ABOUT SAM THE COOKING GUY

Sam quit a biotech job in July of 2001 to try his hand as the host of a travel show.  But a month before a trip to shoot in Tokyo and Hong Kong, September 11th happened – and that changed everything.He decided to stick with TV, but switched from travel to cooking and eventually landed a twice-weekly 2-minute cooking segment on a local morning news program.  The segments caught on and grew into a 30-minute show appropriately named ‘Sam the Cooking Guy’ – an irreverent mix of humor and easy-to-replicate recipes. It’s ‘reality’ cooking – in the sense that whatever really happens when he shoots, stays in the show.  Eventually, Discovery Health came along and ‘Just Cook This! with Sam the Cooking Guy’ was born. Known for his ‘big in taste and small in effort’ philosophy, Sam has 15 Emmy awards, 3 cookbooks and a dozen visits to the Today Show, He’s also creates video content for companies like Chosen Foods, Bed Bath & Beyond & Bumble Bee Foods, And his casually understandable YouTube series continues his simple style, with 6-15 minute episodes.

Smoked Cedar Plank Salmon

Prepare the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker by filling the blaze basket accessory with lump charcoal. The basket should sit on the charcoal plate at the rear of the smoker with the hinged part of the grate above it so you can access it. Bring the temperature of the smoker up to 325ºF.

Remove any bones or skin from the salmon filet. Rinse the cedar plank and place it on the grill for 3-4 minutes to bring out the cedar aroma. Brush the plank with olive oil. Place the salmon filet on the plank and brush it with olive oil. Squeeze two lemon wedges over the salmon and sprinkle it with salt, pepper, and dill (optional). Put the plank with salmon on the grill and cook for 15-20 minutes. It is ready when the internal temperature of salmon reaches 135ºF. Enjoy this healthy and delicious entrée.

Ingredients :
Lump charcoal
1-2 cedar planks
2-3 pounds salmon
Olive oil
Fresh lemon wedges
Salt
Pepper
Dill (optional)

Rotisserie Chicken

Wash and brine your chicken with your favorite dry brine and place on the rotisserie rod. Truss the chicken once it’s on the rod and use pliers to tighten the fork screws. Prepare the Caliber Pro Kamado Smoker by filling the blaze basket accessory 3/4 full of lump charcoal and a handful of apple chips at the top. Put a drip pan at the bottom of your grill to catch the juices for use as a baste after the chicken is cooked. Wear heat protective gloves when inserting the rotisserie rod and chicken. Let the rotisserie run for about an 75 to 90 minutes while basting with olive oil periodically. To check the doneness, turn rotisserie motor off and insert the thermometer into the thickest part of breast with temperature reaching 165 (+/- 5 degrees). Rotisserie chicken on the Caliber Crossflame Silver or Pro gas grill should be cooked on HI initially, and then MED once skin darkens. Cook time and doneness is similar to cooking on the Pro Kamado. Enjoy!

Ingredients:
One 8 lb. chicken or two 4.5 lb. chickens
Olive oil
Your favorite meat dry rub or just salt and pepper
