I'm going to need more tips on this smoker,it has finally arrived and I'm having troubles getting it past 150 to smoke some ABTs. Seems like it would take hours to reach 225 ? I would be interested in seeing if the indicated temperature is anywhere close to the actual temperature. I have a Masterbu...

Introducing a Man Who Needs No Introduction

Well, ya see, it`s like this- - he's been around a long time already. (See those little "age" and "joined" thingies on th...

Is there a ban on eating cow brain and nerve tissue in Europe, due to the presence of Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy ("Mad Cow Disease")? There are still restrictions in place regarding blood donors who lived for more than 3 months in the UK, and more than five years in various countries including...

I mixed up the brine, then chilled it in the freezer. I used multiple plastic containers so it would all fit, and "accidentally" had to remove a package of my Krainerwurst, thaw it, heat it, and eat it in order to make room. (Such are the sacrifices that we face...) This way the composition is corre...

If you hate math, skip to the end, where you will be reassured that although it dilutes things a bit, it's not a whole lot. For those interested in the math, grab...

UhOh! It's thought that boar are more susceptible to radiation contamination because their diet consists of mushrooms and truffles that are buried in the ground and hold radiation longer than other vegetation. Better rethink your mushroom gathering hobby, eh? ...especially those which glow after dar...

...interesting thought, Ross. They say, though, that wheat flour was not commonly used in Mexican tortillas until the Tex-Mex craze took off in the 60's. Do you think a crepe could be made with 100% corn meal? (...perhaps your next challenge?) My friends in Queretaro, where Emperor Maximillian was s...
