    weed is now legal in nj

    Just wait. South Dakota legalized it in a vote a while back then our bitch Governor prompted her chronies to draw up lawsuits claiming it's unconstitutional to legalize it so it got dropped. If there's anything she can't stand it's listening to the voters that are stupid enough to have voted...

    Single malts

    I'm a peat freak. Current bottles include Ardbeg Wee Beastie, Ardbeg 10, Laphroaig Quarter Cask, Laphroaig 10, And Glenlivet Nadura Peat Cask. That Glenlivet may be the most balanced and creamy scotch I've ever had the pleasure to consume. Just pure pleasure on the tongue. I can sip a single...

    Once again.... WHATS COOKING?!

    Interesting. I'll have to keep that in mind when I get around to it in the spring.

    Once again.... WHATS COOKING?!

    Aren't most smokers low temp/long cookers? The pizza ovens I've been looking at are ridiculous high temps for flash-cooking pizza and pastries. We're talking 600 F and up for most of them. Though the wood burners that use pellets can be pulled back through carefully controlling the fuel...

    Once again.... WHATS COOKING?!

    I would love to get a smoker, but this year's budget is reserved for an outdoors wood burning pizza oven, if I manage to clear a space for it out back. Maybe I smoker next year or the year after.

    GIMME ALL O DAT! That seared tuna steak looks delicious, and anybody gots a problem with slow cooked pork shoulder, or breaded chops, then they got a prollem with me and I suggest they let that marinate! / Letterkenny Weekend. Bagels: Pizza: This morning was butter biscuits for...

    WOULD!:love: A path I've long hoped to travel down and finally just threw down the gauntlet this morning. I want to make a high-density rye sourdough bread that can be used to make seasoned chips. Think the rye chips in Gardettos that are so good they had to start selling them separately...

    Once again.... WHATS COOKING?!

    Yeah. The recipe called for nearly twice as much chocolate as I put in it. That would have basically been a loosely held together ball of chocolate chunks with some extra sugar/bread as glue.

    I'm my doctor's worst nightmare. Today's batch: Sourdough shortbread chocolate chunk cookies. I'm glad I've got coworkers to foist some of these off on or my wife and I would be pouring on pounds like an Irish man pours on the whiskey.

    :lol: That does look closer to nachos than chili. Something simple to hit a craving this morning. Butter fried beef franks. Yellow mustard, ketchup and a jalapeno spiked pickle spear. Breakfast of champions!

    As much as I'm for enhancements in chili, that's a bit much. I'll typically just toss a little more blue cheese in, some hot sauce, and maybe, if I'm feeling catty, some crushed doritos. But that looks like the extras are dominating the bowl.

    That looks tasty. I find most chili benefits from a bit of dark chocolate or chocolate liquor. I'm also a fan of melting in some blue cheese in the early part of the cook.

    Sourdough caocao bean scones: Raw caocao beans give a nice fruity chocolate overtone without overpowering the creaminess of the base scone. My coworkers are thrilled. The company health nazi is not. :lol:

    Once again.... WHATS COOKING?!

    I think I'm getting the hang of this sourdough thing. I'd like a nice bread lame (dough knife) for cutting patterns, but the rest of it I'm fairly happy with. I have a full grain rye (pumpernickel) starter that just started bubbling yesterday, so I'll be producing a dark loaf in a week or two...

    These were sweet, but they had a sourdough base so it wasn't quite the normal cinnamon roll sweetness. The frosting balanced really well against the ever so slight acidity in the sourdough portion and the sugar cinnamon mix really just brought it all together.
