Recipe of the Month: Rodeo Round Up

February 26, 2018 Outdoor Cooking

In Texas it’s all about the rodeo right now, Houston’s bulls are a buckin’, pigs are a squealin’, and the rest of us are eating!  BBQ, fried Oreos, big-as-your-face cinnamon rolls… anything we can wrangle, we will eat!  So for this month’s recipe of the month we thought we would do a rodeo version with Texas Beef Brisket, smoked coffee, deep fried cookie dough and more!  These recipes will have you saying, “giddy up!”

Margarita Shrimp – We start healthy before we go in for the kill!

BBQ Jalapeño Poppers – Well that didn’t last long!

Texas Beef Brisket –  The secret is in the fruit wood!

The Donut Burger – We warned you, anything goes when it comes to rodeo food!

Deep Fried Cookie Dough – In case the donut burger wasn’t enough.

Smoked coffee – the perfect ending to any meal!

Try these and let us know what you think, yeeeee-haw!

January 29, 2018 Outdoor Celebrations

This time last year Houston was all ramped up and ready for the big game.  Just being in the same state as the game of all games was electric for Texas.  This year the big battle of the pigskins is in Minneapolis, Minnesota February 4th at 6:30pm.   So unless you are planning to visit the 22nd most populous state in the country… you need to start thinking of the best seat you can get for super duper Sunday.

No better place to party for this football frenzy than your own patio!   After all, you’ll have the best seat in the house, comfortable seating, great food at your fingertips and you’ll always be close to a bathroom.  Many people have outdoor patios built just so they can either watch football outside or so they can entertain at a moment’s notice!  In fact, some of our customers called us back in August of 2017 and said, “Hey, Texas Custom Patios, we would like to have this ready by Super Bowl Sunday, is that possible.?” So we got to building and guess what, the covered patios, outdoor kitchens and living rooms were built and those watching parties are sure to be a touchdown now!  So go ahead, invite over your football-loving friends, fire up the grill and get ready to party.

Real Simple came up with your must-have checklist for your Super Bowl LII party … don’t miss a pass, make sure your party is a hit!

You can make your list and check it twice, but at the end of the day … there are three categories of “Super Sunday Party-Goers” and we have something for each one.

Our Customers Love Us

We had very high expectations when Texas Custom Patios began construction on our back patio space. Because our roofline has a steep pitch and the odd location of our chimney, we were concerned about whether the addition would flow seamlessly with the rest of the roofline. Steven and his crews far exceeded our expectations. Professional and attentive to our concerns, Texas Custom Patios created the outdoor space we’ve always wanted – only better.
