    Leftover Binge

    Did not see a channel that fit so here it is. Mods move if you choose to.

    I have not cooked much this week. Well, not at all. I decided to purge the freezers (fridge & basement) of "leftovers". This stuff accumulates. So far, Eye Round, Top Round, Briskett. Friday will be buffalo wings done on vortex. Saturday I found about 1/2 rack of ribs. Going to do the McRib recipe. However no rolls so time to bake.

    Ha! I have been doing the same thing. You’re right it builds up and you don’t have a clue. Then boom, you need to have a week or more of leftovers. But that’s not a bad thing!


      Love left overs. With the wife and I being empty nesters we have not changed cooking habits. We cook as we always did then vac pack and freeze. I believe we could eat for weeks out of the freezers.


        Ditto. Been on a tear recently and freezer is getting full so been whittling it away. Last night was Thai grilled steak using a NY strip I tucked away in the freezer.

        next on my list is some sous turkey wings I cooked over thanksgiving and never got around to eating. Not sure what I’ll do with them. Maybe a pot pie or shepherds pie. Maybe just fry them up for turkey buffalo wings. Got some thinking to do.

        Still got about another week of freezer meals before I can start restocking.


          Our youngest just left home and we are only just getting acclimatised to shopping and cooking for two. Plenty of freezer meals cuts down on shopping and challenges the cook to improvise, I like!!!


            Living on the Central Florida east coast, it's imperative to have a full freezer. You never know when you may be days or even weeks without power.


              Leftovers are great and cuts back on the grocery bill. That stuff is way too expensive to throw away!


                Way to go! I feel inspired.


                  Misc. Or General Food Discussion is where something like this would go. Off Topic is for anything off the topic of food, cooking or cookers.


                    The chest freezer is with the ex at the house and I go by there and shop out of it. Fortunately we are on good terms.

                    after over two months out I think I am down to veal (for my home
                    made brats), a butt, stocks, various fats, some Wagyu patties and likely a few other things.

                    im working on it. I too need to learn to scale it back.


                      This reminds me. I have half a pig coming soon. Need to clear out the freezer. Thanks.


                        Looking in my freezer reminds me to write dates and even contents on every package.

                        Green Mountain Grills Trek smoker

                        Green Mountain’s portable Trek 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 Trek from your smart phone or laptop.

                        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 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.

                        Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                        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’.
