Sheetz Eats

Will anyone confess to eating off the Sheetz menu, and how do you do your 3 for a dollar (with card) hotdogs.........just the no charge items ? Or do you splurge.
I've only had the dogs.....although stole a mozz stick from daughter and was pleasantly suprised.

Confused about cutting boards

Go to John Boos cutting boards site.....all I've ever used, and if cared for can become heirlooms.....

Lasagne...pre-cook noodles or ?

Over 20 years ago , while working at a large resort in Poconos, i learned to make lasagne without the pain of boiling noodles. Simply sauce a little more generously when making, cover first with saran wrap , then with foil..bake 1hr+- and let sit for 15 minutes , give or take....I try not to cover any dishes with tomato product directly with foil because it reacts to the acid in tomato, and I prefer to get my trace minerals elsewhere......

Taylor Ham/Pork Roll.... who sends it to California... CHEAP ???

Usually the purveyor will stock this in addition to the Boars Head line of products. If you can find the vendor in your local, might have or be able to special order. good luck

Taylor Ham/Pork Roll.... who sends it to California... CHEAP ???

Boars Head vendors typically carry the chubs....if there are BJ's on west coast they also carry a product about 3 pounds in weight.

Must preface by saying have not been on Chow in awhile, so sorry if this is a tired thread......
Looking for best pie in Raleigh area. (always prefered NY style}
Lilly's seems to always win Independent "Best of", but have had different experiences........Have enjoyed Silvio's pie's at J&S in Fuquay and Apex.......Anna's, or Annie's ok....NY has been very hit and miss for me.
Upon return to the area many have spoke highly about a place called Franks.....just looking for some takes recs........also looking for a killers cheesesteak.

SN Celebration

Picked some up several days ago Fresh Hop IPA......very enjoyable.......I thought they played around, and changed up the offering year by year.......in the past I have not seen "Fresh Hop " monicker.....or at least not recently, and it tastes distinctively different than last years offering.
Am I mistaken.
Thanks for takes and info.

Hop production

Thanks.....upon further investigation I learned the same...........Although would be nice for us east coaster's to be able to establish / boast about our own "cascade" hops.........and an indigenous IPA phenomenon like the west coast.....

Hop production

Washington,Oregon, Idaho..........major production areas in the US.
Recently read that State of NC looking into planting/ cultivating in the western part of the state (after experiencing the hop shortage).
How long might it take to become a viable production area and what might be the expectation for the hop characteristics grown in this area.....or would the growing environment impact greatly the flavor profile of the hop......?
