Fanning the Flames: Choosing a Fire Starter for Grilling

The charcoal-grilled steak you’ve been craving all week long finally hits your plate hot and ready on a lazy Sunday afternoon. It’s your reward for five long days of earning a living, and it’s the inducement that eases you into another stint of hard labor in the coming days.

Imagine your disappointment when your first bite tastes like this beautiful piece of beef was French-dipped in jet-fuel before being served. The acrid flavor permeates the meat and obliterates every nuance of delicious beefiness that had you salivating just moments before.

Grilled Corn: Lend Me Your Ear

Grilling corn on the cob imbues the tender kernels with incomparable flavors and aroma. The tastes of the sweet corn milk, smoke, and char take corn on the cob out of the usual. Add to that new combinations of toppings that can be spread, sprinkled, or poured and you’re into flavor territory that begs to be explored.

Cut of the Month: Flat Iron Steak

It’s not every day that a new steak comes along. There are, after all, only so many muscles in a cow. However, if you check the encyclopedic MEAT by the Lobels, which was published in 1971, you’ll find no mention of flat iron steak.

Fast-forward to the publication of Lobel’s Meat Bible in 2009 and you’ll find the flat iron right there on page 21. Plus, there’s a delicious recipe for Flat Iron Steaks with Roasted Red Pepper Butter on page 38.

So, where did this steak come from?

How to Make Your Own Bacon

A very good friend of ours once quipped, “Hey honey, let’s have the Chateaubriand and lobster for dinner tonight, and save the bacon for a special occasion.”

Sound absurd? Not so much for die-hard bacon lovers.

The very mention of the word bacon in public is bound to attract attention and start necks craning among those within earshot. To say that we are crazy for all things bacon is a crazy understatement. From delectable to disgusting, the uses of bacon among zealots and zanies alike know no bounds.

But for the serious food adventurer, homemade bacon is the end of the journey that begins with fresh pork belly.
