I don't recall ever making leg of lamb.  I looked back at some of old posts.  I've done racks but not leg.  Maybe you have me confused with someone else.

  • Cool story
  • Cool.  I have three given to me from my Mother, and a Dutch Oven I bought on eBay.  Now I have something to do in figuring out the age.
  • I got a new band for my large a few years back; swapping the older smaller handle with the wider one.  I didn't notice a significant depth difference, just wider.  Do you burp it?  Less chance of blowback.  Also get silicon gloves.  They protect you…
  • Say I offered $400 for the medium.  Is that a fair price?  He said in the ad he won it doesn't want it so maybe that's a decent price?
  • More new meat news;
  • I would grill them separately. They have different cook times. You could always reassemble them cooked like you have them uncooked. 
  • dharley said: Nine pound butt and a fifth a Henry McKenna 10 year. That’s my boy. 
  • I would Egg on Father’s Day, but this happened.
  • I thought this was a different thread.  Never mind.  Is this THE Friday thread?
  • Where do you find Pimento wood?  Actually never heard of it. The only pimentos I know are stuffed in olives in my Martinis and in Pimento Cheese. 
  • Yno said: I usually skip this thread. While I love my wine (screen name is Yno, pronounced wino...) I usually post in the morning, so I can't impress people with the fine wines I drink. Well, as fine as I can afford on my budget. On another for…
  • The “Impossible” Burger. Michael Symon now serves these in his B Spot Burger restaurants.
  • And so these aren’t healthy per-se but it give vegans a chance to eat “meat” again. As I understand it, when cooked, it gets juicy like beef. 
  • Gulfcoastguy said: That is what food eats. Oh. OK. So I can say I’m vegetarian 
  • So it’s no different than any other generically modified food that we eat. 
  • I broke my plate setter on my own carelessness. Didn’t try to get it covered under warranty. Bought a new one. Just sayin. Some things I may cheat the system one but on that one I know I was in the wrong. YMMV. 
  • The Hag
  • Yes. That looks tasty

  • That sounds delicious but at this time I’m looking for a butter-free version. Mrs. 500 is on the Weight Watchers lifestyle so most of the time my cooks will be low fat and lean. I want to know how blackening is done properly and I respect then true …
  • Can I sees a pic that they is cooked pleeeze?
    in Pig shots Comment by 500 June 3
  • It turned out OK. Not crazy phenomenal. Maybe it was the temp was too low like Matt sez. Maybe less oil also, and I just kill the seasoning on the cast grid. Dunno fer sure how to make it better. Here’s the pics. Two filets for offspring #2 without …
  • I mean Alder chips, not pecan. Almost ready to roll. Need my grilling beverage.

  • Keeping this thread alive. Evan Williams white label is my go-to mixer bourbon. Bottled in Bond so it’s boozier than the black label. 
  • SonVolt said: ...The last thing I want to do is open my Egg a month later and be smacked in the face by stank ass Snapper. Why would you wait a month in between grilling on the Egg?
  • theyolksonyou said: I can tell you, that McKenna will do he trick! To clarify, I think he means Henry McKenna Single Barrel Bottled in Bond, 10 year.  Not the regular McKenna
