I don't have pics of it but, my parents and I grilled 4 ribeyes and I made some American - or homestyle, whatever one wishes to call them- garlic and herb fries. Had 4 different spices combos to try and and they each received a different one.

1. Garlic and herb
2. Tucson garlic
3. 6 pepper
4. Rosemary and sage (I think)

Nossir, no diet here.
When I need to lose a couple I just work and work out longer
Yesterday the wife took the grand baby and one of the boyz to see Cinderella (he did not like it) the other boy went to a monster truck show and I was left to my own devices. I got in watching Nova science shows, then realized it was too late to brew or stew up anything. So I broke out a bog of those girly-girl air chips. Ate the whole bag and afterward I, 1. wondered what just happened, and 2. Was not filled up at all!

Omnitrition. She lost 45lbs in the first 45 days. I would much rather post up pics of the awesome food I normally make, but this is working for both of us, so in that sense I love it. This is my cauliflower crust pizza. No it doesn't taste like cauliflower, no it's not quite normal pizza, but yes it does taste awesome for what it is.

That's awesome, and congrats on you and your wife's success. I asked about Medifast because that's what I do (on and off)... I lost 40 lbs last year. Back up about 15, so need to buckle down again.

The "lean and green" dinners look really familiar  ;D

Will have to look into Omnitrition too. That pizza looks great though!! Mind sharing the recipe?

Well tonight is rehydrate and eat up night. I've been out n the bus for the last five days and I'm down on water and food.
So, a few pieces of fried chicken, a couple pounds of hot wings and some fries.
A gallon or two of water and then we'll see how I feel.

Been on the skidoo since 10:00 this morning, little to drink, none to eat, yeah should plan better, but we had all kinds of rain, and 50 ish degree weather yesterday, so it was just git 'er dun today.

Smoked/Grilled Corned Beef
The Glaze:
 2 TBS light brown sugar
 4 TBS Prepared yellow mustard
 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
 1 tsp diced onion
 1/2 tsp garlic powder
Soak two hours in warm water to remove some of the salt. Use the water to cook the vegies 
 Had to use a gas grill as that was what we had. wrapped wood chips in foil and set on burner shield. Indirect heat with pan of apple cider and water below the beef. This was after about 1/2 hour.

Know what, maybe this summer, if things in my life calm down by then, we and the other guys on here from Western Wa and others that wanted to attend could get together for a meet and greet PICNIC. Get a couple smokers and grills heated up and enjoy. Must be a nice park somewhere close to center of us that could handle a small group.

I put a 5lb chuck roast on the smoker this morning at 0630, smoking at 225deg for 3 hours and then going in the cast iron dutch oven at 225deg until done.

First stab at pizza dough. Got a new stand mixer. ( red of course) and a pizza stone.  I gave it a B.  Too much sauce and too many ingredients and I needed the oven a bit hotter. 
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight

Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: TexasRedNeck on March 29, 2015, 11:50:30 AM
Thanks.  It tasted fine just not that super crispy crust.  I had the oven on 450 and I needed to bump it to 550 (max) and let the stone come up to full temp after the kids pizza.  I'm ordering a pizza peel too since sliding pizza onto the stone is a challenge.  It was round before I tried to pull it off the board on to the stone.  More to come.  Also going to work on some bread recipes courtesy of my mom, who is a great bread maker.

so here are a few pics of the mouthwatering smoked chuck roast.  I started this at 0630 this morning, the smoke got shut off at 1030-1100, finished cooking in the pot until 1600 (mountain time).  good smoke ring and I finally learned about the coveted blue smoke!

1. the rolls that tracey did to make chuck roast sammies

2. the bacon wrapped potatos

3. the chuck roast after 3 hrs of smoke and going into the pot.

4. the chuck roast smoke ring

5. plated and ready to eat!

You boys can cook!

No pics but I made up a pot of spaghetti. used garlics, green peppers, shrooms, salt, peper, a few shots of red hot sauce, and some chipotle infused olive oil. Simmered it for about an hour, served over a bed of rice noodles with a slab of parmesan cheese topped Texas Toast.

Not in your guys league, but it got the job done!

I'm moving to el paso.

It's work. grated head of cauliflower into rice sized pieces, blended w/ mozzarella and parmesan, garlic powder and Italian seasoning. The grated cauliflower gets cooked off in the microwave and then used a tea towel to squeeze out the extra water. mixed in the above mentioned and added a couple eggs till I got a decent texture, and about a 1/4 cup of coconut flour. I'll get the whole recipe posted up when I get home from work, but you take that mix, form bread shaped pieces on parchment, bake it off at 425* for about 15 min until golden, cool, and then assemble and grill as you would with any grilled cheese.

I'm doing the Omnitrition program. went from 193-168.2 in 21days. I'm on the way more fun maintenance phase now, but still zero carbs or sugars or processed meats. my wife lost 61lbs since Christmas.

And you'd still be 745 miles away from Houston....rofl

Coincidence, I'm having pork loin with my parents tonight as well. Bought a couple big ones, and cut them into smaller chunks, then liberally seasoned them and vacuum sealed them and put them in the freezer.

I don't believe it was concerning food! I just got back from a week "vacation" to southern Mississippi so I'll post up a recipe my cousin gave me for Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti when I catch up on my sleep, or more realistically, when I find it in my pack.

Well we're at the cabin, and the service is sketchy, so I can't do pics.

Last night we had a delicious Walleye au Gratin.
Couple pounds cubed walleye
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
Salt and pepper to taste
Shredded cheese
1 medium onion diced
3/4 cup milk

Spray 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray.
Add cubed walleye, onion and salt and pepper.
Sprinkle a generous coating of cheese on top.

Melt butter and mix in flour on low heat.
Add milk slowly to avoid lumps and heat to thicken.
Once it has warmed and thickened some pour over pan.
Depending on how much you are making you may have to make more sauce.

Place in 350 oven for 30 minutes.
Remove and add cheese for topping.
Return to oven for another 10-15 minutes to melt and brown cheese.

Enjoy!

How do you get fresh veggies so far away from built up areas that would have grocery stores?
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight

If we want good fresh veggies we have to import them. The local store seems to get the bottom of the barrel so to speak. Buy today, rotten tomorrow.
And heck, I'm not that far from civilization.  8)

BBQ Beer can chicken and garlic sweet potatoes.
Made up a rub of 4 TBSP Montreal Steak Spice, 2 TBSP seasoning salt, 1 TSP oregano, and 1 TSP basil. Mixed with a couple TBSP olive oil to form a sticky rub.
This makes more than needed, use as required.
Drink half of the beer you will be donating to the cause.
I use one of the beer can holders available in many stores.
Place in a 9x13 or suitable pan to contain the grease and place bird over beer can.
We had about a six pound bird, covered completely with the spice rub.

Preheat BBQ to 350 or so, and place on grill. You want to cook on indirect heat.
My grill has 4 burners, so I use the two outside for heat, and two inner off with bird above. In about an hour and a half the chicken was cooked. Cooking time will vary with bird size and grill temp. Check with a thermometer in the thickest parts of the breasts and thighs to ensure it is cooked.
Cubed up the yams, and boiled. Added one whole bulb of garlic, cloves peeled.
Boil until cooked, drain and mash.

Easter dinner with my in-laws. Cyndie's dad is Egyptian Coptic, (read catholic cranked up to max volume) so it was a big day for them. Did this 9lb leg of lamb from Sylvana Meats with garlic slices stuffed into the meat and rubbed with oregano, rosemary, thyme, lemon zest, sea salt and black pepper and olive oil. Cooked to med rare around 2.5hrs and served with mashed potatoes, roasted broccoli with cheese and almond crust cheese cake. Can't tell you when I've had so many positive things said about my cooking from him. Apparently I did better than his mother.  8)

I can imagine your taste buds were yearning for some good old American hog after a while. I do Lamb pretty spaced out since it's gamey and the family balks, but wild duck, smoked Canadian goose breast, or pan roasted quail and pheasant are what I would eat every day given the chance. some rabbit on the weekends would make me smile.

we conducted some gluttonous operations on this here pork butt this afternoon.  this was our late brunch/dinner meal.

it was set overnight with a general rub mixture, smoked and shredded.  there was no "sauce" applied to this, but what we did was go the old school Tennessee route and used this here recipe.  it was then platted on a fresh deli bun with some pepper jack cheese.

1 Tbs Crushed Red Pepper
1 Tbs of Brown Sugar
1 Tsp of Black Ground Pepper
1 Tsp of Kosher Salt
1 Cup of White Vinegar
1 Cup of Apple Cider Vinegar

So I'd mentioned the smoke prime rib I did for our staff Christmas party before, finally have a couple pics uploaded.

I first made small knife cuts between each bone on all four sides and slipped a clove of garlic in. I then did a dry rub, consisting of Montreal Steak spice, garlic powder and pepper.

(http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/m605/sammconn/food/IMG_1222.jpg) (http://s1134.photobucket.com/user/sammconn/media/food/IMG_1222.jpg.html)

I then braised them in the oven at 450 for about 20 minutes to start to caramelize the fats, and sear the roasts.

(http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/m605/sammconn/food/IMG_1223.jpg) (http://s1134.photobucket.com/user/sammconn/media/food/IMG_1223.jpg.html)

Didn't take any pictures until about 4-5 hours later when they were done.
Kept the smoke rolling heavy for the bulk of the cook time, ad called them done at 145 internal.
They were a perfect rare in the center, and towards medium or a touch more at the ends.

Unfortunately I neglected to take cut pictures, but the smoke ring was beautiful, the roast was among the best I'd and several had ever had.

Last week, pulled out some salmon filets and fired up the smoker again.

Real simple, light coating of brown sugar, and lemon slices.

(http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/m605/sammconn/food/IMG_1482.jpg) (http://s1134.photobucket.com/user/sammconn/media/food/IMG_1482.jpg.html)

Into the smoker, and added the chips.
Cooked the fillets for around the 45 minutes to an hour.

(http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/m605/sammconn/food/IMG_1483.jpg) (http://s1134.photobucket.com/user/sammconn/media/food/IMG_1483.jpg.html)

Fillets finished, small batch of bannock frying in oil as a side.

(http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/m605/sammconn/food/IMG_1484.jpg) (http://s1134.photobucket.com/user/sammconn/media/food/IMG_1484.jpg.html)

I don't go by temperature with fish, just by eye.
As the fish become cooked, the proteins start to break down and form a white jelly like 'stuff'.

I make my bannock on the sweeter side generally, not quite like a doughnut, but a little sweet.

1 cup flour
2 tsp. baking powder
3 Tbsp. sugar.
approximately 1 cup of water (not necessarily all of it)
Mix and knead like bread, should be a bit softer than bread dough.
let it rest for a half hour or so to let the baking powder work a bit. ( makes it light and fluffy)
separate into a few pieces, pat flat 3/8"or so.
into hot oil or shortening until golden brown, flip repeat and done.

(http://i1134.photobucket.com/albums/m605/sammconn/food/IMG_1365.jpg) (http://s1134.photobucket.com/user/sammconn/media/food/IMG_1365.jpg.html)

Top with a touch of butter while warm if you desire.
If you cut the sugar back, or out, you could then go to a jam/jelly of some sort.
It's almost too sweet with the sugar in it to add more from the preserves.

tracey is the one that makes the brine,

1 gal water
1 C salt
1 C sugar
- some whole peppercorns
1 orange quartered (1-2 pieces stuck in the cavity)
1-2 limes quartered (1-2 pieces stuck in the cavity)

if I remember correctly I think she uses less salt?  I am sure there is something else in there, but I know that is just the basics I see in the pot when I take the bird out and empty it.

not really dinner but more breakfast.

I sprinkled a little cheese on to a small warm flour tortilla, fried up an egg (with the yoke was just a little runny, yum) placed it on top of the cheese, warmed up some pulled pork, wixed it with some of the mustard sauce and!

Well, I've been keeping track of serving size,calories,fat(s), carbs,sodium and et al... So I usually have it for breakfast at 0030 -0100 along with my coffee. But I space the bagel cream cheese days out. But I always have some sort of breakfast sandwich... just starts the day out on a good foot.

