    Best Current Price for Thermapen

    What's even more odd is that both the UK and US versions have four little switches inside them. The first switch for the US version changes betwen C* and F*. The first swith in the UK version does nothing, literally - so the hardware is there, but the software is not installed.

    Best Current Price for Thermapen

    This is a great idea, and was JUST about to buy one until I realized that these models appear to only measure in C*. I only know F*, and don't want to deal with conversions each time. I put a call into the seller to confirm this. Really hoping they have models that do both. Well, just to confirm, any Thermapen directly from the UK (as is the case with the link above) will only messure in C*. The US models are the ones that have the ability to switch. Too bad, since they are a great price, but I don't want to bother with converting each time.

    Great tip, I'll try that. Any idea if they still offer a full warranty? EDIT: None! Oh well.

    So the next sale might be as long off as 6 months? I think I'd wait if we were talking a month or so, but I'm not going to wait an incredibly long time to save a few dollars. Also, the consensus is still that the Thermapen is the way to go? Have any competitors caught up?

    Best Current Price for Thermapen

    Been a while since I've stopped in.... So can anyone recommend where to buy a Thermapen? I've debated getting one for too long, and am finally doing it. Unfortunately, it looks like I just missed their "open box" sale. Can anyone tell me how often these occur? I'm not really in a rush, so maybe it's worth waiting. Much appreciated! EDIT: Spelling error in title. Oops.

    Freezing or Storing Turkey Burgers

    Rare turkey burgers?
  8. I seem to remember the directions mentioning that milling any sort seed or grain will likely cloud the canister. Doesn't affect anything besides appearance. Also, I think the main benefit to "cooking" soup in the blender itself is just convenience and not having another pot to clean. I don't think it will get hot enough to properly "cook" the soup, so depending on what you are using you may need to saute it ahead of time anyway. Instead, the blender makes it hot enough for service (which is perfectly fine in many cases). I like to use a corn base for soup and go from there. Liquid is either stock or milk/cream. Many differenet directions to go in - fresh herbs (basil, dill, cilantro, etc), garlic/onion/shallots, bacon or ham (not blended), smoke flavor, seafood, other veggies, certain oils and/or butter, some spic heat, whatever. Simple, quick, delicious.

    Rick Bayless Taco Seasoning

    Your hope may be misplaced. http://adland.tv/com...ss-2003-030-usa Ha! That was great. Overall, the sauce wasn't bad. It won't replace real, traditional seasoning, but it was certainly better than the little packets of dry seasoning. For quick meals, I'll stick with the sauce for now. On a side note, this is the first time I used ground venison for tacos, and it's damn good. It just works really well - now my favorite taco meat.

    Rick Bayless Taco Seasoning

    Anyone try any of these? http://www.fronteraf...-sauces/27.html I needed a quick dinner for tonight, so picked up a package of the ground beef seasoning to use with vension tacos. The ingredient list is relatively impressive. Seems to get decent reviews from what I see, and I would hope that Rick wouldn't put his name on crap. Either way, I'll let you all know how it goes tomorrow.

    Best desserts to order?

    Also, if you want something quick and don't want to bake, Costco sells mini cream puffs and mini eclairs. They are very good. I think they are in the freezer section, so they just need a little time to defrost.

    What part of LI? We might be neighbors, so maybe I can make a suggestion.

    Partial Growler

    I think the beer gods might be upset with me if I cook with this beer - or at least most hop heads will be . Just recaping and drinking tomorrow is plan B, just hoping for something better.

    Partial Growler

    Just bought a 64oz growler. I'm unlikely to finish the entire thing by myself tonight, so does anyone have tips on how to best save the leftovers? How bad will it be if I just recap whats left? I don't really have any smaller glass containers that would work. If anyone is interested, the beer is Nugget Nectar.
