I'm not looking for anything very bright, just little LEDs, sort of like you'd use to line your front walkway or something. I found one with Mike the Tiger holding a lantern but it's out of stock. Any help would be greatly appreciated. :geauxtigers:...View Topic - Replies (3)

My first attempt at trying to copy Outback's wings actually turned out surprisingly great! I like their wings, my only complaint is that they're usually pretty small. So I got a pack of whole chicken wings, cut the drummette from the flat, obviously left the wing tips on. From s...View Topic - Replies (6)

I finally tried them and they're awesome. I'm not really concerned with getting the sauce right, I have the sauce. But if anyone has a duplicate or close recipe for wings like those and would like to share, I'd be appreciative. I thought they grilled them but there are no grill ma...View Topic - Replies (3)

I was there last night and got my ribs, I'm a sucker for ribs but the table next to us ordered some wings and they looked really good. Are the wings there any good? I like ribs a ton so I usually don't order anything different just in case whatever it is isn't really that good. On a scale...View Topic - Replies (9)

The ones that show up every year. I can't remember when they usually show up. For some reason, I thought it was in the fall. I've seen a few here. Not the flying ones, but they were on my truck so maybe they just lost their wings....
