Directions

Hollandaise

  1. MELT butter; set aside.
  2. SEPARATE egg yolks. In top of double boiler, WHISK yolks with water, lemon juice, and hot sauce. The mixture should start to lighten; KEEP WHISKING until a temperature of 160° F is reached.
  3. Then while whisking, slowly DRIZZLE in the melted butter. The sauce will thicken and coat the back of a spoon.
  4. FINISH by whisking in salt and chili powder. REMOVE from heat.
  5. KEEP at 160° F in an airtight container until ready to serve.

Smoked Pork Shoulder

  1. MIX brown sugar and dry spices.

  3. RUB spice mix onto pork surface; PLACE in covered bowl and REFRIGERATE for 24 hrs.
  4. SMOKE pork shoulder at 200° F to 210° F until an internal temperature of at least 145°F, about 4 to 6 hours and meat is able to be pulled.

Grits

  1. In a 1-gallon stockpot, COMBINE heavy cream, water, thyme, salt, pepper, and butter. BRING to a low boil over medium-high heat.
  2. STIR in grits until well combined. REDUCE heat to medium-low and COVER. COOK 12 to 14 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened.
  3. ADD corn; COOK uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. REMOVE from heat; STIR in cheese and chives. ADJUST seasonings to taste, if necessary.

6-Minute Egg

  1. ADD warm water, salt, and eggs to large pot.
  2. TURN to high heat and COOK for six minutes.
  3. TAKE off heat; REMOVE eggs from pot and PLACE in an ice bath.

  2. ADD shredded pork and MOVE around to heat thoroughly until it gets a little crispy on the outside.
