  • Re: Boneless skinless chicken breast.

    I think skinless, boneless = no flavour.  We do chicken quite often and I have never liked eating the skin but I think the fat under the skin adds flavour to the meat same goes for the bone.  I takes a little longer to cook but worth the extra time.

    Just my dumb opinion

  • Re: Big Green Eggers ... A Different Breed.

    I believe the egg requires a bigger financial commitment than most folks are willing to make to grill, which is what most people do on a propane bbq, so naturally you are more of an enthusiast.  
    I came to the egg from an offset smoker and really loved being able to do a 18 hour smoke with one load of charcoal after years of having to check every half hour to 40 minutes on the smoker.  I think it is one of the best treats I have given myself.

  • Re: Chicken not done at 170 degree

    I agree chicken legs can be technically over cooked but still moist and delicious.  Generally cook everything to temperature but chicken legs go on aroun 300 -325º F for two hours indirect and always come out pretty much perfect.

  • Re: Going Dark on Social Media

    Side note. Whether people want to believe it or not prospective employers often check these things before hiring and can be used for termination. It is a 100% fact. It's easy to hide behind a computer etc and spout crap but, there are sometimes real consequences that follow as a direct result.
    I think like any social interaction you have filter out the weird thoughts that pop into your head which I think a lot of folks fail at on line and that is what causes them problems.  If you are walking down the street you would never yell out look at her fat ass but lots of folks seem to do it online.
