Unsolicited advice, but if I were to guess I'd say you're almost certainly not cooking them long enough. Lower the temperature of your smoker. We're talking 16-20 hours.
I'm very serious about barbecue, and set my alarm so I can wake up in the dead of night and check on the fire. Most people want to get the cooking time below 8 hours so they can start it in the morning and have it ready by dinner, and it just isn't the same. I refuse to finish it in the oven.
That is exactly what I do. I get in the mind set of waking up at 3am to throw it on the smoker by 4 but never actually go through with it so I shoot for 6 hours smoke time and 2 hour wrapped in foil.
I just started working a 10-9 shift at my job. Lunch is an hour at 2:00, but there's no real dinner to speak of, just a 15 minute break around 4:30 and 10 minutes around 7:00. So I need ideas for meals I can eat in under 5 minutes. Just quick things I can rush off to the break room, devour, and get back to work. Or barring that, some dinner shakes I could drink at my desk (snacks aren't allowed, but drinks are, though I'll have to check which one a shake falls under before trying this).
It's getting cold. What's your favorite soups?
It really depends, I don't want to eat one thing 100% of the time.
New England Clam Chowdah is right up there, but then so are Thai soups. There are so many that it would be silly to have to pick just one.
Treat yourself to grilled bratwurst on a quality bun with brown mustard. Sauerkraut is good, too.
>Sauerkraut is good, too.
I can never decide whether i prefer kraut or sauteed onions
Your buns a little short, though I completely agree you should never serve them with hot dog buns. Either serve 2 sausages on a kaiser roll sheboygan style, or 1 on a dedicated brat bun
also, this is the best mustard choice that I have found so far
that bread is basically just so you don't get brat grease and mustard on your hands, basically just a vehicle for delivering meat and condiments to your mouth
If it were a good bun, it'd probably be bigger and not just literally any random bread cut to hold something
So what's your signature dish, /ck/?
What sorts of meats do you usually have with/in your tomato sauce?
sausage, meatballs. if you want something different try pork skin. season with salt, pepper, parsley. simmer in sauce until it's like butter, spread it on crusty garlic bread with vinegar and top with a bit of salad.

>If all the nutrients from a vegetable are lost when you drain the water from the pot, what's the best way to eat them when cooked this way? Just take them out of the pot and deal with the water later?
>What the fuck is tumeric for?
The same as everything else (except no dishwashers), then re-season every season.
Stop being dumb and just make a vegetable soup
Overpowering other tastes (mainly those found in lard)
Is sashimi overrated?
Had the omakase at one of the top places in my non-flyover area, and it was mostly unremarkable. A fascinating experience but I'm not sure I'd get it again.
Note that I'd believe that I'm just a plebian, the weirdest thing I've eaten are either sweetbreads or foie gras. I've also had escargot, but those aren't that fancy.
Yes, it is probably overrated. No, it isn't shit though. It is not going to be a mind blowing experience, but that is sort of the point. It is stripped down simple raw flesh of a particular animal. You get to experience its flavor with little to no frills. There is something to be said for that.
I loves me some raw fish, tuna being my favorite, but really, yeah it's probably an overrated fad food.
That being said, you really don't know what a certain fish tastes like until you try it. It's kinda a hard thing to generalize as the flavor varies so wildly. I'd suggest trying it again
has little caesars gotten better or have other pizza chains gotten worse? i had little caesars and papa johns last week and there wasnt much of a quality difference
haven't had papa johns in a while but from what I remember their pizzas are pretty good. Hopefully they haven't gone down in quality because I really liked their pizza. I don't think ive had little caesars.
What do I make with these ingredients?
Can someone redpill me on canola oil? Is it healthy and fine to eat? And if so how much?
I only ask because I just found out about how some people say its bad. I eat stovetop popcorn cooked in canola oil every day as a snack or dinner if I am lazy, and have for years. I've tried switching to coconut but the taste is different and it is substantially more expensive. I don't really care about the macronutrient difference but if it will give me cancer I will switch to another oil.
Everyone has their vices on things they like to eat unhealthily. For example, chocolate, soda, and butter
However ill recommend you to continue eating canola oiled popcorn as a snack but dont skip dinner or substitute with popcorn it isnt all that nutritional.
I also have been consuming foods cooked in oil as long as i can remember
Most significantly eat more green veggies
Spinach brocolli kale collards lettuce cucumber etcetera
Who here? Al dente ramen?
I usually do them pre-al dente, I don't know what the term for that is. I usually add stuff to the noodles so by doing it that way it gives whatever I add time to cook too without causing the noodles to get soggy or mushy.
i tried to make a crock pot chicken/mushroom soup and it turned out like shit. literally tastes like water.
I took a 2 gallon crock pot,
2 chicken halves with skin and bone
lots of sliced raw mushrooms, jalepenos, habanaros, onion, carrot, garlick and green pepper and balanced it with water
I put it on low for 8 hours and then shredded the chicken
what am i missing? why did this taste like water and fat? why can't i cook?
Never underestimate the browning contribution to flavor, or how reducing adds yumminess.
I don't see salt or peppercorns listed, and no herbs, such as chives, parsley, dill or bay. Herbes du provence even, saffron, lemon, something!
Chicken gets tough cooked that long. I get that you wanted stock or a crock pot meal, but you'll be tweaking it til right.
You probably only needed a splash of water. Chicken has a ton in it already, so do veggies, especially mushrooms.
It pays to brown your meats before you slow cook them, too. More flavor.
Also, did you add any salt or pepper?
I just got a Rice Cooker for christmas, got any good ideas?
I like those one pot dishes you can make with rice cookers.
Sear the outside of your meat of choice, throw it right into the pot with your rice, water, spices, a tiny bit of olive oil and a couple of cloves of garlic then about halfway through cooking, open really quick and throw in your vegetables.
Opening the cooker mid-operation might fuck up the texture of your rice, but honestly I've never had a single issue.
is there really not a sticky for this board?
i need to learn how to cook
