James!: I do Chicken Skin Tacos.

Take some bone-in Chicken breasts with the skin and rub them with granulated garlic, onion powder, adobo, cumin, salt and pepper. 7 minutes a side on the grill then pull them off and let them rest. Take the skin and cut it into little chunks and fry it up in a pan. Pull the meat apart and fill soft tacos with that and some cabbage (I like red) and some tomatillo sauce and a crumbly mexican cheese and top it with the skin.



So noted! Do you use a gas grill or charcoal? I have gone exclusively charcoal much to mamarita's consternation. "Do you realize how much of that shiat you buy a month?!"

I used to eat meat with almost every meal but then I got older and ya gotta cut back, now we do weekday vegetarian. But we find loopholes like making stock out of chicken bones and using left over fat from blts for risotto so we can stretch our meat eating into the week. Because we eat much less meat now all our meat comes from the farmers market. Grass-fed ribeye ftw! and the bacon you get is better and the lard is not all creepy and shiny and gelatinous with a yellowish tinge. It is snow white and hardens up to a brick. Best dietary thing I ever did.

LasersHurt: qorkfiend: LasersHurt: qorkfiend: Crazy as it sounds, I think I might have to side with the GOP on this one. There's absolutely no reason for the USDA to advocate a weekly meat boycott, and I would expect Congressmen and Senators from meat-producing states to call them out on it.

They aren't really "advocating a meat boycott," man. They said "hey wouldn't it be nice if we did a meatless Monday thing?" to which some children responded "YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO" and bought a shiatload of meat.

Very well. Why are they saying that there should be a "Meatless Monday", and why should we expect Congressional representatives from meat-producing states to stay quiet on the matter?

They said they should try it out as a change of pace, and for health reason. It was IN NO WAY MANDATORY, OR A RULE, OR A LAW. It's like your company declaring Friday Casual Day, so you come in wearing 4 suits in protest. If you don't want to, then, you know, don't. But your state doesn't survive solely on Monday meat sales. That's insane and stupid.


No one said their state survives solely on Monday meat sales. However, the proposed "Meatless Monday" directly affects their constituents. Why should we expect them to stay silent on the matter? Do you think Idaho's representatives would remain silent if the USDA recommended a Potatoless Monday?

vpb: Why don't liberals start an anti-arsenic campaign? GOPers would probably eat it out of spite.


They kinda did by trying to get arsenic out of water supplies out west. GOP responded that arsenic is OK in water because it got there naturally.

I eat meat, and I enjoy it. I also do not have any problem with going meatless one day a week. Heck, when my contracts have gaps of more than a month between them, we will go meatless several days a week, just to save money. But I am a competent cook, and I can make a meatless meal that is pretty tasty.

I don't see any problem with the USDA supporting Meatless Monday. It's not like they were enforcing it. They were supporting it. Most Americans need a way to cut their food bills. Many Americans need a way to cut their calories. Going meatless one day out of seven would help with that. Of course, what does the GOP care about helping people who need it?

They should probably stay silent, yeah. Because fark them? I mean I don't agree with the idea that we have to bend over and pussyfoot because someone, somewhere, has constituents that produce that thing. Either you assume that everything is 100% good, and no "things" should ever be talked about, or you open up that someone might say "hey, maybe a little less meat?" or whatever. I personally think the former is stupid, and the latter is "reality." You shouldn't eat meat with every meal, all the time, it's not good for you, and there's nothing wrong with saying so.

I'd be right there with you if they tried to REQUIRE meatless Monday. But they are not.

X-boxershorts: How much did you make from this one post and are they looking for others to do this?


I wish!

I really love to cook outdoors and love to share ideas etc. If I had the time, I'd probably compete but that's work. I prefer to sit around the grill or smoker drink beer and chow down when it's all done. I found some plans for a kickass brick setup but that's where mamarita put her foot down. It was going to cost a couple of thousand...

I do a dove hunt for my friends every labor day weekend and have been wanting to do an old Texas style open spit BBQ but wasn't sure how to set one op on the cheap...until I found this. It will be built before this year's hunt...I might try some old school shoulder clods...Anyone ever done them beefer?
 
2012-07-31 05:10:55 PM
we have so much hickory trees down from clearing some pasture land I have been burning it in my woodstove but also use it for the smoker, smoking some chicken quarters for a few hours with nothing but hickory chunks really infuses that flavor.

You don't have to bend over and pussyfoot. You should, however, not be surprised when Congressional representatives speak up when their constituents will be adversely affected.

LasersHurt: You shouldn't eat meat with every meal, all the time, it's not good for you, and there's nothing wrong with saying so.


Sure. And this means the representatives should stay quiet because why?

Expecting people in Congress to sit down and STFU just because, especially over something that directly affects their constituents, is ridiculous.

If you can tell me in ANY WAY how the constituents will be negatively effected by a small handful of people not eating meat on Monday, you might have a point. And even then, not a good one. Show me ANY type of sales figures that show ANY statistically significant changes in the mean profitability of the Meat Industry, and maybe we can talk.

Best money ever spent.

I've been toying with different woods on different meats. I live in the middle of mesquite country so that's all anyone ever uses out here. I use mesquite for beef only anymore and maybe catfish if I'm grilling it. Pecan or hickory on chicken and fruit woods on swine. Apple is my favorite but I have cherry and apricot (friend cut a tree down) as well. Most grocery stores carry different varieties of wood chunks and I found larger bags at an Academy.

Meat is obviously the ONLY product of agriculture left in a America!

By not eating meat, the USDA was obviously recommending that we buy only imported rice from Japan and Quinoa from South America!

Down With American Agriculture...

Oh wait, I am a vegetarian and I only eat American Produce... hmmm... I think they maybe way off base on this one.

I can confirm this. Our local BBQ joint- which is considered the best in New Orleans- does this. Its also good for sopping up the sauce and bits that get left over. A "good" bread would not do that as well.
