  • Re: Completely OT: Is this okay for a guy?

    Ridiculous...his wall, his sign in his home...nobody else's effing business. Try to tell me how to decorate my own house and the only other thing you will see there is the door.
    Perhaps his mother gave it to him and what is more manly than keeping mom happy?
    Perhaps a potential girlfriend gave it to him and he is trying to make her happy?
    Perhaps it makes him happy?
    Perhaps I really don't care either way.

    Still not ok!!
    Sure it is. Again, not your house.
    Wouldn't it have been easier to just say "hey, I have this sign too!"?
  • Re: Question on value

    I'm in central Ohio. About 40 miles east of Columbus. I really didn't want to get into the specifics of the diagnoses. Just to be clear, I'm not precluded from eating grilled food. The need to get rid of the egg is driven by personal choices and behavior changes related to two fairly serious diagnoses I received in January of 2015. Some people (me) can't successfully do "moderation". I need to get rid of it.

    Scott - thanks much for posting these. Any person offended by the contents of this post did themselves a disservice by not reading the thread title. I applaud the care with which you perform this task. I do have a question. I observed (didn't want to use "saw" twice) you using a saw to cut through the rib cage. I know NOT cutting into the guts is crucial as not to spread bacteria. Have you ever accidentally cut too deep/far? If so, what does one do in that situation? Scrap the whole thing? Grab a new knife and cut away any potential contact meat? Thanks again.
  • Re: Your BEST gift (received) this year..... this will be hard

    Asked the better half for a plate setter for the Large( have had my egg at least 4 years and finally decided to ask for it). No problem ..... right. Then ol Murphy DROPPED by to check on me. Opened the box. examined it and asked the wife to put it in a safe place away from the chaos. She obliged and then it happened. Our four-legged friend jumped in her ever playful mood and knocked the platesetter out of the wife's hands. And if you haven't figured it out yet - broke it in half.
    Where are you located? I replaced mine with cast iron last year and no longer use it. If you're close, it's yours. If you're willing to pay for it to be shipped, it's yours.
  • New slicer in the barn

    I lucked out and picked up an older Globe commercial slicer (model 400) yesterday. A local butcher upgraded to new slicers and sold theirs off. My brother-in-law bought two (he runs a food truck) and decided since the first one he tried ran well, he didn't need the other. I got mine from him for $100 and the only issue I saw was that the bed adjustment (thickness adjustment) would not go thinner than 1/2" thick. I expected maybe a part was broken or something out of adjustment. This morning my wife (she's a trooper) and I spent about 30 minutes dismantling it and reassembling - a set screw was loose which was causing the whole issue. Now it moves up and down flawlessly. I'm so excited because I only really use a slicer for homemade bacon but the one I have been using is woefully undersized and frustrating to use because of it's lack of heft. That will no longer be an issue with this beast. So I am looking for knowledgeable people who have used these types of slicers for any tips or recommendations. Also, this one comes with a sharpener/hone that moves in an out of position but I have no understanding of how it would work. I went through Globe's archives but they only carry manuals back to model 500 and not further into the past. Anyone know how to sharpen using these? Thanks
