Smoking a Deer Shoulder!

Son-in-law killed a nice buck lately. He decided he wants to experiment with it by smoking it. Brought it over during Thanksgiving. This post is being done prior to starting on it.

We havent decided yet exactly how to do what we want to do. It is too big to lay across in smoker so we are going to try to hang it up. Also, I think we are going to inject with apple juice and create a rub for it.

Check back to see what goes on with it and the outcome.

Just cooking it up!

Whats Cooking -Amazing Coconut Pie -

I personally love coconut pie. Therefore, you may find several versions of a coconut pie recipe on this site. I found this one on a favorite recipe website. Try it out - has to be good.

I have always loved this pie when my mom made it. If you like coconut, you'll like this pie. And it is soooo easy to make. If you want an easy, five minute dessert, this is perfect. It's basically a custard coconut pie. It tastes great warm or cold. There is no one specific memory that stands out with this recipe but I always remember feeling special when mom made this one. Maybe it was because not everyone in my family liked coconut so when mom made this dessert it felt like a special treat for those of us that did like coconut. Whatever the reason, this is still one of my favorite special treats for myself to this day.

2 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup biscuit mix
4 eggs
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup coconut

Combine milk, sugar, biscuit mix, eggs, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl. Mix with an electric blender on low speed for 3 minutes. Pour into a greased 9-inch pie pan. Let stand about 5 minutes and then sprinkle on the coconut. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Serve warm or cool. Refrigerate leftovers (if you have any!).

What is Cooking it up about?

Well, a new blog and maybe a new topic or just old ones re-hashed. Cooking it up could be about food. Cooking it up could be about politics or Cooking it up could be just about Whats Cooking around the world.

I am going to develop this idea in the future and then go for it. Help me with ideas if you have any.
