Tri Tip with Deep Fried Brussels Sprouts

Tri Tip with Deep Fried Brussels Sprouts

  Ok. There is nothing better than deep fried Brussels sprouts, other than serving them with a good tri trip. Their natural sweet flavor seems to be brought out more when they are deep fried. They require no other prep other than to cut them in half (or keep them whole if you want). By the time the outside is browned, the inside is crisp-tender. While your next main course is on the bbq, try fixing these in the deep fryer to go along with it.

Add in your Brussels sprouts in batches, and remember not to overcrowd them in the oil. Deep fry until they are toasty brown on the outside. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels for draining, and repeat until you are done. Season with salt and pepper, and serve. Notes Fried brussels sprouts on their own are equally nice served with some freshly made garlic aioli.

Mesquite Wood

Mesquite Wood

Mesquite wood is closely related to Texas BBQ, and a popular hardwood to many industries. It is either native or introduced to much of the U.S. The wood burns hot and produces a strongly flavored smoke that is often paired with another wood. When used in barbecue it is more of a flavoring wood than a main smoking wood. Types of foods that go well with mesquite: Beef and pork – the smoke is too strong to be used with poultry and seafood, although if it is used in conjunction with another wood mesquite does give other foods a very delicious flavor. Mesquite Classifications and Types The mesquite tree is in the legume family (Prosopis genus). Its flowers attract honey bees which in turn make a very fragrant and unique tasting honey. The protein and carbohydrate-rich bean pods produced by the mesquite trees are used by animals and humans as a food source. The mesquite tree is very drought tolerant with deep taproots that go extend far below the ground in search of water. It is a common tree in the Southwest. The mesquite tree improves the nitrogen in the soil and produces a showy foliage. The limbs provide shelter to wild animals. It produces a beautiful and decorative hardwood for woodworkers and furniture makers. But despite all of its positives, mesquite can be hard to control once established. According to the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service, most varieties of mesquite are an invasive species or a noxious weed. Honey Mesquite – Prosopis glandulosa The honey mesquite is also known as the Western honey mesquite. It is a thorny, brushy tree with sweet seedpods liked by livestock. The yellow flowers, that bloom from February...
