Little Chef is going to have my asteroids. The day started off fine. I started the prep for the Zippylip inspired Bubba Cakes and Bubba Bites.
Mixed up 2/3 ground beef, 1/3 ground pork, Taco seasoning, 1 egg, and panko bread crumbs into a bowl and gently mixed.

Next: cut the jalapenos into slices and some into a small dice. Took the seeds and veins out of the slices then stuffed them with cream cheese.

Filled the bottom of a silicon muffin mold the the "meat" mix and push down a pepper cheese plug for the Bubba Cakes


Some I topped with bacon, others with hard salami. Some are stuffed with a "plug" some, diced onions and jalapenos. Some of the Bites were down upside down. Put the dice mixture in first then the meat mix. Here they are before going on the egg.


Now for the Dog House part: I put a little too much apple chips on for smoke and was afraid that the creations would taste too smokey. So I opened the dome and open the bottom vent to burn off the chips.
Well that should take about 10 minutes. Being the a good Bubba and not wanting Little Chef knowing what I did to her kitchen, I started to clean up. 45 minutes later I looked at my watch and thought the bite should be ready about now. As I went out the door I just remembered that the dome was up and the bottom vent was wide open. Did you know silicon melts at 900 degrees? I do. :huh:


I sure hope Bed Bath & Beyond has those in stock. If not, I will be sleeping on Zippy's couch. :blink:

  • Shouldn't be too hard to find some replacements quickly. Those silicone bakeware are pretty common now -- can get them at Wal-Mart cheaply, no need to head to BB&B.
  • Hope the cat will move over. :laugh:

    bubba, glad I could be part of (in spirit anyway) a cooking catastrophe somewhere other than my house :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: , was beginning to think I was the only one that melted/blew things up;

    I recently learned that leather melts too, when I used one of my Harley gloves as an oven mitt to wrap around the cast iron pan (the other one was on my hand), later when I went to put the mitt on the index finger was almost closed up, sad day in Zippyville

    Leather doesn't melt, but that fluffy stuff inside does.. Petroleum Products at their finest.. :woohoo:
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,658
    That is what I thought, but trying to put the glove back on is reminiscent of that OJ scene, & there is no fluffy liner in these, very confusing :huh:

  • OUCH!! If you have a Linens & Things, check them least the one down the street from us is Going out of Business and has some really good deals.

    I picked up a Henckels Professional S 9" Santoku this week for $60. It might just be out store, but no sense going broke to get out of the doghouse!
  • Celtic WolfCeltic Wolf Posts: 9,773
    I will bet they are lined in some why. That lining is usually some petroleum based product.

    You must not be married?? :woohoo:

    She will KNOW those are not the right ones.. Tim is sleeping on Zippy's couch no matter what..
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,658
    oops, I stand corrected, after my last post I went & turned it inside out, & there is a thin black nylon looking liner in there, not sure after hav'n them for 10 years how I missed that :blush: , but, ya know, **it happens, I guess if I jam a dowel in there or something I can break it lose & get back to using them as my trusty egg'n gloves (the Harley is long gone :( )...

  • Heck Tim it's simple.

    Just Little Chef you need another egg. It looks like there is a hot spot in this one. "See honey", these on this side look pretty good but, those on that side, there must have been a real air path problem in the lump."

    Or / and.

    I was just following an idea Zippylip had. His egg is newer and if I had another egg these kinds of things just wouldn't have happened.

    Too late he's already on his way :whistle:
  • The question that needs to be asked:

    Where did all that vaporized silicone go?
    In to the air?
    On to the cooler dome?
    On to the other muffin tin?
    Onto the other meat pies?

    Probably a good idea to clean the inside of the dome before firing that baby up again.

    Sorry to hear/see that. Reminds me of the time I went out in the morning to find the transmitter of my maverick had somehow got in to the egg the night before when I removed whatever I was cooking. It was melted.
    Too much adult beverage. :(

  • bubba timbubba tim Posts: 3,216
    First off, Thanks one and all for your feed back and words of wit. Yes, I even learned that Harley gloves don't work in high temps.
    Interesting things happen to that silicon baking molds. You would think it will melt. It kind of does, but it turns to powder when you touch it.


    So after 4 hours all closed up in the egg, I can start the clean up. Good news, the dome was up so all the fumes escaped into the air and my plate setter now is really clean! Looking into the fire box it was discovered that there was pieces of blue silicon mixed in the lump. Rut Row. This could be bad JuJu. Yep, sure enough, all that new lump was contaminated and must be thrown away. So I grabbed the old RO bag and started to fill. I got most of it out and grabbed the shop vac.



    There was flakes of blue everywhere. Took some foil and dig a good job cleaning the sides and dome. Put it all back together and filled it up with fresh lump. Wait! what is that smell? Smells burning paper. Ahh crap! the RO bag is burning. So I do the Man thing and run and grab a hose to put the fire out. Hey, this is cool. The bag is filling up with water and the coals are now out. Hey wait, what is this black crap coming out of the bag? Chit, the bag is leaking black lump water. No problemo, I will just move it to the grass. That was close. Ok, back to the egg. Got the lump light but I still smell this smell. Now it smells more like plastic. Chit! The shop vac! Run, grab hose, squirt water, problem solved. Phone rings, Chef buddy is on his way to put the Beef ribs on the egg. Better move the bag of RO to the trash. Did you know that paper gets soggy when it gets wet? Yep, the freakin bag broke.




    and I just got a call from LC, she is having a really bad day also. I didn't tell her yet. No need to throw gas on a fire... :whistle:
