  • Back again!   Man, those two recipes look great....still confused on the lemonade thingy :-)    No relation to Lanier in Montana....if you're on facebook, join us at Lanier Baits.    I'm doing 2 roasted chickens on my small and o…
  • Howdy again - I'm guessing every 6-8 months should be okay to keep some folks happy...that are not happy to see me again....dang, did I say that right :-)    Still cooking on the egg, fishing, and selling produce....and the son is still going st…
  • Nope - I didn't attend my own funeral :-)    Good to hear from you...figured I'd give you and a couple of others a shock.   Glad to see you guys are still going at it strong.  LJ
  • Might as well reply. I'm on here all the time looking. Just don't post anymore. I told Mickey that I'm in Ninja mode. Too many Exectuive Chefs on here for just a poor old egg enthusiast to feel comfortable. IMHO LJ
  • Just thought I'd drop in to say congrats to the fine folks. Still doing the "Ninja" thing... LJ
  • Mothership (BGE - just go to the website), Fred's music and BBQ, local dealer. If you check online for Big Green Egg tables or ceramic cooker tables - a ton will pop up. Cypress and cedar are the most popular in my eyes...both are very durable an…
  • Must be my redneck attitude. What's up Mick? Been a while and haven't even got a phone call from you. Thought about you the other day - I'll call you so answer the phone fool. LJ
  • Carzy Desert woman - you're too funny. While my wife sat next to me - I only counted 2 Eggs and something in a black dress. Fidel - anytime - I caught a ton of Spots the other day - stumbled across and little pocket behind Long Hollow in C…
  • Regular cedar because I knew that I was going to use a heavy stain/sealer. Mine is also on the nakedwhiz website...looks like one table but is actually two with the mini being portable that we can take on the pontoon boat. Many times - I'll pull t…
  • Dex - my two tables are both cedar with a California Red stain/sealer. It has been great...water just beads up on it and wipes right off. Thus far - not a bit of warping, splintering, and cleans up like the day I finished it. Let me know if you…
  • Boot - you will get some great ideas...not from me - never cooked one you...but I wanted to offer my asistance in eating it. :laugh: LJ
  • Several things - first...hell yeah I made them! You act like we have monkeys cooking around here. Crappie biting soon...they start to defrost around here in about another 2 weeks...white bass too...spotted bass about to get crazy and the stripe…
  • Grill Dome is a very nice cooker and they will stand behind their product. Primo is another very nice cooker and stand behind their product. BGE is a very nice product and stand behind their product. All 3 are a stones throw from each other and I…
  • I still want mine! Just let me or call the cell. If you need to add a couple more bags to my order, that's fine cut my original order and pissed me off so bad - I had to leave the forum a while. LJ
  • Not sure about paint but company up the road that sold me the stuff to buff it out with said it was the original gelcoat. That stuff had sand or something gritty in about bringing back the! Got to give some props to the wif…
  • The 394 is a big boat...should ride like your sitting on your couch. Boy - you put down some cash for a big 4-stroke...but they are nice and will last you forever. If I ever get to SoCal - you're on...I've heard all about the big bass in Californi…
  • Yep - fishing is about to get going on lanier - stirpers hitting decent right now but the spots are a bit cold unless you can a big school of them in deep water. Crappie isn't far off but the wter temp is still hovering in the high 40's low 50's. …
  • Leggo - mighty fine looking wangs! Man - they're talking snow and sleet here...but might miss me - I hope! Global Warming my butt :laugh: LJ
  • 5 - 3 guys - 2 leftovers for the oldest one the next day. He commutes to class and lives in his own apartment downstairs. Hell, I can't even get in his place unless I go outside and mosey down the decks...then knock on the door! :laug…
  • Thanks Ron - just let me know when - where - and how many pennies to bring. LJ
  • Hey Wess - you guys getting back to normal yet or still under 8' of snow! Man - I've been watching the weather on the east coast and those folks are getting it scary bad. I say we move to Key West and just worry about storms with a name! LJ
  • Wessb and I are on the same page (hey, might be a first Wess ) - a 2.5# butt will cook down to just a few sammiches. I know because I tested a 3# one the mini a while back and the dang thing almost disappeared! :laugh: Good eats though - LJ
  • Hungry - about 300-325 most of the time with a drip pan and water/vinegar mix. About the last hour or so - temp dropped to 250-260 area. We stand up the butts to start (got that from a forum member) and then lay them down after they've got some "s…
  • What's up dude? Chopped chick with a mustard base sauce sounds good. Oldest son asked about the sauce so I thought I'd give it a try. I'll have to pick up some W. Bros tomorrow if I can find it. Heck - I don't think I've ever looked for a mustar…
  • Hey Lee - you got a good mustard base sauce recipe...a good ol' South Carolina recipe? BTW - CW coming to town soon...going to hit the lake and wet a line. LJ
  • Hey - being a Saints fan and being married to one is a totally different thing. I'm telling you - this Cajun I married is off her rocker when it comes to LSU or the Saints! Bush in college at USC - that boy was lights out! One exciting player..…
  • Yeah...Go Saints....Go Saints! Uhhhhhh - wife is watching me type this...part of our bet. The other part was us going to visit the mother in law. Hold me Hoss - hold me. I don't know if I can take that... LJ
  • You're killing me Wessb! I had the Colts by at least 10...dang, now I have to hear my wife for weeks! I'll bet there's another Saints jersey in the house tomorrow! Damn... LJ
  • Yeah - change my mind right after it ended! :laugh: LJ
  • Yep - I've been watching BD for many, many years. I'm guessing you are a fisherman? Stripers, LM, both? LJ
