    Thanks for asking. It's still pretty tender but she is moving around pretty well. They taped her up and letting it heal without a cast. Clean break all they way through middle toe right at the base of her foot. Another MM and she would be in surgery today. Lucky us! She should be OK within a few weeks.

    Scrumptious seafood on Sunday. You have out done yourself, my friend. You can expect a response to this cook shortly. Any trouble stabilizing the oil temp? How did it relate to dome temp?
    Be careful, man! I've got a beverage here.
  • MickeyMickey Posts: 17,323
    No dome as it stayed open. About 5 min between cooks to bring oil back to 375. Last cook was running low on lump and took the Woo off to get closer to heat.
    He used a pella pan to do chicken as to keep flat yesterday.
    I think I will do oysters in the Mini next fest.

    Look to your left: rum & coke, tall rum & coke. Kristi I gained 6 lbs READING your blog on Austin. Hell, we go to Austin almost every weekend and don't eat out that much in 2 months. . Do you weigh 345 and photoshop your pics?
