Recipe and Food Pics thread.

OK, no recipe here but I have to post this... we've been buying Nathans hotdogs now for a while ... they are soooooo good. Anyone else think ths same thing?

grilled Dog
chopped onion
mustard
soft bun
= heaven

The only thing missing is the ballgame...
Maybe a spot of chili. Say Tommy's chili? We do this in the dez a lot.
 
Did brats last night..... not the best way but as a lastr minute type deal...

* Got a pot of water boiling with a LARGE onion in it and lots-o-garlic. No beer bath this time...
* Poked some holes in the links to help soak up the goodness
Got them a litle gray... pulled them out let em dry a bit and placed them on a hot skillet to brown up a
bit. Yes, normally I gril on the bbq but it was getting dark and I don't have good lighting out there.
* Once browned put them back in with the onions for a couple minutes...

Now dress them up as you please...
* Since the onions were mainly for flavoring the water they got a little mushy so I used them sparingly
On 1 - Deli mustard and some dill relish
On 2 - Peppers, Deli horseradish (a little)

Not bad for a last minute "fix"...
 
Speaking of horseradish, I found that Smart and Final carries a brand called Atomic, and it is the best next to home made. Last a long time and is in the refrigerated section next to produce.

I've heard of that, maybe on here and maybe from you in a different post... with the name ATOMIC< I can only guess why it lasts a long time... KInd of like the DAVES INSANITY hot sauce I have... 2 drops can ruin a good bloody mary...
 
Don't know if any of you have heard or seen one of these ... it's called "La Caja China (The China Box)". It is a wooden box lined with sheet metal... the way it cooks is from the top down. As you can see the coals go on a rack on top, an ash tray catches the ashes. The box has a drip pan on the bottom and a rack for holding whatever it is you're going to cook. We did a 65lb pig yesterday... Oooo was it good. injected it with several different "flavors" with Stubbs being the base liquid. seasoned it and cooked it for 5 hours. Flipped it after the first 3-1/2... took it out and carved/chopped it up for tacos or however they wanted to eat it.
