    I've been dreaming of a smoked recipe incorporating Asian flavors. This is phase 1, it took to long so phase 2 will be tomorrow.

    I made a paste of Adobo, Fennel, Garlic, Ginger, Soy Sauce, Tumeric, Pepper Flake, and Nandos peri peri hot sauce. Rubbed and lest rest 24 hours.

    Smoked for 22 hours!

    It's potent bark, but once shredded it met my needs. Wife can still use some Eastern NC sauce tonight, and its a perfect base for my experiment tomorrow.

    Only hint for tomorrow is I'm going to attempt to meet last years New Years resolution.

    Also, way to go for my MAK... 22 hour cook, still have about 2lbs of pellets in the hopper. It was a blend of PitBoss and Lumberjack fruitwoods, and super windy for the last 24 hours. I did have a fire issue about 12 hours into the cook due to the ash, but I fixed it quick and kept going.

      I'm happy with this as pulled pork, but one thing I should have done with the paste crust is pull it all off separate from the pork and chop it up. A larger piece will DESTROY anyone who doesn't like spice. Blended in it's perfect flavor. I might do a more traditional rub as a paste in the future, it worked really well and didn't block smoke penetration or actual meat bark formation too much.

      You might want to give Steve Raichlen's Korean Pulled Pork recipe a try some day. It's delicious.
      Smoked pork shoulder with the sweet, spicy, and fiery flavors of Korean barbecue. Sweet, salty, spicy, fiery, with those Asian umami flavors.


      Your paste concoction sounds pretty tasty too, and the PP looks great.

    This was so good, I wish I had had time to take better pictures, but it goes together fast! I give you shrimp tacos!

    Wild Texas Gulf Coast Shrimp, seasoned in fajita seasoning, cooked in cast iron. Placed in corn tortillas and topped with shredded cabbage, avocado, and pico....and doused with a little fresh lime juice.

    This is so fresh: the sweetness of the shrimp, the spice of the seasoning, the crunch of the cabbage, the creaminess of the avocado, and the citrus of the lime! Yum!

    Here is everything all plated up. (I need to figure out the white balance on my iPhone. The light directly above is a daylight bulb and those tomatoes should be vibrant red.)

    As you can't see the shrimp very well with everything piled atop it, here is a close up of the shrimp on their way to the fourth taco. (It's healthy! Four tacos is just fine!)

      Attjack and SheilaAnn , I'd love to hear your comments on this: I stopped buying the Ajishima furikake blend I'd been using because I noticed they began printing a warning about lead in the contents, due, I'm presuming, from the seaweed? That same brand used to be made in Japan and now it's made in China. I wondered if the sourcing of the seaweed had something to do with the warning label?

      fzxdoc who knew? That is the brand that I have right now. And I am embarrassed to say, I never noticed the warning nor the "refrigerate after opening" neither. That said, glazed right over the expiry date, too. I trashed it. I will have to look closer when I go get more.

      fzxdoc SheilaAnn these ones (I added a picture to my post) don't say they contain lead or need to be refrigerated.

    Veggie stir fry tonight. Onion, mushrooms peppers, broccoli, and baby bok choy. I have finally made something that my son turned his nose up at….asked where the meat was, ha! He had leftover stroganoff instead.

    And since yesterday was Twosday, 2/22/22, hell yes I made tacos. Two of 'em. CrowdCow 80/20 ground beef simmered in the sauce I've eyeballed my whole life: Salt, pepper, garlic powder, oregano, cumin, chile powder, taco sauce, dash of HFCS-free ketchup, and some Santa Fe Ole red chile sauce. Lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, lite sour cream. Cosmically delicious.

      This morning I single handedly made a bowl of Cheerios. To further complicate this mind blowing feat, I added banana slices.

        I am impressed that you knew to cut against the grain to get more tender slices! You had to have learned that here. Now, I have printed out your gumbo recipe expecting it to be as wise and good.

      Instead of tacos last night, the kid requested shepherds pie for dinner. 🤷‍♀️ So I went along with it except I still had to make a quick margarita for me.

        sticks to your bones!

      Finally got baking off my to do list... Though maybe I need to learn Vietnamese.

      I was super worried my dough didn't look like the scratch made videos I watched for Bao. But I wanted to try this pre-mix stuff.

      Stuffed these with pulled pork from yesterday, and soy sauce, with finely chopped pickled ginger.

      I followed the instructions as best I could, baked at 350 for 24 minutes with an egg wash.

      They aren't dry by any means, the light fluffy and sweet of the bao complements to salty pork. If I make them again I will either reduce some chicken stock to mix in with the meat or make a sauce for the side.

        I *think* the instructions are telling you to steam the bao for 10 minutes and then get rid of the water and cover and cook for another 10 minutes. That seems more in line with a bao bun texture than straight up baking them.

        mnavarre I had intended to bake them on my smoker regardless. It was the oil that threw me off and the overall look of the dough when I got to the resting period. But then I found a Vietnamese Home Shopping Network type video, it wasn't translated but I watched it and their dough looked like mine. I'm really happy with the baked dough result, just need to work on my wrapping skills.

        Dr. Pepper this was dry brined overnight, then went into 145 degrees hot tub time machine for 12 hours. Finished in a cast iron Skillet.
        Seasoned simply with the salt and a touch of chipotle powder.

      Lots of orange here….. broiled salmon, roasted sweet potatoes, sautéed spinach.

        I hoped to sear some scallops for my wife on her birthday. All I could find were wet scallops- though I could have driven another 40 minutes to get the better 'dry' kind. Note to self; Told you "never to buy wet scallops again." Self to note; You did tell me "never to buy wet scallops again."
        Anyhow, one website said to soak the wet scallops in water with lemon and salt. I did that. Then I dried them in paper towels and let them dry in the fridge for almost seven hours. Excited, I heated some butter and oil in a pan. As soon as the scallops hit the heat, spit, spattle and fssss, all their water released. No sear! No problem, I dropped a 1/3 cup of bourbon in the pan and lit a match. Then finished the sauce with some shallots, fresh squeezed OJ, and honey and served everything over cheesy grits.
