    Superbowl 2021

    I can't find the recipe I used last time, but I think it went something like this. Soy Brown sugar Garlic Ginger Gochujang Sesame oil Last time I made them, I just skewered them and grilled them over charcoal and they were pretty chewy. Shelby at some point mentioned that she puts them in a pressure cooker first then fries. I plan to pressure cook then grill.

    Superbowl 2021

    I've been a KC Chiefs fan since the first time they won the Superbowl. A lot of lean years with a few good ones in between. Pretty cool to have a good team again. Normally, I would fire up the smoker and do a brisket with a bunch of sides. But with the virus, it's just me and my wife this year and there's no way we could eat that in a month. Add to that the fact that she doesn't like football. I think I'm doing apps. Deviled eggs, ABTs, maybe chile con queso. I did Korean grilled chicken gizzards one time that came out pretty good. I may try those again.
  6. My wife was out running errands this afternoon and stopped by Jason's Deli for a 1/2 of a muffuletta. Pretty tasty.
  7. I only tried once. It was a complete disaster. My wife requested a cheesecake made from the fake sugar in the yellow box. Splenda? The recipe called for a lot of it. It looked beautiful coming out of the oven. Nicely risen, slightly browned top. Looked like a really nice cheesecake. No one took more than one bite. It was so bitter, I'm not sure anyone swallowed their first bite. Shivers.
  8. I will never again buy a can of PAM without reading all of the label. It said PAM, I bought it. Then I made late-night chicken wings in the air fryer. I mix half cornstarch and half flour and season with a boat load of cayenne and some Lawry's salt. Arrange in the air fryer and spray with PAM, close it up and shut the lid. 10 seconds into it I'm asking myself where that weird vanilla scent is coming from. PAM baking spray with vanilla, WTF is that? And why does it need vanilla in it? Who doesn't add vanilla into their baked goods? After cooking, the wings were then tossed in a sauce of Frank's, El Yucateco Caribbean and coarsely ground black pepper. With enough El Yucateco, I think I killed the vanilla flavoring.
  9. I had never heard of Duke's until moving to KY about 10 years ago. Seems to be the favorite here. I can't tell much of a difference between Duke's and Hellman's to be honest. I usually get Hellman's because Duke's only seems to come in giant economy size.
  10. I use a little smokie. Pulled pork works well too. Yours look delicious.
  11. I've been using this for about 20 years https://www.smokingmeatforums.com/threads/shakes-honey-brine.49739/ It could get a bit salty with an "enhanced" turkey.
  12. My wife and I celebrated our 35th anniversary on Monday. She requested stuffed chicken breast. I buy a whole chicken and filet the whole breast in one piece. I pound it thin and the stuff with a mixture of cream cheese, crumbled bacon, sauted and chopped spinach, green onions, Worcestershire, Tabasco and a little fresh ground nutmeg. Flour/egg wash/bread crumbs and then pan fry both sides and finish in the oven. Served with smashed new potatoes and asparagus grilled with garlic butter.
  13. My daughter, SIL and 1.5 year old granddaughter had to cancel their trip from Minneapolis due to the virus. Younger daughter will be here, she lives in an off campus apartment here in town, we rarely see her with school, work and practicum. On the menu will be honey brined and pecan smoked turkey. Deviled eggs Sausage dressing Mashed potatoes Slow cooked all day green beans with country ham. Corn Rosemary/chive rolls Gravy Bourbon pecan pie and Dutch apple pie. Seems like a lot for just three of us, but the youngest daughter is demanding dressing so I'm doing the whole shebang. I offered to do steaks or lasagna or something non traditional. I think she'd be happy with just dressing and gravy.
  14. Maybe this is regional. My mom and the nuns at school always referenced starving kids in India.
  15. Mine is a two day process. Day 1 I simmer a whole chicken with a box of Swanson's broth, usually the low sodium one. Remove chicken, let cool and pick the meat. Then return the bones and skin to the stock and simmer for another hour or two. Strain and refrigerate. Next day I pull off the chicken fat and heat the stock. Add onion, carrot and celery along with some Italian seasoning and a lot of freshly ground black pepper. Simmer till tender then add the chicken meat. I salt at this point. I add Reames frozen egg noodles (yeah, I call them dumplings) Cook over low heat for 20 minutes or so. I thicken with a flour and water slurry. Gets my kid home from college.

    Thanks, I'll have to make this. I haven't had one since we moved from Lawrence, KS where we used to go to Runza's.

    Chicken and cheese enchiladas with Cuban black beans.
  18. I quit reading when he dissed The Grateful Dead. Dude obviously has no taste. I had to conclude that he food was indeed good and he should pay. And tip well.
  19. I'm not familiar enough to answer your questions about clams, squid, duck, or bitter melon. But I can make a trip up there to check it out. The meat stew stuff they put over spaghetti is spelled chili. Chile is the sweet/hot fruit of the vine. I've never used chilli
  20. Hey, if Rotus can hate on green bell peppers, I can hate on Cincinnati chili. I stand by my statement. Also famous from Cincinnati is Goetta, which is pretty good. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goetta And Graeter's Ice Cream, which my wife and kids really like. https://www.graeters.com/
  21. I live about an hour South of Cincinnati. We really don't get there all that much. We've been to a couple of museums and the aquarium, but very few restaurants and markets. They are known for Cincinnati chili, terrible stuff. Loaded with cinnamon and served over spaghetti noodles with fistfulls of cheap, orange cheese piled on top. One interesting market is Jungle Jim's. I spent a couple hours in there just wandering around. I did manage to spend a good amount of money while wondering though. https://junglejims.com/ If you need some reconnaissance, let me know.
