Reducing oil Splatter with the Momofuku fried chicken, HELP!

Thanks for the info and advice todao! I can use all the help I can get with reducing the splatter. I just tried to make toffee and burned the first batch of the season! Hopefully not a sign of things to come.

Do you think that the splatter screens they sell at dollar stores would help keep the splatter under bay, or are those a waste in your experience? Thanks again!

Reducing oil Splatter with the Momofuku fried chicken, HELP!

I am planning on making David Chang's fried chicken tonight, which is steamed and then chilled, then fried. Since it is fried without flour, the oil popping and spattering is ridonkulous, I was hoping that you clever hounds had some ideas to help me avoid oil burnies.
I will be frying in a large Dutch oven, but I do not own a deep fryer. Thanks for the help!

That sounds great! For sure, some sauce on the rice, if not bechamel, a tomato base.

Husband loves Killians Irish Red. . .

Thanks guys, I guess cheaper is not the most important, I just would like him to open up his beer mind and try some new ones.
I will have him check out some tastings, thanks for the info!

Husband loves Killians Irish Red. . .

Hi,
I am trying to get my husband to branch out to other beers, currently, he only drinks Killians. What would you suggest as another one that is similar to that, but perhaps cheaper, more widely available?
Thanks Beerhounds!

How to store massive amounts of flour and rice!

Thanks, yeah, that is what we ended up doing, Snap on lids, airtight bins, flour type on top.
We have a mudroom, so we stuck them back there, out of the way.
Thanks again!

How to store massive amounts of flour and rice!

Quine, we do use lots of both of these things, by husband makes bread and pizza dough weekly and we eat rice a coupld of times a week. I wish that my impluse buys were flour and rice and not bison steak and 5 different kinds of cheese!
I would be able to freeze the flour, thanks for that suggestion!

Thanks Celeryroot!
Yeah, I can remember my mom doing that, but since these can't even fit in my cupboard, do you think that would be enough?
Thanks again!

How to store massive amounts of flour and rice!

I went to Costco this weekend and emerged with 25lbs each of rice, flour and bread flour.
I do not want this to go bad or get bugs, what would you recommend as the best way to store this to keep out the buggies and unwanted elements?
Big plastic tubs? Clean trashcans? Thanks for all your suggestions.

No knead bread with no dutch oven

Thanks chowser, I think that I will err on the side of NO explosions :)
I am starting to think that the dough, on a piece of parchement, into the oven, on a pizza stone with a pan underneath with water in it, maybe that would work?
I was watching the Artisan bread in 5 min a day video and they did the water thing. Would that be a good substitute?

No knead bread with no dutch oven

Excellent, thanks! My handles are also oven safe, so I should be good there, would you recommend tenting tinfoil tightly over the pan if the lid does not fit?

Thanks for all the great feedback! Using a Pyrex, wouldn't it shatter at 450-500? That was my concern.

No knead bread with no dutch oven

Hi all,
I am going to attempt to make the no knead bread that is on the NYT site this weekend. MY question to you, oh wise chowhounders, what to do if I have no dutch oven?
I do have oven safe pots and pans (a wide, deep skillet and a large saucepot) would this be a suitable sub?
Do you have any suggestions or variations that worked for you? Thanks!

Trying to make crock pot meals daily, recipes please!

That sounds great!! Girlwonder! Just one question, but pepperoncini do you mean the jar of pickled pepper rings that you find in the condiment isle? Just want to make sure I get the right thing. Thanks!

Any Good Restaurant in Mesa?

I agree with my fellow Chowhounds, not a great selection of places in Mesa, but I had to mention this gem. Sushi Kee is perhaps the best restaurant that I have been to in the bustling metropolis of Mesa.
They are tucked in a strip mall at Power and Main. Excellent service, excellent quality!
I love the Mesa roll and the Red Mountain roll are both something special.
I would suggest sitting at the sushi bar! Excellent!

Advice on starting a small food business

Thanks for the advice, SK, I will check into that for sure. We do have a lot of farmers markets out here (Colorado), so I am hopeful that we have a "Pickle law".
I am just trying to stay within the law, put up a little investment and be successful, not too much to ask at all! LOL!
Thanks again!

Advice on starting a small food business

Hello fellow posters,
I am newish to posting, so please be kind. I am kicking around the idea of starting a VERY small home- based food business, specializing in homemade, simple, tasty sauces.
I have lots of experience in the home kitchen and a good head on my shoulders, I am planning on starting small and expanding if there is a demand. I am not willing to "quit my day job" right away, but that is the eventual goal, so it would be part time to start.
Any advice on what has worked for you, food safety guidelines and wisdom to impart, ways to connect with businesses, etc would be great! I would be most greatful!
