Hi Divey, welcome to a great site! I think you're on the right track, tho I don't know what a chicken "Maryland" is. If you use chicken thighs, deboned, and the skin that comes with them you won't need pork fat or anything else. Good idea about the blanched asparagus too, sounds like a nice recipe. Check out this page, there ton's of help right there. RAY

When I was typing "Maryland" I was wondering if was an Australian terminology only, and, I guess your post confirms that. Maryland here is the whole thigh and the drumstick together, it is often crumbed, grilled and served in Restaurants of old school simply as Chicken Maryland it is often accompanied with a slice of grilled pineapple. I'm getting on a bit now and you really don't see it offered much these days, however, the cut is readily available.

That is a very interesting link to the recipe data base. Thanks for that.

G'day Divey, welcome to the site mate, great people and a huge amount of experience here.

That recipe you have in mind sounds like "gourmet" tucker :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Be keen to see & hear how they turn out.

Well, I have gone ahead and knocked up the 2 kilos of boneless Chicken thighs and legs with skin on (in Australia it's known as a Maryland) with a recipe in which I have stolen a few ideas and added some of my own.

I linked them (pretty rough, but, I it's the best I can do at this present time) and now they are hanging in the cool room covered with a plastic bag to set for 24 hours.

I'll tell you what I did once the guinea pigs have tasted them and they give a full report back to me. If it's crap, there will be no report. :mrgreen:

Looks good Divey. What kind of stuffer are you using?

Best Wishes,

It's a manual 7 litre, 2 speed, horizontal job that I bought off eBay a week and a half ago. It's obviously made in China, however, I'm very impressed with it's performance. All stainless too.

Looks like good eats to me Divey.
Asparagus... I like that idea, and I love asparagus.

Well, you can't believe it! I'm in trouble already from my youngest Son who requested I make some Chicken Cheese and Asparagus sausages for him. He has told me that he only likes tinned asparagus and not fresh.

I hope he changes his mind when he tastes some later today.

Sometimes, you just can't win. :roll:

Is that boy too old to beat with a stick? Doesn't like fresh asparagas? that is apostacy. For that he could be burned at the stake. ;)

I too just love fresh Asparagus. We have a favourite Austrian restaurant which we go to quite often that has an entree of Fresh Asparagus, Black Forest Ham with Hollandaise Sauce. It is simply superb.

When I got back home from the indian casino I noticed that the number of replies for this entire thread numbered 666, the mark of the devil. I think there might have been a little devil in me the night this pic was taken, about 12 years back. The tusks were later pulled after being boiled out and given to a scrimshaw artist, she did some great work with them. Twas the ugliest wild pig I ever killed and took four hours to retrieve up the side of a canyon, broke a 1/2" rope four times, started to snow a hour in. It was the first shot taken with a Weatherby 300 mag Accumark, 4x16x50 Swarovski scope, 345 yards across a canyon according to the range finder. That rifle is gone but the scope is on my 270 WBY mag. My lifelong hunting partner and I are having quite the evening exchanging e-mails, we've killed TONS of stuff. Might just go kill some more stuff soon! RAY

I miss hunting a lot now. My knee, elbow with 2 plates and 24 screws just won't allow it anymore. All my BRNO rifles with Pecar scopes are sold, some firearms were given to my sons. My shoulder won't even allow me to shoot clays and skeet anymore.
Ray, keep on enjoying yourself hunting and bringing back the bacon. The time is approaching fast when all that is impossible.
So, get into it Young Man!!!!!!!!!
Good Luck,
Jan.

Yeah, I hear ya Jan! Yesterday when I got out of bed my left hip was so bad I could barely walk down the hall, hurt like hell. I've put off getting it replaced for about six years and now the right one probably needs replacing too. I managed to get out and whack a nice sow a couple months back and I'll be going for another in 2-3 months, but I'm certainly not dragging them up the side of a canyon anymore. Soon there will be football and nothing will be as important as TV! RAY

Hi Ray,
What I saw with hip replacements while in Hospital with my knee job was that old geezers walked much better than me in a shorter time. My cousin had a hip replacement done and he is back building houses again. At 72 years old he must be mad.
He's like me can't sit still.
Get that new hip Ray. You never regret it.
Cheers Mate.
Jan.

I'm approaching 75 and just finished installing a pull-down attic stair. Had a total right hip replacement In April 2010. It isn't wonderful but it works much better than the worn out one did.
