I've read about three of the books. Whew! Talk about some people (children even) getting a raw deal! Will check out the game.  The idea for the beer is appropriate.

The Lannister clan needs something brutal and sneaky. A beer that totally surprises you.

Shouldn't be necessary to filter but more info might help.

liver(s) :D

the rest of the family opted for breaded pork chops.

One of my favorite dishes is fried chicken livers and cream gravy or grilled chicken livers with boiled or scrambled eggs.

They don't know what they are missing.  ;D

I smell sweet baby ray's when I zoom :D
What else is on the ribs?

I hate paying full price for half-assed. That's what usually keeps me from going out.

I rarely eat out since it usually leaves me unhappy and unsatisfied. What I see here is folk who like a variety of good food and are willing to make it themselves. I'll make an exception for Vietnamese. Rare that I go out for that either these days.

And I believe for the most part my own BBQ is better than what is available at the best joints in town.  And I still think S&P or a brine is just as good as any rub.

I love this thread. You guys have helped me improve my Q tremendously. 

Those baby backs are worthless unless you go hot and fast (grilling)- I've never been happy with them in the smoker. I seek out the St Louis cut or cut it out of a slab of ribs myself.

My last pork butt went 17 hours at about 200. Came apart with my fingers. I did a 6.5# super-trimmed brisket on Sunday and overcooked it.  >:( Now it's chopped beef.

The sausage in the corn husk sounds intriguing. Let us know how it turns out.

As long as this is legit I see nothing dishonest with it. A new side-venture for the entrepreneurs that wasn't feasible under their standard by-the-pound grain?

I'm jealous at you guys who think that Malt is overpriced.  MY LHBS sells 50# sacks of Rahr 2-row for almost $70.  Has anyone ordered from this site yet?

Free shipping? The prices look good to me. I b!tched for a while about prices a few years back and became resigned. This might make me LHBS free.

what exactly is RO water?

Reverse osmosis- which removes most of the minerals or salts from the water making it essentially pure.

Spring water from the store is a safe bet.

It is possible to make lasagna without boiling but it takes more sauce and time.

But none of the farts that we produce compare to dog farts. They are almost always silent and always very potent.


Maybe because lots of dogs are vegetarians... ;)

Quarterly is probably more appropriate. Especially in  early spring and late summer. We get our water from the Edwards aquifer and during the summer the level drops considerably.

A baseline sample then the test kits as Mark suggests. Good idea.  :)

Does the neck of the bottle need to be sterilized?

He the guy that answered the wrong way when his wife asked "does this make my butt look big" ??

Haha where he pauses to weigh his options and then says "a little". :D

I like alternate historical fantasy/scifi. Not much into the vampire/lycanthrope thing but the book sounds interesting.
