Brisket Help - No Grill, No Smoker

I ask this question from a food safety point, and I would not eat meat held at that temp. for that length of time, and I do not care if some world class chef says its ok, no disrespect to you or the chefs.

Rolling out Lefse

We used this recipe (shortcut) that was on Heavy Table and made it last Sat.11/19/11, we have tryed many recipes and this one is a winner. And yes, lefse is very big here in Minnesota. Just buy the pin cover and put it on a regular rolling pin. Lots of lefse stuff at Fleet Farm

Surdyk's Liquor infuriates Surly Nation!!!

Yes yes, this Surly Nation stuff has taken on a new face, not just local beer fans, with all due respect to the Nation, they seem to be over the top out of control rabid beer snobs. Just do not buy it if the price is too high, move on to a different store that is in your price range. And yes, get a real cause in life.

Surdyk's Liquor infuriates Surly Nation!!!

In an earlier post Fudist says they charge 10.00 per bottle to stores so ok, business logic says Surly must be making money at 10.00 per, if in fact its true? Ok let’s just go with that number, why is no one asking people were charged 18.00 per onsite at Surly?

Surdyk's Liquor infuriates Surly Nation!!!

In defense of the Surdyk family, and having grown up in the Bar/Restaurant/Liquor business myself, I’m sure Jim Surdyk was selling a much hyped limited edition beer for what he thinks is a fair retail price and certainly not the 18.00 the brewery was selling it for onsite. Having shopped at Surdyk’s for many years, high prices and price gouging has never crossed my mind, or the millions of customers the Surdyk’s have happily served over a lot of years.
