    I'm doing chicken wings and drums two ways:
    - a play off the Momofuku confit chicken wings (but with drums, as well) tossed in their standard Octo vinaigrette.
    - my every-few-years overly indulgent Buffalo wings that require combining butter/margarine/sour cream and way too many herbs and spices. I wish this didn't taste good, because the recipe is kinda terrible, but it's too awesome.
    Chips/Salsa/guacamole
    Leftover meat ziti from the dinner party the night before.
    Probably a Drakes Hopocalypse (since its released the day before) amongst other beers and gins.

    Nothing fancy. The pork will be the main attraction - I'm smoking about 20 lbs. of bone-in butts I got from Restaurant Depot. Way too much food but figure I'll freeze leftovers. I may do some smoked bacon-wrapped jalapenos/habaneros. I'll post pics this time.
    And what time are you serving? Think I will make some beef stew just because it is chilly outside. In a few days it is going to be in the 60's .... Yea Colorado.....cr****

    Due to the rainy wet weather up here in Wa State, were having Pot roast for dinner with some baked potatoes instead of putting them in the sauce

    Start with a rib cut Chuck Roast, salt and pepper


    Sear in a cast iron


    Add flavorings and


    Then add some high octane red wine and deglaze!!!!


    Should be ready around 530-6.

    Yeah, I have his book. It's somewhat of an interesting read, because he writes in his normal voice ("Yeah, fucking delicious three layer pork, bitch!"), but I wouldn't call it an absolutely must have (...when the recipes are as easy to obtain as everything else on the internet), but if his style interests you, at all, you would probably enjoy it.

    His flavors tend to be delicious, but usually far from their cultural recipe norm. I have a jar of his kimchi in my fridge. It's way sweeter and tastes more of fish sauce than any that I've had prior, but it's tasty.

    I have never been able to get in to Momofuku when I've been in NY but Chang fascinates me. I have this book where chefs talk about cooking and music. Chang's playlist is by far the best in the book. He calls it Songs to Lose Customers By - songs on heavy rotation at Momofuku

    Luna, "Chinatown"
    The Traveling Wilburys, "Margarita"
    The Kinks, "Sweet Lady Genevieve"
    The Clean, "Anything Could Happen"
    Silver Jews, "The Wild Kindness"
    Palace Music, "Work Hard/Play Hard"
    Erma Franklin, "Piece of My Heart"
    The Replacements, "Within Your Reach"
    Joe Strummer & the Mescaleros, "Coma Girl"
    Asamov, "Gone Head"
    The Rosebuds, "Life Like"
    Pink Floyd, "Childhood's End"
    Vetiver, "The Swimming Song"
    801, "T.N.K. (Tomorrow Never Knows)"
    Can, "I'm So Green"


    also, excerpt from interview:

    TRP: Why is there ice in your urinals?

    Chang: So when you piss in it it doesn't splash. Because it's stainless steel, without it, the pee goes all over."

    TRP: It's also kind of fun to watch the ice melt.

    Chang: Exactly. That's the main reason. I think it's one of the weird pleasures of being a guy is to watch ice melt, or snow melt, when you piss on it.

    I'm heading to a Super Bowl party on the weekend. Planning on bringing over something I was introduced to when I was tailgating at the GB/SF game. They're called armadillo eggs and its a cream cheese stuffed jalape˝o that is wrapped in bacon and then grilled. I'm thinking of kicking it up a notch and doing a few different additions to the cream cheese stuffing. Suggestions?

    There are a lot of different variations to those. Google "atomic buffalo turds", "ABTs", "atomic dragon turds" etc.

    Personally, I'm not a huge fan of cream cheese in them, it's kinda pedestrian. Consider pairing that with a more interesting cheese, like a gruyere, raclette, emmenthal, saint andre, etc. And then consider the cheese and meat pairing with something that will complement that, such as a sliver of fig, dried fruit, dried apple, etc. And then smoke that bastard in a smoker (if you have one) low and slow.

    If all of that seems like a PITA, another popular variation is to stuff with bulk sausage or some other meat filling, as well as some cheese. You can take a sliver of cheese, wrap in sausage, stuff in jalapeno (or other chile), wrap in bacon, and poof.

    Or, if you really want to fuck your guests over, make one of the poppers stuffed with Bhut Jolokia/Trinidad Scorpion pepper and unfortunate eater gets a prize. Like a burned out esophagus.

    Enjoy!

    I'm wondering if the subtle goodness of a ComtÚ or Emmenthal would be overwhelmed by the jalepeno?

    Believe it or not, when the green jalapeno is smoked, it really mellows out the flavor and the heat (which was somewhat counter intuitive to me when I made my first batch, since chipotles are spicy - the reason for their spicyness is the more mature red jalapenos are used, which when smoked, maintain a lot of thier heat). You'll get more of a true mild smokey green chile flavor instead of a raw hot flavor.

    Combine:
    (1/2 C) 1 stick of room temperature butter
    (1/2 C) 1 stick of room temperature margarine
    2TB Hidden Valley Ranch mix
    1.5 TB Cajun Seasoning
    1 tsp Cayenne
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1 tsp onion powder
    1 tsp cumin

    Once combined, stir in 1/2C of sour cream. The coolness of the sour cream will thicken the mixture, so fight through it. At this point, it's ready to use, but I usually just make a wax paper log and throw it in the fridge/freezer until it's needed.

    Warm up the Franks on a stove top (or microwave if needed) until it's hot enough to melt the butter when combined. Add however much butter you would normally add.

    I usually do the steam/bake wings method, but if you're using butter, margarine, and sour cream, why not deep fry the wings, too?

    Awesome suggestions. I think pairing some nice cheeses and dried fruit might be a little highbrow for the group that will be in attendance, but it's definitely something I'll try in a different setting. I think I'm going to roll with some roasted garlic, andouille sausage and various cheeses for this endeavour.

    Yeah, there's always a fine balance between looking like a total douchey snob and wanting to put out some interesting food.

    UFC is on this weekend, so Saturday night I'm making Vatapa (brazilian shrimp stew) and some chicken adobo for my filipino friend. Both are easy, interesting, and tasty as all get out.

    You can't go wrong with most stuff at Costco. There's a ton of heat and serve shit. Not the best quality in the world, but the convenience factor makes it a decent proposition.

    I especially think the "El Sol" salsa is a good choice.

    use more Saffron.

    of course ultimately it'd be nice for the price to drop too.
