There's an Emeril Lagasse version with vodka. ...doesn't seem to change the taste much, tho. I prefer to consume some vodka, then the fish, then more vodka.

Ice Fishing, Gravlax, and alcohol

A Canadian friend once explained to me that ice fishing is much safer than other types of fishing, particularly in polluted waters. "Each time you pull a fish out of the water, you stick it head-down in a snow bank," sez he. "Then, when sunset nears, as it gets colder and you're packing up to leave,...

...all the better/cheaper manual stuffer stores don't ship to Canada.Might have to go the individual tube way yet. It's not the best stuffer out there, but I bought a 5 lb. manual stuffer from Sears for about USD 50. It's clunky and weights a ton, but it works. (Some day, it'll make a great boat an...

Mine's a 5 lb. manual stuffer, so I couldn't tell you. I just bought an electric grinder myself, but haven't used it for stuffing. In my experience, using a hand-cranked grinder for stuffing, you have to hold the casing with one hand, stuff meat with a stomper with the other, turn the crank (or oper...

Re: Brisket

I'd still be a little leery about buying meat at Wally world for fear of getting "Peking Moo Guy" AKA "Chinese Bully Beef" respleat with a Wally World full of toxic additives. ... On a side note has anyone ever tried Buffalo brisket? Yeah, I bet ol' Mister Sam is spinning in his grave, seeing what ...

Post it! Sorry- - talked it over with our beloved moderator, and I don't think we can post it. :sad: (...liability issues, privacy issues, they'd have to kill us, :shock: and other minor reasons.) If you'll send me a private email, though, I'll send a copy and you can have a look. There's no way to...

Re: Brisket

...told her it was $12.68 a kilo. What do you think of that price? Seems a little high to me. ...looks like the exchange rate is about par these days, so that's both USD & $Canadian 5.75 per pound. In North Carolina and Texas, both places get their meat from a mega-feedlot-slaughterer-packer in Mon...

I know about samitches but not sammys or sammies. Then again I have heard tell of sand witches so what do I know? I checked with the authorities (grandkids), who assure me that samitches always have peanut budder in 'em, and you always take 'em along when you're going on an adventure. We made some ...

Hey Duck, A "sammy" is a dude's term for "sandwich". The term came from that 10 year old Rachael Ray on her cooking show. You should hear what she calls olive oil. Thanks, I guess. :roll: ...hate to think what she calls it. ...not one of my favorite TV personalities. She did a show on places to eat...

Uh oh! Better use some of that Colorado mop sauce that I was telling you about- - bourbon & soy sauce. It won't cure the condition, but you won't feel bad about it. ...not until morning.

I'm not sure about a spread sheet. We'll have to go to Siara on this one.
Okay. Thanks.
Internal error...? Eeeewww! Maybe you aren't eating enough of the right sausage.
