Night Night Cream Puff: emarche: xtalman: emarche: NJ is  NOTCapicola, you farkin tards. NJ is - and will always be -  TAYLOR HAM.

Pork Roll for us from the northern part of the state.  But this is the truth.

/Now I needs some pork roll.
//Living in OK and hate chicken fried steak

I grew up in North Jersey, never once heard it called Pork Roll - it's always been Taylor Ham - even though that's what the Taylor company calls it. Either way, if it isn't Taylor...it doesn't count. There  isa difference.

GF from North Jersey. It's called Taylor ham at every deli I've ever been to with her...and it's delicious (family from the Tom's River area call it pork roll). Found it in my local supermarket as well so we don't have to go back the NJ to get it if we have a craving. Dammit. Now I want Taylor ham, egg, and cheese...


Okay, I grew up in north central jersey, Morristown area, most of my family is in central Jersey and we called it Pork Roll, either way it is yummy and as was posted up above, Taylor FTW, nothing else compares.

Glad to see this was covered. The judges would also accept pork roll. Scrapple is from Delaware? I always thought that was an Amish thing. Also, if you only know PA for cheesesteaks, you're missing out. Hot roast pork on a long roll with provolone and broccoli rabe...hey, look, it's lunch time!

Judd mat Gaardebounen, the national dish of Luxembourg, is a plate of broad beans topped with sliced smoked pork collar. Pork collar is a cut near the shoulder that's rarely used in the States, so I am more than happy to yield it to Luxembourg. Gudden appetit!

CreepyBasementGuy: Brisket is one step below eating dog meat.


It can be.  Some of the most flavorful meats are the toughest.  Bad brisket is rubbery and inedible.  But good brisket, particularly off the back end, is divine.  If you ever get the chance to go to SNows, Smitty's, Franklin's, or Pecan Lodge, you will understand how wrong you were.  A well smoked piece of brisket with a good bark, nice marbling, and cooked to perfection is very, very good.

Now I might have to cook a brisket this weekend,

All are great Omaha steak joints. If you ever visit, go to one. In fact, go to them all. Cram yourself with meat.

/Do NOT go to Omaha Prime though. Trust me. You're probably eating prime rib that was reheated or a steak that sat on their display plate all day yesterday.

THE SINGULARITY

The Singularity has already happened.

We missed it.

We will die, you and I, in the world we were born into; not so my mother, your grandmother, our great uncle Jim. They were born into a world lit by fire, pulled by horses, or steam at best, and they died in a world knit together electronically, in which no two cities in the world are more than a long day's journey apart.

The curve that seems to us to be steepening so dramatically, has already formed its S, and is flattening toward the top.

The curve began 500 years ago, with print and the discovery of the "New World," then with the telescope and the microscope, and it steepened steadily, if slowly, until the 1850s, and then shot straight up at the turn of the last century.

Radio, the telephone, the airplane, the automobile, television: all this is familiar now, so familiar that we forget how drastically it altered everything.

All that was solid has melted into air.

My mother, born in a small town on the Green River in western Kentucky, lived thirty miles from the nearest city, on the Ohio. It was an overnight trip on a steamboat, a comfortable trip (the curve had steepened that far) taken once a year, when the tobacco crop was sold. Entertainment at home was sheet music, on the piano in the parlor. Jane Austen could have read it.

Caruso was a name. If my mother had gone to New York, or even Cincinnatti, she might have heard him sing. She had read about him in the papers that arrived (by boat) once a week. Or in the cities, by train, once a day. The curve had steepened that far.

Then one day she heard him sing. His voice arrived on a record, wound with a crank, shipped by steamboat from Louisville. You and I can hear him sing the same aria today. He had been off loaded into our cultural memory, immortalized.

The curve was steepening; heading straight up.

My mother was still a little girl when the phone rang. It was Uncle Jim, in Sorgho, twelve mile ...

SC is pork chops, really? I don't think so. Article has no clue. I grew up on pig pickins. Smoked for twelve to fourteen hours, charring the skin just right. That's classic SC. I don't know any family that didn't do at least one pig picken in their lives. Plus, vinegar sauce is just as normal here as mustard sauce, and where I grew up vinegar always won out. Plus, fried fat back is also classic South Carolina (I don't see that much elsewhere) and fried cornbread. Loved my grandma's fried cornbread - not a meat but fried in a enough bacon grease it should have been ;).

If you don't know what a pig pickin is just GIS "pig pickin".

Interceptor1: I'm a native Maryland resident and have never heard of corned ham. This sites information is bogus. Try crabs or oysters. Even chicken would work.


And I was born and raised in Michigan, and spent the majority of my life in various places across the state, and I have never once had corned beef, seen it offered as a menu item in any restaurant, or considered it "our" meat. I have more cube steak (in Italian steak sandwiches) than the average American, I'd bet, though.

Also, the author missed coney island hot dogs, which were invented in Michigan (and not Coney Island, as you'd think), and are considered a must-have item when in certain places within Michigan. As a state we have some of the highest standards for hot dogs in terms of what's allowed to be in them, and if you haven't had a Kowalski or Koegel hot dog, you're missing something and you're failing as a Michigan citizen.

The thought of corned beef doesn't appeal to me, and so I've never bothered. I don't know what the fark a "Dinty Moore" sandwich is. I've lived in Detroit, and I never heard of such a thing. I know Dinty Moore as the Hormel brand of beef stew, but not as a sandwich.

I don't know where she got her information, but it wasn't from a Michigander.

That would have worked for Michigan, too. I've certainly had WAY more venison than farking corned beef, and I'm not even a hunter. When someone in Michigan goes "up north" they're very often going there to fill the freezer with venison.

Really, the fact that she disallowed seafood (but went ahead and gave Maine "surf & turf" anyway) is a problem that limits her choices. Michigan is surrounded by the three largest lakes in this hemisphere, and you can bet we have a bunch more lakes and rivers inland, all being fed by the Great Lakes. I'd say we eat a larger share of freshwater fish than just about anyone else. But nOOOooooo... Seafood isn't allowed in this arbitrary, silly map.
