    Hardwood charcoal? :thumbup:

    FU coronavirus... We might be in lockdown but I can still eat like a Lord.

    Tempted to get the kettle fired up after seeing Quadbox's post, but it'll probably just go on the gas grill.
    Haven't decided what to serve it with yet...
    tbh I'm pretty tempted to just slap it on the barbie, slap it on a plate, and go to town.
    Maybe a bit of mustard as the Serving Suggestion.

    Yeah. Ostensibly Australian and sustainable, but who would know how much they're lying on that sadly, there's no standards. But the cooking results are good :p

    EDIT - I must say, BlueRaven , one of the things I love about a hibachi or this little weber-go-anywhere-knockoff is that the amount of charcoal involved is so trivial. Half a chimney of charcoal keeps this at temp for 3 hours roughly, and it takes about ten minutes for half a chimney to get to cooking temp, so it's not much if any more bother than gas, cleaning afterwards aside

    I checked the OP too, but covid has changed a lot of things for everyone.

    Unless scon or Amfibius /other Geek Food mods have a drama with it, I say we make this a literal "Show us ya daily [lockdown] grub" thread.

    I feel a bit guilty about it due to the way it's produced, but proper foie gras is something I've always wanted to try.
    I've had pate de foie gras out of a tin brought back from France, but that's not quite the same (although if anyone has any tins that they don't want just lying around, hit me up :D).

    Rib eye results. Kept it simple, just creamy mash with a pinch of nutmeg and some Dijon.
    Way rarer than I'd typically prefer, because rib eye:

    Not bad for $12. Some leftover bits to go on a roll tomorrow too. :thumbup:

    Made a pretty good brunch this morning, with a nod to MR CHILLED 's mention of scrambled eggs which got a bit of a craving going because I had not made it in forever either.
    Started out thinking I would just make basic eggs-on-toast, but I've been Binging With Babish a fair bit during lockdown so it ended up turning into something way more indulgent.

    End result, from the bottom up:
    - 2 slices Light Rye toast, with real butter (not dairy blend).
    - Generous portion of a 50/50 mix of finely grated tasty cheddar and English vintage cheddar.
    - Eggs, scrambled. No milk or anything else, just beaten eggs, unsalted butter in the pan, S & P to season.
    - Sauteed mushrooms/red capsicum/garlic with a pinch of fresh thyme leaves (finely chopped), S & P.
    - Dressed with a sprinkle of Tabasco sauce, a drizzle of Kewpie mayo and a bit of chopped parsley from the garden.

    My doctor would probably be horrified, and no photo because it was basically just a pile of food on a plate.
    But damn it was tasty!
