Burgers in the Snow!

So today we decided to make some burgers on our Big Green Egg Mini Max. It was 35 degrees, Foggy and kinda rainy. But doesnt that just makes it more fun?

I find that ground chuck makes the best burgers, moist, meaty and full of flavor.

Unlike traditional grills where you cook over the open flame the BGE allows for a “reverse sear”. This is where you cook the meat indirectly at a lower temp. Just before they’re done, take them off the grill, place a cast iron griddle on the BGE and let it heat up to 500 degrees. When the griddle reaches 500 degrees, place pats of butter on it then the burgers. Keep them on there for 60 seconds per side.This will give them a nice char and be the best burger you ever ate.

2016 Election

Seriously folks…

So many people want to bitch about the candidates and their qualities, or the lack of qualities. Does anyone stop and think about how we got into this mess? We got into this mess because no one really cares about what is happening to our country. Oh sure we see some news on the internet or TV and think “this isn’t right, something has to be done”. But does it ever get done? Nope. Why? Because we are all fat dumb and happy sitting in front of the TV or computer. 50 years ago none of these candidates would even be allowed on the stage, let alone actually run for the presidency of the United States. All I can tell you is people better wake up because our country is being stolen from us, right before your eyes. When voting this November remember that the next president of the United States will be appointing at least 3 Supreme Court Justices. These are life long positions and will shape the future of our country for the next 1/4 century. If you believe that we need more Government meddling in our lives, more illegal immigrants coming in and making decisions about how your tax money is spent, stealing your retirement funds, your kids college tuition, then Democrat is the way to go. If you want less government, the ability to protect yourself from the illegals, the ability to retire at a decent age, maybe you want to think about voting Republican. Regardless of what you think of the candidate you need to vote for the future of our country. Don’t throw your vote away on a “third Party” candidate. They don’t stand a chance in hell of winning, so you better vote for the candidate that best suits your way of life.

Why Do Republicans Hate Donald….

Let me tell you….

In the last 30 years has anyone seen a real difference between a Democrat candidate and a Republican???? Sure they say different things while campaigning, but when elected they are all there for the same reason. Themselves!!!! None of them have a care in the world about you until the next election. They throw your money away, they make decisions that affect us all based on how it will make their lives better.

Why do they hate Donald??? Because he the scares the hell out of them. They can’t control him. He is a candidate that doesn’t owe anyone. Believe me, when someone makes a campaign donation, they are expecting something in return for the money they give. They are buying a vote. Nothing is FREE people. Its time we woke up and realized this. “Kick the Bums Out” was a slogan once upon a time. Its time to bring it back and kick out the established “Politicians” that have raped this country for far to long. My vote will be for Donald. Right, wrong, who knows, but one thing is Damn sure, a vote for Hillary is WRONG!!

 

Tailgaters

Why do people get so close to your car at a stoplight? You know in Northern Michigan, in the winter, the roads are slippery! Yet they run right up on your ass  at stop lights. Really? I pay a shit ton of money  for my vehicles, and I sure don’t  want some dumb ass wrecking it. Back the f*** off!

Maybe if Michigan was an “At Fault” state for insurance and they had to pay to fix my vehicle when they wreck it, they would understand they can’t do that!

Bicycles Bug Me!!!

 

I can’t believe how inconsiderate people can be when they are on a bicycle. They impede traffic by riding on the road and have no respect for cars! When I was growing up we were taught to move to the far right of the shoulder when a car was approaching from behind. Why??? because it was bigger than you and could KILL you. It had nothing to do with who had the right of way or if you were allowed to be on the pavement. It had all to do with self preservation. Now it’s like people don’t care. They will ride on the pavement with cars, trucks and semis driving past them. Unbelievable…..

Then we spent all of this money on bicycle paths, and they still ride on the road. WTF??? Why are they doing that?? Why aren’t they given tickets when a bike path is available and they choose NOT to use it????

If a farmer drives a tractor on the road they must have a slow moving vehicle sign. Now anybody can see a big ole tractor, yet they must have a sign, and I bet they are supposed to move over as soon as possible to allow traffic to pass. Bikes aren’t required to have a sign, a flag or anything, yet they are very hard to see, and they won’t move over to let traffic to pass. It’s unbelievable how rude people can be anymore. Its all part of the “Big Box Store Generation”….. More on that topic later.

Till next time remember…..
