  • I use it and Dizzy Pig for about 99.9% of my cooking. I also own (and proudly wear) two Bayou Barq T-shirts. Chris' Dizzy Pig T-shirts are really nice as well but I'm yet to get one of those.
  • I really like the Raging River and the Cow Lick. It will definitely complement your rub cabinet along with the Bayou Barq.
  • Jack - We had a huge discussion on this topic about four to five years ago. Most people noticed anywhere from 15-30 degrees difference depending on several factors. It also explains why when people try to hold their dome at 220, they have trouble …
  • Welcome - but what gives! - delivered today but you're waiting until the weekend? You've got Wednesday and Thursday at least before the weekend. A simple pork tenderloin can provide dinner TONIGHT!
  • I understand this is really good. I went there last week but did not have teh mac n cheese: Community Q’s Three Cheese Mac and Cheese Hands on: 15 minutes Total time: 1 hour Serves: 4 Chef-owner David Roberts, formerly of Sam & Dave’s in …
  • I just have to ask. You can cook three hamburgers on a mini. How many can you cook on a diamond?
  • It's been a while since I have been there but I always liked Galatoire's. They take no reservations but it's an "equal opportunity" line outside. Also, I liked Felix's just as much as Acme.
  • Pete may be different and he may be dramatic, but I really don't believe for one second that he is a fraud. Having joined the ranks of the unemployed (or more accurately - pre-retired)briefly last year, I can tell you that it afffects you. Differen…
  • For 6 (4 XL and 2 L or 6 XL) you will need to fold the middle seat down and leave the rear seat at home. Be sure to bring some extra blankets or padding to just stuff between and around. The nests should break down easily to fit in and around the …
  • You've gotten some good advice but all in all, I don't think you did anything wrong. I'll summarize what the others have said: 1. Check your theromometer to make sure it's close to accurate. I cooked a butt one time that did not seem to cook fast…
  • You might want to buy some ceramic sleeve and put the cable through this. You can buy it by the foot and it will help to dissipate the heat.
  • I think the advantage of that color is that if a baby were to poop on it, you'd never be able to tell it. I would call it 'baby poop camouflage green'. On the other hand, you'd probably hav eno problem finding it in a crowded parking lot.
  • I demand a recount. I think I saw a hanging chad in there.
  • OK, I'll disagree with your disagreement. We as parents want our kids to have things we did not. Our parents wanted us to have things they did not. As we have done that we have lost sight of one thing - when we try too hard to keep our kids from …
  • John at BGE asked me to try one out when I was in the store one day. You don't think they just bring these things out without field testing do you?
  • I've been using one in a large for about two years now and my box has not cracked. The one in my medium is doing well after 6 months or so.
  • Chubster - that really looks good. Where you been?
  • That's a nice looking crust, but uh... isn't it supposed to be in a pan or on a counter or somewhere other than hanging in your ceiling?
  • My mom asked exactly that same question before Christmas. I found a coupon that got me a FoodSaver handheld unit for $3.99(with free shipping) so I bought both of us one of those along with some more FS bags. That is the second great Reynolds prod…
  • That looks like a very decent price.'re not officially an EGGhead until: 1. You've burned all the hair off at least one arm via a flashback. 2. You've burned up your gasket. 3. You realize that you can cook quite well with a cracked fi…
  • You must be in marketing. :laugh:
  • I would suggest you might start by finding a team that you could work with for one or two competitions. After you've done it for a time or two, you will know more about what it takes and whether you really want to invest the time and money to compe…
  • A couple of years back, I thought we had Bobby all ready to do a throw down with some of our more "mature" cooks. We couldn't get the timing down - he was going to be in Atlanta only for one day - but it would have been fun. I used to really make …
  • Actually it is. If you can make sure you get enough of the fat to render off without making it dry, it is right tasty.

  • I've always like this recipe: Pluck and clean the goose. Place it on a maple board. Using poultry shears, cut the bird down the backbone. Push the bird - breast side up- until it is as flat as possible. Using a mallet, pound the bird until it i…

  • Bradshaw or Bente?
  • I don't know about that. I looked it up and I'm not sure this should be discussed in the presence of small children (or those of us with cholesterol concerns).
  • I don't know much about those things but: 1. That looks like an awesome machine 2. Why does it look like it's throwing the snow right back into its path?
