    New Forum - The Cook Shack!

    Howdy folks. Seems like we've got a bunch of woodworkers around here that do more than just work wood.

    Some of them are pretty darn good cooks and well, just naturally want to share.

    So we've setup a new forum called 'The Cook Shack'. Feel free to drop in and share your latest creation, or ask questions from some of our resident chefs and pitmasters!

    You do know the best way to cook bacon is on a sheet pan in the oven right?
    Advantages:
    1. you can cook (a LOT) more at once
    2. cooks more evenly, doesn't curl
    3. frees up the stove top for important things.. like making gravy

    I like to do mine on the gas grill outside. I use the lowest heat setting, and turn it often. No muss, no fuss, and no cleanup. I started cooking bacon outdoors because my wife would complain for the rest of the day about the cooked bacon odor in the house. (And yet she loves to eat bacon...go figure. ) It does require a grill with good, even heat. My Weber in LA works great...my $80 cheapie in ABQ...not so much.

    Interesting, I'd expect grease flair up issues with that.. The low cleanup part I do like. When its warm enough here the grill is definitely my favorite place to cook. Everything from corn to bread to steaks gets cooked on it.

    I think a lot of it has to do with the brand of grill and how well it's designed. The Weber keeps flare-ups to a minimum. Running on low heat also helps.

    OK, just to make sure I got the rules right. Are we allowed to post recipes that don't require a grill or smoker
