    Everyday Misc Cooking Photos w/ details

    Pequod, Now that bread does look good. One thing it"s missing, a side with a good olive oil mixed with a nice parm and some spice, Yes, I'd sure appreciate a slice and I'm sure it's as good as it looks just the way it is.

    The longer it stays in the brine the better the penetration. You could try injection of some sort after you remove from the brine for another flavor profile. Personally I would remove some of the skin and use a rub on those areas and leave some on in the area I felt would work with that covering. The wrap is subjective based upon the eye, it's progress, or what it's doing inside the KK and what you want it to look like. It should remain with the juice from a good brining but, wrapping in foil or paper is ok once a nice bark is present. Never wrapped anything in muslim cloth, I would think it acts as a wick and would draw away the juices. Anyway thats a start, an opinion and I'm sure others would approach the cook differently. Anyhow thats what makes it your signature because when it's all said and done your the only one there. Best of luck, you have a good tool to work with

    Such a shame Mac, being located a stones throw to some of the best fishing grounds and lobster in the world. I hope your not allergic. Anyhow you do make up for it many times over with the imaginative cooks you plate forward. However, I still find that thought hard to grasp. Excuse me while I wander away for a nice cup of seafood chowder.

    Fire action shots look fantastic, yum. Did you bring back any Tequila?

    A proper home for the kk

    Looks like you and your guests will be extra comfy sitting beneath that structure. Built to entertain. Hey Bruce, I think that's the new outdoor Alexa... you say, play me some smooth jazz Evo and VOILA.

    Cook time advise needed

    Start earlier and plan to take off long before your guests arrive. You can leave those briskets in the cooler for some time wrapped in foil and towel for awhile and they should fair well. Briskets can be a funny lot and sometime are difficult pushing the envelope on time. That"s what I would do and have done in the past. Choice vs prime, I find the prime cooking faster for some reason...but they stay easily 3 or 4 hrs in the cooler. You should do well,... time, temp and size are all variables, easily planned for if you've previously cooked them as you have, just give yourself some space. Good luck

    See you jumped right into the rotisserie and spun yourself a couple of nice lookin chickens. Still admire that putting zone

    1st Snow of the Season

    With Ma in her kerchief and I in my cap. we just settled down for a long winters nap. Hey, those railing supports seem to give a Little Mediterranean flavor to corn country in Iowa. Any Dire wolves in the area?
  9. I remember you going some time ago Toney and I wished you well with the pour. Nice to know. I asked the question regarding the plastic ball in the Guinness can while on tour in the factory and it was explained as element helping to recharge the process that is introduced generally at the tap. Nitrogen infusion. Ahh, a work of art that creates a smooth beer. It won the award for the best invention for that year. Seems to be a small hole in the plastic ball introduces pressurised gas after the can is opened thus starting the tiny bubble beer explosion. Taste good to me.

    Happy new KK owner

    Nice color and congratulations...sure looks awesome. Don't forget the big guy standing in front, they like BBQ too.
  12. Hope the pot works out, I'm sure it will. The damage to my liver may recover over time, besides all the delectable varieties and flavors of beers and with all the Irish whiskey well, this traveler will have to set aside his sneakers for a while, and recharge. Can there really be enough Guinness,,,I think not. Ireland is a step back into time, sparsely populated with many a rural area. I found it easy on the mind and enjoyable to be there.
  13. The island set is nice with the Yak on top of a insulated base and the draw for draft up top makes the cook a safe zone within the house. I'm glad we see the safety concerns up front, you'd be surprised how many people don't and suffer the consequences. The hearts I love but, the gizzards go to the dogs at my house. I understand the desire of some using the whole body and all the parts for ?conservation?, religious sentiments,,,,whatever, it's all good in the neighborhood. I was in your area recently and found the weather cool and rainy, so that set-up will do you well. Before I forget the end result looks great

    Shifty, shady and nefarious bettors are a specialty of mine to handle. When the time approaches all arrangements should be behind the curtain and handled quietly......to spare you the embarrassment.
  15. Experiment. Razzle Dazzzle. Make it work. Preserve and combine. A small amount but, a useful supply. Think of drying it out or is that a consideration. Good luck.
