re: Wireless meat probes for smoker and oven - Badmug
I love my Fireboard and recommend the brand often. It sounds like it checks all the boxes you’re looking for. Yoder smokers are starting to incorporate Fireboards with their new 640 models. ...

re: Willowbrook Mall/ NW Houston food bar recs please - Badmug
Peli Peli at Vintage Park and Dario's Steakhouse on Cypress-Rosehill are both good spots not far from Willowbrook. I suggest an a la carte Veal Sweetbread Enchilada aside your entree at El Tiempo. Ask for their habanero hot sauce from the back....

re: Brett's BBQ Shop - Katy, TX - Badmug
I picked up a pan of prime beef brisket enchiladas from them on my way home today. They were excellent! Large flour tortillas were stuffed with big chunks (not shredded) of fatty and lean brisket along with some cheese. They were covered in his homemade chili queso sauce that would likely make eve...

re: Toadfish outfitters shrimp peeler deveiner - Badmug
I’ve been using mine for a year or so. As said above, once you get accustomed to how the tool needs to enter the meat of the shrimp, it’s a helluva time saver. I’ve given a few to friends and they’ve had the same experience. ...

re: Fishing recs for Grand cayman? - Badmug
I was there for a wedding five years ago and ran into the same issue...it seemed like none of the local guides gave a damn about taking a tourist fishing. I wanted to catch bones and tarpon on a fly. I ended up hooking up with Fish Bones. Davin Ebanks (draeco @ yahoo) was running the operation. W...

re: Cuban Cigars in Grand Cayman - Badmug
It's been a couple years since my last visit but the Westin on 7 Mile Beach used to maintain a fairly decent humidor of Cuban cigars in their lobby bar. If you can't locate a better option closer to the cruise terminal, take a 10 minute cab ride down to the Westin and see if they have something you...

re: Need a new cutting board - Badmug
I decided to invest in a nice one that I could leave out on the counter. Other cutting boards already take up too much cabinet space. Last December Bloodroot Blades offered a limited number of Black Walnut end grain boards made by one of their handle material suppliers. Water's Edge Woods might h...

re: Recs for automowers - Badmug
I don't have any direct experience with any of the robomowers but I have seen a fleet of the Husqvarnas at work. There's a 350 acre boutique get-away-from-the-city type place between Houston and Austin that runs 8-10 of the Husqvarnas on the ~25 acres that are improved. I have to say that those ma...

re: Anyone ever have any good experience buying A5 Wagyu online? - Badmug
I attended a two day brisket seminar on the Aggy campus last month. They had a blind tasting of five briskets, all of them seasoned only with s&p and smoked exactly the same. The American Wagyu was the overwhelming winner among the five criteria were given to judge them on. They get their Wagyu b...

re: Anyone subscribe to any coffee subscriptions - Badmug
I subscribe to both crema.co and Mistobox. Crema seems to be more reliable delivery-wise, once you figure out how often you'll need a replenishment. The user interface for Crema is easier to navigate in my opinion. Mistobox seems to require more weekly user interaction in order to select beans yo...

re: Fear of Flying - Badmug
Ativan. First Class. I also participated in a fear of flying phobia class in Houston that’s run by an FAA examiner and an ex-commercial pilot. Part of the class includes time in a flight simulator that I found immensely helpful. I took the two day seminar a few years ago. I now regularly and comfor...

re: Houston for the weekend - Badmug
Hotel Icon is downtown and would fit within your budget. It's nothing special but definitely nice enough for a good weekend impression. It's been a couple of years since my stay there but I found it comfortable and close to lots of food and bars...and worlds away from the IAH/Gunspoint scene. You...

re: Fishing Guides near Galveston Bay - Badmug
If you decide to slip over to East Matagorgda Bay, look up Capt. Lee Warmke who owns Half Breed Guide Service. He’s always on big trout in the winter and spring if you enjoy wading and slow rolling Corky’s and tops. He’s one hell of a fisherman and an even better person. He grew up on both East and...

re: Veal sweetbreads in enchiladas - Badmug
The funny thing is they’re one of the more reasonably priced items on the menu. It’s a little nuts when an $11 offal enchilada is considered ‘reasonably priced’ but that’s beside the point. I think most patrons turn their noses up at the thought of sweetbreads but the combination of spices and che...

re: Galveston eats - Badmug
La Vigna for very good Italian. Mario’s on 61st Street (not Seawall!) for great pizza and alfredo. Number 13 for excellent steaks and drinks overlooking Offatts Bayou in a marina setting. Rudy and Paco is always great. BLVD for seafood. Shrimp n Stuff on Ave O for old school fried seafood. Avoid al...

re: Veal sweetbreads in enchiladas - Badmug
Those are the best damn enchiladas I’ve ever had, bar none. I’ve told anyone who would listen that they’re wasting their time with anything else on the menu. We usually hit the Gessner location but I assume all the stores are now serving them. One can never go wrong by ordering Filet Asada La Tana...
