    What's Cooking?

    11 pm and i just finished a duck and goose liver pate for a new years eve charcuterie plate i am putting together tomorrow. Going to wait until it chills to really give it a taste as thats how it will be eaten. Had a friend over last thursday who is a big deer hunter and getting into waterfowl. Claims he doesnt like deer really other than jerky or summer sausage. MAYBE a smoked backstrap. Did herb coated loin in the cast iron and finished in the oven and topped with a red wine reduction, seared duck breast shot that day with a smear of rough blackberry jam, miso chili brussels sprouts and a nice cauliflower puree. Made pho from scratch last weekend for the wife and her coworkers who said thats what they wanted for their kindergarten team christmas party / game night. A nice 2 day affair but holy crap was it good. Lastly a picture of a fire steak done with sous vide. 2 hours at 122 then finished and basted in a cast iron skillet.

    Been using my sous vide a ton lately, last endeavor was confit'd duck thighs. Absolutely worth the day long cure, and 12 hour cook at 165 or so. Made GREAT tacos with some cilantro, shredded greens, hoisin, and sriracha. Couple days ago I wrapped up 4 gooses breasts worth of pastrami. Cured for 3.5 days then smoked. Was having trouble keeping the temp up so after an hour I finished in the oven. Unfortunately I didn't hear my thermometer beep and they got about 20 degrees too hot. Next time I think I am going to cure them, then cook in the sousvide for 8 hours or so, chill then smoke to get that on there and not over do the temp. Should make the stuff even better.
  3. Anyone have any idea what this feller is?

    We had our annual friends Christmas/Thanksgiving party this weekend. I was put in charge of appetizers, and helped my wife with the green bean casserole and deviled eggs. I made a pair of crostinis- Made crisps with a french baguette and had two variations 1. Parsnip and shallot puree base, a couple slices of med rare seared duck breast, blackberry preserves, and topped with some rosemary. 2. Honey whipped goat cheese, shaved radish and arugula, seared duck breast and topped with pickled mustard seeds Both turned out fantastic and a bunch of people who claimed they didn't like duck were going back for extras. Wife did the standard deviled eggs, and green bean casserole from scratch with mushrooms instead of the standard kind with cream of mushroom soup. Will definitely be doing those apps again!
  5. A few years back I got drawn for Pass on Thanksgiving, and Montrose on the day of one of my biggest meetings of the year.. Safe to say I didn't get to use either. This year I'll be in Austin for my step sister's wedding... selfish of her, I know. Half the time I hunt with guys who aren't the most experienced or don't have a ton of stuff. To make ease of setting up, and make sure I get help carrying everything I switched all of my decoys over to Texas rigs instead of wrapped up with strap weights.. Well still using the strap weights but they are now texas rigged and I can tell someone to just grab that group and toss where I tell you to toss. However making and crimping 4.5 dozen worth of dekes hasn't been fun.
  6. Had a big flock of specks above me on Monday, couple of V's, all said and done was probably close to 200 of them flying over the KC area. Never even seen them out hunting but dang do I want to kill a few.

    I've been fighting a bad headcold lately and took a few days off work. Had some time to myself at home and thought I'd make something warm and a touch spicy to help clear everything out. served over some steamed rice and naan and with a carrot and zuchini mix in some tomato sauce to bring it all together. Made some butter chicken that was a mix of 3 or 4 recipes I found online, how I usually do my stuff I look up as I like to take what seems to be common and what I like best from each individually. Turned out great, even if I had to go to 3 stores looking for garam masala and never found any fenugreek. 3 days of eating on the stuff has proved its definitely worth making again. I love Indian food and the wife is indifferent. Since she liked this I'll get to sort that itch a little more often now. I was even told that may take the place of a few night's meals this winter that would have been pot roast or chili.

    I finally got the ground turkey legs and thighs out of the freezer from this Spring. Decided I wanted to make some sausage from Rinella's cookbook. 2.5 pounds turkey, 14-16 oz. bacon ground in with it, an onion, two honeycrisp apples, (I added some garlic), S&P, cinnamon, brown sugar, thyme, lemon zest and I didn't have nutmeg, so I used some all spice. Mix all the ground meat, spices, and cooked and cooled onions, garlic, and apples together. Form patties, and vac seal to save. Tried some and they are a PHENOMENAL alternative to normal breakfast sausage, the spices sweeten it up a bit, enough fat keeps them together and not dry like a straight turkey sausage. My dad is in the dakota's right now pheasant hunting and half the guys there don't love pheasant meat so I may be getting a few dozen pheasants coming my way to experiment with here before too long.

