  1. My new toy.....
  2. Ummm...everything? This is ES, after all....
  3. It's Kurt, ! Get it right. Geez!
  4. A little goes a long way.
  5. It was excellent. Here's the link to the recipe. I'm addicted to cooking shows! http://www.cookingchanneltv.com/recipes/tiffani-thiessen/grilled-corn-with-sriracha-mayo-2776510
  6. I usually grill in the husk. This past weekend, I tried something that we saw on a cooking show. Removed the husks, grilled the corn over med-high heat, until it was slightly charred. While it cooked, I made a Sriracha mayo, with chili-powder and lime juice. Took them off the grill, slathered in the mayo, and sprinkled cilantro on them. It was.killer
  7. Meatheads is the Man! I'm jealous. I rarely buy pre-made rubs, mainly because I'm a cheap ****. That, and I can make my own kick-ass rubs, for a fraction of the price. That being said, I've heard a lot of great things about Dizzy Pig rubs, so I finally broke down and bought the coffee-based Red Eye Express. It's excellent. The only thing I didn't like about it, was the $10.35 price tag! There's definitely some Dizzy Pig in my future. I'm also a huge fan of Penzy's spices. My Mom gifts me Penzy's every year. I'm on a Pecan kick too. I've been using it a lot lately.
  8. I make my own Memphis-style rubs. They're riffs on Meatheads Memphis Dust and Steve Raichlens Memphis Rub recipe, from my dog-eared copy of his "Barbecue Bible" I use their base recipes, and tweak them. They're somewhat similiar, in that they both contain paprika, brown sugar, sugar, garlic powder, chili-powder, and.onion powder. Meatheads recipe is salt-free and sweeter. I dry brined it, last night with salt, so I used a heavy dose of the Dust, and a lighter sprinkling of Raichlens. I smoked it on the Weber kettle, with a Slow n Sear which is, hands-down, the best accessory made for Weber kettles. Used a couple of pecan and sugar maple chunks for the smoke. It took 9 hrs at ~ 240°.
  9. Looks great!! That's the only way I'll grill whole chicken. More crisp skin and it cooks a lot faster. For the life of me, I don't understand why people don't have herb gardens. It's a helluva lot cheaper, and a lot more flavorful than store-bought. I have a pork butt on the smoker,.put it on at 8:00 am, and its sitting at 191° right now.Gonna pull it soon. Done! Pulled pork, Southern-style green beans and cornbread

  11. I was gifted a bottle of Angels Envy. It was the one aged in Port barrels. They have a cask strength that I wouldn't mind trying, but I'm too cheap to pay for it.. I thought it was okay, but wouldn't spend money on it. If you like Basil Hayden's , you might like Blanton's , or Rittenhouse Rye, or even Bulleit Rye. Edit: I just read TWA's post, if you like the Basil, try the Old Grandad BIB, or the 114. It's inexpensive. It's all subjective anyway...
  12. IMHO, that Giants game may have played a bigger role, than we fans think. I'm a big Cousins fan, but that game is the one game that KC really, really, really pissed us off. By "us", I mean Mrs Skinsfan and I. We go to every game, and sit in the lowers, on the Skins side. One of the advantages of going to games, is the ability to see things that the TV cameras miss. One of them is the players, and coaches, body language, on the sidelines, in the huddles, and how they interact during commercials and breaks in the action. Hell, you can almost tell how the game is gonna go, just by the players attitudes during the warm-ups and when they come out of the tunnel. Point is, I knew we were ****ed for that Giants game, and I put that squarely on Cousins. On the sidelines, and during breaks in play, he had clearly checked out. Little interaction with his teammates, pacing the sidelines, by himself, no one around him, hands on hips. Mrs Skinsfan noticed it too, and it pissed us off, big-time. I'm still pissed.
  13. If you get a chance, hit up a Costco that sells liquor. Kirkland Anejo is legit. My tequila drinking friends love it, and couldn't believe that it is only $19.99 at Costco.
  14. In London, I drank nothing but British ales. It's a great beer town.
