Serve up a beautiful Filet only to be asked, "do you have any A1?"

Deposit cheap beer in the ice chest and then only drink the good beer.

Invite someone over they ask "what can I bring?" you reply "how about an appetizer?" they show up with Tostitos and store bought salsa.

Right on Carter....how about you bring a nice bottle over and they stash it and serve two buck chuck?

Rib boilers.

Oh man, that is the worst.

Just yesterday I had a guy telling me how good his ribs were boiled then thrown on his gasser with some sauce. He was a customer, so I just listened... and cringed!

That one bothers me too Bear. Someone sent a cookbook for me to look over titled "Cheater BBQ". It was all about making BBQ fast by using a crockpot, Q sauce and liquid smoke. They were convinced it was real BBQ.
I told him it would be like me putting a bit of soy sauce in my pot of pinto beans and calling it chinese food. :)

haha this is horrible, Nothing worse than smokin up some comp style chicken thighs and then have my guests givin me funny looks about the "pink" in the meat.

how about when you have a 10lb butt you've had going all day, pull it out to foil and someone has to say "ummmm, I think it's burnt!"

OK GREAT TOPIC

Only a short cross-fire here to SisInLaw.

Often there is a BUNCH of flavor in that end piece.
So I like to grab it (if possible) along with one out of the middle (rare/med-rare)
That way they both complimentt each other.
Ahhh Burnt ends & bloody center!

Ha ha! I got some strange looks when I did 5 huge shoulders this summer for the Marching Band cookout... a few folks thought they were burnt when I pulled them out of the cooker... once I smooshed the shoulders and started pulling the pork Chris Lilly style, their jaws just dropped. It was priceless!

When I casually tell my wife I'm thinking about doing a full packer next weekend, and she says "won't we have plenty of leftovers from the butt?" that I am cooking tonight. What the hell does that have to do with anything?? I'm already thinking to the weekend after Thanksgiving and having brisket chili!

Obviously she has shown her ability to exhibit poor judgement -- she married me LOL

But keeping track of me is a full time gig for sure.

Patty and I have been married 30 years and when I'm looking for something. Not only will she know what I'm looking for she knows where it is. For our 30 anniversary we went to a Laker's game (her idea) Life's good!

Getting back on the thread. When you grill vegetables that are MAKtastic and people don't try them because they burnt (grill marks)
The best part about Grill Grates are grilling vegetables.

When you are getting ready to prep jalapenos and you forget to put on gloves. Especially when you have dry hands. :eek::eek:

All I can say is if you don't have any dairy products olive oil works.

Kim elaborate on the olive oil.....thanks a bunch.....

FLBentRider
11-16-2010, 10:00 AM
I can chime in here that the reason it works is that capsaicin (heat in peppers) is an oil-soluble substance.

Which is why when you try to brine something and add heat to the brine it (the heat) doesn't make it into the meat, only the surface.

brines only work with water-soluble flavors.

Thanks FLBentRider!


Kim elaborate on the olive oil.....thanks a bunch.....

I get dry hands very easily; hand washing, dry winter air, & redhead skin:p. We were making 100 ABTs for a party. I washed and cored all the jalapenos by hand (no gloves), using my fingers to take out the seeds. I get done and look at my hands. Red, swollen and beginning to burn... BAD! I know that soaking in dairy would work, unfortunately we don't have anything, not even milk. So I hop on the Brethren and beg for help. Phil comes back and says to rub olive oil into my hands. It helped, but I had to keep rubbing every 10 to 15 minutes for about 2 hours.


And a couple hours later you forget, and rub your eyes!

Lol!! I've heard many horror stories.

Big Poppa
