    The Pork Chop Wall is Broken

    Until tonight, my wife (a wonderful woman in so many ways) would not eat pork chops. When ecowper posted his pork chops in harissa marinade, she agreed to give them a shot. Man oh man, those thing were great. My wife ate the whole thing. I was stunned. She NEVER eats an entire piece of meat. But it was clean plate club time tonight. Thanks for the recipe Eric.

    Good job. That is a solid recipe for sure!

      He makes a pretty good chili, too! Not as good as mine, but pretty dang good, nonetheless!

        CaptainMike I'd be willing to volunteer as a chili cook-off judge.

      I can't take any credit for that pork chop recipe other than finding it on SRF and thinking "holy cow, this might be good" .... and it was good. So good that when I told my wife I was going to make that again for dinner, her response was "yum" ..... historically speaking, her response to my suggestion of pork chops was "if you must".

      CaptainMike don't make me come down there and sabotage your chili

        CaptainMike - You two better knock this smack talk down a bit. It is upsetting. I suggest you both come down to Chico and battle it out. I propose a 12 hr time limit and no precooked ingredients - including brisket. For safety purposes, Alec Baldwin will not be able to fire the starting pistol.

        Now THAT is a win, way to go! Maybe it's petty, but my proudest moment of marriage was getting my wife to like cooked fish. She likes sushi, but would not eat cooked catfish, trout, salmon, whatever. She loves my salmon and even requests it! Don't tell her, but I've been overcooking it for years on purpose and slowly dialing it back to where I like it and she raves how much better it is each time. One of these days I'll tell her, but I think I'll save it for my obituary

        Up to a couple of years ago, my husband wouldn't eat BBQ ribs. He doesn't like fatty meat at all, so I was always careful with my choice of ribs, usually babybacks with no loin meat. Still no go for him.

        So rib smokes for me always involved smoking a pork tenderloin for him.

        Then one evening we went out with friends and he ordered babyback ribs! I was amazed. And a bit hurt. He wouldn't eat my ribs but would order them at at BBQ place??? What the heck??? So the next time I smoked ribs I didn't smoke a pork tenderloin. He gobbled the ribs up and has loved them (and requested them many a time) ever since. Go figure.

        Now to work on the daughter who doesn't like to eat any meat that's still attached to a bone...another day, another challenge.

          one of our daughters won't eat ribs unless the meat is cut off the bone. She won't eat corn on the cob until the kernels are cut off the cob. Etc. Apparently, asking her about it several times, she doesn't enjoy "rib face".

          I've got a sister in law and one of her daughter's that won't touch ANY meat on a bone. They want boneless chicken, no ribs, and get grossed out if I serve bone-in chicken. Go figure!

      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.
