Applewood-Smoked Prime Rib Roast in a Smokin'Tex Electric Smoker, Dec. 31, 2010
Smoking a 7.8-lb boneless ribeye roast with applewood in my Smokin'Tex electric smoker on New Years Eve. I used only freshly-ground black pepper and butter on the meat (no salt.) The smoker was initially set at 200-degrees F but after 2 hours, I increased the temperature to 250-degrees because of time constraints. The roast was pulled out of the smoker after an internal temperature of 140 degrees was reached (after 3 hours 55 minutes of smoking time.) The roast was served with au jus and horseradish cream sauce. It was simply delicious. Happy New Year 2011 everyone!

How to Change Motor Oil of 2nd-Gen (2004 - 2009) Toyota Prius
This is how I change the oil of my 2007 Toyota Prius. I do this every 5,000 miles since it was new. This car has never been in a dealership or mechanic's shop for repair or even routine maintenances. I just change the oil myself and top off any fluids as needed and change an occasional dirty air filter or worn tires. The brake pads are still factory originals. I don't even bother to take it in for recall-related services (Why, if the car is running great?) I had a 2004 Prius that I did the same for 125,000 miles until it was totaled when it was rear-ended. It was running perfectly up until then. For this 2007 Prius, I average 44.6 MPG. It is a great car. STATUS REPORT Sept. 25, 2016: This car now has 155K on the odometer and I still do the same thing -- changing oil every 5,000 miles. The headlight went bad about 20,000 miles ago (it was going on and off randomly, the first sign of you needing a new headlight, so I took it to the dealer and had it changed (I forgot how much it costed but is wasn't as much as I had heard.) Since the headlights had to be changed, I also asked the dealer to change the brake pads and flush the radiator as well. The brakes were still factory up to that time and I nod no problems with it, but I though it was time to change them anyway.

DIY Cold Smoker Setup
My cold-smoker set-up. The firebox is a 14" Weber charcoal grill ($29 from Home Depot). The smoking chamber is from an old water smoker, with a 3" hole drilled to its side using a Harbor Freight electric power drill fitted with a bi-metal hole drill-bit, also from Harbor Freight. The smoke conduit is an 8-ft long, 3"-diameter semi-flexible aluminum heating duct (from Lowe's). It is really easy to make -- took me less than 30 minutes. Make sure you wear safety gargles when drilling sheet metal.

Quick & Easy Hard Apple Cider
Quick and easy hard apple cider, brewed right from the bottle using Costco's 100% fresh-pressed apple juice and a champagne wine yeast. Just add the yeast right into the bottle of apple juice, apply airlock and let ferment at room temperature for about 4 days. Once fermentation has ceased, just remove the airlock, recap and store the cider in the refrigerator. The starting specific gravity is about 1.050 and the ending specific gravity will be about 1.002, which will yield an ABV of about 5 - 6%, approximately equal to regular beers. If you prefer a slightly sweeter hard cider, with a little fizz, just add a little more fresh apple juice and close the lid tightly and allow it to ferment inside the bottle a little more (watch out for exploding bottles if you added too much new juice!) The finished product will be a little tart, crisp and refreshing, not unlike a champagne and much better than store-bought hard apple ciders. Enjoy! By the way, since I made this video, I have dispensed totally with the use of the airlock. It is not necessary. I just loosen the cap half-way to allow the carbon dioxide to freely escape while it ferments. It works perfectly. No oxygen is going to get in because the carbon dioxide keeps forming to flush it out. When the visible fermentation stops completely, I then tighten the cap and place the jug in the fridge for a day or so to carbonate the cider. Make sure you don't over-carbonate as there IS always a danger of building up too much pressure, causing a dangerous explosion (it has never happened to any of my brews and the sturdy plastic jugs can take a lot of pressure, even bulging slightly.) When I pour myself a cold, bubbly hard cider, the pressure is allowed to release at that time. I then tighten the cap again until the next pour. This system works perfectly (but always check the pressure to make sure it doesn't become a bomb!). Never shake the jug or otherwise disturb the yeast sediments!

Hiking L.A.: Mt. Baldy via the Ski Hut Trail, July 10, 2010
Hiking to the top of Mt. Baldy (Mt. San Antonio), elevation 10,064 ft, with a swell bunch of guys and gals from the Long Beach Canyon Hikers Meetup Group via the Ski Hut Trail. The hike was 8.4 miles round-trip with an elevation gain of 3,900 feet. Approximately 2.6 miles from the trailhead is the San Antonio Ski Hut, run by the Sierra Club (thus the trail name.) Mt. Baldy is the highest peak of the San Gabriel Range located in the Angeles National Forest in L.A. County. As you can see in this video, it is one of the most popular hiking trails in Southern California. The other way to ascend the mountain is by the Devil's Backbone Trail, which is 6.4 miles round-trip with an elevation gain of 2,200 ft.

