Grill Power

June 24, 2020

Hey Grill Hey fans, do I have an announcement for you! It’s been a long time coming, but I’m beyond excited to announce the premier of my Food Network show: Grill Power!

Grill Power on Food Network

That’s right. My own grilling show on Food Network is premiering THIS WEEK. If you’ve been following along with Hey Grill Hey these last 5 years, and you enjoy my recipes and videos, you’re going to love the show. It’s been a long time coming, and I can’t wait to continue to share my BBQ goodness with all of you.

The show features the same goals we focus on here at Hey Grill Hey, namely, helping you feed the people you love with good food so you can feel like a backyard BBQ hero. The show will bring you along with me as I cook good food for my family and friends.

Episode One: Steak & Cake

In this special episode, my daughter, Autumn is turning 11 years old. Now in my family, we celebrate birthdays BBQ style, with a tradition I like to call “Steak & Cake.” We’re celebrating with giant Tomahawk ribeye steaks that are beyond impressive and will feed a birthday crowd. But that’s not all! Autumn’s favorites are on the menu, including grilled corn salad, candied sweet potato stacks, and her grandfather’s secret recipe for red velvet cake with ermine frosting.

This is a series you don’t want to miss! Tune in to Food Network this Saturday to hang with me and the fam and snag some amazing BBQ recipes, tips, and tricks as well.

Here is a quick list of the recipes I cooked on the premiere episode! The red velvet cake was supposed to hit the Food Network site (so it isn’t on mine!) If they don’t release it soon, I’ll share it on my site. It has been heavily requested!

Prep Time : 30 mins
Cook Time : 35 mins
Cooling Time : 1 hr
Total Time : 2 hrs 5 mins
Servings : 12 people


  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 Tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 oz red food coloring
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Ermine Frosting

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • Preheat oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Make the Cake Batter. Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl. Add the eggs, one at a time beating well. Mix together the dry ingredients and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine the buttermilk, vanilla and food coloring. Alternate adding the dry and wet ingredients to the creamed butter until conetely incorporated. Dissolve the soda in the vinegar and stir into the batter. Pour the batter into two 9-inch sprayed or buttered and floured cake pans. Bake in a preheated 350* oven for 30-35 minutes.
  • Prepare cake pans. Cut 2 rounds of parchment paper to fit inside 2 9-inch cake pans. Spray the pans with cooking oil and dust each with flour, shaking out any excess. Pour the cake batter evenly between the two pans.
  • Bake the red velvet cakes. Place each cake pan onto the center rack of your oven, close the door, and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until an internal thermometer reads 195-200 degrees F (this is the perfect baked temperature for moist cakes). Remove from the oven and cool completely before carefully turning the pans over and removing the cakes.
  • Make the Ermine Frosting. In a medium sized saucepan, heat the milk, flour, salt and sugar, over medium high heat. Bring to a boil while whisking consistently until the paste reaches the consistency of pudding. Set aside and let cool completely. In a mixing bowl, whip the butter until smooth and slightly lightened in color. Beat in the cooled milk mixture along with the vanilla. The frosting should puff up and become silky smooth.
  • Frost the cake. Place one cooled cake round down on your serving platter. Top with half of the frosting and smooth with a spatula. Place the second cake round centeres on top of the first. Top with the remaining frosting and decorate as desired.

    Best of luck to you and your family.

  53. I just watched it! I’m disappointed though because they don’t have your recipes from the show online yet? Will they be posted? I want to make the sweet potato stacks and also the grilled corn salad! You did awesome and I look forward to future shows!

  54. Just watched the pilot and loved it! Question: can I find the red velvet recipe anywhere? In the episode it doesn’t state how much flour, cocoa powder and salt to mix together. Thanks!


    Hello. I watched your “Steak and Cake” episode and loved it!
    In spite of the main course recipes and technique’s, I was intrigued by the Red Velvet cake and icing. Is there some where I can find your recipes to this Episode 1?
    Please let me know.
    Thank you.

