    Big Fail

    This dosen't deserve to be in What are you cooking channel. 1st the steak a porterhouse. My wife is still unwilling to go into a grocery store unless it's Trader Joe's or Whole Foods, BJ's or Wegmans. WTF. We are fully vaccinated. This is going to change real soon. So via pickup she gets 2 porterhouse. When I see them, oh boy this is bad stuff. You would never go into store and select these. So I Q'ved a couple of hours at 135, chilled and seared on C.I. It was dry brined and pepper. So taste was not an issue. Meat quality sucked. Told my wife what is left and the one in freezer is all hers. No arguement.
    Now I found this recipe;


    great concept but the time in oven is not right. Way over done. I like the idea and will adjust to make it work. So, it turned into a liquid dinner. Not the worst ending.

    I think SUWYC is perfect for fails too, at least I usually share mine there. After all, the majority of us are always perfecting our crafts and crap happens

    I view fails as a stepping stone, not a stumbling block.
    Happy Grilling to you and PBR too.


      SUWYC is a good place for even the things that don't go well. We can all learn from, and relate to cooks just not working out for one reason or another. And you will get a lot of sympathy.

      There is however a thread just for those cooks that ran off the rails before the station. Give the posts, and the comments a look through, and decide if you want to post to that thread or not. It's all in good fun, but certainly not everyones cup of tea.



        Please remember, anything about food, cookers, cooking, fuels, restaurants, etc does not go in Off Topic Discussion. Thanks.

          Does TJ's, Whole Foods, BJ's Or Wegmans have magical anti-Covid powers? Is this where Jack bought his magic beans?

        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

        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.

        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 because temperature control is so much easier.

        Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

        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’.

        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

        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.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.
