Man, I love braunschweiger. It's been a while.

Went over to fuji ya friday for dinner with the ladyfriend. Here's some Chilean Uni, Bigeye Tuna, and a nice black ale from Japan (asahi kuronama).

The uni was really interesting. Incredible flavor... really, really horrible texture.

Asahi Extra Dry is a great beer if you can find it in the states. It's a nice change of pace from the carbonated high fructose corn syrup we call beer here.

With all of the foods I've eaten in Asia, the only ones that really got to me were the ones with odd textures. For the most part, everything tastes really good, it's the texture that can turn you off in a second.

I agree completely. I think the "problem" I had with the uni was I kept thinking "what does this texture remind me of," instead of thinking "this is sea urchin. It's tasty." and left it at that smile It really was delicious. Just needed to take it in smaller bites or the texture would get to me.

We have a groupon to use there so I'll be tryin it again before too long. I'll see if they have the Asahi extra dry, thanks for the heads up!

I rub them with my rib rub the night before, and wrap tightly in plastic wrap in 'fridge overnite. Build up a good head of smoke from the apple wood chunks, and toss 'em on. Maintain it at about 250*,according to the Weber T'mometer. Cook on indirect flame for first 45 mns or so, flipping twice, and spraying with concentrated apple juice, then brush with the BBQ sauce for last half hour. Last 5 minutes crank burner under ribs up to get a bit of blackening, which I really like. Pull at 150* degs internal or so, tent in foil and let rest. If the ribs have been in my freezer for a long time, I soak them in really concentrated apple juice overnite, them follow same steps.

So about a 45 minute shot and then another half hour with sauce on it?

Ya, about that, depending on how thick I cut 'em, and how much bone is in each one. Right before I brush the sauce on, I flip 'em over a couple times quick to get any liquid/grease of, or the BBQ sauce will "slide around' andnot "set". 20 -30 mns is about right for the sauce to glaze up.

I'm sure this has been done a few million times over. Classic, Wonder Bread and Spam.  Dressed up with provolone, candied jalapeños, and a hot sauce mayo. Wash it down with some spicy V8 and the 2% stuff.

I handle my heat pretty well and those jalapeños aren't that bad at all. They're the Nelson Bros. brand and I would highly recommend them if you like sweet pickles. Their pickled quail eggs are super good too.

 

Pretty sure I dipped my sandwich in that V8 once or twice. Edited by DrJuice1980

    • Yeah, the last couple of weeks have been pretty uneventful at my feeders. Then all of sudden today I was bombarded with multiple species!    I had 2 hen pheasants pecking around, then later the rooster showed up. There were robins everywhere. The blue jays are back to eating up the peanuts within minutes of me putting them out. I’ve actually been saving money the last couple weeks on sunflower chips, because the goldfinches disappeared. But today I had redpolls out there for the first time of the season. So I’ll have to start working some overtime to afford the food they go through! Have a lot more woodpeckers this winter than last year as well.
    • 🤣 man leech go chase some cottontails.   Man that was funny!
    • Yep mine are back as well other then the Cardinals and Blue Jay's yet.  
    • Hawg go to this site. It will help you id them.  https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/    
    • It looks like you were using my cell phone to take those pics. I'm also surprised an old guy like you could stay up that late! Just kidding!
    • Thank you, looks like I have a ton of them and not the goldies, I'm kind of disappointed. There's quite a bit of difference, I must have been fooled by the yellow on the siskins. It's been a while since I had either. I'm still looking for my bird books to identify the others. It seems the older I get the better I get at hiding stuff from myself! Thanks again, Mark
    • not my pic but here is a winter goldie. pretty drab
    • pine siskins. look a lot like winter goldies just smaller
    • Eyeguy, do you have a picture of a winter goldfinch and a pine siskin? I'm not 100% sure I know the difference. Any idea what the birds are I posted about with the colored backs? Those are on the safflower seed heavy, not on the niger at all. I wish I had a lens to take a picture to show you.
