I agree with you Savina Red  its a  steal at that price... the Blue colored ones is out of stock...willing to wait as we have a weber & another smoker,

but that is real nice & versatile.

Its quite big & can surely fit 19 burgers as I saw one at Walmart...I can see doing pizza on that too...

 

yes I did pizza on mine and it turned out really good. 




#1558011 Fermentation vs Non-Fermentation

Posted by SavinaRed on 05 June 2018 - 08:52 AM

Its a matter of personal preference. I have done several fermented batches but I prefer the non fermented sauces I make over the fermented. 




#1557093 Hot Sauce Bubbles

Posted by SavinaRed on 01 June 2018 - 07:04 AM

My guess it that is the stuff that floats to the top when cooking the sauce that I always skim off and discard and it looks like you didn't do that and it stayed in the sauce that went into the bottles. That is my guess from what I can see in your bottles.




#1556741 My wife is mad at me. Ghost peppers were involved.

Get a glass cutting board. You can actually get the heat out of those.

I usually dice my peppers on the plate I'll be using for dinner so my food can soak in the juices.

ditto glass or plastic stay away from the wood if you are married...................   :)

#1555775 Berry Varieties

Posted by SavinaRed on 26 May 2018 - 07:55 AM

If you have not tried one of these berries try and find one. I picked mine up 2 years ago at Home Depot. They are called Hula Berries or Pineapple Strawberries. They are delicious. My plants are going on there 3rd year and the berries this year are twice the size of last years crop.

#1555772 If Gardening a Family thing for you?

Posted by SavinaRed on 26 May 2018 - 07:44 AM

I do all the gardening and we all do the pickin and eaten. So far this year I've picked a few ripe cherry tomatoes, lots of various types of blueberries, strawberries , mulberries and raspberries. I have over 30 varieties of berries in my garden and we love them. Next to ripen very soon will be plums, nectarines and peaches in early June. We picked some to try this week and they are sweet and tart but in a couple of weeks they will be nothing but sweet heaven  :)

I had the 20 inch model in grey with the cart and it actually fit more than my large BGE. It cooks great and for the price its a no brainer. You can always get something larger if you need it down the road.

#1554800 [May 21] What are you working on this week?

Posted by SavinaRed on 22 May 2018 - 08:28 AM

Hijacked 6 free 40% screens 3x3-4 from dumpster behind work and will be fastening them together for redneck shade cloth

nice score !




#1554733 [May 21] What are you working on this week?

Posted by SavinaRed on 21 May 2018 - 07:39 PM

I have all my container peppers and maters in fabric pots and air prune containers, no more plastic nursery containers in my yard. All the other peppers and maters are in raised beds or in the ground this year. 

 

I had to put a few support stakes on several branches on my Nectarine and Peach tree as the weight was bending them like a half moon shape.

 

The other thing I'm working on every morning and evening this week is eating fresh blueberries and raspberries :)  I have 20 plus berry plants and they are yummy. My strawberries are starting to ripen as well so I'm in berry heaven this week.

yours looks great my weather was just to cold for it to do well 

Well dang. Sorry about that. What happened?

This little plant has several baby peppercorns. I'll have to build it something to climb on. Who would have thought peppercorns could be so exotic and neat.a0319de076ccb512a4ecf4add66fd40e.jpg
