Method to my Meals – Method to my Meals

Guest Chef: Troy Kloewer

It’s barbecue season and Troy Kloewer shows off his Big Green Egg (BGE) skills! Troy is my girlfriend Kari’s husband and they generously invited us over for a Sunday BBQ. He definitely impressed everyone with beer can chicken and raspberry chipotle pork tenderloin. Obviously you need a BGE for these 2 recipes, and it might inspire you to purchase one. After watching Troy whip up these 2 dishes, I know that a BGE is now on my culinary wish list.
