How To Grill a Gigantic Rib-Eye Steak

I have a 26.5" Weber with a cast iron grate insert. I light up hardwood chunck in a chimney until fire is seen out the top, drop in and leave the cover off the Weber until the fire is so hot i can only hold my hand over the grates for one second. The steaks should be room temperture now with plenty of kosher, course ground pepper, and olive oil (sometimes fresh rosemary). Throw on the hottest part of the grill, cover on after 30 seconds, and don't move until 5 minutes have past. Uncover, flip, repeat. Total cooking time is about 12 minutes and i always have a crusty exterier with pink mid-rare interior with little to no gray. Rest for 7 min

Habanero Jelly

I second the pork! Also great for 1) spread over a wedge of brie 2) mix 6oz of pepper jelly with 1 block of softened cream cheese, refrigerate and serve with Frito scoopers or crackers...sounds a little strange and simplistic,but it's a winner.

Looking for Apple wood chunks

Smoking a turkey on Thurs and would like to use apple wood. I live in Northern VA and ever since BBQ Galore closed down, I can't find decent wood chuncks...only chips. I called around to every mom-and-pop hardware store, big box stores, etc and no luck. Any ideas??

Toss the Chili?

I made some killer chili during the snow storm (Serious Eats recipe w/ short ribs) and kept forgetting to freeze the leftovers. After cooking, I put the whole pot in the snow to bring the temp down to the safe zone and kept it in my even 38 degree fridge. I finally got around to freezing 5 days later - it looked fine, but safe to eat? Maybe once I defrost, I can bring it to a boil just in case?
