It's just Giant and Safeway and Harris Teeter here. I hear good thing about Wegman's subs, but I don't want to drive all the way across to NoVA just to have one.
There's a Wegman's in Lanham in P.G. just off the beltway.

HooRay.... Game Day for the Ravens.

In the spirit of HSHS, I got up @ 5am to prepare our gametime BBQ feast:









They have pork shoulder (picnic) on sale @ Giant for just over a buck-some a pound: got me 17 lbs for $24 (it's $5.99 a lb @ Whole Foods).

Got my trusty Backwood's Chubby loaded up with peachwood and away I go.

Doin it Myron Mixon style... ought to be good.

Mad jealous. Looks good.

I'll probably just resort to a cigar and a pack of turkey burgers.

You into BBQ? Cool!

I've been trained by 3 World Champions: Myron Mixon, Johnny Trigg, and Paul Kirk. PM me with your e-mail address if you'd like a copy of the manual I made (in MS Word format, with pics) when I did Myron Mixon's 'Jack's Old South' class in Unadilla GA. Got all his recipes and technique in it.

Here's how it turned out:









Last one is my new Cordoba Solista acoustic.

That looks pretty impressive! I think you win the meat BBQ. Chicken, salmon and steaks is all that happens on our grill. Never tried a big piece like that or the low and slow.

okay what is with all the Inaugural Balls and Galas?

I counted 33 that were listed and I'm betting there are many that are not listed.

Downtown must be fun to get around. Not.

I hear Leonsis is throwing OV a party. " I told him I’d have an engagement party for him at my house."

http://www.nbcwashington.com/blogs/c...187438151.html

Nice. Did the three players that got married this summer get engagement parties too? I'm always out of the loop. Anyone know? I wonder if other owners do this too? It's a very thoughtful gesture by an owner.

Those were the "picnic" cut, which is above the "butt". Of course, the "butt" is actually part or the shoulder, as opposed to what it sounds like it should be.

I pulled the meat and made sure to have hamburger buns handy, so my son's friends could either make a sandwich or eat it just off of their plates, which many did.

Would have preferred the "butt" portion, and Whole Foods did have it, but the extra $50 I would have spent wouldn't have been worth spending. The just over $1 a pound price made this event a real steal.

I used my Backwood's Chubby to cook the 2 picnics:

http://www.backwoods-smoker.com/inde...d=64&Itemid=85

I also own one of their grills... the Backwood's "Pit Bull":

http://www.backwoods-smoker.com/inde...d=78&Itemid=97

But you don't need to spend all that money to get a professional smoker or grill: those picnics can be smoked on a $25-75 dollar Weber kettle grill (Weber kettle grills, or the Smokey Mountain types, are GREAT), with great result. I did those @ 225 degrees, and at 225, the meat cooks at a rate of 1.5 lbs per hour.

So, 10lbs @ 225 degrees would take you 15 hours, providing you didn't open or take the lid off (If you're lookin.... you ain't cookin).

For taste: I did an injection of apple juice/vinegar/hot sauce/sugar/salt/ and a couple extras and let it marinate overnight. I used the "Simply Marvelous Spicy Apple" rub, and for smoke, I used 12 oz's of peachwood chunks.

I don't add BBQ sauce, but had some Head Country and Blues Hog on hand for those wanting some. If you wish to make your own, here's my recipe I created that's pretty popular:

http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/bi...-bbq-sauce.htm

You should try smoking that salmon & chicken some weekend. The salmon can be smoked in 10-15 minutes, and the chicken in about an hour.

Drop me a PM if I can help.

-Bill

Hey guys!! The name is Mike and I am semi-new here. I am a big Capitals fan and have been going to a lot of games since I moved to VA back in 96!! Favorite Cap of all time is Joey J.
I also like Edmonton, I really don't know how I became a fan except for the fact that they had a ton of my favorite players as a kid and my first jersey as a kid was an Oilers.

So, anyone considering a vacation destination, I can't recommend Thailand highly enough. Just an awesome country.

If you can find affordable airfare, it's dirt-cheap. It's much cleaner than you'd expect, has amazing food, a ton to do, and seemingly everyone there speaks at least functional English.

I hear good things about Thai food. Haven't had Thai food since Pad Thai in Christchurch, New Zealand, but I should really try it again.

Was browsing through Zagat feed on my RSS and I happened to trip upon the "Top 5" Thai restaurants in the DC area. Should take a look if you're interested.

Thanks for the link. I was planning on trying out Johnny Monis' place, but hadn't heard of the others.

You should really try Thai food again. It's somewhat reminiscent of Indian food in some of the preparation and ingredients (things like chilies, galangal, coconut milk, garlic, etc.), but has some different flavor profiles.

There was an article a year or so ago on CNN, where their travel staff rated the world's most delicious 50 dishes. Massaman curry was #1. That's a very good starting point for getting into Thai cuisine.

So any car junkies in here? My car came with an open differential and I'm looking to add a Quaife LSD to it this spring. Was wondering if anyone has any experience with them.

Don't be. The importance of the interview s incredibly overrated. Most of the hiring process is automated nowadays. As long as you come off as personable, professional, and eager to learn, you'll be fine.

I think it helps to do a little research on the company, and maybe consider to ask a few well thought out questions.

Don't be intimidated, it's a human just like you. Don't feel like you need to let the interviewer have full control. I think it helps to show that you can be assertive and that you are smart (by asking good questions). It shows that you are personable and lets them see a side of you they didn't ask a question to see.

deep breaths and good luck

Anyone watch that "The Americans" show the other night?

DVR'd it, but haven't watched it.

Hoping it's another as good as Homeland.
