re: Name something you gave up at a young age that you were good at - Dave_O
I was an above average long snapper in high school, but after going to college football games and seeing the size of those guys on the field on punt return teams, I didn’t regret my decision for one second. Those guys were bigger and faster than I was. ...

Ham Recipe - Dave_O
Does anyone have a “go-to” ham recipe that they’d be willing to share? We usually just get a Honey Baked Ham and I usually smoke a whole turkey or turkey breast for Thanksgiving/Christmas. It’s hard to beat a HBH, but there is always a certain amount of satisfaction that cooking a ham yourself can b...

re: Brine recipes? - Dave_O
I second the slaughterhouse poultry brine. But I round up to a TBS from 2 tsp and I use Old Bay instead of “Cajun spice”. I use this for my turkeys, along with the “Simon and Garfunkel” rub from amazing ribs. Spatchcock and onto the smoker until 160 in the breast. ...

re: Do you ever want a dip or chew years after you quit?? - Dave_O
I had to start dipping to quit smoking. I had no trouble quitting dipping, though. That was how I had to wean myself off of tobacco. But now, the thought of taking a pull off of a cigarette disgusts me, but I’d take a dip of SKOAL from the first person that offered it up. Kinda weird. ...

re: Coca-cola baste for ribs - Dave_O
I’ve used Dr Pepper for spritz. Turned the ribs a nice color, but I couldn’t taste a difference. As far as basting goes, I usually take some Stubbs BBQ sauce and thin it out with some sort of cola, usually Coke, DP, or Barq’s, and I’ll slather a thin layer of that on my ribs about 30-45 minutes befo...

re: Teet’s Tasso. - Dave_O
Thanks for all the recs, everyone. Will definitely save it for something down the road. Tried the sausage and boudin. I thought the sausage was great, really smokey, and the boudin, while it was a little spicier than I expected, was the best I’ve had. Delicious. ...

re: What is Guy Fieri? - Dave_O
My cousin lives in Santa Rosa (same town as guy), and he told me that all of Guy’s cars are yellow. Least surprising thing I’ve learned about him, as he seems like someone that would own multiple yellow cars. That being said, he seems to have a heart of gold. I’ve read where he donates a ton of mea...

re: Teet’s Tasso. - Dave_O
Thank y’all for the recommendations. I’ll save it for white beans and such. From what I’ve read about it, it certainly sounds like it would be good in shrimp and grits, too. While I’m here, I want to eat some of the boudin tonight. Best method to reheat? I had planned on grilling or smoking on a...

Teet’s Tasso. - Dave_O
I ordered some meat from Teet’s and it was delivered today. I ordered sausage, tasso, boudin, and HHC. I plan on making a gumbo tomorrow, and it will be chicken, sausage, and tasso. I’ve never cooked with tasso before, so my question is do I use equal amounts of tasso and sausage. Educate a Mississi...

re: Anyone here into metal detecting? - Dave_O
Ive got one at my parents house down the road. Haven’t used it much, though. My pawpaw used to detect all time along the MS River in the Natchez/Vidalia area. Found a ton of old glass bottles, a bunch of Minie balls, and a couple of cannon balls. ...

re: The "Let us donate on your behalf" corporate scam - Dave_O
My company likes to prod us to raise money for certain charities. Now I’m no CPA, but I’m almost certain that the only reason they ask us to do this is so that they can use those monies to make sizable donations in their name in order to reduce their taxable income. I may be totally wrong, but I fee...

re: Put sugar in my coffee this morning for first time in decades - Dave_O
That’s how I take an average cup (one Splenda packet to a 16-20oz cup of coffee). Dials any harshness back just enough to still be able to enjoy the flavor of the coffee. That’s Folgers or Dunkin. If it’s a good cup, I drink it black. ...

re: Old Man Advice - Dave_O
