| Food and Drink Board|| Doing a Reuben sandwich challenge here in Chattanooga, how should I judge? - sonusfaber on 5/12/14 at 1:46 pm|
What are the classic ways to judge a reuben? I know what the ingredients are. Should they focus more on the meat or the kraut? Also, should you be able to taste the kraut for what it is or is the point of the dressing to mix in the kraut and take over the flavor? Thanks.
So far I have tried 3 in ...
| Food and Drink Board|| Only thing I miss about LA...bout to go get crawfish here in Chattanooga, TN - sonusfaber on 4/11/14 at 4:33 pm|

I don't want to get off on a rant here, but it's time for that thread again.
I recently got to wondering about this topic again, because my parents are back on a, what I'm sure will be short-lived, kick. They just don't get it...and if you ask my dad, he blames being very obese on genetics and no...

Who here only runs it through the mechanical wash periodically?

Who waxes every month?
Who uses a clay bar?
Who has actually used abrasive polishers?
