Re: Good bacon recipies

Thanks for the suggestions!
Coffee and bourbon together? About how much coffee grounds? Does the bourbon make it more of a wet cure, or are we only talking a few oz per slab??

Good bacon recipies

I've tried a couple of different bacon curing recipes and prefer savory to sweet.
The interwebs have lots of recipes to choose from - what are your tried and true ones?

Re: Sous vide

My wife got me a Sansaire for Christmas and I've been playing with it. It's made some really nice steaks. I've tried a few different seasoning mixtures on the steaks, but so far I like salt and...

Re: Books for a 9yr old boy *short notice urgent*

Around that age I started reading Piers Anthony's Xanth series. It's young adult geared fantasy.

Re: Rocky Patel Factory Selects PC

I found one of these in one of my humidors the other day. The sticker I put on it when I got it said it had been in there for over 8 years. The yard was dry enough to finally hop on the mower and...

Re: ever had a beetle infestation ???

I had an infestation years ago when the extent of my inventory was a desktop humidor. A recent addition had a hatch out, and they were all over the place in there. Luckily everything was still...

Re: Turkish Coffee - Legal Drama.

My wife's grandmother lives with us. She's originally from northern Italy and she makes this for me every weekend. I like to drink a cup or two of regular coffee first, then I go to town on the hi...

Great coffee shop - Barismo in Arlington, MA

I'm in the Boston area for Christmas and stopped by a small coffee shop. They impressed the heck out of me; if you're ever in the area you should stop by and check it out.
I walked in and thought -...

Re: Need some help - Part II

I have a doser-less Rocky, and just measure the required amount of whole beans into the machine, and grind right into the filter basket.

Re: BBQ Grill Coffee Roaster

How is this bad boy constructed? This sounds like a good upgrade for me from heat gun / dog bowl roasting.

Re: Popcorn Popper Coffee Roasting

I started with the popcorn popper method, but quickly moved on. I use the heat gun/dog bowl method now. Easy, more control over the roast, very little extra equipment needed. Needs to be done...

Re: What is a very good Espresso machine

Brikkas are more fun and less work than regular old mokapots. Mukkas look great, too, and although I've never tried one the videos I've seen look pretty sweet. Consider getting her one of those two...

Re: Looking for a Coffee Roaster

This works great for me. Roasting outside (or on my covered porch in inclement weather) is a must because of the smoke and chaff.
Great control over the roast, I do one to two cups of green at a...

Re: Smoking Technique

Something else that is very useful is purging the cigar - blowing through it for a breath. I've found that doing this after the flavors start to go off a little can refresh them again. I usually do...

Re: Smoking Technique

Train yourself with MILD cigars... if you start with stronger ones before you learn to modulate the amount of smoke you won't have a very pleasant experience. Once you get the hang of it, it's a...

Re: Technivorm comparison

I think they have different capacities and different collection pots (some are thermos type). I haven't heard of any performing poorly.

Get some whole bean coffee within a few days of it being roasted, and brew it in a French press or with a pour-over type drip brewer. Fresh coffee + proper water temperature = something very...

Re: Refining Your Palate

I'm in the camp of blowing some smoke out your nose with every draw. The difference in what you get out of the smoke is huge. It does require practice to learn to do and to regulate the amount of...

Re: Old Henry Robusto

The one of these that I tried had so much firey spice that even a tiny nose exhale was painful. The spiciness was even too much for the mouth flavor. I hoped that it would just be an initial burst...

After the whirly grinder, I started with a cheap burr grinder - worked OK for a few months of almost daily use for drip/french press/mokapot then crapped out.
