  1. Post-Thanksgiving burn-out Pork Chop dinner. A nice, thick Iowa chop, direct, main grate, apple wood chunks, 350F. Rub was a chipotle based one. First time using it. Not bad. Sides of melting potatoes and steamed broccoli.
  2. One of my "go to" spice stores, The Spice House, up in Milwaukee, has the white truffle salt. @Tyrus - hope you're right about it being dynamite on a lot of stuff, seeing as a 3 oz jar was $27! Another choice is truffle butter and oil from D'Artagnan - both black and white.
  3. As you are probably keenly aware by now, how do you know when your contractor is lying to you? Their lips are moving! I've had similar problems on remodeling projects and fired folks - as you said, usually for non-performance. But, when it's all said and done, it's nice to enjoy it.
  4. I've just discovered these folks up in Napa - Trefethen. They make a lovely dry Riesling. I visited them this past September and joined their wine club.
  5. Yes, and a bit of arsenic, too (the actual seed inside the pit). But, from what I read, the cyanide is trace amounts and in a chemical form that reacts with enzymes in your GI tract to convert to actual cyanide. So, my guess is that it would be OK to burn them and not worry about contaminating your food.
  6. I have a pair of these and they are great for handling meats off the grill. AmazonSmile : RAPICCA BBQ Gloves 14 Inches, 932℉, Heat Resistant-Smoker, Grill, Cooking Barbecue Gloves, for Handling Heat Food Right on Your Fryer, Grill, Oven. Waterproof, Fireproof, Oil Resistant Neoprene Coating : Garden & Outdoor They also make some nice welder type glove (don't own these, but they look good). RAPICCA 16 Inches, 662℉, Leather Forge/Mig/Stick Welding Gloves Heat/Fire Resistant, Mitts for Oven/Grill/Fireplace/Furnace/Stove/Pot Holder/Tig Welder/Mig/BBQ/Animal handling glove with 1
  7. Mine came early today. Started right in on it. Wonderfully written (so far). Only complaint is that the type size is damn small! Even with my readers on, I have to hold it pretty close to read it. Would be glad to ship you some Anson Mills grits and Carolina Gold rice. They are Excellent!
  8. @Tyrus - what's your source for the truffle salt? I have both white and black truffle oils in my pantry. But, this sounds like a "must have."
  9. Last dinner of leftovers!! Either eaten or tossed, except for a piece of turkey breast. Tomorrow night - PORK!!
