Chicken, potatoes and carrots.  Not pictured: corn on the cob.

Nothing grilled. Ran chicken in the Sous Vide and made a Chicken Poke Bowl with Sriracha Mayo. Started on a bed of Mixed Lettuces, Quinoa, Edamame, Avocado, Bell Pepper, Grape Tomatoes, Spring Onion, Nori Furikake sprinkles and Chicken, and a Kiwi for garnish.

You cannot grill during a fire ban? I've never seen even a spark leave my grill.

Probably should have specified charcoal. I don't think I've seen even a spark leave my charcoal grill either, but I'm no fan of fires so I've been playing by the rules.

Man I live a good plate of wings. How did you cook em? Sauce type?

Super easy: I prepped the wings the day before, and let them dry out ovenight in the fridge, on a stainless cooling rack set into a rimmed baking sheet.  Wings also got a light dusting of salt and pepper before going into the fridge, to dry-brine overnight.

Preheated the oven to 400°F, and the wings got a light hit of cooking spray followed by a dusting of Penzey's adobo spice rub (both sides).

Then into the oven for 1 hour, flipped halfway through.

Once cooked, they got a brushing of Rojo pepper sauce (both sides), courtesy of Atomic City Foods, then back into the oven for 10 minutes (heat off), to let the sauce set up.

Plate and devour.  And they were quite tasty.

I plan to smoke two chickens tonight.  Brined them last night and will dry rub them this afternoon.

We are making chicken salad for a dinner party tomorrow evening.  Smoked chicken really makes the chicken salad recipe pop!

 A couple of days late, but over the weekend smoked/grilled another Tomahawk. Took it to 120F over charcoal with Hickory and then grilled over Mequite Charcoal.

Moussaka is delicious! If you have a lot of eggplant, and aren't familiar with it, stay in the Eastern Mediterranean and learn to make Baba Gannouj; one of the highest callings of the humble eggplant.  A roasted eggplant spread/dip.

Robert, I've been growing eggplant for many years. It's not a finicky plant to grow at all. Given plenty of water and lots of sun it produces greatly. I have had/made Baba Gannouj on occasion. I like it! The great thing about eggplant is the range of dishes made and the techniques employed to that end. Here are a few dishes I like to cook with the lowly eggplant. A simple eggplant parmesan. An Indian dish called Bainghan Bharta, you blacken the eggplant whole over a charcoal fire for authenticity and then you rinse the charred skin off (I don't) then mash with spices and herbs amongst other ingredients. Look that one up and I'm sure it will please. Another dish I love is called Caponata. A Sicilian sweet and sour dish containing onion,celery,tomatoes,garlic, olives,raisons,capers and a few I'm leaving out. Makes a great appetizer to accompany a hearty pasta dish.

Apple and cherry wood smoked ribs and wings.  Finished on the grill with a homemade Hawaiian glaze.  Served up with Brussels sprouts, Hawaiian rolls and watermelon.  (https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180902/243bd7c6f78bc4e835d5a0475efd2624.jpg)(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180902/354ec4f2350f64c4f7c13d79b2f66c79.jpg)

Another recent batch of wings:

Another day, another flavor experiment. This experiment's flavor: Atomic City Caribe sauce.

Since this experiment was a last-minute decision, I had about an hour to let the wings dry in the fridge before baking, vs. the normal 24 hours. Skin turned out slightly less crispy (no surprise), but very much on par when I bake wings that were marinaded overnight, vs. left to air-dry. Quite tasty.

Prepped the wings as normal; seasoned w/ Penzey's adobo seasoning. Usual oven-cooking method: 1 hour @ 400° on a stainless cooling rack, flipped halfway thru. Once cooked, basted both sides of the wings w/ Caribe, back into the oven for ~7 more min to let the sauce set up.

Showing my work:

Those looke great.  I've got a batch of wings in the fridge now drying. FWIW, if you don't have a lot of time, pat dry, toss them in a tsp of baking powder and put them on the cooling rack in the fridge for an hour or so. 
Tomorrow's wings are getting a dry rub (on now) and grilled.

Thanks, JT, much appreciated.

I usually let my wings dry out overnight in the fridge, on a stainless cooling rack set in a rimmed baking sheet, with no other treatments except for a light dusting of salt.  I may try the baking powder method again sometime (I've had issues with past batches of wings where I got a rather unpleasant off-flavor from the baking powder).

