| Food and Drink Board|| Finished off a smoked brisket in the slow cooker - BayouBlitz on 6/16/14 at 1:41 pm|
Saturday, I smoked a 4 lb brisket for about 5 hours at 275-300 degrees, using apple wood chips.
I just used a dry rub which consisted of good smoked paprika, hungarian paprika, mustard powder, ancho chili powder and Slap Yo Mammas.
Wrapped it in foil and cooked at 325 until the internal temp w...
| Political Talk|| Will you admit that there are smarter people on the other side? - BayouBlitz on 5/14/14 at 2:19 pm|
Meaning...will you admit that people exist with differing political views than you that are smarter than you?
My guess is that most people on this board won't.
I lean left, and I know some brilliant people that are conservatives. The smartest person I've ever met is a little left of me.
| Food and Drink Board|| Going to make black bean soup tonight - BayouBlitz on 5/10/14 at 1:40 pm|
I soaked the beans overnight and reserved some of the liquid. I also fried up some bacon. My plan is to:
Saute onions in bacon fat, then some garlic in a cast iron pot. Then add chicken stock, some of the soaking liquid, beans, salt and pepper, chili powder and a little vinegar and simmer for ...
| Food and Drink Board|| What's the best dish to judge a Mexican restaurant? - BayouBlitz on 5/7/14 at 8:53 am|
If you had to go to 5 Mexican restaurants, which dish would you order at all 5 to judge? (I'm not doing this, just curious.)
Something basic? Complicated?
I find myself ordering chili relleno a lot when it's my first visit.
Chips and salsa are a good gauge at first. But what about mai...
| Political Talk|| Republicans: Anybody other than Cruz or Santorum - BayouBlitz on 3/9/14 at 10:06 am|
And I will consider voting R over Hillary.
For the record, I am socially liberal and fiscally conservative.
But if either of these clowns gets the nomination, I have no choice other than to conclude that the R party is still too broken.
| Food and Drink Board|| Good potato side to grill w burgers? - BayouBlitz on 10/11/13 at 9:04 am|
I want to do something potato on the grill as a side for burgers. Something other than fries or baked potato. Any ideas?...