Chinese Leather Patcher Sewing Machine Review: Singer Model 29K Clone?
This is a review of the Chinese-made leather patcher sewing machine that I bought recently from eBay, from an American vendor for $220 + $40 shipping (but may be obtained for as low as $215 total, including shipping from China). I believe this is a modified version of the Singer 29K leather patcher. It is sold in China as a "shoe-repair machine" or "shoe-mending machine" and is widely used by street cobblers in China to repair shoes, handbags and other thick leather/canvass products. Recently, it is available from eBay for purchase from different vendors, some shipped from the U.S. and others shipped directly from China. In the U.K., it is re-branded, beautified and sold as the "Able 290". Some models come with a metal tripod (useful only if you like to squat as you work, like Asian street cobblers). Since mine did not come with a tripod, I made a wooden base for it myself, which works just fine. This video will show you how the machine is treaded and operated. Hope this will help you to decide if you are in the market for an inexpensive "industrial-strength" walking-foot leather sewing machine. A higher-priced alternative would be the Techsew 2900 Patcher ($1900 from Amazon), which appears to be a true clone of the Singer 29K. A used, century-old genuine Singer 29K would run you well above $450, if you can find one.

Hickory-Smoked Chicken on the Stovetop in 10 Minutes
How to make delicious hickory-smoked chicken on the stovetop in 10 minutes without special equipments. The technique I described here is the Chinese sugar-tea wok-smoking technique known to Chinese housewives for centuries. But instead of tea leaves, I am using thinly-shaved hickory wood chips to give it an American flair (hickory sawdust will probably work even better.) Just use any store-bought rotisserie chicken as the starting point (here I used Costco's rotisserie chicken.) The end product is excellent as is but the smoke flavor, as with most smoked foods, will be enhanced after overnight refrigeration. You can use this smoking technique to smoke any kind of food -- sausages, hardboiled & marinated eggs, fish... Just use your imagination! Enjoy.

Cold-Smoking Foods -- Easy DIY Setup
This is how I cold-smoke various foods. Cold smoking is just a way of adding smoke flavor to your food without adding extra heat, so the foods are not cooked. Raw foods will remain raw after cold-smoking. Of course, the Costco Kirkland brand oven-browned turkey breast seen in this video is already fully-cooked before the cold-smoking process. I found this method of cold-smoking to be the most-satisfactory because it is so easy and there is virtually no clean-up -- just extinguish the charcoal fire, dump the ashes and hose down the smoking chamber. Have fun!

Hiking L.A.: Mt. Baden-Powell, June 11, 2010
Mt. Baden-Powell, elev. 9407 ft., is the 4th highest peak of the San Gabriel Range in Southern California. The trailhead is located at Vincent Gap on the Angeles Crest Highway, only a few miles beyond the Mountain High Ski Resort which I frequent during winters. The hike is 8 miles round-trip with an elevation gain of 2800 feet and is one of the best hikes in the Angeles National Forest. There are plenty of ancient-growth trees (some over 2000 years old) that provides plenty of shade almost all the way to the top. I did this hike on Friday, June 11, 2010.

Home-Made Leather Tote Bag, How I Did It
Made this leather tote bag for my daughter this weekend. Got the supplies from Tandy Leather Co. and it took me one day to complete the project. All seams were glued together using Barge Contact Cement first, then hand-sewn using saddle-stitching with waxed artificial sinew. The excess edges were then trimmed with scissors. The handles were cut from a double shoulder vegetable tanned cowhide leather, then applied with Super Sheen. I just got started with leathercrafting as a hobby a couple of months ago. Started with making knife sheaths first for myself until my daughters clamored for leather bags. I learned everything from Youtube.

Quick and easy way to make endless supply of your favorite yogurt. AIso, I just realized that we all have a huge yogurt maker in our homes. It is parked right in your driveway -- it is called YOUR CAR! Just put the inoculated milk inside the car, with the windows closed (depending on the temperature of the day of course, open windows slightly if it is too hot), and shield the milk from direct sunlight. The temperature can easily reach above 110-degrees F inside the car and makes for a perfect yogurt incubator. Environmentally friendly, too. Just don't leave your kids inside the car!
