Ppl who daven shmone esre loud enough to disturb the guy next to them

that's the same guy who stands up for shmone esre and just leaves his chair behind him instead of tucking it under the table.

Re: Atlanta Master Thread Wanna surprise my wife for her birthday. She loves aquariums.
Plan is to fly from LGA-ATL  on BA or SW, aquarium and coke museum, early dinner at Fuego Mundo and head home that night.
Feasible or too ambitious?

Smoking Meats So I got inspired at the Long Island kosher bbq competition and bought myself a charcoal kettle grill to start learning how to smoke meats. Anyone have any tip and tricks to share?

Re: Gas vs charcoal grill
Charcoal grills give a better flavor, but a gas grill can also produce excellent results so  most people opt for the ease of gas grill


I still use charcoal when I'm smoking meats but day to day grilling is on gas.

Re: Triangle k with grape juice concentrate ingredient
Unlikely that the minute made grape juice is yayin nesech (di'oraysa), if anything it's stam yaynom (dirabonon).

still assur

without really knowing OP it's hard to answer his question but most mainstream OJ organizations do not hold of triangle k

Re: Food/Recipe Thread
I sous-vide a 14 pound brisket at 150° and plan on finishing it off on a grill tonight. How long should (I have) sous-vide(ed) it?
24-48 hours :o

Re: Food/Recipe Thread
Why? I thought tougher cuts of meat are the ones that specifically benefit from sous vide

London broil is good with just a quick sear on both sides

Ush's "conference" in OGG   DISCLAIMER: I am not a writer so will not attempt to engage you in a well written TR. Instead I will provide some of the highlights of my trip so you can use them when planning your own Maui trip. (I’ll also try to wow you with some pictures and videos)
This whole idea started last year when I was in HNL for Shabbos and sat near a fellow dentite who was heading to Maui for a dental conference. I thought that was genius: combining a business expense with a beautiful location. As soon as I got home, I googled “dental conference Hawaii” and saw that this company offers courses every year.
 The next stage came when my favorite travel agent, AH, mentioned that there was a really good deal on delta flights in business JFK-HNL. Since this was going to be a “business trip,” I decided that it’s worth going with a revenue ticket (ie tax write-off) and getting the exact dates I needed. Of course my “office manager” (read: DW) needed to be at the conference as well. This was all about 8 months ago. Talk about advanced planning.
FLIGHT: DL JFK-HNL J revenue. HNL-OGG on HA booked with UA
Flying with someone, take the middle seats. You actually feel like you’re sitting next to them, no big divider. Flying alone, take the window.
DL had no problem checking bag through to OGG even though it was on HA booked with UA. You do need at least a 90 minute stopover for the computer to allow it though.
CAR: Hertz using points I bought a long time ago. Went with an SUV and got a Ford Explorer.
HOTEL: Hyatt Regency using points. Was 27k a night.
This is where conference was so it was the most convenient for me
Got upgraded to an ocean view suite. Was in the tower right by regency club so that was nice. Only issue was that it overlooked the luau so we had to deal with the noise until 9 each night.
FOOD: Brought frozen meals from home and bought a toaster in Walmart. Also bought a case of bottled water because hotel doesn’t provide any.
Looooooong flight. I would consider stopping in LA for a few days next time. Ate airline food; served meat at 11:00am. Was ok
Eventually landed in OGG. Took shuttle to hertz- no hiccups. Drove to Walmart to pick up toaster and water
Got to hotel and hondled a little to get upgrade and eventually got it.
Ate cold dinner we brought from NY
First day of conference so I actually had to go. Was rainy and windy day anyway.
Went to aquarium. Was ok, not great. (Atlanta aquarium blows it away).
Walked down Front Street. Banyan tree is very cool. All the stores are basically the same. Lots of timeshare selling people, very pushy.
Woke up early for sunrise on Haleakala. POURING RAIN! Left early. Beautiful weather on the bottom of the mountain. Go figure. I would check next time. Not completely accurate but the best there is
Went back to hotel for conference. Boring lecture so I left early. Hung out by the beach and pool.
Whale watching with Same size boat as PWF but half the crowd. Whales EVERYWHERE. We saw tail flapping, groups of competing males, and dozens of breaches!
Back to the hotel for dinner.
Our RTH day. Left hotel about 7:30. We really just followed along with the book and stopped at whatever sounded interesting
Twin Falls first stop. Good place to swim under a waterfall if you want; we didn’t. Bought a massive coconut to drink out of
Forgot about rainbow eucalyptus
Lot’s of pretty waterfalls to try out my a6000
Got to Sacred Pools about 1.5 hours before sunset. Pools were closed because of rock slide. Didn’t feel comfortable hiking to bamboo forest
Took south loop home. Awesome Views and great sunset!
Sunrise at Haleakala take 2. TOTALLY WORTH IT!
DW hung out at spa while I went to part of lecture
Hung out by pool and beach
Warren and Annabelle at night. Best magic/comedy show I have ever seen!
Flight to HNL on Island air booked with UA. If you can, try to fly HA instead.
Our carryon was weighed and they made s check it for another $35.
Don’t participate in TSA Precheck so had to wait on regular line
Propellor plane smells like you’re driving behind an old truck the entire flight
Juice drink is only 5% juice vs 12% on HA!!!!
Booked Hilton revenue. Cheaper than buying weekend certs. Totally shabbos friendly stairwell. Only issue we had was that when we taped door, it kept opening so I did the “tie-a-gartel-to-the-door-handle” trick. Only 10 minute walk from Chabad.
Nice relaxing shabbos with chabad. Good food, good company.
Hanauma Bay snorkeling. Went through hotel concierge. $25 for transportation and rental.
Flight home

