Robson Ranch Texas Smoke Up a Feast with the Grill Masters

A dedicated group known as the Grill Masters—Smokers and Grillers at Robson Ranch Texas smoke up a feast. These dedicated pitmasters gather every other month and are taking barbecue to a whole new level. They share their secrets, swap recipes, and, of course, indulge in incredible, home-smoked creations. Their gatherings alternate between member cookouts and restaurant outings. Recently, the Grill Masters enjoyed an educational visit to Roy Hutchins BBQ in Trophy Club. Pitmaster Fisk himself gave them a tour of the legendary pits that produce their mouthwatering barbecue.

A Culinary Adventure at David and Susan Parker’s

Back at Robson Ranch, David and Susan Parker hosted a meeting that showcased the club’s culinary prowess. The evening kicked off with a unique appetizer: a BBQ pizza crescent ring. Smoked chicken, tossed in a sweet and savory brown sugar bourbon sauce, was nestled inside a crescent dough base with mozzarella and spicy pizza sauce. A finishing touch of butter and a smoky chipotle glaze took this dish to the next level.

Feasting Fit for a King (or Queen) of Barbecue

For the main course, the group savored “Smoked Cuban Cigars.” Thin-sliced pork loin, rolled with Swiss cheese, ham, and a dill pickle spear, was wrapped in bacon and coated in a Texas-style rub before being smoked to perfection. A final glaze of Georgia mustard sauce added a tangy kick.

Dr. Larry Lewis, a member with a dual doctorate in education and, it seems, barbecue, brought his legendary smoked sweet potatoes. These melt-in-your-mouth treats were first smoked, then transformed into a decadent casserole with creamy custard and a pecan praline topping.

Meanwhile, Paul Dorwaldt’s Texas-style baked beans, slow-smoked with mesquite and packed with savory goodness, were a guaranteed crowd-pleaser. He also contributed a smoky cast-iron skillet cornbread made with buttermilk, the perfect accompaniment to any barbecue feast.

Furthermore, John McNemar rounded out the meal with a sweet surprise – apple enchiladas! Small tortillas filled with a warm apple pie filling were smoked until tender, then served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for a unique and delicious finale.

A Night to Remember

As one member aptly summed it up, “This is BBQ you can’t find or buy anywhere!”

The Grill Masters’ gatherings are a testament to the power of community and shared passion. They not only enjoy delicious food, but also forge lasting friendships and create memories that will be savored long after the last bite is gone.
