    I can't believe people are still going nuts on the burger thread! Don't they have better things to eat a burger?

      They can't decide if it will fit in their buns.

      May 30, 2011 at 2:45 pm |
      • Queen of Everything@Richard

        I could see how tiny buns could be hard for them to find.

      And accusing us of excess fanciness.

      May 30, 2011 at 3:40 pm |
      • Queen of Everything@Kat

        Yeah, apparently I missed the memo where "Thou shalt refrain from burger fanciness" was added to the 10 commandments.

      • JBJ_from the Casa@Kat

        Yeah, I missed that memo too! And what is up with everyone claiming to have "better" potatoe salad recipe!!?? How do they know it's better, just sayin.

    Smoked spare ribs and pork tenderloin all day, the reward is sweet.

    Good morning peeples and welcome to Grilling Day #3! Sorry you are stuck at work my Queen...

      Hola,How did the chicken turn out?

      May 30, 2011 at 1:20 pm |
      • JBJ_from the Casa@RH

        It was the moistestest chicken I ever made! Took me 3 times to get the 1/2 can of beer though... ;)

        May 30, 2011 at 1:34 pm |
      • RichardHead@JBJ

        Where was Odie? Couldn't he help? Good deal on the chicken,you will become a BBQ Queen yet.

        May 30, 2011 at 1:38 pm |
      • SeaBee from Home Port @ JBJ

        Did you do the chicken on the grill? If so, care to share the procedure?

        May 30, 2011 at 1:41 pm |
      • JBJ_from the Casa@RH & SeaBee

        Odie was no help at all except when it came to eat! SeaBee – I used a beer can (1/2 a beer) stuck in the chicken butt, rubbed with OK Joe's rub and a little oil, on the grill (indirect heat) @ 350 for 2 hrs!

    Morning, all! I will be hiding inside recovering from the sunburn I received at the lake, yesterday. I managed to fall asleep in my chair and forgot to apply sunscreen. Ouch.

    • RichardHead

      So,you look like a lobster? Sorry about the burn. If you can find it,try ST-37,Walgreens might still stock it. Pour it straight in a spray bottle and have at it. Within 15 minutes the sting and pain are gone,plus it's not greasy. Is Tazer walking yet?

    • Truth@RichHead

      Good morning Bro...Quiet day here, just getting some work stuff cranked out.
      How are you and WD doing today?

      May 30, 2011 at 10:36 am |
      • RichardHead@Truth

        We are doing great. Made a charcoal run to WalleyWorld so I'm set for summer now. We are having Porterhouse steak with baked potato and veggies for dinner. Big Blue is all packed and ready to go for the late nite run. You and the Beautiful Bride cooking out today?

      • Truth@RichHead

        I am doing sirloins on the grill later today. She is working, though I doubt her shop will be too busy on a holiday.

        May 30, 2011 at 11:01 am |
      • RichardHead@Truth

        Kool! Waiting to hear from JBJ and see how the beer can chicken turned out. Don't work too hard today. :)))

    Good morning all and Happy Memorial Day! I'm stuck at work for 12 hours. :( This makes me sad.

    May 30, 2011 at 7:09 am |
    • RichardHead

      Happy Memorial Day All. I Thank You all for your service to our country. Turn that frown upside down Queenie,I've got Hot Apple Fritters just for you. Coffee is on!!

      • Queen of Everything@Richard

        Yay! Apple fritters! Pass them over here, my dear!

        May 30, 2011 at 7:40 am |
      • RichardHead

        I thought that would make you Happy. Glad I got a couple dozen. Did you stay away from playing with fire over the weekend? I didn't hear of any Big explosions in Indy so hopefully Indiana is safe!

      • Queen of Everything@Richard

        Hardy, har, har, Richard. I did not play with any matches. However, I did make the Peach Upside Down cake that was posted on here a couple of weeks ago. It turned out really well. Not too sweet and very yummy!

      • RichardHead@Queen

        I still haven't learned how to cook or bake while standing on my head.
