    Fixed some fencelines for an old farmer years ago. He was tight on cash so we worked for a half-side of beef. Split the side with my co-worker, farmer butchered it up for us. Best paid job I've ever done. Totally worth it.

    Alright, time to pick up the brush again. I had to take a break to deal with house improvements following my surgery recovery. Improvements are still happening; however, I am able to dedicate a few hours throughout the weeknights to some painting. I will be updating the list, in the first post, to reflect points updates for 9th edition. Time to get hobbying again!

    I don’t do whisky/bourbon (at least not since that one time), but love watching other people have smoked drinks, I don’t even really enjoyed smoke flavor but it’s so dang entertaining! So far in my Sous Vide adventures I have made a few cuts of beef and some chicken breast. I prefer the sous vide for tougher cuts, London broil in particular works very nicely with sous vide treatment. Chicken breast sous vide then grilled was amazing!

    Alton Brown (peace be upon him) has several episodes of Good Eats devoted to steak. I’m a very technical sort of nerd, so I always found Alton Brown’s combination of telling you how to do something along with explaining why you do that thing has been the best way for me to go from cooking newb to cooking well.

    For those interested in oven finishing steaks, check out this thread and, in particular, the 4th post (boar_d_laze). I learned more about cooking steaks *correctly* from this one post than from 20 years of practice prior to reading it. https://cheftalk.com/threads/finishing-a-steak-in-oven.41684/

    Coming back, still Infinity?

    I'm so very very tempted to be making my way to the club to play but, man, I'm being cautious with the current... health issues going around. It's hard. Especially living with people who are more at risk as well as having a fairly high risk occupation, I don't feel right taking the risk spreading things or contracting something.

    If you have space for it, a big dedicated chest freezer is your best bet. Then you can go to a good butcher and just buy a whole sheep, whole goat, whole pig, or half a cow. You’ll have to pay a lot in one lump sum, but it usually works out to be half (or less) the dollars per pound you’d be paying for individual packages at the supermarket.

    I'm on the carnivore diet so all i do is bbq the meats; however my seasonings are extremely limited. I only use charcoal. Ribeyes get the most grill time. I'll do carne asada from the meat market in Independence. The marinade they hook you up with is amazing. I also like tossing bacon on the grill to put over my roasts. I'll slow cook the roast in the instapot then toss it on the grill for some smoke flavor and let the bacon fat drip all over it. I don't add water to the roast and just let the big piece of fat create the juice needed. The cast iron gets used on the grill a lot. I'm a huge fan of cast iron cooking. Al pastor, steaks, etc. Cast iron cooking is my favorite way of cooking and the smoke flavor from the grill makes it more delicious. I love cooking and bbqing is the best!

    Benford's Law

    Any math nerds amongst nerds wanna nerd out on this? I was watching Connected on Netflix. Check it out if you get a chance. I like Latif Nasser from Radiolab but his curious and excited energy does offer a respite of the more thespian delivery of David Attenborough et al in a lot of documentaries. They had an episode on Benford's Law. In an idiot's words: basically if you choose a subject and choose random numbers of that subject, you'll find this weirdly consistent pattern in the numbers. About 30% of numbers in a data set are likely to begin with the digit "1". About 17% begin with 2, and so on, until the digit 9 at about 5%. It seems weirldy spooky at first right? I mean you can pretty reliably discover tax fraud with this law. If you look at all the numbers in a company or person's accounting and the numbers don't largely conform to Benford's Law, then you have a high degree of probability that they are cooking their books. Crazy, right? But is it that crazy? The whole episode I was thinking "this all makes a lot of sense." Think of it as just a general trends question--"more likely than not"/"less likely than not". Let's choose CDs/DVD owned (I apologize to anyone born this century). If you own CDs, can we agree that it's more likely you own a number of CDs ranging from 10 to 99 digits, as opposed to owning 9 or fewer? I think so. If you own in the double digits of CDs (where likely a large population of the US sits), is it more likely you'd have 10-19. 20-29, 30-39, etc? I dunno, but a fairly random distribution seems reasonable. But you probably have more people that own 10-19 CDs than own 90-99 CDs. Right? 10-19 would be a range that an aspiring collector might decide it's a waste of space, whereas a 90-99 owner is more likely to continue into 100+ than the 10-19 owner is to move into 20+. But what if we look at triple digit CD/DVD owners? I feel like owning discs in the 100-199 range is much, much higher than the 200-299 range. Benford's Law would suggest it's close to double which is verified by my scientific gut check. What about wealth? If you're a millionaire by definition, is it more likely that you have between 1 and 2 million or between 9 and 10 million? Of course the former, because more people can reach that benchmark than the 9-10 range. So Benford's Law itself as applied to the "random" occurrence of numbers (it's not actually random, we just expect it to be random because the pattern is larger than the human mind can arrange without help) does not confuse me. It's simply a function of counting which always starts small and gets bigger, fizzling out at some point due to whatever factors. That "fizzling" or attrition process makes Benford's Law a mathematical inevitability. Given a range of digits from 1-9, a number is more likely to begin with 1 than 2, more likely 2 than 3, more likely 3 than 4, and so on. The ONLY thing that actually interests me about this otherwise obvious pattern is the fairly consistent distribution across data sets. Around 30% 1s, around 17% 2s, etc until 5% 9s. That's a consistency that moves past the obvious conclusion that there are more 1s than 9s. So what's the deal?

    Benford's Law

    Right, that's basically what I "felt" when I watched the episode but couldn't articulate, despite a wall of rambling. The video explains it nicely. I'd summarize it to say: the chances of a choosing a random number that happens to begin with 1 in any given data set can never be lower than 11% (1 in 9). The odds can only go up from there, but average 30% On the other hand, the chances of the number beginning with a 9 can never be higher than 11% (but averages around 5%). This is because you can't get to 9 without having 1,2,3,4,5,6,7&8 already present and watering down your odds. Interesting stuff!

    If you pick a number, say 1000, to get to 2000 you have to double in magnitude. So you spend a lot of time in with the 1's as a leading digit. But if you choose 9000 and want to get to 10000 that is only a 11% increase to get out of the 9s as a leading digit to get back to the 1s. Here are people smarter then me that talk about it. I have been watching numberphile on youtube for a while because I find it fascinating.

    Ever done smoked ice? Sounds stupid but it's really great, had a neighbor that used to do it all the time. Makes bad whiskey good and good Bloody Mary's great. Next time you're smoking something over low heat, throw about 2-3 trays of ice into a metal bowl. Add to the smoker for about an hour. Refreeze and you're done! Works way better with the ice than just a tray/bowl of water.

    I second this. My family does it every year; we just got through a quarter cow, and we do a regular salmon share through Iliamna Fish Company. We also used to buy lots of 20 chickens from a farm out near Yamhill, but they stopped doing it... Word of warning, though: with the current supply chain problems, even whole or half animals are getting a little more difficult to find; we've been trying to source half an organic (etc.) hog, and have had some delays because of more demand than usual. Also, if you've never been to Gartner's Meat Market on Northeast Killingsworth, you owe it to yourself to visit. They're great. (Not cheap, but great.)
