    Ello Birds and Blokes,

    I've been busting my ass all day long on a contract job. I'm pretty achy and I didn't feel like cooking, so here's what I had from a "Chinese" take out place...

    On Tonight's Menu:

    Singapore Mein Fun - Lo Mein Noodles with Shrimp, Chicken, Pork, and Vegetables in a Spicy Curry Sauce...

    [​IMG]

    ..and a song by a modern day Soul Goddess, its Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings with "100 Days, 100 Nights":



    I hope everyone's doing well. Feel free to talk about your food and music. I'll be around here for a short while, then its off to bed to watch a few episodes of "Sons of Anarchy" before I pass out cold. Stay sweet, bitches! :uhat:

    Not the biggest fan of Korn or salmon(I only enjoy it raw :dontknow: ), but I have mad respect for anyone who has their own smoker and puts fourth the effort to use it in creative ways.

    Thank you for posting that picture....are those apples over the salmon? If so that's a very creative touch. It might be a good method for smoking pork as well.

    Respect. :hat:

    'm sorry. I hope you get well soon. :sad:

    My brussel srout are one of my specialties and one of my favorite thing to eat.

    Thank you. Here's a tip...mix a shitload of curry powder into Ketchup and dip your fries or sweet potato fries into it. I tried this and became addicted to it.

    That's a great way to serve them. Mine involve a hot iron skillet and bacon grease... :buffet:

    Please do.

    I put on a pot of water to boil. I throw the cast iron in and preheat the oven to 425F...while its heating up, I chop the bottom stems of the sprouts and cut them in half. I throw them in the water for 3 or 4 minutes, until they get slightly pungent. Then drain the sprouts really well in a colander lined with paper towels. I melt the grease in the microwave and toss some of it it in a bowl with the sprouts, a bit of salt and some black pepper. Then I pull the cast iron out of the oven. Pour enough grease to coat the bottom. Then I quickly lay the sprouts cut side down in the bottom of the pan. I sprinkle the loose leaves over the top and put it under a low broiler. I recommend turning them once before they are done. When they are done, lay them on a paper towel to get rid of any excess grease.
