Mr. Raichlen,   Thanks for taking time to answer our questions.        I have been eager to smoke my own meats, particularly pork belly to make bacon.   However, I only have a kettle style charcoal grill and a 3 burner (front to back configuration) gas grill.  Is there any way to use either of these to smoke meats at a reliable low temperature, or should I bit the bullet (all puns intended) and purchase a third box?   Thank you.
I make an eggless (Philadelphia style) vanilla that is pretty well received.  It's not as rich as a custard, or French style, but it is very tasty.   I use: 500 ml heavy cream 250 ml whole milk 100g granulated sugar a heavy pinch of salt 1 vanilla bean (I've only used Madagascar vanilla, but I hope to get my hands on some Mexican beans soon) 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract.   Cut the vanilla bean in half lengthwise and scrape out the pulp/seeds.

Hello.   I'm new to the site and am just introducing myself.  I'm a full time IT manager who'd rather be in the kitchen.  My culinary skills are limited, but I am always working to expand them.  Grilling, baking and making things from scratch are my top 3 I suppose.  By "from scratch" I mean getting to the root of a dish.  My next project is probably going to be making my own butter, from which I will make my own butterscotch, from which I will make ice cream.
