Straight out of the can/bottle

05 November 2018 - 10:26 PM

I know in starting this thread there are some here who could easily be deemed world class cooks/chefs. I have and do follow many with the utmost respect and admiration. I do cook often and share here on occasion. But sometimes, I admittedly eat stuff "straight out of the can, or bottle" as it were.. Can't help it. I confess. I like some stuff "as is" ready to go. Tonight with cold beer, here is my dinner (long day, no time to cook.) I'm a sucker for "spaghetti-o's" cold right out of the can too...


Am I an oddball or does anyone else like stuff "straight out of the can?"

Local TV appearance

20 August 2018 - 08:53 PM

Last week, I was invited to participate in a SCETV (PBS) television show called "Making it Grow." It is a "live" program done by the SC Dept. of Agriculture. They did give me a fair bit of airtime and oddly enough I was more nervous in this than most of my day job police dealings. My "special lady friend" killed it with the visuals (props where due). Don't know the range of audience, but I ain't complaining on the results...... ;)   Here's the link. A bit dry - but was fun nonetheless... There were a myriad of rules of things you could/couldn't say. That was a challenge. Did the best I could. If your time/interest permit, check it out.



Smokin with the Warrant Man

06 May 2018 - 11:52 AM

Iron Mike has been killing the smoking thread for a while. Some good weather and finally a little spare time, so I thought I'd bring my game...


My big smoker bit the dust some time ago, so I put together a small charcoal model I got as a gift a few years back, 




I know it might be sacrilege to some, but I prefer using electric smokers because I rarely have time to properly tend to charcoal, So I bought an electric element and with a few mods, I'm in business!

I usually like Mesquite, but had some Hickory leftover,so Hickory it will be....




Smoker ready to go for later... time to brine.... what's it gonna be? Chicken I reckon....
