    Good start.  Keep the pics coming?
  • Re: Pre-First Brisket questions

    I'm going to politely disagree.  I had some sliced leftover brisket at work yesterday that was reheated in a microwave and I enjoyed it very much. 

    Slice it and store it in a ziplock bag.  Reheat SLOWLY (30 or 40% power at most) after adding a little water to the bag.  It takes some monitoring and rotating to make sure the heat gets distributed evenly.  It is far better to go slow and be patient (something not usually associated with microwave cooking) than to go fast and end up with some parts rubbery and some parts still cold.  The sliced brisket will soak up the water and the water will help distribute the heat more evenly.  When part of the bag is hot to the touch, pull it out and let it sit for a few more minutes so the heat to evenly distribute - then serve. 

    This is not as good as getting it sliced fresh after the initial cook but it is usually quite good.  Occasionally, it is better - if the brisket ended up a little dry this moistened version will be better.

    @SGH, my best effort ever was 36 slices of pizza - about half of them were the thick slices... But I lost that bet to a friend half my size who ate only thin slices and finished off 37, so I had to buy dinner for both of us at the $3.99 pizza buffet.
    I've also been refused service at Sonny's BBQ on Sunday "all you can eat BBQ chicken" night after going there 3 Sundays in a row. So, I'm no slouch, but that was many years ago. At this point I'm pretty sure you'll out eat me, but we'll both have a grand time in the process. A steak or 10 sounds perfect.
  • Re: mini question

    It's becoming pretty clear to me that at some point, I'm going to have to have an eating contest with @SGH and play @Eggcelsior 1-on-1 in basketball... with any luck I'll do both of them on the same day.  Even if I lose at both of them it'll be a fun day all around, especially if the day ends with a PBR drinking contest with @henapple which I will undoubtedly lose, but enjoy nonetheless.

    I enjoy gluttony like SGH but also enjoy fitness.  2 dozen Krispy Kreme glazed doughnuts is just a start for me.  Small meals just piss me off.  So, I often skip meals as I find that much preferable to eating a small meal.  And I work out and run to stay fit.

    So - getting to the point of this thread - there is no mini BGE in my future.

    Strong work.  And the teacher sounds like a good fit for that age.
