Francis Patrick's Chocolate Stout Cake Recipe!
Dedicated to my son, Francis Patrick.

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/3 cup stout
1 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup buttermilk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and place rack in middle of oven. Grease and lightly flour 9-inch cake pan.

In a small saucepan, combine cocoa powder and stout and heat over low-moderate heat until smooth. Set aside to cool.

In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In a large bowl with an electric mixer on low-medium speed, beat butter until creamy. Gradually add sugar and beat until pale yellow in color. Beat in eggs, one at a time, and vanilla.

Stir buttermilk into cooled cocoa and stout mixture.

With the mixer on low, slowly add one-third of buttermilk mixture into creamed butter until incorporated. Add the flour mixture in three parts, alternating with the remaining two parts of the buttermilk and ending with the flour. Batter will look grainy or appear to be breaking up.

Pour batter into cake pan and bake for 25 to 35 minutes or until the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean. Remove to wire rack with parchment or waxed paper beneath it. Allow cake to cool in pan for 10 minutes, then slide knife around the edge of pan and invert to release cake, bottom side up, onto wire rack. When cool, use a fork to poke holes generously into bottom side of cake.

Makes one 9-inch cake.

You can find our videos on Google too - just search for BBQ Bob. smiley

Someone wrote in and said they would prefer more audio to video since many people don't have video ipods...
I spoke with Bob and he thought maybe we should only do 2 vidcasts per month - the rest being audio. What do YOU think?
Miss Claudia

Sorry it's taken me so long, folks, to get this show up. Hope you enjoy it. I was surprised to learn how many people don't know what sugar plums are! This is a centuries old recipe and a very traditional one. Remember Bob's buzzword for Christmas and holidays - TRADITION.
If you don't have any, start makin' 'em. It's never too late!

2 cups whole almonds
2 tsp Myers's Dark Rum
1/4 cup honey
2 tsp grated orange zest
1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1 cup finely chopped dried apricots
1 cup finely chopped pitted dates
1 cup confectioners' sugar

Preheat oven to 400. Arrange almonds on a baking sheet in a single layer and toast in oven for ten minutes. Set aside to cool and then finely chop. Meanwhile, combine the rum, honey, orange zest, cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg in a medium mixing bowl. Add almonds, apricots, and dates and mix well. Pinch off rounded teaspoon sized pieces of the mixture and roll into balls. Roll balls in sugar and refrigerate in single layers between sheets of wax paper in airtight containers for up to one month.

God Bless!

Our final show on cooking Thanksgiving Turkeys.

I love fried turkey - so does Miss Claudia and the kids - BUT the only downside according to Miss Claudia is that you really miss out on the smell of turkey cookin' in the oven.
It's deelicious though to be sure!

Stay tuned - next show is how to smoke a turkey! Another great recipe for ya comin' up soon!

This shark recipe has a little bite - no pun intended. To add even more increase the amount of red pepper and add 1-2 t cayenne pepper.

Lemon Sauce/Marinade
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice (2 Lemons)
2T parsley minced
2T Cilantro minced

2T cocktail sauce
2T soy sauce
1 1/2 T sugar
5 cloves garlic pressed
1t ground black pepper
1t crushed red pepper

Four 8 oz. shark filet steaks ( I prefer Mako if available)

Combine the marinade ingredients, mix well. Rinse fish with cold running water, dry with paper towel.
Put steaks in a zip lock bag and pour marinade over them, seal, shake and coat evenly, let filets marinate 2 hours in the refer.

Prepare Medium hot fire on the grill.

Remove shark and pour marinade into a sauce pan, boil, reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half. About 10 minutes.

Place shark directly over coals 7-9 minutes a side, until fish flakes easily.

Spoon the reserved marinade over the shark and serve.

BBQ Bob and Miss Catie (his daughter) carve pumpkins with his famous yearly pumpkin featured at the end. He always blows everyone away with his pumpkin works of art!

BBQ Bob Brews Billy Goat Bartman's Bock!

Miss Claudia has demanded that I do something to lift "da curse" off the Chicago Cubs. No World Series Victory since 1908 and not even an appearance in the Fall Classic since 1945!

Something needs to be done - and I'm just the one to do it and NOW is the perfect time!

Miss Claudia asks you to please brew this beer and distribute it widely to friends and fans alike!
Go Cubbies! Let's score some runs!

Hi everyone,
This just became available to us today - an interview with BBQ Bob done at Podcast Expo 2006. KaRi from TPS Radio was our gracious host.
This interview was a bit long - so I edited it down as much as I could so that it would still make sense.
KaRi's podcast can be found at:
Tell her BBQ Bob sent ya over.

God Bless!

The pic is of Bob at the OCPodcasters booth during the interview....

BBQ Bob’s “Big Swingin’ Texas Sweetbreads”

Grilled Sweetbreads in a Balsamic Beurre Blanc

Don’t be scared! This is an outstanding way to eat sweetbreads.
Takes a little time to get ‘em done, but worth the extra effort!
Guaranteed once you’ve had Bob’s sweetbreads you’ll crave ‘em again and again, just ask Miss Claudia!

