I've had BBS meet-ups at my house before. (ok well not *this* house, but at the old place) If there is sufficient interest and enough people who live within driving distance I'd consider doing it again.

But yes, I have over the last couple of days been giving a lot of consideration to learning how to cook teppanyaki. It just doesn't look all that difficult, from a culinary point of view. Just dump a bunch of butter, garlic, and soy sauce on everything, and cook on a very hot flat top. Practicing a bit of the theatrics would probably take more time.

If you have that get-together I'll see if I can nag Freakdog into showing up.

But... you'd have to learn how to make a Kosher cheesesteak...

Using non-dairy cheese? Dream on. Besides, if I do get a flat top for my grill, it would get seasoned with bacon fat long before I attempted to cook for the BBS crowd.

(I have had kosher-eating guests accept veggie burgers cooked on the same grill as deadcow-and-cheese burgers, as long as I put a piece of tinfoil underneath ... but everyone seems to have a different level of strictness to which they adhere.)

If I know Vince, his use of "Traif", in this context, has more to do with Passover than simply keeping kosher in general.

The Kosher Konundrum

RULE
It is not Kosher to have Meat and Dairy in the same container.

PROBLEM
Explain milk.
Milk is kosher and dairy.
Bovine Meat (cattle) is kosher and meat.
Milk comes from the Cow.

So, Freakie, explain how milk from the cow can be kosher?

The prohibition of combining meat and dairy is derived from Torah/OT verses telling us not to "boil a calf (or kid) in its mother's milk" [Ex. 23:19; Ex. 34:26; Deut. 14:21]. It could be argued that the cow from which the milk was produced is certainly not its own mother, so there is no possibility of that happening.

I'm certainly no expert on Kashrut though. My kitchen is run according to the NT so pretty much all of those rules are chukkim unless I'm serving a kosher-observing visitor ... which depending on how strict they are, may or may not be possible at all.

But today ... is Easter! I'm serving a dead pig to my family this afternoon.

No griddle top for my grill yet ... but I decided to start learning how to cook teppanyaki style food anyway, using my good old classic cast iron skillet (the same 12" Lodge most folks have). Obviously it took more time because I had to cook everything separately, but it really did work out great.

The cuisine itself is dead simple. At its most basic level you don't need much more than butter, garlic, and soy sauce. Of course the food can be made much more interesting with a couple of other ingredients. So for my inaugural meal I made fried rice, veggies (broccoli, zucchini, and onions), and chicken.
I can't wait to try it on a larger surface when I can get everything going at the same time.

This is the griddle top I want to get: [ http://goo.gl/4T659E ]

It is not kosher to prepare meat and dairy together in the same container or to consume meat and dairy, together.

If you've placed meat and dairy together in the same container, you are planning to prepare them together or consume them together. That is no bueno.

You are not, however, preparing the dairy cow for consumption at the same time it is preparing the milk for consumption.

Voila!!!

Well, the likelihood of a cow nursing another cow's calf, unless that other cow has been butchered (again, not likely if it's an actively producing dairy cow), is pretty low, so I'll dismiss that out of hand. LOL ;-)

Well, the kosher debate has proven an old cliche' to still be true:

Put two Jews in a room and let them argue.
They'll emerge with 3 or more opinions.

It gets worse with Jewish doctors. Put 5 of them in the room and you get 25 opinions.
