Mission BBQ - Glen Burnie

Was in Glen Burnie on Saturday and swung by Mission BBQ. I'd heard good things so we gave it a try. Was very busy, but our order was right up. Great staff...wasn't sure what sauce to try so they gave us some of all of them....We got two racks of ribs, brisket, mac n cheese...The ribs were pretty dry, my family said the ones I do on the old Weber are much better. The brisket was good..I like them a little fattier, but the flavor was there...so tender. The mac n cheese could have come out of a box...non descript. I do have to say that this was carry out...and about a half hour drive home...so maybe eating there the ribs might have been better....I'm gonna give it another try eating there....

On a side note.....KBQ is open again. This time in Lanham (how this is called Lanham I have no idea..it's really Largo). It's in the same shopping center as the Wegmans. Haven't tried it yet.

Roy's Hawaiian Fusion at Harbor East - Baltimore

I never see this place mentioned on here. We went I'm thinking close to ten years ago or so....had a family member keeping a boat close by, and I remember having a great time and some delicious spicy seared Ahi Tuna...now it's been awhile, and I'm sure there were lots of cocktails involved.....so my memory may be clouded....is it worth checking out again?

Kitchen staples you have now....that you didn't grow up with

Masha....we always had the ReaLemon as well growing up. Never real lemons. Although my wife still keeps the RealLemon in the fridge to add to water...even though we keep real lemons on hand all the time...go figure

Flav....that made me laugh. But I hope ice was a staple in your house.

Kitchen staples you have now....that you didn't grow up with

Was throwing together a dinner tonight with whatever I could find in the kitchen. Used cilantro, capers & sriracha to make salmon cakes. These are three ingredients that our house always has on hand....we always make sure we have them....but had never even heard of them growing up. What are your must have on hand staples that you didn't have in the house growing up?

Fried Turkey?

Expressway Pit Beef in Odenton has them

We fry a turkey and smoke a turkey every year, I prefer the smoked turkey, but the fried is pretty awesome as well.

Weber Grills

Thanks for all the input....

Any input on the burners going left to right as to up and down? It seems all the newer Weber grills have the up and down burners...was the old left to right a problem? I was thinking indirect heat cooking....but thats something I'd usually do on the Kettle anyways....any thoughts?

Weber Grills

Ray...I'm with you... the Genesis seems like a much more quality grill....but for what I'm going to use it for, not sure it matters....I just need something to not rust out after a year or two. On a side note....I always keep my gas grills under a cover once they've cooled off.

Weber Grills

I hear you Mike...and that's what I'm hearing from some of my BBQ friends...why go gas? Thinking about it...it doesn't seem to take much longer as you said....but by the time I get home from work my girls have already eaten...and to fire up the charcoal for a burger or chicken breast just seems easier on the gasser...plus the cost of lump is more than gas. You've got me thinking though...do I really need it.

Weber Grills

Glad they started a grilling/BBQ board...much needed.

Question for you guys....Weber Spirit 310 vs older Genesis 310 (new in box). A little background.....I'm a charcoal/wood guy...love my Weber kettle, have had it for over ten years. It sits outside w/o cover, has never rusted and I use it all year long. I'll never give it up. But I've always had gassers for those weeknight dinners that I don't have time to mess with charcoal. The problem is in the same time I've had my Weber kettle I've been through 3 CharBroil gas grills...they just rust out. So I've decided to buy a Weber gas grill. They never put these things on sale! I came across a Genesis 310 for $469. It's a little bigger than I need for weeknight stuff, but a great deal. Then doing a little research, it must be a 2010 because the burners run left to right, with knobs on side. I'd much rather have the burners run up and down with knobs on front. Question is...am I passing up too good of a deal with the older (new in box) Genesis vs the 2013 Spirit which is running at $499? Sorry for such a long post.

Getting to Grace Garden via bike

None of those roads are very bike friendly, especially 175. dpan has a good suggestion, would only be a 10 minute bike ride from the MARC station. But again, be careful of that section on 175.

I would be more worried about my bike getting stolen while there.