As far as cooking wings goes, grilling is my fav method by far.  Lotsa good flavors that you can't replicate in the oven or deep-fryer, IMO.

And if you have some on hand, a little bit of pecan wood for some smoke character is killer on grilled wings.  I usually add a lump on top of the grate, over the coals, while the wings cook indirectly, before searing.  I can post a pic if you want to see what I'm describing.

Really nice smoke character, and plays nicely with Frank's wing sauce or straight-ahead cayenne and butter.

I'm always open to seeing wing cooking methods!  I have a hard time finding pecan, but usually have apple, cherry, hickory and mesquite on hand. 
Were using a spice mix called Kick'n Chicken from Weber - I don't usually buy premade spice mixes but my wife and I both remember liking this one from a few years back.  Giving it a try again.

Looks great!! I also do a 3 day ferment. Ill let mine sit at room temps over night after mixing then in the refrigerator for another 24 hours and finally on day 3 I'll put the dough in the wine cooler which is set at 59* until I get home from work. I normally use a 70% hydration depending on the style of pizza being made. I swear I see a smiling face in that slice of pizza!

Yet another batch of wings:

(https://i.imgur.com/EConroR.jpg)

Let the wings marinade overnight in store-brand balsamic vin.

Indirect cooked for ~1 hour, flipped halfway through, seared, sauced, and a 10-min rest on the indirect side to let the sauce set up.

Also used some pecan over the coals during the indirect cook for some smoke. Made the wing sauce taste extra-spicy, which I thought was good.

Nothing special, just plain ol' store-brand buffalo wing sauce.

Something about the smoke + the balsamic vin combo really made the wing sauce pop on these wings, which was really nice.

Lunch from earlier this week: a veggie-based Philly-ish sammich.

Since we don't eat much beef in our house these days, I needed a backup. Solution: mushrooms.

Baked half a baguette to start. Once baked:

Chopped up some green bell pepper and onion, along with 4 oz of sliced mushrooms, and deployed them on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Sprayed with cooking spray, generous dusting of steak seasoning, then roasted @ 350°F for 15 minutes. Added sliced/pickled banana peppers, then back into the oven for 10 more minutes.

While the veg was roasting, split the baguette in half length-wise, smeared one side w/ mustard, the other with mayo. Lined w/ aged sharp white cheddar slices.

Topped the baguette w/ the roasted veg, wrapped in foil, then back into the 350°F oven for 10 min to heat through.

Unwrapped, sliced in half cross-wise, and plated.

Verdict: unbelievably good. No leftovers.

More wing pr0n, nothing y'all haven't seen before:

Had our daughter and SIL over Friday for a belated B-day lunch for her, and wings were on the docket. Cool.

Nothing special prep-wise; just split the wings into flats and drummies, then a 2-day nap in some store-brand baslamic vin.

Got the grill prepped, the chimney lit (packed with lump charcoal), and the wings deployed.

Wings deployed and ready for to go:

30 minutes in, just flipped:

25 more minutes in and ready to sear:

Seared:

The money-shot; sauced, plated w/ celery and ranch, and ready to eat:
(https://i.imgur.com/TAHlEk7.jpg)

Turned out super-tasty. Son-in-law declared them the best wings he's ever had. Cool.

I thought they ate well; didn't use any smoking wood this time, but this batch didn't need it. Wings turned out juicy/tender, skin was crispy, and the magic of the grill seemed to amp up the spiciness of the wing sauce vs. what you get right out of the bottle.

Cheers.

Really nice! I baked a 70% whole rye sourdough yesterday. It isn't very sour and didn't get anywhere near the expansion of your loaf. I think the recipe I used called for a more refined rye flour and I didn't get enough hydration.

With rye breads I don't even think about the percent hydration in the recipe.  Rye is so absorbent, and unpredictably so, I just go by feel.  And I like to get just the acidity the rye wants without making it particularly sour.  Funny we both had the simultaneous inspiration.

My awesome wife prepared a surf and turf meal for us this weekend.  Ribeye steak covered with sauteed mushrooms, baked lobster tails, shrimp, loaded baked potatoes and spinach salad.  I normally grill steaks but these turned out great in cast iron. 
Using a mixer Santa brought for Christmas, she turned out a lighter version of a Southern specialty called a Hummingbird cake, which has a pineapple, banana and pecan cake with cream cheese frosting.  Santa sure is a smart fella...
All this of course needs something to wash it down: enter the Helles and just-tapped Best Bitter. 
I'd do this weekend again.

