    Treating myself for New Year's

    Well, it's only New Year's once a year, so I went to my favorite butcher. Bought myself 500 grams / 18 oz of Japanese A5 Wagyu (from the Gunma prefecture). I'm gonna cook it like I've done before: indirect heat with smoke. Then sear in a cast iron pan. Think it's gonna be a winner.

    I have just unwrapped it and applied the dry brine, so now it's back in the fridge until tomorrow.


    I've bought a cabernet from California, I hope it goes well together with the beef. It's a Black Stallion:

      I'm doing chili in the CI Dutch Oven poppers and pigs in a blanket. Not even close. Enjoy!

      Ok I started w 2 6 lb boneless. I may not make friends w this kind of honesty, but I tend to lose most fat when I cook. Beneficial fat stays, 3 lbs of kernel nasty ribeye fat goes. I don’t wanna cook it and I don’t want the waste on plates. My preference, guests seem to dig it. What’s left are caps (SD) and yet to be tied roasts/steaks. Little pile o’ scraps from the tail don’t suck either. $4.97/lb.

      RichieB Dewesq55 we’ll eat our peasant food. Who needs Waygu beef anyway ?????

        What @Troutman said about the Black Stallion. Heck, a good cabernet pairs well with just about anything.

            If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

            Placeholder

            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.

            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

            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.

            Green Mountain's portable Davy Crockett Pellet Smoker is one mean tailgating and picnic machine. But it's also gaining popularity with people who want to add a small, set it and forget it pellet smoker to their backyard arsenal. And with their WiFi capabilities you can control and monitor Davy Crocket from your smart phone or laptop.
