What would you think is your signature dish?

For me, it's probably BBQ.

BBQ is a genre, not a dish.

Well then, I guess that I don't have one.

You do - you just have to find it within yourself to pick a dish from within your genre... For example, your ABT's are off the hook! Personally I think i have the brisket thing dialed in good!

Not to be boastful, but there are so many dishes that I make well that it's really hard to choose one and say that it is mine. Very few of them are original to me. I modify all of the recipes that I use, but the rule is that you have to add 3 ingredients to call it original and that cannot be just adding or subtract the volume of existing ingredients in a recipe.

These days, my specialty is burnt pots.

Yeah, but you have way too much on your plate this weekend. I was thinking about doing mine Sunday, and my pit should hold 2. You'd have to trim and season it as you like.

Cornish Game Hen.

Olive Oil rubbed into the skin then covered with parsley and garlic salt.

Filled with a ground beef stuffing.

Served with butter/cream cheese/garlic mashed potatoes and either steamed french cut green beans or asparagus.

MMM. Ground beef stuffing - that ought to keep it from drying out too much.
sounds really tasty!

Char siu sausage is great with quail. Wrap a strip of bacon over the breast and glaze with ketjap manis the last 20 minutes of roasting.

Cornish hens make for a great meal. I like to halve and roast them, basting them with a Seville orange marmalade, sesame oil and whisky mixture.

One of my favourite meals consists of a low temperature, slowly roasted rack of pork with a spiced Bourbon and honey glaze. I often serve tumeric and lemon (juice plus zest) enhanced basmati rice alongside, as the lemon flavour makes a nice foil to the overall sweetness of the pork.

twenty years ago I brought home game hens and I was cooking them on the grill. my daughter saw them and said yuck, what are they, I told her that we were having puppies for supper.

Correct. I wouldn't even venture into the same zip code as an eel.

oh they are so good! fry the little bastards and toss them with roasted peppers and fried eggs. Utterly delicious. They also make a great tapa! I can post pictures!

To quote, sort of: The thought of eel can devour the body's flesh more than fever or consumption. (Feel the same about mushrooms in any form).

I love making Cochinita (pork) pibil. It is Yucatán (Mayan) style BBQ pork. Pretty easy to make. I recently tried the Allrecipes.com recipe, and it was AWESOME. Easy to make. Serve with black beans and Mexican white rice.

Smoking a full packer brisket for tomorrow and many days after. K loves roast beef and not so much BBQ, so we get the best of both worlds that way. Helps also to have gotten it on sale for $2/lb. Had to get my raincheck renewed twice to get it at that price.

Eels are just fish that look funny. how do they taste? Yep, that's what counts.

Snails? sorry, I draw some lines. I don't care if they taste just like clams or whatever, I like my food salted, and I've seen salted snails.

BigO

It's too bad. Escargot are really tasty. You taste more garlic and butter than the snails themselves. If prepared properly, the snails should have a slight tooth, but are tough if overcooked.

I almost had sea slug, but they were out. There are just some limits I can't cross. Very few. Nothing unusual,things that many other people can't do, but still, I'm more open minded than most. I won't do lungs, but I've done heart an kidney, and other weird stuff.my problems mostly center on texture and taboo. I never thought that sashimi could be good.

I had razor clams last night in Spain. Brian you saw the pics on FB I think. Out of the shell they look like giant snot. But they taste like the ocean.

Last year they had barnacles, but they were so bleeding expensive I didn't order them.

Eels, I get the gross thing. You can see their bulgy little eyes. But they do taste great. Actually not much flavor at all. Now anchovies, there is some flavor there. Wow.
