Creole Hush Puppies

Creole Hush Puppies

    Mighty Fine Creole Hush Puppies; One of the best kitchenman back yard nibbles are my Creole Hush Puppies. I have wowed a lot of people with these.

The all time BBQ favourite is a nice marbled heal fatty hunk of beef brisket. My friend Kerry chopped down a few century cherry trees in his back yard that were damaged in a wind storm and stored the wood for the last 3 years to dry. We used few of the larger chunks and turned them into charcoal to use for higher heat cooking requirements. Made a great fire heat source with even temperatures¬†in the BBQ. The...