Gonna try some homemade Phillies. What is the board's recommendation for cheese. Or cheese sauce?...
| Food and Drink Board|| Andouille etouffee over mashed potatoes - BayouBlitz on 9/3/13 at 12:45 pm|
Eating it for lunch at work today. Pretty damn good I must say. Sorry, no pics.
Started by chopping the sausage into rolls, then quartering them, then browning lightly and set asind.
Made a blonde roux with part oil, part butter. Added in onions and red and green bell peppers. After a few ...
| Political Talk|| Black teen saves white child - BayouBlitz on 7/16/13 at 11:06 am|
Where's the MSM on this? According to this right leaning board, this should be the headlines everywhere. Race not focused on with this one. At all.
| Political Talk|| So, should Zimmerman get off completely scott free? - BayouBlitz on 7/12/13 at 12:08 pm|
According to what actual evidence has been shown, I don;t see how he can get convicted of murder. Whether or not it was self defense, I have no idea. I wasn't there. But the evidence just isn't there to come close to a conviction.
Having said that, we know he was armed and pursued an individua...
| Food and Drink Board|| Cubed pork chops. Who knew? - BayouBlitz on 7/10/13 at 8:05 pm|
Was at Winn Dixie a few nights ago and was browsing the meat section for something to fry up right quick for after work. They had cubed pork chops on sale for a very low price. I've never seen cubed pork chops. So I decided to try them.
Just fried them up tonight. They were decent size, about...
| Political Talk|| Video of DUI checkpoint. (More info in orig post) - BayouBlitz on 7/5/13 at 8:00 pm|
Cops get pissed immediately because this guy knows the law. And they don't. And they get real quiet when they discover the camera. I'm actually very surprised the camera didn't have 'an accident'.
"A driver recorded his...
| Political Talk|| So do liberals love or hate the Jewish? - BayouBlitz on 6/30/13 at 8:05 pm|
I've read on this board that liberals hate Israel.
Then I've read that liberals love Hollywood, which is run by the Jews, who are mostly Democrat.
So which is it? Or is it situational; dependent upon which makes liberals look worse?...
| Political Talk|| So, Wikileaks was villified - BayouBlitz on 6/23/13 at 8:45 am|
by the right wingers on this board, heavily, in the past. And now that Wikileaks has befriended Snowden...not a peep.
Did Wikileaks endanger USA soldiers in the past? Does Snowden revealing US intelligence endanger Americans in the future?
Does who is in charge in the White House dictate y...
| Tiger Rant|| Apparently Jared Mitchell plays for the Barons - BayouBlitz on 6/15/13 at 12:15 pm|
I went to my first Birmingham Barons game of the season last night. (The new Regions ball park is pretty awesome.)
Looked up to see who was batting, and sure enough, Jared Mitchell. He was batting .147, and popped up 2 bunts for easy outs, one with the bases loaded.
I know he had surgery, an...
| Political Talk|| Where is the $5 a gallon gas - BayouBlitz on 6/10/13 at 2:42 pm|
That so many people predicted? I just paid $3.17 for 87 octane. And this is the time of year when gas prices are supposed to be higher.
In 2011 and 2012, predicting $5 a gallon gas was all the rage. And that was a short term prediction. And it's not like the Middle East has been without flare...
| Tiger Rant|| 13 of 16 teams that won game 1 - BayouBlitz on 6/8/13 at 5:30 pm|
of the Supers went on to win the series (in last 2 years), just said at the end of VU game. (VU did not look good, except for Kemp.)
Pretty good odds for LSU. Factor in OU burned their best pitcher and LSU leads in virtually every category, statistically. Add in huge HF advantage. And one of ...
| Political Talk|| Things conservatives on this board hate, vehemently. - BayouBlitz on 6/4/13 at 10:01 am|
Based on thread titles and content. (No particular order...well, after Obama.)
1) [b]Obama.[/b] Everything is his fault all the time. Even in parallel universes. And alien planets.
2) [b]Hillary. [/b] She's a dyke bitch.
3) [b]MSNBC. [/b] Communist secret agents trying to take down America ...
| Tiger Rant|| My Waaay too late impressions from Sunday - BayouBlitz on 5/28/13 at 1:10 pm|
I'm not one to go to many live sporting events (haven't been to an LSU event in many years) but since I live in Southeast Birmingham, I just couldn't pass up Sundays Chamionship game.
1) Lots of purple and gold. I'd say a solid 2 to 1 LSU fans to VU fans. No surprise there.
2) A lot of eye...
| Food and Drink Board|| Gonna give up my 2 secrets to bad arse Red Beans - BayouBlitz on 4/20/13 at 9:36 pm|
Because I'm in a good mood tonight. And I have a batch simmering that tastes awesome.
1) Butter. I use about 3/4 of a stick of unsalted butter for a pretty big batch.
2) Vinegar. Maybe 2 tblsp for the same batch.
You can't really taste either when it's done, but they add a little depth...

| Movie/TV Board|| What happened to The Soup? - BayouBlitz on 4/16/12 at 3:57 pm|
I used to LOVE this show. It was 30 minutes of gold. But in the last 2 years, it has lost it's entertainment value. It's just not funny any more.
And the skits with visiting celebrities are just horrendous.
I think I will stop recording it, and just catch it if it's on. And if it's not, n...
| Movie/TV Board|| Deathproof - 2007 (long) - BayouBlitz on 2/24/12 at 6:17 pm|
What a piece of crap. I know it's ccol to love Tarantino and all, but jeez.
The dialogue just goes on and on and on and on. And it's not even good dialogue. It's some quirky, witty, unrealistic rambling. I had it DVR'd and I wanted to skip through dialogue so many times, but avoided the tempt...
| Food and Drink Board|| Steak sandwiches - BayouBlitz on 2/15/12 at 1:15 pm|
I love to make them at home. I generally get thin cut steaks (of a variety of cuts) and season them with Slap Ya Mamma and toss them in the skillet with a bit of oil. I get a nice color on each side.
Then I toss a slice of cheese (Havarti, swiss or cheddar) on while it's still in the skillet.

Part of me wants to laugh, and part of me wants to strangle the shite out of this guy...
People like this certainly don't help the country out in tough times.
