  1. So one of my local markets had Rib Roasts on sale. I decided pick one up and cut some Ribeye Steaks off it. I unwrapped it and cut the twine holding on the bones and removed them. I cut 3 2” steaks and the end piece ended up at approximately 1.5”. (I chose the second one from the right to cook) I seasoned it with some Primo Chicago Stockyard Dry Rub. I wrapped this in plastic wrap and let it rest for 4 hours. I had made a fire using some almond wood in our fire pit. After it was nice and hot I placed the steak over the flames. After approximately 1.5 minutes I flipped it. After another 1.5 minutes I moved over to the other side of the grill an let it come up to an IT of 130 degrees. I then brought it inside and let it rest on the counter for 8 minutes. I then sliced it in half. I then sliced it into approximately 3/8” slices and plated it up with some asparagus, a baked potato and a Stone Coffee Milk Stout. It was delicious. Thanks for looking.
  2. Thank you Ron. Thank you riverfish Crema is the Mexican version of French crème fraîche. Both are slightly soured and thickened cream, milder and less thick than American sour cream, with crema being the thinnest. Thank you SmoovD. I'll try and remember that for next time.
  3. Thank you TexasBlues. I airfried the fries for approximately 7 minutes at 350. If anything they were to crispy after that. Thank you Ed.
  4. I had a bunch of fries’ leftover from eating at a local burger place that I had saved so I decided to make a popular burrito here in San Diego. It is known as a California Burrito and typically has Carne Asada, French Fries, Frijoles, Cheese, Pico de Gallo, Guacamole, and Mexican Creama. (A 7-layer burrito if you want) Any way I started out making everything and was taking plenty of pics with my phone camera but somewhere in the middle of my cook I somehow (and I have no idea how) set my phone back to “Default” mode. Anyway, I don’t have access to those pics as of now and may never have access to them as they may end up being erased. So, I whipped out my Canon 70S and took the following pics at the end of the cook. I had purchased some Carne Asada and flour tortillas from the Mercado. I made up a bowl of Pico, A bowl of guacamole and some Mexican Rice. (No Pics) I then grilled up the Carne Asada. Here it is on the grill. I brought this in and diced it up into small squares. I then started to assemble the burrito. Started out with a nice layer of Mexican Cheese. Then the Carne Asada, Fries and some Pinquito beans. Then some Pico de Gallo, guacamole and some Mexican Creama. I rolled it up and placed it on the grill. Here it is done and ready to cut. And here are the plated shots with some spicy carrots, Mexican rice and a Modelo Negra. And a close-up shot. This was delicious! Thanks for looking.
  5. Life is very hectic for us these days and I don't get the chance to cook much these days and much more so to document those cooks when I do. It is the season we're living in for now with taking care of my 93 year old M.I.L. with Alzheimer's. Anyone who's gone though this knows how difficult it is. Anyway, last weekend I decided to remake the Blackened Chicken Torta I made a few years ago. First thing I made was some Pickled Red Onion. Pickled Red Onion recipe link: https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/27438-pickled-red-onion/?tab=comments#comment-367726 I then made up some Blackened Chicken rub and proceeded to make up the Blackened Chicken and Torta. Blackened Chicken Torta recipe link: https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/26599-blackened-chicken-torta/?tab=comments#comment-355872 I pounded some chicken breasts out to around 1/2” thick. I placed my CI skillet on the on side burner of my gasser and let it get smoking hot and blackened the chicken. I then toasted the torta roll and spread on some Frank’s Red Hot Mayo, a chicken breast and some pickled red onion. Then some avocado, tomato slices, some lettuce and the lid. Here are the Plated shots with a Stone Xococeza Mocha Stout and some Sun Chips. Delicious! Thanks for looking.
  6. I’ve made these numerous times and I’ve posted the recipes as well so I’m only posting a few pics of this cook. See Links: Enchiladas / Sauce: https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/12654-enchiladas-verde-con-pollo/ Rice: https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/24634-mexican-rice/ Started out making the sauce. Roasting the veggies and cooking the chicken. Once everything was done I mixed the chicken with some slivered onion and some cheese. I rolled / wrapped up a dozen enchiladas. I covered them with more sauce and some cheese and baked them on the kamado for 25 minutes. I plated some up with some fresh made Mexican rice, Frijoles’, some radish and a Modelo Negra. Muy Delicioso! Thanks for looking.
  7. Spent an uneventful time at home watching it rain outside most of the weekend. The one thing we could do was prepare for the Super Bowl. What goes good while watching a football game? Wings & Thangs of course. I’ve made these Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings and Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins before and they turned out great so I made them again and decided to share the pics. See link for detailed recipe and cooking method: https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/38718-honey-sriracha-chicken-wings-and-buffalo-chicken-potato-skins/ All I got this time were these plated shots They were extremely delicious just like the last time. Thanks for looking.
  8. Thank you St1brew and Ron5850. And you're right, it was
  9. Thank you KK. It was about as close to perfect as I can get.
  10. Thank you Golf Griller. It was perfect to me. I had to cook some a while longer for my wife as she doesn't like any pink let alone red.
