      Rice, rice and more rice for me.

      Did you cook the rice separately on the grill and then add it or did you cook it the "normal" way?

      The normal way. Just added more stock as needed.

    Tots w/cheese. Too lazy to cook a big meal.

      Sometimes I prefer the simple pleasures in life. I love the jalapeno cheese corn dogs when I can find them.

      Corn dogs are awesome, the mega greasy and crispy freshly deep fried ones at carnivals are my favourites.

    ^Steak and Taters on the Grill with burnt offering, cooked heart shaped for our silver anniversary ^

    I dry-brined the ribeyes for about 6 hours with cherry smoked salt. I laid a single layer of Stubbs briquettes on the grate and then lit a chimney that was 1/3 leftover lump and 2/3 Stubbs. I followed the POTATOES ARE BEST ON THE GRILL recipe on page 358 of MEATHEAD. So I cut them in half and applied kosher salt and MMD in accordance with the directions. Just before I put the taters on the grill I noticed the marks I had made to mark bottom vent positions were way off. No wonder my fire management has been challenged. So I reset them to what was actually 3/4 BV and 1/2 TV and the potatoes went on at 4:31 pm. Just before the steaks went on I pressed in some Spices Inc. Pennsylvania Pepper (which is great btw) and put the steaks on the grill when the taters hit about 140. That ended up being way early. Next time I will wait until they hit 180. The potatoes hit 180 and I decided I had better stick a Thermopen in the beef. Sinfully neglected, the steaks' internal temperature was higher than I wanted I had to decide to leave them on and sear the potatoes early or pull them off and the reheat them later. I chose the former. So I drenched the potatoes in melted Kerry's Gold butter and set them cut side down over the SNS. By the time I laid the last one down (thank goodness for welding gloves!) it was time to flip the first potato. The crisped up almost instantly over the high heat. The steaks ended up hitting 155 on the indirect side before they were very briefly seared. They were still tender but far from my desired medium rare and lost some flavor. Luckily my wife likes her steaks well done so all was not lost. I finished my steak with a touch of herbed sea salt that we keep on the table (I am hunting for a really cool salt pig if you see one holler at me please). The taters were tender but firm. College boy decided the best part of the meal was the blackened portions of the taters, I did not necessarily disagree.

      Tried something new tonight. Not that great.

      Got 2 mongo strips. Brined one in our usual Montreal seasoning. On the other, I tried a new rub a friend gave me, an Old Fashion Coffe Rub for beef. Brined them for a few days, then sat them in sealed bags and gave them a 6 hr water bath @130*F, then over the SnS on warp speed for a nice sear.

      My goal was to try to make the strips almost as tender as a filet. The water bath rendered out some juices, which knocked off some of the rubs. The strips came out VERY tender, but not so tasty. - a bit bland. The meat was not dry, but it was not juicy, either. Unless I did something wrong, likely the last time I'll try this. Did I let them in the bath too long?

      Huskee , the coffe rub is not for me on steaks. Just not bold enough for my taste. I'll go back to Montreal on steaks.

      Not a fail, but won't do it again, either.

        I'm m not an expert on sous vide, but I'm a minimalist going into the bag. I season as I finish it in the pan or, on the plate if finished on the grill.

          Also, if it's lean, like grass fed, sometimes you get a bit of powdery feel to the meat. If I have a lean cut, I add a pat of butter to the bag.

          I'm gonna roll back the < 6 hour recommendation. I talked to some folks, and some think 6 is the exact sweet spot. I've never gone to 6 with a tender cut, but that might work okay. Keep it simple in the bag, and do not discard the bag juices, as that's your liquid fond (w/ albumin... gross protein).

        Had to have me some DUCK!

          Beautiful! Dang, I'm hungry again.

        My first chuckie. Served on ciabatta with havarti and lillie Q hot and smoky, plus corn on the cob and Ace Joker hard cider.

        I see why people go on about chuck. I'm a believer.

          Chuck is really really good.

        I've got a couple thick Ribeyes going on the Weber kettle: Montreal steak seasoning, Reverse sear with a stick of pecan.

        Monday is Kathryn's Bacon Covered Smoked Meatloaf Night

        I have been waiting to try out this recipe from our fellow Pitmaster, Kathryn fzxdoc for a while. I prepped the meat weeks ago and stuck it in the freezer. It is a combination of ground beef, ground pork, and ground bison. It was and is F A N T A S T I C!!! This is by far the best meatloaf I have ever tasted. You can taste that there is more than one meat in it but you cannot put your finger on what it is specifically. These three beasts combine to create a wonderful, meaty flavor. I am forever in your debt, Kathryn! You and the other Pitmasters on this site keep helping me become a better cook.

        I made the meatloaf according to Kathryn's directions with the help of my lovely bride, who added ingredients when my hands were otherwise sunk into ground meat, mixing it by hand. We made a few adjustments as we did not have everything in the pantry that I thought we did. I switched S&G Rub for marjoram, added 3 extra eggs and skipped the milk, and only used 1.5 cups of bread crumbs. Additionally I used homemade thick cut bacon and just put a couple of pieces on each loaf.
        I put the meat loaves into the freezer to set and went out and started a chimney full of KBB. While that was getting going I prepped the squash. I cut it into big chunks and laid them uncovered in a foil boat. I added 3 TBS herbed butter and 1 TBS rendered duck fat (yum). Then I tossed on some Simon & Garfunkel Rub and sprinkled on some Cherry Smoked Sea Salt from SpicesInc.com.
        45 minutes later, having already emptied the chimney into the SlowNSear, I put two of the loaves on the grill. I put the third into the refrigerator. Time to hang out on the lanai with Leah.
        Here is the play by play on the cooking portion.

        4:43 356

          I'm so happy that smoked meatloaf recipe turned out well for you, Marty martybartram . We like the meaty flavor that bison brings to the party, too.

          That dinner plate photo looks great--I bet the food didn't last long after the photo was snapped!
