Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p The primary title (listed first) is the on-screen title of the episode, confirmed by what is written on AB's refrigerator. The alternate title, where present, is the one used by the Food Network web site, with rare exceptions.
  2. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o Production code from Episode Guide. All episodes after May 2005 were produced in high definition. High-def versions have an 'H' suffix added to the production code. It is believed that low-def versions use the same code with no suffix. The suffix is not used here. (Note also that the format of the production code changed after May 2005.)
  3. ^ See 403 "Fry Hard II: The Chicken" for how cast iron skillets are made.
  4. ^ Non-stick cookware is recommended but not discussed.
  5. ^ First appearance of equipment expert "W".
  6. ^ See 1015 "Bowl O' Bayou" for more about roux.
  7. ^ The specialized roux whisk is not mentioned. See 303 "Egg Files II".
  8. ^ AB discusses the merits of a standalone fryer, then chooses a Dutch oven. See 715 "The Man Food Show" for more on fryers.
  9. ^ Semi-sequel to Special #1, "Romancing the Bird".
  10. ^ See also 719 "Toast Modern".
  11. ^ "W" is revealed to be a cyborg.
  12. ^ See also 715 "The Man Food Show".

  14. ^ See also 101 "Steak Your Claim".
  15. ^ See also 1409 "Oat Cuisine II".
  16. ^ See also 1411 "Squash Court II".
  17. ^ "W" is introduced as 'Vicky Wong' (doubtless a cover name). She is also referred to as 'Miss Wong' in 902 "Dis-Kabob-Ulated".
  18. ^ The subject is referred to internally (and in later episodes) as "barbecue".
  19. ^ See 401 "Where There's Smoke, There's Fish" for a different kind of DIY smoker.
  20. ^ See 909 "The Waffle Truth".
  21. ^ See also 1307 "Another Man Food Show: Breakfast".
  22. ^ Featuring the Sand-o-squeeze 3000 vs. a pile of bricks. See 202 "For Whom the Cheese Melts" for another DIY press.
  23. ^ A type of cheese spread made from leftover cheese
  24. ^ See also 202 "For Whom the Cheese Melts".
  25. ^ Topic is ostensibly in reaction to AB's "Stuffing is evil" declaration in "Romancing the Bird".
  26. ^ See also 1202 "Celeryman".
  27. ^ The full title "Dr. Strangeloaf (Or: How I learned to stop worrying and love the bread)" appears only on AB's refrigerator.
  28. ^ [1] The 'client's' house (at least the interior) used in this episode was AB's own. (He moved in 2006.)

  39. ^ For part I see 916 "Raising the Bar".
  40. ^ The episode title was changed in mid-production, and both titles appear on AB's refrigerator.
  41. ^ The show title on AB's fridge is in Japanese. AB says that the literal translation is "flour like gauze" or "batter-like revealing dress", but the Food Network translates it simply as "Tempura".
  42. ^ For part I see 502 "Oat Cuisine".
  43. ^ For part I see 510 "Squash Court".
  44. ^ The title refers back to 1312 "The 'Proof' is in the Pudding"
  45. ^ See 314 "Behind the Bird" for what to do with leftovers, and 812 "Stuff It" if you really must have stuffing.