How hot does it get? I've tried some grilled pies using an aftermarket Weber grill attachment but have overshot temps.  Still haven't made one I'd put my stamp on.

It has occurred to me that in an Italian wood fired pizza oven, the temperature off the dome is much higher than off the deck.     Makes me think about trying heating the oven and stone as high as I can (~550°F) and then switching to the broiler and sliding the pie in.  If I ever try it I'll let you guys know how it works.

I get 550*F in the oven. I position the rack into the very highest position. I find the top and bottom are done at the me time this way.

I also have a Weber Pizza Oven but I rarely get it out anymore. Though I enjoy baking pies on it, it takes a while to heat up and then cool down.

Ah, so you're effectively getting that super high radiant heat on top just from the ceiling of the oven.  I knew something was getting you that nice bubbly char on the cheese.

My latest batch of wings; made these a couple of weeks ago (first batch I'd made in a while)

Wings prepped in my usual manner, seasoned, and ready for a date with the grill:

(https://i.imgur.com/up5hNuQ.jpg?1)

Wings deployed: (added a chunk of pecan wood to the grate right after taking this pic)

(https://i.imgur.com/jcnmfTB.jpg?1)

Thirty minutes in, and flipped:

(https://i.imgur.com/QttW9kU.jpg?1)

Sixy minutes in, sauced (wings sat on the grill for a few minutes to let the sauce set up), plated, and ready for devouring:

(https://i.imgur.com/GVYI31J.jpg?1)

Really nice smoke character, skin turned out crispy, and the meat was juicy and tender. 

I normally sear the wings once cooked, and before saucing, but this batch showed me that searing might be optional going forward.  More experiments are needed to confirm this.   :D

In Italy they don’t have what we call pepperoni. They looked at us like we had a horn growing out of our head when we unknowingly asked for it. Your sausage is probably pretty close to salsiccia picante. But in our three years we fell in love with the food just the way they prepare it.

Glad to see the rabbits didn't eat your tortilla chip bushes!  ;D .  Seriously,  that does look great, JT.  Could have gone for a plate of that when I wrapped up my brewday just in time to watch the Brownies roll the Ravens!

Today I smoked some ribs using river beech wood that Jeff (hopfenundmalz) sent me several years ago.  I used a rub from Alton Brown’s book, “I’m Just Here For The Food” and since there was room on the grill and time I put a couple of huge turkey thighs on there with smashed garlic and salt rubbed under the skin.  For a side I made some pasta shells and mixed them in with a roux with sausage and cheese to make a casserole.
We now have really good food for several days.

Each year the kids bring the G kids over and I feed them before the big event. We’ve been doing Potato soup and Chili for years. I normally brew a Stout for the big pot of chili but this year I went with Schwartzbier.

It definitely made a difference.  Honestly anymore I mostly eat fish and poultry, and your dinners always look great.  I’m grateful that I can still eat the occasional fur bearer, but it’s definitely occasional nowadays. 
Here are more my more typical ready-quick dinners, but it just ain’t cookin’.

Exactly the way he was. Took him to the er and they saw in his file that he was an alcoholic. They gave him a blood test and treated him like dirt. I told them he had had zero to drink. Didn’t matter to them until his blood showed zero. He was so sick of me dropping off fish, chicken, and veggie soup. Crazy that no one figured it out.

This disease, alpha gal syndrome, has only been identified for about 10 years. My doctor had to google it before ordering tests two years ago when I told him I figured out I had it. It seems it is getting more prevalent as climate change has expanded the range and season of the lone star tick. Damn dirty ticks!

Y'all make me look like a piker these days.  It's cold and snowy here, so I haven't been grilling.

Dinner last night was fresh artisan bread and split pea soup made with the remains of the Easter ham.  Was delicious.

Ribs the night before, but I made them in the oven so they didn't have that smoky bark that makes them outstanding.  Still damn good. Been making homemade fries in the oven, too.

Looks great, but you gotta keep the pepperoni above the cheese so it can curl and form a cup of glorious grease.

