    Recipe Box Software

    richinlbrg, over on "Your BBQ Resolution" thread

    http://pitmaster.amazingribs.com/for...bbq-resolution

    mentioned "Get my recipes together and organized properly (and if anyone knows of an electronic recipe box, I'd like to know)". I have a similar problem.

    I don't want to manually enter everything into a new program. I am way to lazy and have to many other projects I am into to take that much time to do it. Also it would bore me to tears and take away from my time on the pit and cooking.

    I would like to be able to scan some old family and friends hand written recipes as a pic and make it legible so I can keep it in a common place, like one large electronic Cookbook.

    If anyone has a recipe book/box software that they are happy with please share so others including myself and richinlbrg and get better organized.

    • We have two weber kettle grills (one LARGE and one small/average), the SnS and the Weber Smokey Mountain 18" smoker. We use both natural lump charcoal and KNB for smoking and measure our temps with a Maverick 733, thermopen and MK4. Favorite beer depends on what is cooking (alt answer is yes).

      I spent about 20 min Googling different options on this and noticed a lot out there for the Apple Ipad. I would really like to have the main program on my PC and be able to send it to my Ipad or Android device if I need to. I had only one program that talked about taking a pic with the Ipad and moving it into a cobbled together cooking notebook on another site. Bah, I will keep looking.

      I have a ton of old family and my own hand written recipes to file and store.

        We have a lot of recipes, too. A year or so ago, I did a search for iPad, which we use a lot when cooking. Sounds like a lot more may have come around. I'll check them out. I'm also wondering if using OCR software may have a use here. I'll join your search a bit later in the day.

          I've done some OCR software but it is really bad at recipes, so many abbreviations and cursive etc. A scanner is the only thing I can recommend, taking pictures usually causes more problems.

            I have a scanner john but, it would be great to find a program that has the scanner written in so the import would be minimal.

              I use a Word document template that I set up. A bit of work but I usually just copy / paste the main info. I also add the date and the hyperlink so I can refer back to it for updates. I have a 3" binder divided into 8 sections for the recipes with page protectors for the recipes. Additionally, I email the docs to my kindle paperwhite for when I camp and don't want to lug the big binder with me. A bit of work but I can take a recipe and have it in a Word doc pretty quick.

              I remember seeing a scanner thing for your receipts being advertised on TV. Pretty sure this is it: http://www.neat.com/

              FLB, I was going to get the binder and page protectors this weekend, but then re-thought about software.

                For some, Evernote might work. Getting Started with Evernote for Mac is here and you can review Evernote for other platforms from this page. They also have Evernote for iOS, Windows, Android, Web, and more. It's free unless you need the premium features. I've just started using it and it syncs between my Mac, iPhone and iPad. Notebooks can contain multiple notes. Their "Create and Edit a Note" section says:

                An Evernote note can capture just about anything, including text, images, files, audio, Web Clips and more. All notes are searchable, making them easy to find when you need them. Evernote even searches for typed and handwritten text inside attached images.

                Hope this is helpful.

                I use Evernote for recipes and my cooking logs (among other things like shopping lists). Each of these is a "notebook," otherwise known as a folder. On my mac version, in an internet browser, there's an option to select a portion of a screen (or the whole screen) and it basically takes a snapshot of it - I use this for Internet recipes like on AR. It syncs automatically to the app on my iPad and iPhone. With those, you can take a photo from within the app and insert it into a new or existing document.

                        I use Evernote for this. I have an Evernote Stacked Notebook for Recipes. Within the stack are notebooks for Meats, Sauces, Component Ingredients, Vegetables - some others I can't remember right now. You can use scanned images, type stuff in, or copy and paste text from web-sites or your own word or word perfect documents. You can add or take photos and even now hand-write in your phone or table screen. It is awesome. And, as fuzzydaddy says, it is completely cross-platform integrated.

                      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.

                      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!

                      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.

At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                      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'.
