  • Cooking Times for Turkey

    Cooking times for turkey aren’t set in stone. That’s because all ovens are not the same. If an oven temperature monitor went from house to house measuring and recording how long it takes an oven to reach 350 degrees and test how accurate the ovens were, he’d report chaos. All ovens say 350 degrees but they aren’t that hot. Some are hotter. This becomes one of the big differences in cooking times for turkey.

    • Does Barbecuing Food Really Cause Cancer

      Ignoring the obvious fact that if this were really true, then 95% of the worlds population would be dead by now, we can examine this objectively. Even a cursory examination of the actual evidence should answer the question: Does Barbecuing Food really Cause Cancer?

    • How To Make A Homemade Steak Rub

      The first thing to keep in mind is that Steak Rubs are an accessory, not a way to cover up mistakes. Many is the time I have gotten a steak in a so-called “Steakhouse” and was served a lessor cut of meat encrusted in spices in order to hide it's pedigree.

    • Cooking a Prime Rib Roast

      There are two primary methods to use when cooking a prime rib roast: medium heat and searing. Both use an oven temperature of 325 degrees F. The only difference between them is that with the searing method, you’ll first “sear” the meat in an oven at 450 degrees F for about 20 minutes before turning the oven down to 325 degrees F for the rest of the cooking time.

    • Catching Your Dinner

      After all is said and done, maybe it is not so much that fresh-caught fish is really better-tasting, as much as the idea that you just fed yourself, with your own two hands and brain, just like your cave-dwelling and savannah-dwelling ancestors have done since the dawn of time.

    • Is Medium Rare Steak Bad For You

      Nowadays, it seems we can't do anything right, or safe. “Don't eat this, don't eat that, don't drink this, don't breathe......” If all of the cautions are true, it makes you wonder how the heck the human race manages to survive from year-to-year.

    • Is That Leftover Hamburger Safe To Eat

      Hamburger can be kept at 40°F or less for up to 2 days, and still be safe to eat. Frozen hamburger meat will keep indefinitely, but there will be a little loss of quality after about 4 months or so.

    • Why Does Eating Turkey Make Me Sleepy

      In years past, when people would choose to snooze after a Christmas or Thanksgiving, it was blamed on the turkey. And, at the time, it was a logical conclusion. It has to do with why a turkey has white meat, and dark meat.

    • Grilling Beef Tenderloin

      Whenever grilling beef tenderloin, always follow the traditional rule that is used for grilling all meats: Don’t place the meat on a cold or warm grill; have the heat source hot enough to sear the meat quickly which will seal in the juices.
