Whether you go for a juicy rack of ribs or some thick t-bone steaks, it’s hard to beat the smell of smoked meat wafting from your cabin porch. For the ultimate guys’ weekend in McCurtain County, pick up some choice cuts and throw a beast feast at your cabin. Your travel mates will thank you (if they can stop eating long enough to get the words out).

Need ideas? Here’s a few of favorites:

For something easy, throw on a couple dozen brats and go to town. We suggest you top with grilled onions, peppers, and spicy mustard for best results.


Visiting in the spring? Smoked turkey might be your best bet. Head to the Honobia Creek to nab one of your own, then smoke it for the full experience. Note: individual cabins are outfitted differently, so best to bring your own smoker if you want something with bells and whistles.

Ready to relax with a meal fit for a king? Pick up a choice USDA cut in town, then grill the steaks to perfection on one of the infrared grills found in many of McCurtain County’s luxury cabins. Head this way to browse listings.

Want to close out summer with an all-American meal? What’s better for a lake weekend than hamburgers and hot dogs? Add an egg to jazz it up, or browse some of our other favorite recipes for cabin burgers.


Let’s be honest: it wouldn’t be a beast feast without bacon. Get your daily dosed with crab-filled, bacon-wrapped jalapeño poppers. Slice the jalepeños in half, remove the seeds, and fill each with a mixture of cream cheese, lump crab, and cheddar cheese. Wrap with bacon and secure with a toothpick, then grill over the flame. A word of advice: double the recipe. These babies go fast.
