    Ted Reader's In and Out Burger with special sauce and grilled sweet tater fries. Lettuce, red onion, Cherokee tomato. Slapped a butt on the grill after cooking the burgers-going to make pulled pork chili tonight

      Jerod I will get my dictionary out later. As to the hinge, I love it. I had pretty good leaks before I installed it so I put a gasket on before I installed the hinge. No leaks with the hinge.

    First home-cooked meal after two weeks on the road and what do I make? Yep. Tri-tip!

    Cooked for 8 hours SV at 128F then seared with a torch (love my Sansaire Searing Kit!). This was dry-brined for 2 hours with salt, a bit of pepper and dill seeds and vacuum packed. Then into the bath.

    Was as tender as prime rib but much tastier!

      Just curious if you have an embroidered tri-tip on all your clothing? Beef flavor out the ying yang is all I got to say about the "tip." And 100 other good things.....

    Pulled beef pizza. Ok I cheated a little. This is delivery 'cheese lover's 5 cheese' pizza with only green peppers. But I added my leftover pulled beef, so I sorta cooked it, right?

    So good it should be illegal.

    Huskee, I've never used ash, but we do have a few "trash" trees I've got to cut soon (too close to the house). SO I don't have to do any work (smile), can you tell me what it's like? What flavor? Seems pretty mild. Should I save some chunks?

    Harry Ash has become my favorite for ribs, and I've used lots of kinds of wood. Hard to compare it though...doesn't have the sweet incense smell of most fruit woods, but don' let that fool you. Mild, yes. The closest that I can realistically compare it to is maple. It burns hot if you were to burn full sticks/logs. I use chunks on the kettle with SnS too.

    Definitely save all you can! Miter saw them down to chunk size. "Ash" just doesn't have the romance of apple, cherry, hickory, etc, but it's wonderful.

      Doing some chainsaw work on downed pines tomorrow. I already tied a red "cut this" ribbon on a 6" diameter ash. That should hold me for the rest of the Summer. (smile)

    Sous chef Cody at his post while I reheat and sear off a couple of filets mignon I sous vided last week. 129x3, then 45 seconds a side over the sear station at pin the dome beyond 650. Grill grates or a baking steel might be in my future for this application. Dusted with SPG, then mine was topped with a bechamel variation I made with cheddar and worchester. Corn was the real sweet corn. Must be in season now, because this was like candy, with a Spanish olive oil and omnivore salt.

    The bechamel variation increased the interest I had for the beef, as filet is not my thing. Just the cure, a funky sauce.

      FLBuckeye Since you have a SnS, try ABCbarbecue.com's pulled beef recipe. The short story is use a chuck roast and treat it exactly as you would a pork butt (with only minor variances), just with beef seasonings.

      Ordered a Blue's Hog sampler pack. Included Original, Tenessee Red, and a dry rub. This sauce tastes like cane syrup, with sugar added. I can also taste ground mace, cumin or chili powder, and the red pepper flakes, sorta. This is sickeningly sweet. A child would refuse to eat this. Tenessee Red, thinner and spicier, but still like candy syrup. You could use this as a candy apple glaze. The rub is paprika based, but I didn't use it. Memphis Dust is my preference on ribs. I always forget to snap photos of my finished ribs, but trust that they were awesome! Can't wait to cook again next weekend!

      Wife wanted to do grilled chicken salad. 3 pieces of chicken breast.. all 3 of significantly different sizes.. and the biggest one was still froze in the middle. I think she is intentionally trying to test my grilling talent. Sorry .. no pics

          Lone Star Grillz 24 X 48 Offset

        Here is a throwback to last week in Alaska. There is nothing better than fresh from the river Sockeye Salmon. I don't know what I liked better, the fight or the filet.......Not a bad problem to have.

          GREAT looking catch and meal!
          Where in Alaska, Spinaker ? I've done some fishing in the Wrangle Narrows area (inland waterway - extreme southeast). What are the catch limits this year?

          Spinaker The old fashioned way. Fried in leaf lard. Then tossed in garlic butter and finished with real Parmesan Reggiano cheese.

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

      the good one grill
      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.

      Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

      Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
      The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!
