| Food and Drink Board|| Let's make smoked salmon - Degas on 10/21/14 at 8:43 pm|
I'm starting off by mixing a dry brine, about four parts brown sugar to one part kosher salt and a bit of finely chopped garlic. Down into the bottom of a vessel it goes, then layered salmon face side down, then alternating until all is covered in the dry brine.

A small and easy Japanese dish that is very dear to me.
For the dressing: 1 part ground sesame seeds (I used a food processor), 1 part soy sauce, and 2/3 part white sugar
Blanch a bunch of fresh spinach leaves in boiling water for just one minute

So I was to bring some pot luck items to a gathering this weekend that I never made it to. One of the items is pineapple chunks soaking in vodka. I cubed a perfectly ripe pineapple, tossed it in a food saver bag, poured vodka over it and it's sealed. There is still some liquid vodka floating around ...

| Food and Drink Board|| Question about Billy's, Best Stop, and Don's Boudin - Degas on 9/23/14 at 3:09 pm|
I've only been to Best Stop and enjoy their boudin, but I have on problem with it. As some of you know, I'm on a sous vide kick, and since the boudin links are literally a foot long, I need to cut them in half to create portion sized bags to cook sous vide then freeze for future use. The issue I'm h...
| Food and Drink Board|| Anyone have a proven rib rub they would like to share? - Degas on 9/22/14 at 10:53 pm|
I know this has been discussed here before and I did a search but there is so much to sift through. I haven't taken careful notes of the threads that have listed recipes because I've never blended my own from scratch. Now that I'm thinking of stepping up my rib/butt output, I'll pose the question ag...

| Food and Drink Board|| Gas vs Electric Smoker - Degas on 9/9/14 at 2:16 am|
We all know the difference in taste between a gas grill and charcoal, but since the heating method in a smoker is simply to obtain smoke, what difference if any is there between gas and electric? Any pros or cons?
I know that some electric smokers have the capability of shutting themselves off on...

I don't live particularly close to a Rouse's, so I gave a call to see if they had the duck breasts that I needed. The meat department said that they did. I also noticed on their flyer that they have pork belly on sale, so I made the trek.
Upon arrival to the meat counter, all the duck they had w...

| Food and Drink Board|| Best method for shrimp to pick up optimal boil flavor without overcooking - Degas on 8/30/14 at 4:21 pm|
Say I'm doing just one batch for myself. It seems like a waste of dry and liquid crab boil, lemons, peppercorns and anything else for the shrimp to only be in that deliciousness for a couple of minutes. If you let the shrimp steep for a longer time, they're overcooked. If you cook them for a shorter...
