What is the best dish(es) you make?

What food(s) do your friends/family most frequently request that you make for them?

Mine:
Seafood Paella
BBQ Pork Ribs
Guacamole
Creme Brûlée

The funniest part is that I don't eat pork or shellfish.

Mine are:
1. chicken tajine w/ fennel, onion, olives, and preserved lemons
2. beer can chicken
3. beef fillets on a skillet and finished in the oven
4. braised beef short ribs
5. hamburgers

Go to recipes are the tajine, burgers, and chicken because of time. Tajine takes maybe an hour but the prep can be done incredibly quickly though it's better if the chicken sits in the spices over night. Short ribs are the best thing I've ever made repeatedly. They are ridiculously time consuming though since you have to make the day prior then let sit overnight and reduce the next day prior to cooking.

The frosting is a mixture of melted chocolate, powder sugar and butter. The topping is melted and slightly burnt sugar

They are the best!! Only con is the price and its a single chamber. For the amateur smoker they are the best, by far! Sorry that's just my opinion!

"Asado" and "pollo al disco"... The disc where we cook the chicken is made with a disc from a disc harrow agricultural tool. We solder a lip around it (and erasing with solder the central hole on it) and 3 legs which usually are screwed to 3 nuts soldered under it, so you can make it smaller to carry around once the legs are unscrewed. You can make a lid to it using another disc with some kind of handle soldered on top. We use the "disc" a lot when cooking off-road...

Cheers,
