I finished my main cook, and still had a good load of hot coals, so why not toss some hot dogs on the grill to put away for lunches this week.

On they go. Inside I go. I get busy putting together my meal.

Late last night, I'm lying in bed, and it hits me -- FARK, the hot dogs. :doh:

Mmmmm, toasty.

No, the ugh who rents a room from me does thus too. He crock potted two racks of ribs into something that looked like the scene from some grisly horror flick.

Usually, I just ruin stuff while trying to cook it properly...never forgot about it. :oops: Most revenly it was some fresh Elgin sausage. Inside was dry and grainy, outside was tough.

In this pic I took them off the smoker and put them on the grill to toast up the buns a bit

11-04-2013, 01:43 PM
Can't say I've done that with meat, but I am famous for forgetting the buns are out there toasting till it's way too late...:tsk:

On the other hand, I can't tell you how many times back in the day I emptied the tank on the gasser after forgetting to shut it down. :doh:

Yip, done that.
Usually it's because I'm making tomorrows lunch for myself to take to work, and by the time we eat and clean the kitchen I remember that I'm still cooking. I've also ruptured a few beers in the freezer in an attempt to cool them quicker.

You're living my life, Al. A couple of burgers get real expensive when I realize I've used a fresh tank of gas to cook them. :shocked:

Only time I forgot the meat was several years ago visiting my sister in Seattle. Decided to cook up some home made salmon burgers as an appetizer on her SJ while doing a prime rib on the OTG. Prime rib was excellent and so were the martinis. We discovered the hockey pucks on the SJ the next morning... I'm sure they would have been delicious if only we had remembered they were cooking while we were solving the problems of the world over our martinis. :doh:

I can't remember when, but, I posted a completely farked cook here a while back. It happens, I did take photos.

On a different note, I recently cooked for some friends and made a quick pickled cucumber, like I have made thousands of times before, except, I used a vinegar from my friends supply, and it turned out to be so phenolic it was inedible. I had not tasted it, assuming that cider vinegar is cider vinegar, and this stuff was horrid. Rookie mistake.

Not only have I done it....it was also with hotdogs! Had some nathan's angus dogs I was wanting to put on my grill so I didn't waste my coals I had going for the steaks that just came off. Sooo I placed them on the "cool" part of the grill so they could come up to temp super slow while I enjoyed my steak dinner.


Well.... just as you, a couple hours later I'm watching tv dealing with my delicious steak dinner food baby when it hit me that I had left my not so cheap dawgs on the grill. And they sure did look a lot like your pic!!:doh::doh:

I have been "surprised" a few times when I get ready to fire up the Stumps for the next cook....

Beer is always involved....

Just like the night I feel asleep with the lawn sprinkler running, from around 7:00PM until I woke up at 4:00AM, realizing I left it on....

The sight of a 59 year old, chunky fitter, naked, running through the yard isn't pretty, Thank God it was dark. :shocked:

I've done that a couple/few times, notably once indoors when I came home all trashed and wanting to eat. I woke up at whatthefark o'clock on the couch in a house full - and I mean full - of smoke and a pot burning up on the stove. :shocked: That was certainly not the type of pot smoking I was hoping for that evening, but I am glad that I wasn't so far gone that I couldn't still wake up. The hot dogs did not look delicious, so I didn't eat them. There have been a couple mornings after parties where I'll find the last run of chicken or some such thing in the smoker. :tsk:

UP O!!1 This thread just reminded me yesterday before going to the refinery to work I took out some summer sausage and put in my hot water heater closet. I thaw stuff out in there all the time. Well at least I just remembered when I get off at 5:00am hope I remember to get that stuff out of the closet

My brother and I did that once when we were kids and the story still comes up every time the family gets together. I blame my parents for leaving two pre teen boys in charge of the grill. By the time we remembered they were ashes. We tapped one on the grill and it shattered. I've had a few fails since then, but nothing compared to that.

Kinda related, sort of, kinda, maybe.... but here's what it looks like when your burners are rusted out. I guess it's related to the whole "cooking disaster, not paying attention thing".
(this was a couple years ago. Since I found this forum, I don't cook with gas anymore). haha

Charcoal is cheaper than meat, so usually I pull everything off and let the coals die. But I have turned some meat into jerky because I put the meat on the edge of the direct and indirect section of the grill. Luckily it was a small piece that me and my friend said "uhh we'll just ignore that piece" lol
