I got a new cooker/smoker and tried it out. Chicken and ribs w/ pics - la_birdman
This was sort of a new thing for me. I'm used to grilling with a gas grill. Grilling burgers, chicken; the only thing I ever really grilled that took a substantial amount of time was a rack of ribs. So I got this new gadget and gave it a whirl. I cooked 2 racks of ribs (cut the slab in half a...

How do I get a rusted, stripped bolt off of a car battery hold down clamp? - la_birdman
I'm not talking about the positive and negative terminals, I got those off easily. This is a plastic piece that slides over the battery near it's base and it has a bolt that goes through it. There's a nut underneath (which I can't get to) and I'm pretty sure both are rusted and falling a...

What are some good places to eat at in Galveston? - la_birdman
I'll be going there this Friday but I haven't been there since I was a little kid. The only place is remember over there is Gaido's (I think that was the name of it. It had a big crab on the roof). Any places I should check out? Any good wing places would be appreciated too. Thanks y'all. ...

Does anyone know of where to find nice looking solar powered LSU lights? - la_birdman
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:...

LSU lost a huge fan today - la_birdman
Some of you know me, some don't but I check out this board daily, thanks to my dad. This morning my dad passed away in his sleep. He was a transplant from Pennsylvania but he fell in love with it here and even more with LSU. Every thing about it. He just loved it. We were supposed to ...

My first attempt at a roast beef with pics! - la_birdman
This was my first try at cooking a roast beef and I'm rather proud of myself! [img]http://i235.photobucket.com/albums/ee36/la_birdman/image_zpsf683753a.jpg[/img] This was after I took it out of the fridge this evening. I covered it with very coarsely ground peppercorns and set it on ...

My try at making Outback chicken wings - la_birdman
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...

Princess Leia walks the streets of NYC for 10 hours - la_birdman
I looked and didn't see it posted here or on the Movie/TV board. Sorry if Germans. I crack up every time I watch this! My favorite part is the "wrong movie" part. :lol: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DCDYSJwwE4...

Anyone ever cook wings in a crock pot? - la_birdman
I'm thinking about trying this but I don't really know how long to cook them for. I'm thinking maybe an hour and a half, then put them under the broiler to crisp them up for just a few minutes. Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks! ...

Does anyone have a recipe close to TJ Ribs' wings? - la_birdman
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...

How are the wings at TJ Ribs? - la_birdman
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...

Question about The Thing (1982). Possible spoilers just in case - la_birdman
I love this movie. I have it memorized and own it on dvd but I have a question that I can't seem to answer. Possible spoilers: (and if you haven't seen this movie, you should watch it) Shortly after the beginning, with the who...

New Orleans people, I need some recommendations for places to eat - la_birdman
Actually, in the Quarter. I'm taking my cousin and her daughter (don't ask :lol:) to New Orleans on Sunday. Neither have ever been and I can't really think of places to take them to experience the whole culinary experience. I know about Mothers and a place down near the river, close to Jacks...

How to download apps on an Apple TV? - la_birdman
I need some help with this. I have an Apple TV 2 and I'm trying to download the Watch ESPN app. I typed it all in correctly in the browser and it comes up (the exact same screen you'd see if you were using ESPN3) but to watch anything I have to download the app. So I go down to the "d...

My first go with short beef ribs in the oven. (Photos) - la_birdman
Ok, I tried to copy Degas' recipe even though I don't have a grill, my bro in law is borrowing it, but I wanted to try this. I've had these marinating for over 24 hours. They already smell amazing. I'm praying I don't mess this up. They smell so good. I have them on a cookie rac...

Anybody seeing termites on their carports or in garages? - la_birdman
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....

Does anyone know of any good frozen lo mein? - la_birdman
I've tried the frozen bags of PF Changs noodles, think it said Dan Dan noodles on the bag, but I wasn't really impressed. Not sure if it was because it was frozen, the sauce packets or what. I love good Chinese lo mein but has anyone gotten any good packages in the frozen section at the ...

Your thoughts on Wing Street wings from Pizza Hut - la_birdman
I thought about stopping at picking some up but I've had wings from Domino's before and they weren't very good. Not sure if it was because they were oven baked rather than fried but they weren't good. I've had Pluckers wings before when I was over in BR and loved them. Wondering if t...
