking instant tapioca in a large bowl. Gently fold the berries until they are well coated with sugar. Let sit for 30 minutes. Preheat pellet grill or pizza oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out one of the balls of pie dough, between two pieces of plastic wrap to 12 inch diameter to fit into a 9-inch cast iron pie pan. Line the bottom of your pie pan with the dough. Roll out the second ball of pie dough for the top crust. Spoon the berry mixture into the dough lined pie pan. Place the second rolled out pie dough crust on top of the berries. Fold the top edge under the bottom crust and use your fingers to crimp to seal the edges. Score the top with a sharp knife to create air vents for the steam to escape. Place the pie on the lowest rack of the jerky racks, so it is just above the bottom rack of the pellet grill. If using the SG model pellet grill, place pie on top shelf. If using the pizza oven, you may want to use a cookie sheet turned upside down so the pie is off of the hot stone a bit. Bake the pie in two stages. First bake the pie at 400 degrees F. for 30 minutes. Then place a sheet of aluminum foil over the edges to keep it from getting too brown. Reduce the heat to 350 degrees F and bake for an additional 30 minutes until crust has browned and filling is bubbly. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack. Cool completely before serving.
