Based upon the size of that Corning Ware dish, I'm hoping you nixed the "individual" aspect of tonight's dinner Nate!  Mmmm!

Thank you very much. She's always the party planner for everyone else and my wife really wanted to do something special for her for once, so it's a good thing I didn't screw it up!

Tate & Nate,

I think I hear a cook off in the making......... :popcorn:

Ken, you can be a judge and cover poor taste since you have an affinity for H & 1911?s! I?ll cover good taste since I like Jeeps and Glocks. Together we got this, how?s that for teamwork Don? :facepalm:

Steak, Calamari, pineapple, shrimp, chicken breast. BBQ'd then added some teriyaki at the end. I wanted butter garlic but the butter was gone  :facepalm:

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

I use a basic dry rub or get the pre season packages of chicken from the store. Easy enough but super juicy when finished.

Two 9.5# butts went on tonight around 6pm, kids with some friends are going to water park tomorrow. Figure by the time they get home they will be hungry so this should feed them well. In case you're wondering, yes I'm old and I now go to bed late and still wake up really early...........

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. 

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.
