    Broke in the black stone with bacon, chicken thighs, and smashed potatoes. Also cranked out some home made ice cream, the kids hit the paddle when I pulled it out like a couple lions on a water buffalo.

    Great finish on that chop.  Lamb for the win.
    Several decades ago (old here-at that time the drinking age was 18 yo) I was fortunate enough to take (for credit) a college course in Wines, Spirits and Beers.  It did include a drinking lab every Thursday afternoon.  Louis Latour was a highly regarded pour.
    I have since walked away from wines but the knowledge I got from that course has served me well over time.  Some important things you never let go.

    Haven’t posted in a while. Cedar planked salmon and oven roasted green beans.  Keeping it simple tonight. Salmon was rubbed with meat church honey hog.
    Salmon looks wonderful, but the side also has my attention. We have green beans frequently and also roast vegetables frequently, but I have somehow never roasted green beans. Anything special you do with them?

    Salmon on BGE with little alder wood for smoke - I put salmon on large cast iron, 3 or so mins skin down, flip for flesh side down for some color, flip back and pull just before IT hits 140 (just as first site of white albumin) - kids love it too . . Blistered Green beans my fav recipe (try it)  posted below - tarragon tartar sauce is an old fav that @Griffin posted many moons ago

    That looks terrific, @NDG!

  • Two pack was 11.5 lbs and there is a weight differential of at least a lb. Temp in smaller is 10-15 degrees higher so it goes in the cooler sooner.
  • Pulled the smaller one

  • Super quick scallops and red beans with andouille 
    Louis Camille would be right proud of that Maillard reaction.

    Picked up two packets yesterday. Used about 4 pounds of the flat to start some Flemish beef stew. Just browned it.

    Leftover pulled pork green Chile enchiladas. Trying to do better with reusing leftovers. Turned out pretty good and was easy to make. 
    Nice. We make those all the time.  Great use of leftover pulled pork.

    Im no @caliking but I do what I can. Fried up some red onions then added some Curry powder and chicken base. Let that bloom a few minutes. Then added can coconut milk, leftover chicken and broccoli. Add to some healthy noodles. Then topped with a fried egg and some chili garlic paste.I wanted something different and this hit the spot.
    Dude... that looks all kinds of delicious.

    @CPFC1905 - That outcome is a thing of beauty.  Your contribution was the vanguard of the week I'm sure.  Great cook.  
    Next time please aim to get the ££ shot at the close so we watch the banquet develop.   =)
