re: Is grocery store tuna safe to eat mostly raw? - Tadey
I have used raw fish from rouses in sushi. If you sear it you’ll be fine. I recommend the Tuna labeled something like “wild caught previously frozen” as the wild usually has a better taste and previously frozen means it was probably flash froze right after they caught it. I would be careful wi...

Cooking with Jalapeno & Cheddar Smoked Sausage - Tadey
I recently had a pig slaughtered and have 21lbs of smoked jalapeno cheddar sausage in my freezer. I know its not typical, but the sausage is delicious and I am wondering if anyone has ever used this sausage in any cajun dishes. I am wondering how the sausage will fair in a jambalaya, gumbo, or re...

re: How do you make your Zoodles? - Tadey
Surprised no one has mentioned this already, but hands down best way to use zoodles: Spiralize the zucchini into a strainer in the sink. Toss the zoodles in salt and then let them sit while you cook whatever is going on top them. When your sauce is ready serve the sauce directly on top of the z...

re: Roll Call - Those who have been bitten by a Mandoline - Tadey
Very similar to how a mandoline slicer works, but not exactly. I sliced the tip of my thumb off trying to clean a margarita maker. Par of it was jammed and I was trying to spin it and when it finally gave my thumb went clean across the blade. Recently, I sliced the side of my middle finger off wh...

re: Jambalaya Setups - R&R vs Gary Matte - Tadey
You are right and wrong. Cast iron IS a very poor heat conductor, BUT it does not cook unevenly because of this, rather it [i]heats up[/i] unevenly. This is also part of the reason we use round bottom pots. Because it is such a poor heat conductor, there are smaller fluctuations in temperature. A...

re: Electric smokers - Tadey
Can't go wrong with a Masterbuilt electric smoker. They are easy to use and good on price. They go on sale at home depot pretty regularly. I got mine on sale around fathers day. I have the 40" and I have only gotten close to filling it up once. The 30" has plenty of room and will get you through mos...

re: Jambalaya Setups - R&R vs Gary Matte - Tadey
Thanks for all the feedback guys. Basically what I am hearing is that both are good setups, and no one has regrets about buying either. Sounds like I'll be in good shape no matter which one i go with. [quote]While on the subject of jambalaya set ups, I’ve always wondered why the round bottom pot?...

re: Jambalaya Setups - R&R vs Gary Matte - Tadey
Thanks for the input. I am aware of the aluminum setups, but they are $130 more. I honestly like the aesthetics of R&Rs stands better, but cant justify the price. I have a 48" paddle so I guess I am set up for the aluminum :lol:. Thanks for the input....

re: Jambalaya Setups - R&R vs Gary Matte - Tadey
I have not. I live in Hahnville, LA. I would imagine like th hardware store in Houma though that they may have the combo but it will be marked up significantly. If anyone lives around there and sees differently though, I'd love to know....

re: Jambalaya Setups - R&R vs Gary Matte - Tadey
Yeah Morbid, I am hoping my sister who lives closer can go get it for me because if I go in there looks like I’m going to be a kid in a candy store. Also, I doubt in anyway that R&R makes an awesome product. I just can’t get past the benefits of the aluminum over the carbon steel at the moment....
