That doesn't look very BBQ-ish. It's got no color. This is what I look for:

I wasn't very clear about seperating the first paragraph about BBQ with my picture from Disney which is not BBQ but just a signature meal in the Magic Kingdom.

Ah, that makes a lot more sense.

Coming from Texas I never got the Eastern US BBQ scene. Drowning it in vinegar and chopping it into slurry never really made much sense to me. Kev's people do it pretty well, but I was never as much of a rib fan as other meats, and that's where they excel.

Those turkey legs at Disney are quite possibly the most disgustingly awesome things on the planet.  And not necessarily in a good way.
I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

Had a kick ass dinner tonight in Sausalito with Jackie, the highlight in the middle was crab donuts. Kind of a deep fried beignet with a warm creamy crab salad in the middle. A bit of powdered sugar on top and a sweet and spicy pepper jam for dipping. Just an incredible balance of sweet, spice, creamy, and salty, with some incredible textures at play as well. Very, very impressive dish all around...

(the other dishes are pork ribs and a seafood ceviche, both very well executed as well...)

I would't got that far, but that wouldn't be my first choice.

More importantly, which Six Flags?

Every year at the MN State Fair, I always get a funnel cake or elephant ears. They taste so good with that powder sugar. It may be incredibly hot at the state fair, but always good for a dessert when you're close to heading out.

The one at the fair doesn't come with the ice cream/whipped cream, but I imagine that it's probably pretty tasty and filling. Definitely would fulfill my sweet tooth!

I don't know what planet I was living on, but I just started trying Sriracha mayo and Chipotle mayo. Oh man, its so great on Mexican food. I can't wait to start incorporating it into other food to see how it blends. I'm loving it.

It was fucking killer. Braised shanks are one of my favorite meals, the two day labor of love that goes into it to do it properly, and the layers and layers of flavors that it develops, is unparalleled for me in the culinary world.

Today I went to Chaps pit beef in maryland. It was originally featured on Parts unknown so I figured I would check it out.







It was excellent

Been a while since I posted a work pic, so here goes...


From a VIP dinner for another hotel group's annual retreat, this is a shaved and candied persimmon salad, little gem lettuce and mache, chevre, smoked almonds, roasted shallot vinaigrette...

Can I just say how tasty a dish can be by just adding cheese. I just made a chicken pasta thingy and pretty much the main ingredient was blue cheese but that added so much flavor and i'm not even that much of a fan of strong cheese.

I'm picking up a 13 pound rib roast from the butcher today. I'm going to dry age it for a week in preparation for our family Holiday party next Wednesday. My plan is to rinse it and dry it as well as I can and then wrap it in cheese cloth before putting it my fridge's meat drawer that I've lowered to 32 F. I'll unwrap and rewrap it in cheese cloth every day until Wednesday when I'll give it a spice rub prior to cooking.

Have any of you done this? If so, any tips that you've developed to help me insure success?

So the dry aging worked out beautifully! After a week on a rack in the fridge it looked pretty scary and smelled really strong of raw meat. Like a ten foot diameter cloud.  :lol

I carefully sliced off the grossness to expose the good meat and it took surprisingly little to make it look appetizing again. A couple of hours at room temperature with the spice rub on it, and roasted to 130 F in the center and it was perfect! The dry aging really intensified the beef flavor so I'm very pleased with how it came out.

I only took one picture but I think Mrs. P took a bunch during each phase of the process so I'll share them later if anyone is interested.


So, I'm doing this again this year. Got the bad boy all wrapped in cheesecloth and in the bar fridge for his 34 F nap.
