The Food Lab's Complete Guide to Sous Vide Barbecue Pork Ribs

I will not insult, only point out that doing these in a smoker takes a third of the time (but if you've got the time and no smoker, go for it!)

The Best Smokers Under $500, 2015 Edition

I cold smoke foods all the time. You just have to get the nitr*tes right, which is as simple as weighing your meat and calculating the right amount of cure to use. But it does require some degree of intelligence and common sense, so I could understand why most people wouldn't advice people on the Internet to try it ;-)

Been following Craig since at least 2007. Love you guys.

How to Make The Best Tomato-Basil Pasta Salad

How to Export Your Recipe Box When Ziplist Shuts Down

Also I never created an account with ziplist, so I am unable to do that export either.

How to Export Your Recipe Box When Ziplist Shuts Down

Why did Favorites go away again? And why can't they come back? I have about four years' worth of Favorites on this site.

Tiny Ovens, Hidden Cranberries: How to Survive Thanksgiving in Paris

And I forgot to mention, Marks & Spencers has a ton of things that will help out American festivities... Notably baking powder that doesn't cost 5 euros a box.

Tiny Ovens, Hidden Cranberries: How to Survive Thanksgiving in Paris

You forgot one other option for Thanksgiving: drive out to the suburbs where the expats have "real" ovens ;-) and turkey fryers...

I gotta say about Thanksgiving, I hardly go there anymore. The prices are INSANE - I mean, if you're living in the Marais you're used to that, but I have found things like brown sugar, American craft beer, and even Snyder's honey mustard pretzels in Monoprix, Auchan and others. Somebody should build out a web app for locating these sorts of things in Paris... Not that I'm volunteering or anything...

The New Anova Precision Cooker Promises to Be the Best, Most Cost-Effective Sous Vide Solution on the Market

Not to put a damper on the party or anything, but you should take that September/October "release date" with just about the biggest grain of salt you can manage. I received my Nomikus last week, TWO YEARS after backing. If it's on Kickstarter, it's going to take forever to get to you.

Chain Reaction: We Try McDonald's Bacon Clubhouse Sandwiches

Ahha. So this is what has been advertised here in France as the "Chicago Classic."

Bake the Book: Frenchie

I'm good, I live here already. Also if you go to Frenchie To Go, and it's too packed (which is to say, always), go around the corner to 73 rue d'aboukir and my buddy AJ always has some great stuff on the menu.

How Japanese-Style Slow-Drip Coffee Brewers Work

PSFam, do you have any links that show how to build one of these using the materials you mentioned?

Bouchon Bakery Gets Into the Canele Game

Maybe it's the lighting, but that canelé looks burned. A deep dark brown color is ideal, but that right there is verging on black. I notice this with NYC-area boulangerie-type posts on SE, seems that you guys like overbaking.

Fresh Suds and Friendly Service at Paulaner Bräuhaus, NYC

:-O $9? Even in f-ing PARIS I can get a pint of Paulaner for 5 euros / $7.

Raffetto's is Your Century-Old Fresh Pasta Destination

I knew the place you were talking about before I even saw the name or address. I used to work next door to this place, and was in there _all_ the time. May its pasta be of unsurpassed excellence and its ledger in the black for another 100 years.
