My gods, it takes for ever to boil 2.5 gallons of water.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Is that for the brine, or have you got something sinister going on?

    Sinister involves more massive quantities. Or at least that’s what I’ve read, I wouldn’t know about such things.

  3. alchemist says:

    Yeah – 2.5 gallons fo water, 2 cups kosher salt, 1 cup sugar, one head garlic, peeled (but not handled otherwise), three tablespoons dried thyme, two bay leaves, five whole allspice berries (crushed), four cranberries (crushed).

    It smells *REALLY* good this morning. And it’s still warm from last night.

  4. alchemist says:

    Very true. Although given the size of this new cookpot, there are some interesting possibilities…..

  5. flavor says:

    more time than .5 gallons on 5 burners that you dump into the big container once they’re all boiling. Course, it’s more dangerous too, but isn’t that the fun part? :)

  6. alchemist says:

    uh, no, the fun part was pouring 2.5 gallons of brine into a poultry bag w/out spilling any. *grin*
