I’m sure everyone has that dish that brings them back home. Mine is my mom’s scratch made lasagna. She doesn’t have a lick of Italian blood in her, but that doesn’t stop her from rolling out her own noodles and making her own gravy. This is the dish she makes when she wants us to stay with them an extra night. “You can’t leave, I made a pan of lasagna for a small meal before you hit the road tomorrow.” Works every time. I’m sure there are technically better lasagnas out there, but this one is mine.

She’ll occasionally bring us frozen pans (loaf pans many years older than me) with hand written instructions: Bake 1 hour @ 350F. I don’t think me nor any of my siblings have ever told her that her time and temp are all wrong. It’s still lukewarm warm after and hour. It’s more of an “it’s ready when it’s ready dish”.

I told my wife before our wedding that she should never attempt to make this for me as it will never compare. What does everyone else have special in their memory bank?

Anyone have an outdoor flat top?

Thinking about kopping this on sale:


I feel like it will get more use than a traditional propane grill. Searing steaks, making smash burgers, etc. Hard to beat the price.
Kopping is just docking with an inanimate object, so no you shouldn't kopp a hot griddle.

In all seriousness, I don't have an outdoor griddle but my FIL does. It's fantastic for fajitas and burgers, so yes.

I think it will be a good start to your cadre of outdoor cooking appliances every man needs.

For my KJ I've two of these reversible griddles and also a half moon cast iron grill. It's great using the grill and griddle insert together on the KJ and the griddle also works perfectly on the Lynx. It was the KJ griddle on the Lynx for those ground brisket burgers that were so damn good.

If you don't mind futzing with charcoal, and can afford the initial investment, a KJ with the toys is a super versatile piece. Smoke, low and slow, high temp grill, griddle, and everything in between.

I have a swappable flat top for my gas grill. The stand alone flat top is a nice to have item for me.

No smoked meats for Fathers day this year as the weather looks suspect. No pics yet but slow cooking birria and going to make quesobirra tacos and gringo tacos for the kids.

Along the Mexi line...I thought to myself, "Self, you hate cleaning beef cheeks but you love barbacoa. What can you use in substitution?" Then it hit me...brisket barbacoa. When I was shopping yesterday I did not like the looks of any of the briskets but I plan to try doing barbacoa with chunks of brisket and seeing how that works.
