    I want to buy a new baseball glove and I don't know why. I was in a sporting goods store and came across a Rawlings Heritage Pro ourfielder's glove. Looked great, smelled great. Such beautiful design and craftsmanship. Made me want to buy one and a baseball...and do what?

    Most agree that removing the membrane makes for a better eating rib, but it's labor-intensive, so butchers will sometimes score the membrane as an in-between approach that hopes to achieve the same effect. I don't think it does.

    It just makes MORE work for the smoker who doesn't want the membrane on at all. All them little pieces. Pain in the posterior to get them outtathere.

    I have never seen them do that. The ones I deal with usually remove it as soon as it's purchased. Maybe it keeps the meat fresher until then I don't know

    Where do I send my entry for the world's tiniest tomato contest?
    That's a USA dime.

    I'll see your tiny tomato and raise you one TEENY peruvian white habanero (heat level ~ 300,000 SHU)


    I ate one of these puppies. Wonderful fruity flavour, got the heat about 30 seconds later and built for about 15 minute. Had some garlic dip (for chips) that helped cool it down.

    Took about another 15 minutes for that cool down. But boy, the pepper burps after that lasted about an hour. Kinda weird but oh so good

    You don't.

    Wonder if ChuckO is ever coming back. He's taken extended leaves of absence before, but this one seems rather long.

    I don't think it's burping you need to worry about. Eat those hotties and the problems show up much further south
