    Using a brine to Vortex chicken wings on a Weber Kettle...

    Wings, grill or wsm?

    I cook a lot of wings and do them both ways. Like others when using the WSM take out the water pan for high direct/indirect cooking. Get it hot enough to crisp them up. On grill: go indirect then sauce at end then direct to get them to your crispy liking

    Gator Country

    The gator turned out delicious. I've had gator bites before, but the frying kind of masks the meat. The texture was tender, more like a firm fish. Flavor was similar to chicken. i also made a remoulade sauce for dipping, which gave people an alternative to eating it straight. The amount of...

    thinking about getting a new TV

    I recently purchased the Sony XBR-65X850D on sale at Best Buy. After doing the research (and with an eye to the future 4k) it was IMO the best buy for the buck. I have been very happy with it and if it lasts as long as my other Sony TVs, should be in business for many years to come.
