We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

  • Re: We have another one.....

    On one hand, I am out of popcorn from the entertaining threads that have been posted tonight. On the other, it is pretty low to try to put anyone down for what they do for a living...especially when it is a profession that serves other people. At that point, you have become a douchecanoe (a new word I learned in another thread tonight. I couldn't wait to use it.) @MrCookingNurse, THANK YOU for what you do. I see nurses both male and female do amazing work on a nearly daily basis.

  • Re: Help with cinnamon rolls on the baking steel.

    Results post!! I lined a small baking sheet with tin foil and prepared 4 thick slices of bacon. I used 1 tsp of cayenne fine ground pepper, and 1/2 cup of brown sugar. I completely covered the bacon with the pepper brown sugar mix and baked on the egg with plate setter legs up, grid, and then baking sheet flipping the bacon every 5 minutes. I had the dome temp at 350-400. I then put the bacon on some paper towels and covered with tinfoil. I then put the baking steel on top of the grid and reduced egg temp to 325-350 dome. I let the steel heat up for 20 minutes per @Solson005 suggestion. Then a near disaster struck!! I had the cinnamon roll dough sitting on the counter throughout the process, and when I opened the container, the dough and frosting exploded in a huge doughy/ frosting mix mess. I was able to catch everything, and re rolled the rolls the best that I could, and salvaged the majority of the frosting. It looked like a cluster for a solid 5 minutes. With disaster averted, I placed the rolls on the baking steel and closed the dome. I was using the top of the daisy wheel and a Surefire flashlight to take peeks. At 12 minutes or so, I thought that I had better take a peek at the bottom. As many of you thought, I came close to burning the bottom. I didn't think the rolls were cooked all the way through though, so in my moment of dispair, I flipped them. I let them cook like that for about 45 seconds, and then thought...crap, I gotta put the bacon on top. So I flipped them back over, checked them, and they were perfect. They couldn't have come out any better!! My very strong advise should you attempt this is....watch VERY closely. Here are the pics.
  • OT Air Force One

    President Obama came to Oklahoma today to tour the devastation in Moore,OK caused by the tornado. I am on duty today, and was tasked with standing by on a firetruck during both the landing and take off of Air Force One. I was able to get a few decent pictures. No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, it is neat to be involved in the protection of our President.
