    It has been a while since I updated this. The two olive wood handled knives above found a home in Wales with my wife's cousin. Gifts for hosting the family the summer before last. I have since added a few more. The three below are Christmas presents. The steak knife / parer is a gift to my...

    Tips for make-ahead smoked pulled pork

    I have been cooking pork butts and briskets on my Kamado for many years and regularly cook for a range of events. I always do a full load, which is 5x pork butts at 9-10lb each and 3x briskets at around 13-17lbs each. This quantity of meat can present some cooling and storage challenges. Pork...

    Starter Bourbons: Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare, Lexington, and Four Roses are a great place to start. I also really like Angel's Envy. Try them if you get the chance: Pappy Van Winkle(15 year is the best), George T. Stagg Rye: Bulleit is a good place to start. I also like High West's Double...

    Need a Single Malt Recommendation

    Word of caution, collecting and drinking fine whisk(e)y is never-ending journey in pursuit of the perfect dram. It starts with single malts, then a few small batch Bourbons and further to Ryes. The more you sample, the better developed your palette becomes, leading you to wider ranging styles...

    On the bench, or what I am up to

    Del, this is amazingly generous of you. Thanks for this. Sorry about the phone pic of the parer. Only half of the second knife is from Del, the other half is from Home Depot. A gyuto or line would be outstanding. -Doug

    Hello from Germany

    Welcome to the KKF. Many of us envy your living in the Bier und Wurst capital of the world(my own opinion). I used to live in Karlsruhe and have fond memories visiting Baden-Baden and Berchtesgaden. -Doug

    Weight loss support group?

    Stefan, You might want to look into TLS. I am not a shill, just a happy successful customer. I lost 39 pounds in 12 weeks this past Spring under the supervision/coaching of a PhD Chemist/Nutritionist and have kept it off since May. My wife lost 35 pounds. It is a low-glycemic plan with...

    Shipping or Traveling to UK (Wales) with Kitchen Knives

    My wife is traveling to Wales next week and I was hoping to send a knife with her as a gift for our host. Some quick searches indicated that bringing a knife even in checked baggage would not be advised. Looks like shipping is my fallback position. I suspect that someone here has some...

    sushi rice - 'lil help

    Never having cooked sushi rice, I am hesitant to chime in. However, the chemist in me begs the question: what is the altitude where you cook? Most of Colorado is over 5000 ft (where water boils at about 203F) and much of the state is significantly higher than that. It could be making a...

    Mostly Sharp and Pointy

    Thanks everyone. Butch makes an awesome blade. In a moment of weakness, Butch sold me his personal chopper in 3V. It is almost 0.250" at the spine, and after we spent a half hour chopping kindling for a fire, we used it to slice roast beef. It worked great. It can also cut a 2x4 in half in...
