Enough Complaining Back To Cooking Kind Of

ryanttryantt Posts: 1,878
Chef Norah Grace draws inspiration from all sorts of places including many of you. She loves to watch YouTube videos and has found a few YouTube’s and  BBQ competitors who have been kind enough to help her/us along this BBQ adventure.   Tonight’s cook is inspired by Girls Can Girl and John Setzler of KJ and Man Cave Meals.  
Tonight she is making a spiced pulled chuck roast seasoned with a combination of bearded butcher blend seasoning ( Chipotle and Hot ) and a base layer of Dizzy Pig Molé. The sauce is 1 cop of beef broth, 3 rehydrated ancho chillies and the nice of 2 limes and one orange.  

she did all of this work while I wa on the phone with @SaintJohnsEgger.  I would like to honestly thank you for taking the time out of your day to chat with me.  It was nice to get to talk to and just take my mind of things for a little while. 

Here are a few photos hid the progress so far.

  • Just glad I could help. 

    You will need to let us know how that turns out. She is doing it in the Instant Pot?

  • Don’t know what transpired between you and @SaintJohnsEgger - and don’t need to - but it sounds like it was a really positive exchange. Kindness is awesome.

    Many thanks  to all of you who have given me words of incouragment.   It is extreamly helpful. Sometimes when things are not going as we think they should it can be disheartening.

  • @SaintJohnsEgger: TMI. No need to describe your “runs” nor the excessive staining they cause, please. 

     ;)

    I remember seeing a kids barbecue championship on Food Network a couple of years ago. There is some decent money for the prize.
  • ryanttryantt Posts: 1,878
    @Gulfcoastguy when it was on Norah kept saying dad it doesn’t count because they were using gas grills.  She kept saying how disappointed she was that they weren’t using real Weber grills

    Glad things are trending upward.  Great demonstration of skills and talent.  That plate is outstanding as was the entire cook.  Dang-

    Forgot to say it but our new favorite kitchen tool is they fatseperator we purchased right before Christmas.  We got it  to separate the fat from the good dripping so we could brush it over the slices as they were served. Tonight it was used to separate the fat from th broth be for she poured it over the polenta cakes and beef.  

    It honestly makes ales all the difference the workd best 12bucks I’ve spent.

    oh and Norah Grace wants me to tell everyone to follow her on Instagram @the_buckey_bbq.  

    After talking to some one of you and consulting my wife, her account has my name on it and she and I have to access it together.  This is a way for us to monitor what’s being put on itt. Yet it givers her n outlet to post her cooks on and a chance to see how to be responsible on these social media outlets.

    I want to thank all all of you again for the help and support that you have provided for all of us during this bbq journey.

    Let me just say it I hate typing on my phone.  I find  tons of mistakes in what I’ve typed hrs after I go back and read the post.  You guys and gals must think I’m darn near stupid.   I promise I’m not.  

    Between fat fingers and it completing and changing what I’ve typed I’m getting real frustrated.

  • Sounds like a great endeavour for both you and Norah Grace. Solid approach re: teaching her about responsible use of social media. 

    No no need to apologize for the typos. Personally, I love when they result in funny, unintended phrases. Just hate when I then point it out, prompting others to correct them.

    @GrateEggspectations that is easy to fix. Just don't point it out until after the one hour edit time is up for the post. Then they can't correct them.

    Personally I think the one hour limit is too short. Whenever I use my new Fire tablet I get tons of typos. I hate typing on that thing. But its primarily used as a reader so I'm happy with it. Just need to quit posting from it.

    Have you looked into this?

  • ryanttryantt Posts: 1,878
    @Woodchunk I haven’t looked into that .  I would have serious reservations about said product.  I come from a family that had addiction issues that caused me to be take. Away and give to my grandparents at young age.  I know people say it is not a gateway drug, I just would be nervous.

    You can get the benefits from cannabis without smoking it. They make CBD oils with or without THC. I have seen first hand the impact that it has on pain management. 
    As a cop, I cannot use any of the products, but fully endorsed responsible use for pain. It is at least worth looking into the oils.

    In my line of work I could not use any of these types of products. Working in a hospital with patients and federal funding sources, it’s a big no no.
