 Using Kingsford Hardwood Pellets

Full Meal from the Grill

This post is sponsored by Kingsford. The opinion and text are mine.

Cooking a whole family meal on the grill is not only a time-saver but also a very delicious way to prepare food. On top of that, you can create fabulous memories with your loved ones. I am all about creating memories, particularly around food.

Well, in this post, I am sharing a tasty sandwich with you, a side dish that could be served as a summer salad as well, and a comforting dessert that just about anyone would admire.

I think that the best part of summertime is cooking food outdoor on your grill. Who agrees with me? There is no mistake that the food tastes so much more enjoyable when it comes directly from your grill to the plate.

I partnered with Kingsford Hardwood Pellets to share with you all these appetizing grilled recipes.

Kingsford Hardwood Pellets are made with all-natural, pure flavor hardwoods and absolutely no fillers, binders or preservatives, bringing out undoubtedly the best possible flavor.

Full Meal from the Grill

You must try their pellets because it will fire up the flavor in any pellet grill — Classic, Cherrywood, Hickory, Signature, and Maple flavor. Furthermore, Kingsford Hardwood Pellets are proudly made in the USA.

For my weekend family meal, I used Kingsford Cherrywood  all-natural 100% cherry hardwood. Additionally, as I said, there are no fillers, so cherry’s fruity aroma adds a delicate smoke flavor to any protein or vegetable, and pairs perfectly with pork.

These all-natural Kingsford pellets are made with pure flavor hardwood to deliver a sweetly refined smoke you will absolutely love. Regardless, you can most certainly use Classic, Hickory, or Signature Pellets, but I wanted to stick to Cherrywood for this meal!

How to use Kingsford Hardwood Pellets:

Pour wood pellets into a storage container, also known as a hopper. The pellets are then fed into a cooking chamber by the electricity-powered auger. Then the wood pellets ignite, heating the cooking chamber where the air is brought in by fans, and your food gets infused with a real wood smoky flavor.

    pork loin in the marinade, cover and keep in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours;
    make sure to turn it around at least once.

Grill Prep:

  1. Open your Kingsford pellets bag. I used classic which is great for almost
    anything you want in your grill. Flavorful and strong. Wood pellets are poured
    into a storage container also known as a hopper. The pellets are then fed into
    a cooking chamber by an auger that is powered by electricity.
  2. When ready to cook, smoke setting with the lid open.
  3. Wait for the fire to start about 5 min, depending on the grill type and
    model.
  4. When ready to cook, set the grill temperature to 450F and preheat lid
    closed for 15 minutes.

Grilling:

  1. Place the pork loin on the hot grill and turn every 2-3 minutes, closing the
    lid between each turn, until pork loin is seared all around. Reduce heat to
    300F. Cook until the meat reaches an internal temperature of 150F

    Remove from the grill and let rest for 15 minutes. Slice in 1/2" thick
    pieces.

Assemble:

  1. Place bread slices on the grill and allow it to get grill marks, 1-2 min on
    each side.
  2. Add condiment of your choice, such as mayo-sriracha, and place a few pork
    slices on top of a bed of greens, shredded lettuce, mixed song greens, or
    arugula.

Grilled Skillet Blueberry Galette

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 50 minutes
Resting Pastry Time: 1 hour
Total Time: 2 hours

Delicious and easy recipe for an amazing Grilled Skillet Blueberry Galette

Ingredients

GALETTE DOUGH

  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 4-1/2 oz., 9 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cubed into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 4 to 5 tablespoons ice-cold water

BLUEBERRY FILLING:

  • 12 ounces blueberries (about 2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Zest of one lemon
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 tablespoon regular or coarse sugar

Instructions

GALETTE DOUGH

  1. In the bowl of a food processor, combine flour, salt, and sugar. Add butter,
    and process until the mixture resembles coarse meal, 8 to 10 seconds.
  2. With the machine running, add ice water in a slow, steady stream through the
    feed tube. Pulse until the dough begins to clump together in the bowl. Test by
    squeezing a small amount of dough together: if it holds, you are good to go; if
    it’s crumbly, add more ice-cold water, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  3. Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead once or twice to
    bring the dough into one mass.
  4. Pat the dough with your fingers and palms to form a disc about 3/4″ thick.
    Wrap in plastic and transfer to the refrigerator. Allow it to rest and chill
    for an hour.

