  • Jamie - you are certainly welcome! Since the oil content seems to always rise to the top I always stir it well in the jar. As for crackers I like plain "Original" Club crackers since they are bland enough so the taste of LaBoma isn't altered.
  • Welcome aboard! Can you take a recommendation or two without being pissed? The XL is one heavy egg and it appears the boards it will be resting on are merely 3/4" and they appear to be pine. They will warp from all of that weight so bracing before p…

  • My only question is are you on a septic system? If so, I sure would not, but if so then forget my question!!!
  • Theophan said: This isn't what most people mean by "crab salad," so it's probably not what you want, but for what it's worth, it's a crab salad, and it's cold, and my wife and I love it.  It's an old recipe from Gourmet magazine, a classic that…
  • Hotch said: How about one of these? Man-o-man I would have bought one of those in a heartbeat 30 years ago! Back then I bought 3 or 4 axes, 2 mauls, a couple splitting wedges and even an antique froe. Then I got smart - sold or gave …
  • thetrim said: Even you just can’t rename the ABT.    I never said it was my recipe.

  • Yes that works fine. I always warn people not to even touch that cap with bare fingers since even at low egging temperatures it is blistering HOT!
  • milesvdustin said: Found a harps only 2.5 hrs away in paragould. Wonder how many bags they have. I wouldn't want to do the drive for less than 15 or 20 bags  I had mentioned earlier that I had purchased OO a few years back in Mexico, MO.…
  • Photo Egg said: Darian, ol pal. That beer frig will not draw off the several cups of water from the cells in the meat. That moisture can and will cause issues with your results.
  • milesvdustin said: Anyone in IL or near southern il wanna go in on some? Seriously contemplating going to get some of this. Just to say I've tried it.  Years ago there was an IGA grocery store in Mexico, MO that carried OO. I made 3 or 4…
  • Our Sam's just finally started offering Prime 3 years after Costco came into our marketplace. OTOH our Sam's has always carried those tenderloin packages. Though they were not pricey tenderloin filets I learned how to cut off the "silver membrane" w…

  • Begger said: Thinner sliced cooks somewhat faster.     I make Kosher Hot Dogs....Bacon Wrapped and incinerate them on the Egg. Kosher hot dogs wrapped in bacon? Excuse me, but what am I missing here? 
  • Now - if you want to get real "artsy-fartsy" then thick bacon works best...
  • I've read all the posts in this thread, but the one that really counts here are the ones from "bgebrent". I'm a prostate cancer survivor so I know first hand (or digital ha ha ha) that such tests while unpleasant are important if you care about you…
  • Looks good from here! Thanks for the reminder that I need to order more forbidden rice. During Lent I like to up my game with my fish dishes using forbidden rice. Its black color adds to the presentation.
  • Interesting!  As a 74 year old son of a true blacksmith I always pick up on posts like yours! My late Father had his bs shop in IA. And yes he was also a farrier near the Amish community there.  I'm assuming that you - like me - watch the "Forged …
  • 1911Man said: @RRP I'll look to get one of those plastic bits next time I go to a hardware store. I was using my large ShopVac when I cleaned it last time so it was all sucked away. To shape the tool, I'll probably just use the belt grinder …
  • 1911Man asked: BTW, what do you guys use to clean off the 'scale' from inside the lid? I've been using a gloved hand, but I'd like to do a better job of it. Without damaging the ceramic in any way. This is my cheap solution. I paid …
  • At $.88 a pound that's nearly stealing it!

  • thetrim said: I still Ron runs lines like a Fahkin bossssss! huh?
  • bgebrent said: Really? YES - you don't know my b-i-l!!! He's tighter than bark on a tree! In fact it would not surprise me if he takes this claim clear to the top heap of FS ownership!
  • thetrim said: I bet Ron owns a flip phone.   Yes, two of them to be exact! Both are in our two regular drivers in case of calling out for some road emergency.
  • OK OK OK - no phone so no light advice needed!  Thanks for the responses anyway! Topic closed!!!
