Pigtail Brands: Big Ed’s Heirloom Barbecue Sauces & Marinades Grilled BBQ Chicken Recipe

What will you need?

-Chicken
-Salt, pepper & garlic powder
-A Bottle or two of Big Ed’s Heirloom BBQ Sauce
-2 to 3 tablespoons of a nice olive oil or vegetable oil. We prefer olive oil.

Directions:

1. Clean & wash the chicken well and pat dry.

2. Season with a generous amount of black pepper, salt & garlic. (Insert spices to your liking here)

3. Place  split chicken in the middle of the grill for about 10- 15 minutes and then move it to the outer edges of the grill for the rest of the time. If you have boneless thighs place those in the center of the grill for 5-8 minutes and then move out to the side. For the drumsticks you will want to put those in the center of the grill for approximately 8-10 minutes.

4. Place a big handful of soaked wood chips with the lid on for about 10 minutes. The key is to put the chips in the center of the grill with the meat surrounding the chips all around the grill.

5. Remove chicken and place in large serving bowl and then pour on Big Ed’s Heirloom BBQ Sauce generously to your liking. We last served about 10 people and poured nearly the whole bottle over the chicken in the serving bowl and a bit more at the dinner table and it was perfect.

6. Enjoy! You can always add more of Big Ed’s during the meal if you like. Most people do this.
You don’t have to use the wood chips if you don’t like. It’s still delicious!

Big Ed’s Heirloom Barbecue Sauces & Marinades Boston Butt Recipe

What will you need?

-A 6 – 8 lb. Boston Butt
-Salt, pepper & garlic powder
-A bottle or two of Big Ed’s Heirloom BBQ Sauce from Pigtail Brands
-2 to 3 tablespoons of a nice olive oil or vegetable oil. We prefer olive oil.

Directions:

1. Rinse off you meat well & pat dry with paper towels. Apply olive oil to the meat  as well as your pan.

2. Place the meat with the fat side facing up in the pan and pour oil over the fat side of the meat & then sprinkle with salt, pepper & garlic powder. Fresh, chopped garlic is also a nice addition. Place pan uncovered into a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees.

3. Bake 40-45 minutes per lb. of meat or your desired doneness which could slightly vary from the aforementioned timing. You want it falling off of the bone and very crisp. The crispness of the skin will give the meat even more flavor. Then pour out your excess grease from the pan and let it cool for 1-2 hours.

4. Chop, pull or shred your meat taking out the excess fat within the meat and then add to taste Big Ed’s Signature Heirloom BBQ Sauce. Be generous with the sauce application.

Big Ed’s Heirloom Barbecue Sauces & Marinades Specialty BBQ Tofu Recipe

What will you need?

-A Bottle or two of Big Ed’s Heirloom BBQ Sauce
-One Block Of Extra Firm Tofu
-Paper Towels

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 365 & drain one block of extra firm tofu while you wait.

2. Slice tofu into about 1/2 inch rectangles. If the slices are too thin they may crumble, however if they are too thick they don’t quite absorb enough sauce. You want it the tofu to absorb the sauce & really keep the flavor.

3. Lay out some paper towels about 2-3 sheets thick on your cutting board or counter, place all of your sliced tofu on top, & then press with more paper towels. You have to gently press all the moisture & water out of the tofu. I have a great dish towel I do this with that the tofu doesn’t stick to but it will cling on to some towels and crumble. If you get most of the moisture out it will absorb more of the BBQ sauce flavor, so taking the time to do this makes a huge difference.

4. Line a baking sheet with nonstick aluminum foil, pour some sauce on & spread it, then lay the tofu on top NOT touching each other. They need some room.

5. Pour plenty of Pigtail Brands Barbecue Sauce on top, about half the bottle, & bake for about 10 minutes. If the sauce looks like it’s drying up, I will turn them over or move them around a little with a spatula and pour almost all the rest on top.

6. Bake about 30 minutes more or less until it is crispy to your liking. I like mine pretty saucy so once it’s crispy I pour the remainder of the bottle on top. You don’t have to use the entire bottle, I once used about 3/4 and it turned out very flavorful.

Not sure how other people eat theirs, but I ALWAYS eat my BBQ tofu on a sandwich with Duke’s real mayonnaise. Coleslaw on top is also a nice addition. Here are a few more recipes around the web for BBQ Tofu.
