    Smoked pork chops.
    Red Wattle from HeritageFoodsUSA.com. Recession Special they called it during the recession.
    Brined in Blonder Brine.
    Rubbed with 3/4 tsp of Memphis Dust
    Smoked at 225* with Maple, then Cherry.
    Glazed with grade B maple, tabasco and soy mix.
    taken off at 145-150*.

    I had made something similar last year, but with less temperature consistency, so they got to 175-180 last time. Wife said then, best chops ever. Last night, wife said these were clearly the best chops ever and that she didn't know chops could be this good.

        Today's lunch. I wanted tacos but I didn't have the spices and didn't want to take the time to mix them from scratch. I did have lots of Cajun seasoning though and decided Cajun tacos are good enough for me.👍

            If I could get you to cook for me I'd never go out to dinner... Great cook!

          Howdy Meathead Maniacs!
          So I've been neglecting posting cooks as of late and I'm fixing that this evening.
          This is just a simple little cook of breaded chicken breasts, a nice green salad, and an avocado salad made by a friend. She thinks I need some care taking seeing as how I'm a bachelor. I don't tell her otherwise. She's been her many times for parties that I've thrown and she still brings me food.

          Here is the Marketing shot:


          Here is the money shot:


          The chicken breasts were most and juicy and the avocado salad was wonderful. Pete, my salt pig that was a gift from a dear friend, approves. He's not too happy with me when I do butts or pork ribs!
          The breading was really simple: I packet of powdered Spicy Ranch Dressing mixed into Panko breadcrumbs that had been salted and peppered. The breasts were soaked for 30 minutes in buttermilk and then dredged in the breadcrumbs. I personally think it needed more salt, but nobody complained.

          That's it and thanks for looking in.

            I'd feel so guilty with Pete watching me while I eat ribs and pulled pork. Kinda like the Chick-fil-A Cows when I eat a burger...

            Looks great! You just reminded me I have pickled watermelon rind put up in the cabinet! Thanks! I had to look up compressed watermelon-that is very interesting.

          A simple but delicious dinner tonight. My work kicked into high gear this week so I needed a quick meal. Eggs with a light coating of coarse grind black pepper, garlic powder and cayenne pepper (all from Penzeys) with an Italian sausage I cooked last night to start seasoning my Grill Grates.

            Looks good! If you really want to kick them up a notch try Adler smoked paprika from Aldersmoked.com. It is expensive and very addicting. I can't live without it. I bought it at Pikes market when in Seattle last year and have not been without it since. One smell and you will be hooked.

              Looks great CeramicChef ! Do I spy a salt grinder on your table? If so, what brand and how do you like it? The ones I have had corrode quickly. I'd love to have o e that really works and lasts.

              richinlbrg - you have sharp eyes. That's an S&P mill set by Oxo. Got it at Bed, Bath, & Beyond. Good price and Oxo quality. Can't be beat! I'd give it 3 thumbs up if I had that many.

            Anyone want some fresh smoked Steelhead? I can go fishing now, work for day is over. ​

              Dinner last night was burgers. First time I have made them sous vide. I didn't pre-season them at all and they were in the bath at 130F for about 2.5 hours, then seared with a torch. They came out great. Served on homemade whole wheat buns with sesame seeds, lettuce, pickles and homemade thousand island dressing.

                Nice...👍 I like your WW buns! I've been making up a dozen Steakhouse Steakburger patties at a time and putting them in SV bags and putting them In the freezer. That way I can take one out and drop it in the hot tub right out of the freezer. Then I sear in my cast iron skillet. Burgers on demand!
