Three fried chicken and biscuits sandwiches on a baking sheet with a bowl of honey beside and drizzled around the sandwiches.

Fried Chicken and Biscuits

Classic fried chicken is reimagined with a shatteringly crisp, delicate crust that usurps the usual thick breading. Flaky, buttery biscuits are requisite. Honey and pickles strongly encouraged.

A rack of barbecue beef ribs, with four sliced off the end.

Barbecue Beef Ribs

Minimal effort. Maximum return. These ribs seem like they were tended all night and day in the smoker. Yet mandate barely any effort with a slow spell in the oven or on the grill.

Three whole smoked chickens on a round grill.

Smoked Chicken

Crisp skin. Succulent meat. A pervasive smokiness. And a pronounced yet balanced spice rub. All with very little fuss. That’s what you can count on when you try this hen.

Part of a loaf of pain de mie on a round wooden cutting board.

Pain de Mie

Characterized by its distinctly rectangular shape and, in true French form, buttery taste, this classic loaf is traditionally made in a Pullman pan although any old loaf pan can work.

Two bowls of North Carolina clam chowder with a torn slice of bread, two empty bowls, and several spoons beside them.

North Carolina Clam Chowder

No, not New England clam chowder. North Carolina clam chowder. It’s a brothier, clammier, lighter chowder that lets the clamminess come through. No complaints here.
