overnight soak in water will help with that saltiness.... looks good!I'm in the tribe, but not practicing. But I have been really serious about celebrating the sabbath recently, in my own ways. Whichever one is thicker would be my gut instinct answer. Ultimately it will be much easier to decide looking at them and choosing the best marbling regardless. Checking for evenness and such.
Corned beef! Only got one and shoot it could be taken down just snacking. Heavy crust of brown sugar. Washed it good. Trimmed it to about 1/8 in all around and rubbed with evoo. Then the sugar and 275 till 195. Super good. Yeah, a bit salty straight up. We usually make fried rice and in this case with tillamook swiss on a plain einsteins bagel. View attachment 622142
Just told the wife to get one for me...great idea Apple!
Cold smoked some cheddar with pecan last Saturday. I probably left it in too long but the bitterness mellowed after a day in the fridge. Good stuff. I haven't been using pecan lately and I'm craving it. Hmmm what should I do with it next?Pecan, fellas, pecan. What's the word?
Those beetles must be really boring if they were able to kill off several cherry trees.When I was in high school we had 3 cherry trees that got killed off by boring beetles. Every time someone on here talks about smoking with cherry I think about all that wood that was just wasted.
You need to try the Urbock if you like the Marzen. My buddies think it's more smokey and malty. They like both but edge out the Urbock. It's also a stiffer drink at 6.5%Since I first tasted it many years ago, the Marzen has been a beer reserved for special occasions. It's just wonderful.
Happy birthday from another 53-yr old.
I had it many years ago. I vaguely remember liking the Marzen better. Might be time to retest thoughYou need to try the Urbock if you like the Marzen. My buddies think it's more smokey and malty. They like both but edge out the Urbock. It's also a stiffer drink at 6.5%
