    Can chimney starter damage Weber?

    I always start mine on the grill. It's a grill. It is designed to hold insanely hot coals and flame. Mine was hit by lightning a few years ago and I still use it.

    Blue cheese and pear preserves omelette

    The omelette idea doesn’t work for me. It needs an acid. It works in a salad, though.

    Cooking spray alternatives and how to clean ruined CorningWare?

    Try that Dawn spray stuff. Dawn power something. There are plenty of spray oils in your supermarket that don’t contain lecithin. Look on the shelves above the bottled oils. If he is cognitively impaired it might be better for him to continue using a spray, since he knows how.

    PEI Mussels vs. well, Mussels

    I could literally harvest mussels in the water right next to our house — clams, too, and crabs. But that’s illegal without a license. That said, I’ve cooked many things but never mussels. I’m just not a huge fan.

    Chili crunch vs. crisp vs. crisp with peanuts?

    Chili crisp and chili crunch are the same thing and a zillion manufacturers make it. It’s been all the rage for 2-3 years now. And it’s EXCELLENT! But I’d recommend buying it from a legit maker like momofuku. There is a wild difference in quality out there.

    April 8, 2024 Total Eclipse

    Fairly uneventful here on Cape Cod. It got weirdly dark/sunny and it got a lot chillier. Burlington VT was the New England place to be.

    Cleaning Your Grill

    Yeah. I felt that way, too until I found a wire in my burger. That I had cooked myself. You couldn’t see it. I pulled it out of my mouth before I swallowed it. It’s not paranoia. It’s pretty real.

    My oven crapped out, looking for a new one

    In Boston I have an almost 40 year old Maytag that came with the house. BEST. STOVE. EVER. On the Cape we have a new but not that fancy GE Monogram. It’s great! I love the convection feature.

    Earthquake NJ and NY

    My neighbors on my street say they felt it, but I didn’t. Later, I discovered that cans and bottles and stuff in my pantry and on my counters fell over. There was an earthquake 2 years ago on Cape Cod which sounded like a huge truck hitting something and it shook the house.

    Has anyone used coconut oil to Grease the bread pan

    I’m not sure what you grease the pan with matters. But some coconut oils taste neutral and some taste more like coconut so keep that in mind.

    Cleaning Your Grill

    Oven cleaner. Spray them and put them in a plastic trash bag overnight. But frankly, I’d just heat it up like a mf’er and then scrape like hell. With a scraper and ball of foil. And then I’d carry on. Your grill looks like a million bucks!

    What is the difference between BBQ and smoking?

    I’ve had a Big Green Egg for 6 years or so. It’s a Kamado-style charcoal grill that is used to smoke and grill food. It can hold a pretty exact temp for many hours. I’ve learned a lot by reading and participating in the very active BGE Facebook group. There aren’t a lot of rules… but in...
