    In 2014, one of my brothers accepted a job that carried a fairly substantial hiring bonus, because it would require moving his family to town of less than 200 people more than an hour and a half away from the nearest full-scale grocery store or hospital. One of the indulgences that his wife permitted him with this bonus was the purchase of a huge-ass restaurant quality meat smoker. Over the following year he lured the rest of the family on three occasions to his cabin in the buttcrack of the wilderness with promises of vast quantities of BBQ. And on all three occasions, one or more members of the family contracted food poisoning. Not necessarily from the meats... but yeah, definitely from the meats. The final time it happened to so many of us that we had to beg their next door neighbor for access to additional bathrooms.

    Six months ago, my brother asked if he could stash a bunch of his stuff in my storage unit, and I obliged. One of the items stored was his meat smoker, which as far as I can tell had been used maybe half a dozen times, including those eventful family parties.

    With my brother's permission and the help of two of my roommates, I have just set it up in our back yard, cleaned it out thoroughly, and completed a humongous delicious brisket. Results are still pending re: my bowels, but it certainly tasted more thoroughly cooked than previous examples. I think he just had a weak ass recipe that perhaps called for insufficient heat and/or time.

    I would have posted pictures, but it didn't occur to me to take any until we were down to empty dishes. Next time!

    Yea if you start too low and don't clear that 140f threshold within 4 hours you can end up with bad meat. It's so hard to mess up though.

    Not needing to transport meat in the back of a car for an hour and a half likely helps.

    They've got a little local convenience store/bait shop/barber shop/post office for essentials, but getting enough meat for a big extended family gathering definitely would have required a trip to the "big city" (that city being the gleaming metropolis of Vernal Utah, population approximately 9K).

    Curry generally freezes pretty well IME. I find it most comforting to know that I have 2 or 3 curries in the bank for those days when I want a treat and I don't want to have to work and/or wait for it.

    Speaking of curries, I feel like it's years and years since I made a beef curry. I hear good things about Rendang and I've never tried it.

    Speaking of curry, I made Chef John's curry tonight and it was quite good. Made a few alterations (asparagus instead of broccoli, chicken thighs instead of breasts), and decided the best part was that spiced coconut milk "broth" soaked into a large quantity of steamed jasmine rice.

    I think I'll put it on my rotation as a change-of-pace dish every once in a while. Could see it working quite well with just about any meat and any vegetable combo.

    So I've never had potato salad from a Korean restaurant before tonight, and the version from the restaurant in K-town that I ordered from contains both chopped up hot dog and raisins.

    Is that... common?

    Also my first genuine surprise hot dog.

    But the rest of the salad bar is cool?
    The entire Chicago Dog thing... I just don't get it, I guess.
    Give me a scoop of chili and some cheese on my dog, and I'm happy. But there's no reason to turn a hot dog into a salad.

    Onion, pepper, and pickle are all tasty things that I'm good with having on my hot dog, though I'd want the pickle diced up.

    And with the exception of the pickle, I put those things in my chili anyway.

    A Chicago hot dog has very specific things on it, and french fries aren't one of those things

    yellow mustard, chopped white onions, bright green sweet pickle relish, a dill pickle spear, tomato slices or wedges, pickled sport peppers and a dash of celery salt

    This seems to be widely agreed upon consensus

    That looks like hot dogs trying to look like a tiramisu.

    ...if "tiramisu" means "pick me up", what means "put me down" or "run away from me, screaming"?

    Much like we have more than just stuffed when it comes to pizza, we have more than one popular style of hot dog in Chicago. There are plenty of places in Chicago that wrap fries in the same paper as your hot dog, so you end up with a few fries on it if you want or can take them off if you don't. Scroll down just a little bit further in the wikipedia entry you copied that list from and look at "Depression Dogs" under variations :P

    Celery salt is used in 50% of the places I've ever had a dog from at most. Pretty sure it would actually be less than that. Plain relish is also frequently used in place of the neon green sweet pickle relish - both are common.

    That video is showing hot dogs from Superdawg, which is a goddamned Chicago institution. I met the original owners years ago, and they were wonderful people. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superdawg

    I freely admit as a patron of many a costco hotdog, I put ERRRYTHING on my dawgs, from relish, to the onion, to the ketchup and the mustard and it is messy and glorious and delicious.

    I thought about organizing a thing where young radicals put their wages on their name tags at the annual staff training day, and then remembered that we're a library system, and you can see exactly what everyone makes by looking at the publicly-available pay scale and multiplying it by x years of 3% annual raises.

    It balances out because if you get promoted, it wipes out all the raises from your previous position. At my first manager's post I had a couple of non-degreed librarians who were outearning me by a fairly embarrassing margin.

    The real royalty are the ones who have been around long enough that they're still on the pension plan. And still coming to work, for some reason.
