    "PoorMan's - Burnt Ends" Project

    Here it is ... A plate of tasty ... It's good. ... Tender and tasty. They really sucked up the sauce. That was a 50/50 proposition. It didn't have real bark like the first but the seasoning was really good. That is what sucked up the sauce. Being that it had more of a steak-flavor to the...

    "PoorMan's - Burnt Ends" Project

    Well ... It seems OK but still a bit wet on top. Not real barky but really highly seasoned. I threw it back into the oven for 15-minutes to dry it up. That did sorta work. When I pulled it out I let it rest for another 15-minutes. It cut up nicely, easier than the first. A funny thing...

    LOL. I just pulled it out. ... resting for half an hour. I learned another lesson. ... Don't wrap it in the paper it came in. It's not gonna be big enough to get a good wrap ... probably. Mine wasn't tight enough because I see some juice in the bottom of the pan. ... We'll see.

    OK then. ... I pulled it and the temp broke past 160* (on my simple $4 thermometer anyway). You can still see a little dry spot on the corner. I wish that wasn't there. I gently painted on a butter / woosty sauce blend. Wrapped ... and going back in. ... at 250* (I think/hope) ... for 2...

    "PoorMan's - Burnt Ends" Project

    OK ... We've got a situation that could be because of a coupla different things. ... It's been a coupla hours past the planned 4, and internal temp is only +/- 155*. ... I'm thinking that could be because my oven can't keep a low temp of 225*. OR ... 225* is not really enough heat to get the...

    "PoorMan's - Burnt Ends" Project

    OK then ... So much for the "getting up early" idea. Here we go ... "Episode #2". Looks pretty don't it. This time I'm going with the basic, standard, common, everybody uses it, most found in Google recipes rub combination. ... S&P, paprika, onion and garlic. Two(2) common ingredients I...

    WOW ... since this afternoon at 'da Jewels, this has become a suck project. It was all sunshine and balloons until the on-sale $1.99/lb. chuck roast became the $5.99/lb. regular price chuck roast. At least it's a nicer, although larger cut. I was aiming for 3+ lbs. but this one turned out to...

    "PoorMan's - Burnt Ends" Project

    OK ... so the more videos I watch ... the more my head explodes. So many of the vid-guys do so many of the same things ... BUT they leave one thing out from other guys. ... Apparently there is not just one expert way to make these fake-faux-poorman's burnt ends. I'm also getting sick that some...

    OH YEAH ... PLUS ... this fat is even better than the fat from my wife's pork chops ... (I'll deny I ever said that). brianshaw ... Watch the SV video. ... It's interesting. I'd love to try the finished product. He claims it's "med-rare". Medium rare chuck roast is a real stretch, but I'd...

    "PoorMan's - Burnt Ends" Project

    Here we go ... END PRODUCT ... I was happy. I'm surprised how well the bark turned out. I learned a lesson about the binder / rub relationship. There were however, some issues. First off ... I think I may have over-cooked it. That could be the reason for the falling apart. Secondly ...

    "PoorMan's - Burnt Ends" Project

    Here it is out of the oven after being covered. ... It's been resting for half an hour. You can't see from the way I placed it ... but there are (3) parts there. It's falling apart on its own. Any other time I would turn this into "BBQ Pulled Beef" and call it a day. It was not at all easy...

    brianshaw ... Don't confuse me. Are you talking about the SV vid? ... I'm NOT following any (1) video. I've watched maybe (20). There are some things I like from many, some things that crack me up and some things that I can't figure out yet. YouTube is really being a wiseass to me. Some vids...

    Look ... I'm sure they're really cool. It's a nice conceptual way to cook, and I've seen some very nice dishes come from using a S-V. I watched a vid of a guy that makes these Faux-burnt-ends. The looked absolutely great ... BUT ... they were in the SV for 36-hours. That's nuts.

    "PoorMan's - Burnt Ends" Project

    I've noticed a coupla things on the videos that seems really goofy-stupid (yeah ... coming from Mr.Expert). Lots of these guys use absolutely the wrong knives ... types of knives I just don't like ... or knives that have a hard time cutting anything (DULL). Some guys though are using nice...

    "PoorMan's - Burnt Ends" Project

    OK ... after 3 hours I wasn't all that crazy about the result. The internal temp was just over 160* and it wasn't really barky. I gave it another hour. I pulled it out and checked the temp again and it was over 165*. I mopped it over with the "binder-rub" and poured maybe half of the can of...

    "PoorMan's - Burnt Ends" Project

    OK ... so I've started the project. Here are the ingredients I'm going with: I couldn't find/get my usual Weber Seasonings so I went with the 2/$3 McCormicks. Some guys, about half, use a binder to hold on the rub. Most all used yellow mustard. One guy used olive oil and another used...
