Tipping For Food Delivery

person ringing doorbell with food delivery

Tipping for food delivery can be depending on the food delivery service and the country, but in the United States, it is generally recommended to tip between 15% to 20% of the total order cost for food delivery.

This is the same compared to the tipping for restaurant dining.

However, you may also want to tip more for exceptional service or less for poor service.

Some restaurant food delivery apps also have a built-in tipping feature that allows you to tip the delivery person directly through the app.

It is also worth realizing that delivery fees and service charges do not typically go to the delivery person, so tipping when the food gets delivered is an important way to show appreciation for their work.

Can You Smoke Corned Beef Brisket?

Remember that summer camp of playful games, lively fishing, yummy food and bottled drinks. Well, to top it up, sometimes we decide to barbecue the meat ourselves and end up missing one flavour or the other.

So, now you ordered a corned beef brisket on one of the best favorite online meat delivery services and wonder how to smoke this great piece of meat?

This challenge to ‘get it right’ is especially true of smoking corned beef briskets which ends up as either too salty or less smoky. Let’ see how to do it right.

Corned Beef Briskets are smoked by placing them on a hot grill at a temperature of 250°F for about 10-18 hours until the internal temperature of the brisket hits closer to 200°F. Before smoking, the briskets have to be brined, cured and rubbed with spice mix. During the smoking process, apple juice should be sprayed regularly to keep the briskets moist.

As you may know, corned beef briskets are pieces which are cut off from the breast or lower chest pieces of mostly cows and which are then preserved through salt-curing.

Because of its long expiry duration, corned brisket is popular all across the world. But the best err-free way of smoking these briskets remains a puzzle to many of us. So, let’s crack this out.

How Often Should You Flip Pork Chops

We make the marinade in the morning, go to the office, and come back home at night to cook and savor the most delectable pork chops – well, that’s a fancy idea. But an idea that you could very easily put to practice. All you need to know are fine details about the art of cooking them. How many times we flip the pork chops is one such fine detail we should know.

The pork chops should be flipped when the first side is browned, which takes 5 to 10 minutes depending on the thickness of the pork. You have to continue cooking till the other side is browned and a thermometer inserted horizontally into the meat registers 130°F, another 5 to 10 minutes. The grill heat must be 400°F for boneless and 450°F for bone-in chops.

Pork chops – meat cuts taken from loin cuts of usually rib parts of a pig – are one of the most commonly consumed meats across the world. In the USA, for instance, pork chops account for 10% of the total pork consumption in a year. Pork chops are generally served as a single, individual portion and can also be served with accompaniments like applesauce, vegetables, and other sides.
