      Not only a tour de force on the grill, but an A+ for the level of though/effort invested in staging the scenes. Bravo!

    Wait, that doesn't look like a pbc...

    Very nice piece of meat.

    Yesterday was great. We had light snow showers all day, temps around 32F. The kids came over in the morning and we did christmas presents and a big brunch of sausage, scrambled eggs, bacon, and aebelskivers.

    Then clean up, get tables set, and start cooking for christmas dinner. That group is Stacy, me, our 3 kids (plus two significant others), Stacy’s brothers, their wives, and 4 kids (plus two wives and our first great nephew), and Grandpa (who is 87 and going strong). If you add that up, it’s a lot of people!

    10 lb roast, 5 lb ham, and all the fixings did the trick, though.

    And this morning it’s a winter wonderland, with at least 6 more inches of snow due today.

    So everyone’s Christmas dinners look AMAZING!!! I had some prime NY Strips I was going to fix but I made the mistake of asking the kids what they wanted for our Christmas meal……..they decided that Chinese Lo Mein sounded really good….. wait what???
    So yea you guessed it, we had Lo Mein using the prime strip steaks….😂😂😂.
    But they also still wanted Green Bean Casserole and Sweet Potatoes…..That was one heck of a combination but turned out pretty tasty!

      We have made the "Ram-don" japaguri from the film Parasite a couple of times using prime strip steaks. It's really delicious and easy. Nice spread, kids sound like they know what they want!

    So many great Christmas shots from you all. We had one of those Christmas holidays when part of the family was gone, part (my son) split time with a girlfriend and my wife running around with her friend, that it was at best a pot luck dinner. I did cook a variety of foods but was so exhausted by the end of it (you guessed it no help!!) that these are the only shots I had time for before I gave out !!

    Anyway, rack of lamb smoked with apple wood on a bed of polenta and red wine reduction. Also did a really good cauliflower gratin which turned out delicious. Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas with friends and family. I somewhat envy the shots of the snowy north, it was 83*F here yesterday !!! Oh well made for a good day to barbecue !!

      Love the plating! That looks so good! Is the third piece of lamb without a bone or can we just not see it? Love the use of vertical space with the way the chops are laid out.

    One of my favorite uses of Carne Adovada is Huevos Rancheros, and this particularly dish today was on point. Fried potatoes in ghee, over easy eggs, a sprinkle of cheddar cheese on Carne Adovada all over two crisped corn tortillas.

      It’s a turketta, which is a good size and everyone gets some crispy skin.

      Also lumpia and pancit.

      The bread is my 2 yr old sourdough starter filled with cranberries also.

    Did some experimenting today, and smoked up some pork short ribs from Porter Road. Didn't really know what to expect, not a lot of info out there on this cut. They finished faster than I'd expected (just under five hours), so I had to hold them in the FC until everything else could be made ready, a little over three hours. They were excellent, but I can tell that they'd have been absolutely outrageous if I could have served them 15 minutes out of the smoker...

    Dry brined overnight with coarse kosher, Memphis Dust about 30 min before going in. Fortunately the two larger pieces could take T probes.

    They were done a bit before 2:30 (!), so I wrapped em up, in the FC until the sides were ready. Also baked the taters in the smoker until IT of about 210F, but they were still a little crunchy. Good food and good data

      Those look delicious! And, they're not rib roast! Yeah.

    I did not cook for Christmas, we chose snack food, but it’s hard to not cook on a Sunday. Chuck roast slow roasted in a dutch oven with carmalized onions, half a bottle of Bordeaux, seasonings. Pan roasted potatoes in the oven, then finished in a garlic butter broil, and topped with green onion and fresh shaved Asiago. So good! #TheseTwoHands Fairchild Kitchen

      barelfly they were oven roasted, I just decided I could pre heat a pan with a bit of oil and put it into the oven. I did not have enough to warrant a large sheet pan.

    So while ago, someone linked the YouTube video of Chud's BBQ doing a very long sous vide "rest" on a brisket that was taken all the way to done. This differs from the typical QVQ in a couple of ways - you take the brisket all the way to done, then SV 'reset' it at 165F and serve. It's basically QSV, I suppose.

    I was curious but it's just me so I didnt want to do a brisket and bought a nicely marbled 3lb chuck roast. I didnt get a pic of it before smoking but... it's a chuck roast with salt and pepper (equal parts S&P, nothing else).

    Here it is, mid-cook. At this point it was at 140F and the kettle was chugging along at about 240F.

    I chilled it and stuffed it in the fridge since I was doing this last Monday. Today I pulled it out and tossed it in a 165F bath for about 6 hours. Pulled it out and sliced it, giving me this:

      Troutman - I was surprised how well the bark held up. It's obviously because it didnt throw much purge and therefore didnt have liquid to soften it, but this was pretty much indistinguishable from regular smoked chuck.

    I didn’t want to get banned for not posting some type of a rib-eye cook this weekend, so I decided to do one of my favorites, a blackened ribeye. I don’t know what happened, but this turned out to be one of my best ever ribeye cooks. Man, it turned out really good. I actually licked the plate clean of all the juices when I was done. No need for putting it in the dishwasher. I stood over the sink and licked it like a Cro-Magnon cave man. On another note, I’m really liking that little butane burner I bought a few months ago. It starts on the first click every time, and will get hot as hell. Don’t have to worry about smells and splatters in the kitchen. I just put it on a TV tray in the garage.
