My only guess is warped band. Gonna be hard to find until it happens again.

Could be. It's only the third seal failure I've had in two years. Two failures in this one batch. The band didn't feel quite right when I put it back on.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


So, would the section include actual BBQs and Smokers? There's great interest in that & recipes often get added.

So this is what the new section will be named?

How about: BBQ, Grilling, Meat & Fish Smoking

A place to discuss techniques, tools, sauce, rubs, favorite smoking woods and related stuff. Also to show off your work and share recipes.

I like the smoking fish, I have never tried smoking fish but have a friend who does and he loves it. We had a good friend who lived in Alaska who sent us a case of smoked King Salmon that he had caught, smoked and canned. Talk about fantastic, it was out of this world good.

Would tools include an actual Smoker or BBQ? Sorry to keep asking. I don't know if that's considered an appliance or what. I would interpret a tool as something like a pair of tongs or a thermometer.


Dictionary didn't help with a word, but came across this:


“The story of barbecue is the story of America. Settlers arrive on great unspoiled continent. Discover wondrous riches. Set them on fire and eat them.” Vince Staten, Real Barbecue

I think everything and anything to do with grilling and smoking will be
discussed in the new section.
We bought a smoker just to smoke fish (salmon) It was a cheap smoker,
it was about 35.00 bucks....We tried several times to use it, but each
time it was a disaster. It smokes like a barn fire, huge pillows of black smoke... .
Everything tasted like burned wood. It finally ended up curbside.

I bet there is a way to create a smoker in a regular BBQ...using a pan
filled with wood chips, cover it with aluminum foil, place the fish on
a rack, set the BBQ on low ...and just wing it!
This is something we can get into in the new section...

Absolutely yes, I think that is the intent.

TK I know there are various ways to do smoking. I will have to research them some for pics so when this section gets going I will attempt to post about some of them. Particularly the things you mentioned here.

I want a Tandoori oven!


I think Big Jim has probably been smoking meat most of his life. He could probably think of something, Two Knots.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


You would be amazed what some people make smokers out of, old refrigerators barrels; and a bunch have made smokers out of all wood. But, a lot of those that are wooden are cold smokers instead of cooking smokers.

I haven't been smoking all my life but have for a bunch of years.

I am going to email Cricket and let her know what was decided to name the new section. I will try to move as many BBQ and smoker posts into the new section as I can. I may need your help to post links that you have found so we can get them all in one place. I sure do appreciate y'all.

Ok I'm interested in tandoor cooking also. Here is a DIY version. I saw another years ago but I guess that link is no longer available.

Yes there are lots of ways and I'm interested in cold smoking. Pork belly, pork jowls, fish, cheese, whatever.

I saw that under images. I must have researched it in the past, because I know there's a risk of the clay pots exploding. It has to be greatly resistant to heat & a clean clay or similar. You never know what weird chemicals/minerals are in the clay pots.


I used to use a whole chicken, slathered with Tandoori sauce, on a small Hibachi grill, with the chicken covered with foil. ( I had a hillbilly mother & hobo father. ) Neighbors would come out of the woodwork to see what smelled so good.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


I was going to post my last adventure here, but, off to the new post I go.

But I do want to post his.

My wife is Part of the Rotary for our town. And, they are very active. This past weekend, the rotary was asked to "walking Taco's" at an even at the high school so the incoming senior class would have money to do a trip to Cost Rica. The Rotary would donate the proceeds from the event to the seniors who were going to do all the work. All the meat was donated as well as the Frito's, cheese,tomatoes and onions. All the rotary members had to do was cook, chop, slice and dice.

Well, my wife was give 20 lbs of burger to make into taco meat. And, she subtlety asked me what would be the best way to do it. Knowing that I would take over. Thank goodness we have a large multiburner gas stove. Not a commercial wanna be, but darn good.

I also have a 14" frypan and a 5 qt saute pan. We hooked up the large serving oven (a Nesco roaster I think) and put some water under the pan and started frying up.

We were able to fry the ground beef in 5 lb batches. I have learned to crumble the meat while putting it in the pan so it helps the protein break up into small pieces. And I use a potato masher as well. We got each 5 20# batch cooked, de-fatted, seasoned and into the big cooker in about 40 minutes.

I skimmed off almost 4 cups of liquid (before the seasoning and water) from the cooked meat and put it into a fat separator. I put the juices back into the meat and I was left with over 2 cups of fat from the ground beef.

I suggested to my wife that she give some to our pups, thinking she would give 2 tablespoons to them. She gave them a bout a 1/2 cup each. Thank god her job is to clean up the dog poop!!!

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


The one I saw and had a link to was a regular tandoor pot and the person was building a place to use it in his yard. A square inclosure filled with sand to hold the pot. The sand surrounded the cooking pot as I recalled. It's been many years ago and I lost the link a long time ago. For what it's worth.
