    Doin' some thick cut X-mas ribs. Love the smell coming out of my Big Green Egg! I use cherry wood chunks for smoke flavor.

    We don't eat a ton of beans. In fact my last chili was beanless. I like beans alright but my girlfriend does not. When we go to the food carts for dinner and she orders a burrito it's double beef hold the beans extra cheese add avocado.

      This has been a really cold fall but over the past week temps have crept up into the high-30's and low 40's during the day. Anyhow, last Thursday we had surf/turf with roasted sweet potatoes and a simple salad with a Caesar vinaigrette. The steak, foil packed mushrooms with minced garlic and potatoes were cooked on the top rack of the 14.5 WSM with the bowl removed. I lit 2/3 of a compact chimney of Kingsford Professional and poured it over a single layer of Kamado Joe lump. A golf-ball size of pecan wood added a kiss of smoke. 16-20 count shrimp was cooked on the gasser.

      Reverse sear here:

        There's a reason why I only make beef stock once per year - it is a labor-intensive pain in the rear. My stock is a combination of what I got from an Emeril cookbook plus a couple of Cooks Illustrated ideas. Having made this stock for a decade, I now proclaim it to be my own. I use a 16-quart stock pot (it's almost a cauldron).

        The beef bones are brushed with olive oil, salt and pepper and roasted for 20 minutes or so. Here they are about to go in the oven:


        I take 1-2 pounds of lean ground beef and brown it in some water in the big pot:

        ​A couple of cans of tomato paste are thinned with some red wine vinegar and the mixture is spread over the bones which go back into the oven for a half hour. Fresh veggies also roast for a half hour and are topped with canned tomatoes:

        Once everything is roasted it's all added to the stock pot along with: Salt, black pepper corns, oregano, red wine and bay leaves.

        Here it is after much work filtering out all of the bones, veggies, fat, etc...this is what was left after I measured out what I needed for our Christmas beef stew:

          Craigar. I used that wine in the beef stew I made this morning. I used an entire bottle plus maybe a cup out of a second bottle. Because the bottle was open my wife and I drank it. I fully subscribe to the notion that if it’s not good enough to drink then it’s not good enough to cook with.

          An instantpot or similar programmable pressure cooker would make that no longer a chore. There's a function on mine that alternates the pressure to "stir" when making bone broth. Chuck everything in, no smells, only 1 mess to clean, and then about 1/4 of the time as well. Just something to think about

          I can attest to the value of a pressure cooker for this kind of work. But I'm also not messing with a recipe someone has made his own over a lot of years! Except to try it out!

        90F today and the kettle was not being cooperative. Using lump charcoal and 2 small splits of Citrus wood could not get the kettle to lower than 290F. 2 smallish bone out pork bellies with MMD. I'm not sure how much quicker the cook took as we were enjoying a windless day outside. Results were good. Grilled some "Ou Kraal" Boerewors (sausage) at the end of the belly cook.

          Nothing says “Merry Christmas” like a fresh smoked batch of bacon! 🤣 Taking one of the thirds to mom and dad tomorrow. 10+ lb Costco pork belly wet cured 5.5 days. Smoked on the 26” w/ SNS with cherry and apple chunks. Took longer this time (3.5 hours vs normal 2.5) not sure why. Ran at ~230F most of the cook, and after 2:45 they were still ~140F IT so I opened up the vents and hurried it up. Had a test taster slice, man it’s so good right off the cooker!

            Lots going on here today!

            Christmas tradition is for my Oma and I to make carne adovada and posole for Christmas Eve dinner with the family. Got that done as well as my first pavlova for Christmas Day dessert. During al that, made a few brats on the grill along with my homemade kraut and onions. No pics of that though!

            And later tonight I’ll have a tri tip ready to! Not sure why I decided that would be dinner tonight when I’ve been picking at the salsa and carne after lunch! Haha.

                We love it. Had it for Christmas dinner last night. You can make a big batch and freeze it too.

              Yesterday’s Morris family Christmas I was told finger foods were the theme of the day. So I made ribs, blasphemy style...they paired well with the Jalapeño jelly cookies from the night before!

            Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

            maverick PT55 thermometer

            A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

            slow n sear

            The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

            Bring The Heat With Broil King Signet's Dual Tube Burners

            the good one grill

            The Broil King Signet 320 is a modestly priced, 3-burner gas grill that packs a lot of value and power under the hood. Broil King's proprietary, dual-tube burners get hot fast and are able to achieve high, searing temps that rival most comparatively priced gas grills.

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

            the good one grill

            The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

            Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

            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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

            Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

            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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

            The Swiss Army Knife Of Thermometers

            Placeholder

            The smart folks at ThermoWorks have finally done it: The Swiss Army Knife of thermometers, two in one. Start with the industry standard food thermometer, the Thermapen MK4, (Platinum Medal winner) truly instant (2 to 3 seconds) precise (+ or – 0.7°F). Then they built in an infrared thermometer ideal for measuring the temps of pizza stones, griddles, and frying pans (also great for finding leaks around doors and windows in your house).

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

            NK-22-Ck Grill

            Their NK22CK-C 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 NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

            Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

            masterbuilt gas smoker

            Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