Post by: Nate on June 02, 2015, 07:49:57 PM
so this may start a little strange for some, but I just had a foodgasm in my mouth with the dinner my wife and I cooked this evening.  also, you can beat me up for not taking pics.  truly I didn't think it would have been any different from the last times that I we have cooked these, but for what ever reason I used my char griller smoker, bumped it to 350deg and put them on for 12-14 minutes (depending on how you like them in the middle).

here is the recipe for the burger meat:

1. 1 pound 80-20 beef
2. 1 pound sausage
3. chopped onions
4. chopped jalapenos
5. bread crumbs
6. 1 egg
7. a bit of molasses

1. these were formed and then chilled for about 30 minutes (this should make 4 good size burgers!)
2. put on 350deg smoker for 12-14 minutes
3. placed on a toasted crustini bun
4. a slice of tomato
5. a couple of thin sliced red onion rings
6. condiment of choice

note: (I am a true cheese head and eat as much cheese when and as often as I can) we actually forgot to put cheese on these and didnt even realize it until we were cleaning up and tracey was making my lunch for tomorrow with some of the left overs

I also forgot that tracey has done up some bacon for them as well.


Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Nate on June 04, 2015, 07:51:09 PM
so this evening we had some smoke petite sirloins and some true homemade from scratch beans.

I will post the beans recipe and pics in the beans sticky when I get them from tracey later this evening.

so here is a little glimpse of whats for dinner tonight.

we are going to start off with some blackeyed pea salad.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Two 15 1/2-ounce cans black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
6 slices cooked applewood smoked bacon, roughly chopped
4 scallions, sliced
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 small red onion, diced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 scallions, chopped, for garnish
(my addition) 1/2 can rotel hot

Directions:

Make the vinaigrette by combining the oil, vinegar, sugar and mustard. Whisk well and then add in the black-eyed peas. Fold in the bacon, scallions, bell peppers and onions. Season well with salt and pepper. Garnish with the chopped scallion. Refrigerate until ready to serve

(http://i.imgur.com/Katvf9A.jpg)

this recipe is courtesy of guy fieri.  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy-fieri/black-eyed-pea-salad-with-bacon.html

once all that was prepped and assembled and put in the fridge to chill, I pulled out a chicken that tracey butchered up the other day and coated the 8 pieces (both sides) with a little olive oil and some head country bbq seasoning.  then it was off to the other fridge to chill out, relax and soak up some of that flavor in to the meat.  it will be put on the smoker at 325deg and kept there for about 1-1.5hrs.  it will also get coated with some sauce about 20 minutes before its done.

so I read a bunch of garbage that said you cant do pizza on a smoker!

well I beg to differ and I have the pics to prove it.  I turned my pellet smoker to 450deg and they were in for 10 min and came out perfect.  there was no burn on the crust or on the bottom.

here is a BBQ chicken pizza made from last nights left over BBQ chicken, it also has saut?ed onions and mushrooms with some BBQ Sauce

and just to note, my pizza stone did not crack.  I have heard too many people say that it will crack in a smoker.  well I say, you either had a defective stone or you did not treat it/season it properly.

so tracey made some Cornish game hens in the cast iron pan and cooked them on the smoker this evening.

she used this video as the basis for her recipe:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okUVmGKKSL8

and here is how they turned out

(http://i.imgur.com/Fvr0hmQ.jpg)

they went for 90-120 minutes at 350deg

she also has apple crisp in the cast iron dutch oven for a late night dessert.

so tonight is going to be a bit of an experiment.  I am taking some of tracey's burger meat.  rolled it out on a sheet of butcher paper/wax paper, put some pepperoni and some shaved turkey breast on, sprinkled some cheese and painted it with mustard sauce (the recipe is posted).  it is currently sittin in the deep freezer for about 45-60 min.  it will come out, get rolled and put on the smoker at 225 for about 1-2 hrs or until the internal temp is like 175 deg.

burger meat ingredients: bread crumbs, pork sausage, ground beef 80/20, jalapeno's, onions, molasses, spices.

oh there is cheese in there, its sprinkle cheese mixed thru all of the ground meat.

and here is the conclusion of the cook.  it took about 1.5 hrs.  I did 45min @ 225deg smoke and 45 @ 350deg.  I pulled at 165deg internal temp.

well today we have a 11lb choice packer going on for fathers day (by the way, happy fathers day to you all).  this is what tracey got me for fathers day.  it has been rubbed down with a little seasoning, refrigerated over night and just went on the smoker at 225deg at 0730 this morning mountain time.  ken, you have about 8 hours to get here if you are wanting some of this Q......;D

there wont be many pictures, because the smoker will not get opened but maybe 3 times thru out the cook.

What internal temp do you pull it?

LOVE brisket sandwichs, especially with some burnt ends mixed in. Side of potato salad and beans and everything is leaning towards the awesome side.
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Nate on June 21, 2015, 08:24:55 PM
alright folks, here are the results of the smoke.

the burnt ends were pretty good, and the flat was not bad.  all in all it was a good attempt and lessons were learned.  The flat could have been cooked a little longer as it was just a tad chewy and the moisture content was there.  next time, the flat will get cooked a bit longer.

in the last picture you can see the juice from the flat, that was put into a pot and rendered down a good bit.  that juice will be cooled, fat scraped from it and then frozen.  the next brisket that get made will have that injected into it.

rasimmo, it was cooked with the fat cap down so that it acts like a bit of a barrier.  the fat cap almost protects the meat from direct heat .  cap up, cap down, 6 one way, 1/2 dozen the other............? 
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: rasimmo on June 21, 2015, 08:37:30 PM
Thanks, sounds good to me. I built a reverse flow so there isn't really any direct heat. I try to pull my flat at 195 internal temp. Just firm enough to carve, but melts in your mouth. This makes me want to fire up the smoker. 3 weeks ago I did 5 briskest and 6 butts for a company function. That was fun.

honestly don, i couldnt really tell you one way or the other on how the center of the cut should be.  it has been years since i actually did one.  rasimmo or kyle, what are your comments on this?
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Dawg25385 on June 22, 2015, 11:06:10 AM
Chewy? Not done yet! I always do fat side up, also... that way it self bastes as the fat liquefies.

Packers are difficult, because of the uneven thickness... flat on one end, flat with point on the other. You jumped right to the big leagues didn't you! I admire your ambition! I did a 16 lb packer one time... almost 20 hrs in the cooker if i remember correctly.

You should be able to do the pull test on brisket... when sliced against the grain, you should be able to pull a strip and have it stretch to see all the webbing of the connective tissue, and then rip without too much effort. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9Jp57Hn27A It's one of the criteria for judging also... I'm a PNWBA certified judge  ;D I've only judged a couple times tho, really only did it to learn how to cook better.
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Nate on June 22, 2015, 11:50:04 AM
i figured out where i screwd up.  my probe read 195 IT but i forgot about "probe tenderness".  sad thing is that i knew that and had planned for that, but when it came to that point i had a brain fart and forgot it.  well when payday rolls around, looks like i am getting another packer and giving it another shot.  i may be a jack of all trades, master of none.  but ill be damned if i will let a piece of meat kick my butt.

you keep talking like that kyle, you and tate will have to come to OR when i get there and ill make yah all some good southern Q.
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Dawg25385 on June 22, 2015, 12:00:43 PM
Sounds like a good time to me!  ;D  ;D  ;D

Hey wanted to pass a quick recommendation also, in the "tools of the trade" column...

These are what i use, and in my opinion are one some of the best in BBQ. Temp monitoring in BBQ is critical, and good thermo's makes it much more enjoyable.

Maverick ET073 dual probe remote thermometer... meat probe, and ambient temp probe, remote with timers and alarms... Very accurate, and very reliable.
http://www.amazon.com/Maverick-Remote-Smoker-Thermometer-ET-73/dp/B0000DIU49

Thermapen... absolutely the best instant-read thermometer on the market. Highly recommend this thermo, spendy, but worth it.
http://www.thermoworks.com/products/thermapen/
EDIT: Oh this is freakin cool... they have a limited edition multicam one with a pic of Old Glory on it... http://www.thermoworks.com/products/thermapen/splashproof_thermapen_limited_edition.html

I always use the Maverick on long smokes, but use the Thermapen to verify internal temps throughout the cut before calling it "done"... With a remote probe, it's super easy to find a streak of fat, or bone if you're bone it, that can affect your true temp reading. So lets say i'm smoking a brisket to 195-200, i use the remote probe to get me close, to say 190... and then use the Thermapen from there to finish.

Thermapen is particularly handy when smoking chicken, where precise temps in and around bone are important, and where the risk of overcooking and drying out are greater.

Just a friendly "gear recommendation"... feel free to take it or leave it!! :D
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Nate on June 22, 2015, 12:42:23 PM
good stuff.  when i get some time, i will do a thread in the equipment section and list this stuff.

Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: rasimmo on June 22, 2015, 01:19:30 PM
Chewy could be not done yet, smoker temp too high so it cooked too fast, or overdone if it is dried out. Everybody says brisket is the hardest thing to smoke, but ribs are my arch enemy. I get them right from time to time, but never consistent.

That Maverick is a great thermo. I like the alarms on the receiver for long smokes. I use it to wake me up from a little nap when it's time to throw another chunk of wood in the fire box.
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight

so here is whats for dinner tonight.

1 pkg jimmy dean sausage
1 8oz cream cheese
1 cup parmesan cheese
20 jalapeno peppers halved and scraped of seeds and membrane.
425deg for 20 plus  minutes or until they start to brown

I did them in the smoker.

on top of that we are having brisket burnt end sandwiches from the brisket last weekend.  by the way, who can say that they still own and operate one of those dishes that the burnt ends are being re-heated in........?

I have a remote thermometer as well although a different brand....can't remember which one but so great to be able to set it and go do other things. So nice to be able to check the grille temp too. And the digital instant thermometers are key as well.

A great use for some of the burnt ends is in baked beans. Really adds to the flavor.  That is if you can keep from eating them all as you make the beans. Not that I would know anything about that.....  ::)

Favorite cut pork steak (ribeye chop for me)
I've done with venison loin also! Fantastico!

Equal parts bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese on a plate for breading salt and pepper to taste

Olive oil in a bowl

Lightly coat chop in oil then toss in breading

Place in a glass dish in the oven 350 for 30 mins

Pull out, pour on your fav Italian red sauce (homemade or store bought) sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top and lightly dust with parsley flakes.

Back in the oven for 10-15 then voila(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/07/02/61643d2eab41d1262c7e0d2db780c552.jpg)

Agreed on the Curry... When I was at KKMC in Saudi they always made these lavish meals for us. (You know how Saudis like to prove how rich they are) One common theme in every dish was guts and curry.... I just couldn't stomach it... I lived that whole summer on combos, nature valley granola bars and Rip it energy drinks... Occasionally I ate the rice... I always felt like our Saudi comrades were over in their chow hall eating the good parts of the goat and laughing at us.

Well again no pics, but on Saturday, my parents, nieces and I went to a new, small Soul Food Cafe here in GB. Had some amazing catfish,homemade mac n cheese, cornbread, sweet tea and sweet potato pie (1 of my 2 favorites pies). Afterwards, dad and I were talking to the owners and I mentioned I was torn between the pork chop sandwich with red beans and rice and the catfish I had ordered, she hooked it up with some free red beans and rice.

Yes it does, those red beans and rice tasted even better as free. I'm definitely going back for the pork chop sandwich and the bbq pork sandwich. 1 of those 2 will be had, along with a slice of pecan or sweet potato pie.

waiting on pics to be sent over from the wife, but dinner on Saturday was carne asada with fresh guac, flour tortillas, (gluten free for the wife), corn on the cob and Spanish rice. Dinner pic is here, but the leftovers w/ hash browns and jalepe?os in breakfast burritos were epic. Extra cheese and scrambled eggs, some of the leftover roasted jalepe?os, diced potato style hash browns, and  chopped up carne asada w/ tapatio.

I make chili powder about twice a year w/ dried poblanos, arbol, Anaheim, and guajillos. Toast em in cast iron dry and then blast em in the blender. you know it's ready when it starts to smell a little like coffe. That is about 70% the other is 10 10 10 lowry's, garlic powder, and paprika. That is in my shaker at all times for almost everything. really awesome on chicken with a little apple cider thinned catchup for basting.

I can get a non-commercial tag for (IIRC) $40. But then I would have to get the gear and a boat to haul them with! I paid 5.99 a lb for these. I like the steak better.

