    Beautiful colours on that shot. 

    I am new to the barbecue lingo. Is this what they call a “sausage partay?”

    Needed to cook up some bacon...made a BLT.  No fresh tomatoes so I used what I had, sun dried.

    I used to always do bacon in a pan until my wife showed me the way. Now, it’s almost exclusively microwaved with much, much better results for my tastes. Evenly crisp with no charring. About 90 seconds a slice, give or take. The only downside is that an appliance repairman once told me it was very bad for my microwave.

    @GrateEggspectations try the oven next time.  You won't regret it.

    I use the oven most of the time.  In this case I had about 6 pounds of bacon and I had the stove and oven going to speed it up.

    Microwave bacon:  We have a special bacon pan for the microwave.  I should use it more often, just that the throughput of microwave bacon cooking is low and it can make a mess.

    Studies show microwaving bacon is one of the safer cooking methods insofar as generation of nitrosamines in bacon are lower and nitrosamines are a leading cause of GI tract cancer.

    Synchronicity. I also had the nitrosardines top of mind in suggesting the microwave. 

    We have a cover for the microwave that is always employed with great success when cooking anything that splatters.

    We have a magnetic cover for our microwave that mostly lives in the microwave (sticks on the inside top).  Unfortunately it's round and great for small things, but the microwave bacon cooker is a large rectangle.  We cover with paper towel.  Still hard to keep all grease from getting out.

    Anyone got a seafood au gratin recipe they wouldn't mind sharing??


    SWMBO has had a rough week at work so I was thinking about making her some seafood au gratin (probably shrimp and crab) this weekend. I've made it before but I feel it can be better.

    I've searched around a bit on the interwebs and haven't found a recipe that jumps out at me.

    I'd consider posting this as a separate thread. You will likely get far more helpful input, as it will be more visible to folks.

    Killing me @Wooderson. Pie looks great, wings look mouthwatering 
  • @Wooderson - details on the wings?  Those look incredible.
