View Full Version : Keith Orr from Portland OR

I'm new to the group as of last night, and yes I have used caul fat when making pate'

It's neutral flavored and sort of dissolves away as you cook. I suppose it would be like putting on something that will self baste with fat. I get it from a chef friend on those rare occassions that I use it. On a pate it keeps the forcemeat from drying out. Lest I be accused of putting on airs with my first post - anybody that has ever made a meatloaf has made a basic rustic pate'

I'm from Portland OR, but escape to some acreage south of Portland most weekends - Barbecue whenever I get the chance, on whatever appliance is at hand. Mostly spareribs or butts with the occassional brisket or turkey. I also conspire with a friend to make sausages as often as possible.

Merry Christmas

I split your thread over to Cattle Call, where we do personal introductions. I meant to leave a shadow thread for the on topic part of the discussion, but forgot. For this I appologize.

But, I'm so happy to have a new brother in smoke! Glad you found us, and you'll get a great welcoming here on the site! No question ever goes unanswered here.

Welcome My New Brother!

Hey Keith! I'm originally from PDX, too, but I only go back to visit the family about twice a year now. How's the Rose City these days? Or should I say, "The City that Works"? LMAO

Anyway-welcome aboard!!

Arlin and All,

Thanks for the warm welcome.

Life in Portland is cold and surprisingly dry, though not for long.

The City That Works! How did you know I was a City Employee? Now that Vera the mayor is out, perhaps we can go back to the City of Roses.

Bone in Turkey Breasts in the brine to cook up for the Christmas Family Disfunction.

HEHE Good thing I didn't mumble something about all city workers sleeping in their trucks, huh? ;)

My family is more than excited about that bi...woman getting voted out! Man, the stories about her....
