BBQ Rub Supply in Toronto?

Many of the US rubs are not available for sale in Canada due to labelling issues that are not conform with ours. Best to find a BBQ buddy in the US who can send some to you.

Toronto to Sauble Beach

There was a taco truck in sauble beach last summer that was excellent.

Ribs that don't fall off the bone

As much as thin slicing can hide tough meat... thick slicing brisket is often used to hide overcooked or mushy meat.

Taste of Lawrence

no ticketers while I was there between noon and 2pm

Thanks for suggesting parking on Crockford... I was the 4th car in from Lawrence and just a few steps from the action. much appreciated

Taste of Lawrence

Thanks for the suggestion... I had the murtabak and enjoyed it as well as they two sauces they served on the side. Also had a few empanadas from the vendor right next to him and was totally disappointed by the lack of filling.

Will take a walk and explore. Thanks for the advice on the side streets... will try my luck.

Taste of Lawrence

Looking at attending Taste of Lawrence this coming weekend. Will be my first time attending and hopefully there will be some tasty food options. Any suggestions on things to try? I'm not really familiar with that type of cooking but willing to try anything.

also and just as importantly, can someone recommend someplace to park my truck. Doesn't matter if it's paid parking, but hopefully somewhere close to the action.

Toronto Costcos - which steaks do you buy?

Just look up Reverse Sear on youtube.

What is your current "List"? (i.e. places you want to try)

I'm not from Toronto and only visit a few times a year. My wishes are not extravagant and tend towards the quick meal.

Dinner and drinks in downtown Toronto

I don't know the vibe at Richmond Station as I've never been. My recommendation for your price range is usually the tasting menu at Trevor Kitchen and bar on Wellington. 55$ for 5 course. they also have a 9 course tasting available and you can do them with or without wine pairings.

Scarborough Hounds! Who's been to Ace's Place in Guildwood?

Just down Guildwood parkway... 2minute drive.

Scarborough Hounds! Who's been to Ace's Place in Guildwood?

its down the street from my in-laws. Maybe we'll try it over the holidays.

Is there somewhere that I can buy chicken skin in Toronto

check with one of the Chinese Grocers.
a friend of mine makes an cream cheese stuffed jalepeno wrapped in chicken skin. It's put together with a bit of meat glue to get everything to stay wrapped well enough to either deep fry or grill.

The Stone Cottage Inn / now Pub (Kingston Rd)

driven by many times as my wife is from Guildwood but I've never been. This summer they had a large offset smoker in the parking lot so I wondered what that was all about. i don't think they're a BBQ joint.

Corkage and Chef's Table / Tasting Menu

trevor Kitchen and Bar offer free corkage on tuesdays and wednesdays according to their website. Best to call to confirm though.

The Costco Thread - Ontario - 2014 - October to December

Mea culpa.

good indian food in Scarbourogh

The chili chicken and the garlic chicken were both good. I am no expert in Indian Food though... just going by what I like. They have 2 out of 3 peppers on the menu and are both plenty spicy. I see all the regulars ordering the Biryanis though so maybe they know something I don`t.

Ribs that don't fall off the bone

I think we have to distinguish between BBQ and competition BBQ. Most BBQ is fall off the bone, the type you get from slow smoking meat for hours. Competition BBQ should have a gentle tug from the bone. Meat that comes off the bone too easily would cost points in tenderness and be considered overcooked.

Rotel Tomatoes in Toronto?

since this thread is 3 years old, I thought I would revive it and see if anyone has found Rotel tomatoes anywhere in Toronto yet.
