BUGBEAR BBQ - FANTASTICAL FEASTS MADE EASY

Of all the websites in all the worlds, in all the realms, you've come to the right spot. If you’re hungry and love BBQ almost as much as you love slicing a bloody swath through beasts, monstrosities, and aberrations that is. Because we at Bugbear BBQ truly believe the greatest gain from adventuring is not the treasure or experience, rather the treasurerous experience of truly good barbecue!

 

Drawing from the three great schools of barbecue, Human, Dwarf, and Hobgoblin, we here at Bugbear BBQ aim to take the magic out of good cooking and put it in the hands of every everyday adventurer out there.

 

Because what’s the point of saving the world(s) if the eats is lousy?

 

Be it owlbear or umber, pixie or pikachu; we’ve got the right recipe for you. So sit back, fire up the smoker and crack a brew, because we’ll take you through the process; from getting the right cut, choosing the perfect wood, brining the brute, to side and drink parings.

 

Because we at Bugbear BBQ believe it’s a wild, wondrous world(s) out there, full of fabulous and fearsome fiends, massive monsters, and crazy critters.

 

And we want to eat ‘em all!

There’s an idiom we always found strange in that “laws are a lot like sausages; it’s better not to see them being made.” As connoisseurs of carne here at Bugbear BBQ, we think that saying is miles off from the truth. Any good fantasy pitmaster not only wants to know ex...

As much as we at Bugbear BBQ try to avoid the cliche of seasonal/ holiday recipes, we cannot hide our glee when it comes to this culinary treat: Barbecued Easter Bunny. Because, let’s be honest here, the Easter Bunny is pretty creepy. Not quite Tooth Fairy creepy, what...

In the fantasy beast food chain, on creature stands supreme; an apex predator all fear: The dragon. With no natural predators, the dragon eats others at its leisure while never fearing ending up on the dinner plate itself.

Which is partially why dragons are so delicious...

I hate to be the one to say this, but you’ve all been lied to all your life about fantasy food. Every fantasy book, movie, show and RPG has somehow drilled into us that every adventurer out on the trail eats stew, which has got to be—hands down—the worst possible meal...

If we had a nickel for every time some wisenheimer demanded a vegetarian BBQ recipe from us, we’d be millionaires instead of hundredaires. And honestly, we see the intended humor of expecting vegetables as a main dish from an institution whose moto is “You say monster...

Every fantasy pitmaster out there has a secret recipe (or three) for hippogriff kept under lock and key. This is because hippogriff, along with troll and minotaur, makes up one of the “Big Three” meats every cook must master if he or she expects to rise in the ranks in...

One of the more esoteric fantasy beasts is the chumbawamba, an odd little animal with a wide mouth and purple hue that masqueraded as a popular British band decades back. They are surprisingly hearty, with a 30 year lifespan, penchant for political positions, and affec...

It is a proverb that every serious pitmaster lives by that truly great barbecue does not require a sauce. But like most cooking proverbs (vengeance being best when served cold in particular), it is seldom adhered to as customers slather sauce all over our masterpieces...

We at Bugbear BBQ consider ourselves jacks of all trades as we seamlessly swim from one school of barbecue to the next to derive the best possible flavors, but lately have been receiving quite a few questions as to what we mean by the “Big Three” in terms of schools of...

Ah, the majestic direwolf, a symbol seen in equal measures in the North and on bumper stickers all over my neighborhood (usually hybrids for some reason). Now I should note before we really dig into our recipe that the direwolf is basically the same as a warg, which th...

Ah Pikachu, the meat that proves correct the old adage “the cuter the creature, the more delicious the dish.

And while undeniably cute, what few people realize is that Pikachu are incredibly obnoxious due to incessantly repeating their names like squeaky little Steve H...

Ah, another day at Bugbear BBQ and another request on how to prepare unicorn, this time in burger form. Due to our decision to only serve ethically-sourced, non-sentient animals, coupled with our fear of divine retribution for slaying such a beloved beast, unicorns are...

Every pitmaster worth his or her salt knows a thing or two about stuffing (and probably salt). At Bugbear BBQ we’ve been known to stuff a troll burger patty full of bacon, cheese and jalapenos before stuffing it into our mouths.

After the cooking, of course.

But over the...

We at Bugbear BBQ firmly believe that the best barbecue comes from the best ingredients, and so we prefer our meats to be ethically sourced; consisting of wild-caught, free-range, or battlefield-harvested creatures. Because of our stance on ethically sourced meats, we...

While BBQ joints the worlds over each boast the best hippogriff you've ever tasted, true BBQ connoisseurs know the real litmus test for a pitmaster's skill is simple ol’ troll. If you've ever tried to trim a hunk of troll, you'll understand why: the meat is notoriously...
