Put them in your pot, cover them with water and bring them to a boil. After one hour, turn the fire off and let them sit for two hours. After two hours, add two boxes of Tony's (large size), a quarter box of salt and bring them back to a boil. The second boil won't take long and you should start tas...

[quote]They serve both, have always served both and they cost the same.[/quote]
They do on the menu price of the fish platters but the food costs are factored in and the fish is portioned to suit.
Try ordering a seafood platter. It normally comes with the thin cut. Ask them to substitute regul...

They still have it.

It does. That's why they charge extra if you substitute regular fillets for the thin cut....

We have had Cracker Barrel Convenience Stores in LA probably longer than Cracker Barrel Restaurants. There must not be any in your area.

There are no rules...only opinions and these opinions are influenced by where and how you grew up.
Back when money and groceries were both scarce, people used what they had and a lot of what they had depended on where they lived. That's why the opinions vary so much by region. I can also tell you...

Most places, that I know about, are already mentioned. Ed's Shenandoah Hardware, on Jones Creek Rd, always carries a good selection of equipment, as well.
Bohning's Supermarket, in Ponchatoula, will also cut your meats and sausage if ordered a couple of days ahead. It really helps out if you're d...

[quote]Damn! You have a 50 gallon pot? [/quote]
No, but I do have one that is something north of 30 gallons. I usually do a "3 to 1" meat to rice ratio when I cook a Jambalaya and I can't get 50 lbs of rice, in the pot, if that is the case. If I'm doing a benefit or fund raiser, to decrease cos...

Thanks for the info, MD. :thup:
Haven't eaten at Chili's much since my son grew up and out but now I'll make sure to hit them up, for a meal, every now and then. If they're willing to donate $50 mil to St Judes, then I'm certainly willing to toss them a $50 on occasion.
