    Heated up Friday night at the Johnson’s house with a quick rotisserie beer brined chicken. Now Netflix with the family since Basketball is cancelled.

    I think he or she made a bad decision. I think he or she is gonna need that toilet paper the morning after especially if they bought Budweiser.

    It’s been a while since I’ve posted here so I thought I would post a picture of some Salmon Candy that I made yesterday. However I forgot to include a shot of the salmon on the Grill! This was my second attempt at this recipe and it turned out much better than the first. My 1st run was using Steve Raichlen recipe from his “Project Smoke” Cookbook. Followed the recipe pretty close including an 8 hour brine followed by a 2 hour air dry in the fridge and about a 225F smoke for about 2 hours. The end result was lots of Albumin and not the deep smoky salmon color I was looking for. Went back to the drawing board and followed the brine recipe once again and brined for about 16 hours and then air dried in fridge for about 20 hours. Smoked between 150-185 for about 4 hours and then raised temp to about 225 for another 2 hours. This time it was a winner IMHO! Cheers, Paul

    With all this Beer Virus talk there has been a crazy run on Toilet paper in the middle Georgia region. In the eight closest Walmarts to my house there is not a single roll of toilet paper to be found and no hand sanitizers and when the toilet paper ran out they started going for the baby wipes. Food was plentiful. I guess having a clean rear end is a bit more important than stocking up on food .............

    @Tyrus I have ordered a hand held I was just using what I had on hand at the time. @tony b I found the thermometer once I unpacked all the boxes this morning. I’m about 6 hours into cooking two 9lb bone in pork butts

    I'm in total withdrawal - no March Madness?? They cancelled the local hockey games, too and our baseball opening day has been pushed back 3 weeks (at least for right now.) Almost everything here involving crowds of people is being cancelled. I had a concert ticket for the 27th - CANCELLED! Fortunately, I have lots of TP (I buy the bulk packages all the time at CostCo) and plenty of food in the freezer/pantry to last weeks.

    If you didn't receive a thermometer with your KK, contact Dennis. It's standard equipment on all KKs. I'm sure he'll have the warehouse expedite you one.

    Not everyone hits the mark on the first run but it's normal. SO push em down if they came up and seal with some grout when it cools, that's if you feel that area is solvent free. KInda looks like it vented well in that spot by way of the crack. Nice chicken Troble and congratulations on a job well done. Scary ain't it, gets the blood rolling going over 500.

    Nope the corn husks - LOL I have enough toilet paper - we went to Walmart this afternoon and stocked up on some basic supplies. We could easily self quarantine for a month or three. Also stopped by the local Piggly Wiggly and got a cryo pac of 2 Boston Butts. In the end we swung by the liquor store and stocked up on alcohol. Just in case the world gets really crazy I'm not going to be without some medicine. I've also decided since we stocked up so good I'm not going back to Walmart or large grocery store until after May 1st. We'll let the Beer Virus run its course.

    First cook is in the books. I did the burn in and let it stay at 520 degrees for around 4 hours then on its way back down I threw some chicken breasts on there that I could use for quesadillas for my kids this weekend. The chicken was cooked at around 425 which is a bit high but it turned out juicy and tasty after cooking the chickens I opened up the vents to heat it up Hot again and I noticed an issue on the top where some bubbling up is occurring and I smell solvent again. I believe this is normal but would love some feedback I do have two pork butts marinating in the fridge that I’m going to cook tomorrow for the first real cook on my KK

    Years ago I went to the Azores and today I was yearning for a taste left behind. This is a chicken right off the internet with um white wine, port wine, brandy, shallots, chicken, parsley, garlic, s&p, presunto, bay leaves, chive, garlic, paprika and it should have had crushed red pepper to kick it up but I followed the recipe against my better judgement. It was still good but, on a level playing field. I added a chunk of apple wood with the top off for the first 1/2 hr for smoke and then raised the temp higher to finish. I used CoCo char and that stuff brought us to temp in lickety split, no kiddin..yep it was fast and then into crusin mode. Easy Peasy. My wife bought that ceramic at the Goodwill for $3, imagine that, brand spankin new.......it ain't new anymore. That's the only thing I would've added, some zing..a bit of dash. Elsewhere on another corner of the yard some jerky was coming to life, two pits running, both with good outcomes. Sorry for the money shot on the Frango na pucara, it was fuzzy but it tasted like money . Stay safe and out of harms way.

