My question, is there a way to (a) restore some of the old...

    Change of mind

    I have noticed that sometimes I decide to post, but change my mind, or in the last instance, I inserted the wrong picture in my post. Although I did not actually "post reply", there seems to be no way to cancel or even delete the picture. I can sign off, and the potential post is still on my...

    Any one tried it? I just recently heard about it and bought some. Tried it on some smoked baby backs, and the flavor is great! It is salt, of course, and a little goes a long ways, but I plan on experimenting with it, maybe get a salt grinder so I can use it the you would use regular...

    Thermapen...anyone have one?

    I am considering getting a Thermapen. If they are advertised, they would be worth the rather high price. I have a cheapie now, but it is so slow it's almost useless. Anyone have one and like it?

    This is an old family recipe, and it is a tradition at Christmas and Thanksgiving. It is relatively unknown, in fact, I have never known anyone else to use it, at least until they got if from us. These things are so good, I know of two instances where individuals who did not like green beans...
