Looking at his blog Pork and Whiskey, it is clear Rev. BigDumbChimp should be in charge of this thread.

Dunno about having a dinner consisting of nothing but rice.

I mean, it'd seem a bit, uh, incomplete without SOME attempt at vegetables or protein. Seems like kind of a kwashiorkor diet.

Sorry. I've always wanted to use the word 'kwashiorkor'.

I did it for three months.

All I had was rice, pasta, various spices and hebs and such, and occasionally a bit of meat or something that someone left for me. Oh, the joys of having exactly £0.00 in the bank with 3 months of uni to go.

Great blog, reverend!

I'm full right now, but your steak-frites recipe got me hungry all over again.  What kind of oil do you use for cooking the frites?  I ate at Les Halles once, and IIRC, they use peanut oil.

Well. Honestly I sometimes use it only once. I don't make the fries that often and storing the used oil when it's not gettign used causes it to go rancid. So I may get two uses but alot of the time it is only one.

Expensive yes, but I'm a freak for doing it right with the right fresh ingredients and as much of the correct technique as possible.

Well, fly that freak flag high -- I look forward to your next blog entry.  There are still plenty of recipes in Steven Raichlen's How to Grill book I'd like to get to, but I'm happy for another source of inspiration.

For my lunch I cooked some sausages (Richmond, cheap but tasty) and cooked them with onions, spices (cumin, chilli, black onion seeds, corriander), lime juice and yoghurt. It was delicious.

But duck fat really is the best way to do it if you're doing it in small batches....

Currently marinating some ground pork in spicy bbq sauce. In a few hours that will be baked, put on Pepperidge Farm hamburger buns, and served with Heineken.

I want to try some nasal snuff, but I haven't seen any around here (Chapel Hill, NC). I haven't really looked much, though.

Say you want to marinate some meat. What conditions are best? Refrigerated? Out on the counter? For how long?

Chewing tobacco == dipping snuff. I already do that. It's the nasal kind I want to try. Very rare here in the States.

Most recipes I've seen tell you to put marinading meat in the fridge. And depending on how acidic that marinade is, you don't want to soak meat in it for much longer than a couple of hours, in my experience. If the acidity is low and it's mostly herbs and spices, you might want to go with a rub.

I grilled a mean sage-rubbed pork-T the other weekend. Quite good.

Dunno, two hundred years ago there was plenty of it here...

Yep. Nothing says "Welcome to Scotland" like a snack that can cause you to have multiple heart attacks. They also do  deep fried pizza and deep fried haggis.

Addendum. A mars bar here is a Milky Way over across the pond, for those who don't know.

Linky.

How long you marinate the meat depends on a number of factors, including what type it is and how it's been butchered.

If you're marinating some chicken that has already been cut up into smaller pieces for making kebabs, 30 minutes is plenty.

If you're marinating a larger cut of beef, lamb or pork, then give it at least an hour at room temperature, or several hours refrigerated.

Interesting. Scotland sounds a lot like places here in the south eastern US.
