    Mr. Bones here ya go, friend. Please know that while I am very methodical, I wing it more times than not. I am more than happy to share any recipes, procedures, etc. 👍🏼

    This is the original sauce recipe. I subbed sherry vinegar for white vinegar. I subbed sweet chili sauce for sriracha (for fear of being too spicy). I omitted the sugar because of the sweet chili. The ginger ended up being about the size of a large jelly bean.

    • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
    • 1/4 cup soy sauce
    • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon sriracha (optional)
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 cloves fresh garlic, grated
    • a small piece of fresh ginger, grated

    Sauce: stir all this together and set aside.

    Chicken: b/s leg-thigh meat (about 1#) dredged with cornstarch and salt and pepper. I eyeballed everything here. And it’s not as heavy as a fully “crusted” piece of chicken like you get at fast food Chinese places.

    Bringing it together: Hot pan, peanut oil (or mild oil); sauté chicken until just about done. Do it in batches if needed. Deglaze with a splash of wine (I had a Chardonnay on hand). Add the red bell and cashews. Sauté a little more. I like to keep the bell pepper crisp. Add the chicken and sauce back to pan and simmer for a few more minutes to heat through. The cornstarch really makes a nice sauce. Garnish with scallions. Serve over steamed rice.

    Egg rolls: my shop makes a “south East Asian” sausage with pork, Thai bird chili’s, lemongrass and garlic. I used it with glass noodles, Napa cabbage, carrots and ginger. Rolled and fried. Last night was egg rolls that had been frozen since mid-august. Proving that these are very freezable. I made a dozen at first. Served with sweet chili and hot mustard.

    Sesame Street rocks!

    I'd eat all the cashews before they made into the dish....
    My wife learned this years ago so doubles up when buying and hides some.
    Great looking dish

    Cashew Chicken-ish

    Huskee Not sure if this should be here or SUWYC Fall....... liked the prep of the chicken in one recipe (little cornstarch and s&p as opposed to full on breading). Liked the sauce in another recipe. I added red bell because it looks good and I had to use it up. Garnished with scallions. Steam rice. Egg rolls made with my SE Asian sausage and glass noodles, not shown: cold sesame cucumbers. Overall, very tasty. This meal brought to you by the color brown. 😂😂😂

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.

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.
