re: Need Chicago help: Alinea - Badmug
I always enjoy Piccolo Sogno on Halsted St. for rustic Italian with large outdoor patio dining. Dinner at Alinea will be amazing...it's an experience I've never forgotten. When in Chicago I always choose to stay at the Peninsula. It's centrally located with over-the-top service....

re: Houston foodies: Chris Shepherd's "One Fifth Steak" opens tomorrow - Badmug
STQ is better than B&B Butchers. Dinner reservations are running about 4-6 weeks out but there is first-come service at the small bar area. It's normally full also. You will leave STQ smelling like wonderfully amazing smoke that will remind you to return soon. Killen's A5 Strip is butter and the...

re: Anyone run wheel spacers? Paging JJBTiger2012 - Badmug
I just put Ridge Grapplers on my Tundra Platinum 4x4. They replaced a set of Mud Grapplers that I put 38k miles on. Both sets of tires are 295x55x20's and I have no rubbing issues at all. Truck is completely stock with no lift, spacers or leveling kit. The Ridge Grapplers are a whole lot quieter...

re: 20lb turkey in char broil oil less fryer? - Badmug
I own a Char Broil 3-in-1 SRG that I believe is larger than a regular oil less fryer. The lid is hinged to the "fryer" instead of a separate mesh lid. Manual says it will hold a 25lbs bird. I've done 20 lbs the last four years with no issues. I have already ordered a 23-25 pound turkey for this ...

re: Anyone use the Charbroil Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer for their holiday turkeys? - Badmug
I've owned a Big Easy SRG 3-in-1 for four years and I don't believe there's an easier way to "fry" a turkey. Mine holds up to a 25 pound bird. I leave the lid on for the first 30 minutes then off the rest of the cook time. If I recall correctly, cooking 10 minutes per pound is the ticket....

re: Anyone been to Grosse Savanne? - Badmug
I just took my dad over there for a three day trip this past April. As stated above, the highlight of our trip was the 500 acre lake. We caught more than 100 two to six pound largemouths in a couple of hours...all on topwaters. The morning before we checked in, a young rep from Hobie pulled a 12 ...

re: Need restaurant recommendations for Houston/Memorial City area - Badmug
Pour Society is now State of Grace and most definitely worth your time. If you want sushi Kuu next door is the way to go. Tons of great options right next door to that Westin. CityCentre is great for Eddie V's, Cyclone Anaya with the frozen drink sippers, and Flemings. If you want something truly u...

re: Need restaurant recommendations for Houston/Memorial City area - Badmug
Vallone's is immediately next door to the Westin. It's right up there with the very best steakhouses in town. They serve the best fried softshell crabs (off menu) you'll ever eat. Tony's meatballs are second to none. Excellent wine list and plenty of bourbons. ...

re: Need some Refrigerator Recommendations - Badmug
I brushed off the hate and purchased an LG six months ago. I couldn't be happier. Model LMXS30776S is a French door with a third custom chill drawer between the refrigerator and freezer. I use the door-in-door feature more than I thought I would. The LED lighting throughout is a nice touch. My ...

re: Favorite Decoy Brand - Badmug
I've got Dakotas and G&H's. I like the flocking on the Dakotas and the durability of the G&H's. They've got a couple seasons on them and still look really, really good. I'm not sure I can recommend one brand over the other but I would say both are top notch. They work. ...
