    What Do You Wish You Could Transport On Your Bike?

    Way back when, one of the cycle magazines had an article about this rich guy that went touring on his bike. Wasn’t a Goldwing, or any touring bike of that day, but a bag free sport bike. The guys luggage, tools, camping gear were all in a BMW auto following him with his butler at the wheel...

    How far would you ride to grab lunch round trip?

    I don’t ride in the dark. So sunrise is the earliest start time. Too many deer here to consider heading out before then... 😉

    How far would you ride to grab lunch round trip?

    Well, let’s do the math... “Lunch” is usually consumed between 12 noon and 1 pm. If you leave at sunrise (about 6 am here) that gives you 6-7 hours to arrive at your destination. If it’s mostly highway, you can average 70-75 mph (if lucky) so that’s 75 X 6.5, or about 490 miles, 980 round trip...

    Smokers (BBQ - not grilling)

    Memorial Day fare....my bacon wrapped chicken thighs, basted not with BBQ sauce but my moms “cacciatore” sauce. Served with the wife’s awesome egg potato salad. The sticky sweet sauce worked great on the grill.

    Nice to hear Fred. I usually opt for the soft (flour tortilla) taco. I hate the super crunchy corn tacos that shatter as soon as you bite into them. (I actually love the fried tacos from Jack in the Box) The ones I made were not that crispy, thankfully. The leftovers will either end up in...

    Smokers (BBQ - not grilling)

    I’ll have to say it came out great. My attempt and making my own taco shells had a few issues, but were still quite edible. (I baked the tacos after filling and one side was crispy, the other side not.) I don’t own a taco shell rack, which likely would have been the way to go. Or just buying...

    I’m told they also make a Cajun Style one. A “turkey breast roast” is a small football shaped roast, that is boneless turkey breast cuts and connective breast meat that’s been rolled together and put in a string net to hold it together. They usually weigh about 3 pounds (and some are sold with...

    Well, pull temp was suggested by a few cooking sites. As you know, killing off bacteria is a result of temperature and time. 165 degrees suggested by the FDA is a blanket number for poultry. From Serious Eats: “Well, here's the thing: Industry standards for food safety are primarily designed to...

    4 hours 15 minutes, pulled @ 157 degrees. Will let them cool off, then they will be sliced up. One goes to someone else, the other two are ours 👍

    Well, up this morning to smoke three “turkey breast roasts” . It’s supposed to get up to the mid 60’s this afternoon, but I have an appointment later, so started the smoke early. Using hickory and applewood. Very simple rub of poultry seasoning, onion, garlic, kosher salt, pepper, and paprika...

    Knifemaker making knives.

    The wood for my cutting boards is all locally sourced. Everyone in the area knows to ask me if I want the wood for any tree they cut down. All the oak goes to a neighbor that burns it for heat. All the cedar and black walnut are cut to 4-6 ft logs that I take to a friend who has a sawmill that...
