We don't have any current pictures but let me type up some recipes. This will be so much fun! Normally we have to make my hubby his alpha gal foods separate so it doesn't get contaminated by the regular foods. When I get a chance a bit later I will come back and edit this post to add the recipes.

Edited for recipes:

Sweet Baby Rays Ribs of Delight!

What do you need?

1 tablespoon cayennepepper
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 rack of baby-back pork ribs
1 (18 ounce) bottle sweet baby ray's original barbecue sauce

Coat both sides of the ribs with cayenne pepper, black pepper, garlic powder and salt the night before cooking. Wrap in aluminium foil and let rest in refrigerator over night (tent like for cooking makes it easy to just put in grill next day, bone side down). Cook low and slow for about 2 hours around 250 degrees. Open foil (carefully, dont want to burn or steam yourself~ this is bbq not lobster bake). After opening foil careful not to lose the juices inside cover in the sweet baby rays sauce and reclose foil for another 2 hours slow and low. (If you lost the juices you can add some water back in place to keep moist but it loses some of the seasoning flavor that was in the natural juices) Now carefully remove from foil and place on the grill covering again with sweet baby rays sauce for about 10 minutes. After that enjoy your fresh bbq with family and/or friends! Don't forget your side dishes! Below is my mother's hashbrwon casserole recipe that we always make.

Now we do have an alpha gal version of the hashbrown casserole recipe if anyone here wants it let me know. It isn't as good as the original but we make do these days since my hubby can't eat this one any more and we make him smoked duck breast in place of the bbq ribs.

And of course you need baked beans to go with any bbq right?

Smokey Pap Bakes Beans

What so you need?

2 slices of bacon, diced
1 small sweet onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon chipole chili powder (We go normally 1/2 but you may want to use less)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper ( normally we use the cracked black pepper from the grinder)
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons bbq sauce (sweet baby rays normally, if you didn't notice above it's our favorite bbq sauce lol)
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 (22 ounce) cans baked beans (Bush’s Baked Beans if not in a rush then will make our own beans)

Go ahead and preheat oven to 400 F while you cook the bacon in a cast iron skillet on an stove eye until crispy, leave bacon grease in pan. Mix in onion, pepper and garlic. Stir until it softens. Add in your paprika, chili powder, salt and pepper. Cook a couple of minutes before adding in the vinegar, bbq sauce, ketchup, mustard and brown sugar. Stir well until everything mixes before adding your bakes beans to the mix. Bring to boil then turn off heat. Give it just a tad bit of time then move to the oven (it's better if you used a cast iron skillet but if not now is the time to put it into an oven safe pan or container (dutch oven type thing too). If yoy like to make things pretty you can add some additional pieces of bacon to the top of the beans. Bake for about 30 minutes.

Now you have a basic bbq meal.
Oh but wait you need corn on the cob straight from the garden to make the meal complete (we won't talk about desserts yet lol).

What do you need?

Corn on the cob still in shucks
Butter (we use the vegan earth butter for my hubbys alpha gal)
Vegan Ranch (see below)

1 cup raw cashews
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup peeled and diced cucumber
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt, more to taste
1/4 teaspoon fresh chopped dill
Blend until smooth and save for when corn is done).

First I pull back the husks and pull out the silks (give silks to goats eyeballing the meal prep outside near porch). Let sit in a large bowl of water to help keep corn moist when grilling. (Normally 10 to 30 minutes pending how long it takes to mix up vegan ranch dressing for later). Put on grill and turn often watching it doesn't start to burn the shucks much (the water soak helps prevent this). Normally cooks about 15 minutes.

Now enjoy your meal!
