This. If you want a crispier bark, don't wrap it. A butt is fatty enough that it will stay moist and tender without the foil wrap. It will take a little longer to cook since you won't...

Try on some Mauis and Costas. I have a pair of each. Prefer the Mauis for daily wear and the Costas for fishing. Maui has lighter, more comfortable frames. Lenses are nice, but Costa lenses are superior....

Yeah that straw is for stirring, not for drinking.

Does the trout get mushy in ceviche? I love ceviche and make it often, but I thought it was best suited for firmer fish. I've had it with snapper, tuna, swordfish, wahoo, etc. Never anything soft like trout....

[quote]Which ones have to be set?[/quote]
No set on a circle hook. I wouldn't use them for speckled trout. A fish has to get the whole circle in his mouth for a circle hook to set properly. You'll miss a lot of soft bites. They are fine for using cut bait to target bull reds.
They are also requi...

No doubt...and as you said, depth goes a long way in this league. Your team might not regress much from year "A" to year "B", but when you have to keep up with the rest of the league a small step up or drop off goes a long way. Going back to last year, you had probably 6 games that could have gone e...
| LSU Recruiting Board|| re: Why does it seem like most of the recruits we are after are must gets? - Woody on 5/21/13 at 10:48 am|
It's because LSU and its fans expect a team that will compete for SEC and national championships. To compete at that level, you must bring in the highest level talents. It's a talent arms race in the SEC and a program can fall behind quickly if they don't keep up. The stakes are high and there is no...

You'll probably spend $200-$250 on a double jet burner and a decent 100 qt pot. If this is a one-time thing, I'd look into borrowing one.
Ice the crabs before boiling. Put a thin layer of ice in an ice chest, place a layer of crabs, another ...
