Food Network?

Has anyone watched a show and thought that a dish sounded great? You go to their website and download the recipe. You look at it and it is different. It could be that the measurement of the ingredients are not the same. Or maybe when and what time to add ingredients differ. What about time and temperature is not the same. I love this channel but can't stand downloading a recipe only to find it not the same. Does anyone know how to contact the Producers to correct this problem or am I the only one?

Try Tommy's Joint on Van Ness and Geary. Thick sliced before your eyes...

Side Smoker help needed

I'm thinking about buying a Char-Grillin' smoker. What I need to know is do you start the wood with charcoal? If not, what. Where I live I can only get wood chunks not small logs. Do you burn the wood the whole time, (Brisket and Ribs)? Any and all help needed as you're working with a dunce here.

Does anyone know...

...Where to find El Pollo Loco marinade? We have bought it at Safeway years ago but can't find it now. Anywhere in the Bay Area would be fine. Thanks...

Little Chief Smokers?

I thank you for your reply but I'm using a electric "Little Chief" smoker. After I smoke the ribs I will finish on a gas grill. Thanks...

A couple of hounds in from Toronto looking for some casual eats.....

Four blocks south on Van Ness is Tommy's joint. It's been around forever. Great beers from around the world. They also have the best hand carved sandwichs in The City. Ever try Buffalo? The best stew you'll ever have. Welcome to our City and when you get home, tell us about your adventures.,

How many...

Just north of Arcata is Trinidad. In that small Village is a restaurant called Larrupin'. It is a delightful place with great service and even greater food.

Stuffed Cabbage in the Oven...?

Yes - in fact the oven is the only way I do my cabbage rolls. I put layers of cabbage rolls in a large roaster pan and cover with sauce. I put the lid on and cook for 2 - 3 hours at 325. I make a large amount because the cabbage rolls can be frozen and reheated in the microwave for a quick dinner after working all day.
