Got a 9lb bone in butt sitting in the fridge right now. You have a rub you like?

Edit: also, do you use any injections? I've never tried it, but I've seen a lot of recipes use apple juice

I like meathead's memphis rub

https://amazingribs.com/tested-recipes/spice-rubs-and-pastes/meatheads-memphis-dust-rub-recipe/

I don't do an injection because if you don't do a texas crutch, then you have a stall and you cook out most of the water, so adding water I assume would make the stall longer, but I haven't tried it so IDK for sure

That makes sense about the stall. This smoker is supposed to run for 6 hours on one charcoal basket, so I'll be using the crutch. Meathead's rub is what I used for the ribs. It's fantastic.

update on the tea eggs

(here's the recipe I used btw)

https://omnivorescookbook.com/chinese-tea-eggs/

they're very good after a week but the sodium starts to penetrate the yolks are turn them green. I think this is releasing sulfur because I have been having hte most horrendous farts. like usually eggs make them potent but these are like approaching chemical warfare levels.

they are really good though you should make them and punish the people around you

how would y'all use a bottle of cayenne infused olive oil?

it smells like pretty decent stuff as far as the oil itself goes. i was thinking of maybe making some kind of tex-mex caprese salad

When does the hurting stop?


re: biscuit chat

if you have a decent food processor you can cube your butter then freeze it and blitz it into the sifted dry ingredients until it resembles fine sand, pop the mix back in the freezer for 20-30 to prevent the butter smearing while you mix in your liquid(buttermilk)

all you have to do is add your buttermilk/liquid and ya got great biscuit dough

i used to keep a batch of the butter/dry mixture in the freezer for rapid deployment

add some cilantro or swap out the basil for it and go with a Mexican soft cheese instead of mozz. i bet that would be a kick-rear end salad. good idea and now i want to try it

yeah, and i'm thinking the tomato can stay the same, and to keep the acidic profile the balsamic would give it, squeeze some fresh lime over it instead

https://www.seriouseats.com/recipes/2019/04/spaghetti-con-la-colatura-di-alici-pasta-with-colatura.html

So loving tasty. Only thing I changed was that I added a few bay scallops.
Highly recommend for a lazy pasta dish. Hardest thing was getting the anchovy sauce

I feel like we are at the crest of a fish sauce renaissance.
Maybe I am just being optimistic but it sure seems like people are actively seeking umami foods and Asian fusion influences lately so I hope it's the case. If not for the fact that it stinks and is called fish sauce it could be the next old big thing

puttanesca sauce and caesar dressing are great, but take a run at a french tapanade. olives + anchovies + oil are amazing. a little goes a long way as a condiment for some crusty bread

All of these. When I make Caesar dressing, I wind up dicing a couple filets and destroying some organ or another by eating the rest on fancy “for company” crackers. I never use the paste, maybe try a tiny bit on a triscuit? Dip your pizza crust in it?

I sneak fish sauce and anchovies into various foods I cook for my midwestern family at our yearly get-togethers and they love it and can’t figure out what the secret is. I will never tell them either, because if I did they would all of a sudden find it “fishy” and not like it anymore. Food psychology is weird.

When there were five in the bed and we all rolled over I said nothing, because I would not fall off.

yeah as long as one doesn’t go over board add it to everything. just below anything tasting “fishy” will even make the most boring Midwestern Norwegian palete pleased. Chile, stew, just about any sauce, most soups, it’s hard go wrong with a tps or tbs.

You can add an anchovy to pasta sauce or many other things, and it will add umami and not be fishy. It’s nice, and similar to fish sauce but slightly different.

the only place i can stomach anchovies is in my aglio, because i use enough garlic to overwhelm basically every other flavor.

I made a stir fry tonight with bok choy, carrots, scallions, mushrooms, and pork loin "boneless ribs"
I used the red boat fish sauce pretty liberally along with aromatics, and brown sugar/honey and pearl river dark soy sauce for the pork

the dark soy sauce/pork combo has yet to disappoint me.

I can't believe how many years I wasted trying to reproduce the delicious pantheon of Chinese/Japanese/Korean/Vietnamese flavors with a just bottle of kikkoman and wondering why the restaurant food always tasted so much better

I can't wait to see what the next obvious in hindsight revelation is going to be for my cooking journey
