    Homemade Sausage Soup

    1 (1lb ish) package of Italian sausage links - often have in my freezer. Mild and hot both work well
    1 finely chopped onion
    Crumble sausage and brown with onion in stockpot

    Add one large can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes and one can equivalent of chicken broth.

    Bring to a boil. Once boiling add 1/2 cup ortzo pasta and desired herbs/spices, reduce to a summer and 20 minutes later...eat.

    I think make this practically once a week since it is so easy and it's all pantry/freezer stock in my house.

    I was at Walmart today and they have a compact Blackstone flattop for $119 cdn. Says it cooks 9 chicken breasts, 9 pancakes, etc...

    How much are the large ones with legs?

    Search Blackstone here...

    Www.slickdeals.net

    They pop up on walmart clearance pretty often. There is a 17" tabletop that's been as low as $50. They also have a 22" with legs that was recently $97. Some stores have a 36" pro model (last year's model) for as low as $150.

    Quoted from Jaybird815:

    They make the best burger! Do you use a press?

    Sort of. I put them on the griddle in balls. Then after a bit of juice starts to pool around the base of the ball, I smash them with a spatula. To keep it from sticking, put some wax paper between the meat and the spatula.

    If you want real melty cheese, get a cover. Toss the cheese on. Squirt a little water next to the burger and cover.

    #157 1 year ago

    If you order from Blackstone direct, you can get the 36" model with additional accessory side shelf for $299. No shipping, and no tax to Illinois.

    For the uninitiated, if I've already got a decent Weber gas grill, is there a reason to buy the Blackstone vs. pulling out the grates and dropping in a griddle accessory of some kind? I'm sure there's a reason, but having a second grill taking up space on the patio isn't calling my name if I can avoid it.

    That said, the allure of outdoor cooking for breakfast and brunch is calling my name. Maybe I'll break out the old Coleman camping stove with griddle attachment ...

    #159 1 year ago

    Forgot my smash burger photos on the flat top. So tonight we had pizza.

    Glad everyone is getting into the flat tops!

    Made gluten-free pizza. If you don't want it flat St Louis style you have to bake it yourself. Hands down best brand I found so far. Takes two 30 minute sessions of rising in the bowl and then rising on the pan, but it actually turns out quite well. For extra flavor at a little bit of cornmeal in the mix and cornmeal on an oiled Pizza pan. My girlfriend has celiac disease. Gluten-free is not my idea of a good time.

    I just did exactly this. With the Traeger and my knock off green egg the gas grill hasn't been used much. Weber makes a flat top specifically for my grill. I think it was around $80. It replaces one of the grates (half the grill). I will report back.

    I bought the Blackstone 22” table top griddle a few months ago. Really been using it the past couple of weeks but I think I’m going bigger and buying the 36”. I got the 22” portable at Costco for $75, then bought an adapter for $10 to allow me to hook up a large propane tank.

    Not my actual photos.

    We used to make a spinach salad with just about the same ingredients but I believe some hard boiled eggs and red onion were in the mix.

    For us Yankees, if it’s deep fried, it’s Southern.

    In all honesty it was just Tyson frozen chicken fingers and frozen creamed spinach.

    Can’t say it was the best meal I’ve whipped up for myself during quarantine but at least my whole apartment still smells like the alley behind a fry stand.

    #171 1 year ago

    Thanks for explaining I had all kinds of thoughts what the green stuff was. Not gonna lie my diet does include the spinach but not the chicken but I would have definitely grubbed on that chicken.

    I find the different approaches to burger cooking on a grill fascinating.

    Normally I make the patties a wee bit over normal size and do a 4 finger press in the center of each. Place it on the grill divot side up; that way as it cooks the juice is retained in the center of each patty. Then when you flip it the grease drains off and you are left with a mostly cooked and still juicy burger. This also helps it to retain it's patty shape.

    Does anyone own a Roccbox for pizzas? I’ve been eyeing one for like 6 months but haven’t pulled the trigger yet.

    Wow, that's expensive! My wife mentioned some guy on shark tank pitched a decent, cheap pizza oven. It's called bartello. Under $300 she said?

    Because of covid my wife thinks this is going to last at least a year. I'm watching YouTube vids of guys building a smoker/pizza oven combo. I'm tempted to take the plunge this summer as a fun project. Pour a frost safe foundation and brick a pizza oven and smoker in one. I'll cover it so it can be used in cold months. My neighborhood will smell awesome year round

    That is intersting... It took a long time for me to do the egg grill thing, but that was the best move ever made. As far as grilling goes. Jaybirds flat top also wants to make me spend a few bucks.

    Had another go at the ribs today. Traeger smoker using How to BBQ Right channel on youtube for directions. His videos are great. Everything I've made from his channel has been fantastic. I used his rubs and sauces today, and I also left it in a little longer than I thought I should have. I watch enough of his videos, I figured I would support the store. I bought a shirt too. With all this eating I probably should have ordered a XXL. The smoke ring wasn't as defined as my last try, is it because I seasoned them a little more? I'm not sure if it was the cut of meat, or the rub, or the extra cook time, but these were amazing.

    I love Chinese sausage, the bright red ones you can put on the BBQ. I tried finding a recipe to make them, and everything pointed at these odd dried sausages. Very different. I saw them at Costco so i figured I'd give them a try. I tried tossing them in the frying pan, and they were ok, a little strange. Today I added them to my Zojirushi cut in half and steamed them with the rice. I chopped them up after the cook and mixed them in. Delicious!

    I love it when a plan comes together! Pineapple slicer from Amazon shows up early, ripe pineapples make it into the pickup grocery order, and we scored coconut cream in the fallback Target pickup order. Tasted fantastic, and good fun to pop up with these on a Zoom happy hour this evening.

    Quoted from djreddog:

    I do. That’s how I normally make pizzas. The Rocbox has a thermometer under the stone that is very useful.
    In my pizza pictures you see I’m using the Rocbox peal.
    I use caputo pizzarea flour for the Rocbox and Caputo Americana flour for cooking in
    the oven.
    My oven pizza turns out crunchy and pizza in the Rocbox is light with a puffy crust and usually a floppy center.
    You gotta be on you’re toes cooking in the Rocbox turning the pizza every 30 seconds as the back of those small ovens is very hot. I get mine ripping hot and turn it down to low when the pizza goes in and use the timer on my phone trying to cook it for 3 minutes.

    20lbs of pork. It took 14hrs on the smoker. I love my modded GMG Jim Bowie. Best grill purchase we've ever made... hope all of y'all are having a good Easter!