Anyone have a favorite pizza dough recipe? I've been enjoying Kenji's (Link below):

I like thin crust and use Peter Rhinehart’s well known recipe. https://www.101cookbooks.com/best-pizza-dough-ever/
It’s meant to be made a day or more ahead of time. It develops great air pockets and the cold water method that retards fermentation seems to really amp up the maillard reactions resulting in great color. I often divide the recipe into four instead of six doughs otherwise they can cook too fast in my wood fired oven. I like to keep the toppings minimal volume wise so that the crust and toppings cook properly. If you like a loaded pizza like take out pizza places this might not be the best crust.

I like Chris Graff's NYC style pizza recipe for the home oven.

I like the cheese on top because I like it to brown a bit.

I really prefer seafood.  Steak maybe once a year, burger maybe 2-3 times a year, bison a few times.  Maybe pork once a year if I'm at a restaurant where they have something that looks good.  But mainly chicken and fish.

We buy half cow each year from my brother-in-law.  We haven't been able to find hogs to buy off a farm for years.  I would have loved to get one this year and help out a farmer but all the local locker plants are booked up though August or later (my wife has absolutely no interest in butchering a hog ourselves).

That said, we smoked a 14lb turkey yesterday and it's delicious!  Now I'm hungry. 8^(

I really dig that - that's the main reason why I hunt and fish. I don't do it frequently, or successfully, enough to supply much of my family's food, but it helps keep perspective.

I could never raise and butcher my own hog, mainly because it would become a new 600 pound pet for my wife, like all our chickens and ducks  ;D

I have no place to raise hogs but if I needed I could butcher one.  I don't have the correct tools, of course, so I'd end up chroastibs (Chop/Roast/Ribs) cut.   ;)

We did 100+ chickens and a dozen ducks every year so conceptually I understand the process.  I really don't want to butcher, but I'd give it try.
I don't have current need to know where my food comes from after helping raise 5000+ hogs, 500+ Cattle, 2500+ sheep and other critters too diverse to mention, as a kid.   ;D  I know exactly where (and how) our food comes to our tables.  That's why I love marinated lamb, chops grilled to perfection.

I contracted alpha gal syndrome from a tick bite a few years ago so I get a pretty intense allergic reaction several hours after eating any meat from a mammal. I eat a lot of chicken, turkey, duck, and seafood as well as vegetarian dishes. I am actually getting really good at making great tofu dishes. I didn’t eat too much meat, maybe once a month, because I had given up factory raised meat years ago, which left fewer and more costly options.

Smoked wings and pork spare ribs.  Wings were air-fried after the smoker to crisp them up a bit.  Ate some with dry rub only and some with a jerk sauce.

I finally got my new pellet smoker/grill and broke it in with some smoked flat iron steaks with a Texas-style brisket rub. Low & slow for an hour over hickory, followed by a hot sear. My son proclaimed it the best steak ever, and put in a request for a weekly "Dad's steak night"  ;D

Flat iron was already one of my favorite cuts of steak on the grill, but smoking takes it to another level.

The dual gas/pellet rig is real nice for me. I can fire up the gas side for some quick dogs on the grill, or use the pellet side when I have the time for it. The two included temp probes are a cool bonus.

I've been smoking everything I can get my hands on since I got my new toy. Yesterday was smoked meatloaf. I used my rib rub on the outside, and made a Dr Pepper glaze to baste it with towards the end of the cook. Tapatalk is being weird about uploads, so no pics for the moment, but I will be riffing on the smoked meatloaf recipe a lot in weeks to come. I didn't season the meat mix itself too much, just to see what the smoke/rub combo would do. Next time might be a beef/sausage blend rather than beef/pork to amp up the flavor a bit.

What you want is not a sharper knife but a lame. It’s essentially a razor blade on a handle and bent a certain way to optimize cutting through the dough without ripping. They are cheap and don’t take up much room so they are worth having around to get perfect scores every time.

Damn, misspelled it, Stoemp, meshed root veggies.

Potatoes, turnips, parsnips, rutabaga, celeriac, and carrots. All cooked and mashed. It is hearty and goes with the beef. The traditional side would be pomes fries, but since we aren't set up to twice fry like in Belgium, it is the Stoemp.

Love root veggies, that would definitely go well with stew.
BTW I make frites fairly often at home, I simply transfer to paper towels after first fry then refry. The second fry goes quick.

