    Everyone else has agreed to leave politics out of this one just like the original, so if you can leave this sort of thing for elsewhere I think we'd all appreciate it, thanks.

    I've been using my leftover pickle juice for brining wangs lately; this week I tried boneless skinless breasts.  I brined them over the first night, then air-dried them on a rack in the fridge the second night (Note to Self: air-drying wangs overnight gives you crispier skin, if your cheekun is skinless it just dries out; don't do that again dumbs*t!)  
    Before going on the Egg I sprinkled two of the breasts with Montreal Cheekun Seasoning, just pepper on the third.  These were really, really good, despite the leathery surface.  
    Added to the rotation.

    Pizza in the WFO tonight, residual heat to cook the turkey tomorrow. 


    Interesting.  If you get that roaring tonight, what temp will it still be at tomorrow morning?
    John, with the floor temp around 1,200 F - the thermometer in the dome will be reading around 400 F tomorrow and slowly drop over the course of the day.

    I tried the pickle juice brine on wings once. I wasn't a fan. Maybe it was the particular pickle juice I used...Anyways, I've been wanting to try it on breast

    Now you’re talking. Do you spread the coals evenly over the oven floor after pizzas when it’s time to close up for the night?

    Large BGE & Mini Max for the wok. A few old camp Dutch ovens and a wood fired oven. LSG 24” cabinet offset smoker. There are a few paella pans and a Patagonia cross in the barn. A curing chamber for bacterial transformation of meats...

    After pizzas my oven is usually about 400 the next morning. If I’m baking at lower temps it will run 300 the next day. If @C@CTMike oven is like mine though it will run at 300-350 for hours and hours on residual heat.

    Since I have the weber going, figured I would smoke some chicken tenders for the dogs.

    Another pizza pie tonight - brie, green apple, and truffle oil.  Ricotta base.


    Nice Za. Shared the image with my wife, who has a gift for baking. She said, “I am making that.” Thanks John. Making my life better.

    Pics of cooked skinless breasts are almost as ugly as pics of me.

    It’s super easy.  Slice the brie and green apple thin as you can, layer over a base of ricotta and drizzle with the truffle oil.  

    The dough just works as a delivery mechanism for all that goodness.  I bet you can find a pretty good wine to pair with it too.  Enjoy!  And tell your better half I said hello ;)

    Sounds fantastic. But it looks like the underside of an elephant’s foot. 

    I imagine it looks the same way coming out.

    Just picked up our feast from Cracker Barrel - all I gotta do is turn on the oven. Judge all you want, it’s been one of those years and we ain’t cooking 
    We did that several years ago and it was one of the best Thanksgivings we’ve had. There is something to not having to cook for a bunch of people and enjoying your time.

    See now @Focker would’ve gone with something like “do you even eat with your eyes, bro?”

    John. Please don’t pick on those who are grieving and unable to move on. Give the snowflakes time to melt.

    I read something the other day about elephant foot (and trunk) are the most desirable parts to eat.  The description of the pad coming off after cooking....is...

    Anyway, doubt that audience is here, but in some cultures that's a compliment.
