    This is what I was planning for Labor day weekend: chicken quarters and a Tri-Tip steak.
    Bought chicken quarters last Wednesday and brined them (with injection) using Pop's brine till Saturday. SV-ed them for three and a half ours at 160F. Out of SV. Added some fresh minced garlic and some granulated onion right under the skin and in smoker at 245F for two hours. During last hour glazed them with Jeff's BBQ sauce...
    Very tender and juicy quarters... Happy with the result:

    While waiting for chicken quarters to be done cooked some Pepper Thai paste:
    Just Chili Thai Peppers (two kinds of them), a lot of garlic, some salt and a little of vinegar and olive oil. Through food processor and then cooked it on the pan for 10 min and in a jars.
    Liked it a lot: just peppers and garlic taste. No one but me can handle this stuff.... I has enough of heat..

    Now it's Sunday and the dinner was on my list as well:
    Bought trimmed Tri-Tip, in the vacuum bag and SV-ed both pieces for 24 hours, starting Saturday... I am sorry I don't have too many picks on preparation - only the end result.
    Closer to the end of SV cooking, deep fried some potatoes wages:

    Oh yeah!. This is 3 posts worth. First off, the chicken looks scrumptious. Second, the Thai pepper paste. I've always smoked and dehydrated them then ground them up. I will try your version this fall. question though, do you de-stem them or grind them as in the picture? And finally those TriTips look perfect. I look the bark on it!

    Thanks, drdon! I don't de-steam them or grind them - just use a food processor.... then cooked them of a fry pan for 10 min.... that all. Keep them in jars till they all gone... :emoji_blush:

    That all looks so good, nice cooking.
    I'm imagining that sauce on the Tri-tip and taters, that'd be really good.
    Very nice, it has me salivating, sure am glad my dinner is almost ready.

    That all looks great but to be honest I'm curious how hot that Chile Thai sauce is but those chilies look so good? The really nice color on that chicken was pure BBQ. Very nice.

    Ha! You are so right! Just 1/3 of a teaspoon of this stuff is enough to keep your mouth on fire for 30-40 min.... :emoji_laughing:
