Smoke. Mesquite, hickory, apple wood, cherry. Whatever smoke the meat want, the meat gets.

Enter to Win a Ham Independence Day Package From La Quercia

I wouldn't want to be ham handed about it but I had a sick ham once. The doctor prescribed some meds and after a week I took my ham back for a check up. "He's cured," said the doc.

An Open Letter to Serious Eaters

I usually access the Serious Eats via a news reader. I then read the articles I want on SE.

What's frustrating to me is that, just barely over a week after I make my first post to Talk, they shut it down.

Just after I start to be more engaged with the site rather than just saving recipes, they switch to Facebook and Twitter. Frankly, my feeds (pardon the pun) on those sites are too cluttered already to add Serious Eats.

These changes make the site less useful to me, not more.

Serious Eats Magazine and Android

@BeavisPeters: You're completely right. I was one of the ones who asked about Android in the comments on the last issue. I started this thread when I saw the comments were closed on the latest issue post.

@Prawo Jazdy: I've tried the mobile version. It sucks on Android. I have wondered if it works any better on iOS devices.

Having said all this and complained so loudly, I also wonder if this is case of be careful what you wish for. I'd like to see what's in the magazine, which is why I keep bringing it up. But can anyone say the iOS version brings any added value for the price? As BeavisPeters said, the content should be on the site anyway.

Meet the Chinese Food Issue of the Serious Eats Magazine!


I understand your point about catering to the platform the majority of your visitors use. You don't want to lose those eyeballs.

However, when the majority your visitors use a platform which is losing market share you might want to also consider what you need to do to attract more visitors who use the platform with increasing market share.

What, if anything, are you doing to increase the proportion of Android OS visitors?

Perhaps your mobile readers on iOS outnumber Android users because you aren't friendly to Android users? I read the Serious Eats web site on a desktop computer because it's too hard to read on my smartphone or tablet. I don't know what the iOS experience is, but maybe the mobile version is tailored for it?

Count this as another vote for an Android version.

Super Bowl Party Giveaway: Pat LaFrieda Sliders

Wings, pigs in a blanket, buffalo chicken dip, I'm thinking maybe deep-fried bacon-wrapped hot dogs, and assorted liquid refreshments.

Super Bowl Party Giveaway: 17th Street BBQ Baby Back Ribs and Pulled Pork

Drove 50 miles out of the way (one way) for a hole in the wall BBQ joint while on a 1000+ mile drive.

It was worth it.

Oven-Roasted Tomato Caprese Salad

I like this recipe and will try it soon. When I make a caprese salad I often use sun dried tomatoes, for a similar reason you oven roast them.
