The Big Broadcast is a Sunday night tradition for families throughout the WAMU listening area.

Hi All, an early ping as I’ll be away from the computer until showtime.

We have a Suspense tonight...and a winter storm on the way here...

Hi, Vision!

I hope you stay safe and warm during the storm! I’ll see if I can work up a synopsis list here in a bit.

Hi, Vision,
I’ve just been doing house work, as usual, a little extra cleaning, so I didn’t end up stopping to do the list. Oh, well. We’ll hear it as it airs.

Did you have a good day today? Volunteering again?

Yea, today was good and the Feds just closed so I have the day off tomorrow. Kind of a crazy week with an insane supervisor, but all is well.

I've got a bbq assignment for you...

Also, with no good movies on TV last night I tuned into Hot Jazz Sat night.

Very cool on all of the above! Show me the barbecue! :-)

That jazz show rocks! You have a day off tomorrow, and that’s almost like Mardi Gras here—it’s Tuesday, although the parades have been going on for a few weeks now, “Carnival Season,” as it’s called. But, lots of people are off work on Fat Tuesday.

Your assignment is pork steaks. I mentioned these to you before but this is a new, and easy, method.

Get 1” thick pork steaks. I buy a boneless butt and slice them lengthwise.

Put your favorite pork rub on.

Smoke indirect at 275 - 300 until they reach 185. This took 3.5 hours Saturday.

Serve with bbq sauce on the side.

Report back.

Got it! Good suggestion to cut our own pork steaks from a butt! Hey, that sounds like a winner! :-) Stand by...

I had a feeling Shinn was a scared guy. It turned out sad.

I wonder if there is another show as good as GS. The acting, sound effects, sophisticated stories and raw emotion...it really stands out. Off the top of my head I can't think of another OTR series that was so well done.

...stories that can be brutal and also very intimate; in the same show.

Sounds good. We’ll try that recipe next weekend.

What kind of grill do you use?

I don’t know if I can go 3 hours on the green egg @ 275 without overcooking. Can I keep it @ about 200F?

Any suggestions?

I use a WSM.

What do you mean by “I don’t know if I can go 3 hours on the green egg @ 275 without overcooking. “

(I wouldn’t recommend 200.)

You don’t have to go 3 hrs, you need to take the steaks to 185f and mine stalled at 160 for over an hour.

We were just wondering how an indirect 275 to 300 degree grill could not overcook 1 inch pork steaks for that amount of time. No biggie.

Keith’s been running grills for about 35 years now, so he was curious. We’ll try this. It sounds excellent!

That’s a gut-wrenching read, the original story. Vincent Price is an amazing actor.

I’ve never been into Poe. Even having lived here and knowingly walked past his grave many times.
