  • Yellow Fin Tuna

    Neighbor Mark and Family gave us some Yellow Fin Tuna he caught off Venice, Louisiana during the summer. I cooked it tonight using a recipe I found on line but on the Egg instead of a briquette grill, whatever that is. 

    I knew to cook hot and fast and take 'em off but I forgot. 

    It's amazing what an extra 30 seconds will do to a piece of Tuna. It was still very good and there was enough leftover to make a tuna salad for tomorrow. 

    We're on the diet again so this nice little gift came at the right time. 

    Thanks Mark and Family. 

    Here are some pictures.

    He also made some Chipotle Potato Salad. 


    Delicious. And some left over to go into a plate of bushes tomorrow. 

    For those of you who like to keep count, I'm down 14 pounds since last Tuesday and expect to be 16 by early morning. South Beach Diet.

  • The Coop Party - The Movie

    The Coop Party - The Movie 

    As some of you know, we recently had a party at the Chicken Ranch. It was to celebrate my Sweetie's 70th birthday, but it quickly took on the air of an Eggfest. So we started referring to it as The Coop Fest. 

    It turned out to be two days of fun with a lot to eat and drink. Here's the story in pictures for those who missed it, as well as for those who were here but want to do it all over again. 

    I believe the 'fun' is obvious in the Movie.

  • Agujas norteñas or short rib agujas

    When Beli arrived for the Coop Party/Fest, he brought meat from Mexico. Here's how he described it: 

    ""agujas norteñas" ( northern needles). They come from the chuck cut which we call "diezmillo" and are not to be confused with short rib agujas. So when you ask the butcher make sure you ask for "Agujas norteñas" not short Rib agujas." 

    I forgot to take a pre-cook photo of them but here's what it looked like for tonight's dinner. Yes, he left some for the Chicken Ranch Staff.

    He cooked some at the Coop Party and passed it around to try. It was delicious, and very tender. I was surprised when he said the only seasoning is salt. No pepper or anything else. 

    They are fairly thin cuts and are fast to cook. Then just trim away from the bone and gristle. I think they may be the same thing as 'Chuck Steaks' that Lawn Ranger is always bragging about. But the Mexican cut is considerably different from the American cut. 

    Anyway, I just wanted to pass this on in case anyone is suddenly faced with the difficult choice between Agujas norteñas and short Rib agujas at the meat market. 

    Thanks Beli. Yours was better but I've got more to practice on.

  • Re: OT - Blackstone 36" Griddle is LEGIT

    I didn't want y'all to get too far ahead of me with the Blackstone Griddle so I bought one today.  I may be trying it out tomorrow after the assembly and seasoning.  Got the cover too.  May get the accessory pack if I can find it.  No use cutting corners now.

    Neighbor loves his, and Hotch has become a one-man sales force for Blackstone...  

    The worst that can happen is I gain a few more pounds.  The best that can happen is I gain those pounds happily...
