So the salmon wouldn't be deep fried but rather half of it in oil, then flip right?

The potatoes and the rest get done in a separate pan, then transfered to a second pan with butter and wine? I'm going to try this.
No the salmon is being poached in the oil so the oil should be high enough too cover the fish (at least this is how I learned to do, jeremy may have a different way) The oil should be between 170-180F and the fish should take about 10 minutes to cook. If a fork penetrates easily its probably done. The key is the very careful when lowering and raising the fish into and out of the oil. Use good olive oil and flavour it with a few bay leaves or perhaps a couple of sprigs of dill and its devine.

I will put mine against his any day. Matter of fact...mine have beat his the last 3 years running. A couple of new players this past year. I would say neither of us are the top tire guys anymore but I am working on it.

Can I come in my full Toronto Maple Leafs replica team uniform and equipment? I've been leaving my pro cycling team kit at home for all of your sakes.



PS. I don't even have skates.

You need to work on being a shameless self promoter with a funny helmet and get in the newspaper then.

Not that albert is a shameless self promoter, but there is obviously some self promotion involved in being king of any trivial local activity.

Great.

What time do you open tomorrow? I might come by early. I have some things that need to be taken care of. And can you give me a rough price for a fixed wheel build with a rim I have? Not looking too expensive a hub. For the dead sexy Wheeler you saw on Sat.

Thanks

I roasted coffee once at work, can't remeber for what though. Wasn't to drink. Must have been some weird a$$ sauce at the Granite. Almost as much smoke as when I used a wok to smoke duck breasts. Not an at home recipe that one. How's it taste?

I have cold smoked before, chilly today infact when I went out for one.

Sorry, feeling a little smart today. I have cold smoked lobster before. I used a large cookie tin with a metal rack placed inside it. Had some wood chips, really small ones like the size of sawdust really, and once they were smoking placed the lobster on top of the rach, putthe lid on the tin and put it in the freezer. Kept checking to see how it was doing every so often. Worked pretty. Not sure how well it would work for bacon. Are you talking about the whole process, bringing the meat, cold storing etc, or smoking bacon from the butcher?

That type of heavy duty smoking is beyond my knowledge in terms of making your own. Good luck.

good.... I mean, darn don't go.

And to echo the moaning in the main forum, what's up with the Toronto fixed forum? When I was one and twenty, it was never like this.. hip hop and cold smokers, it's enough to make you weep.

Okay, enough pathos, back to your regular programming.

I busted my chain last night on the way home. It was really strange, the SRAM quick connect link actually cracked accross the plate at the keyhole shaped slot-I'll post a picture if anyone is interested. I can't tell weather this was the primary failure, because the pin on the link had been pulled out of it's press fit as well. I suspect the pin came out first, and then the plate snapped in bending. Anyway, I remember I posted a few months ago about never having a problem with these links....well, now I have.

Anyway, skating your bike for 10 km like a scooter is actually easier than I thought it would be, but people look at you funny.

Nope. I don't carry one-never broken a chain before. I think I'll pick one up, and carry a section of chain from now on. I'd hate to get stuck 60 km north of the city with no chain.
