Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


Cajun-style Andouille

pork, breakfast, cajun

2 tablespoon minced garlic
2 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
2 teaspoon cayenne
3 tablespoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground mace
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
2 tablespoon sugar
5 lb pork butt, fat and lean
1 separated, cut into 2 inch
1 cubes
1/2 cup cold water
1 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 medium or wide hog casings

Mix the garlic, salt, spices, and thyme with the sugar in a small bowl. Separate the meat and fat into 2 bowls, and rub each thoroughly with the spice mixture. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Grind the fat in a meat grinder fitted with a 1/4-inch plate. Grind the lean meat using a 3/8-inch plate. Mix the meat and fat together in a large bowl, stir the liquid smoke into the cold water and add to the meat. Knead until the water is absorbed and the spices well blended. Stuff the mixture into the hog casings. Dry for 2 hours uncovered in the refrigerator. Hot-smoke in a covered barbeque or smoker at about 250 degrees for 2 1/2 to 3 hours. Don't let them shrivel. Use immediately or freeze. Makes about 5 pounds. Adapted from "Hot Links and Country Flavors" by Bruce Aidells and Denis Kelly.
