What is cooking today?

Cured and smoked some bacon






*Disclaimer*: Any comment I add is simply the way I brew beer. There are certainly other ways that can be equally effective which other brewers may contribute. This is what I’ve found that works for me using my equipment and processes so I offer this for your consideration. YMMV

Really nice cooking, you all, and thanks for sharing the methods. Next time we go camping, I will implement all your advice and try to cook something better than I usually do.
I have always been not so good at cooking meat, and my favorite camping dishes are sandwiches and pies. Last year I got the coolest campfire sandwich maker I’ve ever had, and I have used it ever since. This thing is so multifunctional that I do both cooking sandwiches and baking hobo pies in it. And both these dishes taste great because you don’t need a lot of skill to make them. That’s why I like them – simple and tasty.

That's really bad I can't post a video of what I cooked yesterday. I bought several rib-eye on the bone, more specifically Tomahawk.
My way of cooking this steak is now pretty simple, but takes time to prepare:

1. Generously season all parts of the steak and place in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
2. Low and slow roast with a quick and hot sear at the end
3. Keep sauces, mustards, and other rubs away!

Today, I will cook air fryer pork chops following a new recipe similar to rib-eye on the bone. I hope I'll be delighted by the final result.

My way of cooking this steak is now pretty simple, but takes time to prepare:

1. Generously season all parts (including the sides) of the steak with kosher salt and place uncovered in an odorless refrigerator for 24 hours.
2. Low and slow roast with a quick and hot sear at the end
3. Keep sauces, mustards, and other rubs away! This steak is packed with flavor!

thats exactly what i've learned to do. i mean exactly, even 24 hours and dry kosher salt. ive been using the BBQ for the end sear this summer since it adds flavours i like and i can get it as hot as i wanted it, while my stovetop is pretty weak.

Bottled up a dozen lacto-fermented hot sauce! Jalapeño pepper base with kiwi, scallions, garlic and cilantro. It has a nice kick but could have used an additional fruit such as pineapple to add a touch more sweetness. This is taco bound today!!

Made a 12 lb. pan of eggplant parmesan yesterday to clean out the eggplant and zucchini crops. We'll freeze most of it for winter eating.

That's awesome! We do the same thing every year because our eggplants are very abundant. After gifting many of our fruits to friends and family we still have many to prep and freeze for winter! One of our favorite ways is to slice, bread and fry the eggplant, vacuum seal then when we are desiring some eggplant just place in the toaster oven to heat tru and crisp up!!

Another way that we like to preserve eggplant is to make caponata! A sweet and sour ( agrodolce) A delicious melody of eggplant, tomatoes, onions, garlic, capers, celery....blah,blah,blah then can it to last all winter long and then some!!

last pic is perfect. ive been wanting to make a homemade smoker for a while but im just too lazy. probably a spring/summer project. hoping to make it big enough that i could also put in a mesh container of a few lbs of grain and really smoke a good quantity too.
