    Not bad for a first timer. Pleased with the outcome but definitely not switching careers to full time brisketeer yet. Flavor is great, tenderness is great, didn’t get that flop over the knife thing.  Cooked a lot faster due to being smaller than the reference recipe.  Had a couple of frustrating turns during slicing but that stuff was headed to sandwichville anyway.   

    As long as you and the others enjoyed it, you nailed it.  Contrary to Allen Iverson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eGDBR2L5kzI  regarding practice, it really is "all about practice" but you are opening at an extremely high level.  Great cook and results right there.  Way to nail the virgin cook!
    Time to go again-four week wet age a Costco prime and fire it up.   B)

    Thanks Cap!  You are a pro in a world of amateurs. Always appreciate your insights. 
  • My favorite cook on the Blackstone. I would eat that for breakfast right now. 

    If you want something different I do a chicken version. 

    Chicken breast 
    Onions
    Provolone cheese (I add pepperjack also)
    Cajun Seasoning

    Serve on a roll with mayo lettuce tomato. 

    You can add or take away what you want. This is the generic mix I use. 
  • Some dynamite cooks here, ladies and gents!
  •  Catfish stew with cauliflower rice tonight. Not bad.

    That looks great. Can tell the sauce is flavourful, just by the look of it.

    My take- Chef-ing is cheffing so I consider this the anchor to the great cheffing that is readily apparent here.  That said, if your cheffing also serves as an enhancer to another thread then that is a bonus.   
    The more cheffing exposure the better.  FWIW-

     Catfish stew with cauliflower rice tonight. Not bad.

    That looks so damn good. Could you share the deets on the catfish stew?

    Have been meaning to try cauli rice. Seems like it would pair well with the stew.

    Sure it would be an honor for a polished chef like yourself! 

    Getting back on low carb regimen. 


    Followed this recipe mostly. Did not have liquid aminos. Used kitchen bouquet and Worcestershire in its place for flavor and color.  

    Added Cajun seasoning for some more salt and heat. 

    Rice the cauliflower by hand with a cheese grater and used butter s and p, turmeric and paprika for color.

    Pulled pork last weekend for a grandbaby's birthday get together. New toy FB500's first overnighter went well; problem is I still woke up few times, to check FB instead of egg  :)

    ...

    Leftover, with sour dough bread, ran out of buns.

    This pic is beeeaaauuutiful :) Happy birthday to the little one!

    Edit: I wonder how long it will be before the grandbabies start asking "Grampa... why do you ALWAYS take pictures of your food??"

    My kids ask me that routinely. And I never have a very good answer.

    Daughter: yeh.
