  • Those Costco wild sockeye fillets look great. I am a new member and I havent seen those yet . . . but I am going to have to get some later this week.  As for salmon prep - we are always very happy going raised direct on a soaked ALDER board (not a f…

  • I just got a new red bag (caputo 00 pizza) this weekend in Pittsburgh and made dough last night.  I tried something new and added 1 gram of "janes krazy mixed up salt" with my kosher salt to boost flavor.  Not sure if it will matter at all?  My doug…

  • Very Nice.  I have found that moisture is the enemy when it comes to BGE pizza.  If using fresh motz - I will cut early and let them rest for a few hours in paper towels.  If using can of crushed tomato for sauce - I strain a few times to eliminate …
  • Just looked at Naked Whiz review of it . .  NOT GOOD!  My only positive is the price here - paid less per pound than I do for my normal fuel (K.Joe - Red Bag).  Still maybe others will be smart and the review first (below) before following my lead. …
