Team theqjoint.com entered their second competition last Friday and had a pretty good showing. I'm posting this in the beef forum because WE TOOK FIRST PLACE IN BRISKET
Not a bad overall showing either. 15th overall in a field of 49.
We scored respectable in ribs and chicken, but poorly in...
Remove wing tip sections and tail
Cut down side of backbone
Be careful to separate the oysters from both sides and leave attached to the thigh meat
Expose and separate the thigh joint
Work knife down the thigh bone to separate meat from bone. When you reach the "knee joint" cut the meat...
Ever increasing in popularity is the famous Turducken, or as the Cajuns call it "Meat Three Ways". For those not familiar with it, it is basically a boneless chicken stuffed inside a boneless duck, stuffed inside a boneless turkey usually with some cornbread, meat or rice stuffing to fill it...
I have lots of recipes that call for pancetta. I almost aways substitute bacon because I (@ the risk of sounding tight) just have trouble paying $6 for 4 oz. of unsmoked bacon. We are short on Italian grocery stores in tulsa (though vey long on Mexican and Asian), so the little corner deli is...
Had to try out the new Hastybake Friday. The Okette calls it our "baby grill".
I thought I'd do a stuffed boneless chicken. I didn't think about taking pix until after I boned the bird and it occurred to me that some of you might be interested in a visual play by play of that process. All I...
Picked this up @ a yard sale Friday for $50. Is anybosy familiar with them?
I thought it was a heckuva score based on this.
Hop on over to the poultry forum to see what I did with it Friday night.
The Okette's employer was good enough to give us a New Years turkey back in January( they can't give anything Christmas anymore, it might offend some people )
It was starting to get in the way of my pig meat storage, so I just took it out and smoked it.
I used fresh cut rosemary, marjoram...
The Okette and I tested out the Peculiar Apple Butter Q sauce that I posted the other day . We tried it out on some direct/indirect/direct yardbird. It was better than we imagined it would be. I don't think we'll need to be buying any more Sweet Baby Ray's. Here's a pic just in time for...
I fired up Lucille yesterday to do some hickory spares, then something came up and I got distracted .
To make a long story short, it got late, I threw on some balogna and sausge, ate that for dinner and pulled the ribs off with about 1 1/2 hours cooking time lacking.
It's one thing to reheat...
During a recent visit Peculiar Mike pondered making a Q sauce based on his outta site home made apple butter. We had the time and the kitchen, but non of the wunnerful apple butter. Well, you'll never guess what showed up on my doorstep last night from the mailman, 2 qts. of the delicious...
I don't know if "Events" is the proper forum for this, but the christening was an event, so here I go.
The event was sucessful in that we settled on a name for the smoker, "Lucille", but even maore successful in that it brought some great people together for some great food, some great stories...
A couple weeks ago, while visiting one of the many newly opened Mercaditos in Tulsa's "little Mexico", I came across this brand of charcoal. Old Mexico Mezquite Charcoal--Carbon Vegetal.
Is anyone familiar with it?
I used it and loved it. Not much spark, long burning, big chunks. Where all...
I love beef rib eye! I'm having trouble deciding which form I like best, grilled rib eye steak, grilled steak over hardwood flame, smoked boneless rib eye, or smoked bone in standing rib roast.
Which do ya'all like best?
We get older, we get confused more easily . Pick your date please. I just realized that you can have multiple choice in the poll. If everyone votes first and second choice, we can just take the poll winner as the wknd.
A fresh heirloom tomato is a work of art to me. We've been picking, slicing, and eating a lot lately, so I took some pix to share with all you other tomato lovers. (I know you're out there).
Hope you enjoy.
So the ball is in my court now, as Mike so ably put it.
Let me poll those of you that want to make it down. Next weekend is probably too short of notice.
I don't have anything going on the following weekend or the weekend after that.
Then there's always the thought of waiting till...
