re: Any coffee roasters here? - Badmug
I ran my HotTop all afternoon yesterday and about to crank it back up this morning. I get my beans from SM's exclusively but have been thinking about some new sources. Thanks for posting good links to them. The one thing I've never done with my HotTop is create custom roast profiles...and that's wha...

re: Headed to Jost Van Dyke BVIs - Badmug
Go park yourself at Soggy Dollar with a Painkiller in one hand and ring toss in the other. Let the fish live another day. I just returned from a week on Grand Cayman. Spent one day pulling a marlin spread and another casting flies to bonefish and tarpon. Lots of fish on both trips but none hungr...

re: custom crawfish boiler - Badmug
I have owned and used that large model Blue Bug Boiler for the last 4 years and love it. Water boils quickly and remains boiling. Spigot makes draining and clean-up a breeze. The deep boiling basket is easily removable. They sell a shallower, flat bottomed strainer that allows you to steam crabs...

re: Are High End Rifles worth it? - Badmug
For what it's worth, I ordered a Noveske 10.5" Gen 2 complete rifle in .300BLK along with an AAC silencer in December 2012. Ironically, Sandy Hook happened two days after my order. I just got the stamp and my silencer in December 2013. My rifle has yet to go into production and will now be a Gen ...

re: Orijen dry food for Boxer puppy (update in OP) - Badmug
If you've got a good source for Orijen, I highly recommend it as the best. I raised my hunting dog on their Large Puppy for the first 12-16 months. I then transitioned her to Regional Red and I couldn't be happier with her performance and looks. As was said, super premium Orijen requires less volume...

re: Maybe wrong board but here goes...I cannot stand to fly, I don't - Badmug
I never would have guessed that so many others shared my fear of flying phobia. I avoid flying at all costs and luckily only have to fly for leisure travel. My fear increased as I got older. Last year I freaked out the night before a flight to the BVI's and had to cancel a 10 day vacation. I dec...

re: Houston People - Decent Place With Frozen Bellinis? - Badmug

Midway does sell some great steaks for sure. Even better is their in-house marinated fajita meat tenderized with sour Mexican oranges...when it's done "right". Consistency is an issue with their fajita marinade. They do an excellent job with their deer processing in the back. Pete's Fine Meats o...

Another option for sushi/non-sushi mix would be Azuma, just a few blocks further south on Kirby. Get some hot rock Kobe beef while the others in your party enjoy some damn...
