Blackened Pot Roast

1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
3 tsp Paul Prudhomme's blackened steak magic

Mix these dry ingredients together. Sprinkle the mixture onto a 2-3 lb roast and rub in.

Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a dutch over. Sear (blacken) the roast on both sides. This will make quite a bit of smoke, so be prepared for it.

When roast has been seared, add at least 2 cups of water (I add 3 'cause I like lots of gravy) to the dutch oven and one diced medium-large onion. Allow this to come to a boil, reduce heat to maintain slow boil and cook for 90 minutes. Add quartered potatoes, baby carrots and about one rib of celery (optional). Salt and pepper to taste. I usually add about 2 tsp of salt myself, but my wife is never satisfied with this so she adds more at the table. Potatoes take lots of salt. Cook for 60 additional minutes.

1 cup sour cream

Melt butter, combine all ingredients and pour into greased SMALL CUP muffin pan. Bake 20 min @ 400.

You can add a little cayenne pepper to "kick" them up a little if you wish.

Using the Large muffin pan will not allow the center to get done.

"Twice" Baked Squash

6 whole squash
1 can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 cup grated cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs
salt and pepper to taste

Boil squash whole until just before done. Need to be tender but not overcooked. Shock them with ice and ice water to prevent additional cooking, while they cool.

Once cool, cut in half, long ways. Scoop pulp from squash with a spoon, reserve pulp.

In a bowl, combine about half of the pulp and all other ingredients. Mix with spoon, if too soupy, add more bread crumbs. Spoon back into squash "hulls".

Bake 15-20 min @ 350 or until desired brownness.

Here you go Delton.

Venison Poppers

2 venison backstraps cut into butterflied medallions (each back strap should yield between 6 and 12 medallions)
Italian salad dressing
Cane syrup
Fresh jalapeno peppers (1 for each 2 venison medallions)
Cream cheese

Marinade venison medallions in mixture of 3 parts Italian dressing and 1 part cane syrup for 1 to 3 days. If meat can not be marinated for that long, tenderizing with a meat mallet will help. Remove stems from jalapenos and split in half lengthwise. Remove seeds and veins. Fill jalapeno cavity with cream cheese and fold venison medallion around jalapeno. Wrap entire popper with a strip of bacon and secure with a tooth pick. Grill over medium heat to until medium done. Venison can be substituted with wild turkey, chicken, shrimp, duck, etc. and cooked appropriately.

Brunswick Stew

3 - Whole Chickens
2 - Boston Butts, appx. 5 lbs. each
1 lb. - Ground Chuck
3 Gal. or #10 can - Diced Tomatoes
1-1/2 Gal. - Whole Kernal Corn White &
Yellow mixed
1/2 Cup - Apple Cider Vinager
2 to 3 Vidalia Onions chopped (Optional)
Worcestershire Sauce - To Taste
Cayene Pepper - To Taste
Salt - To Taste
Black Pepper - To Taste

Place all meat whole in large stock pot and completely cover with water. Bring meat to a boil on high then turn down to a simmer for appx. 2 hours or until meat is done.

Note: The lower the heat and the longer it cooks the better.

Once the meat is done, strain the stock and set it aside for use later. Let the meat cool and once the meat has cooled enough to handle, de-bone it. Run all meat corn and tomatoes through a grinder twice. Once the grinding has been completed combine the ingredients back into the pot including the apple cider vinager. Add the reserved stock as required for the consistency wanted. Add Worcestershire sauce, salt, black pepper and cayene pepper to taste. Mixture should then be stirred constantly on very low heat for appx. 1 hour prior to serving.

Aunt Mott and Uncle Curtis' Pickled Onion's and Cucumbers

1 gallon of sliced cucumbers
7 large onions sliced
5 cups of sugar
3 cups of vinegar
2 cups of water
1 1/2 teaspoon of Tumeric
1 1/2 teaspoon of Mustard seed
1 teaspoon of celery seed

Set aside onions and cucumbers, while mixing all other ingredients. Bring to a boil, and then add onions and cucumbers, boil only for another 1-2 minutes and then pull.

The longer you boil the onions and cucumbers, the mushier they'll get. I like them to have a snap to them, so we don't boil them that long.

Put in clean quart-sized jars and turn upside down for about 5 minutes, turn over and count the lids popping.

Baked Beans with a Kick

Fry up 1lb of bacon, drain and sit aside.
Fry up 1lb of ground beef or deer drain and sit aside. While browning the beef, add onion/garlic salt to taste, and black pepper.
In just a tad of left over grease, sautee' up one diced onion and one diced bell pepper.
Add bacon and beef, and stir in one large can of crushed pineapple -- drained.
Add 1 large can of Bush's Baked Beans.
To taste, add Hot sauce of your choice.
1-2 tablespoons of brown sugar.
1-2 circles around the pan with some cane syrup.
If you like it hot, like I do, add a dash or two of cheyenne pepper.

Once done, let simmer until thick.

1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Paprika
3 Tablespoons Black Pepper
4 Tablespoons Salt
2 Teaspoons Garlic Powder
2 Teaspoons Onion Powder
2 Teaspoons Celery Seeds
1 Teaspoon Cayenne Pepper

Thoroughly mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container. Should keep for around 6 months.

Lee's Deer Rollups

1 pack deer cube steak
1 onion (any kind) cut into slivers about 1.5" long and .25-.5"wide
1 bellpepper (any kind) cut into slivers about 1.5" long and .25-.5"wide
1 box of cream cheese
1 pack of bacon
Jack Daniels mesquite or other favorite marinade

Night or morning before
Marinate the deer cube steak in your favorite marinade.

Heat up your grill to medium high. Lay out 2 cutting boards or 1 big one. This will be your assembly line. Cut the strips of bacon in half and put at one end of the board. Take 1 strip of bacon and lay 1 strip of cube steak lengthwise on the bacon. Stack a piece of cream cheese about the size of half your thumb on top of the cube steak. Press one sliver of onion on top of the cream cheese and one sliver of bellpepper on top of the onion. Roll this up in the cube steak then roll the strip of bacon around that and secure it with a toothpick (trying to get the toothpick through the onion and bellpepper also). Grill for 15-20 minutes, or until the meat is cooked through, turning often to try and keep the bacon from burning too much.
