@tekobo - I'm sure that your cider will be just fine. Nice tip on using the lees to marinate meats. I'll try and remember that the next time I make a batch of cider (been on my "to do" list for a couple of months now.) Sound very similar to the Japanese Shio Koji marinade that I've fallen in love with, very similar to your sake lees.

@tekobo, did you get/make a new trompo? Looks like cast iron.

Nope.  Just used my Lodge pan (KK shopping channel via @RokDok) and skewer.  Cleaned up nice with a soak in Fairy liquid overnight.


@tony b yes, lees are good for marinading.  I too love shio koji and use it raw on food as well as a marinade.  Lees give a stronger, funkier flavour.  All good.

That’s a beautiful meal 👍

Dads 70th birthday & retirement celebration in one night. This is what he requested. I obliged. His birthday is 12/31 but we had to reschedule due to COVID exposures (thankfully nobody got it, but waiting to get tested)

Nicely done on both cooks! Congrats on your Dad's 70th! 

I did a Prime Top Round roast that I found "buried" in the downstairs freezer. Indirect, with Guru at 250F, smoker pot of mesquite and post oak. Cooked to 195F. Wrapped in butcher paper slathered with Wagyu beef tallow at 170F. Took a bit longer than I had anticipated (an extra hour), but I was happy with the outcome - crazy smoke ring! Plated with sous vide mashed potatoes with gravy made with the shallot crack sauce (awesome!) and some "roasted" corn (LOL - I over did it a bit and the paprika got really dark!)

Marinated (lawrys salt & brown sugar) Pork tenderloin grilled Indirect at 350 with some apple wood. Finished in the cast iron pan with some Irish butter 

crispy baby potatoes. Booked them in water with baking soda and kosher salt for 10 minutes. Tossed them in a bowl with duck fat, truffle salt, garlic powder & black pepper. Threw them in the air fryer and then finished them by tossing them in olive oil and a ton of fresh thyme. Turned out super tasty 

grilled asaoargus cooked in cast iron pan after pork, dusted with olive oil, salt, black pepper and garlic powder before getting tossed in the pan.

Looks like it would glow in the dark

Toney might of been using a black light, you know how they work...very suspicious, but mesmerizing nevertheless.
