Re: Stay Warm Out There

Temps are certainly on the rise here. We are currently sitting at 1 degree and snowing. Yesterday was one to remember, I woke up to my gauge reading -58. It measures wind chill and gives a more accurate how it feels temp, not simply air temp. I was very glad that the Postal Service cancelled delive...

Re: Stay Warm Out There

We got down to -2 this morning. Not bad considering what Chicago was last night. We have two sources of heat and running water, every thing is good.

Re: Bar-B-Que Bowl

Seafood, in Florida waters, is pretty highly regulated. You must have the proper licenses, bring fish in that fit the slot (size) limits and catch season...and the wholesale seafood houses that buy from fishers must present trip tickets..species, number, total weight and date bought. Gill nets and ...

Re: Bar-B-Que Bowl

Yep...my wife and I are with you on "fresh"....a lifetime on the gulf coast has taught my tastebuds...I can immediately tell, on first bite, a fresh from the gulf shrimp. Grouper, if fresh frozen correctly, is more difficult to detect. But...now days, so much advertised as "fresh&quo...

Re: Sports Betting

We all know that betting plays a part in sports. I'm not sure the big sports books run the sports, but they basically run the guys how bet, and the guys who bet run the ratings. That is the reason anyone other than a fan of a school or a few junkies like us watch the games is if they have a stake in...

Re: Bar-B-Que Bowl

It can work that way. Actually in lots of places king crab comes precut to make it easier. A guy I know that serves the Vegas market has mad a living by doing that very thing. When it comes to the smaller snow crab and such, there is a trick to it. If you know the trick you can get the meat out fair...

Re: Bar-B-Que Bowl

I like Bar-B-Que. Not much I don't. Here's my 'rub.' In the West, Bar-B-Que is always advertised 'Southern" or "Texas Style." There is not one on every corner and it is not a regional pastime. Even in the stores, the sauces are always identified with the part of the country that didn...

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


There isn't much in the way of BBQ that I won't eat. I have tried it from every region and find that I like it all.

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

Seafood is the worst to misrepresent. There are so few guidelines that misrepresenting species is fairly common. There is a place close to me selling Pollock and calling it walleye. They sell it for $12.95 all you can eat walleye dinner. Walleye retails for 12-15 dollars a pound, not really a buffet...

Spence...our better restaurant here in rural western North Carolina serves Meats by Linz beef (dry aged) out of Chicago....pretty good tasting steaks for being 100 miles from a city and in a town of 427.... https://www.google.com/search?rlz=1CASHAN_enUS809&q=the+copper+door+hayesville+north+car...
