Thanks to Michael Antonelli for creating this recipe as he was thinking of ways to use up a bunch of zucchini grown by our favorite farmer, Howard Boswell. The result was a delicious side-dish that has great flavor, a tiny bit of spice and cheesy goodness. You will want to double the recipe!
¼ cup oil (olive, avocado, vegetable, etc)
2 tbsp Perfect Bite Bee Butt Honey Chipotle Seasoning
½ cup parmesan cheese (shredded or grated)
Cut zucchini into ¼” rounds. Brush with oil on top, sprinkle with Perfect Bite Bee Butt seasoning and then cover in parmesan cheese. Air fry on 400 for 4 minutes. You can also bake these on 400 or grill until cheese turns golden brown. Enjoy!
These ribs could not be more simple to make and they are FALL. OFF. THE BONE.
1 medium onion, sliced
2 garlic cloves, peeled and minced (or use garlic press)
½ cup water
3-4 lb rack of ribs
1/2 cup Perfect Bite BBQ Rib Rub
1 cup Perfect Bite BBQ sauce (we used Sassy Sweet)
Line slow cooker with a liner (save yourself the mess). To slow cooker, add sliced onion, minced garlic and ½ cup water. Stir to combine. Remove silver skin off the back of ribs, and trim any other large areas of fat, as desired. Sprinkle Perfect Bite BBQ Rib Rub on the ribs and massage that into the front and back of the ribs. Add ribs to slow cooker, standing them up along the wall of the slow cooker. Set on low heat for 8 hours. Once cooked, carefully remove ribs onto cutting board – they will be falling off the bone by this point. Add your favorite Perfect Bite BBQ sauce or spice it up a bit with a little pepper jelly instead. This pepper jelly tip was given to us by a retired professional BBQ competition judge who said it created an amazing sweet/heat flavor. We used pepper jelly from a local Alabama business, Young Farms, and tried pineapple, peach and strawberry jalapeno pepper jelly. All were delicious, but pineapple was our favorite on these ribs! While Perfect Bite BBQ sauce still holds the top spot in our heart, we always love experimenting with something new.
1 box puff pastry (containing 2 puff pastry sheets)
¾ lb cooked pork butt
2 tbsp Perfect Bite BBQ Butt Polish (can substitute Rib Rub or Bee Butt)
1 bottle of Perfect Bite BBQ Sassy Sweet or Sassy Heat BBQ Sauce
1 ½ cups shredded extra sharp cheddar cheese
1 tbsp water
Chopped Jalapenos (optional)
Thaw puff pastry 1 hr before cooking. Heat oven to 400. Shred/chop pork and mix in BBQ sauce ¼ cup at a time until desired consistency (should take ¾ - full bottle of sauce). You want it to be heavily sauced so these delicious little gems aren't dry after baking. Mix in Butt Polish Seasoning. Beat one egg with water and set aside. Cut puff pastry into 9 equal squares. Transfer puff pastry squares to a parchment-lined baking sheet, turning each square so it’s in a diamond shape. Fill the center with about 2 tbsp of pork and top with cheese (about 1 tbsp). Bring sides of puff pastry together and seal with a tiny dab of egg wash, if needed. Brush the puff pastry with egg wash and bake for 15 - 20 minutes until golden brown. Dip these in ranch and enjoy!

REFRIGERATE AT LEAST SEVERAL HOURS (BETTER OVERNIGHT)
4 chicken quarters

375 degrees for 1 hour in the Cookshack PG500 (I use Hickory and Cherry pellets)
Last 5 minutes apply Perfect Bite Sassy Sweet Old South BBQ Sauce
Take your desired cut of Chicken and rinse thoroughly. After rinsing pat each piece of Chicken dry. Coat each piece with extra virgin olive oil. Then coat each piece of chicken to taste (the more rub the stronger the Flavor) with Perfect Bite Chicken rub and refrigerate for several hours or overnight.
Grill chicken over open coals until done (the time depends on how hot your fire is). Prior to removing from grill slather each piece with Perfect Bite Sassy Sweet BBQ sauce. Allow the sauce to "caramelize" on the chicken (depending on the heat of your gill this will only take a couple of minutes or less. be careful not to burn the sauce or chicken). Prior to serving lightly sprinkle each piece of chicken with Perfect Bite Chicken Rub. Provide additional sauce on the side for those who really know how to eat BBQ chicken.
Shredded smoked pork (coated in Perfect Bite Butt Polish)
1 tbsp Perfect Bite Butt Polish
Swiss cheese slices
Dill pickle slices
Marinate 8-10 lb pork shoulder with heavy coating of Perfect Bite Butt Polish overnight and smoke for 10-12 hours at 225 degrees. Once cool enough to handle, shred smoked pork and mix in 1 tbsp Perfect Bite Butt Polish to flavor the meat. Slice cuban bread in half lengthwise. Spread a thin layer of mustard on each slice. On each sandwich, layer on 1 - 2 slices of ham, 1/2 cup of smoked pork, pickle slices and swiss cheese. Top with the other half of the bread. Butter a hot griddle or panini press and let butter sizzle for a few seconds. Add sandwiches when butter is hot and press down to condense sandwich as much as possible. This will create a crunchy exterior of the sandwich. You're looking for a slight golden-brown color on each side. When it's ready, remove the sandwich and slice in half to enjoy the Perfect Bite!

Remove fat from smoked boston butt and place small amounts of the meat into food processor. Chop until all meat has been finely chopped and add to large pot. If you don't have a food processor, just shred/chop the meat until here are no large pieces and add it all into the pot.

Add corn (including juice), creamed corn, Perfect Bite BBQ sauce, chopped onion, vinegar, soy sauce, and Perfect Bite Butt Polish and combine with the meat mixture.
