Taking it slow gives baked beans a kick

By JOHN BERRY Times Herald Staff Baked beans seem like something that should be vegetarian friendly without much effort, but to buy them in the store takes effort.

Red Robin Adds World’s Hottest Pepper to Its Burger Roster

If the summer heatwave isn’t hot enough for you, head to Red Robin to have the hottest summer ever. The casual dining

Ghost Burger from Red Robin

FIERY GHOST This combo of ghost pepper sauce with both fresh and fried jalapeños will have you seeing things.

chain just became the first of its size to offer one of the world’s hottest peppers on record, the ghost pepper, on its menu.

Red Robin is challenging diners to test their tongues by adding two burgers to their roster. The first is the Fiery Ghost — a burger with ghost peppers plus fried jalapeños and pepper jack cheese. The second is the Cry Baby, which, according to the press release, combines “crispy onion straws tossed in a unique Sriracha dry seasoning with even more onions sauteed in Choulula Hot Sauce.” For a little more fire, its topped with ghost pepper ketchup.

According to the Scoville Scale, which measures the heat of hot peppers, the ghost pepper (a.k.a. Bhut Jolokia) hits 1,000,000 heat units. Compare that to the Habanero chili, which falls at around 100,000, or the jalapeño, which only scores about 3,500 to 8,000. The next step above the ghost pepper is pepper spray, which we all know is something to avoid.

“I just ate the worlds hottest hot sauce!”

Any sauce that says it is the “World’s hottest” and it isn’t 16 million scoville units is lying to you. It is highly unlikely that you will eat it and I do not recommend that you do, but it is a sauce none the less. And since it is 16 million scoville units it is not possible to get any hotter. Unless of course you eat lava and I have heard the two compared and most of the time people will choose the lava.

Burgers ‘n Dogs

Hamburgers and hot dogs are a big part of summer eating but they don’t have to be a diet disaster. Start with a 100% whole wheat bun instead of white for a healthy dose of fiber and watch the fat content of the meat. The average beef and pork hot dog contains about 180 calories and 17 grams of fat before you add a bun and toppings. Turkey dogs are tasty and won’t sabotage your diet—you can have two of them for less than100 calories. If you’re going for a burger, stay away from the high-fat toppings like cheese, mayo and bacon. Choose cheese slices made with skim milk to reduce the fat content and load your burger with mustard and fresh veggies instead. Here’s the burger ‘n dog breakdown:

1 lb of Habanero
1 Gal of vinegar
Half a cup of salt
4 garlic cloves. Not the small pieces that come off but the entire clove.
Juice of 2 limes
Juice of 2 lemons
3 lbs of tomatoes

Blend everything only ad the vinegar to make it easier to blend about 1-3 cups should be good.
Add the remaining vinegar Cover and let it set for a week. You will probably need a 2 gal bucket.

The best thing is to get a 5 gal glass water jug and a stir plate from Kegkits.com this will allow everything to stir and mix together. The vinegar is going to keep everything from spoiling. The longer the better, Tabasco sits up for 7 years.

Central Texas: Austin & Surrounding Hill Country

Here, it’s all about the supremacy of the meat, seasoned simply with salt and pepper and smoked over oak wood. Sauce is discouraged for slow-cooked beef brisket, black and crackled like bark on top and pink-tender within; spicy hand-cranked sausages (known locally as “hot guts”); and hulking slabs of pork ribs, heaped onto plastic trays with pickles and white bread. In Austin, buzzy Franklin BBQ’s Aaron Franklin spends 14 hours smoking his salt-and-pepper-rubbed brisket, which usually sells out in less than three. A classic institution built in 1924, Smitty’s in Lockhart is cavernous and dark, with smoke pits turning out remarkable fatty brisket and leaner shoulder clod, all served sans silverware.