Yeah I hear ya. That's why I use a neighbor's boat and equipment. I'm basically another body in the boat for the limit increase, dedicated bait handler and pot puller, he pays for the gas equipment etc. $5.99/lb for that style vs Asian frozen spiney tails(what we get here) that cost me $5.99 for a 4oz tail only... no contest. and I'd take the steak 1st too

I owe the RM an apology. One of my finest creations yet on the mobile short order cooktop was eaten without a photo. 

Whole wheat bread grilled on both sides on the flat top with butter.  Miracle Whip with Tabasco mixed in, fresh tomato slices with salt and pepper, iceberg lettuce, 8 strips of hickory bacon in two layers strategically criss crossed, a fried egg with just a bit of ooze from the yolk, and melted cheddar.


Eaten in about 2 bites

I'd order one, but I'm a bit too far to get it. I'm at the cabin and out of bacon. ???
Not entirely sure how but been a zoo here for the past two weeks. Birthday, parents visit, friends visit etc, so I guess that's how I'm out of bacon.

I'm going to have to go get some now, because that is just too good looking not to eat.
And as a fellow bacon lover, I figured you'd jump on the challenge just to have another!

Last night grilled up some surf(Dungeness and prawns) and turf(well, kinda turf since chickens don't really fly) and here were the results. Roasted Brussels sprouts and asparagus with olive oil, salt & pepper and red chili flakes, cabbage and red onion slaw with mayo, lime juice, chili powder, Dungeness crap caught minutes before boiled w/ sea water and old bay, prawns with cilantro, lime, molasses, red wine vinegar and chili powder, and roasted garlic mashed Taters. (see what I did there?). Payment for the cat sitting our friends did for us while we were tubing the Wenatchee river this last weekend.

Marinate onions and red bell pepper in same.  Griddle the onions and peppers or foil packet over coals. Toast hoagie rolls ( we only had burger buns camping). Then use horse radish sauce. Enjoy.

Oh MAN that all looks good! I have hated Brussel sprouts all my life (used to call them my wife's "little stink bombs" until my daughter made roasted ones for me about a year ago....dang I am a convert! Mmmm good!

I was the same way, mom used to boil the devil out of them till they smelled up the whole house, then the texture was like hot lettuce; limp and nasty. Then I started watching cooking shows with the wife and found out about roasting them. Asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, are my 4 and 17 year olds' top favorite foods, not just veggies now. Amazing the difference technique makes.

Yup! That was what killed them for me.....walk into the house and instead of the nice aroma of a cooking meal I got overwhelmed with the cabbage stink! We routinely make roast veggies now, almost every meal. Our version will be whatever is in the fridge but usually brussell sprouts, onions, broccoli, asparagus, sweet potatoes, squash, the proverbial kitchen sink. I toss it with olive oil and sea salt....then when I put them in the pan I drizzle some balsamic vinegar on them. Mmmmm.

As an aside I have spent years cutting asparagus (we grew it when I was a kid which was awesome....cut some, rinse it and steam it all in about 5 minutes). But I just learned the best way to "prepare" asparagus (and if you already knew this sorry for the DOT)...but instead of cutting the spears I now grab the spear at the "half way" mark...then grab the cut end (the "woody section") and bend it until it breaks....it always breaks right at the end of the tough part leaving only the tender part. So much faster and also is idiot proof (which for me is a huge plus! ha! :o).

Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: EL TATE on August 06, 2015, 05:42:19 PM
Sounds like you know what you're doing there. I do the same but then cheat a little; grab a bunch, find the woody spot by bending/snapping, then just cut the rest off at the same spot which might waste some but usually gets it pretty close.

As a kid, we would head up to Lake Chelan every year at the opening of trout fishing season, (last week of april) and fish all morning, then head to the apple orchards and pick the wild growing asparagus growing near the tree roots. Trout and asparagus lunch, pan fried by grandma on the well seasoned cast iron and tossed the asparagus into the pan for the last couple seconds and steamed em up. Delicious memories.

Oh man that sounds good. I love trout....I go fishing in Maine every year and there is nothing like little stream caught wild brookies...a little corn meal....fried in a pan....put three or four between two slices of bread and eat them bones and all....mmmm. if I'd had asparagus with em? Died and gone to heaven! Ha! We had fiddle heads which were good but can be a little more bitter than asparagus. The idea of wild asparagus is great!

Oven cooked bacon-
Place on parchment paper lined pan into a cold oven set to 400. Pull out when approprately crispy to your taste...

I'm not gonna lie, I ate the whole pan and the oatmeal. Bacon, it's the Chuck Norris of the food group! And it only counts as a serving of it makes it to the table. (Standing at counter eating, scrolling RMTWS)

The good part of that breakfast is the oatmeal should counter the bacon.
Apparently one of the benefits of home cooked oatmeal is it helps lower cholesterol.

And yes bacon consumed at the counter or from the pan never existed.
But when a pound of bacon yields 6 pieces you've been caught.

Truth is- what we have been led to believe by the FDA about animal fats is BS. They would rather see you consume a half pound of processed government cheese than to drink milk direct from the cow. Because it's "safer" for us. They would just assume you ingest pounds hyperprocessed chemicals like aspartame, MSG and HFCS, than eat honey from the hive or pure sugar cane in moderation! It's ok to feed your kid a package of hot dogs but by golly you should trim your steak! You can have bonded chemical pain inhibitors and anti depressants or drink a case of beer, but you can't smoke a ... Well you get the picture! Frustrating... Do some non main stream research on cholesterol... It's not that bad, it's the inflammation in our arteries caused by all the other crap we consume that kills us.

True^^^^

I realized some time ago the FDA is not our friend, but part of a system along with Monsanto and the likes to keep Americans sick and on the till. That leads to money at big pharma and of course insurance.

We'd be far better off doing it ourselves than trusting in the status quo.

I have been seeing healings in church that defy logic and puzzle physicians. I think there is a lot to be learned through the study of natural ways and how things were done in the past

White bread: Poison

Ever read in the bible about Ezekiel bread?

I eat the stuff, and by golly I think it made me into the pretty man I am today! ;-))

Ezekiel 4:9
Bread. And Better!?
Ezekiel 4:9 products are crafted in the likeness of the Holy Scripture verse Ezekiel 4:9 to ensure unrivaled honest nutrition and pure, delicious flavors.

"Take also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils and millet, and spelt and put them in one vessel?" Ezekiel 4:9

It?s this special, unique combination of 6 grains and legumes that harvests benefits beyond what we normally expect from our breads, pastas, cereals, and other foods.

Source of Complete Protein - Rated 84.3% as efficient as the highest source of protein (comparable to that of milk or eggs)
Contains 18 Amino Acids - Including all 9 essential amino acids

Increased Digestibility - Sprouting breaks down starches in grains into simple sugars so your body can digest them easily.
Increased Absorption of Minerals ? Sprouting breaks down enzyme inhibitors, so your body can more easily absorb calcium, magnesium, iron, copper and zinc.
Increased Vitamin C - Sprouting produces vitamin C.
Increased Vitamin B - Sprouting increases the vitamin B2, B5 & B6.
Great source of Fiber - Combining sprouted grains and legumes gives a good amount of natural fiber in each serving

Yes

Go to the health food section and look for Ezekiel bread, you'll find it

I heat it, smear on real butter and strawberry jelly and roll around on it for awhile

Good stuff, doesn't last long

Big Ag is all about shelf life so they waste less....so more preservatives, less natural stuff that can "go bad" which means they have to toss their product. Make your own bread, make you own pasta, it's pennies on the dollar and far healthier. Protein is best from animals (beef, pork and chicken). I always tell the crazy vegetarians that I will look to plants for protein when my eyes move to the sides of my head and my canine teeth fall out. Until then I'm not arguing with millions of years of evolution.

Years ago I saw that lying pos Dan Rather on the Tonight Show and he told a great story about his FIL....seems the FIL was a crusty old cattle rancher (from TX IIRC)...every year Dan and his wife would take him out for his bday to a restaurant. He ate steak pure and simple. Well on his 90th or so bday they took him out and he ordered a huge steak....the waitress asked what vegetables he wanted with it and his response was "Lil lady....vegetables are what food eats!". Always liked that line! Ha.

The good part of that breakfast is the oatmeal should counter the bacon.
Apparently one of the benefits of home cooked oatmeal is it helps lower cholesterol.

And yes bacon consumed at the counter or from the pan never existed.
But when a pound of bacon yields 6 pieces you've been caught.
I have experienced this. Butcher down the way from my place does home smoked applewood pepper crusted thick cut porcine gold! only get 8-12 slices per lb so when we only had 6 to go around...busted.

Topped with a generous portion of Franks extra hot and some salt and pepper, cause the franks doesn't have enough already. Lol.

(http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/09/10/827353d99360670a8682470192be01f4.jpg)

Served with green beans and some pasta,    The pork is the treat I tell you what

First you make a dressing of thyme, olive oil, Fresh  garlic,  some salt and some of the other smell good things that perky nose from the cabinet of deliciousness,
Preheat he oven to 500. Rub your pork with the paste like sauce.  Place in cooking pan of choice and let sit till oven is ready.
Sauce pan now.  Scoop some of your favorite jelly preserve. ( we have grape welches for the kids) about four big soup spoons.  Add four table spoons of red wine vinegar to the mix.   Now it calls for shallots but I never have any and this is where I open bottles and sniff them to see what smells good to me. 
Add a bit of this a bit of that and place all in the suace pan and heat it up.  Be careful it's a lot of sugar in there and that can burn nasty messy into a pan.  Now.  Place pork in oven for six min then remove and pour on your sauce pan and turn over your pork, Save enough sauce for round two and some to go in a dish on the table.  Back in the oven till  it reaches 150 inside temp then remove and add more sauce, let stand then slice and serve.

I think in the past I would cook it in the oven or the crockpot until it reaches that temp of 165 then pull it out. What I was forgetting was that meat continues to raise in temp and continues to cook after removed from the oven.  So now I pull mine at 145 and let it stand then I check its temp before cutting into it.  Usually pretty consistent with it now.

Its no salad but it is tasty.

Mushrooms sauteed in butter, olive oil and a garlic/pepper/salt mix. 2 small chicken breasts broiled with the gps mix. Rotini 1/2 wheat-1/2 egg. Chopped spinach for greens and cooked medium shrimp.

Sauce is made with whats left after the mushrooms are dumped into the shrimp. Then add more gps mix and extra ground pepper, 1 package of cheepo alfredo mix, little milk, little parmesan cheese and a nice scoop of cream cheese (this is what makes it) and simmer.

Funny thing is no one really likes it but me,takes a while to make so I don't make it often.

Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: TexasRedNeck on September 14, 2015, 08:56:31 AM
So Nate, if I am looking at their smokers correctly, they have a square firebox feeding the horizontal smoking pit pipe and then the reverse flow back into the top square box, where that top box can be used as a smoker or warmer based on whether the damper from the main smoke chamber is open or closed.  The main smoke chamber and the warmer box have their own stack.

The warmer chamber would get its smoke from the reverse flow of the main chamber but also use heat from the fire box below even though there is not a direct airflow, the warmer/smoker box would get radiated heat from the fire box.

Does that sound right?
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight

That's my understanding of how reverse flow cookers work RN... I know that's how the Lang's work.

Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Nate on September 14, 2015, 01:11:16 PM
rn, here is the answer from paul shirley the owner and manufacturer of the smoker in question.

Yes this is somewhat correct... The warmer get radiate heat from the firebox... Being the top of the firebox.. Is the bottom of the warmer .. We have a standard damper from main chamber to warmer.. When opened this allows additional heat and smoke into the warmer... You can get an upgrade... It is a damper from dirbox to warmer.. This allows you to get the warmer up even hotter .... ideally to use the warmer as a vertical cooker.... Hope this helps.... I will check.... The link out.... Thx

Sophie and me makin' apple crisp from the neighbor's tree during half time of the Hawk's/Lions game. We also did some deep fried Jalape?os with fresh pico de gallo and some salsa bake chicken breast w/ rice. No pics of those, but super easy; 4-6 frozen breasts in a casserole dish, cover with salsa of choice and bake at 375 for 45 min or until juices run clear. Stupid easy and very tasty.

She's all over anything I do. Cooks with me all the time and any time I'm working on the cars she's handing me screw drivers or looking for something to take apart. We make all of our lunches together at night and she has her little Hello Kitty lunch box that she packs up herself. She didn't actually like the apple crisp though, ironically.

