    Good introduction to Paprika!

    Here’s another, similar spice from the Basque region of Spain/France. It’s a bit spicier than sweet paprika. It’s used throughout southern France and the Basque areas for seasoning meats, soups, and beans.

      We grow quite a few paprika plants of a few varieties. Notably a Hungarian, a couple of Spanish varieties, and then Gardeners surprise, i.e. whatever Collette plants. Most get smoked and all get ground. I prefer the Spanish style as they seem a little bolder and a little spicier, which is my style of cooking. There is absolutely nothing scientific or orderly in my process (or life, for that matter), I'm the son of a son of cat skinner so I go by the seat of my pants. This is a nice article, thank you for sharing.


        I tried growing smoked paprika but it always dies around 125 degrees

          You guys got it all wrong. After it sprouts, transplant it into the chimney of your smoker. Use the cold smoke setting on the charcoal offset, be sure it is plugged in and filled with pellets.
          In a few months harvest your smoked paprika.

          Optional water with PBR for drunken, smoked paprika.

        A useful introductory primer, Thanks, Amigo!

        I have several types, my dang self, but knowledge is always welcomed!


          My grandfather was Hungarian, so paprika is a part of daily life for me. Hungarian sweet went on just about everything growing up.

          In my kitchen there is always a dish of coarse kosher salt on the counter, and the three main spices right above it are black pepper, garlic, and paprika. Can think of very few dishes that don’t get that trio.

        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.

        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!

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.

        Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

        The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.
