I tried to grill a steak on a gas grill last night. My buddy told me that I'm supposed to put the cover on when I grill. Is that true? Most of the grill process last night had the steak uncovered. Then, at the end I put the cover down. I wonder what the impact is on meat. Anyway, the steak turned out very nicely. Medium rare, just as I wanted.
There didn't seem to be enough of a crust on the steak, but that was my fault. I think some more pepper would solve that problem. Minor quibble; the beef was delicious.
Isn't there a special taste to New York Strip? I can't define it but it's a tinge of flavor that reminds me of champagne... a high quality taste to that strip that I can't identify on any other steak. Perhaps it's a particular freshness.
Got this link to an article in the OC Register which had a *paywall.* I am NOT paying extra dollars to go read something from the OC Register, try again.
Still gotta finish off the last of the Bludso's this morning. Barbecue keeps, but only for a few days.
I've always thought of sushi as "deli meat for fish."
This seems like a good day for a cookie.
I saw in the last few weeks National Hot Dog Day, National Fried Chicken Day, and National Ice Cream Day. Do we have a national peach day coming up? It's gotta be out there.
That was basically all I had today, so I leave you all with an episode of "The Lost Society." It's my fake sitcom I wrote a decade ago. Three episodes posted up to now, and now we have our fourth, but bear in mind we were posting them out of order. Anyway, enjoy! Here it comes, with more after the jump....
