Got this char-griller premium kettle for my birthday, it says its a smoker too. So after a little research and about 40 bucks for charcoal baskets and a pizza stone I'm gonna give it a shot. Here's the kettle Charcoal baskets Modified grate out of my old grill, had to cut the sides off, and hit it with a hammer a couple times so it would get past these bolts. Pizza Stone(heat diffuser) Water/drip pan Forgot to add the apple wood, it wasn't that bad to open everything back up. Glad I took out some of the center of the old grate. Iron mikes mustard Bbq for a binder and Montreal steak, some minced onions, salt and pepper on the rub. Questions, comments, and suggestions all welcome. This will be my...
This will start my food log for 2024. On New Years Eve my wife and I went out to eat at a place called "Frostproof Barbeque Co." I ordered what on consider to be one of the "real value meals" nowdays. Here is what I ordered, on the menu known as "THE PATRIOT"! This consists of a large hunk of brisket, a large pile of pulled pork and pulled chicken, 3 nice thick tender ribs, a large sausage, a cup each of potato salad, baked beans, and mac & cheese, finished off with two thick slices of Texas Toast. I did not eat all of this in one sitting, in fact I ate off of this for 3 days. The cost of this monstrosity: $25.00
Well, we are all in a mess, so lets have some fun and learn a few things along the way!  First and foremost might be that...you can make a burrito at home!!!  That's a bit facetious talking to this crowd here on THP, who have some of the maddest cooking skills on the interwhebz.    SO, lets post what we are cooking at home, what is made from the pantry, what was out of but substituted, all basic cooking skills.....   I'll get it started!   A couple days ago, talking with my son who is now 21 and living on his own for the last 2 years, he said..."I gotta go, Mom, the roasted chicken is done.  We're gonna eat dinner now."  :sniff:  AWW!!!!  I'm a happy mom.....    Here's what we did for family entertainment last weekend.  We rented Milo...
'Bout time we had a thread for all those that make their own dough and sauce. Too many good cooks on THP to let something as magnificent as that king of foods, pizza go unnoticed on this forum. This thread however comes with some rules to post... 1) Make your own dough and post the recipe. Thin crust. Whole wheat. Foccacia. NY or Chicago style. Naan....your choice! 2) Make your own sauce and post the recipe. Red. White. Olive oil w/ garlic. Whatever gets your mojo workin'! 3) Mandatory that it brings teh heat. Habs. Serrano's. Bhut's. T-Scorps. Fatalli. Hot sauce's and puree's will qualify. Using wimp sauce's such as Tabasco Brand or Franks will be ridiculed with extreme prejudice and boooooed heavily! 4) Toppings can be...
I know y'all cook up some great steaks so post them up in here.... I'll start us off… Getting up to room temp Throw it on the grill... Steak, mashed taters with Five counties cheese waiting to melt on top, and some peez Juices flowing… Yum! What u got?
Ok, I started with a Jim Beam barrel on Craigslist for $100 Sanded it down with a wire wheel on an angle grinder on the bands. 80 grit, then 120 grit, then 150 grit sandpaper "flapper" wheel on the oak Cleaned it up nice 5/8" self tapping stainless screws (predrilled pilot holes) in every stave to hold the bands up, and to stop the barrel from falling apart when I cut the top off. This took FOREVER Off comes the top, out comes the loose char. Smelled like smoky bourbony awesomeness Little 14" Weber "Smokey Joe" for the bottom. I drilled a ton more holes in this for better airflow, and altered the legs a little so it would sit lower Access door to refill water pan/charcoal Four 3/4" threaded pipe air vents w/ caps to...
Hey ya'll once again from the big dry ditch of Las Vegas. I had picked up some beautiful chix I wanted to deep fry but soon discovered I didn't have enough oil. Why not just drive down to the local grub store and buy it you ask? BECAUSE I WAS PISS DRUNK!! Alrighty then. I grab the bottle of Hornitos tequila and ready myself to begin the destruction. I fire up the cast iron dutch oven and just start throwing stuff in. Olive oil. Garilc. Julieanned shallot. Chix thighs. Gets a little blurry here but I somehow managed to debone the thighs without chopping off my leg but then all good cooks should be able to pull that off. The vast majority of experienced kitchen rats and riffraff cook much better after a bottle of wine or three. Those of...
