  • COOKING WITH CHEF(Jeff)

    Posted by Jeff Heinz

    A New Feature on Sunday Mornings Polka Jamboree at 9:30 is COOKING With CHEF(Jeff).  week, I will be cooking a different meat from Ski's Meat Market Hwy 10 in St Point. Using my Green Mountain Pellet Grill, Daniel Boone Model from Charlie's Hardware and Rental Hwy 153 Mosinee available in two different sizes and starting at $599. The pellets for the grill are from American Wood Fibers and are available in  5 flavors Mesquitte, Oak, Maple, Apple and Hickory..and can be purchased from Zillman's Meats Wausau, The Pool People, Charlie's Hardware, RA Miller Supply and Marathon Feed.

    This week I feature a Salmon from Alaska from Ski's Meat Market Hwy 10 in St. Point. I only sprinkled some Lawry's Salt and put a cube of butter in the tin foil. I cooked it for 1 and 30 minutes at 350 and wow. Alex and Nicholas said they liked it better than the Ribeye and they love steak. It was cooked to perfection. If I can do it.....anyone can. You have to try the Salomon at Ski's Meat Market.

    Today we feature Baby Back Ribs from Ski's Meat Market. I put a special rub on these before I cooked them. The rub recipe comes from the book I received with the grill. I cooked them for 5 hours at 200 degrees in the rack I also received at Charlie's Hardware. I used Hickory Grilling pellots and they gave the meat a GREAT flavor. MMMM Good!

    This week I feature a Ribeye from Ski's Meat Market Hwy 10 in St. Point. I hand rubbed them with Ski's 1855 Steak and Roast rub. I cooked them for 10 1/2 minutes on each side at 450 on my Daniel Boone model grill. They were cooked to perfection. If I can do it.....anyone can.

    I received an e-mail from Charlie about a month ago. You've got to give this thing a listen.

    My song writing partner, Kip Lawrence and I have written a song called "The Cheesehead Heaven Polka".  I'm originally from Wisconsin and he's from Ohio.
    We'd like to know if you would be interested in playing it on your station. 

    Thanks,
