    Just Food and Drink

    Yes, it is pork. The whole layered seasoned pork mound is cooking to the right of the guy in the chef coat. It is cooked with lump coal.

    I was looking to purchase a Forscan diagnostic interface for my 2017 F150. The main reason is to permanently disable the auto start/stop. Does any one have experience with these? I saw a couple other things I could do such as disable the seat belt ding and have fog lights stay on when the headlights are on auto. Anyone else find a useful change they made to a Ford/Mazda with Forscan?

    Vikings vs eagles

    The Vikings have to win. I can't imagine having to deal with the Eagle fans who will be here for the Super Bowl if they win. The Eagles/Falcons game last week was pretty sloppy. Neither team looked great. I know the Eagles regular season record is impressive, but look at their schedule/results this year. The win against the Panthers in week 6 is a good win and the week 14 win on the road against the Rams is impressive. The rest of their schedule was horrible. 1 Sep 10 PHI 30 @ WAS 17 2 Sep 17 PHI 20 @ KC 27 3 Sep 24 NYG 24 @ PHI 27 4 Oct 01 PHI 26 @ LAC 24 5 Oct 08 ARI 7 @ PHI 34 6 Oct 12 PHI 28 @ CAR 23 7 Oct 23 WAS 24 @ PHI 34 8 Oct 29 SF 10 @ PHI 33 9 Nov 05 DEN 23 @ PHI 51 10 Bye 11 Nov 19 PHI 37 @ DAL 9 12 Nov 26 CHI 3 @ PHI 31 13 Dec 03 PHI 10 @ SEA 24 14 Dec 10 PHI 43 @ LA 35 15 Dec 17 PHI 34 @ NYG 29 16 Dec 25 OAK 10 @ PHI 19 17 Dec 31 DAL 6 @ PHI 0

    Ski Doo Coolant

    I was doing some maintenance on my 2014 Ski Doo Renegade and noticed the coolant reservoir was really low. When I was at the dealership I picked up the BRP XPS coolant. The display says their is coolant specifically for machines 2013 & newer and coolant specifically for ski doo's older than 2013. I also have a 2012 Renegade that could use a top off on the coolant reservoir as well. Is there really a difference in the coolant? Can I use it in both machines? The guy at the dealership could not answer the question as he was not a service tech. Thanks for the help!

    Teddy goes down

    I think we all need to keep in mind that the defense is basically the exact same group of players and coaches that were together all of last year. They should be performing better than the offense. Whereas, the offense has been completely reshaped during the off season and through injury. It will take time to gel. Also, remember the impact Diggs made last year once he was ready to play. Zimmer just made the same comment about Treadwell not being ready yet. Not saying he will make a huge impact, but he could provide an improvement over Johnson. The O line needs to get it figured out. Berger is solid, Fusco and Clemmings are improving. Boone/Sirles and Smith need to get better quickly. The defense carried the team through the last two weeks, which are also the most difficult weeks with the exception of GB in GB. They are in great shape with what appears to be a favorable schedule based on early results in the NFL. If the offense improves and the defense remains solid, they should have a good chance to win in most games. Not saying they will win all games, just a chance to win. And hope it doesn't come down to a last second field goal!

    Canning thread 2016

    Thanks Early Riser! Beans are definitely coming in. I will try both recipes. The tomato sauce sounds spot on. Someone posted a thread about stuffed peppers. I can remember my mom and grandmothers recipe always had a jar of tomato sauce. About a third went into the ground beef, rice and onion mixture that got stuffed into the peppers and the rest was poured over the top when baking.

    Canning thread 2016

    The vacuum sealer will seal the jars like pouring hot brine into the jar and letting cool with the lids on. They do indent so there is no/or little air in the jar. I boil my jars and lids before filling so they are already sterilized. One of the first times I tried to make peppers, I poured the hot liquid over the peppers and they were very mushy when I opened the jars. Tried it again with more alum and grape leaves, same result. The hot brine is not good. A buddy told me about the vacuum sealer trick and I have been doing it since with great results. Very easy and great crisp to the peppers. Just made another five quarts last night after picking from the garden. Been eating my own, my friends and his dads all made the same way for years.

    Canning thread 2016

    Would you mind sharing your tomato sauce and dilly bean recipes? When I was younger I used to help my grandmother make canned tomatoes and I have not been able to find a recipe that turned out the same. From what I can remember, we blanched the tomatoes to remove the skins and then cooked them down, but that's about all I remember. I believe it was a hot bath as well. The tomatoes were not chunky in the jar. They were more of a sauce. She made the best spaghetti sauce with it and it was an excellent chili/soup base. I know we didn't run them threw any kind of grinder either. Help anyone? Last year I posted a canning question that I did not receive much feedback, so I thought I would ask again. Does anyone use a vacuum sealer jar lid attachment for canning peppers and pickles? I have been using a friends recipe for peppers and they turn out excellent. Very crisp! Anyone have a pickle or any other recipes they care to share for vacuum sealer use? Here is the banana pepper recipe: Mix: 3 cups of cold water (filtered or spring works best) per 1 cup of white vinegar In each jar: Add 2 toes of garlic, 1 tablespoon of canning salt, 1 tablespoon pickling spice and 1/4 teaspoon of alum. Stuff jars with peppers cut in half (or however you choose). I usually add a half habanero to a few of my jars for hotter peppers. Fill with brine to cover peppers, add about a teaspoon of corn oil to the top of each jar before you lid and seal them. Seal with vacuum sealer attachment and store a few weeks before opening. They can be shelf stored and not refrigerated until opened. Thanks!

