    Picanha wasn't the star

    ...I roti'd some picanha this evening, which turned out really good..... I tried out something new (for me), though, that kind of stole the show......potstickers! Made the dough as outlined in THIS RECIPE. I used my pasta roller to roll out the dough, then cut out circles with a container I...

    Sometimes, ya gotta YAK!

    Last time I made yakitori was four months ago.....TOO LONG! I just love making this one.....easy, tasty, and reminds me of the "chicken skewers" I devoured at every local Arts and Wine festival I went to in my 20's! :) I had four skinless, boneless thighs leftover from my shopping excursion...

    My Nephew Requested Pizza (go figure!)

    I'll let y'all tell me when to stop!! :) Same dough, did the full 1 hour preheat at 400° this time, and I think I still need a slightly longer preheat. Four pies, and the last one was the best cooked pie...... The new combination was a "Spanish" pizza with chorizo (Spanish, not Mexican)...

    Kettle Pizza Bread

    I did this a couple of years ago on a particularly hot day (POSTED HERE), and with the recent heat here, I used this setup to bake my weekly bread batch again. Pretty much the same setup..... Step one, roll out ol' Red and get some briqs going Once those were lit, they were dumped over about...

    FD: Fettuccine w/Pesto & Grilled Shrimp

    Like a lot of folks here, I actually relish the opportunity to cook dinner on Father's Day (well, pretty much any day, but especially on days when the "d" is a capital "D"!) :) It wouldn't be atypical for me to do a tri tip, or some other cut of beef, but since I made up the picanha a couple...

    Picanha (Duane and Brett made me do it!)

    I couldn't resist pulling out a picanha from the freezer after seeing the meals that @DuaneMac and @Brett-EDH shared. This slab of meat came from my CostCo two-pack that I found the other day (it was labeled as a Sirloin Top cap, and came in a cryovac package.) As is customary in Brazil, I...

    More Pies in the GMG Oven!

    My daughter returned from her HS graduation trip on a redeye that arrived this am. Yesterday I had decided that we'd do a pizza dinner to welcome her home. I prepped 3 dough balls of my usual dough (AP/00 mix), balled it up after ~3 hours of room temp rise, then into the fridge until this...

    Mu Shu Chicken (C-)

    Ok, we've had some discussion in a few threads recently about how things don't always turn out the way you planned. Tonight was one of those nights for me, as I tried to make Mu Shu Chicken for the first time. I have some good thoughts about what I can change, do differently, or just about why...

    Some Post-Smoke Day Spares

    Been quite a while since I fixed up any ribs, so I figured Memorial Day, and just after Smoke Day was as good a reason as any! :) Wild Fork Foods was out of St. Louis trimmed spares when I was shopping, so I go the full spares and trimmed them myself. Going to be using my neighbor's rib method...

    Cranked out some sausage!

    Not sure this counts for Smoke Day, but I've got some ribs teed up for Monday..... :) Did 5lb batches of snack sticks, breakfast links, and Spanish-style chorizo..... I copied @Lew Newby's setup for snack sticks in his Smokefire. Went with about 4 hours of smoke, then a quick 170° poach to...

    Got a new wok!

    My wonderful sister got me a carbon steel wok (Yosukata) for my birthday, and I finally got a chance to get a few coats of seasoning on it so I could put it to use! My wife asked if I would make a healthy stir fry tonight, so what better time?!?! :) Ingredients: 2x chicken breasts...

    Some Jalapeno Cheese Brats - Fresh

    These will eventually hit the grill, so I think they count? :) I'd been thinking about making a batch of sausage for a few weeks now, and the video that @Dustin Dorsey posted pushed me over the edge. These will mostly get eaten at a gathering tomorrow, so I didn't really have time to do a...

    Because.....bacon!

    Been a while since I made up a batch of bacon! Grabbed a belly at CostCo: Used the Diggin Dog Farms cure calculator to figure out some ingredients (after cutting the belly in half) Bagged 'em up with the cure Into the fridge for 8 days, flipping every morning (when I remembered), then...

    Stuffed Chicken a la Dwain

    @Dwain Pannell, posted up a stuffed chicken cook the other day that looked out of this world good, so I decided I needed to recreate it. I had a Wild Fork chicken on hand, and hustled off to YouTube to look for some guidance on de-boning a chicken......got that done, but had to wait for my...

    Some lunch flappers

    Was going to have these for dinner, but decided to whip them up for lunch instead. Mixed up a batch of Chipotle Dry Rub, mixed them up with the wings and some olive oil for about an hour..... Used the Summit Platinum to cook them up. 5 minutes each side, direct on Med/Low, then 20 minutes...

    Bread in the GMG Pizza Oven

    I wanted to try my new GMG Pizza Oven to bake my weekly bread. I set up my pellet grill with just the diffuser in place (sideways), and my GMG oven set up on the right side of the grill. For those of you following the GMG thread for pizza, you'll note that this means that the "intake" is NOT...

    Summer of Pizza?

    I think I mentioned that my pizzas I've done recently in the new GMG Pizza Oven on my pellet grill were test runs for when we had guests in town? :) A little back story....... The family visiting us are like an extension of our own family. My wife grew up with her friend, and they stayed...
