Moving help? - tewino
I have a friend in BR who is moving to Michigan next month and needs a cheaper way to move stuff than the big moving companies. I'm thinking uHaul and self load/unload but she doesn't want to do the labor. Any thoughts? Would like someone to load a truck, drive truck to MI and unload to apartment....

re: My Austin Food Plans This Weekend: - tewino
[quote]Does their menu rotate? [/quote] Not sure. We went for lunch. Not a stuffy place at all but very nice. Food was outstanding but you must order the biscuits as well- they are otherworldly. Everyone says that about biscuits but this is fo real....

re: My Austin Food Plans This Weekend: - tewino
I had the biscuits at Olamaie before. They are soooo good. Off the menu for some reason. They also will not allow take out of the biscuits as they say they are best fresh. I can understand that as the texture would change by the time you got home. I think they want their reputation to hold up I...

re: Po boy bread.....hinged or 2 separate pieces? - tewino
Po boy = 2 separate pieces Hinged = hoagie = yankee = NOT a po boy. It is very frustrating to order “po boys” up here in BR or really anywhere outside Nola area and get a friggin hinged hoagie on soft bread. Appreciate what you have right here- a proper po boy on 2 pieces. ...

re: Anyone ever smoke a chuck roast? - tewino
Thanks for the advice. It seems like a chuck roast would be similar to the point of a brisket and could turn out like "burnt ends" if done right. I like Twenty 49's link. I may try it soon....

re: Need a Smoker / grill combo - tewino
[quote]WSM and. Weber kettle[/quote] This is the correct answer. I also have a BGE which is great, but it is NOT a smoker. Sure you can rig it to smoke, just like I can rig my screwdriver to be a chisel, but a chisel does a better job at chiseling. ...

re: French Truck on Government St - tewino
