  • Best lump,lighter fluid, and grill combo EVER!!!!!

    i had no idea what I was missing out on. This lump was amazing- and don't even get me started on the grill. The right touch of lighter fluid had this thing going in no time! If you guys ever get a chance to use this Lump/Grill/Fluid Combo I think you will swear off your Fancy Lump/Weed Burner/BGE obsession on the first try. 

    First, get some of this:

    Then, get some run-of-the-mill Tuscan veal raised a mile away from a guy who lives above his shop who hacks it with a giant curved cleaver right before he goes up for lunch and siesta. Total Crap ingredients but the lump made that magic happen!

    Then, grab some chicken (I think) wrapped in Prosciutto; stuffed with eggplant (I think) and cheese (I sincerely hope) from the same guy. These would have been a total waste had we not found this magic lump and $99euro grill. 

    Throw a little bagged pasta and some sort of stupid local cheese and "estate" (where we are cooking all this and sleeping) produced olive oil in a mix for what they like to call "Cacio e Pepe" and you have some sort  of peasant dish that is filling and will save you money (for more magic lump!).

    A few Greens from the garden. potatoes roasted on the same lump and all topped off with (lots of) $8Euro a bottle estate produced  Montepulciano and you can really see where the lump and grill shine. You could barely taste the lighter fluid I used in the chimney to light the empty wax coated bag the lump came in. Magnifico!

    Anyway- Tuscany is hot in the summer, full of bugs, people drink wine then sleep from 1-4pm every day, but they have AMAZING lump (and wine). We are suffering though the best we can

    Speaking of the OP, not much interaction with him here.  
    It makes one stop and ponder that maybe he simply suffers from anal retentiveness. Or possible a prolapse. We may never know brother John. We are left only to wonder and contemplate the vast and endless possibilities.  
    I just peed myself a little