  11. Thank you ndg. I too did lick my lips when I was done>
  12. It’s been a while since I last cooked anything let alone posted a cook. Sorry for that but life is just very busy and hectic for us these days. It’s also been a while since I’ve had Tri Tip and it recently went on sale, so I picked up this 3.79 lb. behemoth. I took it out of the package and trimmed it up a little. I them minced some fresh Rosemary from my garden. I rubbed it down with some Worcestershire sauce, then some fresh ground salt, some fresh ground black pepper, some steak seasoning and finally the minced Rosemary. I wrapped this up in plastic wrap and let it rest in the fridge for 6 hours. I then made up some Tzatziki with I also let rest in the fridge for 6 hours. Around 4:00 I started prepping the Redhead for the cook. I started by spreading a layer of red oak chunks in the bottom of the Vortex ring. Around 5:00 I lit up a chimney of lump and poured it over the oak chunks. I place the Tri Tip off to the side and let it slowly come up to an I.T. of 113 degrees. I then took it off and loosely tented it with foil. I then opened up the vents and let the Vortex go nuclear! (Here a pic without the flash so you can see it) I then placed the Tri Tip on the CI grate for 3 minutes per side. I then brought this in and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing. While that was happening I sliced up some veggies. I then sliced the Tri Tip in half along the seam where the grain chances direction. I then thinly sliced each half across the grain. OH YUM! I had purchased some nice Pita bread so I made a Tri Tip Pita sandwich. Delicious!
  13. I feel everyone has the right to eat what they want. Having said that, I fine this video very funny.
  14. Keeper, I've been by that spot (or a spot very similar) in Estes Park. Stayed twice in a hotel on Fall River there although I don't know where the Arkansas is from it. Best spot for me isn't a cooking spot so much as a picnic spot on the Madison River in Yellowstone N.P.
  15. While you're there if you could finally find that "guy named Charlie" for us it would be great!
  16. When shopping and got some groceries we needed. Picked up some nice brioche buns and we made cheeseburgers on the Akorn Jr. again. Sliced up the veggies. Cooked up the burgers. Assembled my cheeseburger and plated it with a slice of water melon, some pringles and a Modern Times Blazing World Hoppy Dank Amber. Delicious. Thanks for looking
  17. SoCal has been scorching hot these last 3 days. Friday was 111 in the shade of my patio. Unfortunately this was the day my neighbor’s air conditioning decided to quit working. They brought over their dogs for us to try and keep cool while they worked on it and went out to eat to cool off themselves. Saturday was 104 and Sunday was a were 100 so I braved the patio to cook something up. I’ve made a Buffalo Buffalo Smash Burger before that is IMHO the best burger ever. Unfortunately, our fridge quit working 2 weeks ago. It has since been repaired but my supply of pickled red onion went out with 3 trash bags of other food items so I decided to just use what I had on hand and make Smash Cheeseburgers. I stared out making some seasoned steak fries. I took 2 russet potatoes and cut each into 8 approximately equal wedges. I then drizzled on some EVOO and seasoned them with salt, fresh ground black pepper and a little cayenne pepper. I microwaved them for 6 minutes (stirring them every 2 minutes) to give them a head start on cooking. I then spread them out on a half sheet pan and placed it in the middle of my gasser with the burners on each side on high. (for an indirect heat of approximately 400) With the fries cooking I turned my attention to the burgers. I took some Nice organically grown ground beef and mixed in some diced onion and blue cheese crumbles. I started up a 3/4 chimney of charcoal and poured it into my charcoal baskets. I placed my C.I. griddle over them and let it get smoking hot. I divided the ground beef into 4 roughly equal size balls. Once the griddle was smoking hot I placed the balls on. Once they had developed a nice crust I smashed them. I let them cook a few more minutes and then flipped them and cooked them approximately 3 more minutes. After approximately 40 minutes the fries were ready. Here it is plated up with a Modern Times Black House Coffee Rroasty Stout. This was excellent! Thanks for looking.
  18. After a few months of sitting idle, my Jr. has been cooking up a storm recently. It's a great size for cooking for 1 to 3 people. I keep reusing the charcoal from each cook but usually add a little fresh each time to help it get started faster. May 15th cook. I've had 3 more cooks since that time. I still have pieces that I started with on that May 15th cook.
  19. I saw this package of Wild Caught Ono filets for a good price at Costco and decided to put it in my cart. Ono is the Hawaiian name for what we call Wahoo in Mexican waters. Here’s a picture of one. It’s a delicious tasting white fleshed fish. I’ve never had the pleasure to catch one but it’s one of the most sought-after game fish. It’s something like a cross between a Tuna and a Barracuda but with the size of a tuna and is one of the fastest fish in the ocean. I thawed out a couple of filets and then coated them with some Tajin seasoning. I let them marinate for a couple of hours while I prepared others things for my tacos. Once Jr. was 400 degrees I put the filets on for approximately 2 minutes per side. (They were triangular so that was 3 sides) Here they are plated up on some corn tortillas with red & green cabbage, onion, cilantro, avocado salsa, avocado slices, some Mexican Creama and a Modelo. Muy Bueno! Thanks for looking.
