Hi everyone,

I'm starting a new series on the site called The Grill Lab. I'll use my science and culinary background to delve into what's going on when you're barbecuing or grilling. I hope the posts will help you learn more about the benefits of brining; what aging really does to steak; the chemistry and physics behind the smoke ring, and more.

Are there any specific topics that you want to see? Stay tuned for my first post on brining!

She blinded me...with science!! :wink: :lol:

(That song's probably older than you are, Julia. :wink: )

I think salting would be a good topic. Salt after cooking, just before, or well in advance? And why? For whole pieces of meat I'm in the last category.

I have a few topic ideas (go figure...):

Sous vide cooking (especially DIY stuff)
Traditional searing vs. reverse searing
Maybe a bit on sausage making?
Maybe grill/smoker modifications would belong here?
New grill gadgets

Let me get some coffee into my system and I'll likely come up with more. :twisted:
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.

Maybe a brief manifesto on cold smoking would be interesting...
