Unfortunately, my "go-to" guy closed his deli/meat market today. His sausage business (another location) will be closing at the end to October. Classic pandemic trifecta: Delivery costs (Chomp, Door Dash, Uber Eats, etc.) cutting into slim margins, skyrocketing meat prices this summer, and hard to get/retain employees. Sad days indeed! 😢

Apparently I did not eat enough Mexican food last week although to be fair I did not have one carne asada taco…..my wife had family in from Peru today so I made carne asada tacos. Flour tortillas, salsa rojo, salsa verde, guacamole, refried beans, cotija cheese and homemade marinated carne cooked over mesquite wood

That looks superb Troble. I just flicked through the thread while I ate my lunch - a roast beef sandwich. Never has a roast beef suffered from such feelings of inadequacy. Also, why am I hungry all over again?

Pizza again. Typical kitchen sink style, 500° KK dome, 485° baking steel, 6 - 6.5 minutes. Per previous comment, note deflector(!) in use under the baking steel on upper grate.

Surf & Turf night. Seafood truck came to town and I loaded up on fresh shrimp. Surf = bacon wrapped shrimp with cajun seasoning & a slather of sauce. Turf = Denver steak with Dizzy Pig Raising the Steaks. Direct, lower grate, mesquite wood chunks. The "washed out blob" in the pic is the slice of rustic Italian bread from the local bakery - one of my favs!

Plated with a nice baked spud, shrooms, and side salad. Decent Beaujolais to wash it all down with.

Smoked a chicken on the Komodo kamado with lump and apple wood and roasted fingerling taters in the drip pan.

It was the first time i used the cold smoker and it worked well. Filled it about 2/3 full of loose apple wood chips and it pumped smoke for a bit more than an hour. Tighter packing and filling it should get me more time but I'll need to figure out how tight the chips can be without the fire going out

In my ongoing quest to tick off each major type of KK cooking- tonight was time to spin the first chickens. Thanks @Troble for the excellent recipe... Not able to source the proper chilis here in Melbourne at present, but we made do. Enjoyed a barrel-aged Firestone Walker (recently acquired a mixed 24-pack of historical releases from those guys)- happy days!

Well there was another birthday in the family yesterday so the request from my sister was for chicken and a loaf of sourdough.  The chicken was done at 400 indirect for an hour. They were good size birds, 5.5 and 7 pounds.

I can’t take credit for the cupcakes. There is a local place that makes those just fine without my help lol
