I had some leftover chicken and the temperature is falling. (I had to where jeans and flannel today!!) So a classic Chicken Soup with Orzo. It is really tasty and will be even better tomorrow.

Not today, but tomorrow - a couple of our friends are having a pig roast. My buddy Darren and I are the pit masters. Last night I made a rub of paprika, smoked paprika, roast garlic powder, celery salt, black pepper, coriander and some hot ground chili powder. It got delivered to the brewery today at noon and taken to the downstairs walk in. After work we had a couple of beers then got the sawzall out and cut down the backbone then splayed it out. Next we rubbed the inside then put it back in the bag till tomorrow. It's getting cooked in what they call a "China Box" with the fire radiating down. When we turn in over to crisp up the skin it will get a layer of smoked salts - alder and cherry. Those are the kidneys in the foreground - they'll be a treat.

Looking good!

There used to be a Chinese restaurant up the street that actually served Chinese food, not Chinese American. They had a pork kidney stirfry that was quite tasty!

It went very well today. We got the beast on at 10am and it was ready by 4:30. We pulled most of it till a storm system moved in and some of the guys set up a popup over the work table. When we flipped it we scored the skin and rubbed it with smoked salt then put the coals back on till it was 160F inside. It was delicious and here is the finished product.

OK, the veg dish is easy
IMG_20211016_171033.jpg

Egg plant, yellow pepper, chili pepper, red and brown onion, and the leek of them, all fresh from the garden and some ginger and fish sauce.
Onions were sauteed slowly, then moved to stir fry heat for the remainder.
How's that for fusion?

Meat sort of resembled rendang initially, made from beef rib. This was left over and got a lot of tamarind added, so it ended up with a nice tang and some sauce.

Thanks butzy. Knew it was good!!! The veg is what initially caught my eye. Rendang and tamarind on the beef is also right up my alley, oh yeah!

Wasn't going to cook tonight, but might have to now!
