The Complete Serious Eats Barbecue & Sauce Style Guide

A few years back, When Pigs Fly columnist James Boo published two separate but equally comprehensive guides—one to American regional barbecue styles, the other to American regional barbecue sauces. Now, to celebrate Barbecue Week, we've combined both posts into one glorious super guide, designed to provide you with the most encyclopedic barbecue coverage possible. More

Braised Bacon with Smoked Paprika Pancakes

If you really think about bacon, it's basically smoked and cured pork belly. And in my mind, pork belly makes for a really excellent braise. It may seem counterintuitive to braise bacon instead of slicing it and serving it crisp, but after trying it on some savory pancakes with a few sliced scallions and some chili sauce, you'll be looking at the brunch staple in a whole new way.

The Food Lab's Complete Guide to Dry-Aging Beef at Home

This guide will show you exactly how to dry-age at home, how relatively simple it is, and how it can vastly improve the eating quality of your steaks and roasts until they are better than what you can buy at even the best gourmet supermarket. And unlike many other places that claim similar results, I actually have the blind taste tests to prove it! More

What To Expect at Franklin Barbecue in Austin (Besides The Finest Barbecue in All The Land)

It was only through your hearty Tweeting that I decided to bite the bullet and jump in line at 9:30AM on overcast Saturday in front of Franklin Barbecue when I was in Austin last week. Man, oh man, am I glad I did. What I found at the end of that line (about 2 1/2 hours later) was nothing short of barbecue nirvana. Sweet, succulent pulled pork. Turkey as moist as a prime rib. Snappy sausage as juicy as you'd like, and brisket that defied everything I ever knew or thought I knew about brisket. I can't tell you with 100% certainty that this is the finest brisket in all the land, but it's certainly the best I've ever had. Better than Black's. Better than Smitty's. More

Spicy Coleslaw from 'Around the Southern Table'

Rebecca Lang's Spicy Coleslaw in Around the Southern Table is not your typical styrofoam cup of mayonnaise with a side of cabbage. Yes, the salad contains a bit of mayo, but the dressing is punched up with a generous pour of buttermilk and intense bursts of horseradish, hot sauce, mustard, and jalapeños. Said dressing clings perfectly to each piece of chopped red and green cabbage, grated carrot, minced red onion, and sliced scallion. More

Roasted Mushrooms with Rosemary and Garlic

Meaty crimini mushrooms are tossed in a simple dressing of red wine vinegar, dijon mustard, olive oil, minced garlic, and chopped rosemary, then placed into a hot oven until tender. As they roast, the spongy mushrooms not only absorb the sharp and herbaceous flavors of the dressing, but their own meaty mushroom flavor intensifies as well. More
