I have never been a fan of ham. Spiral-sliced, country-style, Black Forest,...doesn't much matter. My take away is almost always . Being the type that always likes to DIY, I tinkered with my version of ham until it came out positively addictive
I have a love-hate relationship with BBQ. I know, un-American, but that's how it is. While I love to smoke fresh, brined meat at home, I often find the combo of heavy smoke and sticky sauce unpalatable. Balanced, this one hits right down the middle.
Tomatillos, tomatillos, tomatillos. They are EVERYWHERE and still coming on strong. I wanted something new, besides my ubiquitous salsa verde. Add in some Bulgarian carrot chiles, and this smokin' sauce is what came out.
