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!

Recipe of the Month: The MVP Guide to Grilling

August 17, 2016 Outdoor Celebrations, Outdoor Cooking

It’s that time of year where everyone gets together for a football and food frenzy.  If you can’t be at the game, aim for the next best thing:  watch the game with friends in the comfort of your own outdoor living room.    So ditch the truck tailgate and fire up the grill in your backyard for a “pigskin” pregame party.

When establishing your outdoor kitchen, don’t limit yourself to a little charcoal griller out on the driveway.  Your outdoor cook space can be fully stocked with every appliance and convenience you need for cooking a backyard football feast. Just think about cooking outside without having to make trips back and forth into the house!
Consider all the elements of a high-function cooking area:
  • Built-in gas grill
  • Sideburner
  • Pizza oven
  • Drawers and cabinets
  • Raised bar top and counter space
  • Sinks
  • Refrigerator
  • Ice maker
  • Wine cooler

… just something to think about!

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.
