If anyone has advanced cooking questions let me know, I’m a serious home chef with past restaurant experience. French cuisine mainly, but i can also smoke and ferment meats. I’m no baking expert but I can make leaven bread.

You should post recipes. I do some cooking myself, always looking for something new

Hey beer brewers. After all these years it looks like brewing my own beer costs about the same as buying a lot of the beers that I like. Am I missing a calculation?

2018-04-02 19:03:46 UTC  

Makes sense. You're familiar with economy of scale, @Deleted User?

2018-04-02 19:05:36 UTC  

No

But I think I can guess at the concept.

2018-04-02 19:07:53 UTC  

The more you make of something, the cheaper it is per unit. A way to conceptualize it is to consider how long it takes to set up all your tools to do a job, and then realize that it doesn't take much longer to set up a large job than a small job. So a small job has a higher % of time and resources spent in preparation, so higher cost per unit

This is also why things are cheaper in bulk. If you buy a bag of yeast, remember that Anheiser-Bush buys yeast by the silo

After years of cooking just about every cut of meat, I come back to the shoulder every time: lamb should, beef shoulder (chuck), pork shoulder (Boston butt), venison shoulder. The connective tissue renders at low temperatures to produce the best flavor and texture. Plus shoulder is very affordable.

*If you buy a bag of yeast, remember that Anheiser-Bush buys yeast by the silo* haha this is a great quote

I make mine a bit chunkier than most for texture

@Deleted User as a person whose heritage is one quarter German autiste, it blows my mind that anyone got anything done before the Industrial Revolution

2018-04-02 21:49:32 UTC  

@Deleted User Shoulder, in all it's forms, is fantastic. Great for smoking - obviously like you said low and slow works best - cheap cut comparatively, if you're single you can always divide into several single-use cuts and freeze. Been buying Boston butts and going four sections, enough for me and my wife ends up being about $2 per meal for the protein.

2018-04-02 21:50:25 UTC  

You can pressure cook that to tender in about 90 minutes as well if you're pressed for time and don't care about the smoke.

holy crap...my grilled ribeye recipe has become so good after Easter dinner yesterday, you'll beg for them as leftovers today.

2018-04-03 00:40:05 UTC  

@Deleted User it’s a great cut for hosting large numbers and not breaking the bank.

2018-04-03 00:43:00 UTC  

@Deleted User , yeah our chapter had a bbq at my place recently - did a pork shoulder and Brisket, cost factor for the pork was ultra low. Feeds a ton of people.

2018-04-03 01:58:10 UTC  

@Deleted User can’t beat the flavor. Pork shoulder is the main cut for dry cured salami as well, plus fat back.

I like Venison as well, my kid kills quite a few every year ( or used to, he's got a limit now he's not a minor ) tastes delicious. Smoked a raccoon a couple years ago, that bastard was tasty

2018-04-03 02:05:29 UTC  

Dude, smoked, barbecued coon is pretty good, Opoussm is good too

2018-04-03 02:05:37 UTC  

Smoked

2018-04-27 01:34:28 UTC  

@Fox That looks fantastic man

2018-04-27 01:35:40 UTC  

@Deleted User thanks. I used to cook professionally. I loved it.

2018-04-27 01:40:39 UTC  

So did I. Getting back into it before too long

2018-04-27 01:40:53 UTC  

Everything else is boring

2018-04-27 02:27:42 UTC  

Yikes. They're kind of asking for it here

2018-04-27 02:28:27 UTC  

Mexican American Master Chef...oh yeah? Now serving Taco Tuesday at C.I.A. I guess

2018-05-07 22:15:00 UTC  

Optimal time for grilling hamburgers?

2018-05-07 22:15:39 UTC  

Right now @SamanthaM

2018-05-07 22:16:03 UTC  

@Freiheit - CA stooooopppppp

2018-05-07 22:16:23 UTC  

Some people like low heat from the coals, I like high flame 4 minutes per side.

2018-05-07 22:16:44 UTC  

But that's not "cooked".
