Re: What's on your Agenda this Weekend?

I smoked the 3 little turkey boobettes Saturday, and they were fantastic. Hit them with a spicy Cajun rub. Cubed two of them for salads next week (and froze some) and sliced the other one thin for sammies. Also smoked some Cajun shrimps for Cobbs [more]

Big Smoke

Ok, so I'm going to do a lot of decklaxin' this weekend, which means firing up the smoker.

Saturday I'm going to smoke a few pounds of shrimp. Most of that will go towards smoked shrimp Cobb salads with cilantro cream dressing.

I'm [more]

That and she'd also have to bring/rent a canoe.

No kidding. We might break 15" of rain for the month. We're getting close. We got another 1" at the house yesterday (that won't go into the official numbers since of course it [more]

Re: Indianaplois

There is a S-n-S near your hotel. I think they've gone way downhill in the last few years. The portions are smaller that's for sure and the restaurants down seem as well kept, at least around here. Unfortunate because they did have great [more]

Re: Indianaplois

From the convention center you'll find just about anything you can ever want. There should also be a few cluster trucks (big food truck gatherings) for GenCon. They post their schedules on Tuesdays. Last year they were very popular at GenCon, so [more]

Re: Brining question (science-y)

*no physics in that course schedule?*

I took physics 3 times also. Now, in my defense, I got a 4.0 in all of the computer programming curriculum. And I went 'all the way' in math, though definitely NOT with a 4.0.

Re: Indianaplois

LOL great idea normally, but I have been out of town a lot lately and the food pickin's are mighty slim. Sad, really. Gotta get my game face back on.

Re: Brining question (science-y)

I had to take Chemistry 101 3 times in college, therefore I feel I am more than qualified to answer this question.

Why does brining work?

Re: Indianaplois

Awesome. Hope you enjoy our city. Well, the city. It's nice and hot and humid now thanks to almost 14" of rain so far this month (a record).

What side of town will you be on? And food preferences?

Re: Lunch

I smoked some 1/2" thick bologna slices yesterday, so we had that on buns with Vidalia onion and mustard. Southwestern mac-and-cheese (w/tomato and black beans and cilantro) on the side. We were out of town most of the day, so that was all I [more]

Re: Poll: A little, a lot, and just enough...

Sorry if my answers didn't make sense Bob. My intent was to see if people tend to over-charcoal. I do. I use about double what you do for grilling, and do exactly what you do for the WSM. I completely fill the ring and then add a full chimney. [more]

Re: Is bigger better?

Yep, but thankfully I will only teach science next year, so I will only be able to calculate density and molarity starting in August.

I'm sure you'll blind them with science.
