    I had a group of college students over for dinner on Wednesday night. In addition to grilled vegetables, I made this grilled chicken and these roasted potatoes, both of which turned out quite wonderfully. I wasn't sure if they would take to the potatoes, but they all ate seconds, so it must have tasted pretty okay! Click image for larger version

    Brisket "burnt ends" served with green beans in butter and a glass of Lodi Petite Sirah. I put burnt ends in quotes because they really are just hunks of brisket and not the ends and not burnt. They were from a package at Costco (Cowboy BBQ brand). First, they weren't that great out of the package, many pieces were tough, flavor was OK. And as I mentioned, they weren't burnt or the ends. I charred them up a bit after heating them up (SV at 160F for 30 minutes from frozen) and that helped. Last, I was a bit miffed by the packaging. It was 1.68 pounds and sold by the pound. My plan was to divvy them up into three 1/2 pound packages and freeze. After the second package, none was left. Turns out the sauce packet (packed separately) was part of the weight and it weighed 1/2 a pound! The sauce was pretty good though. I will not be buying them again.

        Ratatouille is new to me and it's my new favorite summer vegetable dish. I'm going to have to order it in some restaurants to see how it's supposed to taste but it sure tastes good off the grill.

        I kept staring at this plate, just looking. Then I had to reread the all the text.

        I thought it said “meatball ratatouille.”

        Still looks great though.

        Oh man, love jerk chicken.
        Go to MoBay every year, Scotchies on the coastal highway east of the airport is the very best.
        We stay at the Holiday Inn, it has the Jerk Hut on site, a close second.
        Otherwise my son get authentic jerk sauce from a buddys mom, just like the islands....I'm homesick

        The standing freezer in my garage started to frost over earlier this week and a few items on the top shelf started to thaw. I guess that meant I should cook em. 1st was the turkey breast. Ribs to come later this weekend.

          pjlstrat The daikon was very good. I treated them like the carrots and boiled them for 5 minutes then ran cold water over them to stop them from over cooking. Very tender and very tasty.

        Yesterday was interesting. My wife and boys went to Cedar Point while I stayed home and worked during the day and had the evening to myself. I decided to cook chili on the grill. Details to follow in-between pics...

        Pretty basic. The pot did have some diced veggies but this was a weeknight pot ostensibly for myself with leftovers in mind.

          Ya had me at "chili", then knocked it right smack dab outta th park with cast iron, an kettle, an lime, an etc., Brother!

          Looks like it reduced down, nicely! Whatcha usin, CI-wise? Guessin, like ~5-6qt Lodge DO? Sry, , jus tryin to learn me some...

          CI uncovered, kettle lid on begs th question: any kinda wood chunks involved? cause, goodness knows, I'da used some, but then, again, I'm summat of an anomaly, certainly not representative of typical hominids, thankfully...

          Mr. Bones sorry for the long delay. I just now saw your questions. I'm using a 6-quart Lodge. I didn't use any wood, just charcoal. I've tried wood with chili in the past and found it to be overly pervasive, off-putting. I prefer the subtlety of going only with charcoal for chili on the grill.

          Yep. I like to squeeze it in at the end of the cook as opposed to adding it early. Add it early and it melds with everything else. Add it at the end and it adds a nice citrus pop.

      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.

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 Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

      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.
