We are about to get an All-you-can-eat poutine restaurant. PoutineVille will be located in the Annex, (Bloor St. and Brunswick Avenue area) and will have a $15 all-you-can-eat menu option called the “Heart Attack Challenge”. Diners can also chose from a list of specialty poutines or have the option of creating their own poutine creations from a list of a la carte ingredients. PoutineVille will open in the summer of 2015.

That first one looks like your arteries will clog up after you're done. Wow.

Here you go HC, a couple of firm favourites from my brothers stable of curry heaven.
Let me know if you can't read the text and I will type them out in a PM for you.
Good luck finding the spices, they are pretty standard.

And enjoy with a nice cold Tiger Beer or similar. (Or 5)

OK I'm planning on using these too!! Love me some Korma / Tikka / Vindaloo / Paneer hell it's all good...anyway as I read this the one thing I do is get full fat coconut milk not the light. I just prefer the richness it adds...oh and Chang for the beer...sure it's Thai but nice light pairing with indian or thai and other spicy foods.

Good tip Dog, and just because it's says the chillies are 'anal'gesic don't be tempted to put them anywhere but in the curry, or you may suffer from a ring of fire!

Sounds like a good deal when I come over to visit with my snowboard. You cook the curry, I'll bring the beers...

This is the perfect time of the year for this recipe in these parts, as the surrounding fields are full of the adorable fluffy walking meals of deliciousness.

I'm assuming the monthly food drop into the desert might have some lamb in it for you HC. Hope you can read the text as its from the first edition 'Weber Cookbook'.
A firm favourite, and the leftovers never hang around for long.

As I mentioned, just carve it up with a big plate of pittas, fresh coriander, and some mint yoghurt (tzatziki) and just let people help themselves...
Enjoy.

Oh, wow! That's on the list for this summer!

How is that book? Worth a purchase?

I'd say the book is a must have for any other outdoor chef, but as you are the Grill King, it may have a lot of info that you can do with your eyes shut.

It has a heap of great tips for using the Webers direct/ indirect grilling methods which I was unfamiliar with.
And I have to admit, the recipes aren't just thrown together, there are a lot of really amazing ideas in there with all the sauces/ sides etc.
Well explained with useful pictures.

I actually got the 2nd edition which has some great recipes, so I stole the Lamb dish from my brothers copy.

I'll check it out.

Here's a great one with some really good recipes including pics. Also has some good beginner techniques and tips.

Is this where we talk barbecue?

If so, here's my review of the Pit Barrel Cooker and some baby back ribs. Sorry - the vox level was really low with the GoPro. Need to try some different type of mic.

That looked yummy Spike.

We took our boys to the Rainforest Cafe in London yesterday, because the youngest is doing a project on the Rainforest and his teacher suggested it. (That wasn't the limit of his research... mum took took them to London Zoo whilst I was at work.)

Anyhow both Reb and I got ribs, which quite frankly were pretty disappointing - even though I didn't start with high expectations! Bone dry (the meat that is) and pretty tasteless. with an almost jerky texture at one side.

Yours on the other hand are making my mouth water, even though I've had my dinner already tonight.

Finally had some authentic Canadian poutine at the Moon Under Water brewpub in Victoria, while drinking Canadian craft beer and watching the Canadian World Cup team dominate the Europeans last week.

I wasn't sure how it would be as it was actually on the menu as a "Fry Bowl" that you could add Poutine to. So it was pretty basic. Fries, cheese curds, brown gravy. But damn, it was crazy good.

It's a simple, yet amazing combination. Where I grew up, we usually used brown gravy to dip fries in as apposed to ketchup (I hate ketchup).

I only eat ketchup with scrambled eggs. And even then generally prefer salsa or hot sauce of some kind. Fries I've generally done ranch with a huge amount of black pepper in it, but I'm sold on brown gravy now.

People always look at me weird when I bring it up, but come on, think about it. It's potatoes. That's what gravy is MADE for!

Gravy with fries is how it's done here, it's the norm here.
