You won't regret this! I'm expecting lots of pictures

This weekend will be pork confit. Next weekend, thinking of doing baloney or Ruhlman's hotdog recipe. Probably the hotdog.

I only have one whole lobe right now and don't want to run the risk. Also, that's a lot of foie to have to eat quickly.

I know you have chef friends who would be more than happy to eat some foie.

I can't wait. I have a feeling I will be putting it to good use all the time. Pork confit sounds interesting. Once I get the basics down I want to expand. Considering one of my favorite things to do is try new and interesting foods (for a Southern California white boy at least that watches Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern and wants to eat practically everything on that show), I'm sure I will have no problem smoking just about anything I can get my hands on that makes sense to smoke.

Damn double post. Anyways...I won't be smoking any foie gras. C'mon dawg, I don't have that bankroll. But I am bound and determined to convince a friend to make the trek with me up to LA asap to go to Church & State and Foie Gras will be ordered.

You live in LA goddamnit. Find somewhere that sells it by the slice and just buy one portion.

I have to do everything myself.

I live in Orange County, not LA. I've gone on this pursuit before and only found one local place that sells it in tins. Already pissed myself off today as I went to a local German deli for lunch to get a liverwurst sandwich and perhaps some different sausages/salamis and it was closed. Will be there tomorrow.

Um ok. Don't exactly know much about this but I assume either the awesome German or Italian deli near my house will guide me in the right direction. So I guess i need a vacuum sealer too.

Having to go to a specialty deli for fatback. How quaint.

Sorry, never cooked with fatback before. The thing with these delis is that I absolutely love them and their meats are so much better than anything found at the local supermarkets. If that's not reason enough to make the trip, their prices on the items I can find at the supermarkets is actually cheaper than the supermarket prices and much higher quality. Plus I'm going to one of those delis tomorrow anyways so might as well take a gander.
