  • Re: Official Labor Day Pizza Throwdown Voting Page

    The wife and I celebrated our tenth anniversary on Friday.  She digs deep dish pizza, so this throw down couldn't have been timed better.  My cast iron skillet is starting to get perfectly seasoned now, so each pizza turns out better than the last.  And yes, that's a 10 made out of pepperoni.  Happy wife happy life!
  • Re: How do you make hashbrowns?

    During a three day power outage back in June, we had to cook all of our thawing food.  My wife took some nearly thawed tater tots and rough chopped them.  I cooked a bunch of bacon on the Blackstone, and then made "patties" of some sort with the tots.  Salt and peppered heavily, and fried them up in the bacon grease.  It's far from scratch, but sweet Jesus it turned out well.  
  • Re: Do wooden tables hold up

    I have a cedar base with a concrete top.  I have to re-sand and re-coat with spar urethane annually.  But that takes about two hours.  No big deal.  The concrete top gets power washed occasionally and looks decent enough.  It can handle hot pots, and racks, and is fairly easy to clean.  

    No one has hired me to recreate the table, so it's far from a masterpiece, but it does its job
  • Re: Safe to eat?

    It's probably still in the trash can.  Plan is:

    1. Dust off banana peels and coffee grounds
    2. Reapply rub
    3. Double wrap in foil 
    4. Insert probe from Maverick into roast
    5. Bring Egg to 350
    6. Put roast on
    7. Drink heavily
    8. Forget that Maverick is dead
    9.  Take roast to an IT of 325
    10. Place roast back in trash can

    Thanks for all the feedback, fellas.  It was a $9.00 lesson learned.  I know I can salvage it next time. 

  • Re: Beef tenderloin going on today

    Tenderloin is a special occasion cut at our place.  But it's so simple, and so tasty.  I might need to reconsider what I define as "special".  Because it's Sunday, because I'm awake, etc. 

    Nice work! Wish you could have made it out to the Eggfest.  Looking forward to meeting you down the road.
