re: Thoughts on the Recteq B380? - marcus3000
I've had one for 3 months and love it. It's a 22 inch pellet grill (does that number ring any bells? Hint -- the old classic Weber size) Let it roar for 15 minutes to get the temp that you want stable, and it'll stay within 1 degree of that temp for as long as you have pellets in the hopper. It d...

re: How to dress your burger - marcus3000
Depends on my mood. Love mushroom & Swiss burgers; love blue cheese and grilled onion with mayo; love Kraft Deluxe with pickles and bacon and BBQ sauce. They're also great with just some mustard and cheese on a bun. The big deal for me is that the bun be buttered and toasted. ...

re: WFDT - marcus3000
I smoked and seared a top sirloin roast with some roasted veggies for a pre-game snack and sandwiches for the next few days. Turned out pretty good! [img]https://i.imgur.com/OPrwjIX.jpg[/img]...

Also grew up in Pineville. BJ's Full House all the way. Johnny's is good too and as others have said Wildwood is better than both, but there's that nostalgic taste that if you don't feel like driving across the river you'll be happy with....

re: Tri Tip in BR - marcus3000
Gonna strongly disagree with you. Here's the smoked tri tip I made on New Year's with some stovetop mac & cheese. Smoky, tender, fat rendered nicely; just an excellent cut of beef if you cook and cut it right: [img]https://i.imgur.com/hENURUL.jpg[/img]...

re: Can someone tell me the difference in Mediterranean - marcus3000
For my taste, Albasha is the best. Juicier gyros and dolmades, hummus is better, and their moussaka leaves Serop's crying in the dust. It's more expensive but worth it....

re: What’s the best way to prepare Eye of Round Roast? - marcus3000
I reverse sear it; it doesn't take much time to come out perfectly. Apply your favorite rub, stick it in a 225 degree oven until it hits 120-125, rest it a few minutes while you heat up and oil your cast iron, sear it on all sides then slice it against the grain. Lean but tasty roast that's pretty c...