Being that we are in full swing of harvest and the wife in the the grain cart our supper menu has been different.  We have to get everything ready in the morning before work. One day we just got a jar of canned meat out of the basement. Thats what it there for. Delicious. Then we got the crock pot out and made a roast the next morning. We were too tired to do much clean up that night was a long one. Next day I decided to put pork chops in the crock pot but it was still dirty and we are running late already.  Wife pulls out her spare. I knew there was a reason I keep her around. Pork chops with cream of mushroom soup over the top cooked on low for 13 hours. Didn't really even have to chew it. Kinda just fell apart. Tonight is going to be Mc Donalds. Have to go get the kids from my ex for the weekend.

I've already got the nightmares. She likes daddy's diesel a lot more than mommy's turbo Passat. She wants to be a cook or a doctor because she "likes to cut the meat". we'll be fishing soon and hunting soon I'm sure as she already knows you have to kill the chicken and the fish to eat them.

They'll still taste the same. Liberally dosed with a hot sauce of your choice and mixing some packets together makes a rather decent "stew."
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: BobbyB on October 18, 2015, 03:05:43 PM
So for dinner I'm making:

Pepper jack stuffed meatballs and spaghetti. I saw the recipe cross my wall on Facebook, so I decided to give it a shot. It came from the Facebook page "Tasty". It was originally Mozzarella stuffed meatballs, but I don't have Mozzarella; however I do have some pepper jack cheese. You have to cut the cheese into cubes, and form the meatball around them.

Recipe:
1 lb ground beef
1 lb hot Italian sausage
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp salt
1 tsp black pepper
1 cup bread crumbs (I used Italian bread crumbs, since that's what I had on hand)
1/4 cup Parmesan (I used shredded Parmesan, grated probably would work fine as well)
2 eggs
1/2 cup whole milk (I used skim)
1/2 cup Parsley

Put the tomato sauce of your choice or own design into a crock pot, layer meatballs and sauce. I added a liberal amount of Sriracha sauce to add some extra flavor and heat. Cook on high for 2 or 2.5 hours.

In accompaniment to the stuffed meatball spaghetti I'm having some garlic Naan bread. Not making this on my own, just using the package I picked up at the grocery store for somewhere around $3. Anyway, I'll update this on how it all turns out.

Darn guys, stop it!!

I am still thinking about the pork chops and mushrooms in the crock pot!!


Last night was simple, the wife and kids snacked at the mall, so I was left to my own;

I sliced up some fresh mushrooms and sauteed in garlic, butter, olive oil. Added chopped smoked ham and dumped it into scrambled eggs. Threw some chopped cilantro and sprinkled cheese and hot sauce over it all.

I was hunting with a friend on his 24,000 acre lease in South Texas this week.  He made some incredible fried chicken outside on a big burner with a turkey fryer type rig.  That and some home fries and a salad made for some happy hunters.  The next night we had ribeye steaks and baked potato and corn on the cob.  Steaks cooked over charcoal and pecan wood.

Hi Nate-

if you got a smart phone- good app for figuring all that out is: MyFitnessPal  -  you can enter recipes via ingredients which you can scan the UPC code on and it'll add it all up and divide by serving size (you set) and it'll break down all the nutrient info for you like your chart.  It also has many restaurants menu items already in the data base- works pretty good for the most part!

so I had a friend over tonight that is going thru a divorce here shortly and I thought I would break out some memorable food.

so tonight's menu consisted of beef fajita's on a flour tortilla with some sour cream, shredded cheese and a little homemade salsa.

Nate, LOVE the flat top.  Best thing EVER!  I have one and use it all the time.

As for the corn tortilla.  I wet paper towels and wring them out and then wrap a stack of 6 and microwave for about 25-30 seconds on high.  Creates steam and makes them pliable.....
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Nate on October 31, 2015, 10:38:45 PM
yeah I have tried that as well and found that they still split once they cool a bit.

I think that I will have to go to the local tortillaria and have them make some small flour mixed with corn tortilla's.

It's not really a recipe, as more of a leftover clean up. I was helping finish up some leftovers, and made a meatball sub and topped it with spicy chili. Surprisingly it was tasty.

Post by: Nate on November 07, 2015, 03:06:44 PM
since I have a lot of time on my hands today while doing the bacon and then the summer sausage after that, I decided to make Braciole for dinner.  I got the idea from here; http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/braciole-recipe.html

Braciole Stuffing Ingredients:
1. 1/2 cup dried Italian-style bread crumbs
2. 1 garlic clove, minced
3. 2/3 cup grated Pecorino Romano
4. 1/3 cup grated provolone
5. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
6. 4 tablespoons olive oil
7. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
8. 1 (1 1/2-pound) flank steak
9. 1 cup dry white wine
10. 3 1/4 cups Simple Tomato Sauce, recipe follows, or store-bought marinara sauce

Braciole assembly and cooking INST:
1. Stir the first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl to blend. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the oil. Season mixture with salt and pepper and set aside.

2. Lay the flank steak flat on the work surface. Sprinkle the bread crumb mixture evenly over the steak to cover the top evenly. Starting at 1 short end, roll up the steak as for a jelly roll to enclose the filling completely. Using butcher's twine, tie the steak roll to secure. Sprinkle the Braciole with salt and pepper.

3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

4. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a heavy large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the Braciole and cook until browned on all sides, about 8 minutes. Add the wine to the pan and bring to a boil. Stir in the marinara sauce. Cover partially with foil and bake until the meat is almost tender, turning the Braciole and basting with the sauce every 30 minutes. After 1 hour, uncover and continue baking until the meat is tender, about 30 minutes longer. The total cooking time should be about 1 1/2 hours.

5.Remove the Braciole from the sauce. Using a large sharp knife cut the Braciole crosswise and diagonally into 1/2-inch-thick slices.

6. Transfer the slices to plates. Spoon the sauce over and serve.



Simple Tomato Sauce Ingredients:
1. 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2. 1 small onion, chopped
3. 2 cloves garlic, chopped
4. 1 stalk celery, chopped
5. 1 carrot, chopped
6. 2 (32-ounce) cans crushed tomatoes
7. 4 to 6 basil leaves
8. 2 dried bay leaves
9. Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
10. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, optional

Simple Tomato Sauce Cooking INST:
1. In a large casserole pot, heat oil over medium-high heat.

2. Add onion and garlic and saut? until soft and translucent, about 2 minutes. Add celery and carrot and season with salt and pepper. Saut? until all the vegetables are soft, about 5 minutes.

3. Add tomatoes, basil, and bay leaves and reduce the heat to low. Cover the pot and simmer for 1 hour or until thick. Remove bay leaves and taste for seasoning. If sauce tastes too acidic, add unsalted butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, to round out the flavor. (be careful because the wine will give it a bit of a sweet flavor.)

4. Pour half the tomato sauce into the bowl of a food processor and process until smooth. Continue with remaining tomato sauce.

5. If not using all the sauce, allow it to cool completely and then pour 1 to 2 cup portions into plastic freezer bags. Freeze for up to 6 months.


I changed a few things like marinating the flank steak because of how tough it can be.

ill have some pics when I assemble the other half.

I came across a chili recipe this morning and thought I would give it a try.  since I am off today and felt really lazy I figured it was a good time to break out the cast iron frying pan and the 8QT crock pot.  ***WARNING, THIS WILL MAKE A FULL 8QT CROCK POT!***

Ingredients:

? 4 lbs ground beef
? 1 lbs hot sausage
? 2 stalks celery
? 1 green bell pepper
? 4 onions
? 1-15 oz can tomato sauce
? 4-5 cans 16oz cans stewed tomatoes
? 64 oz v8 juice( spicy if like)
? 1.5 t onion salt
? 3 t garlic powder
? 4 t cumin
? 3/4 t salt
? 3/4 t pepper
? 1 hot pepper
? 2 T red pepper seeds
? 6 T chili powder
? 1 t oregano
? 1 t brown sugar

Directions:

1.In a large skillet, medium heat saut? half of beef and half of sausage, drain and place in pot.

REPEAT UNTIL ALL THE MEAT IS BROWNED.
2. Sweat the Vegetables out in some extra virgin olive oil and Butter until soft
3. in large kettle mix tomatoes, juice, and tomato sauce to the vegetables. then add all the spices. Slowly add meat and stir until blended. Simmer slow and low for 2 hour approx. until thickened and flavors blended."

yeah I have tried that as well and found that they still split once they cool a bit.

I think that I will have to go to the local tortillaria and have them make some small flour mixed with corn tortilla's.

at the restaurant, I run the edges in vegetable oil and heat them up on the flat top. Mexican grandma showed me that one and it never fails. the oil cooks the edges a little to keep them from splitting.

Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Wilbur on November 15, 2015, 11:26:58 AM
Yep....doing just that.

I like the looks of that bracciole (sp?) recipe....I am thinking another way to do that is cook lesser amount of the sauce (or just save the extra)...cut them in thinner slices, layer on a sliced crusty roll, top with some of the sauce and a slice or two of provolone. Hmmmm.....

One recipe I always like to make is Shepherds Pie.  I always liked it as a kid but always had the basic version (ground beef, corn, mashed potatoes). The Cheesecake Factory has a better version and it kind of opened my eyes to the possibilities so now I do it with ground beef, a mix of veggies (corn, peas, roast veggies cut small) topped with mushroom gravy, then top it with gyarlic mashed potatoes topped with parmesan cheese. I can make it up ahead of time for dinner, put some in individual serve Tupperware or whatever.

I am not so creative to come up with new stuff on my own but once someone shows me some possible I'll run with it.

I pounded the chicken flatter but not enough to punch holes in.  Mostly so I could fold in half. Tag with toothpicks and toss in a pan to cook in the over for a hour at 350 (http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/12/08/49ffef3d7608566bf3c75c23cd48223b.jpg)
Add a little seasoning after half hour and check internal temp (http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/12/08/0da14d1e42e1e8f623a0a5e1c6607029.jpg)
Back in the oven again till temp is 160
This is part of what I followed.  Only the sauce portion.  Watch out for the edited milk add (http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/12/08/0903199cd260e894f5edf6eccc8bcca2.jpg)
Plus we made the bread crumb (make topping)
And back in the oven after sauce was added.  This is just of crisp the top and warm everything. (http://images.tapatalk-cdn.com/15/12/08/ba89ceca52aa9c9d53a301ab6b6cf929.jpg)

Time varies per oven and what not.   The son wants mushrooms in his next time
Finished

So this is new to me.  I like grits ( no one else in the house does) where is the how to make grits on the forum?


Raising boys into RealMen!!

I have bought the Quaker instant grits and that is the extent of my knowledge and taste of them. So I too would love to see what you guys do for "real" grits.

Happy to trade my wife's real mac and cheese recipe for anyone who think mac and cheese comes from a box with the letters K R A F T on it.  ;D

Tate's Cheesey bacon Grits:

I use a 4/1 ratio on liquid to grits. cook times vary of course.

2 cups water
2 cups milk(I like whole for more better creamy)
1 cup stone ground grits or coarse cornmeal(it's really the same thing, white is southern, yellow is Italian polenta)
4 tablespoons of butter
1 tsp salt(I use kosher) you may want more, they need a lot of seasoning
1/2 tsp black pepper(I used fresh ground)
1/4 tsp garlic powder
6 oz. of GOOD cheese, grated. Gruyere, fontina, sharp cheddar(doesn't melt as well but tastes good)
1 Tbsp rough chopped flat leaf parsley
6 slices thick cut pepper bacon(have nate ship you some of his)

Fry you up some of that thick delicious bacon. make sure to cook a couple extra pieces for snacking.
Drain, crumble and set aside
bring water, milk, butter and salt to a low boil
slowly add grits/cornmeal to the pot while whisking continuously
reduce heat to low for a bare simmer
add garlic powder and black pepper
continue to whisk for at least 5 min, just slow, tedious whisking
simmer uncovered for 10 more min while whisking every couple minutes. it's work, it's hot, it's worth it.

by this time the grits will be much thicker, but still loose and creamy.
add cheese in 1/4's, folding in with a spatula until it's completely melted before adding the next handful, and keep the last 1/4 aside for topping.
fold in bacon and parsley, pull pot off the heat and allow it to cool for a few minutes. (this stuff is molten lava so be careful)
if it's the main event, just use a shallow bowl, dollop it on there and top with a little extra cheese. I try to keep a little extra bacon to top and some parsley but the bacon usually gets eaten. Serve it up hot on it's own or with a good pan fried bone in pork chop, mmm or some poached eggs for breakfast and of course extra bacon.