Good day all,    I've just been searching for the I  LOVE WINGS! thread, and it seems to have disappeared! Is it so?!, what has happened to our famous thread of one of the greatest foods in existence?!   With that, I shall start a new topic on the subject.    With my days off finally rolling around, and a hankering for some bbq. ALDI has wings for $7 per 2kg, so I decided to make some wings, ablated with my home-grown Carolina Reapers. I may have wondered down a bad road here...   Fukushima wings, Chernobyl chicken, whatever you want, I have screwed myself.                      And some honey soy BBQ wings for sane people  
Hey y'all looking through the sacred THP scrolls it is apparent that most awesome of foods is sorely neglected. That's right chidren's, I'm talkin' about BURGERS!! Sliders. Pub burgers. Fast food style burgers. Gastro burgers. Cheffy burgers. CHEESEBURGERS!!! Single and double meat. Triple meat. Extreme burgers. Man vs. Food burgers....the list is endless but y'all get the idea. We won't go into the endless arguments of who created the first hamburger (Fletcher Davis) or what meat qualifies as a burger. Nonetheless....here are the rules for posting in this soon to be awesome thread: 1. Any meat goes. Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, rat, fish. Whatever, hunt it down and kill it with a knife. Its all good and I've included the options other...
This time of year I find myself cooking more and need a place to show off my stuff. This thread will be dedicated to all my cooking escapades but others are welcome to join in and share their cooking as well. Not much going on since the pizza TD, but I gotta say the wheelbarrow is growing on me. I have plans on constructing a pizza oven down the road so stay tuned. For now, no more pizza on the wheelbarrow.
Just like the title suggests, I wanted to show off my final products. Everything turned out pretty much exactly like how I envisioned it. Right down to the cute (IMHO) little jars I got off of Amazon. (2 oz jars) ...roughly $20. I don't remember if I got 20 jars or if it was 16 jars but either way, I have a total of 3 full jars of dried Carolina Reaper and the rest of them are full or 3/4 full of dried Habanero. I've given away several of the Habanero jars as gifts and I am going to keep 1 jar of the Carolina Reaper, send 1 to my son, and 1 to my brother. I'm pretty happy with the way everything turned out. This season I learned about Tomato Horn Worms (and how to keep them away) and also about stink bug bites on the fruit. Next...
Hi folks, I just came across some of these fried ramen noodle packages and thought I'd give them a whirl to see how hot they really are.   Following the instructions on the label, I boiled the noodles for 3 minutes in 300ml of water and drained most of the water, but kept enough of the starchy liquid to make the sauce with the contents of the red packet inside. Stir-fried the noodles and sauce for about 15 seconds and the results looked like this.   Stirred in the contents of the black packet and some sauteed veggies and it make a pretty good meal. Add a fried egg on top and you've got a cheap and complete meal for a little over a buck.   Heat-wise, this is the hottest Ramen noodle dish I've ever had straight out of the package. It's...
Bought a new carbon steel wok a couple weekends ago and seasoned it up, now enjoying using it on the charcoal weber.  The centre insert of the cast iron grate is perfect size for it.   I didn't get pics of the first dish which was a spicy ginger broccoli stir fry but managed to  get a few this time.    thin sliced pork, shit ton of ginger, garlic, carrots, water chestnut, broccoli, mushrooms, onion, pea pods, bok choy , Thai bird chiles,  finished with low sodium soy, oyster sauce , sesame oil and a bit of corn starch slurry to thicken.   the first time I had a bit too much heat so cut back on the charcoal this time but slightly too much , as it was missing that slightly smoky flavour you get from a perfectly hot wok.    Is anyone else...
I was looking for a breakfast thread and never found one that seemed open-ended enough to post on. So here y'all go!   Posty up your breakfast if you like, even if it's cold leftover pizza.   No time for words? No problem. Show us your awesome yellowish cell phone camera pic. No obligation to write out a recipe here if you don't want to.   Forgot to take a picture until halfway through the meal? Perfect! Selfie photo-op.   Whoops! You made brunch instead? That's cool... it counts.     I'll go first with a take on a Cuban breakfast called Huevos Habaneros. It means Havana Eggs, but it's not made with Habaneros. In fact, it's not traditionally spicy hot. (Cuban meals typically aren't.) So, I had to SoFlo it up a bit and call it something...
