Nothing revolutionary, but I finally solved the problem of smoking up my house and setting off the smoke detectors.

| Food and Drink Board|| Cafe Adelaide review - Degas on 7/12/14 at 7:42 pm|
I did a TD search and found a couple of threads on this place, but they were locked.
I had a chance to try it after a couple of my foodie friends recommended it to me and I have to say that I went away underwhelmed.
I ordered remoulade ($10), turtle soup, black drum over succotash ($24 lunch ...

One thing I love about Louisiana is the delicious gas station food. I was passing through Luling today and this turkey neck was calling my name, which came with corn as well. Price after tax was $2.17.

I like taking a can of Bush's baby butter beans, mix it with a can of corn (end result is succotash), and then sprinkle on a bit of Slap Ya Mama.
Margaret Holmes puts out some good stuff too.

I usually implement the 3-2-1 method of cooking, or at least start them on the BBQ/Smoker then finish in the oven, but sometimes that can be a bit much, tending to the fire to make sure that it holds a constant temp, drip pan, spraying (I don't mop so that the rub isn't disturbed) the ribs with appl...

Glad to see that it's raining regularly early on in the Midwest for a nice corn season. Last year's drought was a bitch. This year it should be "knee high by the Fourth of July".

I'm starting with choice bone in beef short ribs, drizzled with olive oil and then a melange of fresh cracked peppercorns. I'm not adding salt since my beef stock already contains salt before being reduced. More on that later.

Now that I've plunged headfirst into sous vide cooking, I'm constantly looking for new things to try out. I came across a beef shank which is a cut I've never purchased before. (Cocido De Res on the label). I seasoned them with Montreal seasoning then seared in a cast iron pan. Pulled them out and a...

Just curious if it bugs anyone else in the least to see misspellings on the menu at a finer restaurant, or at least one that represents a certain cuisine.
For instance, the name Osso Buco will almost always be misspelled with two "c"s (Osso Bucco). Little Village, Cafe Bella and Nino's, who repr...
