But is the Cheeto cooked? (beef ribs)

Options
Not sure I'd ever think of trying this, but I suppose this is why EweTube exists:

The real question I have is, when you do this, are the cheetos actually cooked?   What do you guys think?  Is the cheeto cooked?

Happy Friday.

    Shoulda used Flaming Hot CHEETOS.  I am quite sure I would have never thought of this. 
    However, the time is right for CHEETO experimentation.  Just ask Alvin Bragg.

    If the past 7 years have taught me anything, it is that just when the dorito liking crowd thinks the cheeto is done, it always comes out not cooked.

    Because of the dorito tears that are shed because the cheeto isn't done, cheeto lovers don't have to add salt to their ribs.  It is almost as if cheetos live rent free in the minds of dorito lovers.  You would think dorito lovers would just forget about cheeto since cheetos live for attention.

    From my seat, the secret-recipe cheeto drama was the best example of what I am talking about when it turned out the doritos were doing the same thing.  Dorito lovers everywhere thought the cheeto was finally done, but it turned out since the doritos were grilling with the same lump, the cheeto wasn't done. Neither was the dorito, even though they were grilling in their garage next to their Corvette. That was classic and proved to me that both cheetos and doritos are awful.  Now, no one talks about secret-recipe cheetos or doritos.  I wonder why.

    I am, btw, agnostic to cheetos or doritos.  I feel cheeto or dorito, there should be something better.  

    That's actually pretty funny.....

    This is probably the most important thing we can learn from cooking cheetos and doritos.  A good store would have more chip options.  The fact that the best a 2-chip store can do is to come up with cheetos and doritos is proof of failure of the 2 chip store system.

    Maybe the problem is the store….only shelves for two brands of flakey corn snacks.  In other words, a crappy and limited selection.

    Perhaps we need more of a parliamentary shelving system where the group of chips could get together like chip caucuses and decide on a leader out of the many flavors.

    Indeed. 

    I lose my appetite just thinking about Cheeto. 

    But hey, it's working.  220 a couple years ago down to 165 lbs, stable, eat whatever I want.

    The nice thing about the United Store of Aliment is that if you don't like it, you can shop in another store, like Canada.  No one ever does because they always know even though we only have cheetos and doritos, this store is the best store in the world.

    My high school buddy is a cook at the state pen in Sioux Falls, and they make cheeto-crusted chicken often, I'm told.

    No doubt true, but I find that it is also a problem for us as a society that folks insist upon the view that cheetos aren’t any different from doritos.  They’ll also insist that fresh doritos aren’t any different from old, stale ones, or that sometimes they’re even worse, and then don’t even get me started on the folks who think Cool Ranch doritos are poison.  Yes, it’s all junk food, but while the decision to eat one or the other may not be life or death to you, it can be for some.

    Cheetos (snack food) Doritos and any jalapeno or habanero flavoured (nod) fine dining appetizer does not fall into the classification of junk food.  You just have to nail the presentation. 
    Food for Friday night. 
    BTW- Snyder's pretzel bites (your favourite flavour (double nod) are also exempt!
    Edit for Snyder's.

    I am a fan of their honey mustard and onion pretzel bites.  Amazing.

    @JohnInCarolina - you nailed the Snyder's flavour (nod) here as well.  I have tried the others but they hit that one out of the park.  (Nod to baseball season day two.)

    Good to hear that the Grand Jury voted for this Cheeto. We’d all hoped this day would come. So deserving. 

    This Cheeto is going to be so sick of winning as it meets more jury votes in the future.

    Quite a controversial corn snack, but as long as it’s ground up and plastered on some mustard coated butt (or rubs), it’s good for the Maillard flavors and salty as hell.

    She probably just legit forgot about that part.  Never has a defendants lawyer ever said “I will prove my client’s innocence against this evidence in court!”

    She should lose her law license I guess.

    Someone told me a good story about Bugles, wish I remembered it….

    At what point does Pelosi just go away?    

    Clintons paid $850k to make a gal go away, Trump $130k.  NDA $, hush $, whatever.   You can’t pay $130k to a pornstar to influence an election-makes zero sense.   

    I heard someone recently say, and I fully agree, America is perfect, it’s the people that are the problem.  Yep, I agree
