    Gassed up Pretzels

    Took the Cooks Country Ballpark Pretzels from the latest issue and thought I'd gas them up a bit. It need some practice but it was fun and the taste was good.

    Very nice Jon, look spot on. I have the same issue and I would say you nailed it. How did they taste? I am sure as good as they look. I love that Summit!!!

    So far from that issue, I have done the Senate Navy Bean Soup and the Easy Rustic Bread. My next endeavor is the Bourbon Butter Steak Tips

      Thanks jmeier, They tasted great. I took them up to the GF's work and I'm waiting on the reviews, I'm not happy with the look of them at all. Next time.

      I really enjoy that summit. I cashed in lots of road trip miles and points to make that happen.


        Could you hang them dudes on hooks. Or would that look too execution like?


          Not really, I mean they got the firing squad today.


            They got a Far Side joke where a guy facing the firing squad is getting his last cigarette lit, and a woman whose house is burning yells, "FIRE!!!!"


              Nice post Jon, way to go!

              They also make like the best pretzels.


                Their pretzel do rule! I had an issue with dough that felt overwork but it wasn't. To much pull back. I needed to let it rise a bit longer or maybe a warmer rise. I may have punched it down to hard out of habit. The recipe called to just deflate it. : 0

                I haven't worked dough from bread flour much other than for bread. It was difficult to rope. Resting it didn't help. ?????

                Once I figure that out I'm going to try and wood fire them in the pizza kettel

                  Nice job for your first try. Shaping pretzels takes practice. There are lots of videos on YouTube on that topic.

                  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.

Although it is not certified as all-weather, we have tested it outdoors in Chicago weather and it has not delaminated in three years, but there is minor fading.

                  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.

                  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.