Re: Kauai, HI Master Thread
how kosher is there "kosher" menu ??
is it OU glatt (equivalent)  ?  anyone knows the hashgacha ?

It's oahu kosher from the main island. That's the chabad. Most people I know rely on it.

Re: Smoking Meats I bought a 5 pound second cut brisket today but got lazy and decided to experiment. I lathered it up in mustard and applied a generous amount of big bad beef rub. This is the same prep I do for smoking. I put a rack in my instant pot, a little beef broth and a drop of liquid smoke on the bottom. I cooked it for 90 minutes at high pressure with a natural release. I then put it in the oven for a few minutes to dehydrate the bark. Holy cow was that good. Incredibly tender and flavorful.
A couple of tweaks I would make next time. First, I would add a little more liquid smoke. The smoke flavor I got was good but subtle. Second, I would lose the fat cap completely. No need when cooking with a pressure cooker. Third, I would cook it for a little less. The meat was one step before fall apart. I like my brisket with a little more chew.

Re: Brooklyn Restaurants While service is important, mazel is more important. I don't necessarily see a correlation between service/ food quality and restaurant success.
November 06, 2017, 11:44:36 AM
Re: Brooklyn Restaurants
yes but going once won't help them. They need repeat customers to stay in business

And the instagram that caused you to go was probably from someone who already went and enjoyed. If someone went and had bad service I don't think you end up there.

The Instagram was probably a kosher foodie who was either paid to be there or at least get a free meal

Re: Cleaning Glass Cups of the Menorah
Oil is thicker than water, soap is thicker than oil, so a good soap washes away oil.

Re: Brooklyn Restaurants
OOOH!!! any pics you could share or more info!!!

That deserves a new thread!!!

When you first get there they serve some Hors d'oeuvres which were amazing. The Chef gives a small lecture about where meat comes from and the different kinds of cuts. Very informative and entertaining. We then proceeded to break down the ribs.
There were different stations for different courses of the meal and everyone went around preparing.
The actual meal was incredible! As much as you wanted of several different kinds of meat. One of the sous chefs was also bartender, mixing whatever you wanted.

I can't recommend this experience enough. A little costly but you more then get what you pay for just in the amount of high end food you eat.

Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Master Thread
heard they are closing and will reopen after pesach as a high end restaurant.

In this neighborhood that just means charge more for the same food

Re: Global Entry
I have previously sign myself and my wife up for Global entry, however I am now going to be traveling with my kids (3&5) to Israel. Do I need to pay for them as well? Additionally, My wife is pregnant and is due about 3 months before we go to Israel. Do I need a Global Entry for the newborn? If I do, is there a way to speed up the process since the passport process will also take a little bit of time?

no point getting GE for children since they can't get fingerprinted. download mobile passport instead

Re: 5 Towns/Rockaway Master Thread
i didnt notice a takeout section or a menu, is it at the same entrance you just ask for takeout? do they have a shabbos/yom tov menu?

Also, anyone know of like a shwarma place in five towns open late (like midnight)? whats my best bet for after 11?
I think it's the entrance next door. The only thing I had from there was a smoked fish platter which was really good if you like that kind of thing .
