| Food and Drink Board|| re: Boos Cutting Boards - BigDropper on 1/11/15 at 12:51 pm|
I have a couple of BOOS Blocks and I must say that they are used very infrequently. My cutting board rule of thumb is that wood boards are for fruit & veg, bread, or cooked foods. I only cut raw foods on plastic because they are easier to clean and sanitize. In my experience the best boards for pres...

| Outdoor Board|| re: Pellet Gun Question - BigDropper on 12/25/14 at 7:17 pm|
Imho, pellet weight & caliber are more important factors to consider over fps when it comes to hunting. A 7-8gr .177 pellet travelling @ 1000 fps will not deliver as much ft/#s of force as a 10.34gr .177 pellet travelling in the high 800s. ...

exactly... if I use my .177, then I rely on head and heart shots. When I carry the .25, a center mass shot is sufficiently effective. ...
| Outdoor Board|| re: Pellet Gun Question - BigDropper on 12/25/14 at 3:51 pm|
.177 is sufficient & relies on a well placed shot. The .20, .22 & .25 deliver more ft/#s of force & are forgiving if the shot is off a bit. How much you willing to spend?...
| Food and Drink Board|| re: Boiling shrimp that have been frozen - BigDropper on 12/17/14 at 9:04 pm|
In my experience, frozen shrimp benefit best from a long slow poaching in a well seasoned liquid. I like to prepare my poaching liquid up to a half hour in advance to ensure the flavors have permiated well into the water. After bringing the poaching liquid to a full boil I add the shrimp & remove fr...

I'm curious to know about moisture retention. In a traditional brine the osmotic process replaces the liquid in the cells of the tissue with seasoned liquid. How does a dry brine ensure moisture retention with regards to salt's propensity to extract liquid from cells? ...
