  • Other than special effects at Halloween, I used it in a styrofoam cooler on a small boat. I surprised those who were on the boat on a insanely hot day with a water ice treat. Best I ever had.  That day was hot as hell with no shade, not even a Bimin…
  • Looks fantastic! Next time, consider untying them and spreading them out.  Let them warm on the counter then cook closely over a hot bed of coals to get a good amount of crust.  Just do not overcook.  I like doing it that way a lot better than in t…

  • ^ This.   My sear is as close to the hot coals as possible. 
  • My wife made a 3 ring binder for me and it has 10 sections.  Beef, pork, bacon, lamb...etc.   I document the weight, cost, temp, seasonings, wood (type and quantity) used, along with start and end times and temperatures to calculate cook duration. …
  • Looks like you had a great trip in every way! Again, congratulations on your 30th! This type of vacation is not for everyone, but if you up for a totally different experience, like the water, are slightly familiar with boats, want downtime, and be "…
  • That looks fantastic.   I would eat some of that.  Scratch that.....   I would eat a lot of that!!! 
  • Thanks @Focker. For the last 3 or so years, I have spatchcocked all my birds.  But the presentation via this method might work for wow factor when sitting on the table.   Thanks again!  
  • Darby_Crenshaw said: needs to stay under 40.  if there is ice, it's under 40. don't drain it.  icewater is still 32 degrees, not warmer than ice.  draining a cooler to let out melted water will cause the ice to melt more quickly. Thi…
  • @Focker. Did you notice a difference in cooking time or temp with the bird trussed that way like the video suggested?  It would make sense that the thigh would finish a bit faster.  Just wondering....
  • Legume said: Just drained about 6" out of the pool, cleared drains, still need to clear a gutter and make a shallow trench to keep water from pooling next to the house.  Getting a break now, but they say it's going to be rough tonight. …
  • Got many shorts today. Here is one: so...  Tuna from the dock neighbor for dinner plus some ripe Jersey tomatoes and cucumbers. Things could be worse.... 
  • @Lit  Sea Robin. They feel along the bottom and eat all kinds of little minnows and other little fish, crabs and shrimp.    They are flounder bait stealers. We typically cut them up for bait if we catch them in the morning.  Sizes range from 6" to …
  • Still fishing.  Trash fish, but still love the look of them.  Calm day went out 27 miles and it was like this all day.  
  • What a perfect morning to go (and try to) catch fish. 
  • Tossed up the option of going for tuna or 20+ miles out for flounder.  Decided to go for flounder since the tuna has been hit or miss. Got all set, then a knock on the boat. Dock neighbor just handed me about 5-6 lbs of yellowfin they caught today.…
  • TN_Sister_State said: They have one of the best organic selections with their kirkland brand, which makes my wife happy. We have had their ground beef, chicken breast, chicken thighs, drumsticks, wings, beef ribs, pork ribs, butts, pork loins, …
  • fruitguy said: i thought everyone had a small can of that in their garage from their father That is hysterical. I have one on my bench and it was from my father when I moved into my house 16 years ago.   If I remember, I will send a pic…
  • Elijah said: And so it begins. You may have bought your last eggs, but you have just begun your collection of used egg cartons! So true.  I have been saving them since I picked up the chicks, so I have about 20-25 of them. Those will be …
  • bgebrent said: Man they are soooo much better than store bought!  Good for you brother.  How many hens? I thought I got 12, but one of them was actually a "He" so he is happily living at my landscapers little farm. So I ended up with 11.…
  • lousubcap said: @northGAcock -  thanks for the background.  I would watch out for @Sea2Ski as I recall he has been cruising around New Zealand as well   Back In Cape May, on a boat of course!!  Today was just a cruise.  I have been stopp…
  • I never read the process, but for me 1&2 yes  3 - I have a smaller grate that I can put right on the coals.  I get the meat as close to the heat as possible. I do not time. By the time it looks good, it is done.
  • The donuts there are not so bad....
  • Hope you are enjoying it @northGAcock. Looks like the weather cleared up for you!   Got to get that trap in the water and get some of those delicious crabs they have out there!  Nice touch of the flowers too.
  • @DMW Damn Dwayne, you have been a cooking machine the last few days.  Where is all this food going?  (Good for you!)
  • I love my thermapen, but recently it will randomly not display the temp even seconds after opening.  Kind of like a combination of dead battery and/or bad contact.  But I have replaced the battery, so I know that is not it. 75% of the time it works …

  • Icing a sting. Ba$tard stung me on my back shoulder.  I think it was a hornet.  Lot bigger than a Yellowjacket, black, but faster and smaller than a bumblebee.  Thing is I was not able to focus on it as I ran otherwise I would know for sure.  Hurts …
  • So TRUE!    Thank goodness I live now, in the age of technology!!  
  • @dmw  Got to say - kinda disappointed there were no pictures. It is uncharacteristic of you too!
  • chadpsualum said: That steak looks killer.  So when you dry age and cook, you leave the 'rind' (or 'moldy) section on during cooking and eating?  If you do eat it...what's the taste like? @chadpsualum I do not trim it at all. Keep in mi…