P.S., leftovers get spread out in a shallow 9x9 baking pan and cooled in the fridge. This will set up very dense and if you cut it up into squares like brownies and pan fry them in some of the leftover bacon fat and serve a couple squares over some hot marinara or spaghetti sauce with some parmesan you will love yourself for doing so.

I had them in florida at Disneyworld back in '07 for the first time and fell in love. I've got several cool variations including my version of shrimp & grits, but they all usually start with the base recipe, either with or without bacon. (always with bacon). I'll post up my prosciutto wrapped tiger prawns with red wine, balsamic butter sauce over grits in a bit here if I can find a pic.

Post by: Wilbur on December 10, 2015, 05:13:08 PM
Tate that sounds delicious! And it IS very similar to polenta! My wife makes that too and tops it with beef ribs cooked in sauce for hours. Yummm!!

I will get her Mac & Cheese recipe post haste!

Last night I made pasta ___iole which is just a basic pasta and beans soup made with whatever is readily at hand.

Start with a quick sauce (and at my house due to my wife's Italian background "sauce" is always tomato sauce)

I start with minced garlic (we like garlic so I usually do about 5 or 6 cloves)
Some Extra Virgin Olive oil
When the garlic is translucent add one large can of crushed tomatoes
I add all sorts of spices- Italian seasoning, basil, a little rosemary, crushed red pepper, salt, pepper and a touch of sugar

I will usually add some red wine as well (my wife has a jar in the fridge that all unfinished bottles go into for cooking)

I let that bubble away in a slow simmer for some amount of time depending on whatever else I am doing (last night was a half hour or so).

We had about a quarter of a leftover pork roast which I cubed and added to the mix.

Next I boiled some Orecchiette which is the little "hat" pasta. It was just something we had in the cupboard but you can use any smaller type of pasta....small shells, farfalle whatever you have. The pasta will keep cooking in the soup so I only cook it to a pretty firm al dente. Too much and it will be mush after it continues to cook in the soup.

While the pasta was cooking I added a can of (rinsed) black beans.

Then chicken broth....I added about a box and a half of the 32 oz. broth (just a new box and whatever was in the one that was already in the fridge). You can see I don't use precise measurements here! ha! 

I let it cook another 15 minutes or so to meld the flavors. Then at the end I add the pasta. I let it cook another 5 or so minutes and its ready. If you want to make this ahead of time you can just leave the pasta until the last minute so it doesn't get killed.

Ladle and serve. Really great on a cold day! I am fighting a cold so added some siracha to my bowls to give it more kick and clear out my sinuses. You can really make this with whatever you have. We have added chopped onions, chopped green beans, zucchini (add that near the end so they don't fall completely apart), etc etc.

So as promised here's the wife's mac and cheese recipe....

And I just realized the spell check here must have not liked the word "f a g i o l e" cause of the 1st 3 letters.  ::)

Anywho....

Make a roux with 1/2 to 1 stick of butter aND flour....

Add 4 cups whole milk....

Season with onion powder, mustard powder, salt and pepper....1/2 tsp for onion and mustard....more or less as desired for salt and pepper....

Bring to soft boil and start adding cheese while whisking.....4 cups shredded sharp cheddar (but different cheeses are great for different flavors). Keep stirring to melt.

Boil 1 lb elbows or shells or small ziti...drain and wait....

When cheese is all melted put pasta in a bowl and pour cheese sauce all over it....spoon to spread it completely....put in cookware pan. Add panko bread crumbs all over the top with butter also (again as much or as ltitle as you want)....cook for 40 minutes at 350.

You can always go more on the cheese...she added a full cup of parmesan tonight to the 4 cups of cheddar. It was good! ;)

I would have thought that idea is crazy...mail order brides that is

But this friend of mine, a captain at Comair back when they were all the rage. Well, he tries this "Meet your wife" thing with "Russian Girls"

He meets one who he really likes, and using the fly-free pilot thing goes over and meets her. And they really fall in love! Turns out she is a Neurosurgeon and could be a cover girl model if the brain surgery thing didn't work out!

After some slight of the hands and testing and certification, she is plugged in slicing and dicing on American gray matter in the Cincy making hundreds of thousands a year and of course they marry, start having kids, and it is well like winning the voice for him.

Russian women are much different in mindset than American women are. They are not so demanding and cover down hard on their families. I'm sure some are wackos, but this lady was the catch of the century!

I knew a bunch of Russian women in Kandahar, Kabul, and some other spots over there. They were all smart, articulate, pretty, and I never saw them dating anyone. THey stayed in their compound or worked at the barber shop or wherever they worked at.

BlackWater hired a bunch of them in Jordan. Part of the briefing you'd get when arriving there would be something like "Hands off the girls, they all have boyfriends downrange, our guys...

Now in the Fox News balance spirit, my wife and I suspect a lot of the ladies on here are also the catch's of a lifetime for us. Mine is so darned pretty, I still have to slap myself every once in awhile to make sure it isn't a dream...

Only thing I changed was I added MAYBE 1/2 cup extra milk and 2 cups (?) extra of shredded cheese, and I used Rotini noodles, cause their obviously more festive than regular noodles, or maybe that's the first box I saw in my cupboard?? Dad and I topped ours with Sriracha, it was quite tasty.

Online dating doesn't have the stigma it used to. I know tons of people who have found their spouse on some sort of online dating service. Especially professionals and others who really aren't into the bar scene.

Had a hankerin' for some spaghetti. Did a batch of my scratch made family recipe last night.

1 lb italian sausage (spicy if you like), browned and drained. or hamburger, or shredded pork roast, or or or... doesn't matter
1 stick carrot diced
1 stick celery diced
1 sweet onion diced
1 large can tomato sauce
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 small can tomato paste
about a cup of red table wine
2 bay leaves
about 3 tablespoons italian seasoning
about 2 tablespoons salt and pepper each
2 heaping tablesspoons of minced garlic, or about 7-8 cloves if you use fresh

start by browning off the meat, once about half done, drain off the grease, and add in the holy trinity (carrot, celery, onion), finish saute. Once soft, add wine. Saute a few more mins, then add all of the cans and spices. saute for as long as you have! minimum 1 hr. 6 would be fine too :D

all of the seasonings are approximate, and to taste. i just sample with a spoon as it simmers and add as necessary

do you add the tomato paste during your saut? process or no?  I have found that if you add tomato paste during the saut? process and then deglaze, you will get a deeper richer tomato flavor.

At the tail end of the saute, yes. I add it and get it spread around, then add the tomato sauce and diced tomatoes last

Post by: EL TATE on January 25, 2016, 04:28:46 PM
looks very similar to what I do with mine. I like a Tblsp of balsamic vinegar with the wine and add after the tomato paste to deglaze. if the sausage doesn't already have fennel, i'll toast some fennel seeds before starting everything else then add them back in during the stewing process. Now that I've officially hijacked your post, I'm seriously jealous right now. the wife and I are back on our diets to loose the holiday flab and I'm hangry.

Area of a circle = PI*r^2
14 inch pie 7*7*3.14159=153.94 Sq Inches of pizza

1. Normally that would be a valid point, however in dire situations such as that, you have to step it up, it's the unspoken rule of the table.

2. If everyone was properly attired for a battle that you faced, be it; sweatpants, tshirts, jeans or hoodies and not what appeared to be  post-business meeting or official office clothes, the outcome could have been different.

3. That's a valid challenge and I applaud the gallant 5 who attempted to best such a worthy foe.

Hmm, seems that I have some venison steaks chilling (get it??) in my freezer. So now I'm thinking with this blizzard that's supposed to hit, venison chili is in the cards for Tuesday afternoon...

I think i had like 2 pounds when all said and done; 1lb of cubed and 1lb of ground.

That venison version sounds mouthwatering bobby.

I got the idea for this chili from this recipe.  I did not use the peppers because i didnt feel like going to the store,  so i used some of the home canned tomato sauce, paste and stewed.  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy-fieri/texas-chili.html

The other night my wife made the most amazing shrimp. I should have taken a picture but I was too busy stuffing my face.

http://damndelicious.net/2014/04/11/garlic-butter-shrimp/

This recipe is real close to what she did. Only change was she put it in the oven on a cookie sheet with a whole sliced lemon.

I guess I should say it's not going to be so much of a chili as a chili/stew/madness combo. I have some sliced italian sausage,possibly some shrimp and rice towards the of the cooking time frame. Just kinda of had an idea combining a bunch of my favorite things. I'm still torn between the rice or potatoes. Regardless it will all be done in the crock pot while I'm at work, so I don't have to do anything more than put it in a bowl.

Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Nate on February 01, 2016, 01:20:58 PM
make sure you get a good acidic marinade on that venison about 24 hours before you put in in the crock pot.  that way you can ensure that it will be nice and tender and not chewy.

Don't really have an acidic marinade or any marinade to be honest, I haven't gone grocery shopping yet. I'm just going to cube it up tomorrow morning, brown it up and season it along with the ground beef and let the slow cooker do, what it's going to do. It hasn't let me down before, but we'll see how it goes.

All else fails, you can say "I told you so"

I did have some canned pineapple. But I drunk the juice after I eat the pineapple.  No lemon juice.

Well it matters not anymore, I didn't end up using the venison. It's going to be pork and burger chili. It's all seasoned up and sitting in the crockpot on low, mixed with some beans, sriracha, chili powder, tomato sauce and water. So I should have chili around 1300ish when I get home from work. Right on time for the blizzard..

Well as the saying goes " no plan survives first contact with the enemy.."

The "chili" came out decent. I probably should've added the noodles to the slow cooker and cooked them that way, but I didn't think there was enough liquid in there, so I cooked them when I got home. Hindsight, it probably would've helped tie it all together, but in the end it's still good and that's all that I was going for.

Maybe to keep all the chicken fat from causing flare ups?  I know when I grill chicken there is generally a near steady blaze going on under them.

I took all of those thing into consideration with the cast iron on top of my grill.   It has two sides one flat and on with the texture, so I can cook smaller things with loosing them, also so I can pick up the griddle when cooking is done and take it into my table and keep things piping hot
 The clean up is fast also, cuts down on flare ups for sure

Is that that oily imitation "cheese"?

Do I have to send some real cheese to you?

no oily imitation cheese there.  those are the tried and true government cheese slices that I get in the big brick from Costco.

I made chili yesterday for my lunch/dinner in the crockpot. The plan started to fall about soon afterwards. The noodles were inserted too early and as a result, started to get mushy, I applied liberal amounts of cheese to counter this affront to my meal. The addition of mozzarella garlic bread sealed the deal.

Still kinda irritated about it, but guess what, I'll still eat it.

Well, I put a 3 1/2 inch deck screw through their head in to the tree and make a cut at the base of the head and along the back. Then use the pliers to pull the skin off.

Gotcha! That makes sense to me! I was sort of joking but I get it! ;)

so I was given an idea early this morning on what I was going to have for dinner. 

and that idea was a wet burrito.  well I didn't do a true "wet burrito", but I did something pretty darned close.

there is a layer of short grain brown rice, then a layer of some beef roast that I made the other day with some of the beef gravy mixed in with it, a little sour cream, wrapped in a flour tortilla, topped with a 1/4 avocado and some homemade salsa.

Sammich sounds good, minus the kraut. Never got into that. But this reminds me that I do have to run to the bread store after work and get more rye.

Used to heat. Someone recently asked me why I put Sriracha or hot sauce on basically everything before I even start eating it. My response " I've eaten enough bland food, and it's a habit at this point."

Oh 1.5 inch thick will work, how many? 4!  Coming up!! (http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160423/e634b98d18fbd1bf7bf06287bf0f4a17.jpg)

so Friday I made a couple bacon wrapped fatties, 1 was for yesterday at the wife's families place.  they were served with some cheese and crackers, and the plate was literally cleaned out/off in a matter of 10 minutes.  guess they all liked the bacon fatty!

the other one if for today, and well see if it gets the same results.

(http://i.imgur.com/t6wxzEYh.jpg)

then last night I was asked to do up some of the ribs for this afternoon as well, and I figured why not make some beans and a fatty to slice up and put in the freezer for sammichs.  the other 2 fatties will be crumbled up and added to the beans.

posted this earlier in the WDYDT but thought it should be here too. The pork fried rice never made it past the counter before the siblings, teenagers, nieces and children destroyed it, making it "un-photographable". but it was tasty. BBQ pork and egg rolls are all store bought, but vegetable chow mein, orange chicken, hot & sour soup, and the fried rice were all scratch made including the sauces. Even made some dark soy sauce for the occasion.

