    - I felt like their recipes had a New Englandy kinda blandness to them. How do you make a Thai dish that doesn’t pop? Follow the CI recipe. 

    ive gotten away with putting an entire pound of white sugar on a brisket flat and letting it sit wrapped in the fridge to marinate before wiping it off and adding pepper and salt for a texas style low and slow. too many english and french canadians here that think good bbq is a hotdog cooked over kingsford briquettes. im the brisket king up here with that recipe

    Chris Kimball, who started that whole thing, was forced out a few years ago. He then founded a new empire called Milk Street. Milk Street focuses more on international foods but is similar to the ATK model he left in that he has a tv show, radio show, website, print publication,books, store, and just like ATK ... it too is always trying to upsell you on something. :)
    I was involved in an event with Kimball some years ago and took an instant dislike to him, as did pretty much everyone there except for the sponsor. Probably the most egotistical SOB I've ever met. For that reason alone I would never resubscribe to anything he did.

    That's disappointing as I've been listening to his podcast for a while now and I enjoy it.

    Been a subscriber to Cook's Illustrated for at least 20 years now. I added Milk Street when it started up. I know the internet is full of recipes, but it's nice to sit down with a dedicated magazine every couple of months. I still stumble on something new or add a new dish to my rotation a few times a year between CI and Milk Street.

    Just today renewed my Cook's Illustrated for 3 more years! It's more economical that way. $40 for the first year, but then just $20 more for each year thereafter. Like @SonVolt just said - nice to sit down and read - and I still like their approach to explaining things - even their failed attempts and hints leading to their final recipe and success.
