    Rib Eyes Last Night. Had no ambition for low and slow but wanted smoky flavored meat. Heartfelt thanks to Meathead for his sage wisdom and teaching us about the Reverse Sear. Haven't had to offer up any more prime cut burnt offerings to the gods of the grill since learning this technique!!!

      I know that's right, reverse sear has saved my steak inconsistencies

      They say the first thing to go is your memory.... I can't remember what the 2nd thing was.😡

      I think it might be my Somtimers Disease kicking in again.🤔

    Dinner last night was salmon filets. My wife likes hers plain, so I made hers sous vide to medium rare. Mine (pictured) was smoked to medium rare and glazed with honey-mustard-port sauce. Served with steamed and buttered Brussels Sprouts.

          KBQ is very comfortable at the top position.

        Ribeye, cooked SV to 122F then seared with a torch and seasoned with Montreal Rub. Served with salad and white corn (which wasn't that good). Sorry I started eating before I remembered to snap a pic.

          Well said Martybartram...I wouldn't remember my camera if my steak looked that good either :-)

        Grilled spaghetti!

        The patties are 1 pound ground sirloin (90% lean) and 1 pound Bob Evans spicy sausage mixed together:

        The patties then went into the cast iron wok and were broken up into small chunks.

        The sauce was made in advance and added to the wok after the patties were all broken up.

        The spaghetti was cooked al dente and after it was put into a colander and the water was shaken out I drizzled on some olive oil and tossed the noodles to coat them. This prevented the noodles from clumping and it also adds a hint of nuttiness to the final dish. The noodles were added to the wok after the sauce cooked for about 5 minutes and were mixed around until they were coated with the sauce.

        When it was plated a grated on a little parmesano reggiano and sprinkled on some chopped basil from my youngest son's plant.

        All 4 of us were very satisfied with the dish and after texting a couple of pics to my brother he demanded I make this over the 4th. I had to break it to him that I'll be smoking a 17 pound prime packer over the 4th. He wasn't happy about it - he LOVES spaghetti.

          That's a clever way to conserve charcoal. Oh, and the ribs (both types) look good as well.

          Thank you!! was delicious. 0 leftovers is the greatest compliment of all

        Ribs two ways again: LMR and char siu. Served with corn (this ear was better than last night's ear) and salad. In the latest video from Meathead (with ChefSteps) he was talking about how the meat should pull clean from the bone, but not fall off. So I had to post a picture of the bone. He would have been proud!

          Char Siu is a great marinade, do you smoke your CS ribs? I prefer them with no smoke.

          Picture perfect as always Guest

          Nice crusts on those patties.👍 they look deep fried kind of because the edges are as crusty as the top & bottom. How did you do that?

          Breadhead dunked them in hot oil for maybe about 30 seconds

        Beef back ribs. Little shaky. Hot bone conducting heat through the upper torso to the camera hand. Sticking to that story.

          This bunch didn't have much of a smoke ring, but some of the others had a GREAT smoke ring. Overall, they were good.

          Apple wood and pork go together like peas and carrots, or so a wise man once said.

        The Cook: The Satisfy Samuel Chicken Wing Challenge DATE: June 11 June, 2016
        PREPARATION & STEPS TAKEN: 24 wings and 12 drummies. Split the wings and sprinkled a heavy dose of Habanero Death Dust on half and Meathead's Memphis Dust on the other half. Sprinkled a heavy dose of Habanero Death Dust on the drummies. Refrigerate for 24 hours. Marinate the MMD wings for two hours in a combination of Moore's Teriyaki Marinade, Hoisin Sauce, and Soy Sauce. Chicken will go on the grill in batches. All wings go in the oven for 2 hours at 220. At the 60 minute mark, start charcoal. At the 90 minute mark put the drummies on the indirect side. Sear at 30 minutes mark.
        TARGET TEMPERATURE: 325ish FUEL & SMOKE: Cowboy Lump Charcoal and lots of hickory
        Time Grate Temperature Meat Temperature Actions
        5:15 pm 330 TV .5 BV .75
        5:42 300 Seared drummies, pulled them off and added some coal for the next two batches and added hickory
        6:22 302 Put the Teriyaki Hoisin wings on
        6:40 322 Flipped and basted w/sauce
        6:51 334 Pulled no sear required. Add HDD wings and basted them with Teriyaki Hoisin Sauce.
        7:12 300 Flipped and basted heavily with DC Mumbo sauce.
        7:20 320 Painted bottom of dish with DC Mumbo sauce. Pulled off the grill.
        Finishing & Serving: Celery & Bleu Cheese
        Finished Product: MMD wings were great (again) the sauce does not overpower the MMD. The MMD still comes through. The HDD were H O T! But full of flavor. These are not for the timid and were close to too hot for me. I could only eat 5.
        Two days ago college boy had BWW's hottest wings. He said they were good. He just got in (10:30pm) from a week at the beach so I am waiting for his review.
        Next Time: Cut HDD in half for me.

          They were even better today, we opted to save the rest for Monday's lunch and do ribeyes and taters tonight. Sam said, 'they were good, better than last time."

      The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


      The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

      Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

      Amazingribs.com temperature magnet
      Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

      The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy


      The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

      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.
