#1649805 Finally, a Smoker I Can Call My Own

Posted by Ashen on Yesterday, 02:37 PM

Yeah, Popeyes here isn't really all that good either .

I find most fast food fried chicken pretty grim, but a chain here called Mary Brown's does it ok.

I almost always make it homemade when I get a craving though .

There are a couple in the Toronto area, I think one more opening soon.

The closest one is in a seafood city supermarket I have been too, but Jollibee hadn't opened yet when we were there .

I felt like Godzilla in downtown Tokyo though, surrounded by a thousand Filipinos averaging at least 8-9" shorter than me. :D

I need to stir fry some shishitos again.

Looks good Reggie.

It's a weird feeling with them bouncing off your skin as they try to land then take off because of the deet.

It's a one time deal, boss. I got special dispensation from Rajun. I will pick up a chimney and natural lighting materials.

Read my previous posts. I bought what the losers had. It would be nice to find local coal that fit the parameters, but it looks like internet purchases are my future...

Or maybe Ashen will visit me a nice barrel to make my own....

I didn't really have any useful recommendation on charcoal brands as all my preferred ones besides Dragon Breath, are Canadian companies.

I have heard good things about Wicked Good charcoal but the price to source it here has kept me from trying it, when I can get decent stuff much cheaper. Unfortunately my bulk deal supplier has shut down their store so now I am paying double what I used to but still decent price compared to most .

I think I remember you saying something about Colorado , there are some places that sell wicked good there.

You could look at going straight up wood coals with a burn barrel.

#1646380 Taco Hell sauce

Posted by Ashen on 05 August 2019 - 03:29 AM

Pinche salsa Wey.

#1646123 Why doesn't my hot sauce come out very hot?

Posted by Ashen on 03 August 2019 - 01:33 PM


Think of your sauce as alcohol.

It is rated by ABV. Alcohol by volume.

If You add a cup of water to 1cup of 40% ABV alcohol you now have 20% ABV .

Everything you add cuts down on your capsaicin by volume, without even getting into the masking properties of sweetness.

It is a great marketing ploy for these chain restaurants that advertise a ghost Pepper sauce, but the ratio is so small that it has less heat than a standard hab.

People think they are superheroes for eating ghost Pepper, but have no real inkling what a superhot is really about.

#1645362 The Salad Thread

Posted by Ashen on 30 July 2019 - 03:38 AM

Slap all that on a pita.

Grecko taco.

And splooge some jeek on it.

And squeezin's n' pleasin's of lemon.

That's date night material.

Because Greek salad tacos.

I'm your huckleberry.

Naw cause this is what came after it.
1 ft square platter with pork and chicken souvlaki, gyro meat, sausage , fried shrimp, calamari, rice. Not pictured was a bowl of tzasiki and plate of lemon roasted potatoes.

My wife charmed the owner so much by being excited that they had galaktobureko that he ended up giving our table a piece on the house. He even asked if she was Greek because of the questions and knowledge she had about Greek food.