I made my first tri tip this morning. 

woke up and truly had a hankerin for some tri tip. 

went to Costco, picked up 2 for $28, gave 1 a rub with EVOO and some spices and put it on the pellet pooper at 225 for 2 hrs (took it off when it hit 145 internal temp), let it rest for like 20 minutes while I applied for a job and sliced it up.

I'd recommend you continue cookin, to maintain your proficiency and all that, but if you packed that up and shipped it around to folks you know (Me) it could help with your overall caloric intake...

Topped them 2 with fresh cheddar and 2 with some sandia chile pepper jack cheese, with some Bush's Homestyle baked beans as a side.

Had 1 ea of the cheese topped burgers and some beans. Unfortunately only had 1 wheat tortilla wrap, so one burgers was just thrown down onto the beans.... I never claimed to be sophisticated.  :D

1. Makes my mouth water EVERY TIME!

2. Makes me think about my cookin'

3. Thinking more about #2 makes me sad...

4. Makes me realize I am pretty good at fabbing things...

(But not cookin')

I am, however, pretty good at eatin'...Does that count for anything?

I'll be swinging down to pickup my bacon order, thank you Nate!

Made these with the leftovers from our 4th of July dinner.
Watermelon mojitos:
careful, this makes a lot...

1/4 large seedless watermelon about 8 cups worth, or in my case about 5lbs. 
1 large handful fresh mint leaves, I use the lemon mint for more citrus taste
1 large lime
1/3 cup sugar
1tsp vanilla
1cup of light rum

Cut off rind and cut watermelon into manageable chunks
Using large food processor or working in batches with smaller one, process in pulses until pureed.
finely chop mint leaves and add to puree, pulse to combine
add lime zest, and juice, sugar and vanilla to puree, pulse to combine
(you can stop here and give some to the kiddos)
add rum and enjoy.

My take was it needed an extra shot to be a proper cocktail, but was a great sipper without it. you can church it up a bit and add fresh mint leaves on top and serve over ice in a highball, or even add a bit of fresh cracked pepper which for some reason totally works.

some smoked cabbage turned into slaw with a little grilled chicken on the side.

here is the recipe for the sauce:
One head chopped cabbage - no other vegies!
1/2 cup vinegar
6 tbs sugar
6 tbs EVOO
2 1/2 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp dried celery
1 tbs hot sauce to taste

Combine vinegar, oil and other ingredients in a sealed jar and give it a vigorous shake. Pour over chopped cabbage and toss. Let sit in fridge for two hours or longer (Overnight if you can resist). Toss again before serving.

This will juice up quite a bit so you can use a slotted spoon to serve if you wish.

For some big, bad butt, Airborne NCO to be going hippie all of a sudden, signals all sorts of red flags with me. These guys don't diet, they eat everything. They are all skinny because we keep em' in the field, and we don't feed them while they're out there!

Funny story. I'm at a joint called Rudy's in Amarillo (a texas fuel stop BBQ joint breakfast taco chain) picking up breakfast tacos and filling the dually with fuel last week about 7:30 am. In drives two Chevy 15 passenger vans and a few dudes get out. I start to size them up (I know you all do this too for security reasons )

Begin to notice Solomon shoes and tac pants and bulky Hawaiian shirts. Tight, but not too tight hair and beards. Ball caps and Wiley X and Oakley glasses on top. Scanning and looking. Not bunched together and all positioned for different vantage points. Checking me at at the same time.

Those guys were screaming "contractor" and probably thought they were blending in too Bobby.

Then back outside I notice they arrived in unmarked vans with g plates.

I just had to smile.

Probably enough firepower and talent to overthrow a small country in those two vans.

I had some smoked turkey in the freezer leftover from Easter. I was getting a ton of carrots and onions out of the garden so I made soup. Canned 6 quarts. The smoky small filled the whole house. I had my doubts but it turned out great. It will be even better this winter when we are snowed in and its 30 below. It looks more appetizing in person.(http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160808/41d83355bdc4ee78a3f12eaaa2cd631f.jpg)

This little piggy went to market. This little piggy stayed home. This little piggy made the mistake of eating corn under the feeder and now shes on my smoker.  Tenderloins and a leg quarter from the pig I shot. Tiny little tender thing.  Little Memphis dust on it and on to smoke over pecan. (http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20161221/b444217731de26427aaaf8036e440823.jpg)

That's worthy!

Here's something to consider: If you drink coke, go to Sams and buy the imported Mexican coke. Compare the taste and ingredients to the American poison.
^^^The Tex/Mex dish made me think of it

No corn syrup in the mex stuff, just sugar. No preservatives either

My wife is a fish kind of person....she would eat it every meal if she could. But the holidays are good times for me...she cooks fish and I cook what I want. So prime rib for Christmas, Brisket two days later, Sunday for the Patriots game I had ribs (I prefer dry rub style), doing another brisket Saturday for a party. Mmmmmmmm.....

Why do I get the impression there will be an over abundance of meat and bread and very little vegetables in this RM cookbook?

This is the only time I will quote that POS Dan Rather but he had a great story on the Tonight Show once a long time ago. He married a woman from Texas who's Dad was a cattle rancher. Every year they took Dad out to dinner on his birthday to a big steakhouse. Now this guy ate beef....period....that's it, just beef. And he was in his mid 90's so he was doing something right. So the waitress comes and takes his order, he orders the biggest Porterhouse on the menu, rare. She asks him what vegetables would he like with his steak and he says in his serious Texas twang "Li'l lady, vegetables are what FOOD eats." Always loved that line, even if the story was told by a liberal nitwit.

Dave. Thanks for making me pull that cookbook off the shelf. I watched this guy cook on public television back in the 80s. He was a forerunner to all the new cooking shows like Emeril Lagasse.

He's (was-he's dead now) the real deal coonass. Here are his recipes for jambalaya.

So he now golfs a lot and farms trout in a few dugouts.

Okay....you give me all your onions you can have all my peppers. Ha! (Except the hot ones....I keep those  :wink:). I like raw green and red peppers but don't really care for them cooked. Onions I'll eat raw or cooked. Love them.

If they all cooked even then you know you don't have any hot spots. I'm going to try that on my gas grill. I know there are hot spots on that.

take a couple cans of those instant biscuits and place them throughout the pellet cooker to see where your hotter spots are.

your hot spots on that are most likely gonna be around the edges where the drip try ends on each side and whatever end your stack is on.....

Me and my blanket cover smoked some chicken last night,

Come cheapo drumsticks and a bottle of ranch salad dressing.  I poured both into a bowl and than added some chalula and franks hot sauce
Mixed and placed on the smoker.  Two hours or so than I got hungry and turned up the heat till inside temp was 165

Results were tasty and I would add more hot sauce next time

I salt a few hours before rub and no salt in rub. Salt is the only seasoning that penetrates so i put it on early and let the meat come to room temp.

I've read that smoke only penetrates for about 2 hours. For my pulled pork I smoke 2 hours then put it in a tinfoil pan covered tightly and cook until its 203 degrees with a remote thermometer in the center (I know sounds crazy hot- but it supposedly renders the last bits of fat and it works for me). I'm a dry rub guy and for babybacks and I cook them in tinfoil from start to finish (I know....a heretic). I go 200 for 4 hours. When they're done I unwrap them and put them on the grille to "dry" them a bit (they are totally wet from the rendered fat when I take them out of the tinfoil). I might put a little sauce on for folks that like sauce but I like 'em dry.

Wilbur, try letting your butts run open until they hit 165 internal, then wrap until 200+.  it will help get a good bark set.

there has been no scientific proof that I have seen that states meat will only take X amount of hours of smoke, the pink ring around beef and pork is actually a chemical reaction within the meat when smoke is applied.

Is it me or did that that come out funny?
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Wilbur on April 03, 2017, 07:17:50 PM
Haha! I totally missed that!

But I  think you're right on the smoke.....I started wrapping when I did 100 lbs of pulled pork for my sons grad party. I did it to avoid what this site calls "the stall"...

http://amazingribs.com/tips_and_technique/the_stall.html

It usually takes me a couple of hours to get to about 150 but maybe if I tried to go longer it might be even better. I was more concerned about getting it all done when I started wrapping. I will try one longer.

For pulled pork I like NC vinegar sauce and usually add a small amt of regular BBQ sauce. I put both out for people so they can pick their own.

I don't broadcast it due to possible conflicts of interest but let's just say my part time "hobby" at the local pub has paid off substantial debt, allowed my creative outlet and caused me to gain a little weight. This is what I was making last night. stout braised corned beef brisket with house made thousand, marbled rye and swiss w/ really good kraut and fries. deli sliced the corned beef, then flat topped it for heat and color, layered the kraut and melted the swiss into it before throwing in the press. It did not suck.

Tell me more about the cornbread... for you know.. science and stuff.

2 box's of jiffy cornbread mix (with 1 egg and 1/3c milk), 1 can cream corn, 1 pkg of shredded cheddar, and 2 jalapenos fineliy sliced.

Mix all ingredients, liberally coat cast iron pan and into 400 deg oven for 20-30 min.

How big of a cast iron skillet? I have a 10 or 12"  cast iron skillet at my apartment, that needs more use.

I use my 12 for just about everything

I used one of those 2 cup packages.

keep in mind that this is a dense cornbread recipe.  if you want it a little lighter, don't use as much cream corn.  just stick a toothpick in the center in a couple places to check the doneness (the toothpick should pullout clean)

Yep, first brats of my grill.  Have consumed a few elsewhere but have not grilled them myself.  It was a slow start to the grilling season for me.  I forget what flavor these were.  The local butcher has a case with about 30 options I think.  If you ever come down to do some shooting I will pull the habanero out of the freezer.  My wife can't handle them and nobody else in the family can either.

I highly recommend Ulis Famous Sausage, Men's Room Original. A talk and music show on a local rock station here in Seattle, they have paired up with Elysian brewing co. to create a really good Red Ale beer that a large portion of the proceeds support the local VA Fisher houses here in WA. They have paired up with Ulis Famous Sausage in Pike Place and the WA state ferry system has brought them on board as well. Delicious beer brats with a great purpose. You can order them online and have them shipped. https://ulisfamoussausage.com/mros/

We used to vacation in Maine on a beach that had TONS of clams. It had been posted for red tide so no shellfishing. At low tide there was a huge sandbar that connected two islands. We were walking out there and a guy was clamming. He had a ton. I mentioned the red tide to him. He just laughed, said he lives there all summer and gets as much as he wants and never gets sick. I dunno if he had built up an immunity to it, or if the signs were old or what. But he was loving the clams he found. I was tempted to dig some myself but just didn't want to take the risk.

Always wanted to try it at home. key to the egg was cold start, 3 min after rolling boil and cool it down right away. everything else was just chopping veggies. the shrimp were thawed pre-cooked Costco, but a little ginger and soy marinade while the rest was cooking. it was pretty good for a non Japanese fella.

Not as good as your walleye or Nate's razors looked though. I'm still jealous.

So these are two versions of Smoked salmon sacchetti pasta that we came up with at the pub; one with alfredo and the other with pesto and heavy cream for the sauce. both have smoked salmon, sundried tomatoes, kalamata olives, red onions and mushrooms and a little parm. saut? onions mushrooms and tomatoes in butter add heavy cream and reduce to thicken, couple tablespoons of pesto and fold in salmon toss w/ the chopped up kalamatas and sprinkle a little parm. I put a dollop of the smoked salmon and chive cream cheese in the center like a pad of butter and it blended in pretty good. I like the alfredo just as much, and way easier to make with already prepped sauce.

In our house, we call this poor mans tonkatsu, because all we do is add some pork to it rather than making 24hr pork bone broth like the restaurants that serve real tonkatsu do. Sure looks good though! We enjoy sure enjoy making this kind of thing.... less the egg because I suck at cooking eggs.

The "salad bar" in the background is the cold line for my burgers and nachos pizza toppings etc. and the "sprinkles" you see all over the plate are not my style, but the owner likes to church things up. I think it just makes him seem pretentious, but the flavor is still very tasty.

