We knew we were at the right place when I found the booth selling chocolate covered bacon and white chocolate covered cheesecake with strawberry topping. We left our judges badges at home and had a great time. I never did get any shots of the cars because I was too busy eating. Sorry!

We tried some reverse-seared Picanha steaks last night and they were fantastic. This technique was fairly simple. We started with a 300 degree indirect fire for 20 minutes rotating the steaks once. The target temperature was 115 degrees. The steaks were taken out and rested for 10 minutes. During the rest the Big Green Egg was cranked up to 500 degrees direct fire. The steaks were finished with a searing of 1 minute on each side. This was the perfect medium rare cook. I think I will make a sandwich.

Last week while in Idaho, I stopped in at Tims Special Cut Meats Official to take a look. The first thing I saw was the bacon locker. Oh my, I was in bacon heaven. Look at all the choices. I left with tears in my eyes. The T.S.A. agents would have surely confiscated any purchases.

Last week I was in Idaho for the Buck Knives Collectors convention. I took a break from whoopee cushions and hand buzzers and went on a bike ride. I rented a bike and rode the scenic Hiawatha Trail. This trail is situated in the forested mountains on an abandoned railroad line. The best part of the ride it 15 mile ride that is all downhill. You travel through 10 large and very dark train tunnels. You cross 7 sky high train trestles. You also experience wild life and views that will be with you for a lifetime.
The very first tunnel is 1.6 miles long. You are required to bring a light to guide you through. Let me tell you it is dark. I turned off the light for kicks and got a sensory overload of speeding through darkness not in control. The light went back on very quick. The tunnel is very cool and moisture drips on you from the ceiling. You will get muddy.
What a fun ride of twists and turns and Mr. Deer munching on the side of the path. You get to the bottom and you are shuttled back to the top in an old school bus. The ride back in the bus is very scenic. I was having a blast in this bus and was getting flashbacks to summer camp of my youth. If you are ever in Idaho this is a must thing to do. Go ride a bike.