  56. I watched your show this morning and followed you on FB. I will look for other sites to follow you on!! I LOVED YOUR SHOW!!! FANTASTIC!! You have a beautiful family! I can’t wait to try your recipes and watch all your shows!! Congratulations!

  57. Please share the red velvet cake recipe! Want to make it today after seeing your great show and it isn’t in food network! Loved the pilot!!! Going to get the steaks now

  58. I just happened to be flipping through the tv channels today when I came across your show. I will be honest and say that this was the first time I had heard of you but you now have a loyal follower. I can’t wait to try your recipes!! Best of luck to you, your family and your new tv show!!
    P.S. It would be nice if you mentioned once or twice during your show where people can find the recipes your are making. That way people don’t have to try and frantically write down recipes as you are making them. If you don’t, then at least say the amount as you are making a recipe or else have ingredients and amounts listed on the tv screen.

  59. Love the show-I’m a new fan!
    Question: Will you be sharing the Red Velvet Cake and Ermine frosting? It looks amazing!

  60. Congratulations on your show! Saw it this AM , love seeing the beautiful Utah mountains- as I’m born/ raised there but live in Hawaii – plan to try every single recipe! Thank you for sharing your family story along with your recipes… mahalo

  61. First time to your blog, tuned in to your show this morning and loved it! I hope to see more of you on Food Network!

  62. What fun! I was watching the Food Network this morning and your show came on. Great to see my beloved Wasatch Mountains in your backyard. I spent my childhood in Pleasant Grove. Your food looked delicious! Just a tidbit…you said Footloose was filmed at the mill in Lehi, actually it was filmed at the old Geneva plant that used to be in Vineyard before it was torn down….my Dad worked there for many years. Good luck on your new venture!!

  63. ♥️ Your show!!! I want to see more episodes please. I was sad to see there were no upcoming episodes.

  64. Great first episode. We are trying the candied sweet potato stacks tonight. And I’m definitely going to start using your butter trick under the finished steak while it rests. I love that you grilled over charcoal and not on a pellet grill. The only way to go. Have you ever considered trading out the Weber kettle to a PK Grill. They are the Cadillac of charcoal grills. Unmatched heat retention and longevity. Keep up the great work.

  65. We LOVED your first episode, and needless to say – the DVR is programmed so we don’t miss any! Congratulations, and you were the perfect food show hostess!

  66. As someone who’s tasted Susie’s cooking first hand back before Hey Grill, Hey was even a thought, I’m sooooo excited to see this! Hands down Susie is the best. Bring on more fooooooooooood!

  67. Stumbled across your show and in 5 mins I set my DVR to record all your shows. Your Red Velvet cake recipe reminds me of how a dear friend from Guam used to make her’s, right down to the frosting.

  68. We loved your show Susie and can’t wait to watch more!! You were fantastic and your food looks to die for. After we watched, my son requested the Red Velvet Cake! I made it today and can’t wait to try, it is beautiful…but I had to look up another recipe for Ermine frosting because your instructions were confusing. I started it your way and added the sugar to the stove mixture…which I don’t think is right so I threw it out and started over making it with no sugar. You cream the sugar with the butter. Then in your instructions there was no place to add the vanilla – so I referenced a different recipe and saw to add it after you remove your pudding mixture from the stove. Hope this helps someone else or you can update it.

    1. Hey Stephani- You are totally correct! There was a misprint in the recipe card referencing sugar twice. I’ve updated it with how I make the frosting. I’m so sorry!

  69. My husband and I happened to be watching Food Network last weekend when your show premiered and we loved it! Woke up to watch it today and it’s not on. Do you know when your next episode will air? ❤️

  70. Loved your show. So disappointed I couldn’t find it this weekend. Was looking forward to another episode!

  71. Loved your first of what I hope is many episodes! Where is number two?!! I’ll be watching!!

  72. Susie,

    You are awesome. I have been rooting for you for a long time. Not only do I love your recipes, but you make them so easy to understand. Doing your Texas brisket tonight…my first brisket! Scared to death, but I have read your instructions and watched your informative video. When will we have more shows?
