  11. Got my first butt going

    Awesome looking butt. And for whatever reason, I also find 300 to be fine for butts (haven’t been brave enough to try it for brisket and I don’t think I will). I could literally tell no difference between a butt cooked at 225 and one cooked at 300. May dry out of you get a real thin butt, but I rarely cook thin ones.
  12. NYE hammy

    Amongst other things, my husband got me a mini Kurobuta ham from SRF for Christmas. I decided to do a side by side comparison. And of course this wouldn’t have been enough ham for 10 people. I separated the two hams with Mac n cheese on my plate hahaha. As you can see the ham on the right is far more deeply pink than the one in the middle. The kurobuta was not only more pleasant in appearance but it had a much stronger flavor. It tasted like meat more than whatever preserves ham. It was clearly the favorite. So good.
  13. So, as you may or may not be aware, on the guru there is a challenge to cook anything you want so long as it comes in at under $3 per plate. I thought this was going to be super hard, so I started watching the circulars for ideas. When chicken quarters went on sale for $.79 a lb my husband waved me down and said he wanted that. So I got to looking through the other circulars to find what else was on sale that would go with chicken quarters. The makings for mango salsa (amazingly ever item necessary was on sale) and brussel sprouts were on sale at sprouts so I headed on out. Here is my sprouts reciept i used everything except half of the onion and half of the cilantro. Then I headed to get the chicken and some bacon. Truth be told, I always have bacon at home, but I didn’t have a reciept from the last time I purchased it. If I do another cook that involves bacon I will just use this price. I feel a little silly buying a new pack of bacon when I had one in the fridge and another in the freezer (although that one is from SRF so I shouldn’t use it in a cheap challenge cook) I used all the chicken and four strips of bacon. Total cost 10.50 when making four servings it averages out to 2.62 a plate. Even though my kids didn’t eat full plates I accounted for them as if they were adults. Got on the salsa right away. seasoned the chicken with salt, Tasmanian Mountain pepper berries, garlic powder, ground mustard and paprika got them on the grill at about 375 then started the Akorn jr for the bacon and brussel sproutsthe chicken was finishing up i brushed them with a little peach jelly mixed with lime juice. I wanted to use honey, but I realized we were out! Oh well the jelly worked well. And dang do they look good brussel sprouts are finished. the risotto was done in my instant pot. I love this thing for risotto. All together now my husband says this was bomb doggity. I have to agree. This was so good and I can’t believe how cheaply I can get food when I really keep an eye out for it.
