  1. You could probably do that in Weber Smokey Mountain. Leave the water pan empty or with very little water in it and the thing will cook pretty hot.

    Breakfast 2020!

    That BLT looks really good. Can't wait until tomato season.
  3. Stuffed with beef and rice, with onions green bell peppers, celery, garlic and seasonings. Sauce is V8.
  4. Working from home today. Good price on pork butt so I fired up the WSM.

    Nothing brings the kid home from the dorms like chicken and noodles.
  6. Zeemanb hasn't posted here for a long time. For several years he used a hot air popcorn popper. I still do. He said he got a real roaster, Belmor I think.

    Dinner 2020

    My wife and I had pizza and beer there. Really good pizza. We went after spending most of the day at the Mob Museum around the corner. Also very cool.
  8. We have a couple. I don't like cooking in them because I think they cook too hot. Even at "low" setting, I get a pretty strong boil. If I'm doing low and slow stewing or braising, I'll do it in the dutch oven on the stove.
  9. Wings tonight. I tossed in some flour, cornstarch, and a lot of coarsely ground black pepper, then sprayed with pam. After cooking tossed in a mix of half Frank's hot sauce and El Yucateco.
  10. I tried one of Arby's fish sandwiches for lunch today. Not bad, it was served hot and crispy. Tartar sauce was waaaaaayyy too sweet. They have two, I ordered the non-gross one without "cheese" "sauce".
  11. I will never again taste test cellentani pasta for doneness without first making sure there is no boiling water in the hole. I got a nice blister on my lower lip.

    It's been several years now but Martin Yan showed how to break down a chicken in 12 seconds. Pretty amazing. Takes me a minute or two.

    Beef enchiladas.
  14. I have read that adding carrots will help tame the heat, although I've never tried it. Peanut butter works instantly when you've bitten into more than you can handle. Worked wonders for my daughter when she was building up a tolerance. Kind of a funny story, we used to make our own hot sauce every year from chiles in my garden. Usually, cayenne, thai dragons, ripe jalapenos, chipotles and whatever else was in there. We made a batch and let it sit in the fridge for about a week and then took it out to try it. Her boyfriend was over at the time. She commented on how it wasn't as hot as the previous year, but she thought it had a smokier flavor from that year's batch of chipotles. BF wanted in on the tasting and my daughter tried to warn him off but he had seen both of use try multiple tastes seeming unaffected. He tried some on a chip and his eyes bugged out and he started jumping up and down heading for the faucet. I was too busy laughing at him while my daughter got the peanut butter.
  15. No pics but we had; deviled eggs, spinach salad with warm bacon vinaigrette, lasagna Bolognese, and chocolate mousse for dessert. A lot to eat, we had the eggs and salad then took a break before the lasagna, and then another break before dessert.
