By the way, the last three months or so, I’m going with the Kroger butcher over Ninos. Fruit and produce has taken a step back though

No lamb. I haven't taken delivery of the ceramic yet. I need to get that set up.

So, my best story of Lamb is my buddy, who is 100% greek.  His family has owned the Clawson steak house forever.   They'd always roast a whole lamb in April.  Anyway, they'd always do it at his house which is right next to the clawson steak house, then take it to the steak house and cut it up for the family party.  Well, one time their cousins in Columbus wanted the party.  Only fair.  Part of the family thing is gathering around the lamb while it's roasting and rotating and having a good time.  My friends would always have the whole lamb delivered to the Clawson steak house.  Not down there, they found in Columbus you could order a whole lamb to Kroger.   You just had to tell them when you wanted it and go get it.  They did.   He said the butcher shop was in the back of the store, and him and his cousin go in, grab the thing which is wrapped in a clear big bag and they're walking through the store with it to the check out counter.  One kid started crying and a lady screamed.  Not too funny, but if I had half a buzz on it would be pretty funny hauling one of those through a store going to the check out counter with it.

Hell they have them hanging in the refrigerated cooler aisles in Costco. That is pretty funny, though.

Pantry, you should check this place out. I don't know if they have lamb kabobs but if anywhere does they might. This place is hilarious. I told my Dad, I've never been to the old country but when I stepped into this place I felt like I was in the old country. They definitely had whole lambs hanging in the back by the butcher.

Today's kabob lunch in the first 2 pics. A prime strip steak I made for lunch the other day in the other one. That was tasty.

Pantry, try Saad down in Eastern Market.   You can pre order.   Halal meats.  They have Lamb. Their menu doesn't say lamb kabobs, only beef, but you can call and pre-order.  It's a pretty good deal.

Saad meats Halal

get some lamb brain

Disclaimer, I've only walked past it a while back.  But I recall some stories from my wife's friends that say it's  a good market/was a good market.   So, you're taking your own flyer here.

Did they own it when that chick that worked there flew her Yugo off the Mackinac Bridge?

Friend lived in Rochester Hills and had a pig roast every summer. He got tied up at work the one Friday and asked me to pick up the pig that afternoon. There use to be a slaughter house in Utica. Real shit hole that stunk like hell. Paid and pulled my car around to a side door. Hundreds of slaughtered pigs inside. Flies. Just fucking nasty. They wheelbarrowed out a pig wrapped in plastic and hoisted it in the hatch of my brand new Z-28. Was a nice day so I'd pulled off the T-tops and left them at my apartment. Got on M-59 and hit the gas. The plastic whipping in the wind was making so much noise couldn't hear the radio so I slowed down. Other vehicles started passing me. Some honked and were pointing and laughing. Others honked and gave me a thumbs up. Looked in the rearview mirror and saw four pig legs pointing straight up, no longer in the plastic wrap.

Plenty of Halal meat shops around here. None of them you can walk into and get kabobs...lamb or otherwise.

Rice almond salad with chicken from Al Kabob (formerly Beirut Palace)...$8.  Delicious. Could only eat maybe a third at lunch...the rest is lunch tomorrow.

Got the primo today from my boy zippy. Had to give it a run for dinner. I bought a little strip steak since I'm on a calorie count. It slammed and went hard.

Very, very nice.

Any particular reason you went with Primo instead of BGE?

I've heard very, very good things about the primo over the years. I have no idea what a BGE costs but I know the Primo that I got costs anywhere from $850-$950 new and I chose it over the BGE because I got it brand new for $500.

Are you guys using the right flour? High quality stuff? (King Arthur)

I've been experimenting with some of my pizza crusts and I get a much better result for Detroit style with a bread flour or a self rising KA flour than I do with All purpose, for example.

This was just all purpose but flour would be the first thing I would change as I know they have bread flour out there

Why is it so good? Meat looks incredible, but why can’t I replicate that on my charbroil gas grill? Keeps the heat perfectly. So sell me one. I’m actually thinking of smoking a brisket on my gas grill for 20 hours. I think I can do it.

My mom made bread. Was excellent warm out of the oven with a light smear of butter. Wish I had her recipe.

Never made bread. Nothing better than a powerful sourdough.

I don't know Wags, I don't think these are great things yet or anything I couldn't really replicate on my WSMs or gas grill but the opportunity presented itself and it was a good price so I pounced. 

The selling point is that the ceramic allows you to cook very, very hot (got it up over 700 degrees within 20 minutes of lighting the lump) so it's great for searing steaks or cooking pizza for example. Additionally the ceramic holds heat really well so apparently if you want to smoke on it you can hold temps in the ~ 250 range for like 24 hours. I doubt I will use it for smoking much, I am used to my WSMs and my trailer and don't think I will want to dirty thins thing up. I think mostly steaks and pizzas. It's supposed to be able to get up north of 1000 degrees.

I like medium rare, more toward medium. I never get over medium. We agree there. My issue with very rare meat is more texture related than taste.

Also fwiw the longer the inside of the steak is exposed to air the more pink/red it becomes. When I pulled that one it was 125+ in the thick part and 145+ in the thin part. I rotated it to get the thin end out of the fire as much as possible but that grill is so hot I don't think it mattered much.

Anyone thinking of trying a pie or cobbler Meijer is going to have locally grown Blueberries 4 pints for $5 starting tomorrow - that's as fine a price as you'll get all summer.

I changed my store to Van Dyke and 15 mile and it still showed that price so I think so.

Just in case anyone heads to that Meijer it is actually at 16 & VD. Also, construction on Mound Rd has started so you might want to avoid it.
