  • The sheet pans in the top photo were to catch the grease that was just pouring out past the door, even while closed. They would then get dumped into the 30 gallon barrel mentioned earlier. 
  • Thanks all.  Had a team of 10 volunteers to trim, rub, and wrap on Tuesday.  Brisket was minimally trimmed to 1/4” on the flat and a little of the hard fat between the point and flat. One guy wouldn’t listen and was hacking out all of the hard fat. …

  • Coat it with olive oil so it will slide in to the trash bin easier.  Just kidding, I’ve never cooked or eaten goose so I’m along for the ride to learn something.

  • SkySaw said: Surprised that there is not more mention of American made shoes here. I have a pair of Allen Edmonds shoes that are 30 years old, and look better than when I bought them. A high quality pair of shoes can have the soles and heels re…

  • Thanks all. 
  • So our new granddaughter Evie had to spend a couple days in the NICU to help her lungs mature (she was 3 weeks early).   She is now doing great and moving to moms room this afternoon. 
  • I also missed out on the paella.

  • I picked up two bottles of McKenna at the local military base today for $21/per. Looking forward to trying it.

  • When I am doing catering for large groups I buy them at RD, problem is that sometimes they are out of bone-in and I have to buy boneless. For smaller cooks I buy them at the local military base, typically they are cheaper. 
  • I’m not, but I suffer from anal glaucoma quite often (can’t see my ass going to work that day). 
  • Damn, somehow I missed out on the schweddy balls, pecan pie, and paella. Oh well, maybe next time. 
  • If you want a bomb proof generator, look for a MEP-802A on eBay, Craigslist, etc. This is a military surplus 2-cylinder Onan diesel with a nameplate of 5 KW, but the military derates them, it is typically closer to 6500 W or so. 100% duty cycle, mea…
