Show Notes:

Spicy Squirrel Soup disaster 

The goal is not to cut or burn yourself

don't be in a hurry

read the recipe completely before cooking

TBS vs tsp

baking requires exact science

smoked Cheeze Itz

over cooking using Sous Vide - too tender 

thoroughly cooking bear and wild pig

let your meat rest 

dry wild game - over cooking, improper cooking

brine, marinades, injections 

using coconut milk on a smoker 

use sharp knives - get a sharpener 

Allen Company replaceable blade knife 

slow is smooth, smooth is fast

oil is not hot enough for frying - super soggy when low, undercooked when too hot 

how to check the oil temp 

The holy trinity 

a bad pate

submerging in ice water vs. hanging in cold air 

don't sous vide with silver skin on 

HOT TIP: write on packaging - for grill, for sous vide, etc...
