I made chili tonight.

Damn it was good.

Very close to AK Chili  from Dinosaur.  It was also the most major "operation" I've ever had to do to a piece of meat to prepare it.  I used the part called the "picnic" out of the shoulder.  As i was preparing it, I thought "There is no way this is going to be fork tender when I cook it.".

Guess I was wrong.  It just melted in my mouth.

The fact that it was cooked for nearly 3 hours probably helped too.  The only down side was the beans.  They were only cooked in the chili for the last half hour.  I think that next time I make it, I will put the beans in earlier.

The recipie can be found in the Charter Issue of Cook's Country.  (From the same people who make Cook's Illustrated.)

Yeah, I think they just gained a subscriber.

And the chili?  Dinner for Tuesday and Wednesday.

Next culinary experiment to try: Cheesecake.  But for the life of me, I could not find a 9" round by 3" deep round pan in any store around here.  I hope it'll fit in something smaller.  (Like the 9 x 1.75 that I do have.  *sigh*)
