  • This might not get lots of traction because people here love their spatched birds, but I love whole roasted chicken.  Get the egg to 425-450 and preheat the skillet for about 20-35 minutes, then put the bird in and let it go for about 50 minutes, un…
  • Thanks all! @dldawes1 - gochujang is a fermented red chili paste, I really like using it because it offers some funk and depth that you don't usually find with spicy ingredients.   Doenjang is a fermented soybean paste - kind of a Korean miso, but…
  • Just got an email that they've released a faster thermopop - 3-4 seconds for $29, that is a great deal. It's even cheaper, $24 each if you buy 5 or more.  That's what I did when I got mine, they make great gifts, I gave away 3 or 4 and have 1 in ou…
  • Followed that up tonight by taking advantage of the wife and kid not being around.  Marinated pork belly strips in a combination of gochujong, canola, soy, fish sauce, grated ginger and garlic. Griddled that up, and served with brown rice and green…
  • Editing vacation photos.  And drinking.
  • Helping SWMBO pack for a work trip and pondering what I'm going to cook and eat while she's gone.
  • Also, if you're concerned with price just buy a thermopop.  Only difference is a few seconds longer to take a reading.  
  • Drinking a Guinness and watching the Olympics.
  • ^^^^That photo is at Schoodic Point from about 3 weeks ago.  You can message me with any other questions if you'd like - I grew up around Bangor, around 45 minutes from Acadia.
  • saluki2007 said: Drink lots of Allagash! IMHO, Maine Beer is slightly better than Allagash, especially when you get really fresh bottles.  Their tasting room is just south of the Bean's flagship in Freeport on R…
  • Love working from home on Fridays
  • caliking said: I know this doesn't help much, but I'm with @fishlessman. I hope the vegans are considerate enough to think about your dietary desires when they are planning meals. The salad idea sounds nice and easy. For soup options - gazpach…
  • tgs2401 said: I like the Royal Oak. I made the mistake of buying a bag of private label Fresh Market lump and it was crap. Sitting on top in the bag was a metal bracket and the lump burnt really fast with a lot of ash. My preference is Rockwood…

  • The Thirsty Monk in Asheville, NC has an appetitizer called 'Pint of Bacon' on its menu.  It is a pint glass, filled with cooked strips of bacon. Don't overthink things. 
  • 150 is pretty solidly Medium-well, medium is generally 135-145. I think your plan is OK,  decide exactly where you want the final temp and pull 10 degrees shy of that.

  • Looking at photos of flood damage about 10 miles from the house and feeling thankful that we only got mild water in the basement.

  • TEggSun said: @DMW, they seemed ideal.  They were about 1.5" thick.  I cooked them direct at about 450 degrees on a cast iron grid.  I pulled them at 135 IT.  My timing was bad, so they ended up resting for about 25 minutes.  I wonder if that h…
  • smokeyw said: bgebrent said: Thermapen.  Then learn how to use your cooker.  Thank you sincerely for your service. I agree with this. However, I have to say I never thought of a Thermapen as a BGE accessory. It is really just a …
  • Got 2 mixed cases of Maine Beer Company from the tasting room when I was in Maine.  Thinking of how to get 3-4 cases next time I'm through without making the wife I'm crazier than she already does.
  • We just picked this up for salt and have really been liking it. I have a 6" Magnum that we got in 2009 or 2010 and have had no problems with it, so I would recommend that as w…

  • I know you're retired so this might not be a big concern, but in general I'd add in a question about your schedule.  If you consistently only have 25-35 minutes to get dinner done, you might want the speed of a good gas grill to be ready to cook.  I…
  • I just heard a really good review of Monteverde - the restaurant from the Season 9 Top Chef runner-up.  You might not be able to get in, but if I were going to be going to Chicago I'd try to get to Alinea - almost the definition of a food adventure.…
  • Polished this off:
  • Looks good.  I got some of that Lane's in the exchange, haven't tried it yet, but I see it going on some lamb blade chops this week.
  • Plus one to the thermopop. Definite recommendation for whichever you choose, go to their website and sign up for emails, they run sales on both very frequently.  When I got my thermopops they were offering them at like $20 each if you bought 5 or m…
