I dont even have trees for them to live. Just one puny ass excuse for a tree in the front yard. Its depressing.Yes, I sat on the back porch drinking coffee and vaping for a little bit this morning but the Sun was out for me. Was checking on my gardens to see if any critters got into them and did any damage. If you want some Squirrels @jwill I have hoards of them here~! Wish I could send some to you but these suckers come back unless you relocate them hundreds of miles.
I plan on moving away from here. We are waiting on some development to complete in the area so we get top dollar and we are gone. Just biding the time.If you want I can send some Acorns at the end of the summer. Probably take a few years to grown an Oak Tree..........
I was heavily into BBQ for a few years - that's actually when I got the name CrazyChef - all the crazy stuff I would 'Q. Even had my own BBQ joint for a little while. Another one of my favorites are atomic buffalo turds - also known as ABTs. They were really big on the BBQ circuit, until they became so popular that they became too generalized and every freakin' housewife in America started making dumbed down versions of them in their ovens. A true bastardization of what used to be an incredible smoked delicacy. On the circuit they were referred to as "BBQ Crack".
If you do them correctly, then yeah, the prep is fairly time consuming. But when they come out of the smoker...ABT's really enjoy......however takes so long to prepare
It kills the true smoke flavor. Don't do it.Been a while since I used my smoker but I remember the bags of wood chips say to soak them in water.
Use the Hillshire Farms ones for classic ABTs.Well the consensus is I will be making them for Fathers Day~! Going to be scouring the Supermarket Websites to see who has the Smokies. Hillshire Farms is probably what they have unless I hit one of the gourmet places like Trader Joes.
There are tons of variations these days. The ones I described are the original way of doing them.Some of the recipes are exactly like what you are saying and looking around I see others with both sides of the peppers used in each Popper. Have to make sure I take pics when I do these~!
Such a nice thing to read before I sign off and watch some TV. Awesome thing to read before I sign out~!Went and sat on someones back porch for a little while today and thought of this thread. It was hot as hell outside but the company was good and his wife made some fresh peach tea. Got to spend a few hours enjoying the wisdom of a much older and wiser friend. Happy Sunday everyone.
