King Crab Legs: Fit For A King

king-crab-legs-surf-and-turfAs the holidays near, I am starting to plan (er, have my people plan for me) what holiday dinners around our estate will be about. I get tired of the same old ham/turkey/whatever that seems to be the predominant theme around this time of year, and have been investigating different options.

What I've come up with for this year is a stockpile of King Crab Legs and Beef Tenderloin: A great surf & turf combo with the best of the sea and the best of the land. Lobster in my mind is over rated, especially those tiny little tails. I'm talking massive, colossal king crab legs, the kind where they weigh over 2lbs per leg!

As far as cooking them, Maurice, our chef will probably throw these legs under the broiler with some seasoning and butter. I'm still thinking about what to have as sides so if anyone has thoughts, we'd love to hear them.


Heritage Professional BBQ Grill Set

Need a good gift idea? If he or she is a griller, you'll want to check this out! The Heritage Professional Stainless Steel BBQ Tools Set contains everything you will need to go BAM! like Emeril. The set comes with a grill light (which attaches to the side of your grill), 3-in-1 waiter’s corkscrew, spatula, tongs, fork, knife, basting brush, two skewers, cleaning brush with scraper, and a Super-Bright Chef’s Fork. The computerized chef's fork is pretty cool. It has a spotlight and built-in thermometer with 16 "doneness" levels for cooking meats perfectly.

I find it annoying when I see rust on cooking utensils, luckily the BBQ tools are rust resistant, and are also easy to clean. The included tools have extra long rosewood handles to protect you from grilling your hands. I always enjoy cooking and not getting burned, because I find that getting burned can be very painful. I wish all kitchen utensils would have extra long rosewood handles. The tools are heat resistant, and are cleanly stored away in the provided molded case.

Wall Street Journal even named it the best overall BBQ tool set.
