This is the first week that we're getting produce in our CSA that isn't green leafy things or storage items from last year. Kinda stoked.

I made a stonefruit bbq sauce to go with dinner last night. Was good, will eat again.

(Peaches and apricots from the back yard, cherries from the store)

It's likely because they are being harvested more slowly and thus older. thanks to covid

The only place where I have not seen a dip in quality over the last couple months is the farmers market, or going directly to the farm itself and buying from their roadside stand.

I noted sometime in late April or early May that I took a drive through local farm country, and there were dozens and dozens of acres of unpicked produce just rotting in the field.

Definite supply chain issues. Buy local when you can.

I bought blackberries (which aren't cheap) yesterday AM. Went to have some with lunch today and they were already getting moldy on the bottom. The hell man.

I know next to nothing about this and have always bought the $50 cheapo from Walmart to make hamburgers, etc...

I'm in the market for a next-step-up grill (charcoal preferably) top end price would be $250.00.

Any ideas?
I’ve had my Weber kettle grill for about 15 years and would definitely recommend.
Concur for sure. 22" master touch. Just such a great purchase and works very well for smoking too.

I grabbed a 40oz tomahawk ribeye today. Going to make it for our anniversary Monday with some scallops.

Should I sous vide or reverse sear on the pellet grill?
It's about 2 inches thick.

I'm guessing you paid a good bit of money for that.

You know my recommendation. :wink:

38 dollars. 13.99pp.

My only hesitation to SV is... How the Sam f do I finish a piece of beef that's a foot and a half long?

Really want a tomahawk, but can’t justify paying for all that bone!

I’d slow and low in the oven and then sear on a screamin hot grill.

Made a sauce and have a KC style rub from the local meat market. I'm excited to see how this goes. First attempt

Maybe think that through on the front end, Chief. ;)

Also, wouldn't that be your question with any non-SV cooking method?
