HOT PEPPER BACON GLAZED SHORT RIBSIngredients:
Terrapin Ridge Farms’ Hot Pepper Bacon Grill & Wing Squeeze
6 pounds bone-in, English-cut short ribs,sectioned into 2-to 3-rib pieces and excess fat remove
1 Tablespoon dry mustard
1 Tablespoon paprika
Kosher salt and pepper
3⁄4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Oil for the grill
1) In a small bowl, mix the spices with 1 1⁄2 tablespoons of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. Generously season the ribs all over with spice rub. Let sit at room temperature for 1 hour.
2) Preheat the oven to 300°F. Transfer the ribs to a 9-by-13-inch baking dish meat side up—they should fit snugly. Cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake until tender but not falling apart, 2 to 3 hours. Keep covered with foil and let rest for at least 1 hour. At this point, the ribs can be refrigerated if you’re making them in advance.
3) Heat a grill to HIGH (450°F) and oil the grate.
4) Grill the short ribs, basting with the Hot Pepper Bacon Jam Grill & Wing Squeeze and turning frequently, until lacquered and charred in places and heated through, 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for at least 10 minutes. Cut between the ribs to separate. Transfer to a platter and serve with any remaining sauce, mac-and-cheese, coleslaw, rolls, and pickles, if desired.
DOUBLE SMASH BURGER WITH BALSAMIC ONION JAM
- 1/2 cup Terrapin Ridge Farms’ Balsamic Onion Jam
- 4 squishy buns (preferably potato or brioche)—split, buttered, and toasted
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise or Terrapin Ridge Farms’ Everything Aioli
- Iceberg lettuce and dill pickle chips, for topping
- 11⁄2 pounds ground beef (preferably 75/25), divided into eight 3-ounce balls
- Kosher salt and pepper
- 8 slices American cheese, or choice of cheese
1) These burgers cook quickly, so make sure your buns are toasted and ready to go. Smear some mayo on each toasted bottom bun and top with iceberg lettuce and a few pickle chips. Set aside.
2) Preheat a large dry stainless steel skillet or flat top over high heat for 2 minutes.
3) Working in batches, place two balls of ground beef in the skillet and press firmly with the bottom of a saucepan or a large heavy spatula until they are very thin and slightly wider than your bun. Season generously with salt and pepper. Be careful not to crowd the pan.
4) Cook the patties until they are well browned, about 1 minute. Using a bench scraper or a heavy metal spatula, carefully scrape the patties from the pan, making sure to get all of the browned bits.
5) Flip and immediately top each patty with a slice of cheese and stack one patty on top of the other. Transfer to a large plate and cover loosely with foil. Keep warm while you prepare the other burgers.

GRILLED LAMB KEBABS WITH COCONUT CURRY AIOLI

- ⅓ cup Terrapin Ridge Farms Coconut Curry Aioli, plus more for drizzling
- Kosher salt and pepper
- Canola oil for greasing
1 large red onion cut into 8 wedges through the root
4 naan or pita
Sliced tomatoes, Persian cucumber, and tender green herb, (mint, dill, or parsley) for serving
1) In a large resealable plastic bag, coat the lamb with the ⅓ cup of aioli. Season with salt and pepper. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to overnight. Let sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking.
2) If using wooden skewers, submerge them in water in a large baking dish. Let soak for at least 1 hour; drain. Thread the lamb onto 6 to 8 skewers, giving your meat a little space so it browns evenly.
3) Preheat a grill to medium-high (350-400°F), indirect cooking (for a charcoal grill, bank coals on one side of grill; for a gas grill, leave one or two burners off) and oil the grate. Grill the skewers over direct heat, turning every minute or so, until browned and beginning to char in spots, about 4 minutes. Move to the cooler side of the grill and continue to grill until the lamb is medium-rare within, about 4 minutes more. Meanwhile, grill the red onion, turning occasionally, until tender and nicely charred, about 10minutes.Transfer the lamb skewers and red onion to a platter and cover with foil. Grill the naan until beginning to char and is soft and pliable, 2 to 3 minutes.
4) Arrange the skewers, naan, and red onion on a large platter. Drizzle the lamb with more Coconut Curry Aioli.
5) Add sliced tomato, Persian cucumber, herbs, and lemon wedges to the platter. Season the tomatoes and cucumbers with salt and pepper. Serve right away, letting people assemble their own wraps.
1) Set smoker or grill to 225 degrees F.
2) Open up the cream cheese and set on a greased grill safe pan or cast iron skillet.
5) Once the cream cheee is finished smoking, remove from the smoker or grill and let cool for 10 minutes.
