    Cashew and/or almond crust?

    Hi everyone, I picked up a pork tenderloin on sale and wanted to try something different. Anyone do a chashew and/or almond crust before - on a pork tenderloin or otherwise? If so, I'm assuming you chop it up fine and maybe add some other stuff to it? Or is the cashew salty enough by itself...

    I know I should have messed with the rotiserie before the day I'm going to use it, but.... Anyway, the parts look pretty straight forward, except the rolling pin looking deal. Anyone know what that's used for? Counterweight? I didn't see it in the instruction manual that came with the...

    Bacon wrapped something

    Hey everyone, I've been doing a lot of cooks lately where I wrap a boneless skinless thigh, stuffed with cheese and green onion in bacon.

    Pizza, no stone ideas?

    I wanted to throw a pizza on my performer tonight, but I don't have a pizza stone. Anyone have any ideas for a makeshift set-up? Should I use the non stick pizza pan I usually use for the oven and prop it up on something?

    Seasoning for Bacon

    I make Bob's "Bacon made easy" back around X-mas time with pork belly, and it was great! Since it was my first bacon, I thought I'd go without seasoning to see if I got the basics down. I've a got a 9# pork loin curing now and was trying to figure out some seasoning options. Could the bacon...

    So the wife & I finally tried the Bob Correll "Bacon Made Easy" that I made & sliced in late December. It was the best bacon I ever had! Thanks Bob for taking the time to share the process! However, my slicing skills left much to be desired. The slices were anything but uniform, and we were...

    I was just wondering what's favored for cutting briskets/turkey/other? I just got a Cuisinart electric knife because it was rated high on Amazon. I tried cutting the turkey yesterday and it did not cut very gracefully. It also got bits of turkey between the blades and got gummed up. I ended...
