  1. Looking forward to seeing your efforts @Syzygies
  2. I like the show Top Chef and it’s really the thing that pushed me to start trying to elevate my cooking. I binged watched the first 2 seasons over a couple days while staying with my then girlfriends family in South Africa back in 2008 and from that long on I’ve watched every season and it’s always inspired me to try new recipes or learn mew techniques at home one of my favorite chefs all time from that show was Gregory who does a lot of southeast Asian style healthy cooking. He just released his first cookbook and i received my copy the other day abs holy smokes am I excited. It could b
  3. Still had leftover tortillas from Cinco de Mayo so I made Brisket tacos for dinner with cotija cheese & homemade BBQ sauce
  4. 21 hour smoked brisket with mesquite wood. Sweet corn on the cob and fingerling potatoes with truffle salt, olive oil, rosemary, thyme and black pepper no plated pics but here’s the rest also made some bbq sauce using @Syzygiesbourbon recipe. I don’t normally do BBQ sauce on my brisket but I wanted to try a run before my whole pig cook in a few weeks. Sauce was tasty, could’ve been a bit thicker but I probably should’ve started it an hour earlier. Curious to try it again after it’s been in the fridge a few hours, I really want to develop my own signature BBQ sauce for pulled pork
  5. I finally watched that whole MasterClass. Thanks for sharing. I am extremely jealous of you @Basher and your grill.
  6. Whether you use a Trompo King or not it’s just great to cook vertical meat stacks. Glad to see so much enthusiasm on this topic @tony b what do you use when you smoke a brisket if you’re not using the double drip pan?

    @tekobo it should be noted that my wife’s name is Kusi, which in the native language of Peru is Quechuan and means “happiness”. When you meet my wife you will see that she personifies her namesakes. So since I redid my yard last year but wasn’t able to share it with our friends, I started calling our house “club Kusi” last summer as I posted pics of the pool and the food that was being produced from my KK. I’ve gotten a lot of grief /ribbing from my family and friends about how serious I take my BBQ/grilling over the past year and this year I finally get to share that with them. So hence the
  8. @Donoi live 6 miles from the Mexican border and the market I go to has pre marinated carne asada and fresh tortillas so I usually just pick up from them
  9. Nice job @tony b glad you got to have company over. Rolling out the red carpet by the looks of it Happy Cinco de Mayo all. Tonight we did the staple carne asada tacos with guacamole and a margarita. One thing to note for those keeping score at home is if you want to do truly world class carne asada one must use arrachera cut of meat which is skirt steak. They sell this at the Mexican market by my house for $11.99/lb vs the “other” marinated carne asada which I think is a rump cut of some kind and it’s $4.99/lb tonight in honor of Cinco de Mayo we went with the arrachera and man you

    @tekoboyou are welcome to listen, although I’m not sure you’ll like it or not. I have a very wide and eclectic taste in music and for this event seeing that I never got to really have a pool party or share our backyard with our friends last year I’m going for the “upscale hotel pool” vibe but obviously we’ll all be with our kids. So it’s all DJ music that is from the Ibiza/Mediterranean beach vibes. I put it on shuffle and let it play. It’s a celebratory playlist designed to celebrate the light at the end of the tunnel after a long year in isolation https://open.spotify.com/playlist/4S9o
  11. Congratulations @Forrest what’s gonna be the first thing you grill? Did you get rid of your Kamdoe Joe or are you keeping it?
  12. Open faced breakfast sandwhich on sourdough (for the wife) and white bread for me. Over easy egg with truffle salt, black pepper and fresh thyme. Melted cheddar cheese, applewood smoked bacon, arugula, avocado with suracha sauce
  13. @Basher well cooked. How was the taste? Did the lamb absorb the marinade well? How long did you marinate it for?
