    I think it is cool he rents an apartment across the street from his two restaurants. In one of his episodes, he is making a NY-style pizza and the pizza is too big for his oven in the apartment, so he gets in the elevator, goes downstairs, walks across the street and uses the oven at Not Not Tacos. The looks from the customers is pretty funny in places.

    I already used EVOO, but your response did remind me he got me buying Avocado oil now too 🤪 It was the super expensive griddle I was talking about. It just looks so handy the way he uses it (in almost always perfect weather).

    One of his restaurants is a taco joint which might explain his frequent use.

    I know it is really EVOO. I don’t know what EVO stands for here though!

    That was pretty cool. I saw the Pastor video pop up on my feed earlier today, but had no idea he was using a PBC. I think I will do this one soon. I may even make those corn tortillas!

    I've really warmed up to him lately. He likes really bold flavors, especially Asian and Mexican. He is all about maximum flavor with minimum effort. He has a thing for tacos. All of his recipes I've done have turned out great. In fact, I am absolutely in love with his carne asada marinade. It is perfect.

    His son Max does all of the videography and editing (I believe) and around 2017 you can start to see the production quality of the videos just skyrocket. Occasionally you'll see some of the cameras they use in the shots. My favorite is the DSLR that sits on a robot mount that crawls across the table. (It is the one that is used to get the pan shots of the cutting board.)

    (For those with a PBC....the hanger you want is the Oklahoma Joe one. It stands upright on its own, unlike the PBC turkey one.)

    Michael_in_TX I have to admit I didn’t buy Sam’s but a Mercer. I thought it was a gimmick and figured I wouldn’t use it much so didn’t want to pay his price. It’s the first knife I grab for, especially on veggies.

    And he ain’t afraid to try something non-typical just to see if it works. I know others do too, but not on camera.
