Here are our Favorites

  Some of the best things in life are free.  The HawgFather will share all of his recipe's (with the exception of our proprietary "MAX Q".  This dangerous knowledge is only shared with other HawgFathers.  Based on a southern upbringing with worldwide travels later in life, some of these dishes vary with hints of mild carribean, central american, middle eastern and far east influence.  Back home the HawgFathers are influenced by Momma, Justin Wilson,  and of course Rachael Ray.    

Below are a few tried and tested culinary delights, that always please even with minor modifications.  Feel free to take a little liberty with them and make them your own.

As always, feel free to ask a HawgFather if you have his number.

Everyone's Favorite Corn on the Cob

Take two dozen fresh white ears of corn still in husk. Do not shuck, only trimming excess silk.

Place in a tub basin, sink or cooler covered in water.

Add one tablesooon of salt per gallon of water

Place a heavy pan on top of ears to completely submerge them and soak'em for 1 hour

On a hot grill, directly over the coals, grill till charred on all four sides. Husks will be at least 60% light brown and 30%t black with only about 10% green showing. Reduce heat and continue cooking for an additional 20 minutes (no more charring)

When you are ready to serve have a designated shucker with clean handtowel to shuck for each guest. (They will be extremely hot and all silk will easily be removed) Season with butter and black pepper to taste.
