    Fatburger is great. My Saturday afternoon lunch, often, in the 90s when I lived in SoCal. Charbroiled cheeseburger with a side of rings and a Coke.

    Appreciated finding a few Fatburgers in the northwest. Used to go to Redmond when I visited our Bellevue office. Pleasantly surprised to see one in Vancouver BC near the convention center. Sad they closed Federal Way.

    I think they changed their onion ring batter recipe. I thought they were better in the 90s. Could just be me.

    That's some kind of Asian - Cajun fusion magic! I like "let's empty out the fridge" night. Makes me feel like an Iron Chef, trying to whip up something tasty from somewhat random ingredients...T

    Loaded up of for the holidays? Can you freeze caviar? Or, will it last that long in fridge (assuming unopened)?

    They say it lasts 60 days in unopened jars in the fridge. (I don’t think you want to freeze it)

    Haven't posted in a while - here's a Boston Butt I did a few days ago. Turned out great. I'll let the pics do the talking. The bone just fell out when it was done - 8 hours at 225* and then rested for an hour. Wrapped in butcher paper at hour 5 when it was stuck in the stall.

    Ya, interesting. I haven't had any problems with the farmed caviars...which are pretty prevalent and tasty. What are you buying you like....maybe I'll try some?

    I've had caviar go bad in 3 weeks. Best to order right before your ready to eat or at least as quick as you can.

    I got some of their Osetra. I think its farmed in Bulgaria. IIRC Plaza has their product in some renowned restaurants. I'm not knowledgeable enough to know if its great or merely acceptable, nor how it compares to other sources. But for $33 an ounce, I picked up 6 ounces.

    wow! When is Rob going to get around to the "double, super, amazing LIKE" button? That looks awesome. I gotta man-up and try a pork shoulder at some point in my pellet smoker...

    Max...Eating candy is supposed to ruin your supper (per my grandma) not be your supper!

    Wife: Kroger has 16 - 23 lb turkeys, which do you want?
    Me: How long have we been married?!?
    Wife: Fine, I'll get the 23 lb turkey.
    Me:

    Practice turkey on the smoker today. It was one of those self-basting jobbies, so no brining.

    Oak and pecan. Three hours of heavy smoke. Finish in oven. I got a tad distracted with work, and it hit 180 F internal, so the breast meat was a tad dry. The rest was fine. Not too smoky. Good flavor.

    Very nice. Looked at a couple pork butts when at the store this morning. Didn't go for them this time.

    Got a lasagna from a decent Greek/Italian restaurant. Tonight will be sushi, or sashimi and chopped scallop rolls. Picking my dad up at the airport at 6pm. So I'll have dinner at my favorite Japanese restaurant.

    Shashlyk is not something I ever heard of.
    Something like this?

    My typical lamb marinade is lemon juice, S&P, rosemary, EVOO.

    Yummy! Looks great.
    I have not had a Pilsner Urquel since college, which is a few decades ago longer than I care to admit.
