    You guys are a more forgiving bunch than I am. I disowned my brother for buying pre-smoked grocery store turkey.

    The store expects on a level that you're gonna smoke it more and simmered in Dr Pepper. It's not great as you buy it. Smoked more and it'll hit the spot.

    Call your brother.

    I don't feel like cooking and it's my turn.

    It's Pizza tonight.

    Frozen from the store with extra pepperoni, black olives, jalapeno slices and cheese added.

    Well , first... WTF? Ummmm....what was the point again? Isn't that like buying a POS shooter, spending a grand upgrading to get something sub- par to off the shelf under a grand?

    Call my brother? You call him. I was kidding about the storebought thing, but he is about as mentally unbalanced as Hill Billy. Last time I called him to relate something I thought he might find interesting, he accused me of trying to give him my life story. Then he got really weird, and said : " Why did you always have to be better than me...... going back to our our childhood. "

    I said: " Dude! We're both over 60yrs. old. I wasn't trying to be better than you, I was trying to be the best in the world."

    My ex wife wife said of my sainted mother:"She's going to Heaven, we're both going to hell." Even MY MOTHER doesn't like him. He is totally self-absorbed deranged.

    Back to topic: I'm actually working on repurposing a seafood salad into a crab cake recipe. First run wasn't bad, a bit too sweet and not quite holding together as well as I would like. Next adjustments; white vinegar, cracker crumbs, and another egg to the existing mixture. Still pan fried in butter/olive oil for now.

    I always say, if you got it right the first time, it must have not been that hard. On the near horizon, reconstructing the McRib in a user friendly form for me. Maybe to the point of reconstruction of the patty itself.

    Maybe I'll get some teeth soon, and I can take that off the list, but, I still have to adjust the spice level on stuff, and I'm getting to the point I can copy just about any dish in a nearly UNspicy ( heat wise) configuration.

    Been thinking about opening a restaurant called: 'Not So Hot' , offering everything in a level from no heat to burn your tongue off, with identical flavor, so mixed matched couples can experience how the other half lives.
