Wow, children behaving like children. Color me shocked.

Good BBQ is one of life's greatest treats - but it's a treat. It should be eaten in moderation.

Headso: oh pfft, you'd have to come all the way to upstate ny..


Argh is up that way and has some maple that he'd swap! All I need is time!

James!: Angry Drunk Bureaucrat: James!: This is why we're fat.

Ironically enough, when they have their heart attack, they'll have health care coverage because of Obamacare.

Well, they'll have health coverage because they're in congress. The rest of the country that's defiantly eating itself to death will have health coverage because of Obamacare.


I had health care before Obamacare came along. I still have health care now, but it costs me more.

It's farking expensive.

/please enforce Don't-Swallow-Cyanide Day, Obama

I'm thinking that the Department of Health & Human Services should launch a major "Don't Ram Rusty Nails Up Your Urethra" initiative.

Because insurance companies raising their rates was completely unknown before Fartbongo Kenyanized the healthcares with the socialisms. But, you're right, PPACA was a poor measure, they should have gone for universal Medicare.

FTFA: Those lawmakers had a beef: Republican Sens. John Cornyn of Texas and Charles Grassley of Iowa have celebrated their first "Meat Monday," intent on providing a savory comeuppance to the U.S. Department of Agriculture after it encouraged its employees to boycott meat on Mondays, just to be all nice and eco-conscious.

"Meat Monday"? Can anyone give me an example of a couple of senate Democrats doing something this obviously intentionally douchey, for the pure and simple reason of being contrary? It's an honest question.

Well, we can certainly imagine Democrats doing something like this, which means they probably did it. I imagine both sides are equally bad. So vote Imaginary Republican.

Houston is not known for its BBQ, which is strange for a city of that size.
We've got Lockhart and Luling just down the road, and it is BBQ Heaven.
Furk, I am hungry now, off to procure some comestibles and beer!

Not unknown, but 25% a year jumps were not known by me.

Is there a difference between Kenyanized and socilalized?

Styrofoam and plastic are like, the height of class for BBQ joints going by the photos of the slop posted here. That is when the food isn't just outright dumped on a piece of paper.

Yea, looks great. Maybe just toss it on the floor next time and let the pigs root around for the food?

Just going by the pictures posted here....people posting their favoritests...all on paper and plastic and styrofoam...lame.

But then, I don't live in Texas, so I haven't given up on life yet.

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.


I'm torn. The USDA is there to point out that over-consumption of things is unhealthy. I think the "boycott" (which again isn't, like, legally binding) was over the top.

I think it would have been better for them to say "everything in moderation... try having a few vegitarian-ish meals a few times a week.... here's some recipies... etc."

It isn't a boycott. Lowering your meat consumption by one day isn't going to hurt the industry. However the beef lobby is very powerful and treating meat any less than a religious icon is going to result in ham-fisted asshattery by those reps under their control.

Pun intended.

I could never eat food served on newspaper. The food would get the smell and ink from the newsprint all over it and I'd never be able to eat it. I can't even stand the smell of newsprint as it is. I'd eat that food, just served on something different. Like a plate.

4 hours away. Have some folks coming from Austin on Friday night. Season opens 30 minutes before sunup on Saturday. Hunt, eat, shoot and drink through Sunday and head home Monday. Everyone crashes at mi casa. This year is going to be a good one I think.


I haven't seen dove breasts on a grill since I lived in Texas. Also haven't seen a properly mesquite -smoked brisket. Those little bags of mesquite chips just aren't the same. Damn, you actually made me miss Texas.

Of course. In fact, he's down here right now filming for his new show. Very excited. I know of one place he's filming and when, but I'm not allowed to tell ;)

Hopefully will be able to meet him.

Yeah, not everyone uses newspaper. We'd happily find you something else. The taste isn't affected, but I could see someone grossed out by the smell of newsprint.
