| Food and Drink Board|| My Charcoal Review - JasonL79 on 3/18/13 at 8:13 am|
After reading a lot of feedback (and some complaints) on here about Charcoal, I decided to give it a try on Sunday. There was no wait which was nice and I didn't find the ordering to be as difficult as some has made it out to be. Very similar to Company Burger or Parkway where you order at the front...

Tried Mr B's crab cake recipe this weekend and could not get the mix to hold for anything. Tried putting it in the refrigerator first then tried the freezer for a little bit but nothing seemed to help.

I've heard a lot in the last few months about Payton's arrogance and how he treaded the media.
Does anyone have proof(videos) that he mis-treated the media or is is just hearsey? I've watched a lot of his press conferences in the past and never noticed it myself. Not anything out of the ordinary ...

I haven't seen this posted yet but below is a link to Fujita's statement on the so-called bounty system. It's hard to believe all these players would lie about this because if they are lying it can come back to bite them in the ass.

| Food and Drink Board|| Stew versus Gumbo - JasonL79 on 11/11/11 at 11:45 am|
What is the main difference between a stew and a gumbo? Is it just the amount of roux and the thickness? If it's just the roux, how much more roux do you add to make it a stew?
I grew up eating a lot of stews (seafood, shrimp, wild duck, wild goose,etc) and am not sure on the difference. ...

Anyone heard of this place or have been there? If so how was it? They are opening one in New Orleans in a few months. It's aimed at restaurants and not the general public. It looks like a pretty cool place and sounds like it might be a good concept.
