Yuppers, W V, another thing that the Wiffy gets all over me about is "tweeking something that's already good" :laughing7: :D :lol: I usually operate on the "If it ain't broke don't fix it principle" but then it comes to cooking and recipes, I'm not - - - I did some Granny Crackers for Company a couple days ago and decided to add 2 pkgs of Ranch Dressing Mix instead of just 1 and it was a mistake, However, they are almost gone and my oldest Stepson attacked them like a starving dawg. :laughing7: I also added a tblsp of SB Hootchie Mama and that was a good "tweek" so I'll be doing that again :tup:

thanks, Pal, I was just thinking today about how inconvenient it was to fire up the charcoal to do these so maybe when the Wiffy says "the boys are asking what you want for your Birthday" I will have an answer. :tup: I'm wanting to blacken some jumbo shrimp next :chef:

not to hijack your thread, but get ya a 50lb bottle it last for three or four years, and does not have the OFP valve which is a trouble mechanism in my book, the initial cost is high but over the long run its worth the extra money..

might take some doing because the Wiffy has a phobia of Propane because of a horrible fire that took everything they had - - - - I'll have to ease into this one ;)

sorry to read of that, I can see where it would present a problem, and create a phobia... I have a 50 attached to my Cajun burner, a 30 attached to my pizza cooker, and the gas grill is natural, so suffice it to say the back porch could take out two houses in any direction if the conditions were proper...

Oh boy, we two had a bad fire a few years back on the deck so we're limited on gas use although the grill caught fire because I missed cleaning a channel on the bottom of the grill where some grease built up and before I knew it, we had a fireball with a grill somewhere in the middle of it. It sucked because I couldn't initially get to the shut off valve to kill the source.
Eventually I got the tank unhooked and after a bit the fire finally went out.

So now, all we use gas for is the Big Easy

Finally found some Old Bay Blackening Seasoning in a WalMart in Palestine yesterday and fixed some filets "in the house" today. Didn't set off any smoke alarms but I found that I prefer the Zatarains Big Zesty Blackened Spice better BUT with the addition of Slap-Yo-Mama. Old Bay was not "bad" by any sense of the word and I will use it on dishes in the future but my taster leans towards da Big Z. :chef:
