    Had a few boys over last night.
    My good friend has been a private chef for some of the wealthiest families around.
    He pulled in some favors and we had 60 day dry aged ribeyes, Kobe skirt steak and home made spicy sausage.
    Grilled veggies, stuffed baked potatoes, sautéed jalapenos, garlic bread with melted mozzarella.
    He knows how to cook to say the least.

    But I know how to have a fire!

    Used gas grill for the veggies. I used store bought lump charcoal and hickory wood chips to smoke with.

    I don't have any good cooking woods. All I have is oak but I haven't tried it because I heard it leaves a bitter flavor.

    Next time I'll give you guys advance notice so you can come over!

    Oak will work just fine for grilling, ya just gotta let it get to the coaling stage. All the nasties are gone by then. Smoking with oak is a little different story, hickory and mesquit too. Over smoke and you will get bitter.

    That is some FINE looking chow. Now - are you sure that was kobe and not wagu? Kobe is darned difficult to get in the states. Wagu is the same breed as Kobe, but Kobe MUST be raised in Japan to be "real kobe".

    What can I say - I am a food whore.

    Knowing my friend and the family he cooks for it was most definitely real Kobe. This guy works for a multi billionaire. He might even have some Japanese guys here on his estate raising the cow from birth and then slaughtering it:eek:

    There was so much left over that, I'm eating the last piece of steak today for lunch.
    I pretty much ate steak for lunch for the last week and it still taste good and am not sick of it.

    Wait till march when we do our 3rd annual Chili cook off. I eat chili for a week also. Which if i can boast, I took 1st and 3rd.
    That's right, I beat the super high end chef that cooked all those steaks. But he took first in a landslide last year. I guess revenge was a motivator!

    Just eat your p and j sandwich while looking at the pics and maybe it will taste like a juicy, tender, smokey ribeye.
