Only a couple of posts so far showing cooks using what you got from your elf.

Should be interesting, as many had included recipes with the packages.

    Cazzy organized a rub and sauce exchange, About 50 forum members took part. The exchange was based on the Elfster web site which randomly assigns who you give and get from. People participating are called an Elf. Kinda like an inter-web secret Santa.

    Ahhh. I gotcha. I saw the posting about the exchange but wasn't participating so didn't follow the thread. I like the concept though.

    Nola that yardbird looks great!  

    I'm afraid I will have to be a copy cat (horrible pun intended).  I have quarters defrosting in the fridge now.  Gonna cook them up memphis style.  


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

    I told you I was a copy cat!  Used the rub from Charlies Meat Market in memphis.  I went with a Memphis dry rub, with a shot of Tregers on the side.  Dayum good!  Sorry for the terrible washed out pic!

    Lookin good smokypitt!  I asked myself after dinner last night, why don't we cook more leg quarters?  We've been getting uppity through the years and ignoring the 10# bags of giant leg quarters for $4.99 in favor of fancier fare.  I've been enlightened!

    No doubt man.  I just watched two 8 year old girls gnaw some quarters to the bone, and finish all their veggies! 

    BTW- thanks again @dweebs0r for the rubs.  This stuff was outta sight.

    Got my first chance to use some of the great stuff from @nolaeghead. Sous vided some chicken breast, made a compound butter using the blackened seasoning, Fired up the egg and heated a cast iron skillet. Brushed the breasts with the butter and hit them for a minute or two on both sides. On the side we had wedged red potatoes marinated with balsamic, EVOO, and rosemary. Love the seasoning. Next up is gonna be New Orleans BBQ Shrimp.

    @scooter759  - Glad you're enjoying the southern spice.  In the Quarter there's a restaurant that makes excellent BBQ shrimp (they're famous for them).  Trick is you need really large shrimp, like 12 count, but you could get away with 21/25.  You'll need to get an angioplasty the next day (read the butter amount) but it's a wonderful dish.  French bread to soak up the juice is mandatory.

    N'awlins BBQ shrimp esp from Pascale's Manale is one of America's greatest dishes.  I also used to like the Olde N'awlins Cookery down in the quarter but I think it never reopened post Katrina.

    I think if you google it you will find the cookery is alive and well.

    Haven't done a simple BBQ chicken in forever.  Bridget picked up a big ol' sack O leg quarters today, so I decided to do some straight up BBQ chicken using my Elf's Bootleg BBQ sauce.

    Marinated them in some Dale's.  Dried them off, cooked raised direct until about 150, then sauced them and cooked to 175F (Thermapen checked). 

    Did some veggies on the gasser, didn't feel like firing up a second egg.

    Delicious chicken - very tender and moist.  This sauce is absolutely awesome.  Has a very good, distinct citrus flavor that I love.  It's a thinner sauce than your classic KC or TX sauce, and a nice vinegar tartness to it.  Thanks Scott!


    Long ago I discovered the dales low sodium. I used it almost exclusively for many years. Do you find it overpowers your food? I did. 
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • nolaeggheadnolaegghead Posts: 12,218
    Dales is basically a strong umami (from fermented soy) brine.  I wouldn't leave anything in it for more than, depending on what you're marinating, a couple of hours.  Yeah, it can be overpowering.  Stronger the brine, faster it adds salt.

    The wife and I love Dales. It seems that different meats take on different amounts. It is really overpowering in poultry. We use it mostly on beef and sometimes small amounts on veggies.

    @nolaegghead - I bookmarked that BBQ shrimp recipe, thanks. The closest place I can get fresh whole shrimp here is about an hour from me. I can get U8 and U15 frozen shell on (no heads) locally. I know the heads make a big difference in the broth/sauce. Was thinking about using some Better Than Boullion Lobster Base to compensate. Also have some Lee Kum Kee shrimp sauce in the pantry. Anyone have any suggestions on this?

    @scooter759 I use that lobster base all the time. Yeah, either of those would probably help compensate - the heads are where a lot of flavor lies - we boil the heads and shells and make shrimp broth, which we freeze and use in many dishes.  Just watch the salt - I don't need to tell you that.

    The frozen I think would be fine.  Either size...I know you start paying a premium for the larger sizes. 

    We're lucky in that we can drive 10 minutes down the road where the shrimp and oyster boats dock and buy large head-on fresh shrimp for about $3.25/lb.  They're not sorted that well so you get some leviathans mixed up with around regular large....