OK, tried something new tonight.  I get so busy at work that I walk across to a greek restaurant fairly regularly to eat their greek salad with beef and lamb gyro meat.  That gets to be expensive multiple times a week at $20 a pop.  So I thought I'd try to replicate the salad at home and see if I can save a few bucks.

Leg of lamb:

4.5 lb leg
7 cloves minced fresh garlic
zest of 2 lemons
juice of 1 lemon
1/3 cup EVOO
1/3 cup red wine
2 tbs chopped fresh oregano
1 tbs grey poupon mustard

Salt and pepper the lamb, rub with the marinade and marinate 3-4 hours or overnight.  Place on shallow roasting rack at 375 and roast until well done (the only way the greeks eat their meat) or about 155 internal temp flipping about 3/4 the way through to get browning on both sides.

Salad:

Rough chopped iceberg and romaine lettuce
sliced red and green bellpepper
thin sliced purple onion
thin shredded purple cabbage
thin sliced radish
grated carrot
Chopped fresh oregano
Later when assembling the salad:

Add quartered roma tomatos, pepperoncini, pitted kalmata olives, capers and feta cheese.

Greek dressing:

1.5 cups good olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tbs good balsamic vinegar
1tbs grey poupon mustard
1tbs dried dill
1tbs dried oregano
1tbs black pepper
1tbs sugar
1tbs salt
1tbs garlic powder
Juice of one lemon

place in jar and shake well and refrigerate


To serve.  Place salad in bowl, add tomatos, capers, olives, pepperoncini, and feta cheese.  Drizzle salad dressing and toss.  Slice meat very thinly and place on top.  Serve with fresh lemon wedges.

And this weekend

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170523/c42753658e405d60c2658305594fffc0.jpg)

Went lighter on the rub and added apple cider vinegar to the apple juice for the spray. Also smoked with pecan this time.

Good, but needed more rub and I like hickory better.

So. I'm trying to regain some manliness after the expose on my Greek salad...

Between the ribs and this I hope to regain some cred.

Blistered shishooto peppers. Mix of olive and grape seed oil. Coat the peppers. Liberally salt and pepper. Heat a cast iron skillet to very hot on the stove top while the broiler in the oven is heating up. Toss the peppers in the skillet and then place under the broiler until we'll blistered. Don't mind the smoke. It had to be very high heat to get the blister and not wilt the pepper.

Remove and place in a bowl, add additional salt. Sprinkle with feta or goat cheese.

Make a quick sauce. Sourcreme mayo lime juice and hot sauce. Salt and pepper.

Eat and discover the addiction.

You can hold off on adding the Louisiana hot sauce and Worcestershire until the rest of the ingredients start to simmer and add to taste if you?re not a fan of hot and tangy. Let it cool in the pan and then refrigerate it. It will get hotter as it ages but I think it?s best after it sits for 24 hours. If you need it thicker for certain applications add corn starch as it simmers to thicken.
 
Than I followed the treager 123 method with times and apple juice

My first brisket on the GmG today, so far I started it at 4am, (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170625/76ca90c429dc0b24b7b4437c4f0e3305.jpg)
I didn't follow the salt and black pepper standard, went with my fav Santa Maria seasoning I use on everything, (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170625/0d66ce8e8a34b6cdac99cdce71682821.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170625/9c942459289ef8f8900f9f8993b42409.jpg)
This was all done the night before so the rub could sit for a bunch of hours
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170625/2a5f2a24f499e1d635cc060aa6eab8b5.jpg)
Than on the smoker at 225 till internal temp was 165, about 7 hours. Than pulled and wrapped in paper until the next internal temp is hit of 200.  (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20170625/ba313bcce992def278daad4d685ea412.jpg)I'll post pictures of the cut meat as son as possible

Dave as a brisket nears completion, and the fat starts to render, it becomes tender. When inserting a skewer, you'll notice it slides in like it's going into butter, very little resistance. Another method is how flexible it feels when you pick it up.

Ok. Three racks of ribs today. Three different ways. All used my same rub, but one was not spritzed/mopped, one was spritzed with apple juice and one was mopped in a vinegar sauce that had pepper, brown sugar, salt, white vinegar, crushed red pepper flakes and Texas Petes hot sauce.  I really really liked the vinegar/ pork combo.  Wow.

Ok, so broiled 2 of the smaller trout. Gave the 2 smallest away. These barely fit into the broiler.
 
Used, a stick of butter, teaspoon of minced garlic, salt/pepper with slices and of lemon and some rosemary from the back yard.

Broiled for 25 min, sauteed once.

In my sons words, "this is wonderful!" He ate half the small one

Confession/Announcement:

Menses, after much thought and study, I switched to a plant based diet this past week.

Virtually every malady that afflicts modern Americans comes from our animal meat foods. There is alot to discuss, so maybe I'll set apart a section to talk about that, but I am convinced beyond a doubt that we humans are designed to eat plants, and that our US food culture based on meat, eggs and dairy is killing us.

I thing a big part of readiness is health and I had noticed a loss of performance and a couple more pounds here and there with advancing age.

I run a church security ministry where I train and train with some pretty good folks every week. I had noticed my performance wasn't what it should be when going 100% against a bag or another person over and over for an hour.

Last Saturday was the last time any animal product touched my lips, so its only been a few days. But today when working on the C-Max, installing that rear sway bar, I noticed my knees and back were not hurting! As in not at all!

I am 63, and in reasonably good condition, but my weight has been creeping uphill and touched 260 a time or two! I am 6'3" and of a large frame, so I carry it pretty well, but I can also feel it, especially when fight training with the thirty year olds.

I do things best all at once. Just dive in and get on with it. Got saved that way. One minute a hell raiser, the next, redeemed and actually in love with the Lord! Did special ops that way. Just decided to join and dove in. So I did this the same way. No weening off my beef jerky, nope I just set all that aside and turned into a hippie!

I can say, I feel great, and I am dropping weight.

I'll post up a new thread down in Personal Readiness. Lets see where this takes me...

Shiratake noodle Yakisoba:

1 package of fettuccini style shiratake noodles. Drain, rinse, pan fry dry, no oil, until fluffy and squeaky. (you'll know) set aside.
1 red pepper 
1 white onion
1 small broccoli crown
3-5 large shootake mushrooms
2-3 green onions/scallions
1 clove of garlic, crushed and minced
1 Tblsp fresh cilantro
1/2 tsp toasted sesame seeds
1 Tblsp low sodium soy sauce or Tamari
Siracha to taste
1 Tblsp rice vinegar
vegetable oil
Toasted sesame oil

Add enough vegetable oil to hot saut? pan to cover the bottom and saut? the mushrooms until browned and set aside. Stir fry peppers and onions and broccoli until just starting to soften, then add garlic and as much sesame oil as you like for the flavor. toss in the pan until the garlic is cooked through and add mushrooms back to the pan. add half cilantro and sliced green onions and noodles and toss to evenly distribute. add rice wine vinegar and soy sauce and saut? for a couple minutes, tossing frequently. Put it all in a bowl or large plate and top with the rest of the scallions and cilantro, siracha and toasted sesame seeds. I like a squirt of lime and shrimp, but you could go tofu just as easily.

That does look good Tate....I think what gets a lot of people in trouble is the "all or nothing" mentality. I love beef, its what's for dinner any time I can. I like pork a lot too. Chicken and fish I will eat but don't go out of my way to have it. I will absolutely eat an all veggie meal if I feel like it. I am a big fan of beans and rice with veggies. But part of that is cause I KNOW I will also be having beef or pork or something later in the week. If I felt I had to have only veggies forever it would be much much harder -as in Id probably go full Mongol if that were presented to me (some Mongol nomads eat only meat  :likebutton:).

I don't use a pan nor does he.  The pan traps all of the grease and I don't like swimming meatloaf

He forms it in a loaf and it just flattens out as it cooks

Mine stay firm.   Our mix is similar.

Since Don hasn't started the burger thread I thought I'd post what my daughters call the "best burger yet"

80/20 ground beef
Thin slices onions
Normal fixins


Press patties, place a pile of shredded cheese in the middle. Cover with another thin patty. Seal the edges and form.

Heat the flat top and toss a pile of onions on the flat top and then press the burger into them. Slow cook until onions are carmelized and So is the meat. Flip once and finish.

Butter buns and griddle.

Serve with lettuce tomato pickle mustard and miracle whip.

Cheese oozing

Carmelized onions and meat on the flat top make ALL the difference. Not sure I'll ever grill burgers over charcoal again.

Wilbur I have the 3 burner camp chef stove with the heavy steel flat top.  That way I can pull it and use pots and pans if I need to. If you want a dedicated flat top the blackstone is hard to beat. I have a friend that has one and I've cooked on it. I would say that it heats more evenly because of the 3 U burners instead of the 3 round burners.

I also have the campchief and while I enjoy the flat top I would agree it is really hard to regulate the temps and hot spots.  I have never shopped another brand to compare. But my camp chief works for all of our canning needs also.   

I do use the cast double sided griddle on my Weber and get much of the same affect as a flat top.

Thanks TRN and Dave. I had decided on the Camp Chef but recently saw a Blackstone and it looked nice. But yeah I want the flexibility to use pots or a flat top. Maybe a thicker flat top than Camp Chef's version would smooth out some of the hot spots better.
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Nate on September 11, 2017, 09:11:28 AM
Its more of a design issue than a thickness issue wilbur.  The camp chefs have 2 or 3 (depending on which size) circular burners, where as the blackstones have 4 straight burners.

I have both, and they each get used for different things
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Wilbur on September 11, 2017, 10:44:32 AM
Thanks Nate- yeah I saw that comment. So I think one way "around that" if using a Camp Chef (I too want the flexibility to use pots etc. ) is with a thicker gauge flat top....it would spread the heat better no? I tried to find the gauge of the CampChef one but it doesn't say, but basing on the weight and size it appears the Camp Chef version is around 3 gauge (almost 1/4"- a 16"x24" griddle weighs 28 lbs.). The Blackstone one is lighter (7 gauge) but that lighter metal probably still works due to the difference in the burners?

I'm probably overthinking this anyway (shocker I know!  :rolleyes:  :laugh:) I do want the ability to use pots/pans so the camp chef still seems like the best way to go.

Wil, the camp chef will do you solid.  The thick top distributes heat well but you will notice at the very bottom in particular that there is a heat differential.  You can use that to your benefit.  Overall about 75-80 percent of the surface stays pretty consistent.

I don't purposely choose bone in or bone out. I just grab what ever is in the freezer. I've done both and really couldn't tell a difference. We take live hogs to the local locker. All the meat is wrapped in white paper with a stamp saying what it is. I don't know if it has a bone or not until it thaws some and I unwrap it. We have been using a new guy lately that vaccum packs everything. So I can pick and choose a little better.

Back to the point I prefer bone out just because I dont have a bone to deal with when I cut it up.

here is how I do my chucks on the smoker TRN:

- rub with a little olive oil and coat with what ever flavor seasoning suits your fancy

- place in a smoker around 300deg for 4-6 hours

- if you want some drippings then put some boiling water in the bottom of the pan and wrap maybe about the last 2ish hours (sort of like braising)

- when meat reaches about your desired tenderness level, pull - rest - prepare - serve.

I took mine up to almost a pulled/shredded beef consistence, and served it like I would pulled pork. 

its doing the same thing as a crockpot roast just minus all of the (boiling) juice/water, but that's why you add a little water to the pan about 1/2 - 3/4 way thru so that you can get some good concentrated drippings for a gravey or to add back into the meat once it has been de-fatted.

Also, what's is all yous alls experiences of differences on bone in or boneless pork shoulders?  Couple of coworkers been having a debate about  it.  What say ye?

honestly dave, there really is no real difference between a bone-in and de-boned.

1. when you buy bone-in you are paying for the weight of the bone still left in the meat (con), but on the back side you don't have to tie it back together (pro) (a solid piece of meat cooks more evenly than one that is not solid).

2. when you buy de-boned, you are paying for the meat and not the bone (pro), but then you are going to pay a little more on the price, because a human had to manually cut that bone out of there (con, and you still have to tie it back together as stated above).

