    Lunch 2020

    I had a Wendy's burger a week or so ago.
  2. So, as I typed that we could not get eggs, my daughter went to the Target on the University of Kentucky campus. Students have been out for moths. It was fully stocked with everything. TP, eggs, meat, sanitizer, all the shelves were full. Seems that's the place to get whatcha need.
  3. I haven't been able to find eggs here for the last couple of weeks. A month ago, they were plentiful.
  4. First in First Out LIFO = Last in First Out
  5. Looks like I was wrong. I could have sworn there was a minimum aging requirement. Interesting that Jack Daniel's claims it's not bourbon.
  6. There are some aging requirements as well. Also, I believe, once it is charcoal filtered it is no longer bourbon.
  7. Yeah, I pulled the old hide the crawfish in the microwave stunt. She didn't think it was funny.
  8. I thought this surprise was way funnier than my wife did.
  9. I bought some of SM's Yemeni a while back. It was more expensive than their other selections. It is really good coffee. Beans seem to be about the same size as the Ethiopian.

    Dinner 2020

    Beef and noodles. Leftover chuck roast and thinned out gravy with frozen egg noodles. Surprisingly good.
  11. I never wrap pork butts. I wrap briskets and sometimes ribs but never butts. There's enough fat in there that you don't need to worry about it. Get a remote thermometer and set it to 195. Keep an eye on your water pan. there's a distinctive smell when your water is getting low, you'll see as you cook more. You will also hear the fat sizzling. Don't overthink it, pork butt is the easiest meat to cook on a WSM. Keep the top vent wide open and regulate the temp with the bottom vents. Don't use too much wood, I use 3 or 4 good sized, unsoaked chunks.
  12. One of the restaurants I worked for had a cannelloni. Filling was ground beef, Italian sausage, spinach and some romano cheese. Sauce was a basic marinara, no bechamel. The pasta was made from a thick crepe batter cooked in saute pans. Worked pretty well. It was one of our best sellers.
  13. 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.
  15. Stuffed with beef and rice, with onions green bell peppers, celery, garlic and seasonings. Sauce is V8.
  16. Working from home today. Good price on pork butt so I fired up the WSM.

    Dinner 2020

    Nothing brings the kid home from the dorms like chicken and noodles.
  18. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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".
  23. 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.

    Dinner 2020

    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.