Leftover Gumbo

I made shrimp and sausage gumbo Sunday afternoon, we enjoyed it Sunday and leftovers were going to be eaten for dinner tonight. Plans got in the way and weren't able to eat it tonight and won't for the rest of the week. I say it's okay to freeze now two days later, wife thinks not. Any thoughts? ( it was cooked Sunday, and the leftovers were left to cool on the stove then put in fridge)

Best Burger in Annapolis

I finally made it to Stoney River. What a great burger. They only had the guyere and carmelized onion burger...nothing added just great beef.....fantastic. And the fries were pretty good too. Was 14 bucks and my beer was 5 thought it was worth it....then I looked up online and saw their happy hour prices... 7 for burger and 3 bucks a beer....should have sat in the bar! LaststandChili, do you know if its the same burger at the bar? Either way, I've been there twice in the last two weeks....next time I'll try and be there for happy hour

Cooked White Rice.....how long does it keep?

I have a container of white rice from a take-out place that's a week old. Would you still use it? Was getting ready to throw it out for trash day tomorrow and then I thought some fried rice using the leftover veggies in the fridge with an egg mixed in would be good....just not sure about the rice. It's still in the cardboard container, so it hasn't been sealed tight.

What say you......eat or pitch?

Shoreline Seafood in Crofton

I stopped by Friday and they only had frozen. Couldn't get anyone to tell me if they'd be getting live ones. Then on Sunday a friend was in there buying crabs and he said they had them live. Maybe next weekend.

Frederick beer

I love some of the Flying Dog beers. And their art work is great. I I have family in Frederick and have yet to take their tour. Putting that on my list of things to do this summer.

Someone must be eating there...

My Grandmother who passed away last summer at 90 used to love Calvert House. As well as Sir Walter Raleigh in Greenbelt. Got a chuckle out of someone saying Mrs K's Toll House. I remember my brother taking his Senior Prom date there in 1980. He was going big time!

Anyone know if the Golden Bull is still there? Same general area. That place was tacky back in the early 80's, but people loved it.

Shoreline Seafood in Crofton

They had some crawfish yesterday. He wanted me to come over and buy them, but I was calling about this weekend, and he said he's not sure, as the supply has been limited this year in La. Guess it's been weather issues down there, flooding etc. Hopefully they will get some. I've never done them myself and wanted to do a test run this weekend while the family was gone.

Calvert House Inn in College Park/Riverdale comes to mind. I was recently over that way and was surprised it was still there.

Blue Tilefish

Was recently given a nice big Blue Tilefish filet and have never heard of this fish. It looks like a Rockfish filet and I am thinking I should treat it the same way. Any suggestions from someone who has had this fish? It's skinless, and was freeze packed.

Shoreline Seafood in Crofton

It's been a few years, but used to go there quite a bit. Never had any problems, although I did once get mussels from them and wasn't happy with how many were dead...but that has happened at other places as well. I've gotten crabs, boxes of frozen king crab legs, squid, rockfish and have always been pretty happy. I haven't been to the new Wegmans yet, but I wonder how much of an impact they will have on Shoreline. I do know that Shoreline will have live Crawfish, and am planning on picking some up this year.

In Search of Fried Chicken

I love Royal Farms chicken. I know its fast food chicken, but its good. Much better than any of the other fast food chicken. A 3 piece and a side of wedge fries, right out of the pressure cooker.....that's good stuff. When my daughter was younger she thought it was weird we were buying our dinner at a gas station....but she loved it.

BTW...the is one in Crofton now.

My Butcher and More-Annapolis

Lack of business. It really is a shame too. People don't support local businesses and would rather run in Whole Foods. you won't get the kind of service they gave at My Butcher & More. He's still on his facebook.

BBQ--looking for the best

There is a good recipe on Chow for white BBQ sauce. In my house it gets mixed reviews, but I like it....Like Crunch said, on well seasoned BBQ chicken

Foods not to miss in D.C. area.

Steve has it right. You will be in Arlington already, the Quarterdeck is the place to go. And the crabs are starting to come in nice and heavy here in the bay. (although I'm not sure where the Quaterdeck gets their crabs) It amazes me how many people don't really think about crabs after Labor Day, when Sept & October are the best times for crabs.....This is the time of year we eat crabs at least once a week....

Frozen gyro meat?

I will check with the wife again, but she said that's where she gets it. We have some in the freezer now, but had taken it out of the box to save room, so I'm not sure what brand it is. I know it said Halal Gyro meat on the box
