    Recrisping a turkey?

    As of right now, my plan for Thursday is to either rotisserie the turkey or cook it beer can style. This will take place here and then the turkey will have to be transported 20 minutes to the dinner site. I'm thinking of putting it in a dish and then sealing it in with foil; this will keep it...

    Smaller turkeys at Festival Foods (WI)

    Today I found a Plainville Farms 8-1/4 lb. turkey in Festival Foods in Ft. Atkinson, WI. It wasn't cheap ($4-something/lb) but since a standard 12+ bird is more than I need, it's worth it.

    Looks like steroids and other PEDs possibly found their way into the NFL 60 years ago:

    Jim, you've been a great contributor here for a long time, but I simply cannot let this go unnoticed and therefore must reply: Did you mean to post this to your soccer moms group? ;)

    D*mn rodents!

    I lost my oldest vintage Lawn-Boy mower today when a mouse nest built up inside the top of the engine compartment caused it to overheat and seize. Fortunately it's not totally locked up but compression's gone, so hopefully the powerhead and piston are OK and I can fix it with a re-ring. This...

    Football is back baby!

    Someday, perhaps, NFL football will once again be played in Chicago. Perhaps.

    Just nature photos

    When I was growing up there were orbs everywhere in the grassfields behind the house.

    Football is back baby!

    50+ years backing the guys with the "C" on their hats and clad in navy blue and orange. 1 year turned out OK, I guess.

    Does anyone remember this?

    Good timing! I have 4 thighs to grill tomorrow and I was originally planning on Cornell Chicken, but I just might give this a try instead.

    1st Beef Ribs

    The membrane of beef ribs is usually pretty tough and thicker/more dense than that of pork ribs. The next time you cook up a batch, consider removing it - I think you might like the results.

    Indy restaurant recommendations?

    I do not have fond childhood memories of liver so I haven't had it in probably close to 50 years, but if someone at Shapiro's offers me a free taste I won't turn it down! FWIW, I'm planning on having fried chicken, chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes and gravy, and green beans at Gray's...

    What is your opinion?

    My response to that would be, "Good! That means more shrimp for ME!!";)

    1st Beef Ribs

    Definitely not bad for a first effort. Did you skin them? Good luck finding meatier ones; they seem to be pretty scarce sometimes. If there's a sale on rib roasts you might want to buy one and cut your own ribs to get the thickness you want. Sometimes I'll direct-grill beef ribs to...
