Welcome back it's the third course of the food show on the big 870 WW LWWO. 105 point three FM. -- -- it more as a yet passing as a -- person. We -- here at the boomers and beyond expo. Which is a big thing where you can. Learn a lot and a marvel a lot and they'll -- -- and it's hard to explain exactly but the if you come here I think you'll probably hang around here for at least an hour. The there's a big band that's playing in the auditorium immediately adjacent. And they sounded great that's one of the reasons cited were I was sitting right down as we started this hours I was listening to them that they were that good. -- 6063. Penalties 2601870. Is our number. And we have over here Dave Dave welcome to the food show. -- -- -- I'm doing fine. To question -- and -- and and -- -- Arlen. Fries and chicken. I'm -- -- means but. It is dry and yet you -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Frying chicken what's interesting about it is that. There are a lot of people who have come along with what they say is the best possible fried chicken recipes. And it turns out. That it isn't but only because they were so many really good ways of doing fried chicken that can't really say that one is better then that all the rest. Right let me ask is something. Home. How much she can you do we get ones. Down about fifteen. The opposite in the. Okay. I would deep fry it that. If you're doing that but that's the equivalent of a -- or chickens out or correct yeah. -- -- -- Know what what makes it doubly instead of cutting him audience if you're subject to two to three treatments two to three. I would deep fry it meaning. And have a but six inches of oil it. A lot of oil. By. White -- And then the heat that up to. 300. 75 degrees. -- And have a habit of that there vomit which has seen that but it's the same thing. You want the kind as the little that'll -- coming back up the ones -- -- class. Okay and and watch that in the meantime bring your ship hit a two room temperature. Ticket out of the refrigerator on an hour before you. Before you cook and -- happy that more time that. This will also help tremendously if you -- The starting the night before like eight hours. Put it in a mixture of one gallon of water. A half cup -- -- and a half a cup of sugar. She wrote yeah it's all of that completely. And then put the but the running into love food storage bags with the chicken as well you -- packet that obviously would one day. But squeezed you'll need a lot of these could squeeze out year. And and that way you don't have too much pride with the outlet that's it is that all we're doing and then -- Wednesday. Put it to -- You know the ride you rinse off really really well with cold running water. You shake off the access that you let it come out what to room temperature at that -- to do that in the refrigerator the brining the one refrigerator. And then. The best coding I'd -- run. With cracker. That's the one that's worked that's. Cracker Barrel is just you you if you can buy it in -- box or not but you can make it up by month's all the crackers. Put -- in the food processors. Until until you have you know a -- Right and then. Coated with that. I don't. I wouldn't do the the thing we use what you put the egg wash and all that come back the second time I don't think it's necessary. This -- pretty easily cracker you will because it's a rise in the soaks up any oysters and applying it to the chicken. And then you go we need you cook it until it's golden brown you're looking for a temperature inside. Of the rest to be about a 170 degrees. And -- and that's at the -- to take longer. -- -- And things like that to find out -- that like fifteen minutes so. It is it varies so much I hate to even be on time on it but fifteen minutes would be about right. That that would be kind of like right down the middle it might take as long -- twenty minutes. Okay you know and that recipe on the bottom of the hour the water. Half a gallon of water with with the a couple of half a cup of salt and a half a cup of sugar. OPEC will dissolve to 100% so you've seen nothing there at all. A -- you put the chicken -- you know into food storage bag you put into what. Put into it but it would trade Europe pole or something just in case it -- new -- yeah I ever had it happen but it you know you -- Don't know bright and about that -- to crack -- -- An ethnic black and you don't have to battery quickly I got to the.

Basically the fish in the hand with with melted butter.

Yeah comes out right and you even broil it royals real nice to. -- hurt but certain you know it just a little butter in a little you know the seasoning and a creole seasoning horse just salt pepper for goodness sake. On. The mark. It depends at how thick it is but is a fool proof way of knowing when fish is done especially it's on the broiler but this is true of the grill too. You just. Stick the fork into the middle of the fish and let it sit there for a but four seconds or so and then pull it out in the touched the pork. To your lips. If you won't be so hot that they'll burn you but if it feels warm at all it's done. And that's regular breath yet it's a great fish I think it's the most under -- fish we had a love she.

Well that toughness is probably why we don't see it anymore but I don't put this out maybe somebody knows. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Our program today is sponsored by a rents or bullies. Among the many things you can get veterans is one that I think it's just real. Brilliant pork boy. It is not something that they invented I there's a place that I know I was doing it before they were even in business but. This is the place where I would go to get this now. It's an Italian port it consists of getting your French bread and then you put some tomato sauce on. And then some sliced meat balls or sliced Italian sausage or slice honey deal. Or honey -- for that matter its mass import them through it. And they put some mozzarella cheese on top and then a little more red sauce and then put the French bread on top of that and stick it in the oven until the she's melts completely in the sauce it's nice and hot and that is great great great scene which it always has. You can get at it rains or boys along with just about any other kind of -- where you can imagine. But they also have all the world's plate -- the -- the pasta dishes that seafood platters the whole thing. It's on veterans highway 2920303939. Veterans just -- clear.

