Comment: Re: I lost interest when I saw brisket (Score 1) 129 129

Tri-tip is well known in California but harder to find outside of California, and makes a great slow cooked alternative to brisket.

Leaner than a brisket, it is a little trickier, but it gets a good smoke ring and can be done either medium rare or cooked until falling apart. Anything inbetween is a little tough. Also, I can get them in about a 2 to 3 pound cut Price is slightly higher than brisket, but I don't have to buy so much at a time. It is triangular, so I can cook one end more well done and the thick end is more rare. This make it a hit with those who like their meat a specific doneness.

The first meal we get from it is usually just sliced a little thick and served with potatoes or something.

Leftovers are added to a mixed green salad with red onions, blue cheese, dried cranberries and raspberry vinaigrette. Yum... I am drooling already.

That seems a lot more complex of an argument if the document says what Bartlies says is in the definitions section.

So why are they arguing that if the definitions section makes it clear without a typo?

(A typo an author of the bill says is not there, that is exactly what they intended to do: punish states that did not set up an Exchange)

Buy the book Flour Water Salt Yeast and make your own.

It is easy and tastes better than anything you can get at a store. (but maybe not if you live near a real bakery)

Oh, and it is geeky fun... Stoichiometry, cooking by weight not volume, temps, growing yeast cultures in your spare time!

I spend about 2 to 2.5 hrs a week to make enough bread for a week, most of which I do while on conference/support calls.
