    @texaswig - great looking Cubano.  One of, if not the top favourite (nod) sandwich for me.  
    Louisville; Rolling smoke in the neighbourhood. # 38 for the win.  Life is too short for light/lite beer!  Seems I'm livin in a transitional period.

    @Acn We do a lot of pasta and the instantapot. So fast and easy clean up. instantapot mac and cheese is as easy as it gets. 
    Haven’t done many (any?) pasta in the IP, but have been meaning too. caliprince likes the creamy kind of mac now, so need to step up.

    Gave the interwebz sensation of butterfly chicken legs a whirl. I cannot recommend this enough. Much easier than lollipops and eats very well. I was very surprised at how well they turned out moist and delicious and just way better eating experience. 


    Never heard of her. So share the details please! Those look good!
    Just carefully cut lengthwise on the bone then along side of it a bit on each side to splay the meat out. It doesn’t show up real good in that picture but the bottom side will show bare bone. Gives a bit more surface area to season and they eat much better than regular legs imo. I didn’t take a bunch of time removing tendons but did cut off ones that presented themselves. I did these at 275 for about an hour and then bumped to 350 for 15-20 minutes I believe. I will do it this way from now on most likely. Big fan. You never know about the stuff you see on YouTube or tik tok etc.., but this one is a winner. 
    Thanks for sharing, tried it today and I'm a fan now.

    I was shocked by how much I preferred them to traditional leg cooks. Glad you enjoyed them as well.

    @GrateEggspectations - even at my age I have never gone down the cream cheese on a burger road.  But that looks like a winner right there. Congrats.

    Chicken + melty stuff + seasoning + fire.

    You're welcome.

    He’s right, though!

    smoked the breasteses from a whole chix. Go heavy on the smoke (pecan in this case; DP Peruvian-ish for the rub). Pick the meat off the bone, and pulse in a food processor for a bit. 

    Recipes usually call for cream cheese 8oz, ranch dressing vs. mayo vs. sour cream 1 cup, vinegary hot sauce e.g. Frank’s 1 cup, cheddar cheese vs. mozz for meltiness, rub 1-2 tsp (sweeter rub works well, IMO). Then, bake until bubbly. I added some garlic, chopped GBP, cilantro. Subbed Crystal hot sauce. Baked until bubbly, in the toaster oven.

    Would be happy to come! 

    You’ll be hard pressed to find someone less interested in sports than I am. caliqueen is the soccer/football  and cricket fan in the house. I’m just in it for the eats, and the booze :)

    Yes I did understand that Ozzie was right (even if being a wise-ass - sigh) but mostly what I wanted to see was what your twists would be.  Which you have now provided - thanks!

    I love the very causal mention of garlic, as if it was an afterthought.
