Teriyaki pork tenderloin with Traeger Coffee rub - we call it candy in our family. Mandatory on Bowie's tailgater too no questions.
Meatballs on the Traeger. Bowie loves those along with steak and of course wheel of cheese for a starter.
Depends, we love using the whole drum set of grills. Slow with that rolling smoke then blasting it with high heat on convection or flat top.
We both have been leaning on that whisky dust big time. Our second favorite ingredient is butter.
Can’t have one with out the other but I would choose salty. Bowie would choose sweet.
OMG, I can’t keep up with Bowie and all these kids cooking channels she watches and gets inspo from. We are always trying something new. She’s not scared to dive straight into the deep every time. I love Diva Q, she an amazing chef but it’s her heart, how she loves and makes time for the kiddos is what I love the most about her.

We’ve paired these crispy, thick-cut fries with spicy chipotle ketchup and topped them with Traeger Beef Rub for a bold pop of cracked pepper and a hint of zesty citrus.
