Alex your jaffle pics is that on the island? If so are you allowed to have a fire on the beach?

I don't think you are technically allowed to have fires on the beach, but if you go to the really remote parts of the island, nobody will bother you. Also there are awesome bonfire pits all around the island provided by Toronto Parks. There is one particular pit by Gibraltar point that is excellent, and another on the corner of Olympic Island that is also really nice.

Went to Marky & Sparky's last night and it was excellent. My friend Vera and I ordered a few different things (ribs, chicken, brisket sandwich, coleslaw, baked beans, chilli) and they were all tasty and terrific. The ribs were my favorite though: some of the best ribs I have ever eaten!

The ribs should be my best meat I cook as it was the first cut I started to smoke with... I have it down to a science.

In the media my brisket gets the most attention as the brisket is an easy meat to make for a quick meal, which fits our environment.

Rib sell more on Friday and Saturdays.

I am bringing my South African jaffle maker to the TBQ. Jaffle makers are sort of like round panini presses you can use in a BBQ or fire.

What you do is get 2 slices of high quality bread (I use the cranberry walnut loaf from market bakery), butter the outside of the slices, put whatever filling you want inside the sandwich (I like bacon, cheese, carmelized onions, sauteed zuccini), lock it in the jaffle maker, and stick it in the fire. Scrum delish!

I want to try the jaffle at the TBQ. MMMMMM, looks like a good sandwich maker!

Kind of figured that... Walked down Hanlans toward the airport and figure that may be a good area to have a fire as it is low traffic...

Did a pretty good brisket last weekend. As I had suspected the fat cap was the issue with my previous attempts that didn't work out. I smoked it for about 6 hours and then wrapped in foil and put it in the oven for about 7 more. Took it off at 190.

I have been using less lump charcoal and more wood (oak) which I think helps get a better result.

This is about 4 hours in or so.

Had some left overs from the other night so we took the smoked brisket and pulled pork left over and made some chili... people loved it!!!

Also made deep fried Mac & Cheese balls, which sounds gross but they are very tasty. Top that with pulled pork, chipotle sauce and mild sauce is awesome!!!

Here is the Mac & Cheese ball. The ball is put into a egg wash then breaded, and fried.

It's reminds me a play off the fried ice cream concept. With a crust that protects the inside layer.

Who would ever think that "fried mac and cheese" sounds gross? It sounds awesome to me! Do you just make up a batch of mac n cheese and then form it into balls when it's cold? Is there a trick to keeping them together in the fryer or do they hold up pretty well?

You have to prep the mac and cheese a day ahead of time and leave it in the fridge. The next day the cheese is in a format that makes it really easy to form into the balls.

From there it's just egg wash and bread crumbs

Most people love the idea and taste. Others think it sounds really weird lol.

However we make these every Thursday and some people come to the smokehouse just for these, and there favorite meats of course.

I've seen those a few times, it's kind of like the mars bar concept - everything just gets better with deep frying. Steve tried the ones at St. Louis and they were pretty good.

You should do hush puppies. I fell in love with them at the BBQ place in North Carolina that we went to. So good.

I have done hush puppies and they are yummy. And it's fun to say dinner comes with "hush puppies and slaw" with a southern drawl.

The fried mac and cheese was delicious! As were the pulled pork and brisket sandwiches as per usual.
