    Nice job on the brisket. @MacKenzie - did you flatten it out to keep the block thin so you could break off pieces? I have a set of small plastic cubes with attached lids that I fill up with pesto and freeze. Similar idea to the ice cube tray, but I leave the pesto in them, so they don't get as much freezer burn having only the top layer exposed. Don't remember where I scored them?
  7. There ya go! Will be a bit of a trek from La to IN, but could be worth it.
  8. Love the new name!!! So, this is where you've been hiding all summer. Well, at least you weren't in the poky or the hospital - LOL!!

    Need to find a source for it, as I might try and grow some myself next year! Any tips on where to find seeds or live plants?

    I'd describe farofa as having that sandy texture. Kinda makes it unique and interesting from other starches. Plus, anything where the preferred cooking method is to cook it with bacon fat, is top notch in my book! Look for it also as "manioc flour."

    When to use the top grate?

    The main reason for using it, beside the real estate aspect, is if you want to utilize the radiant heat from being near the dome. As noted, pizza is the prime example, breads are another. I like to cook spatchcocked chickens up there, as both sides seem to cook evenly that way. Or, if you just want to cook direct, but want a little extra distance between the food and the fire, like for a casserole.

    Also, prepare to go buy a new belt, as the old one won't be big enough shortly!

    Have you tried frying the shiso leaves? - amazing how cooking it changes their flavor I don't have access to them here, but toss a couple in the air fryer until crispy and see what you think? I've had them in Japanese restaurants done tempura style.
