    Would you buy this WSM 18.5" for $150.00 Need opinions

    Get it, that little bit of rust on the vent can be sanded and oiled and the grates can be replaced pretty cheap other than that it looks good. The outside of it was either cleaned really good or this thing was hardly used.

    Should I "season" my brand new Weber Smokey Mountain Cooker?

    Most owners will tell you the best way to season that thing is with a couple of big ol butts. They have been known to run a tad hot the first few cooks, it took mine the better part of the Summer to get enough build up on the walls to make the temp control unbelievably easy. What size did you...

    Question about refridgerated storage

    Chef, first off thanks for that little rule of thumb, it had crossed my mind to just do it and get it over with but for some anal reason I thought maybe leaving little bits the way I did would some how help enhance the flavor before blending, yeh I know pretty goofy huh, it's still the same...

    Question about refridgerated storage

    Craig --- I like the simplicity of that procedure, This is a fermentation process isn't it and it doesn't require some form of starter. Considering the amount of salt used it it really salty tasting or does it mellow out some? Will I know if my hot sauce has crossed over to the dark side before...

    Question about refridgerated storage

    Thanks a million for all your input, I do realize the importance of properly canned and preserved foods and I probably will invest more on getting the proper equipment but I really wanted to find a good recipe for hot sauce before I do that's why I was trying to find out as much as I could about...

    Question about refridgerated storage

    Thats why I'm asking questions, one article I read said if you're using a vinegar based solution as part of your preserving process that a hot bath would probably be alright. Heck I've read some articles that mention just using salt and vinegar and leaving everything sit on a counter but at...

    Question about refridgerated storage

    Thanks, so am I on the right track though for short term storage of small batches of sauce, I'm hoping to get the rest of the stuff for hot water bathing but because I depend on the generousity of others for my veggies and stuff I don't want to go over board if I can keep it simple

    Question about refridgerated storage

    Craig... the recipe itself is somewhat mine ,it's based on other recipes I've read as for the actual instructions for preserving, they are from various sources such as hot pepper sites and other related forums which most have stated that short term storage in the refridgerator for a few months...

    Question about refridgerated storage

    so I've been doing a lot of reading about making and storing hot sauce and all of the canning and preserving process involved, so much that it makes me blury eyed sometimes, but they all seem to be involved with really long term storage like a year or longer so I was wondering if I want to keep...

    Habanero Sauce

    I agree as well about leaving in the seeds and membranes that is where the heat is. You could look for a habanero extract which can be right costly or try making your own which seems time consuming and uses a lot of peppers to make a small batch but the result will be pure heat in a small dose.
