Recipes:


Creamy Grits from Jim 'N Nicks Barbecue

1 gallon cold water
4 cups grits
8 ounces butter
1 cup parmesan
4 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 tbsp Tabasco sauce


Pour water into large, deep container.  Combine with cold water and stir grits with a whisk.  Once grits settle the husks should rise to the surface of the water. With a fine skimmer, remove the husks from the surface of the water and discard.

At this point, transfer the grits and the water to a full size hotel pan. Place hotel pan in the steamer and cook for one hour.  Note that the grits should be cooked UNCOVERED in the steamer.

After an hour, stir the grits. They should be thick and completely tender. If not, place back in the steamer and cook for 15 more minutes and check again.

Add butter to grits, followed by parmesan, kosher salt, black pepper and Tabasco sauce.    Whisk all ingredients together to thoroughly combine and melt butter and cheese. Hold on the steam table for service.
