5 T. soy sauce
3 T. red wine vinegar
2 T. Dijon mustard

If baking: Preheat oven to 350°, place marinated tenderloins in a pan and bake uncovered for 30 - 45 minutes per pound.

Barbecue Cooking

Meat of choice

Apply some of the oil and flavoring ingredients between the skin and the meat.

Always barbecue more than you intend to eat. Reheating frozen or refrigerated cooked meat is always tasty and very flavorful.

If you like to hot smoke (or roast) salmon always use alder wood which comes from the Pacific Northwest. If you cannot find alder, you may try cherry, peach, apple, or another fruit wood tree.

Most barbecue sauces contain tomatoes or sugar products which tend to burn at higher temperatures over longer periods of time. Don't grill with these ingredients and always apply them near the end of your cooking only when temperatures are lower.

If mixing dry ingredients, use a glass or plastic container and store the extra ingredients in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

When using dry rubs on meat, allow the meat to cook one-third to one-half the time before applying any basics. Applying too early will wash the rub off the meat.

For barbecuing, always make sure the temperature of the cooking chamber is between 210°-225°. This is the optimum range for the best results from your efforts. A cheap tin oven thermometer will do the trick.
You should cook port butts and the larger shoulders to 190° to render all the fat. Also, be sure to "chop, shred, or pull" the meat rather than "slice" for more moisture and tenderness.

Lump charcoal has very few impurities as compared to charcoal briquettes. Additionally, lump charcoal burns much faster and hotter than the charcoal briquettes which have far more impurities contained in the individual briquettes.

And lastly, wood chips (i.e. apple, oak, mesquite, hickory, cherry, orange and many others) can flavor meat cooked on either a gas grill or a wood burning pit.

There was recently a request for a peach cobbler recipe that was more like a pie than a traditional cobbler. this recipe may be of help and is from a 2008 newsletter, but I greatly regret that I have no idea who shared it.

I have a question for all Landers - Does anyone know where I can buy Oreo Cookie Crumbs? I went online and they said Walmart carries them but I can't find any at our Super Walmart and they also said K-Mart carries them but no luck there either.

Look in the baking aisle next to the preformed pie crust like graham crusts. You can easily make your own and it would be cheaper as well.. Buy any kind of chocolate sandwich cookie and put in the food processor and pulse to crumbs. Keep in plastic bag and use as needed. I don't like graham crackers so I tend to substitute these instead of a graham cracker crust with cheesecake or any kind of pie that calls for graham cracker crust.

You can get crushed Hydrox cookies (which are the same as Oreos) on line at Nuts.com. A one pound bag is $3.99 and a 5 pound bag is $19.35. They charge for shipping. I bought a five pound bag and kept it in the freezer for whenever I needed them. I hope this helps.

This is for Judy in Alaska who had a recipe for Baked Cream Cheese Fudge that appeared in the June 5, 2013 newsletter. I was wondering if you could use a different flavor of frosting for the fudge, like vanilla as I'm not a chocolate nut. Would you please let me know. thank you very much.

Here is another recipe for Gay in L.I. using lemon curd.

Roasted Chicken with Lemon Curd
Yield: 5 servings (serving size: 3 ounces chicken and 1 lemon half)

1 (3-1/2-pound) chicken
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 garlic cloves, crushed
Cooking spray
1/2 cup Lemon Curd
3 large lemons, halved
Fresh rosemary sprigs (optional)

Preheat oven to 450°.

Remove and discard giblets and neck from chicken. Rinse chicken with cold water; pat dry. Trim excess fat. Starting at neck cavity, loosen skin from breast and drumsticks by inserting fingers, gently pushing between skin and meat.

Combine the rosemary and the next 4 ingredients (rosemary through garlic). Rub mixture under loosened skin, and rub over breast and drumsticks. Lift wing tips up and over back; tuck under chicken.

Place the chicken, breast side up, on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Pierce the skin several times with a meat fork. Insert a meat thermometer into the meaty part of thigh, making sure not to touch bone; brush chicken with Lemon Curd. Arrange lemons around chicken. Bake at 450° for 30 minutes. Reduce the oven temperature to 350° (do not remove chicken from oven), and bake for an additional 1 hour or until thermometer registers 180°. (Cover the chicken loosely with foil if it gets too brown.) Remove the chicken from the oven. Cover the chicken loosely with foil, and let stand for 10 minutes. Discard skin. Serve with lemon halves, and garnish with rosemary, if desired.