Putting a 11lb beef brisket in the smoker tonight at 9. 225* for 14 hours. Rubbed with black pepper, salt, brown sugar, garlic powder and chipotle powder.
I will check on it at 6am and if and when it is at 165* I will wrap in pink paper and continue until 190* Remove at 190* wrap in foil, place in a cooler and let it rest for 2-3 hours.

Serving with homemade horseradish sauce on a toasted brioche bun with a side of cheesy potatoes.

The only beers on tap are Hefe, Fest and Barrel Aged Imperial Stout.

I did two brisket flats side-by-side today. One was unwrapped all the way to pull temp, rubbed with a paprika based rub. The other just had salt and pepper rub, and got crutched in foil with a bit of beef broth starting at 165F. The crutched brisket was super tender without falling apart, made a nice jus, but was more like pot roast than BBQ. The unwrapped brisket was just a touch dry, but the bark was amazing as was the flavor. It was cool to try two different methods side by side, and I'll definitely be going unwrapped in the future, possibly with a marinade injection to hold some extra moisture.

Good old basic roast chicken. Good quality bird, lots of garlic, rosemary, and lemon. Serving with garlic rosemary demi glace, Brussels sprouts(near the last of this years brop), and salad. Nice easy Friday night supper.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20201218/b86b9fa8fae7df2d939131bf7a68923b.jpg)

We've started putting roast chicken into our regular rotation now that grilling season has come to an end. I've been playing with time and temperature to try to get the breast done just right, but I haven't settled on a schedule yet. Low and slow, and hot and fast both have their drawbacks. What temp do you do yours at?

I was on a kick for awhile about this very question. I had come up with a method where I had started the chicken in a cast iron dutch oven, covered and breast side up on a bed of mirepoix, at 350F for 30 minutes, raised to 400F and flipped over for 30 more minutes, uncovered. I was exposing the dark meat to the highest heat and shielding the breast by doing this. At this point I cranked the oven up to 450F, transferred the bird, breast side up, to a rack on a sheet pan and browned the skin for 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile I turn the mirepoix and juices in the Dutch oven into a stock then sauce. It worked: the breast is tender, the thighs and leg meat falling off the bone, and the skin reasonably crispy. I still do this (well, pre-covid) if my wife and I are eating with others.
But what I almost always do is simpler and based on what we like and how we actually usually eat-we are both crispy skin freaks and like to eat the freshly roasted dark meat and then save the carcass and breast meat for soups and chicken salad or other leftover creations. So now I simply pat the chicken dry, season the skin with coarse salt and freshly ground pepper, throw some seasoning in the cavity (herbs, lemon, garlic, spices etc.) and bake in a preheated 400F oven on a rack in a sheet pan. Rotate in 30 minutes take out in an hour and take thigh and breast temps. Often it’s just short of done in an hour to 70 minutes and I turn the oven off and put back in the oven for ten minutes. While the chicken is roasting I use the neck and giblets, if provided, to make a tiny batch of stock. I strain and season this how I like for the meal I am making and reduce to a demi glacé.
This second method is super simple and results in an insanely delicious and crisp skin and melt in your mouth dark meat. The breast meat is also juicy if the chicken is a nice fresh locally farmed one. A frozen bird or factory bird may have dry breast meat, but that’s what mayonnaise is for.

Oh man, my damn alpha gal syndrome. I wish I could have a taste without breaking into hives and sweats. I once figured out how many prime ribs I cooked, the whole ones that something like that was cut off of, when I was a chef. I think around 10,000 believe it or not. About 500 a year for twenty years. As you might imagine many a sliver was cut off and dipped in au jus on the way to my mouth.
That looks more like Demi glacé than au jus. Anyway, picture perfect with the neat little mashed potato pond and the glistening collards and shiny roll. Yum!

Thanks Pete!  It was tasty.  I think this was the first we’ve made and I must say it turned out great.  Plenty of ribeye steaks but first prime rib.  My wonderful wife did the whole dinner today.  Potatoes, greens, rolls and that big ole 7 1/2 lb  primal rib section.

No pictures, because I refused to have the phone out during family time at the holidays, but we branched out from our usual Christmas ham/turkey yesterday. I did a Strip loin roast with Béarnaise sauce. It was my first time making a strip loin, but it came out fantastic. It will definitely be a regular on the smoker next year. It was also my first time making Béarnaise, but I used the "Foolproof" recipe from Serious Eats and it came out fantastic (although I think the butter/egg ratio was skewed a bit farther toward butter than I'm used to).

