Love Indian food.

I know some folks that bring back spices from India and they are much more potent than the ones here.

I have a few versions I rotate through depending on how lazy I'm feeling. A good vindaloo is very labor intensive. I'll dig through my recipe books later tomorrow and post them. Probably easier for me to just scan them and post the images. I'm too busy watching the Braves, drinking some Cab and playing Diablo3 at the moment though :-D

My favorite BBQ has to be spare ribs because I eat them with my family as we share racks of ribs. Non-BBQ has to be steamed blue crabs because I eat them with my family because we all sit around the picnic table as we eat them. Funny how who I eat with makes the food my favorite. But, that's the way it is.

Non-BBQ - Lobster

Do you have a good purveyor for lobster in KC?

Here in California a lot of guys prefer the pacific lobster but I know better.

The Maine lobsters to me are far sweeter and more flavorful.

Of course most that cook the pacific put a ton of butter, garlic and chiles on them as they grill them to get flavor not a bad idea.

It's a shame that lobsters quality suffers in the summer when grilling season is in most of the country.

Of course we don't have that problem here. :heh:

Are you kidding? The great stuff is harder to find, and pricier, but it can be found. I can't be as selective as people better located, like folks in the northeast.

I was originally going to say either tenderloin or seafood, but I think if I pick one thing,lobster trumps all.

I do love lobster but for me crab is even sweeter especially the blue claws.

Alaskan king crabs and dungeness are very good too but not as sweet.

How do you cook your lobsters?

I like my lobsters on the grill or asian style.

I would agree that you can get some sweeter crab, especially here where hard shell is the best I can get. I've been called crazy, but I have a preference for lobster over crab. Although in past trips to northern Virginia, I may have succumbed to temporary insanity and claimed to love Maryland blue shell crab the best.

I cook lobster the way I cook my ribs!:laugh: Some clarified butter is all I need.

Since you wrote the brisket tutorial I was sure that you cooked your lobster like a brisket! :wink:

Well for BBQ, I have two answers depending on whether I am making it or if I get it from someone (too expensive in my neck of the woods) - my cook is pork ribs and my favorite to order is Texas brisket.

For non-BBQ, lobster. 'Nuff said.

Bah, you WestCoasters probably don't get to experience Florida stone crab claws. I've had tons of Maine lobster, dungeness crab, king crab claws, snow crab claws, blue crab, etc., but nothing beats stone crab with some Joe's Stone Crab sauce.
Funny how they harvest them too. When in season, they literally twist the claw off the crab and throw them back in the water, and they eventually grow back. Expensive as hell, but you just can't beat them. Just went out of season down here and the wifey is crying the blues. They taste like a hybrid of a scallop and a crab, they are just crazy good.

You are right they don't get Stone Crabs here on the West Coast.

But I am a native East Coaster! Grew up on LI which in my day was a wasteland of gourmet cuisine back in the 60s and 70s. There was no BBQ anywhere in the state of NY back then nor Mexican and no sushi at all.

Sadly I may have had stone crabs but don't remember doing so.

The least favorite part of a crab or lobster for me is the claw although I do love the elbow.

I will check and see if I can find some stone crabs out here and take out a second mortgage.

It definitely holds a similar cultural position being the signature noodle bowl of its nation. Compared to pho, it's heartier, more savory, less delicate. The noodles are thicker, the broth has a soy sauce base with star anise, the beef comes in tender chunks and usually is cut from the shank where there are runs of connective tissue that get jelly-like from braising. Try a google web or image search for "taiwan niu rou mian" to get a look at it.

I love pho and ramen. If you dig pho I also suggest another vietnamese dish called "bun bo hue." It's a spicy red, thick-noodled central vietnamese soup with pork hock and blood cubes.

Our definition of what "BBQ" is differs dramatically but to answer your question according to the Mercan definition, yes and no.
There ate plenty of cuts available but they need lots of meat map knowledge on order to get a butcher to do them.
We have major trouble getting meaty pork ribs and American brisket, but there is an Australian cut I think is better than US brisket so that is what I use instead.
Oh, and don't ask.
American butchery doesn't do this cut!:rolleyes:
