(That would be an interesting title if this were the OT)
First, let's start some stock with the pieces that most throw away, being the carcass, heart, gizzard, neck and wing tips. You can make some liquid gold from virtually nothing.

| Food and Drink Board|| Smoking chicken with hickory. Am I alone in liking this? - Degas on 10/14/13 at 12:54 am|
Research and general consensus leads me to believe that smoking with hickory wood overpowers delicate poultry flavor. Pecan, cherry and other fruit woods are usually recommended in recipes.
Of course, the correct answer would be to do whatever you like if that's what tastes good to you, but am I...

I've never made them in the slow cooker before, but I've heard that while blander tasting than other cooking methods, they can turn out fairly moist for a very easy meal. There were a lot of discrepancies as to whether the breasts can be added frozen or not, and also the cooking time. Some recipes a...

On a last minute invitation to a pot luck Saints season opener party, I bought about 20 ears of corn for a grill that was never lit. I'm open for ideas as to store/cook/freeze. Usually, when I buy corn it's cooked and gone within hours so I've never had this dilemma. Should I simply shuck and freeze...
