    Food for Thought: Grilled Salmon with Balsamic Maple Pear Reduction, and Cabbage Faux Gratin

    In our quest to eat healthier, one of the things we hear most often is to cut back on "red meat" and add more poultry and seafood to our diet.  Salmon is considered to be a "Power Food" by most nutritionists.  It is loaded with Omega 3's and healthy oils that are supposed to help lower...

    Food for Thought: Putting YAWYE into Practice

    OK, I thought I would start a thread here with actual dishes made with the idea that we can have delicious fare and still watch fat, cholesterol, and (for those on Weight Watchers like me) total point values. As a prologue to this dish, let me explain that we have a long-standing tradition of...

    WHY?

    OK, not to be a party-pooper, but how is THIS group different from the SMOKING BACON forum in the main section? It seems  redundant and divisive. I would think that splitting the attention of "bacon" between two distinct places makes for a less-productive board.  Especially since this is a...

    Why?

    OK, not to be a party-pooper, but how is THIS sausage group different from the Sausage forum in the main section? It seems  redundant and divisive.

    Pizza Fattie with Q-Vue

    Up until now all the fatties I have made have been of the "breakfast" variety (with maple sausage, bacon, etc.) and today I wanted to try something different. I've seen a number of posts about Pizza fatties so I thought I would try my hand at making one for dinner. Started with some of my...

    Maple Bacon and Cheesy Hash Brown Fattie (w/Q-Vue)

    Homegrown sawdust for AMNS?

    Sorry if this is a taboo subject. I tend to make a LOT of sawdust with my other hobby.  So I was wondering if anyone has had any experience using their own sawdust mix in their AMNS. I figure between the bandsaw, tablesaw, planer and lathe, I probably fill up a 30-gallon trash can every month...

    Coffee Marinated Salmon with Smoked Apple Salad

    This is one of my favorite salmon recipes.  Long story short we've been tailgating at every Tampa Bay Bucs home game for the last 15 years.  Every Tailgate is "themed" based on the opponent.  So, for instance if we play the Giants we might make NY Strips, or a NY- style cheesecake, or a pitcher...
