    Easy Peel Garlic

    Stumbled across this yesterday well worth a try.

However, I will occasionally have a vanilla porter float in the summer (Empyrean Vanilla Porter w/a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream) as I usually drink stouts & porters in the colder months, pale ales & IPAs in the warmer months. I have to add Not Your Father's Root Beer to beers I use for floats.

    I tried this technique last night with very little luck. I need more practice and probably a different knife. My little paring knife kept breaking the cloves and I still had to peel them. Then to top it off, the wife trashed my little garlic shaking jar I have been using.

      Craigar it also looks like she is using elephant garlic instead of normal garlic. Unless her hands are wicked small those are some huge cloves on that bulb

        ComfortablyNumb well. Clearly you know your garlic. We don't get those fancy named ones here in my local. You get regular garlic or elephant "garlic". Would love to see the different ones that you grow.

        AverageJoe I have grown it for the last ten years, a quarter to a full acre. At one point I was growing over twenty varieties, a real pain keeping them all separate. So I finally narrowed it down to my best hardneck, a Russian Red, and four softnecks, and I was trying to narrow those down to one when I moved. Currently nothing in ground.

        For just a few cloves, this works good;

        https://www.amazon.com/Fantes-43836-...42931083&psc=1

        Only drawback is after a few cloves it loses efficiency. A quick wash and you are good to go.

          I had a similar product, except it was a flat sheet of silicone instead of a tube, just put the clove on it, fold it over once, and give it a roll with the palm of your hand. Worked pretty good.

      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.

      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.

      GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

      grill grates

      GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another. You can even throw wood chips, pellets, or sawdust between the rails and deliver a quick burst of smoke to whatever is above. Every gas grill needs them.

      Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

      masterbuilt gas smoker

      Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
