    My smoker runs too hot all of the sudden and it's made it much harder to use. Smoked wings sounds pretty awesome, I wonder if you could then drop them in the fryer to crisp the skin?
    Seems like it could be gross or amazing.
    I know smoked meat does not do well in the microwave (not that any meat does) and the smoke taste sharpens and sours.

    The tomatoes are the best I have had this year.
    One with Hawaiian red salt, one with ghost pepper salt, the third with smoked salt.  All with a little pepper 
    So great.  (Smoked salt was best)

    Tonight I made a Korean dish for the first time. 
    Korean sizzling chicken (recipe here: https://www.sbs.com.au/food/recipes/korean-sizzling-chicken?fbclid=IwAR2C5TiLN9BWMULF90TGglanS30Whi-aput4P7a9_q6FUOamj9bUQP6o68Q)

    It was so good!

    I cooked it in a wok before transferring to a hot cast iron grill


    Served on the cast iron grill in front of me at the table

    Damn that does look good.
    I've always thought it would be awesome to host and sponsor immigrant families just so that they would cook their home dishes for me.

    The benefit of helping people would totally be secondary lol

    Never have cut the scallions (assuming that spring onion is the same thing/family?) so thickly, will have to try.
    Watched the link and I think yours looks as good/better than theirs. 
    Was the chicken spicy?  They have a Korean Market a few miles away, might want to try that marinade.

    Thanks guys. You should definitely try cooking it. I've never heard of scallions so am not sure if they are the same as spring onions. It wasn't too spicy. I bought my ingredients from a local Asian supermarket.

    Googled and...spring onion is the same thing that we call a scallion/green onion in the US.

    Thinking it is a chicken wing kind of night.  Defrosting some and will cook tomorrow if they are not ready for tonight.

    Last night I ate three ears of corn.  That was most of my dinner.  Stuff is like crack.  Thinking I am going to run and get some more at the farm nearby after work.

    How do y'all do your wings?

    Think I am going to bake this time but have been broiling.  Much faster that way. 
    Curious to hear what the Pearl Jam Food Crew does for theirs....
    Love me some chicken wings, though I don't eat them that often.
    The best way to cook them, and we all know it, is deep fried....then tossed in sauce.  Allows for the perfect cook and perfect crispiness.

    If you don't or can't fry them, here's a couple of other ways I do them...

    Alton Brown's method for cooking them without deep frying...
    Steam them for 10 minutes.  Let them cool, and dry.  Then cook them in the oven at 400+ degrees.  This method is great.  You cook them partially and while they steam, a good amount of fat comes out.  If you bake them hot without doing this, you get nasty smoke and your house stinks for days.  These won't smoke and they get nice and crispy.  

    Grilled or smoked.  Smoke them for hours or grill them indirectly with some wood in the coals. 

    Outdoor pizza oven.  I've steamed them prior and have just tossed them in.  Both turned out great.  700-800 degree oven cooked in cast iron.  Oh man!
    I baked and they were really good.  They were not as good as fried, of course, but much healthier.  The baking powder helped them crisp up...about half of them had a darn good skin texture.  (Other half were just ok)  Could have broiled again after tossing in the sauce.

    Like the idea of steaming them first.  Need to get a multi tiered steamer like old Alty uses in that method. 

    Need to get a smoker one of these days./

    It's awesome....highly recommend it.  I went with a pretty basic electric smoker that looks like a mini-fridge.  The electric ones are nice since you don't have to worry about maintaining the temperature all day and babysit it.  As long as you have some good smoke going in there it gets the job done.  This thread has inspired me to smoke some wings this weekend....I'll report back with how it goes.

    Sometimes even dry pasta can elevate leftovers into a superb dish.
    Chicken thighs, tomatoes, olives, peppers, corn, and basil.

    Last night was fun

    That looks like a dinner in southeast Asia (parts of it anyway) from the food shows I watch.
    That is a good thing.
    Crab dinner is always a great thing!

    Not sure that it's a bad problem to have, but this is always how much I cook... for two. Dark meat chicken in some Yoshida sauce, couple big ol' hunks of top sirloin, and some sweet scallops for dessert. Lol

    What food shows? I want to watch.

    Crab dinner was a delight.  There was also shrimp and clams that hadn't yet made it to the table.

    Chicken thighs look banging. Scallops too. I recently learned about the double skewers for shrimp and scallops and oh my, what a good and easy idea.

    Fuck yes, stellar work guys!

    Cliffy I watch so many....obsessed with them.  I read through many but look up when it gets good.
    Did you check out the new Ramsey show on May Geo?  First episode was really good.  Great scenery and they did some cooking.
    Netflix has lots of stuff.
