    Joseph's 42-day dry-age 6/lb porterhouse w/tail attached. Frankly I don't know whether to buy it a ring, take it to Greece for vacation or two-stage lump charcoal grill to a perfect med-rare.

    I introduced the neighbor to Joseph’s. She insisted on getting this beauty for me to cook for the four of us as thanks for the times we have fed them. I offered to buy, split etc. But she was not giving an inch. What she does not get is I like to cook for people, makes me happy. No need to repay in any way.

    Pictured is for 4-adults, I'm guessing there will be leftovers.

    Quite the hunk of burning love, The XL size Joseph's Porterhouse was one of the best steaks I've had the pleasure of eating.

    You mean pictured 6/lb dry-age porterhouse gorgeous hunk of pure beefy love?

    No idea on how long it took, I Do Not cook meat to time, especially something that large over live fire. I will say, often, it takes less time than one might think to come up to the proper temp.

    In this instance I used a Weber 26.5 inch kettle grill and two stage fire. Cooked the steak bone toward the fire on the off side, flipping every once in a while.

    When internal temp reached 110° ish I placed it over the coals to char for a short time then rested for 14 minutes. Carry forward cooking brought the internal temp up to the mid 120s. Just shy of med-rare is the goal. I go into more detail on my preferred method on the previous page of this thread.

    Thermapen is your friend.

    Classic Super-Fast® Thermapen® Current price is $67.15, a very good deal.

    Cooking to a set time is for suckers, unless one is baking a cake.

    Joseph's Finest Meats. Large well managed crowd pre Christmas, two lines, shop and pre-order. We were pre-order and it went fairly quick. A 5/lb, that's right, 5/lb, 51-day dry-age porterhouse and three pounds of natural casing hot dogs. Steak is for Friday, few hot dogs for lunch today.

    Hat Tip to our neighbor Michelle, she received a work bonus and asked if we minded if she spent some on Joseph's meat for our in-the-bubble Christmas dinner. We graciously said OK :)~

    Gigantic 55-day dry-age porterhouse from Joseph's Finest Meats was spectacular. Though I was unreasonably happy about not cutting myself on the mandolin for Potatoes Anna. A wonderful holiday at the neighbors with Charles the Dog.

    Side Note: If you have not visited Old School butcher Joseph's Finest Meats go soon and wonder why you have never been before. Count me a Fan! is understatement.

    Can't agree enough about Joseph's. So dang friendly and their beef is top notch with very reasonable pricing for the quality.

    In another thread in which you and I were discussing mandolins, someone ( I'm sorry to whoever it was - I cannot remember ) suggested oyster shucking gloves rather than using the guard. https://www.amazon.com/Dowellife-Resist ... 290&sr=8-3 These gloves changed everything about mandolins for me. You need to get them

    Agree that Joseph's is a fine butcher shop. Recently cooked up some of their excellent mild Italian sausage. Finer grind than many, plenty of fennel flavor. Delicious.

    I'd go more often if it weren't a 40 mile round trip.
    Where there’s smoke, there may be salmon.

    That was one of the benefits of early covid. Now with traffic, that drive through portage and old Irving Park is less pleasant!

    Joseph's uses hog casing for the hot dogs which may get tough with a rolling boil. I drop* into cold water and bring to a simmer, 185° to 190°, for 7-9 minutes for best results.

    *drop into the pot, not on the floor

    Updated note to add: Simmering at 160° or below results in a more tender casing.

    I buy natural casing dogs of various types. Sometimes people have had problems with the casing. I tried this method today to overcome any potential issues with casings. It seemed to work out pretty well.

    I had a natural casing hot dog at a hot dog stand yesterday. I had problems tearing the casing with each bite. Today I decided to give your method a shot.
