Cure for 15 hours in the car.......

So I haven't had a chance to grill in two weeks and it's driving me nuts! So after a 15 drive back from Florida yesterday I'm cooking wings, baked potatoes and corn on the cob tonight. I also though moving a couple thousand pounds of rock to build a fire pitt for my daughters Girl Scout troop to gather around next weekend would be a good way to wake up the old muscles too! A nice glass of scotch or a cold beer will fix the problems created by thinking this way! photo 5009F15C-BDCC-4223-8C60-826786D78511_zpsezult2ux.jpg photo 53F14725-06CA-4B14-83BE-2205BE8744B5_zpsvfbqfpda.jpg

    Thanks Chris! Alright I need some advice from the wing specialist. I'm making a batch with Dizzy Dust finished with Franks Hot sauce because the wife and kids love them. I'm making a second batch with Dizzy Pig's Simply Zensational ( exotic galangal, ginger and sesame) and I would like to finish them with a Raspberry Jalapeño jelly I have but I'm wondering what might be good to thin the jelly?

    Wing specialists (in my opinion) are @cazzy, @Dyal_SC‌, and @NecessaryIndulg‌.

    Jelly usually gets thinner as it warms up.

    For sure was wondering if I could thin it with something that could add something to the flavor profile.

    Cool firepit! I'm not sure what the consistency is of your raspberry jalapeño jelly (never heard of it, but it sounds awesome!)... But maybe some sweet and sour sauce and/or an asiany sweet chili sauce might be good mixed in?

    Stealing from Cazzy's recipe...perhaps some soy sauce and/or some Mirin wine to compliment the Asian flavors? 


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Thanks @SmokeyPitt that's what I was thinking. Just wasn't sure what would be a safe compliment to the jelly. Wish I had some fish sauce on hand.

    I think a dash of Mirin will work. I wouldn't thin jelly too much. If you have some, maybe a dash of chinkiang vinegar or even balsamic for another flavor dimension.

    I think it would work well.  If you have Worccheesshherecherrhrsshire sauce on hand you can use some of that as well.  

    Like Chris said- it will definitely thin out when you simmer it so you may want to add in other ingredients slowly to get the thickness.  I have used pepper jelly in a sauce before and I was surprised how thin it was once heated.

    @SmokeyPitt‌ it definitely thinned, added on Soy Sauce and some Rice Vinegar to it and it's thinned but tastes really good.

    If you're curing make sure you use pink salt, and that's not Himalayan pink salt. :))

    @DMW are you drinking? You stumbled into the wrong thread! No curing here LOL just some cookin! The cure was for me from being in the car for 15 hours with three girls (5,9 and 42), do you know how many times girls pee when in the road? So here is the final product. The wings turned out awesome! Nice and sweet but with some really good spice.. Here are the jelly ones. photo DD2C92DA-203D-4FDF-B09C-5F4D2547FF0F_zpsubvtaubv.jpg The standard Franks. photo 96947792-5968-49E5-A81A-A6718229DBFB_zpshw1zmdbw.jpg And the whole shebang! photo E7C96F67-DBE4-432C-8FE8-39587F4D6DDC_zpsouhthne4.jpg Oh and the suds. photo 82461779-B01C-4091-9C3A-D588C4ECD86A_zps5k0msfbn.jpg

    It's funny because my first thought reading the title of this post was that you'd left meat in your car for 15 hrs...

    I am late to the party as usual, sorry!  Your meal looks fabulous!
    Another thought to thin the jelly:  fresh lime juice.  It will thin out the jelly, add a fresh clean flavor-layer, and cut the sweetness a tad.

    @NecessaryIndulg‌ I will try the lime next run. We were in Astor, about 45 minutes from Ormond Beach and Daytona.

  • LOL, when I first read your thread title I was expecting to see that you'd left some meat in your car for 15 hrs. and were wondering if it was still safe to eat.

    Nice looking cook and fire pit!

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
