A very modest crop from my lemon cucumber plant, although there may well be more on the way.
Belatedly writing about this device, which I bought at the end of May.
As mentioned in my review of my new LG Legacy 1200 grill, the one thing I wasn’t impressed with was the android app.
I already had an Inkbird Bluetooth Thermometer, but the distance from my BBQ area and the house makes that not ideal for Bluetooth, although I liked the device itself. So I took the opportunity to pass that on to a friend, and splashed out on the newer WiFi & Bluetooth version.
So I had this rack of St Louis Ribs that needed to be used, and couldn’t be frozen, as they had already been frozen by the supplier, and defrosted in transit. I am not a huge fan of pork ribs – they strike me as fiddly and a lot of work for a very low reward, given how much meat you get off them. Having said that, I didn’t want to waste them, and I know other people like them, so I thought I would get some practice in.
A simple ketchup-based BBQ sauce made from pantry ingredients. Good for ribs, sausages and brisket.
I was making a dressing for some salad leaves this lunchtime, and found that – apart from a couple of spray bottles – I was out of oil.
I had one of these yesterday, and it was delightful. Cinnamon-sugar cupcakes made with melted butter. Delicious.
As described earlier, I’d successfully done my first cook on the new pellet grill, by my kitchen door. Soon after, I decided to move it to my BBQ area at the foot of the garden. Not very far, and paved all the way. So I was wheeling it down the garden, and was two thirds of the way there, when the whole grill tilted, and it was only my muscles keeping it stable – all 300lbs of it.
I’ve ended up with this beast of a pellet grill, which is far more than I intended to buy. It is of stainless steel construction, double walled so as to retain heat. It is capable of temperatures from low to 600°F which is much higher than my Traeger would go.
I bought my old Traeger Pellet Grill in 2011, and it has done me well. Even after the controller stopped working, a few years ago, I managed to safely rewire it with a simple relay and timer mechanism, and retain much of its function. But I knew I would eventually replace it with a new grill.
I love pancakes of all sizes – crepes, american style, drop scones. But, despite a series of pans purchased for the purpose, I’ve never had much luck cooking them myself. In the end, I decided that the problem was with my stove and not me, and I gave in and bought a Duronics Crepe Maker.