(example) the next time you go to the grocery store or where ever you get your meat from, look at the brisket prices.  a full packer is almost $1 - $1.50 less than just the flat (which had to be manually cut from the point and there for is no longer the full packer).

try coating your wings in corn starch before you smoke them, and them after they have had their fill of smoke put a finishing char ion them from direct flame - coat  - and serve

I boil them whole in seawater, 5 min per lb. I start the water when I leave shore, and by the time I'm back it's rocking away. I was using a couple tablespoons of old bay too, but I like plain seawater better. I have one of these bayou classics and that thing will have 8 gallons rolling in 15 min or so. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Bayou-Classic-High-Pressure-Propane-Burner/21709841. I usually like to pick them clean and then serve them in bowls with lemon and butter, but most just eat it straight up. This salad was with apple cider vinegar, lemon juice, stevia and franks hot sauce

it's a plant based sweetener that isn't a preservative like saccharin or splenda. Wife's still on her low carb kick, so I try not to use basic sugars too often and for a dressing with that much intense flavor you never notice a "fake sweet", but you'd notice if I left it out.

Better be some serious pt because so far I've averaged about 110-120 calories burned per mile and that's at about an 8:30 or faster mile during sprint workouts. What these guys cook would easily push 800-1200 calories per plate. Which means we'd be running a half marathon or more to ensure no weight gained! Thankfully much of the calories would be in the form of protein.

Wife and I discuss food intake and energy output during long runs, odd topic but it helps remove the focus from dying towards the end of the runs.

None the less, I'm in for food and PT, always a good time, shoot I'll even provide the meat to be cooked, brisket, some roasts pork chops chicken breasts. Where we meetin up?!!!

Motivation for PT:
1/2lb patty of chuck, short rib, brisket blended with pepper jack cheese and thick cut apple wood bacon. Brioche bun with chipotle mayo, lettuce onion tomato, pepper jack, bacon, friend onion strings and an onion ring on top. one of my favorite creations. I often upgrade it with saut?ed jalapenos and a fried egg.

I'm not a turkey fan, but deep fried one once, it was good.
Wow I just said that.

Injected with onion soup mix, take out the solids, they clog the needle.
Should have gave it a day to soak in better.

May be better options for injection for fryer.

Dave, when we did the Disney thing years ago, smoked turkey legs were a hit.
You may be on to something there.

A buddy of mine did one I tried also, baked etc, but breasts down.
Kept it more juicy, but was still bird to me.

I️ brine my turkey for 24 hours using a WIlliams Sonoma brine ( I?m lazy ) with a good white wine. I️ make a compound butter and carefully open the space between the skin and breast and rub butter and insert thin lemon slices. Brush the skin with olive oil. Then smoke on pellet smoker with cherry pellets.

Lemon sounds good Tex

I was thinking a dry rub under the skin, bacon slipped in while no one was looking and pellet smoke for hours

Soften butter and add fresh chopped herbs. What ever sounds good. Sage, chives, parsley etc. once processed, roll up in a piece of parchment and re-chill. Then slice into pats and use.

Well since we are eating thanksgiving dinner tomorrow with the family here?s the plan.

All natural fresh turkey. Brine from Williams Sonoma that had apple juniper berries, herbs, salt etc.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171124/7b486aea3cabef51c6ddc7841ed138b0.jpg)

Boil on the stove in a gallon of water. Let cool. Add another gallon and a bit of water and 1.5 liters of white wine.

Place I?m brining container and put in fridge for 8-10 hours.

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20171124/815b4759b2a6c51a96d24671f4dcf206.jpg)

Meanwhile I?m making herb compound butter. Sage rosemary thyme orange zest.

Have separated the skin from the breast so I can get herb butter under it along with lemon slices.

Then will brush outside with butter and smoke over cherry pellets.

Now the real trick this year will be getting the breast and thigh to come to temp at the same time since you want 180 in the thigh and 170 In the breast. I will try icing the breast with a bag of ice and then cover with foil once it gets to about 145

Thanks Dave. I have to say I hit it out of the park with this  one. The problem with turkey is by the time the thigh gets to 180 the breast is over cooked

This year I came up with a plan. When the breast got to 140 and the thigh was at 130 I covered the breast in foil and then wet a washcloth and placed it in the freezer.  When it was frozen I placed it over the foil to cool the breast. I rotated two washcloths in this fashion until I had the breast 10 degrees cooler than the thigh. Then I bring them to the right temp.

That way the breast is juicy and not dry and the thighs are done and not bloody.

No pictures but seeking advise on my first prime rib

My recipe said....  sear meat on smoker at 500 degrees 15 min on fat cap and than turn for another 15min.  Turn temp down to 190 until internal temp if desired 🥩.    I choose medium at 140 degrees. 

I am unsure how to count the size of my roast.
Only removed one bone when finished cooking.   My recipe said it would take 5 plus hours and mine was done in two hours or so.   

It tasted good for a simple rub of oil, salt, pepper, fresh garlic. 

Suggestions as I have four more in my freezer to try to get right before I cook a really large prime rib for Christmas Eve

Its actually some of this: (six pepper blend)

With some real hungarian sweet paprika for color:

https://www.amazon.com/Kalocsa-Sweet-Hungarian-Paprika-5-Ounce/dp/B000FDB3S0


Nate is "rubbing it in" because our smoker isn't here yet. It's in Texas in the loving care of FedEX and their slow trucks.



I would never do such a thing, i am just providing an option for you or kay to use as a test for/of your new smoker thats supposed to be delivered today.  By the way, do you have a big can of non stick spray and a fatty for the inagural /initial burn in?

Ya Know Nate not sure on  her plans to "spray"  My guess she will "season" it like she does her cast iron or something.

No fatty as of yet...but I see she has a Turkey thawing in the fridge so that may play a role. I shall ask her next time I see her.
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Nate on December 21, 2017, 08:17:10 AM
yeah, all the spray does it act like a seasoning for cast iron and it also helps coat and protect the inside.

Sorry for the brief ignorant question but what is a "FATTY"???  :facepalm:  It isn't found at Walmart correct?
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: Nate on December 21, 2017, 11:00:43 AM
mike, a fatty as known in the BBQ world is basically a smoked sausage roll......think a roll of jimmy dean sausage that was smoked to 165deg internal temp, cooled a little and served like summer sausage. 

heres a few links for you.

Barrel arrived at 2:30pm. Lit it at 3:38pm with 5lbs of Kingsford Blue and a few chunks of Mulberry.

At 4pm when I had time I hung a 12lb Turkey in it.  It was just above freezing with a 11mph wind.

It's 5:30 pm and the bird is at 127 degrees.  Outside temp is 26 degrees, still breezy.

Barrel is running at 280 degrees. Which is impressive ...it just sits at that temp now since lit. Barely wiggles a degree or two either way. I can cool it, or warm it up with a slight air intake adjustment. But it's set it and forget it... so far other than experimenting, no real need for the Temp probes.

basically it just seems to work.

I will let you know how it turns out.
Title: Re: whats for dinner tonight
Post by: OldKooT on December 23, 2017, 12:28:45 PM
Turkey turned out excellent. With almost no "prep" except some pit rub and the Mulberry smoke, it tasted amazing.

Nate is flippin amazing

But what I find just as amazing

Is that there are a bunch of you's (HS) (Hill Billie Speak) on here who can also cook!

I'm really impressed

So I made up a chicken and spinach lasagna.

Should have cooked it at 325 for about an hour +15

I set the oven at 400 to preheat

Put in the lasagna

Forgot to reset the temp.

So, the bottom and top was not lookin' all that edible, but we made a meal out of the middle! ;-)

No worries man.

- pre heat oven to 350
- cube up 4-5 strips of bacon and fry them
- cut the little ends off the brussel sprouts, halve them and get rid of the loose leaves.
- come up with a good spice blend for the brussel sprouts
- mix spice blend, bacon grease and 1-2 tbls melted butter and coat the brussel sprouts
- put coated brussel sprouts on a sheet pan and bake for 30ish minutes
- when just about to your tenderness, turn oven to broil and get a little brown on them
- serve with a sprinkle of bacon bits and some finely grated Parmesan cheese

Putting in the oven here in a few hours
And finished product is a massive cheesy mess! (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180204/54060860fa8e9225ca05b5ef1ad34536.jpg)
I would maybe mix some sriracha to make it a little more heat

Our new neighbors have become very good friends to us, and to make a long story short he's been battling parkinsons disease for about 10 years. They are snow birds and spend this time of year in Marathon, AZ and we were surprised to see them home this weekend so we popped over to say hello and found out he'd undergone a surgical procedure to implant electrodes and a pace maker of sorts and it has been a complete success! No more daily tremors or hour long periods where his muscles would simply lock up. In celebration we decided that if she bought the groceries I would do the cooking and this is what we came up with:

Cr?me Brule with a port that they brought back from their trip to Europe, (pretty tasty stuff)
Seared scallops in brown butter lemon sauce
Potato gratin with sage, thyme, heavy cream, butter and comte cheese
Medium rare flat iron steak
Poached spiny lobster tail (they are in fact spiny, and my hands are trashed from shelling them)

Making a Scotty?s ranch chicken

A bottle of ranch, enough hot sauce to make it even better and chicken of any type.   Coat the chicken.  I use good ol gloves and get my hands into it and place on grill or smoker.   I prefer smoker at 175 for a few hours than turn up the temp until cooked through

So I purchased a brisket at Costco last week.  Cut it in half and smoked it Saturday. Well the wife and grandma did, I went to work and left them with simple instructions with spray meat every 45 min with 225 degrees on the GMG. 
(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180610/b9ee526c9fb2c363b5785e3b9f114e14.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180610/fdc754048f749c7d15ff5f6ccdb1bda7.jpg)
Used this stuff at 50/50, smoker since 10:00 am till 12:45 am.    Waiting till the meat hit 165 wrapped and back on smoker till it hit 205.  The point cooked at a much faster rate for sure.

When the meat was done I wrapped in a big towel and placed in a cooler and sliced this morning when I was awake enough to not cut my hand off

so last weekend while up at Wendy's parents, I was informed of a shrimp farm just south of me by like an hour.  Well yesterday I researched them and placed an order for 2lbs with a pick up of this afternoon.  let me just say, this place is "IN THE COUNTRY".....probably like 5 miles from a paved road!

The name of this company is Rock Creek Aquaculture:  https://rockcreekshrimp.com/

and here is a video from the local news about the place:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GfJ8vaCliPM

So the 2 lbs of shrimp that I got from him were deheaded and saut?ed in some garlic butter and were served with some fried cabbage with bacon.  the cost of the shrimp was $18 per lb and they are 20-24 shrimp.  I normally pay $10 per lb and get a 4lb bag of 13-15 shrimp from Costco.  Truth be told, I am all for supporting local business, but not sure if I can do it at double the cost for a smaller take home?  I will give them another try and make a determination from there?

heres the recipe that I used as a base line for the cabbage: http://www.thewednesdaychef.com/the_wednesday_chef/2013/05/spicy-cabbage-with-bacon-shrimp-and-tomatoes.html

oh yeah I did finish my second bacon this evening which is chilling down in the fridge, to get sliced up tomorrow.

Smoked brisket at the cabin today. About 10 hours in not quite done but ran out of sunshine. It was at 183 so it was cooked and tender and deliciously juicy and all but not quite as much as it could have been. It looked a lot like the one up a few posts and was devoured quickly.

Rained off and on this afternoon and other than a couple hours before the sun hit the panels the solar ran the smoker without a hitch.

Nate, I wrapped them once I pulled them at around 160 and stuck in oven at 225 overnight. Turned out nice and moist, just finished pulling them an hour or so ago.

So there?s a restaurant that?s only serves chicken strips called Rasin? Cane?s

My daughter raves about it so I decided to try to duplicate it as a reward for helping me out around the hide

It?s a buttermilk and egg mixture and flour and breadcrumb batter. Double dipped

Then a sauce with mayo ketchup worchestchire garlic salt and lemon, and black pepper

2. Was the bird dry?

The bird was a Perdue brand young roasting bird right out of the package. Not brined by me  - just washed, trimmed & dried. Sprinkle spices and put on grill with natural lump charcoal in indirect side baskets. Smoke box filled with Jack Daniels chips and the tail end of my mellowing charcoal pellets I picked up at the distillery. Added three hickory bricquetts as well. I?m able to vent my kettle to hold temperature so it was really moist to the point of filling the plate with juice while eating it.

Just wish the quality of bird was higher - if these chickens were people, they?d be the ones riding electric scooters and eating pork rinds!

kettles work great for doing a little smoking like you did. 

I asked about the brine, because when I do my birds on the smoker, I always put them in a brine over night to make sure they stay moist thru the process.