Christmas eve was our family tradition of making my mother-in-law's traditional recipes from Poland. In particular, her Borscht (which is clear, rather than the Russian style with sour cream) and Bigos (a sweet & sour cabbage dish with Kielbasa). Great food and great memories, despite the pandemic preventing us from having guests.

+1. I did a three bone standing rib roast Christmas. I would normally smoke it but decided to use the oven this time. I roasted at 250*F until 120*F internal (~2.5 hrs), removed it to carry over to 135*F, then cranked up the oven to 550*F for 10 min to get a crisp exterior. Served with horseradish, mashed potatoes and gravy. It paired well with my Porter.

Very similar.  We cut off the bone and seared the roast on cast iron to get the house good and smoky (can’t wait for the vent hood in next house).  Place back on bone in oven @ 200*F until 110* internal.  Shut off oven and left it in there until 125*, then removed and rest for an hour.  Finished it under broiler on high for a few minutes to finish crisping.  I may go a tad bit higher internal temp next time but not by much.  Going to have it for dinner again tonight.

Sounds nice Eric. Similarly we took advantage of no company to do something different. Christmas Eve was tapas portioned Feast of Seven Fishes and Christmas Day dinner was pheasant. Highlights of the tapas was lobster beignets and salmon ceviche. I roasted the pheasant and it was tasty but for such a lean bird next time I want to stew one. In particular I would like to make it into Doro Wat.

yup, biggest little improvement i've found in technique is just making sure to take strained cooked pasta on the side, make sauce in a separate pot then do the high heat 30-45 seconds in a pan together with a bit more olive oil. makes it a lot richer and just seems restaurant quality.

Football steak soft tacos.

Started by seasoning a flap steak with Chef Merito’s then marinading it in beer, sliced onion, sliced orange, and sliced limes for a few hours.

i removed the sliced onion and the juice into a skillet to sauté them down. Later, i added a tomato to the onion sauté.

i reseasoned and seared the steak on the kettle using Kingsford Mesquite.

Served simply with cheese, guacamole, taco sauce, the steak and onion/tomato mixture.

Cheers!

no, my days are just very repetitive. im home with kids to watch every day since theyve been out of school for about 9 months out of the last year with a short break when they were in school.

restaurants are pretty crap around here and mostly closed anyway. gyms are closed, so my metabolism is really slowing down.

just tired of eating a lot to kill time and little reason to go outside/exercise.

no politics, but this lockdown has seriously f##ked with single parents. i know some of them relied on school for their kids in the daytime so they could work. im fine, but it is tearing some people's lives apart.

A pesto and caramelized onion pizza with broiled oysters and garlic butter. Each time we were down to the crust of each slice that hunk of crust was smashed into the garlic butter and oyster liquor that overflowed into the pan.

I like both but a few years ago a Mexican restaurant in Hadley, MA started selling corn tortillas they make in stores and they are amazing while all the flour tortillas available here I have tried are crap (not exactly a Mexican food Mecca here). We keep our freezer stocked with those so pretty much always them for tacos. I occasionally make flour tortillas for burritos because we can’t get good ones but I haven’t perfected making nice thin large ones yet.

I occasionally make flour tortillas for burritos because we can’t get good ones but I haven’t perfected making nice thin large ones yet.

i live very far from mexico and any major latin american community, and my choices are to buy masa harina and make corn tortillas or buy big brand flour tortillas.

it is really disturbing that the manufactured flour tortillas can stay at room temp for 6 months. they do not mold. the ingredients list is long on them. terrible stuff imho.

Best corn tortillas I ever had were on the top of a mountain in Honduras. We were up there to retrieve the only refrigerator in the village that the traveling Dr kept the medicine in.

A lady was cooking black beans and tortillas for the kids in the schoolyard. She was making the tortillas by hand slapping them back and forth and cooking over a wood fire with cast iron pot and griddle.

She dipped us up a bowl of beans and a pile of those hot off the cast iron tortillas.  Man, that was good eats.

Second best was Rosa’s Tortilla Factory in Midland/Odessa TX. We stopped for gas on a flight between Ft Hood and El Paso. The tower let us borrow the Cadillac to go get lunch.

Yea, supermarket flour tortillas have a long ingredient list. My wife is sensitive to preservatives and can only get burritoes and wraps at places that make their own because she will start coughing for an hour if they are commercially made ones.

