Looking for wood *chunks* appropriate for smoking fish

Yeah I meant to add above that they are selling fresher, "local" wood than you will find in the Weber bags at Home Depot.

I think they told me not to even bother soaking them, which by looking online now seems like soaking any chunks doesn't really do much anyway.

The BBQ Barn in Arlington has chunks of a few different woods. Not cheap, but just what you are looking for.

Wholesale Clam prices increased over 50% this week !!? !!? Dairy Joy

Hey at least with the 50% wholesale increase this year, they are only raising prices 15% rather than 25% like last year!

Where do they claim this?
The menu doesn't say house-made.

Pubs for World cup viewing downtown.

Damn, now I'm bummed out.
I felt like I was the only guy wearing orange in 2010. Mostly went to The Druid and The Field (they opened up at 7:30am for me).

Sucks none of the Netherlands games are on the weekend, maybe they'll get one if they make it out of the group round though.

Lexington, new: Artistry on the Green? and il Cassale Cucina ?

Further towards the Arlington end of town?
These two places are a half mile apart, and Il Casale Cucina Campana + Bar is right downtown.

ICOB (Island Creek Oyster Bar): Our Best Blow-out Dinner in Years!!

There is now a softshell crab entree instead of that app (which I had and loved). Almost had it on Saturday, but was really just there for drinks and snacks.

Crispy Maryland Softshell Crabs - avocado mousse, cous cous, pickled ramps for $36.

Hot dogs

What's up with the dog on the sub roll though?
Way too much bread, that's my knock.

Narragansett/Del's Lemonade Shandy in Boston

They are also brewing/releasing it 2 more times during the summer. In August you'll actually be able to buy some...just as most summer beer is gone and fall seasonals hit.

Guy Fieri filming in allston

Hot dogs, sloppy joe's, fried chicken.

I also feel like they could show both Trina's/Parlor Sports and Deep Ellum/Lone Star on the same episode, as they both share a wall and a kitchen.

Brewpub for tomorrow night

Does he want a brew pub or a beer bar?
Cambridge Brewing Company is a brew pub and the beer is great but the food stinks.

Comparing it to the same beer in 6/12oz format.
I forget how much the 6 packs are, but somewhere around $11-13 maybe?

Source for Freshly Rendered Duck Fat

Locally, my dad picked up some rendered duck fat at Wilson Farm in Lexington around the holidays last year. Don't remember if it was fresh or shelf stable or cost or anything though. It was a small container too, nowhere near the size OP talks about here.

Searching for a great Hot Dog as winter winds down.

Pretty sure you mean the Lower Depths, not Deep Ellum.

Food or cocktail classes

I took the Boston Shaker class a few weeks ago and it was great.

Dave's Fresh Pasta's classes are great too.

Menotomy Grill - Arlington (anyone been?)

Yeah the draft beer list is quite a bit better than when they first opened. I went once when they opened and I went again recently.

Do you ever sit at the bar? One of the bartenders when I went a few weeks ago was extremely awkward and terrible at his job. I figured the same thing that he must be a friend of someone...but even then, it was just incredibly bad. The other bartender just slapped menus down in front of us and didn't say anything. The two of them seemed to be on different planets and it was quite clear they didn't get along.

Very strange.

The mussel app was good and a large portion, but I wouldn't get the pulled pork sandwich again.

Sligo. The last operator of the Abbey (Steve) bartends most weekdays, so some of the same crew rolls over there.

Pizza and beer...

I won $150 playing Keno once at Newtowne by trying to lose (pick 12 numbers and hit 0 to win $4) but I hit 8/12 for $150.

Also, 5 years ago this April I went to my now girlfriend's birthday thing at Newtowne. Very memorable as a girl at the bar pissed herself and left without a shoe.
