Green Egg

I have a feeling that Costco does buy close out stuff. In massive quantities mind you.

Keep in mind that if you buy from them, their return policy is fantastic.

Cold pizza for "brunch" is a lot of people's guilty pleasures.

Leftover smoked bbq pork loin

Not that you still have it on hand but if you or anyone else out there has left over smoked pork loin, you can slice it thin and fry it like bacon. I often by pork tenderloin on sale, dry brine for about a week and then wash off the salt/seasoning. I smoke for a couple hours and then slice. It's almost like fat free bacon.

I find that a common element to these types of food is garlic.

Tomato preserves. Ever made it ?

I have not but had a jar given to me by a friend. It was outstanding.

You also need to keep in mind that the box will take up a fair bit of inventory space in the vehicle coming back.

If you're worried about duty, just buy a small bag of match light and burn it inside. Bring it back unboxed and say you brought it down with you. "See, it's been used!!" Drop off the warranty info and stuff in the mail.

Charcoal Starters - Chimney vs. Electric?

Sorry. I reread and realized misunderstood what you had said. I thought you had complained that the lump charcoal burned too quickly. So my reply of using better charcoal would be appropriate. As better charcoal lasts longer.
My mistake

No-boil lasagna noodles

Who cares if it breaks anyway?? It's covered up.

Oh, and I mean the paper burns way slower.

DT

No-boil lasagna noodles

Yes. Soaking in hot water will make them pliable.

I use regular noodles and don't bother boiling or soaking. What I do do is repeatedly push down on fresh noodles as I put them in. So they sorta sink into the layer below.

If I were making for company I'd invest in fresh noodles. Or make my own (which I've never done but have it in my mind I should try sometime.)

No-boil lasagna noodles

I use regular noodles, don't soak and don't let sit either. I do make a loose sauce so maybe that is to my advantage but I just make a lasagna and bake. Works great every time. The noodles are cooked perfectly. The whole dish holds together well also.

Alabama Coast - Oysters

We'd heard so many great things about Wintzell's that Mrs. Sippi insisted we visit the one in Huntsville. It was rather mediocre.

Charcoal Starters - Chimney vs. Electric?

Use better charcoal. I was using whatever was handy (usually Kingsford) but a guy turned me onto some Argentinian hardwood lump charcoal that was amazing. It lasted at least twice as long and as such, had very even heat.

Charcoal Starters - Chimney vs. Electric?

I use a can of cooking spray but cooking oil smeared all over the paper works the best. It makes the paper burn way faster.

Is it still open?? I drive by and never smell "Bread" anymore.

It could be worse, she could be becoming a "Green Hornet." Which in TO is the nickname for the parking meter enforcement people. They're real popular 'round these parts.

Nothing wrong with that. Go with your strengths I always say.

DT

Chowhound Cake Day 2014!

Yes. It was a birthday cake for Mrs. Sippi. It was awesome although I don't think my frosting was exactly right. It should have a 7 minute frosting which I had never made and quite frankly, aren't that familliar with. It really didn't set and while the cake looked awesome once frosted and covered with coconut it was a cake in the middle of lake coconut the next day.

It was very awesome though.

DT

Have any made a coconut cake from scratch?? One has not completed baking cakes until one has done that. Quite a long afternoon.

I had no idea immersion blenders were so dangerous!

You can see the mistake on the horizon and are powerless to stop it.

Where to find Split Top Hot Dog Buns in GTA?

I find that it's hit and miss at the major's. One Metro may have them and the next one may not. But that's where I'd look.

More popular now than a couple years back but still not main stream