Make a galette:

  1. Preheat grill to 300° Fahrenheit.
  2. Toss blueberries with lemon juice, lemon zest and sugar in a large bowl,
    then add cornstarch
  3. Roll out dough on a lightly floured surface to a 10-12-inch round. You can also
    divide and make a few smaller galettes.
  4. Place rolled out dough in the oven/grill safe skillet, let the edges drape
    over.
  5. Mound blueberries in center of the dough, leaving a 2" border. Fold
    edges over, overlapping slightly. Brush dough with beaten egg and sprinkle with
    sugar.
  6. Bake galette until crust is dark golden brown and filling is bubbling, 45-50
    minutes. Let cool before serving with vanilla ice cream.

Also, from time to time I would add eggs and sometimes I would skip including them.

The best part of this kind of salad is that you can use any chicken breast, although I would totally recommend rotisserie chicken.

Most of the time we do have leftovers after getting a large rotisserie chicken from the store and this is what we make.

It is just such a delicious and easy way to make lunch or even dinner.

My husband and I devoured this tray of lettuce wraps. I did not even miss bread or additional carbs.

That being said, I will probably slice some tomatoes and avocado the next time I serve these.

Chicken and Egg Salad Lettuce Wraps

This salad reminds me greatly of my Russian Olivier Salad, except that I did not add smoked ham and boiled potatoes.

Oh, I can’t even tell you how much I love that salad that’s why I created this one. Something similar, but still somewhat different.

Please do check out my delicious and extremely easy Russian Olivier Salad because I have a feeling that you guys will love it.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2-2 cup pull apart rotisserie chicken breast
  • 4 large boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 cup frozen peas, defrosted (optional)

  • 2 tablespoons mayo
  • 1 teaspoon yellow mustard
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 1 Butterhead lettuce

Instructions

  1. Use any leftover chicken breast such as oven-roasted chicken or even boiled, however, my recommendation is rotisserie. Take the skin off and pull off chicken breast meat off. Shred and pull apart with two forks or with your hands. Place in a large mixing bowl.

  3. Add diced pickles, lemon juice, a dash of salt and pepper, then mix it by tossing it.
  4. Now, add mayo and mustard and mix it to coat everything very well. Keep salad in the fridge before serving.
  5. Wash and separate butter lettuce or any lettuce on hand and add about 2 tablespoons of the salad in the middle of the lettuce cup.
  6. I like garnishing it with a dash of black pepper and sweet paprika or red hot chili pepper flakes. This really depending on your personal preference.
  7. Enjoy!

Notes

The salad could be refrigerated and in airt tight container for up to 3 days. That is for the best taste.

If you do not like peas, please omit or add corn or carrots.

Shrimp Pad Thai

Shrimp Pad Thai, an effortless yet exquisite meal. It’s a shame that a majority of us go for take-out. Just think about how we could make these noodles right at home in less than 30 minutes.

I know one thing for sure, this meal will be far healthier. You can use whatever ingredients your heart desires within the making. 

Well, I have a variety of comfort foods that I savor, including these palatable noodles.

I absolutely adore the combination of shrimps and noodles; Toss in some extraordinary, mouth-watering Thai sauce, and I will, for sure, dive right into the platter without question.

Furthermore, I have a certain fondness toward food and love it, and I am not reluctant to say so.

We briskly consumed this with pleasure until the whole entire wok was completely devoured.

At that moment, my husband passionately declared that I must make this dish weekly.

Shrimp Pad Thai

Since I am now on the Keto Diet, it is exceedingly difficult for me to prepare my favorite foods for my family. 

Every few hours, I do not fail to smell the pleasant and sweet aroma of pancakes with warm buttery maple syrup drizzled on top or begin to daydream of a delicious sandwich.

One of the most strenuous meals to resist are these appetizing noodles. 

I continue to stick with the diet through all of the strain and struggle because I have a goal and a purpose for why I am doing Keto, and truly wish to complete what I feel is only necessary for the bettering of myself.
