  • Re: OT - Online Photo Printers

    Somebody recommended Shutterfly, but when I read the fine print it was clear that they could use or distribute your photos however they wanted….and that you, and everyone in the photos has agreed to a release of their likeness!!

    Pretty scary stuff….so whoever you use, read the fine print!
    Good luck!
  • Re: Buying chicken wings

    Just a quick tidbit. Wings are the best part of the chicken. Big wings are the best. Don't waste your time with small wings. A purveyor may call them "jumbos"…but you know when you see them. Up here in the DC area (MD, VA) Giant food has monster wings. The Family Pack has 20-24. Get that if you have a Giant Food….otherwise, look for biguns. 

    Happy winging!

  • Re: Resting Meat - A Busted Myth!?!?!

    I do love when myths are busted. Not only do we learn something new,, but now you don't have to believe anyone who says that again!

    But…..Resting could actually be good for other reasons. With a large roast/turkey, etc, it is nice to pull it off the cooker shy of the target temperature. It will finish cooking as it rests, and the temps will equalize between the outer and inner parts.

    Note: I have not done any exhaustive lab testing on this :)

  • Re: Thanks @SGH - my new pig sticker is COOL!!!

    The SImitar is my favorite brisket trimming knife. I still remember the first day I got it….literally all three of us who used the knife cut ourselves. Great knife!!

    Cheers, and safe trimmin.
  • Re: Feeding 30 people

    Howdy! I have found that a 15 pound packer will serve 20-25 people, assuming that there are other dishes. I'd probably do 1 big brisket and 2 pork butts if you have ample sides. 

    Cheers, and happy cookin.
