    Brisket madness!

    Pastrami for the flat, smoke the point, if you're gonna split it up. But for me, always and forever smoke. It's one of life's finest rituals. I smoked a black angus brisket last week and it was dreamy. It always is.

    That's the whole thing: I was looking into simply leasing/renting a commercial kitchen and randomly wound up potentially being involved with the buildout.

    Full Buildout...

    I am completely aware of where I stand regarding my pack of experience in this area. I called a realtor to get help finding a commercial kitchen to lease/rent. This became the conversation.

    Full Buildout...

    I'm imagining not. The realtor iterated several times that the allowance was for construction. From the looks of it, I may find myself in a situation wherein I'm the consultant and would be responsible for any cost associated with planning the buildout. I havent spoken to the owners regarding...

    Paying the rent...

    For all the owners: what is the current real estate situation? Are the landlords showing leniency in light of the current situation? Has anyone shut down due to unforgiving landowners?

    How How How do you keep produce fresh?

    It would be prudent to gauge your purchasing needs according to demand. Considering the season and the past couple of weeks' sales, try to calibrate your purchases to reduce spoilage.

    The new "Normal" for us all....

    Regardless of the confusion at this time, the fact is that as long as the customer believes that they are being protected, they'll spend their money. How many of us are familiar with the actuality if how kitchens operate? All of us. Hands have never been clean enough. The dishes have never been...

    Freezing mashed potatoes

    What about pre-making stuffed, fried mashed potato balls? Shape and freeze, then bread and fry when ordered? Would one make the mashed potatoes as one regulary does; butter, cream, etc?

    Head and forehead cover

    I have an article on here I wrote several years ago about us and food safety. If anyone's interested, I'll dig it up and link it here again. BUT, if y'all are interested in some REAL entertainment about what's allowed to happen to food before we even get it from our purveyors, get a bowl of...

    BBQ Meats

    So then, in light of our being relegated to to-go or delivery-only, would smoking a brisket, to perfection, resting it correctly, and slicing it ahead of time, holding on a steam table and drizzling in warm brisket fat occasionally would be a decent idea correct? And uncovered, I would assume...

    Brisket: WTH just happened?!

    Supermarket. This is the first time this has happened. Followed the same process I always follow. Built fire to 250F. Seasoned with salt and pepper. Placed meat off heat for proper smoking. The flat weighed 2.5 lbs and had a very thin layer of fat on it; enough that I was confident that it...