    Jared Allen is out for tomorrows game. Hopefully the Panthers can get a win and he heals before the Superbowl. Sounds like a broken bone in his foot though.

    If I want

    Slow Cooker Pulled Beef Sandwiches are a favorite of mine. We always use chuck roast in a slow cooker for about 8 - 10 hours. I start with about a cup or half jar of the sliced pepperoncini's in the bottom of the slow cooker, put roast on top. Sprinkle one packet of the dry Good Seasons Italian dressing mix on the roast, salt and pepper, and pour one can of beer on top. Close and cook all day. Makes for a very tender roast with great juices for the sandwiches. You can add olives, onion, diced celery or whatever you want. This is just the base recipe.

    Chicken - brine or not to brine

    I use this base brine for whole turkeys, chickens and thick cut pork chops. Brining bags are great by the way! I have also deviated from this by scrapping the rosemary, peppercorns, and orange peels for a couple tablespoons of pickling spice. Blackjack is spot on. Do not overcook chicken. Safe cooking temp is 165 degrees. I usually get the thermometer in the thickest part of the chicken thigh to 160 degrees and pull it. It will make it to 165. Ingredients3 cups Apple Juice Or Apple Cider2 gallons Cold Water4 Tablespoons Fresh Rosemary Leaves5 cloves Garlic, Minced1-1/2 cup Kosher Salt2 cups Brown Sugar3 Tablespoons Peppercorns5 whole Bay LeavesPeel Of Three Large OrangesPreparation InstructionsCombine all ingredients in a large pot. Stir until salt and sugar dissolve. Bring to a boil, then turn off heat and cover. Allow to cool completely, then pour into a large brining bag or pot. Place uncooked turkey in brine solution, then refrigerate for 16 to 24 hours. When ready to roast turkey, remove turkey from brine. Submerge turkey in a pot or sink of fresh, cold water. Allow to sit in clean water for 15 minutes to remove excess salt from the outside. Discard brine. Remove turkey from clean water, pat dry, and cook according to your normal roasting method.

    pickled pepperoncini recipes

    I am surprised there were not many replies to this topic. I have been making pickled banana peppers for a number of years now using a vacuum sealer rather than boiling the filled jars & lids. No matter what I did, boiling the jars always made for soft peppers. My recipe is below. However, searching the internet for banana pepper recipe's everyone says to boil (or process) the jarred peppers for 10 minutes due to botulism concerns. My grandmother never did that when she made pickles or peppers. She basically followed the second recipe below that did not use a vacuum sealer. I have not made the peppers under the second recipe, but was wondering if any others make peppers without the water bath. Both are 3:1 (water:vinegar), however there is more salt in the second recipe. Anyone else care to share their recipe for crispy pickled banana peppers? Vacuum Sealer Pickled Peppers Mix: 3 cups of cold water(filtered or spring works best) per 1 cup of white vinegar In each jar: Add 2 toes of garlic, 1 tablespoon of canning salt, and 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon of alum. Stuff jars with peppers cut in half (or however you choose) Fill with brine to cover peppers, add about a teaspoon of corn oil to the top of each jar before you lid and seal them. Seal with vacuum sealer attachment. should be ready to eat in 1 month or so. Pickled Peppers Without Water Bath You need to do a 3 to 1 ratio of vinegar and water so 1 cup white distilled vinegar to 3 cups water and 3 tablespoons pickling salt. I believe these are the bare minimum for salt and acidity for safe canning. I do pickled jalapeños. I cut them in slices ( if you don't like them too hot remove the seeds with a filet knife before slicing them. In the sterilized canning jar stuff two cloves of garlic, 3 heads of dill ( can substitute dill seed or dried dill) and cram full sliced peppers. Boil the water, salt and vinegar. When it comes to a boil pour into jar leaving 1/8 inch head space at top and seal. Leave these on the counter till they cool. You should hear the tops pop when they seal. Remove the bands and store for a minimum of 2 weeks to get the dill flavor. Check periodically that the top are still sealed. This will keep the peppers crunchy by not reprocessing them in hot water. I have gone at least two years without any problem.

    Hardwood flooring vs Engineered flooring

    Very timely conversation for me. We just began the process of building our new home. We have a custom builder who is a high quality guy and only wants to use hardwood floors. It is already baked into the price of our home. We asked about engineered floors, not to be cost conscious, but because we were told that the expansion gaps are significantly less during the changing seasons. He does not like the limited amount of times you can sand and refinish and that they may be easier to scratch or dent. Anyone familiar with the durability? Is there a harder engineered product available? I have had hardwood floors for a long time and don't see the need for numerous refinishing's. Also, the handscraped floors are really popular now and my wife wants them. Our builder is advising against it because the uneven texture limits the ability to refinish. Anyone familiar with the ability to refinish handscraped floors? Thanks!

    FA Thread....

    Agree that 3rd string QB should come later in the draft. Cheap and you never know what you could end up with. Otherwise, we just end up rehashing MBT potential. Must have for the vikes at this point are left guard, MLB, corner and #1 receiver. I know people are going to argue other positions as needs, but these have no one currently in the role on the roster. First round draft talent should fill one starting role. Probably either Waynes or Cooper, so that should address the #1 receiver or corner back. If they get lucky in the second round and pick up another starter, that leaves two open positions that free agency has not filled to this point. Hopefully Spielman has a plan. Could Peterson be dealt for LG and/or a MLB? We could rely on the thunder and lightning RB duo of Asiata and McKinnon. Well maybe at this point we should just consider them an afternoon rain shower...
