Best way to hold ribs for eating later in day? - creolechef
If I needed to smoke a few racks of ribs tomorrow morning but not eat them until later that night would it be ok to just pull them off smoker when ready and wrap in foil and refrigerate them? Best way to reheat without messing them up? Was thinking straight into a low oven while still wrapped in foi...

[quote]Just tell him to keep an eye on the timing chain issue. Here's the noise it makes at cold start. It's anywhere from $3-4k to fix. [/quote] Got it. Hopefully they have gotten that figured out in the newer models. He'd a stickler with on time maintenance so hopefully that will help too. ...

re: 2016 F150 w/ 3.5 ecoboost help - creolechef
That would be ideal, but this deal is almost too good to pass up. It was a hail damage truck that has had supposedly most of the major damage repaired. Can't sell as new so its over 12K under sticker with 55 miles on it. FIL doesn't care if it has a few minor hail dents for the price they are asking...

re: 2016 F150 w/ 3.5 ecoboost help - creolechef
[quote]I have a 2016 F150 XLT 4x4 with the 3.5 Ecoboost. I like the truck so far (about 27,000 miles). Gas mileage is pretty good at 21.0 mpg The truck is fun to drive with the Ecoboost turbo. I'm not a fan of the aluminum body because we use magnets for work to go in the plants. I went fr...

re: 2016 F150 w/ 3.5 ecoboost help - creolechef
His current truck is 4x4 and he wants it because it doesn't cost that much extra in his mind and likes to have it if needed. They have a lot of steep hills and roads where he lives and when he gets bad weather or snow/ice its a life saver....

Looking for a better setup to clean crawfish before boiling. Currently using a galvanized tub to wash them off but the difficult part is emptying the dirty water. Since I usually wash them 3-4 times its a pain to empty out the water without dumping live crawfish everywhere. Have been using my pots b...

re: Is It OK to Buy A Rental Car? - creolechef
Most rentals end up being sold wholesale or at auction and they get bought by dealers and stuck on their own used car lots for sale to the public and you'd never know it was a rental. Many times these are the ones the rental company deemed unacceptable to sell to the public on their own lots. So,...