I’m in your situation too, and Mexican food is my soul food. I’ve gone as far as to nixtamalise my own corn and grind it to make my own masa. It takes a bit of planning, but not THAT much time. The masa lasts a week in the fridge. Good corn tortillas are just the best.

I confess I was ignorant of these. I suspect it’s partly due to to regional availability. I see from google Dairy Queen is known for them and that brings back memories as DQ was kind of the only thing my hometown had growing up until a McDonald’s came in my teens. Haven’t been there in ages but always liked DQ better, the burgers were grilled, they had fried clams, and Mr. Misty’s with Dennis the Menace on the cup. And buster bars!
As to the steak fingers: kind of a chicken fried steak with a peppery bechamel, no? Sounds decadent and tasty but sadly I would be allergic.
I am getting the impression that you, Brewbama, are not a vegan.

No, I am definitely a carnivore.

DQ was huge in East TX. Belt Buster (hamburger), Dilly Bars (ice cream), Chili, Steak Finger baskets, etc. They must have had regional specialties.

The gravy is just a simple Béchamel Sauce heavy on the pepper.

I guess the New England regional specialty was the fried clams. I preferred buster bars to dilly bars. The buster bars were also vanilla ice cream coated with the chocolate shell but were cylinder shaped and the top and bottom had a layer of fudge and peanuts.

After yard work, my thoughts for tonight’s supper turned to Pork Steak, Black Eye Peas and Corn bread.

First, i seasoned them with SPOG and seared them off like the ribeye i grilled Sunday. Then i placed them into a bed of BBQ sauce and covered them with the rest of the bottle. I let them percolate covered until a wood skewer slid in like a hot knife thru butter. Zero resistance.

I rendered some bacon and sautéed half an onion in the fat. I added a bit of SPOG and some hatch chilis. The peas went into this concoction for a slow simmer.

The corn bread was from a box and to those instructions I added corn, cheese, hatch chilis, half a stick of butter and a touch of sugar.

Cheers!

My mouth is watering just by looking at these pictures, incredible! I've just moved houses last week and I'm still living in boxes, so I survive purely on take-away and a few veggies that I get from the supermarket next to me. I still don't have a stove and I gave most of my kitchen appliances to my mom because I wanted a new start, so pretty much the only thing I could make would be boiled water because I still have my boiler with me. I have my eyes on some Mistral appliances (http://mistral.com.au/) and I think I'm just going to finish unpacking and order everything I can until my husband catches on and gives me the disappointed speech.

Saturday is our pie day as the kids have pizza on Friday at school.  Wife makes the dough in the morning and it’s perfect by dinner, then we each make and top our own.  Mine is a thin crust topped with a mozz/cheddar blend, tomatoes, onions, jalapeños, red bells, garlic and turkey sausage.  Some cumin and smoked paprika season those toppings just how I wanted them tonight. 
Lastly, a blend of garden herbs includes fresh oregano, basil, cilantro and parsley.  It’s good!

It must be geographical. I get some really great wild salmon at a little local country store that comes in and sells out every Wednesday. We get it probably 3 times a month on average. It’s Faroe Island salmon and has marbled fat like prime rib, absolutely amazing.
I have only had wild rainbow trout, or any other trout, that myself or someone else has caught. Any trout I have seen at a store has been farmed. In fact I wonder if there are stricter laws against selling freshwater wild caught fish because I never see wild trout or catfish, it’s always farmed.

Since this thread is very protein heavy I figured I would add something from the garden. This is an iceberg from the garden split in half with a creamy herb dressing made from dill, chives, and parsley and topped with shredded radish, all freshly picked from the garden.
For years I regarded iceberg with derision due to it's ubiquity growing up and association with school cafeterias, bad sandwiches, etcetera. Now, especially fresh, I love the crisp, crunchy deal it brings.
This was served with duck eggs florentine.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210615/d5d068cf5f185f073820b0290421c089.jpg)

Nice! I got a late start on the garden this year, so I'm a long ways off from this kind of meal.

I love my ducks, and their eggs are fantastic for baking, but I'm not sure if I could eat them poached. I've tried them fried and hard-boiled, but the whites have a bit of a rubbery consistency compared to a chicken egg that I just can't get past. Maybe I'll try it sometime to see if cooking in water affects the firmness of the whites somehow.