    No pictures as I got called in to work.. Last night did a seared and braised pork loin with fennel, yellow onion, and apples. Seared pork (coated with a thin layer of dijon, salt and pepper, thyme, and rosemary), removed and sauteed vegetables and fruit. Added a cup of white wine, splash of Worcestershire, balsamic vinegar, and garlic for the braise and topped to 3/4 up the loin with stock. Served slices of the pork over top of a bed of mashed garlic cauliflower and topped with braising vegetables and reduced sauce. Something that cooked long, but came together easy was super great and worth 20 minutes of prep time for a dinner. Will absolutely do again.
  10. I'm late to the party.. I run a couple of streamer rods, lines are somewhat interchangeable based on what I am doing. TFO 8 BVK, and a Redington 7Wt Torrent. I fish 200, and 250 Grain streamer express lines. for smaller stuff I fish a handful of cheap sinking leaders that are only 5 foot long that I bought a few years back, good for a 5 or 6 wt. swinging leeches or something and I prefer it to stacking shot and working about breaking a rod because of it. The 7 wt. and 200 grain line can fire into the backing with a 8 inch double deceiver on 2 or three false casts if you are double hauling your keester off.
  11. I wish I was mechanically inclined to know what that meant? What would be the "hub." Told ya I was dumb.
  12. Got a motor question for @fishinwrench or anyone who is able to answer. Boat is a 15' 3" '88 Skeeter pushed by a 70 HP two stroke Tohatsu. About a week ago I was coming out of a creek and bumped something obviously with just the skeg of the motor or just the prop. Felt a small bump but didn't hit hard enough to kill the engine or anything. really seemed pretty minor as I was just idling. With lower water I probably would have seen what was out in the middle of the creek bed. Ran around the small local lake for a few laps at full power, as I pulled back to the ramp i had to go in and out of gear and reverse several times to avoid some dingledicks that were swimming IN the boat ramp from a jetski as I was approaching directly into the sun. At one point when I went to put into gear (forward or reverse) I get power to the engine, but no push in either direction or prop spin. I have checked the choke and the throttle cables, both appear to be in working condition. When I removed the prop on the inside of it there is some rubber looking teeth that bite around a toothed shaft coming out from the lower unit. Both the teeth on the inside of the prop and the shaft are intact with now issues. Was told that it could be a shear pin. Removed the shaft to find a couple of gears, and a pin that came out of the center of a cylindrical piece of metal with gears that would translate power to the prop. When I pulled that shaft a substantial amount of oil/grease came out as well along with what looks like a pin of some sort (6-10 mm in diameter(rough guestimate), it was flat on one end and slightly rounded on the other. I believe it came out from inside the cylinder that is hollowed out? ) and a single ball bearing. Is the grease in this location indicative of an issue or is it supposed to be there and need to be replaced when the gear shaft is inserted back (I don't know if this is the name of it). Just trying to figure out where my problem lies in getting power to the motor, gas flowing, but unable to generate any power to the prop. I'll be taking it to a kid who works for me tomorrow that can take anything apart and fix it (does all of our city truck repair, has rebuilt a few ATV engines and does all our mower engine maintenance as well. He has done some small time stuff and I'd like to start with him before i end up paying money at a marine shop if it is a simple fix, and I am just not mechanically inclined, as I would like to be able to fix this same issue in the future should it arise again.. Because let's be honest.. this boat and motor are older than I am. Thanks in advance for any possible insight. If pictures are required just let me know and I can try to get the grease wiped off everything to try and get a picture.
  13. Go to a fly shop and buy the some cheap serrated tying scissors. Cut real tight and have cut loose braid for me with no trouble. Serration helped i thought. I had a few pairs of MFC scissors and 1 got put into the bass gear kit.
  14. Hey now... 194. That car has driven to vegas, texas a couple times, colorado a few times and everywhere in between. Left the lot with 72 miles. I will have this bad boy for a while. Got a great deal on an 18 TRD pro with 5300 miles that they could make work with our monthly budget, and we definitely arent rich. Last year i started duck hunting and killed just over 3 dozen. This year i killed 9. I would like to shoot more as well. This baby will at least let me pull my boat, and haul my canoe a crap ton easier too.
  15. Well... After 11 years and 194,700 miles my Mitsubishi lancer has maybe died on me and i havent been able to source the issue over the last two weeks.... stepping up to a 2018 tundra I guess it was time for a new grocery getter and decoy hauler Itll be a heck of a lot easier to haul around everything i need, and twice as expensive as well. From small to huge.
