Live posting may be a bit of a challenge, the park is in a signal dead zone. I think some can get a cell signal. Wifi not available...it seems to get a bit better each year. We will see who has signals this year.😁
d3 is right up there with SmokenFire for the most Bling...killer competitors! and I'd be happy to have them cooking at a potluck where I'd be eating!!! :drool:
We have some awesome cooks coming to the campout/potluck. Food is always great...and the company is greater. I love talking with people I've known or met on THP and now get to see in person. Some people we've been seeing for 6 years! Pretty cool how a website has brought us together as friends.
PS-Yakima IS eastern Washington, so you win! Kanasket-Palmer state park is on the west WET side of the state. Beautiful park with some awesome day-trip fun on the river and in the general areas, and gorgeous greens and trees in the campground.
Yakima in the winter...probably clear and cold, dusting of snow......If you want REAL snow...and some really kickbutt cross country skiing...look up the Methow Valley.
Kanasket-Palmer is a beautiful state park! Right on the Green River for swimming, rafting, .... disposal of bodies (not in the state park!!! aka the Green River Killer....) OK that one has been solved.
voodoo 6- D3 can enter if he is here!!! We're not having any cooking competitions per se. It's a fun weekend campout and Saturday Potluck.
Thanks for posting that article, Voodoo 6. I don't understand a lot of the technical jargon, but the basic explanations coincide with what labs have told me over the years. I've also been told by various labs that do and those that don't do SHU testing, that there is some proprietary work going on behind the scenes as to their processes and methods. Some labs are set up for capsaicin testing, some are not.
Interesting note- the heat of the sample is referred to as pungency by the ASTA, a term that is also used for spices like garlic, cinnamon and paprika. It is only with chiles that the pungency rating gets correlated back to the Scoville Heat Units.
and Boss posted a link to P.Dreadie's Spicy Peach Cobler sans pictures thread.
Mason Jar can the peaches in a medium heavy sweet syrup with a couple hot chiles, some spices like what I listed (cinnamon, nutmeg, card, cor), then when you want some cobbler, dump the jar of peaches in the baking dish, top with the crumble or biscuit topping, bake and DONE!
