    Guilty post!

    I felt like I needed to post something up here, as I have been cruising by (albeit not as frequently), but not sharing or commenting. Thanks to those of you who are still posting your cooks, even though this summer/Fall seem to have been a bit less populated around here (it will pick up again, I'm sure of it!) Anyway, I haven't been grilling much, but did light some charcoal tonight, so figured I should snap a few pics.

    First, still baking....:



    Got a bird ready to spin:



    Neighbor dropped by some tomatoes:


    Out of the heat:



    On the plate (wow, really went for the orange theme tonight!):



    Flavors were good, but I'll be darned if this wasn't the toughest bird I've ever cooked! I took the breast to 160, and the texture was like rubber, even though it was juicy. Weird. Oh well, was good to play with some fire, and bust out the rotisserie for a change.

    Keep cookin', y'all!

    Well Rich, it sure LOOKS good. But I'm pretty sure that bread tasted great in any case!

    Beautiful bird and plate. You should feel guilty more often.

    Have found that rotisserie chickens can take a lot of heat and are usually better for it.
    Am not afraid to take them to where the breasts measure 180* and the thighs over 200*.

    Absolutely gorgeous cook Rich. Sorry you were disappointed with the tenderness. Beautiful loaf too. Great job with the scoring. Is that one of your Semolina loaves?

    Thanks, Len. I'll find a use for the chicken, and the bread will be gone by lunch.

    Thanks, Pat. All my pics are taken with my iPhone X, it's a pretty great little camera! I sometimes do a little post processing, but usually not much.

    I'm pretty sure there was no saving this one, Pat. The breasts were like thick shoe soles!

    Cliff, yes. Pretty similar to the formula I sent you the other day, only adjusted to use my starter at 20% of the flour. I've had much more consistent bloom and oven spring since you sent me some of your starter!

    Great grub, Rich!

    I'm as guilty as you are. Weather cooling here, starting to think about baking bread again.
