… I really enjoy it. Come at me, Bro :poke:

I'm also pretty good at it. I suck at certain things (baking [f#$% that], deserts [couldn't care less]) but almost everything else is in play. I only mention that to discuss this; a "Chili Cook-Off" where I work in about 3 weeks. I'm thinking about entering. Chili is not necessarily my specialty, but I can bust that shit out, if needed. There will be 4 categories; mild, medium, hot and super-hot. Crazy hot salsa IS one of my specialties, so I'm immediately interested in the super-hot category. But, common-sense says that you can't win with a super-hot recipe (there's one winner - not one winner per category). The number of people that actually enjoy super-hot (I'm talking Trinidad Scorps, Reapers, etc.) is really small. But it would also be enjoyable to hurt some people :D

What say you R/Ters? Should I enter? Should I resist the urge to hurt people and shoot for something with heat, but not quite "Dragon's Breath" level? I'd kind of like to win for the bragging rights. Yup, I'm shallow that way LOL

I used to watch a lot of cooking shows, I think I've seen every Good Eats episode twice. But I can't take very much Gordon Ramsay.

I avoid that dude. He's good by himself, but an arrogant prick on the other shows...

You fat bastards! I hate cooking because I hate to clean up. Folding laundry is another horrible event.

I will eat that shit you cook though, Food is good :D Don't burn them up. Go for the medium or hot with a great flavored heat. It's not about the heat. It's about the flavor of the heat. I have had some smokin hot shit but it still tasted great! That's where the knack lies.

Same here, Dan.

Ironic, 'cause I've been vegan for 35 years (only way I could deal with heavy-metal poisoning - had to seriously clean up my act).

I love Andrew Zimmern's "Bizarre Foods" where he travels the globe and samples everything. I'm a sucker for Adam Richman's shows too, and anything BBQ. I have every English-translated Iron Chef episode (original Japanese series) on hard drive. 230 odd eps IIRC, and I've watched them all at least 4 times!

Always felt weird about my love for cooking shows 'cause nobody I know's into them, but knowing you guys dig 'em too is empowering! :rock:

Dinner just ain't the same without some good-lookin', tasty treats on the TV. Helps the friggin' rabbit food go down.

I am a fan of Diners Drive inn and Dives.
That’s my whole Friday night.
Just whipped up this super loaded omelet last night
Better then any I bought at any restaurant.
Not really cooking. But just sharing. :lol: :LOL:

I made about 2 gallons of Chicken and Noodles (oven-roasted chicken, egg noodles) on Sunday that we'll be having tonight. I let it cook until the noodles were about 80% done knowing that we wouldn't eat it until mid-week. I'll let it simmer for an hour or so this evening while making the mashed potatoes. Grabbing a couple baguettes of bread from the store on the way home to top it off. :thumbsup:

Damn that sounds good. Last soup I made was bean soup.
Make it 2 ways. One is pressure cooker.
Other is just slow simmer open kettle.
Both turn out great. But little slightly different.

I love cooking, but not spicy. Split Pea soup, lentils, chick peas, kidney beans, pintos, minestrone etc...

LOVE making pot roast or beef stew in the cold weather !

Yes, but it's "Trailer Park Lasagna" :lol: :LOL: . I make it the way I like it; it's not a traditional lasagna (not a big fan of Ricotta Cheese). Layers of seasoned ground beef, lasagna noodles, homemade sauce and a mixture of shredded Mozzarella and fresh-grated Parmigiano/Reggiano...

Ricotta and Cottage Cheeses are common. I'm just not a big fan of either. Too pasty. Cheese should be golden brown and bubbly...

Do it man! I won a chili cook off once. Also gave the recipe to a friend and they took second place at a chili cook off.

I use rib-eye steak, smoke it for 30mins to an hour. Chop the meat up toss it into whatever chili base you come up with. Here's the secret, take all the fat trimmings, and the bones toss them in a pan, and render that fat down into a liquid, pour it in to your chili. Don't forget to deglaze the pan with beer and pour that in too.

