    Hasselback Potatoes With Duck Fat Spray (no kidding)

    Tried an proven old recipe with a slightly new twist last night. Looking for something with a "wow" factor to serve with prime rib at Christmas so a test run was in order. After normal prep and before adding the salt & pepper I applied a good dose of Duck Fat Spray. Duck Fat Spray is a Nebraska product I can find locally in most any store but I see they now sell it on Amazon. It's pricey ($8.49 - $9.99). I've tried it on chicken and turkey but I think it gets lost on poultry. It really loves potatoes. This was at 1 hour at 425 and realistically should have gone 1 hour at 450.

      customtrim : I'll give it a try in CI. That should amp up the temp.

    Duck Fat Spray - fantastic stuff!!! I would rank it up there with Dorothy Lynch for Nebraska products. Then again, I am a Husker homer. Try the Duck Fat Spray on popcorn instead of butter...just sayin'.

      Right on brother! Every now & then I will spice up Dorothy with some cayenne to give her a little bite. Back when I was a kid, mom used to get upset that I would use DL on just about everything. Ketchup on my burger? Nope, DL. Ha!

      Come to think of it, I have never dipped my Runza in DL. Hmm...I might have to give it a go this weekend. Speaking of Runza, our local guy in Papio does a fantastic job. Twice a year we order the mini Runzas for football parties and he will cook them up for us that morning. I like the minis over the regulars and that is saying something!

      Craigar ; I feel sorry for those who have never had a Runza. I like dipping mine in good old yellow mustard. When they used to have those awesome Wimmer's Polish dogs on the menu the mustard flowed like water here. For all the years i've been using DL it never dawned on me until earlier this year when I read their recommendation to use if for barbecue sauce. Love it on chicken thighs.

    That looks fantastic. I am always looking for a new potato option. Thanks.

          I had a doctor that gave me a book to read about the dangers of drinking. I ended up giving up reading. (Seriously I understand but couldn't resist the old Henny Youngman joke). Be well.

          Dang! Life was a lot more fun when we weren't trying to be healthy. Still think on most days my doctor is full of it. Felt better before I ever met the son of a beefsteak. Anyway I limit myself to one potato every couple of weeks. Throw that rule out over Christmas and New Years. Again, be well.

        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.

        Comprehensive Temperature Magnet With 80+ Important Temps

        Winner of the National BBQ Association’s product of the year award. This 8.5″ x 11″ magnet contains more that 80 benchmark temperatures for meats (both USDA recommended temps as well as the temps chefs recommend), fats and oils, sugars, sous vide, eggs, collagens, wood combustion, breads, and more. 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 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.
