  • Re: Any love for the medium?

    RRP said:
    My medium is my baking egg and it has never had either wood nor meat cooked in it. Sometimes I refer to it as my virgin egg for obvious reasons. ;) BTW something that is amazing is it is now 16 years old, still has the original old style felt gasket and the color inside is a light tan - not even honey colored! Guess that says something about what meat and wood does to the inside of an egg!
    So what do you use for a heat source if you aren't using wood?
    Lump charcoal, but not just any...Ozark Oak which I hoarded for sake of its seemingly neutral or very little smokiness. By saying "wood" I meant no wood chunks nor wood chips so once any smoke clears from the charcoal there is little if any smoke taste. 
  • looking for dill pickle recommendations

    This may sound like a strange request, but I just can't seem to find a decent brand of dill pickles for hamburgers. To me most hamburgers purchased at restaurants have pickles which are far superior to those major brands available at the supermarkets. When I find ones I like I ask the manager to find out the brand and it's always some weird name like Acme Dill Pickles or such which come in 5 gallon jars purchased at wholesale food distributors. Any recommendations would be appreciated.
  • ooops - gotta stay ahead of Spring to make some $$$

    After seeing the post by @Sardonicus I figured I better get hustling if I wanted to sell some of my Winter "stuff" before it gets another year older.

  • Re: Sams VS Costco


    Costco. Better quality of merchandise and much better customer service. Sam's does offer more brand names, though. Locally, people fired from Costco get jobs at Sam's, which is pretty funny.
    As a small business person, I'm not a fan of Walmart. I live in the Boone docks though and we have limited choices or none at all. Thanks for info. 
    Pete,
    When I first met you last Summer didn't you tell me some meat jobber in a truck came thru Sterling on a weekly basis? At least then I thought you were quite satisfied with the quality - did that change?

    As for your question - we have been with SAMS for years out of convenience as COSTCO is much further and a huge number of traffic lights to sit thru to get there. I can go to SAMS on rural roads and only have 2 lights to slow me down. OTOH we buy very little meat there as we have other retail sources in Peoria. I know someday we will join COSTCO as everyone says they are so far superior - just not now.
  • Re: Time of the year. Beans or no beans in chilli??
