    What's on the grill

    Looks like a great summer time meal!

    Time for a smoke

    You could try cooking at a lower temp next time. Too high a temp can yield dry ribs, too low can yield greasy ribs.

    Gutter covers?

    I have steel screen that a friend who sidelines in gutters installed. They have been up for 4 years and I haven't had to clean out gutters since. I checked the downspouts during the heavy rain today and they were flowing nicely. My roof is quite messy with all the debris from the trees but the gutters are good.

    You could try epsom salt. Google for info. Magnesium deficiency perhaps? I have no blight yet.

    2018 gardens

    What I did was to use 1 gal ice cream bucket with the bottom cut out and placed into the soil a couple inches around the plant as a barrier to keep them away from the tomatoes. Grassy areas next to the garden soil is where they come from.

    Check the stalk at ground level, it could be cut worm. I've had that problem before I made raised beds.

    Meat slicer are they worth it?

    I personally prefer using a Victorinox slicer knife now. I found that with disassembling and cleaning a meat slicer after use, I wasn't saving any time.

    Pork belly bacon

    Dry brine with Mortons Tenderquick, amount directions per pound are on the package in a ziplock in the fridge. Add seasonings like onion, garlic, black pepper, maple sugar or brown, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg. What ever you prefer. Take meat out of brine and let sit in Fridge overnight. Smoke around the 130 degree mark for 12 hours (for my liking) or as smokey as you like. Cut into 1/8" slices and cook in the oven 425 degrees for 20 to 30 min to your desired crispness.

    Spring Is Upon Us

    Mama gets pretty relaxed in her spa, she leaves a dump every time she is in it.
  10. I didn't go back to check after the first time out. It was too dry and we had gotten about a .25" of rain since the blizzard. Then it was a 100 degrees. Plenty of rain lately but too late.

    I stopped at Lowes yesterday and got restocked at 9.88 per 18.6 lb double pack. No limit indicated.

    I see Home Depot advertising for Memorial day but no Kingsford double bag on sale. Has anyone seen any on sale anywhere? I am down to my last bag and need to stock up, Memorial weekend is usually the time to do it.

  14. I was out north of Elk River Monday and found nothing. Really dry out.

    Spring Is Upon Us

    I noticed the same thing, I thought it was because I was out in the garden all day which is by my feeders.
