They're like long vienna sausage. OK as a snack but not much as a meal.

Excellent meal IMO. If you load the dog up with enough condiments, you may not even need the beans and salad

Everytime I have a dog is when I realize I don't really care for them, but I can't help myself at Costco when I can get one with a gallon of pop for a buck fifty.

My girlfriends dad got me a sous vide machine for Christmas. Haven't had the chance to use it yet, but I'm sure there will be some exciting things coming out of my kitchen soon. Especially since I finally installed my real kitchen last week.(mostly)

My grandfather had one he piked from the lab he worked in. Pretty neat being able to cook something to perfect temperature and maintain that temp indefinitely.

I've played around with that a bit, with a DIY setup--controller on a crockpot. It's awesome.

However, the other half just can't deal with the difference from conventionally cooked stuff, so I don't get to do much of it.

Try soft/hard boiled eggs. There's a whole range of discovery there.

A quick pan sear before serving and you have fool proof anything.

I think we're gonna do some eggs Benedict with it this weekend. Cooking eggs with it seems really cool. I'm hoping to find some time Saturday to go pheasant hunting. I really want to do a confit with it.

I've pretty much perfected venison steak on the genesis, but I'm looking forward to trying it in the sous vide too.

Pretty much. Used to hate it when I was a kid. Or maybe just the smell, I don't think I ever actually touched it. Love it now, as well as its spicy cousin kimchi

I made some a few years ago from cabbage I grew. Easy to do and was so much better than the stuff you buy.

I dated a girl who's dad was a straight up immigrant from Korea. His second wife was the same, couldn't even speak English but she understood, "**** me that is some good food!" she would go out and bury in the back and the whole nine yards, it was freaking amazing.

Edit:. She buried the kimchi, not other stuff. The other food was good too, one time we ate fish eye soup (there were no actual eyes) but it was awesome too.

Sauerkraut/butter, potatoes, onions & either Bratwurst, Kielbasa or dogs with seasoning... can't go wrong...