Marked Explicit due to closing song by ACDC - not for little ears please. smiley Goofy BBQ Bob chose this one - NOT ME!!!

(Edited two days later to say that BBQ Bob played a dirty trick on Miss Claudia. He told me we were eatin' Bull testicles!!! Sweetbreads are REALLY the thymus glands of the young calf and the lamb. The thymus gland consists of two parts, the elongated throat gland and the heart gland. Sweetbreads are very tender and have a delicate, mild flavor. Calf sweetbreads are the most widely used. Sweetbreads can be prepared in a variety of ways from grilling, sautéing to frying.
What a mean trick!
Bob expounds on our October 13th show (our Beer Review Show)

BBQ Bob's "The Great Pumpkin Cheesecake"
Kahlua Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Don't be ascared! This one is easier than it looks.

This is a beer only show folks...

I brewed this with Chris from O'Shea's Brew Shop...
his first time brewing an all grain batch.

I think it came out great and I can't wait to taste it.
We'll know by Halloween.
Still need to do the spices though in the secondary...

Should have a very pronounced pumpkin flavor.

Unfortunately, folks, we are under some construction at Bob's BBQ Ranch and I apologize for my cluttered garage...but believe me, it IS Miss Claudia's fault.

God Bless!

Get ready to take a walk on the Wild Side. This sausage and mushroom stuffing will simply blow your mind.

I wasn't gonna share this recipe but Miss Claudia said somethin' that's this good you just can't keep to yourself.

Hi folks,
We really haven't done very many dessert recipes - so I gave you a loaded weapon. My Two Ton Bourbon Pecan Cake!

Don't be drivin' or operatin' heavy machinery after you eat this cake - it's that strong!

Perfect with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Miss Claudia likes hers with chocolate sauce drizzle and a cup of coffee....


God Bless!

BBQ Bob & Miss Claudia

Make sure you grab the complete & detailed recipe at my site:
BBQ Bob's Official BBQ & Beer Bash Website

This soup didn't have a name, other than plain ol' Chicken Tomatillo Soup - then one day, Miss Claudia got mighty sick and wanted some of my famous tomatillo soup.
I took a picture of her that day - and honest to God, she looked just like this mummy - hence, the name:

Sopa de Las Momias de Guanajuato! (Soup of the Mummies of Guanajuato).

Listen to the show here.

Google the Mummies of Guanjuato to have a little history lesson. winking

The reason I gave it this name is because after Miss Claudia had a bowl or two, she felt much better. I'm not sayin' it has medicinal properties - but who knows?! Maybe it does!

God Bless,

BBQ Bob and Miss Claudia

I guess you'd say we did our very first videocast today - from beginning to end.

9-11 BBQ Bob Tribute Show

This is our first time at doing ANYTHING with video, folks. Hope you like what we tried to put together for the show. You see a snippet of ol' Bob - we'll be doing more videocasts in the future - they are obviously a lot tougher to put together and much more time consuming, so we might do a monthly video episode consisting of some Brew and BBQ!

Today we're keepin' it simple - Commemoration Ale in honor of the fallen heroes of 9-11.

Give it a little time to load since it contains video. It's in .mov format . winking
We edited the videocast to add a song to the end of the show. There is a song clip with Catie (13) from Catie's Kitchen Podcast singing, "Always Hope" - a song commemorating 9-11.

You might have seen Danny cooking on the Jay Leno Show or perhaps on Rosie O'Donnell. He is one firefighter chef you don't wanna miss!


Firefighter Dan Rinaldi with the Providence Fire Department in Rhode Island cooked his way to $10,000 and the title of America's "Hottest" Firefighting Cook in the second national TABASCO® Cook & Ladder Competition held at The Institute of Culinary Education (formerly Peter Kump's New York Cooking School) in New York City on February 5, 2002.

Rinaldi traded in his turnout coat and Scott pack for an apron and spice rack to make his favorite off-duty recipe, Firehouse Fra-Diavilo, a lobster and spaghetti dish with a spicy pink sauce. He competed in this heated cook-off with nine other firefighters and their "fire-ry" creations from around the country.

"I was thrilled to have the opportunity to come to New York and cook with the best firehouse cooks in the nation. The warm atmosphere and camaraderie added just the right flavor and heat to my favorite recipe," Rinaldi said. Rinaldi is uncertain as to how he will use his own prize money, but adds, "I feel honored to be able to contribute half of the prize winnings to my firehouse, where I know the money will be greatly appreciated."

Make sure to check out BBQ Bob's Site to get Danny's award winning recipes!

What we've got here is probably the tastiest, most succulent piece of meat you'll ever stick in your mouth.
Make sure you put this one on the to-do list and get your little slice of heaven!
Enjoy it!

God Bless,
