  • Thanks for all the response . . . and special thanks to @gdenby = =D>
  • It seems as though many bought the blackstone at the same time about a month ago . . . . how is it holding up?  Still love this thing? I am buying either the Blackstone or the Pizzacraft Pizzeria Pronto Outdoor Pizza Oven this moth as an "early chri…
  • yea I am big fan of smell test.  The family member I was speaking with does not have a science background, but he was wondering if the FREEZE kills some bacteria/pathogens (or something like that) and will help extend the "fresh" period longer once …
  • local in Cincinnati? what is it called?
  • I have that same IR Gun but always forget to use it. Goofy Q . . . if your egg is at 700F with your Stone in place, will the stone eventually get to 700F as well?    
  • cool, thanks for the link . . .
  • Very nice cook - fajitas in cast iron sounds great and bread looks phenom.
  • BBQ Shrimp . . . OH YEA!   FACT:  I have never had grits!  Nothing against them, I just never have ordered them and dont know much about them.  All I know is you Southern Folk would eat a bathtub full and wash it down with some sweet tea.  I guess I…
  • Thanks . . . @fence0407 I am no expert, but the last few WOK meals I have made from Grace Young's book have been great.  Finished plate is in a different universe compared to the Stir Fry I used to do on my electric oven with flat bottom wok.  I thi…
  • Looks Great, I got a large Turkey Breast in the fridge now waiting to hit my BGE later this week.   I am surprised to hear so many of you use Hickory with Turkey?  I have found Hickory a little strong with Poultry so usually stick to Fruit Woods.   …
  • Thats the perfect way to do it - so purdy - I am starving now! 
  • Looks Great.  I have not made a Tri-Tip on the BGE yet, but I got one in the Freezer.  Now I got this recipe Bookmarked for later - thanks.
  • nice post - love the solid/compact look of the mini max.  Looks sturdy enough to hold its own at a rowday tailgate with footballs flying around . . perfect.
  • Wow looks amazing - I LOVE oysters - is the yellow just melted butter?
  • wow that video is a classic - well done!

  • Many suggestions . . .but I agree with @phatchris & @smokybear . . . go with BONE DRY SKIN for crispy skin.  Rest uncovered in fridge trick is great, just avoid butter/oil . . . so one minor tweak . . let us know. 
  • Very nice!  I love chimichurri too but never made it at home YET.  Oh yea, and the bottled versions suck . . . bookmark.  
  • Speaking of garbage eaters . . . . what is the deal with Lobster?   When I worked in the restaurant industry I was told they are "scavengers" and only eat dead stuff, but recently heard otherwise.    Discuss.

  • Turned out great!  The smell of the spice/ginger/mint/etc. mixture in the blender was mouthwatering and finished lamb had great balance. Put a some kebabs in a pita last night and tomorrow night serving the rest of the lamb on top of arugula w/ some…
  • making bloodys today and found nice write-up from serious eats that reviews many brands.  Turns out my recomendation (stirrings) was the only negative review - opps!…
  • Thanks SGH, helpfull information.  I did a little research as well and found out that FALL / SPRING are the two best times for a project like this.  Now I gotta find a place that will rent me a box blade & tiller.  Thanks!
  • that looks perfect . . . my stomach is now growling
  • Very cool - looks satisfying.    I have a Q . . . is there a way to "level" out a small lumpy yard?  Our total acres is just over .25 with grass and a few small trees.  In a perfect world, I would do something in the winter/fall and re-seed in the f…
  • I was torn but I got a PS4 - so sleek and sexy.   Not a huge gamer, but I play Fifa 15 online, stream Netflix and play movies via blueray.  I have been happy with my purchase.
  • We love bloody buddies . . . STIRRINGS bloody mix is good but STIRRINGS simple Margarita mix (real lime juice) is amazing.  
  • Looks Amazing . . . this will be our next cook - thanks for posting!
  • Ok . . super late but Jesus-Tap-Dancing-Christ these Smokey Pork Tenderloin Sliders are unreal! Follow Chris aka @nibblemethis recipe for step-by-step (bacon mustard glaze/sauce is too good for words) and you will agree.  Its a new Tailgate staple f…
  • I am trying these for a tailgate on sat - cant wait.   Looks great and it has been on my short list FOREVER - so a little bump isnt all bad is it? 
  • I got a 2013 Jetta TDI last year.  I am in Sales and drive everywhere.  Previously I had an Audi A4 and a VW CC . . . so this is much less luxury/horns/whistles, but I have been very happy with it.   I learned that Turbo Diesels are a different anim…
  • looks great - thanks for the bookmark. Do you buy "bengali mustard sauce" and "hot & sweet ketchup" or make them at home?
