  • Re: Competition BBQ vs. Restaurant BBQ

    I think most restaurants take a fairly safe route, so no big seasoning in rub or sauce.  I bet if you don't have a bland palate you probably prefer your own cooking.

  • Re: OT: The new "mancave"

    I think it looks like a great room but is it really a man cave if the swmbo designed it.  I kind of like the old furniture in the garage where you can sit on the furniture without getting heck for having oil, grass or whatever on your clothes.  Beer fridge and a dart board and you are getting fancy.  Like I said looks like a great room and your wife has good taste but not a man cave if you have to act all civilized to use it.

  • Re: Fast foods that should be avoided......

    I prefer good hand washing practices to gloves, often the food service workers think that the gloves are for the protection of their hands not the food.  This results in them not changing there gloves after doing things that will result in cross contamination.

    P.S. I try to avoid fast food chains for anything other than coffee, sometimes when travelling it is hard to do.
  • Re: Cooking Good Food

    I think this is one case where the tool does make you a better cook.  I remember my first meal cooked on the egg was ribs and they where the best I had ever made.  Good results encourage you to learn more which results in even better results and once you set the bar at a certain level you need to work to meet expectations which seem to always increase.

    There haven't been many failures in the last 3 years.  Most memorable failure was an indirect cook of chicken legs where I forgot to put the platesetter in, the results where charcoal.

    I guess I'm an old southern guy but animals were made to eat. At what point does cruelty come in. Read about foie gras last night and the outraged people.
    I have no qualms about eating animals but I do feel that animals should have as humane a life as possible.  I won't buy Kosher or Halal meats, buy free range eggs and try to support businesses that feel the same way.  It's not a religion for me but I do feel better about consuming ethical food.