Paddy is at the top of the pile right now -- welcome to the future. Right time. About the I'm -- from Mississippi. You and love night there and it's not -- hope that it poem wonderful question right. Can count on need to give me a recipe. That up a bunch of fresh tonight. On how many is a bunch. Well more in line. I'll -- that one part of you at three got into the night. -- that's a lot of debate yeah this is a problem with tomatoes that you have none at all we have way too many. Well you know there's a whole lot of things you can do -- my favorite the issue of all time involving tomatoes I mean really is. You get some Jumbo lump -- it doesn't have to be jumbled it could be it could be special white if you want. I'm at bat well okay you got it. And then you make. -- got songs which is basically just a mayonnaise that's been him down a little bit by adding a little bit weaker. What I actually do is. With capers in it and take some of the -- -- -- the -- to orbit you don't need much we're talking but a peoples' limit -- Angus loosens up the -- so. It kind of disappears when you toss it with the crap. And then you put that on top of the slice ripe tomato. And that is just that at ten out of ten good flavor it's just wonderful. And people will eat. Seven. -- that we elect getting want to separate people from being on the -- thing about what. All wallet that you would then you have even more control over it in the way I start you could just make it a little lighter that's all. You can't do it in the like the other not acceptable date on -- -- there was -- popped up. Night you know getting greener and blah blah blah. Is. Actual product issue. Recommend. Question -- -- short one that comes to mind is that he sliced tomatoes very keenly. And you put it on -- Not -- crawled into its laws but are just going to pizza. That comes out it's matter of fact that's the original pizza the pizza marker -- with the -- and the tomato slices. And then a little -- easily over the top. I needed to and you can. You can even do that it with other things besides the -- you could almost make the little can't rule out the news. But the fish that used to be is an -- still there at the this date night in lake view where they make a little casserole. That's nothing but the kind of cheese with little of the pizza with all the -- in or -- and everything else and that's it but if you would have. You know. And I can apply. Or Italy that's good. Go right to life and I thing you know perfect cap or -- on -- -- I. Greener and cheap you're quite right on top -- -- and Ike. -- I. Know mom -- all right well I looked him up. Get out. You know one thing -- -- you know you're right in season though at least you'll have to fight the season's. -- -- -- -- -- I do I that's absolutely true and what these nasal actually do it if -- what we have hotel all right thank you. I appreciate your being there and we will come back with more in a moment but first please hello there it's the food show on. The big 870 WW -- WW 105 point three FM. This is Tom that's more history to be here what you're talking about food. Cheney is calling is over here on the green phone I think Ellis. That's right. Jay welcome. -- wanted to -- it it's yup pretty warm but other than yes. Yeah I'm on the -- -- -- back to your question. They want you were going to be one Arctic. Sixty pounds. On Islam. What you know. Or anything like. What were wondering -- in late fees in this. Sure yeah it would work well because we will try once we couldn't get rid of -- season at all. You couldn't get the ribs to be season. Not really not just -- in the. And it was you know wondering if we -- dangerous for -- -- and and and computers to march. I'll I'll tell you what that would be the safer way to go. Because I have on more occasions that I like to remember. Pins in places where with guys who really knew what they were Dolan or at least I thought they -- wonderful was at the Kansas City American royal which is one of the biggest barbecue movements in the country. But what they had these -- that they had roasted. So low for a long time which is what I think you're after. And on who out of three of them went sour is that what they would actually the bacteria have run away with it stinks to high heaven and was terrible and the only thing you do was the world the way. If you split it. You will not have that problem because he will be able to penetrate into everything you lonely you'll get a view that it get a better outcome. If that's what I would do and then it that it would also help the seasoning issue to. Now OK he's been in wise what's -- like. It is about driver the question that I injected also. Not I'm not I'm not a fan of rejecting. I never was to me it puts a lot of seizing in this spot in nominal but there I I just -- it. Really coach Phillip and -- that these things with dry -- I'm a big believer drive. Outside outside everywhere. Okay and bomb has hit lasting words it was one reported out of them away. Com. This is the -- microwave for those who might not know Kate should microwave it's it's kind of up medal. Box that you put fuel both in and on at least that's I've seen him built several different ways but that's the most common. Correct and there's one there's one is mainly on. And then would do would be calm comes smoking material inside. You you and so and you know -- the hot it was just found. It wasn't terrible problem a lot when we have come here. But we should get it totally fallen apart correct. Yeah but I'm looking for. Our rights it should be tendered gender -- low long cook. What Tom thank you very well thank you good luck when it comes out of Q how are you have a wonderful fourth of July weekend. And pictures there. Thank you -- It's the -- Julia cajun microwave unique.

With the exception of most of the user that you have one -- but as garlic and -- it's actually pretty good but that most of over regular users but the entrees appetizers. All involve a lot of orally. The great thing but garlic is it not only does it taste wonderful and enhance the other flavors but. It is one of the few things that is delicious. That you're doctor has not condemned. -- or has ever told you to use. Less -- because garlic seems to be just nothing but good for so go for.