Also I substitute any water with beer, or a combo of beer and beef broth.


Good luck with yours!

Ha, that's the way my Mom made it so to me that's the way it's supposed to be. And I don't even like cottage cheese.

But TBH, frozen Lasagna can be pretty damn good.

Ya we bought a large frozen lasagna and it was good.
But I started looking at it. Thinking....
Man I could do this. Maybe better!! :lol: :LOL:
Did some grilled pork (left over from the grill)
Cut them into small squares. Put em in a pan with sliced onions and jalapeños
Man it turned out good. Since it was already cooked I just placed a lid over it.
Let it sorta steam/simmer for about 20 minutes.
:thumbsup:

Anyone heard Steven Slate's Thanksgiving turkey recipe?

Wrap large turkey in bacon.
Place in oven and roast 'til bacon's crispy.
Remove turkey from oven, unwrap bacon and throw turkey away. :lol: :LOL:

Take two hot dogs, wrap in bacon, place in baking dish. Take two pieces of Banquet Chicken and put them in baking dish and cover it all with foil.

Remove hot dogs after 30 minutes of baking at 350 degrees. Leave chicken in oven another 20 minutes.

As a follow-up, the Chili Cook-off was yesterday. I had decided not to enter but they were trying to drum up support to raise money (proceeds were donated), so I relented and signed-up. For heat and flavor, my chili had: (2) Bhut Jolokia, (1) Carolina Reaper, (2) Jalapeno, (3) Anaheim and (3) Poblano peppers. I sautéed the peppers with a massive Vidalia onion in bacon grease and butter. For meat, I used 1 lb. of Sirloin, 1 lb. of mild Italian sausage and 2 lbs. of ground chuck. Plus tomato paste, tomato sauce, spices, etc. Others classified there chili as hot - mine was the hottest, but it could have been worse. I intentionally dumbed it down for the masses. I came in second place. The guy that won had "chili" that looked and tasted like Sloppy Joe's. Exactly like Sloppy Joe's. Sloppy Joe is NOT chili. But it tastes good, and people like it, so they voted for it.

TL;DR version. I entered. I came in second. I should have won :lol: :LOL:

FWIW, you would've gotten my vote. Sounds like a nice combination of flavor and heat. And while I love Sloppy Joe's, you're right... that ain't chili. :lol: :LOL:

For heat and flavor, my chili had: (2) Bhut Jolokia, (1) Carolina Reaper, (2) Jalapeno, (3) Anaheim and (3) Poblano peppers. I sautéed the peppers with a massive Vidalia onion in bacon grease and butter. For meat, I used 1 lb. of Sirloin, 1 lb. of mild Italian sausage and 2 lbs. of ground chuck. Plus tomato paste, tomato sauce, spices, etc. Others classified there chili as hot - mine was the hottest, but it could have been worse. I intentionally dumbed it down for the masses. I came in second place. The guy that won had "chili" that looked and tasted like Sloppy Joe's. Exactly like Sloppy Joe's. Sloppy Joe is NOT chili. But it tastes good, and people like it, so they voted for it.

TL;DR version. I entered. I came in second. I should have won :lol: :LOL:


Damn, that chili recipe.......

:thumbsup:

My grandma came from Yugoslavia.
When growing up I remember as kids she would make us all this.
Fry a pound of bacon. Till it’s super crunchy.
Then boil a pound of elbow macaroni.
Add in tomato juice. Then stir in the bacon and the grease all.
Spice it up with black pepper and garlic salt.
Probably not the healthiest. :lol: :LOL:
But damn is it good. :yes:
Sorta like goulash. :D

Yeah, I've had stuff like that. Not sure what it's called exactly, goulash is close enough, but damn... it's freakin' great!

Fond memories. Eating that as a kid and playing crazy 8 cards with my grams. :thumbsup:

It would've been nothing without the bacon, of course.

Such a magic ingredient.

Exactly. You would be surprised how much flavor that bacon and grease adds.
