‘Pure’ vodka claims to ease hangovers

This has been well known for years. Same with barbiturates. Repeated dosing reduces the hangover effect.

Polishing knife VG10 blades

Polishing compound may help but when I've had scratches in my Tojiro 240 I tried to get rid of them but finally I just use the green scrubby and or sand paper to make the whole blade brushed. I don't worry bout scratches these days. As long as the blade is razor sharp I'm happy. It's a tool not art

First time posters

Yes, but it does seem rather odd that all of a sudden there are a lot of one time posters resurrecting old threads or responding to new ones to praise something or another and never making another post of any kind.

I'm not saying it's a conspiracy but something did change to account for these as I call them one post wonders to come out of the woodwork.

How to Remove Aluminum from Bottom of Oven

Be very careful with sodium hydroxide. It can blind you really fast if it gets in your eyes. Wear gloves and eye protection

My wife did this to our oven. Grrrrr... I recently ran it through the self cleaning cycle and then just scraped away anything left behind with a brush.

Funny, I never remember the frequent use of the word pedantic. But now it's used quite a lot and oftened premised with I hate to be pedantic but...... As they go on and nit pick about something or another. Being very pedantic! Lol. Not just here but on other forums as well. There, I think I've said that word more just now than I have in my entire lifetime.

Is a cure needed for making beef jerky ?

The Mortens tinder quick is for long curing. Better to use cure #1

Even if you don't catch one order it if you see it on a menu. Do your part to help save our reefs

Humans have a record of decimating a species in record time. I'm sure we can handle the Lionfish if we wanted to

They hang close to structure which makes them difficult to catch on a line.

What would you do with a can of duck rillettes?

Hard to beat spreading on a great crusty loaf.

I just made a chicken rillette with a 4 pack of sous vide chicken confit thighs I had in the fridge the other day.

The other problem is that I have not seen them for sale anywhere except in S. Fla and the Keys. Not being caught in enough numbers to export

All You Can Eat Lionfish, an over population solution

I should restate that they are not caught by cast or drag nets. One by one with an aquarium hand net or spear and net. I had it in the Keys several months ago. Very good. Clean tasting flacky white flesh. But at a similar price to grouper it is hard to get people to try it. We are it's only predator so get busy and eat more lionfish.

All You Can Eat Lionfish, an over population solution

They taste very good but you won't find them at a bargain all you can eat fish fry. They are caught by spear not net so lots of man power needed to harvest

Crock-Pot Cuisine -- are you kidding?

And ovens

Is Thremapen the only option?

Boy it sure does look like a good Chinese knock off of the Spashproof. Specs are close. Worth the gamble of $28
