  • Oooooh!!  I want to chime in as well.   These things are the worst piece of shite ever to be foisted upon the unknowing.   Mine died several ways before I deposited it in the garbage 6 weeks after purchase.  Search the many 1 star reviews on amazon …
  • Nothing wrong with the KJ I've used.  It's a dense South American charcoal just like WGWW.  Sparks about the same as WGWW.  Burns about the same duration as WGWW as well.  Both are an ok product IMO.I've still got a few bags of KJ out there as well …
  • Guys & Gals I'm going to bump one more time here at $400 It's set up for two tier cooking with ceramic rain cap incl.  That's my best cash price.   My car was broken into Monday night so I want to clear some unneeded stuff out of the garage so I…
  • I think a tsp of fish sauce added to the marinade would be beneficial.Sounds good! - other than we can't get good papayas here in Utah.
  • I'd like to finish my participation in this thread by noting that I think all the ACE brick and mortar franchisees I've ever met have been friendly and helpful folks and don't deserve to be painted with the same brush as Ace ONLINE.It can't be easy …
  •  Yeah, voice sounded like the call center was located in India or Jamaica.    I think whomever Ace contracts with to field these calls practices "evasive problem resolution"    Eggcelsior said: Called again today trying to get them to honor th…
  • Called again today trying to get them to honor the coupon.  What a hassle over $10 but like I say, it's a matter of principle now.Asked for a supervisor and was told none was available but promised I'd receive a call from one.  I'm not going to both…
  • Thanks.  I shop at harmons but they are usually no good for beef ribs.  I'll check out Smith's.
  • Hey UT, from SLC here.  Is the store you find good beef ribs at a chain that might also have a location up North?
  • henapple said: What has become more and more expensive is buying at the "white people" grocery store. What's that? LOL, I forgot everywhere isn't Utah.  Any other than "ethnic" markets
  • Eating quality food doesn't have to be expensive.   My Wife and I no longer are interested in eating a slab/chunk of meat/fish with side dishes.  I haven't had a steak in 1.5 years and would wouldn't care to have one vs other plating options.Much of…
  • I have 3 enameled cast iron DO's.  An off brand (bella) 3 qt, a Costco oval 6 qt and a big lodge 8 qt.  I love them all for winter cooking of comfort foods over our gas burner.   It takes very little heat to simmer in them - just a trickle on the ga…
  • I like the wa handle.  My two 240mm gyutos are both wa handled.  Strange at first, then you realize your hand is never struggling for the right position on it.   PM me your address and I'll loan you my Nakiri for a couple weeks if you want to agree …
  • I have the DP Nakiri but neve use it.   It's one of 8 or so knives I bought a few months back exploring different shapes and seeing what I'd like.I bought a Konosuki HH stainless and could sell most of the rest and never miss them.  For tasks where …
  • Which knife do you have Lit?   My comments refer specifically to Tojiro's DP series, their most popular line. 
  • I take no joy in disagreeing with Lit, but my opinion on Tojiro differs from his.  I find them too thick behind the edge leading to pronounced wedging resistance.  Tojiro handles are also indifferently finished (sanded) and squarish in cross section…
  • What's fair and what will motivate a prospective buyer to pull the trigger are different things.   I bought one like new, used one cook, with nest and tables for $140.   I have a Large and it's just the Wife and I in the house so I actually wrung my…
  • I'm working my way through this one presently: http://www.amazon.com/Japanese-Hot-Pots-Comforting-One-Pot/dp/158008981X/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1354238804&sr=1-1&keywords=japanese+hot+potsI put an asian spice rub on 9 lbs of b…
  • That's a 7 year old post.  
  • You guys talking your Shun luv need to have realistic sharpening strategies in mind if this thinness & hardness is new to you.   Shun's vg-10 is a chip prone steel and won't respond well to burr straightening on a grooved steel as do the Wustoff…
  • TonyA said: I've had my fill with maverick. Yep.  I'll never waste my $$ on a Maverick product again.   Gotta hope Thermoworks will decide theres a market for a 732 like unit with a retail of $200 or less.  I'd pay it.  
  • You saying you don't get the sewer pipe smell?  Mine really stinks and I know it's a common complaint with these regardless of the reviews.   Reviews at CKTG are starting to become suspect - they haven't posted new reviews in some time.

  • The CCK is fun to play with at first, then one starts to notice a strong sewer pipe smell whenever veg such as onions, tomatoes cabbage etc are worked on.  The steel is so reactive that these goods will even dull the edge through oxidation.  It's no…

  • nolaegghead said: The Ute Tribe called.  They also want all the immigrants to leave Utah.  I think they're talking about the 1850s.   Clever.  How many Utes do you know?  
  • From Salt Lake City here.   We'd love to send back to you many of our SoCal immigrants who began to arrive about 25 years ago, looking for cheaper housing, better, safer schools and neighborhoods, cleaner air, lower taxes etc.   We'll even give many…
  • For a nice change try corn pudding.   Muddle up some of the 6 cups of corn and cut down the butter by a few TBS and this recipe comes out great:http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Corn-Pudding-5005Great for breakfast with a bit of maple syr…
  • The late Rodney Dangerfield's dog.   Talk about no respect...........  
  • Maybe mentioned here already:  Take the bird out of the fridge 35 mins before putting on the egg.   Fill some zip lock bags with ice and lay those over the breast portion while the rest of the bird is exposed to room temp air.   You can take the bre…