Since this thread is very protein heavy I figured I would add something from the garden. This is an iceberg from the garden split in half with a creamy herb dressing made from dill, chives, and parsley and topped with shredded radish, all freshly picked from the garden.
For years I regarded iceberg with derision due to it's ubiquity growing up and association with school cafeterias, bad sandwiches, etcetera. Now, especially fresh, I love the crisp, crunchy deal it brings.
This was served with duck eggs florentine.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210615/d5d068cf5f185f073820b0290421c089.jpg)

Nice! I got a late start on the garden this year, so I'm a long ways off from this kind of meal.

I love my ducks, and their eggs are fantastic for baking, but I'm not sure if I could eat them poached. I've tried them fried and hard-boiled, but the whites have a bit of a rubbery consistency compared to a chicken egg that I just can't get past. Maybe I'll try it sometime to see if cooking in water affects the firmness of the whites somehow.
I know what you mean about the whites, I don’t think I would be into a hard boiled duck eggs. I really like duck eggs in shakshuka. After cracking the eggs into their divots I carefully work the whites into the sauce while keeping the yolks intact. The whites don’t get rubbery, they almost become part of the sauce, and the yolks are sublime.
Do you have a rule of thumb for baking with duck eggs, like 1 duck egg =2 chicken eggs?

There's nothing like lettuce right out of the garden.  We made Thai lettuce wraps last night using butter lettuce picked 5 minutes earlier.  Crisp and juicy.

I usually sub 1:1, because most of the extra volume is yolk so in something like a cake it comes out similar but just more moist.

Happy Father’s Day!  29 oz prime ribeye.  Reverse sear method - smoked with mesquite wood for an hour and a half then finished over blazing hot coals.
Smoked & grilled chicken wing sections and shrimp for good measure. 
My wife assisted with an awesome strawberry pie, my oldest boy made the whipped cream.

We had garlic scape chicken wings last night with broccoli and Fava beans from the garden last night along with a caesar salad.
 I brined the wings in the morning and made them confit by cooking them at 250 with duck fat, tons of minced garlic scape, and some red pepper flakes. They were then crisped on the grill and served with garlic scape pesto. I think I will always confit chicken wings, they were the best wings I ever had.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210712/3e6d9fced0548b98571d42ce5828c07d.jpg)

Correction on the last name, it’s Iacopelli. Pizza dough was very good! Could have cooked it 2-3 minutes longer. Cooked at 550* in a home oven. Will do one more tmrrw because pizza is a duly requirement!!

Dunno if you've tried cooking pizza on the grill, but it works really well for thin crusts like that. You par cook one side, flip it and add the ingredients while the other side cooks. It's the closest I've come to pizza oven pizza at home.

Funny that you mentioned that! I would put my pizza stone on the grill, set temp to highest setting add wood chips in a foil packet and cook until completion.

It takes a little finessing but you can cook the dough directly on the grill grates too.

Not exactly cooking but an ingredient.  Extracting honey today. Some will be for cooking but a lot will be mead. I am about to rinse the cappings and will take a gravity reading then add more honey and ferment into a traditional mead.
Homegrown honey is also a welcome honey gift.(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210807/b50fee8ac26c098341e01d4f354a8e69.jpg)

This is a Hung Huynh recipe I got out of a magazine: shrimp, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, red pepper flakes, parsley (I much prefer the Italian variety), tomatoes, and white wine.  Bake at 375° until done (which takes 12-14 minutes in my oven).  It's really easy, fast, and tasty.

I like to serve it over brown rice, pasta, or lentils.

It’s chili season! This one contains bison smoked over mesquite and hickory, along with sirloin, pork sausage and a generous portion of pinto and kidney beans.

We had a small group (10 total) of club members over yesterday, ostensibly to help get rid of some left-over competition beers that wound up at my house.  Well, that idea lasted for about 45 minutes (they don’t call them left-over competition beers for nothing!) before the good stuff started pouring.

Anyway, I pulled together a double batch of Wild Boar Stew which is probably the best dish I’ve ever made.  Made about 6 finished quarts.  The recipe was for Pork Stew with Sweet Potatoes and Prunes, in which I substituted wild boar stew meat for the pork.  Tweaked the recipe here and there including using pork stock instead of chicken stock, using about 1.5 times the amount of stock, added a few minced jalapeños, and adding some red wine vinegar at the end for some depth.  Pretty amazing, so much so that people took some home to where I don’t have any left over.
