Grand Daddy Holland’s Beef BBQ

Grand Daddy Hollands Beef BBQ recipe was lost when he left us. But Gary’s cousin Kevin,  has been perfecting his version of that recipe as he remembers it. It’s pretty close to the original. But even if it’s not exactly the same, it’s still fantastic!

Every time we make this, Gary remembers a weekend on the Lake in Love Valley, NC where Grand Daddy built a cabin. The whole family would gather there during the summers and enjoy the water, the woods and the many cook outs. I hope your family can make your own memories with this yummy family tradition.

Preparation time: 45 minutes  Continue reading
