  • Re: OT photo software

    What are you wanting to do with your photos? Elements is a great application if you are wanting to manipulate your photos, many of the features in prior versions of Photoshop have been incorporated into Elements. Lightroom will still give lots of control over your photos as well, many photographers use this as their primary photo application as it helps to manage your expanding gallery. 

    Personally I use Aperture, much like Lightroom, to manager my photo library and go into Photoshop less and less. It provides the main tools that I use to quickly enhance my photos. As a recomendation both of the apps you are looking at have free trials so that you can try each out for 30 days. Load them up and see what is going to work best for you and your personal photography style and needs. 

    Good luck in your decision.
  • Re: Boneless pork shoulder - never again


    I am not sure that the issue was a boneless shoulder but that it was netted. In my experience this is done to hold several smaller pieces of meat together for sale. As this may not have been a whole cut there may not have been the fat content that you get with your typical butts and lead to the results of a drier than normal finished product. 

    Personally I get my butts from Sam's club and it is tossing the dice as to whether they have bone in or boneless butts that day. The have always come out delicious and juicy.

  • Re: My first TURBO Butts

    Well after a long rest FTC using Omaha Steak cooler, worked really well, steaming hot coming out of the foil. The bark was very soft and the pork pulled the best I have ever done, I poured the juice that was in the foil in with the meat. Lots of flavor and a good amount of smokiness.

    Here is a finished plated photo with the sandwich, some roasted potatoes, green beans, corn, and a cucumber/tomato salad.

    I will definitely be doing TURBO butts in the future as I was able to start it in the morning, FTC, and still have piping hot for dinner.
  • Re: Two Questions (and one provisional) on Stuffed Jalapenos

    If you do a search for ABT (Atomic Buffalo Turds) you will get lots of ideas. Some people make boats by slicing the pepper in half and some leave them whole. The great thing is that I have never made them wrong.
