I am on a gyro kick. Nothing like a good gyros sandwich to make the day complete.

The combination of flavors is better than a burger.

kwame: iamrex: You're welcome.

Go to Walgreen's.

Buy a bag of Blue Diamond Smokehouse almonds.

Eat them while you use that hickory smoke for what God intended: animal flesh.


Silly kwame. The nuts went in after the brisket came out. You know, because I hate to waste a perfectly good fire.

seelorq: Egoy3k: Yeah 'beer can' chicken has nothing on my, 'shove a big onion (in quarters) some garlic and some salt and pepper in the cavity, rub the skin with olive oil and season with thyme, rosemary and salt then roast it at high temperature until it's done' chicken.

/well it's easier to say...

Recall that chicken skin is none of that herby goodness on the skin ever gets into the meat. So take some of that herby oil--herby butter aint bad either--and put it under the skin. Then throw a sprig of that rosemary into the cavity.

Somehow game hens take the herb flavor even better than chicken.

You will like it.

I should know this but I did not, it's obvious when you think of it but thanks for the tip.

If I use butter I usually do put it under the skin, Maybe next time I'm mix the seasoning into the butter and get it under the skin.

Use Flax seeds as an egg substitute.

The soluble fiber in flax has a texture similar to egg when saturated and can be used as a binding agent in place of eggs in most baked goods. The linked recipe recommends mixing them before hand, but I've found that just adding the ground seeds and water is sufficient: they'll saturate on there own in the dough/batter.

DGS: I thought they coated a lot of these steel cans with plastic or something, similar to how they do so with the cans for Coke and the like.

Which is yet another reason why beer can chicken is actually a bad idea.

Shostie: spcMike: Also, CatherineM is wrong when she says strawberries don't go in salads.

That's different. Fruit salad implies fruit only.

Green salads, chicken salad, tuna salad.. keep your sweet fruit the hell out..

I've taken a stab lately and started making my own granola. I love the stuff and found it just so expensive to get in a store over and over. This way I also get to incorporate the things I want instead of 'well, this is good enough'.

I built my recipe off of this, but found it had a bit too much oat and not enough of the sweet binding mixture, so a lot was left dry. YMMV.

This was my revision when I worked on it. Pecans, Walnuts, and Almonds are incorporated, along with golden raisins and cherry-infused cranberry (Craisins). Turned out to be quite a hit with wifey and coworkers. It didn't last long.
