Bool kogi is eaten like moo shu or fajitas, using lettuce instead of a pancake or tortilla.
The pork shoulder may be the world’s simplest cut of meat to cook. Simpler than steak. Simpler than brisket. Simpler than ribs. But simple doesn’t mean simple-minded. You’ll need to know about some essential gear and techniques to get it right.
Grilled pizza is easy to make, impressive to serve, and arguably one of the best things you’ll ever put in your mouth. Enough said.
