Bacon Burnt Ends with Heim Barbecue

In this Meat the Masters series I have convinced my friend in the BBQ world to share some of their best kept secrets with you guys. In this episode, my buddy Travis Heim who created Bacon Burnt Ends, shows you step by step how to recreate these tasty nuggets that started the whole pork belly burnt craze.


I cook hamburgers all sorts of different ways, but a smash burger is probably my favorite burger. The simplicity of this technique allows the beef and the crust you get from the griddle to shine.

Grilled Steak over a Live Fire + Roasted Potatoes

Grilling a steak over an open fire is at the core of cooking. There is something about the primal nature of this method that gets the blood pumping. Whether you call this an open fire steak or a camp fire steak, we can all agree to call this delicious.

BBQ Fried Rice

When I'm not eating BBQ, I'm eating Asian fried. So why not combine my two favorite foods?

Mexican Pulled Pork

I grew up on pulled pork with a sweet flavor profile. Sweet seems to be the go to  when folks make it. I'm here to tell you that a savory profile is a great change of pace that I absolutely love. This Mexican Pulled Pork makes amazing tacos!

Whole Pork Loin

A whole pork loin is incredibly versatile piece of meat such as the smaller pork tenderloin. I love it for a lot of reasons. It's affordable, you can take the flavor profile in so many different directions and it feeds a ton of people. It has a lot of latitude in how you prepare and cook it.

Cast Iron Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts are the #1 vegetable I would not eat as a kid. Now, I have to make these cast iron brussels sprouts for Mrs. Meat Church at least once per week!

Brisket Chili

Brisket Chili is one of our favorite colder comfort weather foods. What is more Texan than putting brisket in our chili? That answer is probably not much!

Bacon Brisket with Dayne Weaver of Dayne's Craft Barbecue

This recipe and video are part of our Guest Pitmaster Playlist on YouTube. I'm fortunate enough to have many great friendships in the BBQ world. From time to time my friends are willing to make videos with me and allow us to share the recipe. Dayne Weaver, owner & pitmaster at Dayne's Craft Barbecue is on the coveted Texas Monthly Top 50 BBQ Joint list. Dayne, his wife Ashley and their team, make some of the most beautiful BBQ platters you have ever seen (scroll to the bottom of this recipe to see for yourself). On a recent visit to their BBQ joint at Lola's Trailer Park in Fort Worth I was treated with their "Bacon Brisket." It's technically pork belly that is treated like a brisket, but no one is going to argue with the name Bacon Brisket when it tastes this good! Be sure to check out the awesome video with Dayne that we shot on this cook. 

Smoked Fried Turkey

Smo Fried Turkey. Or is it Smoke Fried Turkey or Smokafried Turkey? I thought if smoking meats is my thing, but fried turkeys are my favorite, why not combine the two methods to make the best turkey ever?

Spatchcock Turkey with Alabama White Sauce

A spatchcock turkey is a great way to prepare a turkey, because it cooks more evenly than a traditional whole turkey plus it presents beautifully! We are going to kick this turkey up a notch with this optional Alabama White Sauce, and trust us, it is so SO GOOD!

Smoked Turkey, Stuffing & Gravy

This is my butter basted, smoked turkey recipe plus an adaptation of my friend Amanda Haas's sausage stuffing plus my smoked turkey gravy which is UNREAL!
