yepp but i also know i will have a blast for my money
Roy Choi's recipe from his L.A. Son book is pretty darn good.
You must get some Gochugaru (KochuKaru) -dried & coarse ground Korean chiles.
Assuming you raised a decent burr with 500 and 1000, you may be doing more harm than good going to the 5 k stone. I finish Henkels at 1 to 2 k.
See Sachem's post @ nr 5
I understand you really well, man!
I know that feeling, believe me 😜😜😜
The most important thing is you enjoy it-
