Re: Bar-B-Que Bowl

Not really a beer guy...I like a good wine or a good bourbon. We do go out to local breweries and I'll drink a Possum Drop Porter or good browmn ale...but I'd rather have a glass of wine or a bourbon.

Re: Bar-B-Que Bowl

I watch my wife and friends with their crab legs at one of our restaurants on King crab night. I have to avert my eyes and they do chuckle at my wry comments. But an atavastic scene always comes to my mind...the flickering candle emulating a small fire, the enthusiastic cracking of legs...I see grun...

Re: Bar-B-Que Bowl

I love the idea of "pitting" schools from the different barbecue regions against each other in a "Barbecue Bowl".

Pun intended...love me some pit Bar-B-Que.

Re: Transfers-Anyone Know How Many Players.....

Off Topic...but I was down on the coast last week...our friends gulf front house was badly damaged and we were assisting them with quotes, workers, etc. Three nights in a hotel in Apalachicola and commuting in for the day. We went to a restaurant, one of the few operating, in Port St. Joe and had a ...

Re: Transfers-Anyone Know How Many Players.....

I like Snapper, grouper, drum, scamp.......scamp is fairly rare commercially but is the best of the grouper clan, IMHO.

Re: Transfers-Anyone Know How Many Players.....

I have asked for the chef to come out...as well as the manager. When a menu advertises a grouper filet (and charges a grouper price), I take umbrance at being swindled by a Swai filet...or, once, even a Tilapia. When the chef had the nerve to tell me he was serving "Chinese grouper"...I sa...

Chef Dennis is pretty straight forward....We once ordered our Rib Eyes and the server came back and told us that there was only one left...I graciously said that my wife would take it...I ordered a filet (not my favorite cut)...

Re: Transfers-Anyone Know How Many Players.....

I can get a great prime rib eye for two for $23 bucks....

Which, evidently is one half of the pro rated charge if a doctor gets off of the elevator on your floor.
