Not tonight, but last night grilled up some octopi:

http://cooking.nytimes.com/recipes/7375-grilled-octopus

It was terrific. Served with some white beans in garlic & olive oil and sauteed mustard greens. some kind of Portuguese wine I picked up at Whole Foods. Great meal all around.

Wifey made a raspberry/rhubarb pie for dessert.

I have a flank steak marinade that is moderately famous amongst LakemoorFest attendees. Super simple marinade recipe. For every 16oz of flank, use 1/3 cup of kikoman soy, 1/3 cup of olive oil, and 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar. I usually add sea salt, pepper, and garlic salt or cloves to the marinade. Sometimes add a little honey, worchestershire, A-1... :)
Score the meat diagonally, etc...Best with a charcoal char and more medium than rare to get the crunchy bits.

Tried it yesterday with skirt steak and I think it might be better than flank.

I was apprehensive since I've had some poor beercan chicken at BBQs. His first attempt at beercan poultry and with a duck to boot.

How does one screw up chicken? It's so easy to cook.

And I am not a big fan of duck, and I have had it cooked a lot of different ways.

We have duck every Thanksgiving. Ordered it at Chez Paul at Epcot too!

Beercan duck sounds great tho. I was thinking of smoking a chicken for a couple of hours and finishing it as a beercan. Might have to try that soon.

Olive oil and salt on the inside of the bird fixes that.

You can't buy good corn in a store. The stuff at Jewel is always picked too late and are these huge ass ears that are absolutely horrible.

I just found a hook-up at a Farmer's Market with the best corn I've ever had that I didn't pick myself from a field. The key is to get the younger, smaller ears. The kernel rows should be developed but perfectly straight. If they are starting to get crooked then the corn is getting past its prime and losing its pop and sweetness.

A good ear of corn should be able to be eaten raw dog right out of the husk.


Exactly. The smaller ears taste better.

Not sure if anyone on the board has every had any of the Jones Boys stuff.

They were at our farmers market on Saturday and my wife picked me up some Chicken Bacon Ranch brats. Hands down the best brats I've ever had.

Made some shrimp ka-babs last night. They were very good. Sprinkled some Cajun seasoning on about halfway thru the grilling process that spiced it up just a bit, but was not overwhelming.

Round steaks with baked potaters on Monday evening. Taters were a bit undercooked, but the steaks, for being an inexpensive cut of meat, were actually quite good.

I've gotten great corn from a farm stand on that stretch of road, too. Love that area. The frozen custard stand in Elkhorn--Frosty's is the name, I believe--is pretty good, too.

High-quality skirt steak (reasonably thick, not too fatty) is objectively superior to any form of flank steak.

Everyone raves about this marinade with skirt steak:

4-6 dried morita (chipotle) chiles, toasted and soaked in hot water for 20 minutes, then chopped
1/4-1/2 cup dark molasses
Juice of 4 limes, 2 oranges, 2 lemons
4 garlic cloves, pressed
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
Approximately 1 cup olive oil
salt, pepper

Puree ingredients in blender. Place in ziplock bags with 3 1/2- 4 1/2 lbs skirt steak.

Since FavreFan is taking FOREVER to acquire my grill, we have some time to crowd source me a cookbook full of 'go-to' recipes.

Everyone send me their suggestions as to what I should make.

Eventually, I'll be able to compile these into 'The Quintessential Mayonnaise Cookbook - A Series of Slow Cooker, Grill and Microwave Recipes'

Wait, why can't you just go buy your own damn grill?

FavreFan is V.P. of Operations at the Schaumburg Weber facility.

He hooks a brother up.

It was a veiled joke at his comment about the Cubs hitters getting better when it got hotter, it went over his head.
