    I did not get to the Chicago style thin crust like I wanted to tonight. Did French bread pizza instead. And, no, it’s not stouffers. While I did pay homage to the triangle pepperoni. My deli only had large format pepps.

    Supper last night was two New York strips from Porter Road, and I did some bacon fried rice in the wok. Reverse seared the New York strips. When I was starting out learning how to do a steak around here, Panhead John told me that he reverse seared steaks no matter how thick they were. Many cooks later and I 100% agree with this -- the smoke flavor improves pretty much any steak to me

      Strips!

    My second batch of kombucha. Cherry on the left and cranberry on the right. The plastic bottles are carbonation testers, when they are hard to press, the carbonation is done and it is time to put all of them into the fridge. I need to work on my bottle filling technique, the full ones should all be up to the bails for the lids. Made quite a mess with the first pour of the cherry but learned my lessons and no mess at all with the cranberry. 👌

      pkadare I am about to bottle my first batch. Curious, how long did your secondary fermentation take for batch 1? I’m hoping for two batch brews and then moving to a larger vessel for continuous brewing.

      jhapka - my first F2 took about 6 days but we keep the house cool in the winter up here.

    Forgot to post this the other day. The WSCG was getting tired of only cooking steaks, so let it smoke a chuckie. Lunch the next day was a bbq beef melt. The Mac and cheese was STCG’s recipe for the instant pot he did a couple weeks ago with Velveeta and fresh parmesan instead of cheeses my daughter would whine about.

      Jeeze that looks good

    Last night's dinner became today's brunch instead. I was really tired when I got home from work last night, so, instead of cooking as planned, I ate some Fritos and Frito bean dip with a beer, kicked back with a book and glass of wine, and went to bed soon after.

    This morning I decided to go ahead with the cook: Townsend's Breaded Pork Chops recipe from 1767

    https://youtu.be/WMjY0HVuSDw

    The gravy was made from Townsend's Cullis Recipe from 1788 - basically a broth on steroids - that I made several days ago (despite the video title it is not any harder than making a regular stock). I used venison stock to make the cullis:

    In addition to the herbs, I used Townsend's Kitchen Pepper recipe from 1777 to season the pork chops. I made this last year and it is most similar to, but different from, TexJoy Steak Seasoning - it subs really well for TexJoy and is excellent on pork: https://youtu.be/ZEu6z3L34v8


    This was really, really good. The gravy is similar to a Steak Diane sauce. Apparently people in the 1700s liked tart things with vinegar or lemon. Next time I make the cullis I will leave the lemon out so it will work better with modern cooking. It would be an excellent seasoned stock for use in all kinds of recipes.

      I have long been interested in Thomas Jefferson's cookbook and you've inspired me to drop it in the Amazon account, thanks! https://www.amazon.com/Thomas-Jeffer.../dp/0971988560

      CaptainMike Damn you! I have several reprinted old cookbooks thanks to Tasting History's and Townsend's youtube channels. I haven't seen Jefferson's cookbook before and now I've ordered it thanks to you. Like I need another cookbook.

          Nice pasta!

        Haven’t posted a cook in quite a while, mainly because I forget to take pictures, and some of our members would come down hard on me. You know who you are FireMan, HawkerXP, etc. Anyway, sometimes simple is really good. Couple of thick pork chops plus a little Meat Church Holy Cow, a baked potato, roasted cauliflower, and some marinated veggies. Excellent. And you’ll never guess what’s on the baked potato—Laughing Cow. Saves a bunch of fat and calories rather than cheese and/or sour cream. Also had a splash of Woodford Reserve Double Oaked thanks to glitchy, although I’m pretty sure it’s a different bottle from my Christmas jug. Anyway, here ‘tis.

          Well, when you take photos, you sure do them up right. Nice job! Great-looking dinner. All that spice sure makes those chops look pretty.

        Made some Huli Huli Chicken tonight on my Weber. Cheers to early spring BBQ!

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

        Compact Powerful Sear Machine For Your Next Tailgater


        Char-Broil’s Grill2Go x200 is a super-portable, fun little sizzler made of heavy, rust-proof cast aluminum. The lid snaps shut. Grab the handle and you’re off to the party! Char-Broil’s TRU-Infrared design produces searing heat while reducing fuel consumption. A 16 ounce LP gas canister is enough to keep you flipping burgers for hours.

        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker


        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.

        GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The InfraredZone


        GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, kill hotspots, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke.