    You mentioned a temp probe only going to 565 before it gets errors. I have found food monitoring devices with probes unnecessary, although I have used them in the past......I simply open the lid and check the food with a hand held. Generally the thermometer, time and appearance are all you need. When using a Guru you might as well put in the meat probe for your wifi but I like it glove free.

    That looks like a lovely sauce and pot @Tyrus. Yes, we all need to try and keep well. Although others are saying you need to catch a little bit of virus to build immunity. We will see which happens!

    Tyrus that’s a butter seal over the top of the pate. We enjoy Brisbane. Those islands are north and south Stradbroke Island, AKA Straddie to locals. Fraser Island just north is world heritage national park. It’s the worlds largest sand island. Pretty cool place if you like to travel. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    delivery day! It’s raining today but fortunately we got the KK from the truck to the side yard/basketball court. backyard won’t be ready for 3-4 weeks so trying to decide if I open and use the KK now and move it again later or wait. It’s raining for the next 7 days and we’re supposed to go to Peru end of month but who knows with this corona virus stuff.....I’m debating whether or not to put my Eazy Up this weekend so I can cook and break it in.....I’m sure I’ll do that. But excited to get it here!

    @Pequod - thought you'd marinated those drumstick in bad Mexican beer - thankfully not!

    I thought it was a custard in appearance, the sprig of rosemary makes the pic. Gotta say I was curious so I googled up Bisbane and took a view. I noticed the large and small islands off to the east all dedicated to a national park. I thought what a great idea someone had to set aside all that generous space right next door in contrast to Bisbane. A nice place to live, wouldn't yah think, must be nice.

    Tony, Mac, Pequod, they all look delish. Corona chicken........ seriously, pequod are you trying to stir up the media further? Lol. Here’s my land liver pate. And playing around with the camera on a new phone. Lots and lots and lots of butter, cream, and of course liver. I’ll try it on some toast for breakfast. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Another fairly nice day here yesterday (gloomy and misty today), so I took advantage and grilled out some pork tenderloins. 350F direct, apple wood chunks. Rubbed with a combo of suya pepper and berbere. Plated with some roasted kale (with B&W sesame seeds) and plain rice. Sauce was a new one - white miso paste, mirin, butter with shiitake mushrooms. I liked it; nice counterpoint to the spicy pork.

    We have air! So I have taken apart the pump and had a look on the inside; I was wrong about the compressor, it is a basic AC bellows style pump. It’s pretty crude but it works (see video); interesting design from an engineering point of view but it does actuate and there are not holes in the bellows. My next concern was the kinking in the outlet tubes. I had already removed the bellows assembly by now so I knew they were capable of pushing air. Next I removed the t-piece and manually used the bellows and found the were working. Next - virtual CFD as I call it at work: I blew into the tubes and found there was no possible flow through the Long line. I took the t piece completely off and found that there was a manufacturing defect in the t piece: flash where the two pins meet in the mold (tool maintained not well would be my Guess: getting pins to blank off like this). So I drilled out the flash and presto: it pumps air now! so you don’t get curious and open one up: I have included photos and a video (note it runs off mains so don’t open it and risk 240/120 v shock!) 7B4AAEEE-A3B4-4FE9-BD1F-5AFBC7FC0826.MOV

    The main tube should be angled towards the KK. I have only ever used pellets and I've never had a problem. I lite it in the side holes with a MAPP torch. Although you would think the going through the lit pellets adds a bunch of oxygen, it really doesn't as the burning pellets uses up most of the available oxygen going in from the air pump.
