    Looks like we are finally staying home for the big game instead of going to friends houses, so told the fam that they could each request something. Doing a Polar Plunge in the am so won’t have time to do much smoking before the game. With that caveat below are the current food stuffs that will be made:

    Pretzel bites (daughter)
    Mac and cheese (son) - daughter has also requested bacon to be offered as a mix in
    Armadillo eggs (me)
    Pepperoni roll (me)

    Buffalo chicken meatballs are also a maybe

    Wife has not submitted her request yet.

      HawkerXP - will be running into the Long Island Sound (the body of water between CT and Long Island, NY and a sliver of Westchester county, NY). Probably temping at a balmy 40 degrees right now.

    Be careful about that polar plunge. The science guys are expecting a repeat that weekend of the early part of this week.

      Since the Rams are from California I will be cooking up some tri-tip. Well, at least that is the excuse I am using. Although who really needs excuses to cook tri-tip?

      I thought about lobster rolls for the Patriots but didn't want to bother with paying for lobster, finding the right rolls, etc. So right now it is looking like tri-tip and other random snacks. And I am sure I will find a way to get some chicken wings on the table.

      This will be the first Superbowl party I've been able to attend in many years, since I work every Sunday night. Got a short vacation coming up. And I wasn't asked to cook anything. So I get a night off of work and a day off from cooking. Time to be lazy and enjoy life for a night.

        I usually plan a menu about a week out. The Superbowl is just outside of that week. So I think it makes sense to start giving it some thought or it will sneak up on us. It just occurred to me that dry January will be over then so I better start thinking about my cocktail menu as well.

      Don't know if I'm going to have my smoker back yet so a bit hard to plan. A lot of the people we know go out to the bars and take advantage of all the food and drink specials and the party atmosphere. I'm the opposite i'd prefer to stay away from the bars. Cabs are impossible to get after the game etc.

      One thing I can say for sure is wings! I've got plenty in the freezer. I will fire up the Weber kettle throw some smoke on them then into the deep fryer then tossed in some buffalo sauce and some in some Sweet Baby Ray's sweet chili sauce. As long as I got the deep fryer going probably do some O rings and some tater kegs.

            I'm definitely not watching the game, too painful... In addition to zebra, Goodel sausage (to feed the gators, not fit for human consumption) seems to be the most common request from my football family. 😂

                Legit story that I think the smoked ham we did for Annual Gift Day was better than the prime rib I made the week before. Wife was amazed by how good the ham was. Pretty close to the straight meathead-Lillie process.

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

            Placeholder

            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

            Placeholder

            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 Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

            Placeholder

            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.

            Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

            Placeholder

            Placeholder

            The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it's easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

            Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

            Placeholder

            The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. 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'.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

            Placeholder

            Napoleon's 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.
