19. Re: Best roast Turkey Aug 8, 2011, 20:56 Lesaonar
 
I was watching Alton Brown and he did a really cool roasted turkey. So major props to him for making me want to switch it a bit. You can brine the bird, as he did, but I didn't find it necessary. Thought I'd share this since there are other foodies here that enjoy good turkey. I was a professional cook for 15yrs.

Turkey, completely thawed or fresh
Carrots, onions, celery, apples
Thick cut bacon
Olive oil
Smoked salt
Cracked pepper
Sage
Chicken or Turkey stock.


Preheat oven to 500F/260C

Wash the turkey, inside and out. Pat dry.

I like to put the bird on a stand in the roasting pan, to keep it out of the juices, and place the carrots, onions and celery (Large chunks of veg) around the stand. You can also just put the bird on the chopped veg if you want.

Put about 3 cups of stock into the roasting pan. I recommend Better Than Bouillon concentrated paste.

Drizzle the bird with olive oil and massage the bird so it's totally covered. Sprinkle smoked salt, cracked pepper and sage on the skin. Cover the breast and thigh/legs in bacon slices. Stuff the cavity with apples.

Put the bird in the oven, uncovered, for the 1st 30 mins. Drop the temp to 250F/120C for the remainder of the cooking time and cover the bird until it's cooked (internal temp of 161F/71C).

Let the bird rest, covered in tinfoil shiny side down, for 30 mins or so.

The drippings that are left are mmm mmm good!

I am not sure how having the grill closed is a problem.

Never leave the grill open when grilling. You only open it when you flip....

Depends on what you're doing. Lid on if you want the grill to be an oven (whole turkey/chicken, pork shoulder etc or if you're smoking anything), lid off if you're just grilling (steaks, chicken/turkey pieces, hamburgers etc). For grilling you want just the direct heat below, not completely surrounded like with lid on.

Edit: Don't forget to use a wet pan if you're using the lid on method, otherwise you'll end up with dry meat.

ok I am going to throw something out there and it is up to you guys to think about this for a minute. Do you know how much blood was shed before nukes was created? I have a shocking fact for you people, nukes have saved more lives than taken. Nukes keeps idiots in check. With that said, go do the numbers...and open your minds...Sounds unbelievable doesn't it? Swords probably have killed more people than Nukes...so before you people hope on the bandwagon and believe everything...research it out...With that said, grow the hell up...

To be more precise, those who've fought for the 'glory of god' have killed more than any other mytholgy. Nonetheless that doesn't make the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki any less horrific, not to mention the people of bikini atoll who lost their lands and livelyhood so the US could test their nukes.

I really don't understand the people picking sides in this fight.

It's called a sense of self entitlement. You generally see this in people with narcissistic personality disorder.

3. Re: hash browns Mar 26, 2011, 16:24 Lesaonar
 
One of the best ways to dry the potatoes is just put them in the fridge for an hour or 2 on a cookie sheet, especially if you've steamed them 1st. If you boil them you'll need even more time. Steam>boil.

If we're talking the shredded type of hashbrown. Shred your potatoes onto a clean cloth, pull up the 4 corners and start twisting/squeezing out as much moisture as you can.

Too many people whinge at sushi because it's raw fish, mostly due to the flavor they remember as a child.



Or that whole "worms" deal...


Worms don't survive flash freezing, which all sushi grade fish is.

Sushi>all. Too many people whinge at sushi because it's raw fish, mostly due to the flavor they remember as a child. My mom used to make horrible cooked fish dishes, which turned me of all but Fish and Chips for some time. The wife turned me onto sushi, she kept trying to get me to even just eat a small taste of negitoro (raw tuna and green onion). I eventually gave in and haven't looked back. Still won't eat a lot of cooked fish, due to taste and smell, but their raw counterparts are totally delicious!

Heh, the beta wasn't good at all.

The Friends and Family test for the MMO version was pretty much the same thing. Not shocking that the person I know that worked there, left Cheyenne about 6 mo before they started seriously failing.

That's not any less confusing. How will they turn it into an MMO?

Preorder the single/multiplayer version and you get a free copy of the MMO version when it's ready. The 2 are separate games. Don't know how that was even remotely confusing if you understand english...

The real shocker is that the British government extradites its own citizens to a foreign nation. that the British populace even accepts such a law to exist is astounding. No developed nation (germany, france) extradites its own citizens, EVER.

Education is a wonderful thing. The US has extradition treaties with almost every '1st world' countries.

Treaties in force jan 1 2000

News Comments > MS EA Takeover Rumors

One machine, many players.

All on one screen so the 4 that are playing know exactly where the other 3 are. Wow that sounds like fun...NOT.

Yeah, there are LAN parties and gaming conventions, but those have a much higher barrier to entry than walking to your living room, plugging in a few controllers, and having some fun.

I'm not just talking LAN/Conventions like Quakecon. I'm also talking home based LAN parties. I hold a weekly LAN (8-10 people) at our home and have been doing so for almost 10-15yrs now. We setup in the dining and living rooms and play all weekend long, with the odd sleep/food break. We also hold LAN's at work all the time. I have numerous friends that do the exact same thing every week.

You make far too many assumptions regarding the death knell of PC gaming. Do you seriously think an entity like MS would invest the millions of dollars they have into the 'Games for Windows' campaign, knowing that it's just wasted money? Seriously, look at the issue logically, and you'll see PC gaming isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

PC gaming isn't dying anytime soon, sorry to break it to you.
